Does anyone stay with Veg. Fertilizer for full grow cycle when growing Autos. I switched to bloom Fertilizer as soon as started to switch to flower but my greenery is starting to look a little shabby. Should I stay with bloom fert. and just add some Nitrogen to it Thanks.

Hey there JP, can't say for sure because there's no info on which ferts you're using , but what I can say for sure is that , no, usually with autos I don't use any ferts until flowering , using veg ferts throughout will mess up the NPK ratios in the soil and hinder the flowering because of too much N. However with some if not most bloom fertiliser it's ok to mix and match with a 1/4 to 1/2 dose of veg ferts to give it that extra N or "balance" the NPK ratio. What you don't want to do is end up with a 6-2-2 ratio when you should be at 2-4-4 npk . Does that make sense ? Hope this helps ! :rocket:

@JP148 Hi mate yes I like to keep adding a the grow nutes at half strength right thru until harvest as your plants
still need nitrogen calcium and magnesium just in loser doses because your bloom nutes are more suited for promoting the flowering sites and flowering bulk Hope this answers the question mate
