I've been using Jack's Bloom Booster 10-30-20 as a stand alone one part, in veg right thru till flush in bloom for a couple years now with excellent results. 1/4 teaspoon per gallon when using Happy Frog soil and 1/2 teaspoon per gallon with Pro Mix BX.

Do you add calcium / magnesium since 10-30-20 has low mag and no Ca whatsoever?
If so, how do you add Calcium without messing up the Nitrogen?
Thanks!

I buy the 1Kilo bags. Just bought a new one less than a month ago and I have a question.

When I scoop up a small scoop of MaxiBloom, how many tiny blue chunks of ground up miracle grow should I include in a 1/4 scoop? My goal is to keep a consistent balance of nutrients, you know?

I'm damn sure it's ground up Miracle-Grow, Maxi never had blue bits in it before.

I refuse to use the Blue chunks in my rez, I think it's Oxi-Clean...so I save all the Blue Chunks in a separate container, and after 2 years or so I have enough to wash my concrete porch

Too cheap and easy to not try at least once!

Have read this whole thread, twice.
Once a few years ago, and recommended this method to a friend growing outdoors, he had great success.
Have sort of always tried to follow the lucas formula in one way or another through my years of hydro, FNB, 8/16, sometimes just as a base, with some other GH boosters, sometimes just strict lucas.

Currently i have a new garden ( check my gallery or my thread) running KISS maxibloom. I go into more detail there, but figured i would share some pics of my plants, and hopefully remember to come back and update with bud shots as they develop.

Remember folks KISS maxibloom is 7g/gal of water. I use about 1/2 tsp/gal of protek mixed in first, then just dump the weighed out amount of dry maxi into my res. no hot water shaking, this is 20-40gal at a time, it mixes fine. Works out to about 1.7ec for me.
Since im running OG Kush, im trying to get the most out of her, and shes a mag hungry beast, so i give a little bit extra epsom salts, and 2-3ml/gal of liquid kool bloom in flower at the moment which works out to 2.0-2.1 ec for me. Good clean hetch hetchy tap water.

my grow if you are interested: https://www.icmag.com/ic/showthread.php?t=352817

Thanks for all the help in this thread... Remember keep it simple stoner, this feed technique is supposed to take the guess work out of nutes, give you a very well rounded, cost effective base to start out with if you want to run it strict, or tinker a bit, and really take the question of nutes out of the equation while you play with other more important elements in the room, such as light height/intensity, grow room temp/humidity/vpd, and c02 levels.

Plants... newest shots are 14-15 days of flower.


This is about the point i started feeding full strength, and most mag def signs went away, plants got healthier and happier. Dont be afraid to hit 7g/gal once plants are rooted, they will eat it up!


day 1 flower


day 8 flower


day 14



will update later when i have some more mature buds to show off!

Nice looking flowers, though personally they look overfed. You can run significantly less nutrient strength, when you make sure the plant has a full and healthy pH swing in the root zone.


The swing in the root zone from 5.4'ish to 6.0'ish allows all elements to be easily absorbed as their 'range' goes by in pH. The more balanced the nutrient profile you're using, the less overfeeding of individual or multiple elements happens, the less nutrient you need to spend for, and a side result is your quality goes up significantly.

You have mentioned this overfert before... what exactly are you seeing?
Too green? Tip burn? Specifics other than the color the pics came out at off of my phone?
Curious to have you elaborate.
KISS is 7g/gal can’t really mess that up lol

I'm seeing VERY dark leaves, which has never (in my experience) produced quality cannabis. 7g/gallon is actually very strong for most strains of cannabis.



Cannabis is excellent at using enough nutrients to destroy quality, while still growing and looking 'ok.'


Edit: Here's a shot of the color I'm talking about. This is around 740ppm, since I shoot for 750ppm max for almost all strains.
