nutrients

by John
(conn.)

Hi, Im new to hydroponics, I bought some nutrient at local supply 10-1-5
the bottle said 4 teasp pr gallon however the store told me to start off with 1 teasp.
per. plants are growing very slow in my opinion, not many roots but the ones I do see are white. What are your thoughts
regards;
john

Answer from Stella/Simon:
Hi John,
It kind of depends on what you are growing, some crops take their time growing, while others take off like weeds.

I think after feeding them the weak solution for a week, you could go up to 2 tsp. for a week and see if that doesn't spur more roots and faster growth. I think eventually you should up it to the recommended dose.

Sorry I can't give you a more definitive answer, but hard to do without knowing what you are growing, what type of system, and what nutrients you are using.

Hope this helps!
