Perfect poison

by Jesse420 about August 1 - report

I’ve been very busy lately about what i can do especially later on.. so pls bear with me. I might get redundant.. correct me if i am wrong, but dry kool bloom is a supplement right? Not a base? I have read supplements shud still go with base, so what’s gunna happen if i follow that is half str of foxfarm tiger bloom (2-8-4) + 1/8tsp of dry kool bloom. All per 1gal of water. I know u shouldn’t mix diff brands to avoid reactions and stuff, and... i am warned that dry kool bloom is very potent. And this is gonna be fed to autos.. so.. how would you deal with this?

    I think its always the safe bet to go easy on supplements at first to see how the plants react but when I look at the feed charts for Fox Farms and GH they dont seem to back off the base nutrients when they add the boosters.

    IMO the base nutrients have elements the plants need but the boosters may not have so I keep feeding the base at the same strength or maybe a little less. There is some trial and error in there for everyone  

    Dont tear out the foundation to add on to the roof

    It isn't a suppliment. It is a big PK booster. It has a high PK ratio and that is nutrients. I would start out at 1/8 teaspoon half way through flowering and you may not need anymore than that with autos. You might want to back off your base bloom nutrients a little too. The few autos I have grown didn't want nearly as many nutrients as most photoperiod plants. It will take you a grow or 2 to get it dialed in but after you do you will be proud to be using it. Good luck and happy growing my friend!!

      Thats true its not a supplement I guess additive would be a better description since you dont have to use them at all. I fed my autos full strength but deep down I may have been trying to kill them.

    Supplement ratios are very low sometimes .1 sometimes but it's an easy way to tell. Supplements are like vitamins there are so many companies just trying to get market share. I believe in them and like to use them. How I feed is I dont feed them supplements if I'm giving them base nutrients so one time I'll feed base then next feed water and cal-mag only, then I'll feed supplements. I have good results using liquid seaweed.

    I don't use the same nutrients as you, but when i used Dry Koolbloom i would only use it the last 3 weeks of flower right before the flush because it is a finisher. This stuff is very strong, and that is why it is used as a finisher at the end of the grow. When i used it i always cut my base bloom nutrient in half for those last 3 weeks. Now with auto's you will need to do the same or you are going to give them way too much flowering nutrients imo. Now if you think the plants can take all of these nutrients then by all means go ahead and give it a try, but i wouldn't do it myself. I use MOAB now and use it the same way i used the Dry Koolbloom. I tell people all the time that less is usually a lot better than more when it comes to using nutrients on weed plants, and this is especially true with auto's. I wish you the best.  Peace
