Advanced Nutrients Nutrient Calculator
    #504991 - 12/12/10 02:58 PM (5 years, 11 months ago)

OK, I switched to flower 3 days ago. My plants are thirsty and I've only been giving them water for the last week and a half. I'm thinking time for nutrients.

I went on AN's website and used their nutrient calculator which apparently has a pretty good reputation.

I'm just wondering if these levels seem correct for me. All my plants are in 4 gallon pots (soil is FF Happy Frog). The vessel I'm mixing my nutrients in is just a standard plastic gallon jug.
At the top of the calculator page it asks what size reservoir, I put in 1 gal


Those levels surprised me because this is what I've been using up to this point, it leaves me with about 800 PPM.
Sensi Grow pts 1/2: 1.5 tsp of each / gal.
B52: 0.77 tsp / gal.
Voodoo Juice: 0.77 tsp. / gal.

Now it's saying to use:
Sensi: ~1 tbsp / gal
Bud Factor X: 0.5 tbsp / gal
Voodoo Juice: 0.5 tbsp / gal
Tarantula: 0.5 tbsp / gal
(1 fl. oz. = 2 US Tablespoons)
Note that those are tablespoons as opposed to teaspoons which I've been using.


I think I've been fucking up all along and was supposed to use tablespoons. :facepalm: If so this post just stands as a reminder for newer growers to quadruple check all of your units and measurements!!

anyone else use AN that can offer some advise here or throw in what you use for AN nutrient dosage?

Yah, unless you enjoy burning your plants to hell, don't follow the doses in that chart.  I put their feeding chart to the test last run and ended up with so much salt buildup the root ball sparkled when it hit the light (no lie, looked like glitter). 

I used 16 ml sensi A+B 8 ml bud candy 8 ml big bud and it was right around 2000-2100 PPM.

Right now I'm using 6 ml A+B 8 ml bud candy and 8 ml big bud and I'm right around 900-920 PPM with that dose.

I personally wouldn't follow their measurements, but the timeline for their products worked fine for me at least.  You can always see for yourself I guess, but I wouldn't recommend feeding your plants that much food.

Coda those are the same amounts that they're suggesting.
16ml = ~1 tbsp


On a side note:
I am concerned that my previous regimen of nutrients wasn't sufficient because I'm getting a lot of dying leafs in the lower/middle parts of the plants.

However, I'm not experienced enough to know if this is burns or deficiencies.

A grower in the next town over said he had to add Cal Mag to his (well) water and that helped him with some type of problem; I never saw his problems so can't tell if they're the same.

anyway I wound up going with your/their reccomended dosage.

I went under by 1ml on the sensi and under by 0.5 ml on the Bid X Factor, Tarantula, and Voodoo Juice.

5 days into flower the main stems on the chemdawg x guavas are already getting a little crystalline :cool::thumbup:

The dose I use is 6 ml, if you're using 15 that's way higher then me :smile:

oh man I'm sorry, guess I misread that :vaped:

oh well I used 15 ml sensi a/b and 7.5 ml tarantula and bud x facor. ppm was at 825. no signs of burning :shrug:
I'll continue to use this regimen and see if my root ball has much salt build up as yours did
