Has anyone ever used Nutes from ILGM. I’m so confused, the description of the booster says to use during preflower, but the instructions say not to use the booster until weeks 6-7 of actual flower. Can someone clear this up for me. Maybe someone from ILGM might be able to shed some light.
According to the feed.schedule, you dont use the booster until week 6. You use the flower ferts preflower ( week 1 starting). Are you in soil?
I am in soil. That’s what I’m saying, I read that. But go to the description of the product that they give you in the bi-line. After I read the description for the booster I was like That’s not what the use direction say.
10 grams of Plant Booster

N-P-K = 0-27-27
I dont boost like that with those numbers until week 5. BUT, i would def email ILGM and clarify. That would confuse me also.
Yep, I’m on week six feeding in about 3 days, I do have overdrive and other items. But wanted to be sure about the boost! Thanks for your reply!
Can you mix plant booster with flower
Yes. But I’m surprised no one from ILGM has responded to my email. I thought it was a simple question!
This is only my second grow using their fertilizer. And I have a georgia pie that is blowing up just wanted to make sure that I could mix that plant booster thank you.
I got an answer. Thanks for reaching out.
The schedule listed below is correct, we are rewriting the web page, thanks for letting us know.
Please download the feeding schedules below for usage guidelines. Always take your personal situation into account and apply nutrients accordingly. Make sure to use half the amount of nutrients for Autoflowering plants.
- Dissolve the nutrient powders in room temperature tap water (20ºC / 68ºF)
- Stir well and adjust to the optimum pH value if needed
- Be sure to consult our guides section to learn more general information about feeding your plants
- Check out our Nutrient section to troubleshoot any problems regarding nutrients.
Man i am so glad that they are now advising to split the dosage in half for autos…
Right, I have experienced nutrient lockout with Foz Farms for the same reason.
I have this one grow I’m currently doing. I tried a potato pot, simply because I have never grown in a tall pot. The first time I watered I realized why no one uses that. It had so much water left that it didn’t dry. So the second time i just dumped a gallon of water in there and it instantly ran off. The smell was horrible. Since it was so tall and so much soil there was nothing I could do but bring it outside and let tge bottom sit on the soil, and throw away the funky runoff. I thought to myself I will have to toss this plant, it will surely have root rot. But I didn’t I said screw it let’s see what happens. Fast forward 9 week later I didn’t have to water, She flipped to flower with no issues and is still going strong. Finally around the end of week 10 about 3 weeks into flower the top dried just a litter and I was able to give her 3 whole cups of water. I have never seen anything like this. I want to try it again after this finish, but first i want to see the yeild and see how she smokes. With an automated tent and only watering once and endind up with quality buds would be a major win! This is her today getting ready for week 5 of flower.
Funny thing is, as I was building the soil I put watering tubes deep in the soil to make feeding easy, and never used it once. Thoughts? I also included a picture of the pot. It’s not fabric, it’s like wiker from china says it was for potatoes
Wow. Id say you got lucky. Usually if the roots sit damp like that , you have major issues with root rot, ph, ect… good job! The key to having a successful grow is finding which way works best for you. Id steer away from those pots next time though, add a little more perlite to your mix, and use fabric pot. Cannabis prefers a dryer soil with plenty of ixygen
Like I said fluke! All my grows are in fabric for sure. I guess I was experimenting because I hermied a plant and got plenty of viable seeds that didn’t get the gentic traits of the herm plant. But yes I agree with the pot situation. I guess what saved it is, if you look at the picture there is a side door where you would take to potatoes out I left that open for a while. Also with my top mix its not soil. It’s my own recipe, so everything in there retains moisture well and the soil is pretty airey.
Horse manure composted
Chicken manure composted
Peat Moss which is why I use less perlite
40% Home made worm casting
and Coco mixed in. Then I add the desired nutes in the the correct spot. I am a week away from one harvest 4 weeks away from another and 8 autos of various strains just popped! I woke up this morning and saw all the little 2 leaves sticking up. All but the GG auto from ILGM. Had nothing but problems from them.
Thats awesome bro. I try to steer clear of chicken manure unless its cooked at least a year… your grow looks great. Im experimenting with a supersoil i cooked since may for my winter project. 25 gal pots with recycled coast of maine on top with supersoil on bottom…water only / molasses with tea boosters during flower… the back 2 are about a month old
Yep, I’m right at that year mark on my chicken manure! 8 months on the casting and a year plus on the horse manure.
So I did 9 auto seeds. After 3 days all were ready for the soil. All but the GG4 auto. I gave it one more day in the glass and nothing. I said you know what I will start another seed, but I will put this one in the soil anyways. that was 3 days ago and nothing. This morning nothing. I said when I get home I will put the new seed in the soil and just use the soil I prepared. Wouldn’t you know it the son of a &!%@# popped. So I guess tomorrow I will be building a new pot. The last GG I grew from this batch came out airey and flavorless. My worst grow ever, but it gets you stoned af and since there is literally no flavor not even hay, it mixes well with everything. I’m pretty sure it was my fault, so I’m glad it popped and I get a chance to redeem myself. Also got my vivosun hub in so it should lessen my errors.
Thats how ive ended up with 13 plants…
