Supersoil getting depleted

I've been using a water only supersoil for a few grows. This time round I had to keep the plants in veg for 3 months and some of them are long-flowering sativas. They are in #5 pots so will likely deplete the soil before they finish. Can anyone recommend something organic that I can use to give the plants a boost in late flower?

Dress with BuffaLoam, bison manure in yes, CO! We also like to use Organic Plant Magic (tea) for early season before we can make teas. Alfalfa meal is another nice organic option.
Good luck!

I don't typically use any bottles, but I do have some around to push the plants to see if I'm really getting the most from them. I generally find that anything extra results in clawing or faint tip burn. However, this basic recipe is a fail safe, that isn't designed to feed the plants everything they need, but rather to supplement a fully amended organic soil.

This is also very helpful with Chem/OG/Diesel hybrids that tend to favor calcium/magnesium uptake at higher rates than typical cannabis hybrids.

Bone meal, bat guano, worm castings and/or fish emulsion in small amounts will help.

It's best to use very little and feed more often than using too much and frying the leaves.

I appreciate the advice. I am limited to #5 pots because I veg them in an attic bedroom and flower them in a shop outside. I couldn't carry 7 gallon pots up the spiral staircase.

I think the indicas and hybrids will be OK but if the sativas do start to fade I would need a quick fix. Scenario - Sativas start to fade 3 or 4 weeks before harvest. I have just one shot really to revitalize the soil, so I'm thinking a bottle. Something like FoxFarm Big Bloom of Roots Organics Extreme Serene. Any thoughts on that?

II think a liquid fertilizer at thus point.
Can't say one brand from the other.
Last I used was FloraNova and that was many, many moons ago.

Everyone's recommending good stuff . If you want a simple bottled one part nutrient I personally use with my depleted super soil I love earth juice bloom.
