Scroby started grow question 3 years ago
Hey there, wondering if anyone can help me out with a bit of knowledge on the cyco line with auto flowers, should I be changing anything like implementing both grow a+b and bloom a+b?
Any help to point me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated!

@Scroby hi mate I use the cyco stuff from time to time I would use the grow A+B until the flowering stretch is over then change over to the bloom nutes. Cyco also make a great rhyzo fuel in their platinum lines Best of luck

From all the knowledge I've gained using different types of nutrients I'd highly recommend you go with an A/B or Part 1/2 solution like advance nutrients which will automatically adjust your PH. The rest is history and you'll save yourself so much unnecessary work and all you'll have to focus on is to give them slightly lower dosage than they recommend until you feel comfortable pushing your plants a little more.

Hi @Scroby! I would stick to the official feeding schedule, but start with half of the recommended doses, and increase step by step only if the plants are healhty and reacting positively to the feedings. Most of the fertilizers brands have heavy feeding plans and do not consider autoflowering strains. Our autos are sensitive to pretty much everything, so keep in mind that less is more. It's way easier to fix a slight deficiency than to recover from a slight toxicity. Also, try to stick to the 5.5-5.8 pH range, in coco I've had better results around 5.8 for the whole run, anything above will slow down nutrient intakes. Hope this will help, let us know how this goes, and happy growing! :facepunch:

Here is a copy of the feed schedule. http://cycoflower.com/can/cyco-platinum-series-feed-charts-nutrient-calculators/

. you could actually talk to the support line there too for in-depth detailed questions about their nutrients. Normally you should start at 30-40% of recommended nutrient dosage and work your way up form there. Each strain and plant will have different feed needs so you have to adjust your feed acording to how your plant reacts. If you use grow XL be very careful for a large stretch and double check your PH cause it was cause a large drop.
