Ay, y’all! It’s ya boy Dan here, and today we talking about one of the most common ways to feed yo’ indoor cannabis plants: liquid nutrients. Now, liquid nutrients be easy to use and have some serious results for yo’ cannabis crop. But listen up, they ain’t no joke and can be disastrous if you don’t know how to use them. So, if you want to take yo’ weed to the next level and get those diamond-encrusted buds full of terpenes and cannabinoids, check out this guide on how to use liquid nutrients for cannabis plants!
Now, if you already know about cannabis fertilizer, skip ahead. But if you new to this game, head over to our Grow Bible under Step 2 – Nutrients. To understand liquid nutrients and why they so good for yo’ plants, we gotta talk about natural nutrient cycles.
In the natural world, marijuana plants rely on the nitrogen cycle to get one of their main food sources – nitrogen. But bottled fertilizers skip all that and give yo’ plants everything they need without waiting for natural processes. That’s why liquid nutrients are so advantageoussssss for yo’ cannabis plants – they allow for fast uptake of nutrients, increase yield, promote growth, reduce flowering time, and make yo’ plants more resistant to pests and diseases.
But hold up! You can’t just go pouring that liquid fertilizer all over yo’ plants without knowing what you doing! There are some key things you need to consider before using bottled nutrients on yo’ marijuana plants.
Firstly, how much liquid fertilizer do yo’ plants need? Well, it depends on the strain. Some strains like a lot of nutrients while others don’t. Luckily, all liquid fertilizers have recommended doses on the label. Start with half the recommended dose and see how yo’ plants react. If they happy, keep going. If they ain’t happy, adjust the dose accordingly.
Secondly, how often should you be giving yo’ plants liquid fertilizer? If you growing hydroponically, you gotta feed yo’ plants every day. But if you using bottled nutrients as a supplement to organic soil, once or twice a week is enough.
Lastly, do you have the right hardware? To use liquid fertilizer, you need a pH and nutrient meter. If you don’t use these, yo’ plants ain’t gonna make it. Trust me on this one.
Now, let’s talk about how to use liquid nutrients in five easy steps!
Step 1: Calibrate yo’ pH and nutrient meter.
Step 2: Read the feeding schedule on the liquid fertilizer bottle.
Step 3: Measure out yo’ water.
Step 4: Add the liquid fertilizer to the water.
Step 5: Mix it all together and adjust the pH and PPM levels as needed.
And that’s it! Feed yo’ plants that well-balanced diet and watch them grow into some top-shelf buds. If you wanna learn more about bloom boosters and alternative feeding methods, stay tuned for my upcoming guides!
Until next time, peace out!
