Advice needed for nutrients

Hello fellas,

I just switched to Advanced Nutrients products and wondering if someone can share your feeding schedule? It’s only week 1 of veg and I’m using Sensi Grow A+B , Voodo Juice and B-52 only. I use LED’s and soil. Any advises for adding something more?

Thanks in advance!

I have to say first that I’m a noob at this. But it’s my first grow with an all A.N. line-up and I followed their nutrient calculator. For me it seems to work great. It made a huge difference considering my set-up.

It’s my first grow as well with AN. And I’m using this schedule at this moment, but decided to ask community what they think about it and what better solution they can give. This is a schedule that I use, you just select solution you use and they make you a schedule:

Thanks for a message! :wink:

I know the next step for us will be to get a PPM and EC reader and dabble in the dark arts of precise run-off checking and all that magical stuff that is still a mystery to me…:crazy_face:

Checking your ppm runoff is easier then giving your plants food. Dont make it sound so difficult lol

I’m using this Ph, EC meter:

It works perfectly, of course the price is big, but I think is invest in a long term :slight_smile:

I put 0.4 EC and 5.8-5.9 PH in week 1.

I did not checked my run off yet but I definitely do later this week

I’ve been using nutrients from general hydroponics… Use Bio-thrive grow during veg and Bio-thrive bloom when starting to flower… My buds are getting there and I’ve started feeding them Bio-bud bloom booster for the last few days… First time using these nutes… Anyone else try general hydroponics products? I’ve been seeing great results so far haven’t tried advanced nutrients before… How are the results compared to other brands you’ve tried?

I just started using AN, so I still can’t compare, but I will share my results later on

Bottled, premixed nutrients for some reason just seem to attract new growers. I started with GH nutes but has since switched to a dry/granular mix. With the dry nutrients, I can single out the nutrients to help correct deficiencies.

For instance, say you have a plant that really loves the nitrogen. Like more so then any other plants your growing. With those premixed ratios you aren’t able to give the plant just nitrogen. You would have to also give extra phosphorus or potassium since the mixture is already made, thus creating different problems.

With my Jack’s nutrients, I can single out individual elements and cater better to a plants needs. Completely customizable to any type of plant.

And the best part…I use the same mixture from seed to harvest.

I use the AN line up with great results. With that being said I did it knowing that it was to get my “feet wet” and understand the nutritional requirements of the plants. Highly recommend Great White mycorrhizal supplement as well. Has endo and ecto mycorrhizae as well as beneficial bacterial culture. When you’re flowering just push your plants until you start to see any tip burn and then back off and you should be good. Make sure to flush well. I’d use like half the recommended dose when the plants are smaller and gradually increase as the size of the plant does. Use your best judgement. I started off using too much now I’m guilty of using too little lol. Find a happy medium and enjoy the free flowers!

That’s what I considering to do. Follow the plan I found on their website and flush once a week. I might bump to nutrient burn that’s why decided to wash them once a week.

Hey @john7 Check out this topic “Advanced Nutrient Line Up.” Along with the great info in this thread, our members have provided some very informative content along with an A.N. AMA link that was hosted by them not too long ago.

Happy chatting and growing!

I don’t mind the bio line gh. Check out this study “a top nutrient study” it’s on 420 magazine site. I have found it to be very accurate and much to learn. I use the earth juice original line but like bio canna as well.if u want Niger yeilds of amazing looking buds a.n. is great but pricy as hell.so is bio canna. That bio boost is super pricy!!I use greenfuse bloom booster instead with identical results at a small fraction of the cost.earth juice is super cheap and the best bottled nutes available imho I have ran almost every line that has stood the test of time and I find e.j. has best flavor and potency .and great yeilds I pull 200 g off a runt and 500-600 of a monster (this crop) I have a true monster coming up she’s almost dry now I can’t wait to check the weight haha

Are you using anything for a P K boost? I use mono potassium phosphate. I’m also supplementing with NPK Industries RAW additives to get my aminos, kelp, fulvic, etc.

Reminds me of the night me and my wife were having a nice grouper for dinner and I mentioned how was nice that I was able to catch my own fish. My wife didn’t say anything for about two or three minutes, then she left the table and came back with a calculator, and about a minute later said, "factoring in the cost of the boat, other assorted fishing equipment, time, fuel, and all the other assorted associated costs this grouper at cost to date is around $1400 a pound. LOL. Ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.
