    Fox farm ocean forest ?
    If you used ffof it has food in it already and buffers ph as well .....it also has enough food in it to sustain a plant for about a month .

    Well since you used ffof and plant Is one month old its time to start nutes. Start out at 25% of recommended dose on bottle work way up. What type nutes are you gonna use?

    I'm not sure really any recommendations?
    This is my first attempt at growing so I'm not sure what's best.

    I know you didn't ask me personally ....but I think the fox farms big three would be a great place to start .....I used them for years with awesome results in the ffof soil .....but like he mentioned above ....start at quarter strength or so recommended dose .

    The big three are -
    Grow big
    Big bloom
    Tiger bloom

    Careful with the grow big and tiger bloom ....the big bloom is I believe the only full organic of those three ...you can use the regular recommended dose rite off the bat ....the other two ,,,start quarter strength if you go this route ....I've grew some amazing medicine with just that line up ....GL

    Fwiw, that is not a 1000w light. The vendor may call it that, but how many watts does it pull from the wall? My guess is about 200w.

    If it were 1000 watt light, it would be way too close to a plant that young. That one may be ok, but try raising it a bit.

    Figured I'd try and save him some heart ache with all the choices out there .....I think those three do quite well with his soil and for a new grower can achieve quite nice results......my exact line up for several years ....learned a lot and I grew some really nice plants with those .......KISS method at it's finest for nutes IMO

    I use ff nutes and ffof. For plants at week 5 of veg...

    big bloom 1.5 ml/gallon
    grow big 1.5 ml/gallon
    calmag plus 2 ml/gallon

    It should be ~ 230 ppm. You shouldn't need nutes before that.

    The light I bought was a KingLed 1000W on Amazon if you could look it up and let me know how many auto flowers you think I could grow with this in a 3X3X5 area that would be great.

    3x3x5 I would do 2-3 plants in that space.

    Also for what Its worth a 1000w kind led is 630 actual watts. Imho you should have your led around 18 inches above a month old plant.

    No way to know what the wall power is from the description. I'm going to stick to my guess of 200 watts total at the wall. At 1/2 gr/watt, you should get 100 grams (~ 3 oz) of finished bud IF you do everything else correctly.

    Plant count isn't that important. You will get about the same yield with 1 plant or 10 in that space. I'm wall to wall with 4 plants. But I could do the same with 1 or 2. Just takes longer.

    LED companies should be sued to high hell for marketing like this. First, those aren't 2x5watt chips. Mars hydro of all companies pointed out they are 2x 1 w chips. You can google the video or check youtube.

    And even if they were, there is no way they are driving them anywhere near to that power level. The heat would melt the damn box. They (cheap overseas led vendors) lie. Plain and simple.
