I'll try keeping my total PPM's between 850 and 1000 and see how my plants respond.

5 grams at 133ppm is 665 plus my tap of 200 = 865ppm

6 grams at 133ppm is 798 plus tap = 998ppm

I use MB and Floralicious+ together, though I use less than 2ml/gallon of the Floralicious+. Works great.



You feed at 5 grams of MB and add 2 ml Floralicious+ per gallon? I already own some Floralicious+ but never used it.

I have no idea how many grams I use per gallon, it also varies by strain. I do know I usually don't use a full scoop, more like 3/4ths.

Do you use the Floralicious+ every time you water?

I put these rooted clones in 3 gallon hempy buckets and watered them at 900 ppm. They are doing fine now, Thanks!!

No, I only use it during flower and I use it sparingly, because too much adds a Floralicious+ flavor to the end cannabis.

In soil I would recommend using it the first couple waterings of flower. With hydro I only add it to the reservoir when it's first mixed for the flowering run. I only top off my res the entire flowering run without dumping, so it gradually gets weaker as time goes on.

So that I am perfectly clear, this 750ppm you refer to includes my tap water or no?


My tap water is 200ppm, so should my PPM meter read 750 or 950ppm max?

I'm not sure what he means but for what it's worth I feed 800ppm / 1.6EC from fresh clones all the way through flower (Jack's Hydro + Jack's Calnit). That includes my tap water, which is 200ppm / 0.4EC.

Ok, first point of confusion is probably the 750ppm being a 500 conversion reading. Pens using 700 conversion will read higher than 750, so if anyone would care to throw this out there I'd appreciate it.

As for total ppm with tap water, in 15+ years of hydro I really have zero experience with tap water which would apply here. I've literally used r/o all this time, and it's been rock solid predictable in all the states/areas I've lived. I'm usually within 30ppm and right on with pH, just eyeballing the MaxiBloom and pH up. lol

I couldn't even begin to guess what's in your tap water, so any advice I give would be pretty useless.

I found this on another website and thought I would pass it on.


If I were to run MaxiBloom alone I would recommend at 5grams per gallon which yields:



N 66ppm
P 86ppm
K 154ppm

But, this is how I would use the 2 Maxi products together


Veg established plants maxi grow 4.5 grams per gallon run up to week 2 of 12/12

N120ppm
P26ppm
K 148ppm

then mix

2.5 grams maxi grow and 2.5 grams maxi bloom run from week 2 of 12/12 to week 6 or 7 of 12/12 (you could run this formula to the end)

N100ppm
P60ppm
K160ppm

then mix (optional)
4 to 5 grams maxi bloom
run week 6 or 7 thru finish

N 66ppm
P 86ppm
K 154ppm

N goes down.... P goes up..... K stays the same +/-
