Hey there @Trying_in_Thailand! To put it simply, the low levels of light can not be countered by better nutrients. Goliath nutrients like 'Mothers Milk' can be used to boost the plants resistances to its environment however not boost the effects of sunlight on them. Nutrients are only used by the plant when the plant wants them and the plant will not want to use as much nutrients without as much light. Its that simple. The best thing you can do is just to not overfeed and overwater, then the plant will be just fine! No worries about the light you cant change the sun! :sunglasses:

Hey thai...i dont think the type of nutrient matters at this moment, and probably less is more when they're so young. If you want to add anything to give them strength id aim towards kelp/seaweed product, mycorrhizal fungi, or maybe some sort of humic/fulvic acids...possibly a potassium silicate product(which helps build up immunity and strong stalks and also has a rep of fighting powdery mildew etc(its humid in thailand yes?).
I heard a great saying and it probably applies to a lot of us.... Don't be a MORON as in don't keep putting More-on. Happy growing, i wish is was summer and sunny here :v:oh also its an autoflower....so definitely less is more.

Hello bro ! Sorry but the reality is that NO feeding can help a plant over a Low light setting because the more nutrients you bring and the more light the plant will need to use them. The best exemple is the GHE Lucas formula , Lucas created a schedule for a normal light setting and in case of low light wattage he stated that that chart should be devided by 2. The light plays a big part in nutrients absurbtion , the plant will not be able to use the extra nutrients without extra light. I hope it will help you :grin::raised_hands:

Hi @Trying_in_Thailand! Plants are just like us, they need sun + water + nutrients, each being mandatory and irreplaceable. A lack of light can be solved with ... more light. And it's all connected: a plant which doesn't get enough light won't be able to manage nutrients intakes, and a plant getting a lot of light will consume more nutrients to stay healthy. Hope this makes sense. Happy growing! :facepunch:

hello from chong nonsi my thai brother ! plants only need two things water and light, that's the only nutrients you need. Think of nutrients like a target with a bulls eye you dont want to over do it or under do it, you cant really give more juice to get better results, you want to give just enough to get by. If you want to find some perfect nutrient line that works really well, i can confirm that this thai company is pure genius http://finedaysplants.com , get the full line up, cut the feeding by 50% you'll get great results. To get back to the light 11hrs is fine, especially with this heat these days. with autos many people try for 18hrs indoors because they can, and it accelerates the flower time. You can expect your 2 month auto to go to 3 months +/- one week. So to answer your question , no you can t compensate light with nutrients, even expensive ones. And be very careful giving any nutrients at all to a seedling. Best to simply spray something like Zweed from Fine Days once a day for the first two weeks. Hope this helps ! :rocket:
