I am trying to work out a schedule that will work for me. I have had a few schedules sent my way, but they all include extra stuff. I am working with the Botanicare Pro Blend line using the following components:

Pro Grow
Pro Bloom Soil
Cal/Mag
Liquid Karma

I start counting weeks the day the bean pops through the soil (I germ in my medium) and I am currently using a nute'd soil (Sta-green cheap stuff). I have NOT used this schedule before, but will be doing so with my pH experiment in my blog (and also have a Dinafem Power Kush going with them).

My questions: should I taper off the flower nutes earlier? Should I start higher? Should I use LK higher for certain weeks? I am using well water for now, my ppms run 120-200 lately, is there too much Cal/Mag in my schedule?

Week
1 - plain water
2 - LK @ 0.75ml/gal, CalMag @ 1ml/Gal
3 - Gro @ 2.5ml/Gal, LK @ 1.5ml/Gal, CalMag @ 1ml/Gal
4 - Gro @ 5ml/Gal, LK @2.5ml/Gal, CalMag @ 2ml/Gal
5 - Gro @ 7.5ml/Gal, LK @ 3ml/Gal, CalMag @ 3ml/Gal
6 - Gro @ 10ml/Gal, LK @ 3ml/Gal, CalMag @ 4ml/Gal
7(1) - FLOWER - Gro @6ml/Gal, Flower @ 6ml/Gal, LK @ 3ml/Gal, CalMag @ 4ml/Gal
8(2) - Flower @ 12ml/Gal, LK @ 3ml/Gal, CalMag @ 4ml/Gal
9(3) - Flower @ 12ml/Gal, LK @ 3ml/Gal, CalMag @ 4ml/Gal
10(4) - Flower @15ml/Gal, LK @ 3ml/Gal, CalMag @ 4ml/Gal
11(5) - Flower @15ml/Gal, LK @ 3ml/Gal, CalMag @ 4ml/Gal
12(6) - Flower @ 12ml/Gal, LK @ 2.5ml/Gal, CalMag @ 3ml/Gal
13(7) - Flower @ 10ml/Gal, LK @ 2ml/Gal, CalMag @2ml/Gal
14(8) - Flower @ 7.5ml/Gal, LK @ 1ml/Gal, CalMag @ 1ml/Gal
15(9) - Flower @ 5ml/Gal, LK @ 1ml/Gal, CalMag @ 1ml/Gal
16(10) - Flower @ 2ml/Gal, LK @1ml/Gal, CalMag @0.5ml/Gal

You could use up to around 7ml of calmg without getting into the danger zone so your ratio is on the safe side. GL

I did a whole run with almost exactly the nutes you're using...

Following the label doses was just fine for me.

Plus of course, just watching them closely and adjusting CalMag accordingly.

Good Luck, I'm sure you'll do great!
