at this stage in veg the name of the game is the underground action. You want a sturdy and resilient root system so the plant can beast out during flower. So two things are a must : 1. root boosters like kelp extract - just careful with the PH because it can raise your PH and 2. "CalMag" , but use it as a spray (spray until dripping wet) two or three times a week. Optional are veg nutes with NPK 10/2/2 some ratio like that... and the magic juice that no one tells you about : the enzymes or better yet the amino acids... they help the plant develop by transforming the nutrients in the soil into nitrates - because without that transformation actually plants cant use nutrients ! hope this helps ! :rocket:

Hey there deegee, so im not sure what soil you use but most of the time it has some level of food to it...but it will run out after a few weeks. Whether you go with cannabis friendly nutes or regular home/garden store supplies you'll want some form of "grow" or all purpose plant food...something with good N levels and some P/K. If you can get ahold of a micronutrient that would be very advisable soon as you're using distilled water which won't usually have as many trace elements as a tap water would...copper, zinc, etc etc etc. Many people make use of sea products like kelp/seaweed extract also. And of coarse any root zone will make great use of mycorrhizal fungi product...make sure it specifies endo-mycorrhizal though as i believe that one is key to cannabis, and then feeding your roots help too like with the molasses or kelp as others mentioned.
Happy new year and happy growing. :v:

Hi, if your plant looks healthy i dont see a need to feed her at all. she sits in a big container, and the soil feeds her very well. You can give her Aloe to develop nice roots, and some molasses to feed the microbacterias in the soil. no big need to feed anything else. Icut 1 or 2 aloeleaves put them int 1-2 l water and a dd1 taspoon of sugarcane/ sugarbeetsirup / blackstrapmolasses. then blend evrything and give it ( filtered) to your lady

Right now a root booster and start a light feed stay at around 300-400 ppms i use distilled water so its at 0 i would get a fox farm feed going on i would go Roots at 1.5 a gallon and your veg nutes at 1/4 are 1/2 and feed one a day:+1::+1:

Hi @DeeGee757! Well, it's a very good strategy since it's easier to fix a deficiency than to recover from a toxicity/nutrient-burn. That being said, you will need to be very careful about her first deficiency symptoms if you don't want to slow her down and want get the maximum yield. I bet she will start showing a slight yellowing discoloration and/or some yellowing between the veins, in the 1st scenario add some Nitrogen and in the 2nd scenario add some Cal-Mag to your solution. This should happen in the upcoming weeks. And she will definitely need some P+K boosters during the flowering stage. Hope this makes sense, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:

At this point, nothing. Let it feed from the soil, the 5 gallons will last several more weeks. Only start feeding once you notice the first signs of deficiency. Just as an example, 3 gallons last me 7 or 8 weeks before needing feeding.
