    3 gallon pots, general hydroponics nutes maxi series http://generalhydroponics.com/maxiseries/
    I waited until 4 weeks, everyone said to not use nutes in FFOF until one month,, so thats what I did, and I mixed the nutes at half strenght also,, and WHAM!! i got leaf hook and cllaw, bad,
    I went back to straight water, for the rest of the grow and they recovered pretty well, leafs looked like shit by the end of the grow, but I managed to harvest a few jars of good smokable weed from it,
    I really loved the last 2 grows in ffof ,, where I used water only the whole ride, plants were healthy, i did not have to mix nutes or ph water, nor did I have to spend extra money,, ffof is sold near me for only 12 dollars per bag,

    on my first grow with fox farm ocean forest without nutes it did fine all the way threw im new to auto's and im going with the same style cause i figured the soil would have it all and the plants would end up using everything the soil can offer before its even over compared to my previous experience were i had a plant for many months and it turned out healthy plant with no need for nutes but im sure it could of gotten better yield if i had some but i didnt use any and worked great for me also i can find it locally for cheap $8.99 for small bag and 1.5cu ft for 20$ and happy frog goes for cheaper and bigger ammounts

    Guys autos don't mind nitrogen at all! Just the correct amounts. I have given my plants nothing but canna coco a+b and a few doses of potash. Simple as fuck. No bud boosters, no molasses, nothing else... On day 41 and nearly a meter tall.

    That is the ting lol. I didn't feed it hardly at all. I gave it 5ml i believe when i did feed it. to start slow(4-2-2) general organics VGANIC line. I did also give it some CaliMagic which has N in it aswell. Maybe that over did it slightly. Not really sure lol. fuckin thing showed tox for a while. Which i then fed some molasses every few weeks. Only real feed was the first one lol. Thing still packed on the weight nicely though.

    Plants are looking good man. Keep it up. Did you happen to water them before the photos haha?

    My experience has been that they don't seem to like veg nutes but they seem to LOVE BLOOM nutes.

    I started a 3 Northern Light auto's as well. 1 Started to flower VERY early and the others are still growing. I topped the plant on the top and the bottom plant is just growing naturally.
