Ionic Soil Nutrients

For anyone who uses Ionic Soil nutrients,  can you please help me in understanding the feed chart?  This is to grow autos.

 

The chart says to feed 7ml perL throughout the grow phase, I expect less for an auto, but this doesn't seem right.  Every other nutrient brand shows the concentrations gradually increasing as the plant grows,  which makes perfect sense to me.  Unless these nutes work differently. 

 

Am I missing something?

The quicker you get through it, the sooner you buy a new bottle.

 

If you get an e.c. meter you can start ignoring the ml/L from the bottle.  You probably won't go much over 1.4 with an auto in flower. Start at about 0.8 and increase slowly as it grows.

Cheers bud. I've got an essentials EC pen so could finally make use of it.

I've not grown autos but I've used gallons of ionic soil, it's weak as fuck in real terms , growth technology prefer to call it "forgiving" which is reasonably apt I guess.

Ive used the soil grow in concentrations up to 11ml per litre in the past if plants have needed it so 7ml doesn't sound that bad really.

Sounds like a lot of guess work TBH.  Think I'll stick to a brand with a better thought out chart.

they are al the same. take all of the charts and throw them in the nearest bin, they are all a load of ballocks.

like said earlier, get your ec pen out and start at 0.8 and work your way up to 1.4/1.6 max, in say weeks 4-7, then taper it down slowly towards the end.

 

ionic nutes are great, ime, ive used them for years.

I was planning to use Tropic Batmix so I guess go a little easier on the bloom? I do like the price of these nutes, local shop sells them at £7.50 a bottle.  Would you recommend any of their other products to use alongside grow and bloom?

OK, cheers bud, sounds like a great and cost effective plan then.  £15 for a grow...... Ace
