Aquarium air pump
    #659236 - 02/16/13 11:00 PM (3 years, 9 months ago)

Hello, I'm new to the grow world and I'm considering buying the combo ferts here http://www.ebay.com/itm/Organic-Fertilizer-Combo-Deal-by-BMO-Super-Plant-Tonic-GIG-FH-and-FP-/261166484233?pt=Fertilizer_Soil_Amendments&hash=item3ccebc4b09 combined with FFOF in 10 gallon pots outdoor. I've heard these ferts can be improved by mixing and using an aquarium air pump for a few days to increase beneficial bacteria. I've got two air pumps I'm considering, both seem to be very similar. I'm just wondering what you guys would choose between the two.

Sorry I meant this for the Soil/organics thread, if a mod could move it that would be awesome.

You'll get more views here, so I'm gonna leave it.


I'd pick the first one.  Is that your only question??

16-32 gallons for soil per bottle. Roughly how many plants could I fertilize with that in a single season using 10 gallon containers?

Sorry thats probably a complicated question. Just found this so I can try to figure it out.

.
Krunkpot.... I don't feed Grow it Green until week 4 of veg growth and do so at a full strength dose. NPK 5-2-5
.
Then at week 6, I mix full strength Grow it Green and a half strength dose of Flower Power to bump up the numbers. NPK 5.5-6-8.5 - plus one tablespoon of High P Bat Guano (0-7-0) for a total of 5.5-13-8.5
.
At week 8, I drop the Grow it Green to a half strength dose and use the Flower Power at full strenth dose. NPK 3.5-9-9.5 - plus the one tablespoon of High P Bat Guano again, for a total of 3.5-16-9.5
.
For week 10, No Grow it Green & full strength dose of Flower Power. NPK 1-8-7 - plus one tablespoon of High P Bat Guano (last time) for a total of 1-15-7. Then for weeks 11 & 12 plain water only.
.
For feeding, if you do so weekly - give each plant one quart. If you feed every two weeks - give each plant two quarts each.
.
.
Since, I feed every two weeks, I apply my SPT on my watering only weeks, at a full strength dose (if I notice any deficencies - I add a little seaweed extract & 1/2 ounce of Molasses to each gallon of SPT I mix up). If you wanted to use the SPT weekly, just use it at half strength.
.
As far as dechlorinator solution, Seamaiden is the expert there. If you sent her a private message, I'm sure she would give you good advice.
.
I have used the cheap (dechlorinator only stuff) from Walmart, in the past. But I am lucky enough to have an old hand dug well in my backyard. I get water from there or a stream near my plants when needed.
.
Hope this helps.....
Keep it Real....Organic......
