I am no expert but this is the feeding schedule I am going to follow. I am also going to be adding ChaChing, but haven’t decided the right time to start it. However, I have about another 3-4 weeks before I will have the money to purchase these nutes.

Week 1 pH water only
Week 1.5 add in Big Bloom to the mix at 1/2 teaspoon
Week 2 – 1/2 tsp Grow Big 1/2 tsp Big Bloom
Week 2.5 – 3/4 tsp of grow big
Week 3 – 1tsp grow big and 1/2 Tiger bloom 1/2 tea spoon Big Bloom
Week 3.5 – 1/2 tsp Grow Big 1/2tsp Tiger bloom
Week 4 – 1tsp Tiger bloom 1/2 tsp Grow Big
Week 4.5 – Clean pH’ed water to clear out any salt build up
Week 5 – 2tsp tiger bloom 1/2 grow big
Week 5.5 – 1 Teaspoon Grow Big
Week 6 – Begin Flush for the final weeks.

I agree with lowblower and amaximus instead of Sam’s schedule. I am in the process of harvesting my auto’s and they went just over 9 weeks. I have always heard about the 1/8 to 1/4 nutes but have never abided by it. I went heavy on puropse with this grow and fed them way more than I have in the past with the intention of burning them up. I have used Botanicare the last few years with the addition of purple max snow storm. The strain was NYCD and proved to be very hardy. I understand the 1/4 to 1/8 but resist it.

Most feeding schedules are for 12 weeks so that means that there is a difference of less than 3 weeks when growing auto’s. That can be easily adjusted in the flowering weeks. I strongly encourage you to use veg nutes for the first 3 weeks. using that 3rd week as your transition week and use both veg and bloom nutes. I hit them pretty hard with bloom nutes through 7 weeks then I start to ease off on weeks 8 and 9.

If you are growing more than 1 I would suggest trying nutes at different powers. Experiment with a full power then go down from there to see exactly for yourself. I believe that soil or coco makes a difference too. Coco is more forgiving and it is also easier to flush.

I have a seedling that's an auto-flower and am wondering what to about nutes. Some places I've read auto-flower strains don't like nutes and not to give… ]]>
