If you have a general hydroponics store in your town then go get some floranova bloom! You won be sad



How exactly does it work and whats the price? Like does it do something special for the plant now that its flowering? And how would I apply this to my aerogarden since I already have nutrients in it. Would I empty my water reservoir and put new water in with the new nutrients? Thanks for the help btw

Here is a picture update.
Day 32 overall
Day 11 flowering
bigger plant is 7inches smaller is 3 inches.


Okay here is the pictures, first I figured I would show my overall setup. Its the aerogarden box with black trash bags to keep light out. Inside I have a small tower fan made for a desk.

Overall picture

Its beautiful


The middle is getting veryyyyy bushy


This small plant is flowering also, I wonder how much it will yield. Any guesses???


And just for fun all the roots from the big plant

I'ts just specifically formulated for cannabis (although they never publicly state that, it's very obvious that it is). So providing your plant with the exact amounts of all the nutritious ions it requires to flower will make it put out far more weight and quality than just using generic nutrients designed for random herbs and veggies.

and yes, dump out your current water and add some of the floranova to a fresh batch. about 4-5ml per gallon would be my guess, but it could probably handle up to 6 or so. Can you show us a picture of the root system so we can see how developed it is?

Also, how strong is your light? the stronger the light the more food you can give your plant, and the more you will yield

yeah I would think those could handle a full strength feeding, around 5-6ml/gallon or so. once again keep an eye on them to make sure it's not too much food but they should be good.

Adding more light will be greatly beneficial too if you can afford it.

Well I was able to add two 13 watt cfls during veg that were just lamps around my house, but with the way I got everything setup I can't really fit it in there now that I have everything light proofed.
Just a couple of questions. First on this page it shows two floranovas. Which is the correct one?? https://877gehydro.com/nutrients/hydroponic/FloraNova.php

Also do you happen to know if they normally sell smaller cheaper bottles. Cause I may only use it once in which case I really can't afford a $30 bottle. Thanks for the help man


Oh ya btw you say it looks like my roots can handle a full dose. Does that mean smaller plants cant handle it. Will my small plant be okay. If you can tell in that picture with the ruler the roots are 8inches long

honestly I have no idea how your smaller plant will handle it, but the general rule is that giving them more light means they can handle more nutes :shrug:  My guess is that it will be fine, but like I said, keep an eye on it and if it starts to look unhappy then you should dilute your solution a little

Thanks for all the help sorry I keep asking more questions. But I just called my store here they got it, but only in quarts and gallons. Do you have any other suggestions for nutrients. I'm hoping to either find some cheaper ones or something that comes in a smaller container since I only need like 10ml's after all

I would not recommend FloraNova for him.

He's probably not going to need anything that spectacular, I mean that's literally recommending the top of the line product for a first timer...

Not very logical, especially since he only has 2 tiny plants.  I would just get some regular bloom fertilizer, unless you wanted to shell out 2-5x as much money and get something from the hydro store.

Look for this.  It is what I used when I was completely broke and couldn't afford Fox Farms or General Hydro nutrients (top of the line) and it worked just fine.  I have honestly not even noticed any differences as of yet, but that may change nearer to harvest time.



It was about $5 and I still have 3/4 of it left after 3 years.

But if you feel like you are going to keep growing consistently from here on out, and are going to try to upgrade your setup and make a hobby out of this, then I would recommend getting FloraNova Grow and Bloom. 

I have some of both, and they were $27/each at the hydro store, I know, Ouch!

Ok well I read all of you and Harry's posts now, and since you only need it this one time I would DEFINITELY try to find something like I posted above.

Ditch the Aerogarden nutrient pucks, they are probably doing more harm than good at this point.  Just go ask someone at a store if you are really that clueless as to what you need.  I hate to break the news but with that lighting, you are going to be lucky to harvest anything worth smoking.  Buds WILL grow, but they may be extremely airy, and might take a loooooooong time to finish.  I know I sound like an :ass: but it's the honest truth.  I'd say you will probably get 1-3 grams of dried bud.  :sad:

I've seen people remove the top (light) of the AG before and hang their own CFL rigs above it and get much better finished results. 

:2cents:

Okay I'm looking into the lights and nutrients. But I got a question. My plant is really starting to bud well now. But I have noticed in the middle of my plant where most the bud forms there are some small branches with just one leaf. They have no bud on them. Can I just cut them off to trim up the plant so more light can reach the bud???
