Is there any thing I should watch for when switching from Flora Nova ...I use soil and trays.... the measurements seem high to me? Is BC strictly Hydro ?How should I compute the soil varible ? Anyone? ...and what does it mean Add Boost First ? Iput them all together and Feed 5 gal. at a time . Am I wrong?
There is nothing in particular you should watch for when switching nutrients, just keep an eye on your plants and ensure they are responding to the new formulas.
The Recipe for Success can be used in soil mediums with fantastic results. The difference is the frequency of use. In hydroponics, the Recipe would be fed to the root zone of the plants during every irrigation cycle. However, with soil based mediums the frequency of use needs to be reduced in order to avoid a build up of salts in the soil that would no doubt occur with continued use.
Many users employ the "Rule of Thirds" when using our Recipe in soil mediums. This is to say that the full strength Recipe for any given stage of growth is fed to the plants at every third irrigation (Fertilizer, Water Water, Fertilizer, Water, Water). To be sure that excess salts are not building up in your soil, checking both the PPM and the pH of your runoff (liquid that escapes the bottom of your planting container after irrigation) is a good idea.
Also, be sure to flush stored nutrients out of your soil for about a week prior to harvest using only plain water.
As for adding BC Boost first: draw your 5G of fresh water, add the BC Boost and agitate, then add BC Bloom or BC Grow, and then add Thrive Alive and Awesome Blossoms (be sure to agitate the solution each time you add in a new product), then check your pH and adjust if required.
