    The Aquagold Finisher bag says it's for "foliar spray" which I thought was different as I assumed it was for soil.

    How should it be used in hp promix soil watering (not foliar)... one teaspoon per gallon.

    Anyone have any experience with this stuff. @RM3

    Also I saw someone asked on her about their shipping... it's a plain brown box with a basic label on it and bag (with label) is pack well in the box, hope that helps.

    Been usin it over a year now in conjunction with Jack's Citrus

    The Aquagold line "IS" jack's cannabis nute but they won't tell you that unless you are in a legal state

    How you use it would depend on your water quality and medium as well as your growing style

    I follow no schedule, feeding only what is needed so in my world a tsp would be overkill

    best to do that start with 1/4 tsp and work your way up thing 8)

    I guess the thing I noticed was it said it as for "foliar spray" on the package. That kind of threw me off.

    Have regular city water with avg ph of 7.0 and pro mix.

    I found that they have two products they have "aquagold finisher" and another "aquagold" product. I got the finisher as I assumed "finisher" was for bloom.

    I'll back off and go with a lower dosage.

    Are you using Jack's Citrus in bloom with Aqua Finisher as I would thing AG was a complete product but if jacks citrus is needed that's fine.

    Also got the potassium phos 0-0-52 you recommended in an earlier post saying it increased potency ... not sure how to add it or strength bag says 2 table spoons per gallon but that seems like way to much.

    Any recommendation you have for feeding (in bloom) would be great, this is all new just trying to get a good sch together with this stuff.

    side note: The ag looks to be a super high quality product from looking at it and seeing how it dissolves.

    Didn't go the citrus route per some rec's on AG I read, have AG. After a week... as label says, AG is a high quality product.

    Very rarely have I seen a product of such caliber.

    It would vary as needed but I have seen folks startin out that mix 1/2 tsp citrus with a 1/4 tsp ag for veg and then flip it in week 3 of flower and that is a good starting point. But once again your goal as a grower should be to learn to read what they need and feed accordingly.
    also 1/4 tsp of potassium sulfate once a week startin in week 3 as well, and yes you can mix em all together

    I'm focused on bloom right now (have jacks 20-20-20 for veg and I'm going to switch to citrus when it runs out)

    Watch them see what they need, I concur.

    Generally speaking (in bloom flower only): 1/2 tsp per gallon of ag and 1/4 tsp of citrus per gallon then starting week 3 into bloom add 1/4 tsp per gallon of potassium sulfate in addition to those two once a week.

    Making sure I get the general (bloom) formula / ratio right as you were on point with the ag recommendation. Can only imagine the results on your end with the overall blend if it improves on the already high quality ag by itself.

    Thanks

    i also wonder about ph stability w jacks.. ive heard its ph balanced to 6.0 but that may be at full strength,, if im only using a 1/4 tsp per gallon i wonder if ill be adding lots of ph down.. w/ gh maxi at 1 tsp per gallon my tap is perfect at 5.8 and it will rais slowly over a week to say 6.2 but i have to top off the rez every few days anyways so i just adjust ph...

    my tap water has a ph of 7.0 and 70 ppm after i add nutes its like 5.8 ph and 900-1100ppm w/ maxi
