the reason for trying foliar first is that Ca and Mg have a direct relationship in soil and growing media so that too much of one will inhibit uptake of the other, by keeping extra mg out of the pots you avoid that.


The few times ive supplemented mg is by epsom salt solution in the feed aiming to add around 30-50ppm


foliar you should be able to go pretty strong as I doubt you will OD them on Mg but theres no reason to go over a few teaspoons per gallon, one is probably.. you could try searching "epsom foliar ppm" ?

Thanks I'll try that. I did a flush and fed at 4g per gallon and had a growth spurt overnight. Leaves are still variegated.


It could be my nute lock out was from doing 7 grams a gallon. I'll do some spray and will report back.

it could be that 7 grams is driving your pH too far down?
most nutrients ive used do that once i start feeding heavy

Yes, I wondered that too and just as likely it's a build up of nutes. My run off at one time was north of 1400 but under 950 going in.


I also think it's got something to do with my media. I think I'll try a run with coco.


Btw, my experiment with the 1/2 tsp Epsom to 16 oz water foliage spray was a fail. My plants drooped for about day then started growing a little a day after but there has been no change to the variegation in my leaves.


My plants still grow and bloom and chop and smoke just fine and I have a satisfactory amount of harvest for me.



I just know something is not optimal because my leaves are not solid green run after run.


I've been running like this for a few years and haven't been able to find all the problems. There was more than one but the thing I haven't adjust is the media.


At least I know 4-5 grams per gallon of Maxigrow or Maxibloom seem to be the sweet spot. If I feed those strengths at PH 6 and still have problems it's not food.

I like to feed as low as possible and have found that plants do best if they are getting what they need and not much more, the biggest thing I look for if my plants arent doing well is the environment ... temps, air exchange, etc.


good luck!

It should be pinned. Massive thread. I like kiss, although I have been using maxigro for veg. It's not working great so maybe it's time to go back to KISS...

Absolutely.
Between running MaxiBloom as the main feed and using screw-in LEDs, it's possible to grow fantastic flowers for very little cost.
