Anyone have a feeding schedule for Autoflowers in Fox Farm soil? I know im not suppose to feed them for the first dew weeks till they use up the nutrients already in the soil. I have General Hydroponics 3 part. A bottle of Cal-Mag and great white mycorrhizae. Thanks for looking.

This is an old question. Start 1/4 strength nutes week 4 when using foxfarm happy frog soil if its ocean forrest 1/4 strength week 5or 6 you need to only give her what she needs. You can work your way slowly increasing your nutes each week. Autos rarely need more than 1/2 strength nutes in mid bloom. Since this is now week 8 you need to adjust your leds to have a greater red spectrum which wil be ideal for bloom. Also you need to use nute with more phophorus and potassium for bud building. Hope this helps.

Hey man I personally use fox farm ocean forest soil and yes the soil is good for about the first month of growing in it but after I feed 1/2 strength fox farm trio. Either way I would say that feeding schedules are not needed unless you got a big garden. I say learn as many deficiencies and excessive nutrient issues so you can tend to each plant to their needs (more or less nutes). Good luck man they look good.

Hi @Rad406ci! Warning: FoxFarm soil is known to be very hot, I've seen a lot of growers burning their plants with it and I see you're also experimenting a slight Nitrogen toxicity. I won't use any nutrients unless the plants are asking for it, you will easily notice and fix a CalMag deficiency or a Nitrogen deficiency, whereas it can be very difficult to get rid of a toxicity once it has happen. With autoflowers, less is more, simple is better. Hope this will help, let me know in the comments section if you need any further information. Happy growing! :facepunch:

Start off by 1/2 strength of the manufacturer recommendation. And only go up if the plant needs it. And the gh trio will get great results. There is a feed chart at for gh trio that will get a great harvest. Good luck

Screw the schedules ! Use an EC meter and make your own schedule, tweak the classic nutrients schedule to the maximum. Just stay between 1.6 and 2 during late flowering.

Brotha, you can feed with every other watering and start at about 1/4 recommended strength. Simple as that.

I haven't had to use any liquid nutrients in my fox farm soil. I use some dry amendments to top dress just prior to flower. Then just RO water with a bit of calmag in it. You may need to move your lights closer or use more powerful lights. I'm still fairly new to this but I noticed a huge difference when I upgraded my light.

I just got nutrients and started feeding my plant in week 2 I’ve seen what comes out of plants when you start early. I use fox farm as well if I just feed all probably do water/calmag nextime then feed again if I see my run off is getting super dirty all just flush with water. It’s honestly what you want to do there is no such thing as a feeding routine that’s just a ploy for you to use more nutrients

calmag every week, NPK and Myco every ten days - simple ! just dont over do it, and dont over think it, if you see the plant getting burnt scale it back. I count my day one as the day i activate my seeds in water before i even put them in root cubes, that's just because it's more useful to me. You can start whenever is most useful for you, many folks (including breeders!) probably dont start counting until after the seedling stage. There's no fixed rule : a diary is a tool, use yours however you like ! Hope this helps ! :rocket:
