Favorite 'SOIL' based nutrients

What are your favorite 'SOIL' based reliable go to nutrients that you swear by?

 

I'm currently using the BioBizz range with Maxicrop Original Seaweed, but with BioBizz its seemed easy to overfeed, so you have to keep them lite but i'm still not convinced by BioBizz. I've also tried DutchPro but didn't get on with these at all.

 

So i'm looking for an alternative nutrient regime to feed the Auto OG KUSH strain i've just acquired. Looking possibly into the Fox Farm, Plant Magic - Oldtimer Organic Grow Bloom, or Advanced Nutrients range but still undecided.

I'm interested to know what the seasoned farmers on here use to feed their autoflowers with successful results.

Do you mean compost? If not you should be amending the outdoor soil with manure/compost/chicken pellets and nature will do the rest

 

If you mean compost indoors, Biobizz is the dogs imho, and all nutes will overfert if you don`t use them properly

Am using biobizz light mix for seedlings and vegging, a small handful of ecothrive charge, then home and garden bat mix special for flowering.

 

They have had 4 doses of biobizz fish mix and the same of biobizz bloom so far.

 

Six weeks into flower : large.5b5d65eb84772_tallestoldtimes.JPG

Nice nug. I like the sound of the Bat Mix and ecothrive, do you transplant from lite mix into the bat mix as the plant comes into flower?

Once sexed and I know what is female, then I put them in the final pots.  Yea just straight over from light mix to batmix, no problems so far.

Before mate, about two weeks before final pots at least, I would be using full strength medium from the start and still pot up 3-4 times before flower

 

e2a,  would also be feeding after the first 4-5 days after each pot up, if not before

@ratdog Yea mine went into the final pots and then had a while in veg before going into 12/12 as I wanted something closer to a tree than a plant.  I daresay more nutes can be added, I'm just tightfisted :D

I've got 2 big bags of biobizz all mix and lite... do you think i could mix it up with some bat mix to add that bit of guano nutrition without compromising the composition of the substrate or risk over feeding?

Personally I would just buy a bag of H&G batmix.  Use each soil type for its defined purpose.  Mixing my own recipes is a road I no longer can be bothered to travel, so much easier with ready made organic soil.
