This will most likely be the longest part of this whole thread for there are many nutrients to choose from.

Alright, now we are getting somewhere.. WE got the seedling past 2 weeks and our lighting picked out and what period we are going to choose, now we need to pick out what nutrients we are going to use! There are a number of nutrients on the market from ‘Miracle Grow’ to ‘Pure Blend’ products to ‘Fish Emulsion’ and ‘Guanos’. Nitrogen is one of the biggest nutrient your plant will take for veg growth! So you want to make sure you supply your plant with good amount of Nitrogen. And then give a normal amount of P and K

Here is a list of what you have to choose from for nutrients for Vegetative growth. At the bottom will be a list of ‘Micro Nutes’ also known as secondary nutrients like Zinc, Magnesium and Potassium.

First if you want to go Chemical feeding here is a list of what you have to choose from and what is best and what strength. FOR ALL CHEMICAL USAGE NEVER USE WHAT THE BOX RECOMMENDS AS THE CANNABIS PLANT BURNS VERY EASILY..PROCEED USING THESE WITH CAUTION AND USING NO MORE THEN ½ STRENGTH OF WHAT IT SAYS ON BOX!
