Plagron Batmix help needed

18 posts in this topic

Never used this stuff before but couldnt get my usual so thought i would give it a go.

Potted on into this stuff from my 7" pots into my final 12" pots 2 weeks ago.

At the time of potting on my plants were showing signs of yellowing but seeing as the Batmix states not to feed for 6 weeks i presumed the nutes in it would soon bring some colour back.

Growth has been average but the colour hasnt  returned to my plants.

Temps in room are all good and lights are hung at safe distance from canopy.

Looks to me like they all need a shot of nitrogen,i know the batmix is low in this and could maybe be the issue.

My dilems is would adding some vegging feed into the batmix at this stage cause over feed considering they state theres feed for 6 weeks in the soil. Any suggestions would be gratefully received. Thanks

Hi Mate i tried gurnokalong batmix on my last grow and also had a lot of yellowing because i was scared to overfeed them as it states the soil has enough food in it already. Another marketing trick to catch a stoner out! Once i started feeding them with my regular nutes i got them back to lush green again! I must say it took me a while to get them up to speed. I have now gone back to the biobizz light mix which puts you more in control of your whole grow, cant seem to beat it.

Ignore the 7 weeks start feeding whenever the plants tell you to. 2 weeks is about right. I used to use plagron went to house and garden batmix as it’s cheaper, treat it the same as any fortified soil mix.

Yeah I recently tried Plagron Batmix for a change, never again!! Had loads of yellowing and burned leaves, stems were very red, yield was piss poor, and to top it off got fungus gnats too :( worst grow I've done in ages.

 

+1 for Biobizz Light Mix, never changing soil again!

I always done alright with it and gone though dozens and dozens of bags with no pests, sounds like you overfed.. it’s a hot soil it’s easy to mess up.

I was barely feeding anything tbh mate...I think it might be strain dependant as I also had similar problems with Biobizz All Mix and this same strain.

Yup, I really regret trying it....I've seen it recommended on here loads of times, so pretty gutted that I had a bad experience with....maybe Plagron had a dodgy batch or something? :unsure:

I had a few bags with big lumps of wood now I think about it, I think that’s why I changed to the H&G batmix aswel as the price - was good few years ago, the fungus nats are more likely to come from the soil being stored badly by the growshop. It’s not that hard to get the feed right, should be feeding something like 2ml bloom and 1ml grow/fishmix every watering after about 2 weeks, then adjust up or down if they look hungry or over fed, the bat guano is supposed to enhance the flavour of the buds not replace the feed really.

My plants hadnt received any feed prior to putting em in this stuff.

My usual regime really dosent require me to feed because the compost has just enough guts to it to see em through the 7 " pot stage. 

Usually get em in 12 " then 2 weeks after start  bloom feeding.

Mad as it might seem i use levingtons multi with added john inns and get great results.

Big yields and healthy plants.

Crazy how a change from your usual way can kick ya in the balls.

Pissed right off at the mo,when ya know usual compost its easier to put things right without the doubt of making things worse.

So would you suggest me to feed em?if they looked like this in levingtons i wouldnt hesitate.

Yes mate feed them if they look hungry, I normally start with a light feed and build up to ot1s feed schedule.
