As for nutes, I am using Earth Juice 5 part; Grow, Bloom, Catalyst, Meta-K & Microblast. I will be mixing this with my well water that has a 6.5–7.5 pH & 300-400ppm TDS @.7 conversion. After I fill my 5 gallon water jugs, I drop a 2” round air stone in to aerate the water & to remove any gases that their might be, just in case.
Now this is where the benefits are found, look at the numbers below of what I feed to what should have been feed.
My Feedings - Vegetation Mix - Advance Feed
- 30ml - Grow - 4ml
- 15ml - Catalyst - 1.3ml
- 5ml - Meta-K - 1ml
- 5ml - Microblast - 1.3ml
These numbers are pre gallon of water & I feed them this way twice. The Advance Feed is what you find on Earth Juices website for feeding. They tell you that you don’t have to check or adjust the pH of your mix but I checked it out just to see & I had 4.84pH with over 1100ppm. And I feed this to 8 plants in veg that are only 40 days old. Yet I have no burning, curling, wilting or dying happening because of it. I am sold on organics & I feel all new dirt growers should start out this way, so much more forgiving.
