View Full Version : Nutrient chart Question

When do i start the week 1 in the feeding schedule? Is it after or the beginning of vegetation? If the answer is after vegetation, how much nutrients should i give it through germination and vegetation? I will love to get the answer for these questions, thanks.

A lot of people will wait a while to give young plants the nutrients, I generally begin following the nutrient chart as soon as the first set of true leaves begins developing. Before that point, I just feed them with a very diluted solution, around 1/4th of the week 1 nutrient guidelines.

From what I've read, you don't start nutrients until after germination, after it starts growing actual leaves, not the initial 2 leaves(can't remember what they are called). But I am a complete noob, I haven't even started gardening yet, I'm just quoting what I have read.

And the first set of leaves (not true leaves) is called the seed leaves or cotyledons.
