NarwhalUp started grow question 3 years ago
So this is my first grow. I mixed my growing media 2 parts peat moss to 1 part fox farm ocean forest in five gallon pots. I am wanting to grow organic and have an all purpose 4-4-4 fertilizer and my other fertilizer is 2-5-3. My question is when should I start to amend with a top dressing and how much of each fertilizer should I use? Thanks for the help and this platform.

If you have the fox farm id say you can wait at least a few weeks. And with the top dressing, I'd recommend a couple tablespoons spread on top, possibly as the plant get further along you may want to change to 1/3 + cup of dressing and then eventually change to a bloom like top dress the 2-5-3. Id start the 2/5/3 just before your flip to 12/12. And just watch for any deficiences to increase the top dress.
I love the sustainable organic grows, good luck, happy growing. :v:
