Full strength compost you generally start around day 25-30 if all is growing well and the plants have started to use the nutrients. 

 

Your plant will tell you when it wants feeding, usually around day 28 you will start to see your very first leaves start to lose a bit of the vibrant colour. 

This is your plant telling you it wants food. 

 

Start out at 1/4 dose and work up.

 

There are a lot of factors so whatever we say will only be the roughest of ideas. 

 

I've never used pm compost, perhaps someone who has used your specific compost could chime in as to when they started but like I say, generally once they have rooted this pots+ 1 week or so for the plant to use the nutrients up

Some good tips @blackpoolbouncer thought I’d share my recently set up Tropf Blumats in coco under LEDs. Already love them and such a top feeling not spending hours a week hand-watering and especially blissful when it’s currently a little tricky to get to my grow space.  Good to see them being used in other media successfully too, no-till is tempting me away from coco, love the idea of a living soil!  Anyway, the only problem I have is sediment settling on the bottom of the tank despite a 1000l pump and the blue attachment called a Bubblegen raging away on the bottom of my 65l res. I think it’s mostly the humates in the Growers Ark root tonic so I just give it a quick stir with a stick once a day.

Before nutes were added:

Reservoir sat about 1m above surface of the pots on an extra strong workmate and a couple of beer crates.  Should safely hold a 240l reservoir for when I need to go away for a week or more...the res and drippers are all sat in Garland trays that can take 100l...just in case lol
