Liquid Plant Food?
    #4496346 - 08/04/05 08:41 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Would using Miracle Gro, or any liquid plant food, to add nutrients to the soil cause any damage? It seems like it would help, especially on the second flush. I saw someone say that they keep growing till the nutrients are used up, and adding more thru food would seem to prolong that.

Nutrients come from the substrate, not the casing layer. I wouldn't suggest adding something like that at all, unless you want to roast your casing.

I was actually wondering about this, myself.

Good thing someone already asked for me :smile:.

I've done it. although I was subsequently told I shouldn't. I put just afew drops in my sprayer and noticed my second and third flushes(from a kit, not a casing of my own) were HUGE. I didn't do it on my second kit and my 2nd and 3rds were just ok.
