Hi @fategrows! In soil I usually feed once a week starting by week 3-4. I trust my soil mix to do its job for the first weeks, then I look at my plant's reaction and I decide of the feeding schedule depending on the plant's health. Remember it's always easier to fix a slight deficiency than to recover from a slight toxicity, so do it step by step and pay attention to the signs of a deficiency. If you feed too often and you never water to the runoff, chances are high for your rootmass to develop salts buildup, and when it happens in late flowering, you're screwed. Regarding nutrients, less is more, unless the plant is asking for it. Hope this makes sense, keep us updated and happy growing! :facepunch:

Twice a week is good. Watch how your plant reacts to the nutrients and they will help determine how often and much you will need to feed her. Remember to start low with nutrients and work your way up as the grow progresses. Good luck and happy growing :+1::muscle::muscle:

Hi! I used to give nutrients every second watering and that was what I was teached. But i read now somewhere that best way to do it is to fertilize every watering so that your plant doesn't have adjust every time for plain water or water mixed with nutrients.
That every second watering worked fine for me so I you wanna be sure try that way. But me myself I'm gonna ease up my nutrient schedule and start giving nutes in every watering.
Happy growing hope this was useful to ya!

Hi there mate heres my 2 cents worth....
During the early stages of flowering your plants are in full stretch mode so they will still need plenty of the grow nutrients. Once the stretch is over you then need to switch to a bloom nutrient.
Your plants will dictate how often they need feeding but twice a week sounds ok for now just remember they still need that nitrogen during the stretch mode.
Hope this has helped mate
