Miracle-Gro?

by TurtlesAllTheWayDown about June 30 - report

I know there are some real fans and advocates of Miracle-Gro on this site (sarcasm). So, in your honor I have decided to do a Miracle-Gro only grow on two of my outdoor plants. These two plants were started from seed created accidently in a friend's grow. I didn't want to mix them in with my feminized seeds so I planted these two in two different spots away from my primary site. One is in an old compost spot where I used to throw garden waste and the other is actually growing on top of the 8 foot tall pile of dirt that is my shooting backstop. Both get pretty good sun, with some mixed shade/sun late in the day.

Both of these were runty when they started and I put them in these spots thinking that they wouldn't make it. To my surprise they are doing OK. They've received nothing but water or Miracle-Gro all purpose plant food (they blue crystal kind you mix in water, ~1 tablespoon per gallon water).

    Your making it work but I wouldn’t expect any converts on here. I do enjoy telling people at Lowes that MG is owned by a devil worshipers that don’t pay taxes because they give it all to their “church”.

    I don't know why MG has got such a bad rap . Do you ever prune your plants ?

      When I grew indoors years ago I always topped my plants. This is my first outdoor grow and I'm going as low maintenance as possible. Put them in the ground and let them grow.

    MG is great stuff for flowers and landscape plants outdoors but I've never tried it for cannabis. My ex-wife used it for impatiens and they were monsters every year. The issue I've heard about MG and weed is the release of too much Nitrogen later in the grow when you're trying to back off N and increase P and K.

    MG is ok in veg. I'd think it would work better outside since mother nature does a good flush. I use it occasionally to straighten out deficiency issues.

    I used MG, veg and flower formulas, years ago when I first started growing.

    Back in the day, there was no internet, and you used what you could buy locally.

    MG works well. The only issue I had was the need for more frequent flushings. MG will build up salts in your soil quickly if you don't flush them out.
