Hey there, I'd say always measure your nutes, and start at a low strength and watch for changes, then increase as necessary. If you can master doing the ph and ppm that's always good, as often many problems come down to roots/salt buildup and lack of being able to take in the necessary nutes. Also understand flushing and that occasionally plants will require that even without it being the finale. Clean your reservoir and other equipment.

Number 1 you dont need everything i see u feeding her waste of money IMO #2 you do not need a whole lot of nutes to begin with until flower its your grow homie dont get me wrong but right now you just need a couple things #1 a root booster#2 calmag #3 Big bloom #4 slica you can run this mix from 700-1000 right now with a ph 5.6 - 6.1 with a good heart i didnt use no veg nutes on my grows im doing now in veg thats where people burn 99% of there plants and the timing of when to propely start everyone has different methods and ideas on wats the best way to go about it this way worked out for me it might work out for u good luck:v::v::beers::beers:

Hi there ! You have to keep in mind that, with cannabis, '' lower is always better'', most of nutrients have a dose written on their package, cut in half those dose, give nutrients only every two watering and hive only water with ph adjusted at 5,5 for veg, 6 for flowering, this will avoid most of your ptoblems of nuts... Keep in mind that in nature, your plants don't need any nutrients, and she's able to grow, thatmeans she do not need so much... Hope i helped you !

I would suggest using a ppm/ec meter to measure runoff. If you know how to read the numbers then youll know if shes having too much nutrients, not enough, and eating the right amount.

Hello! It's much easier to fix a deficiency than a burn, so start low & go slow when applying nutes. Just as (new) growers often overwater their plants out of a desire to maximize their potential, it's easy to over-feed for the same reasons. Dose & frequency are the two things to watch. If the nutrient comes with instructions for use, start with 1/4th the dose they recommend. If the plant responds well after 2 or 3 days, bump it up to 1/2 the recommended dose the next time and so on. Frequency of feedings should also be modest until you know how the plant responds, especially in veg when the plant's general nutrient needs will be less. Flowering is when they get truly "hungry".

The whole effect of the burning you will see days after.
never feed your plant if the soil is dry
start with 1/3 - 1/2 of the recommend dosage, and wait what happens.
dont feed if they dont show any defiencies
Nutients: less is more
If you give them to much nutrients they will die in a few days. if you give them less they live and show you by leavecolour etc. what they need. Dont be afraid not to feed.
If the nutrient burn gets weaker flush the plant or transplant her or both
Happy growing
