Should I change from veg to bloom food?

21 posts in this topic

My "Fast and Vast" autos seem to have spurted in last few days and now have pistols starting to appear. The top left one is 28 days in and the other two are 26 days. Would I be to early to change to bloom feed since they are advertised as done in 8 weeks.

 

Many Thanka

I would add in 1-2ml/l at this stage alongside the Grow or fishmix ur using for veg as they will need N right up to the flush :bong:

Too many questions! 

Is that a hydro bubbler system? 

Does your bloom feed contain much nitrogen?

Bubbler buckets, one airpump feeding all three, nice little setup and looking at the plants I reckon that's spot on........:yep:

So answer the question wise old goat

@stu914 I'd suppose it depends on what hydro nute's the ops on?

'bout time someone realised.........:wassnnme:  :rofl:

 

I guess it does, I use grow for the first week after flip, then blend grow and bloom 50/50 until end of stretch, then full bloom 'til flush......

 

There's a way to go in the above pictures, they aren't gonna finish in another four weeks that's for sure, optimistic breeders again,

 

I would be tempted to put them in full bloom to try and trigger the flowering process......:yep:

Two bubblers and one drip ring.

Grow NPK is 6.3, 2.3, 6.

Bloom NPK is 4.3, 3.5, 6.

Thank you. I find bubbler buckets so easy to use. Got so fed up with the noise of cheaper aquarium pumps that I invested in a really solid silent pump that really pumps it out.

Being autos, their is no flip to 12/2 and they are and will stay on 18/6. The stretch is now into its 4th or 5th day and as pic below shows, well into starting the flower stage. I reckon at the rate they are growing now, 8 weeks or maybe 9 does look possible.

Be interesting to see, I did a supposed nine week auto which ended up at 102 days, and it was rubbish.........:rofl:

Epsom foliar feed followed by a pure water drench. Then carry on regardless.

Good solid Epsom foliar feed.  

I wouldn't worry about humidity or bud rot using foliar feed at this stage or even later......

After checking the plants this morning, due to their propensity of pistols I decided  to change all 3 plants over to bloom. Their water intake has greatly increased as has the smell which is taken care of with charcoal filters. I have also started a dehumidifier running in the room that houses the grow tent.

 

Thanks to everyone for their advice. I will post some more pics in next couple of days to check progress..

Forget 8 weeks mate. Maybe 8 weeks from once they start flowering :smokin:

 

 

It is rare that bloom nutes contain enough nitrogen for the bloom period. This is why people advised you to add bloom alongside the grow.

Can I add a suggestion?

 

I would raise the air pump  off the ground. 

It could back syphon and fuck your pump in the blink of an eye.

 

Ive had it happen before, and they are not cheap to replace, plus your plants wont last more than 48hrs without oxygenated water.

They look good tho, the plants that is.
