Fox Farm Nutrients

Fox Farm Nutrients are used in the vegetative and flowering / budding stages of growing marijuana, as they are formulated specifically for marijuana plants, giving each plant the proper amount of nutrients it needs to grow healthy. Fox Farm plant food nutrients are a very popular brand of indoor marijuana growing chemicals and nutrients. Fox Farm is sold in most every grow supply store as well as online (where I prefer to buy due to price). Fox Farm product line consists of Tiger Bloom, Big Bloom, Open Sesame, ChaChing, Beastie Bloom and Bush Doctor Sledgehammer. The last 4 Products are used in small quantities and only at specific times during the grow.

Fox Farm Feeding Schedule for Soil

Here’s the FoxFarms Feeding Schedule for Soil… Hydro is MUCH more complex, unless you use bubblers then you can follow a Phasic feeding schedule (At end of weekly schedule)

Sprouting and week 1–2Tbs week 2– 2tsp Grow Big + 2Tbs Big Bloom Week 3–3tsp Grow Big + 2Tbs Big Bloom Week 4–JUST 3 tspGrow Big + 1/4 tsp Open Sesame

Week 5 same as week 4 unless going 12/12– Week 5- OR–day 1 of 12/12– 2 tsp Tiger Bloom +1TBS Big Bloom + 1/2 tsp Open Sesame Week 6–same as above Week 7– 2 Tsp Grow Big + 2 tsp Tiger Bloom+1TBS Big Bloom + 1/4 tsp Beastie Bloom

Week 8– 2Tsp Grow Big + 2 tsp Tiger Bloom +1TBS Big Bloom + 1/2 tsp Beastie Bloom
Week 9– 2 tsp Tiger Bloom +1TBS Big Bloom + 1/4 tsp Cha Ching

week 10– Same as above
Week 11–2 tsp Tiger Bloom +1TBS Big Bloom + 1/2 tsp Cha Ching

At beginning of week 11–Check Trichomes– Flush if ready.. otherwise, continue as with week 11 every week until you do the final flush.

Also recommended–but not a necessity–
Bush Doctor Sledgehammer(prevents lock-out use 2 drops per gallon of water between feedings starting in week 4 of 12/12

Using Fox Farm for Hydroponic Growing

fox farm schedule hydro

PHASIC SHEDULE: (per gallon)
(follow this for bubblers, OR you can use these amounts when watering in soil but is not as good as the weekly schedule for soil)

New Clones, or when seedlings get 3 sets of leaves- 1tsp Grow Big + 2tsp Big Bloom
Week 3 of veg (unless going 12/12) ADD 1tsp Grow big + 2 tsp Big Bloom
4 Days Before going 12/12- Add ¼ tsp Open Sesame
Day 1 of 12/12 Drain Reservoir & refill. Add 2 tsp Tiger Bloom + 1TBS Big Bloom + ½ tsp Open Sesame
Week 3 of 12/12Add ¼ tsp Beastie Bloom
Week 5 of 12/12Drain and refill reservoir Add 2 tsp Grow Big + 1 tsp Tiger bloom + 1 TBS Big Bloom + ¼ tsp Cha ching
3-5 Days Before harvest– Drain and refill reservoir add 2 drops Sledgehammer

keep the res filled in between feedings with ph adjusted water–

The reasonFox Farms doesn’t list nutes for weeks 2 & 4 is that it ASSUMES your res won’t go down, so you won’t NEED any additional nutes (if your res stays full- great!)..
but if the plants are pretty big, or the room is warm/dry– they can need refilling up to 3-4x a week!!! The chart doesn’t take that into account–
Remember– feed AT MOST 1x each week– only water in-between!
Use additional nutes from week one at 1/2 rate until in flower (between recomended feeds) then in flower– for additional feeds, use the nutes from the 1st week of flower at 1/2 rate in between…again–NEVER feed more than 1x a week!

Bubblers MAY use the weekly Schedules– BUT ONLY if you use an ec/ppm meter to keep the levels where they should be….
an ec around 1.2-1.5 in veg.. then 1.5 -1.7 in flower unlitt the last 2-3 weeks… then can go as high as 2.0. Watch your plants! they’ll tell you if you are over/under feeding!

The Blog

The Fox Farm feeding schedule is no joke. It might be over the top for some growers, but others willing to go the distance will appreciate it. The Fox Farm feeding schedule uses a vast array of fertilizers designed to enhance your grow. At times, the feeding schedule can be somewhat overwhelming as it requires up to 8 fertilizers in one application. Although easy to follow, the schedule is not for all growers. Some growers don’t have the time or the patience. However, those looking to take their grow to the next level will find that it is worth it.

When using the Fox Farm feeding schedule, I recommend using a premium potting soil. I’ve always been a big fan of Fox Farm because of my success with Ocean Forest. In my opinion, Ocean Forest is one of the best soils available for growing. When starting a new grow, I strongly recommend using a premium soil because it provides a nice buffer and sets you up for success. For small plants like clones and seedlings, Ocean Forest has enough nutrients to last 4 to 5 weeks on its own. Be cautious when applying fertilizers to small plants because they don’t need that much at this stage and can easily burn your plants.

Fox Farm Feeding Chart

A successful harvest stems from healthy plants. This requires a proper amount of food packed with healthy nutrients. If you are following the Fox Farm feeding schedule, you more than likely are using the Dirty Dozen. The Dirty Dozen is Fox Farm’s complete fertilizer line. It costs around $80 and comes with everything you need. However, if you decide that the Dirty Dozen/feeding schedule is not for you, you can opt for Fox Farm’s Trio. The trio is a more simplified fertilizer regiment. I would also like to point out that the feeding schedule is designed for the Dirty Dozen. Therefore the instructions on an individual bottle will differ from what is recommended on the feeding schedule. As you will notice, the feeding schedule will require less of certain nutrients because it accounts for the additional nutrients on the schedule.

How to use Fox Farms Trio of Nutrients - Lessons from a Successful Harvest

Understanding Fox Farm feeding schedule

I use coco-peat (equal parts coir and sphagnum) heavy with vermiculite and perlite cut moderately with organic potting soil (to avoid Cal-Mag products) enriched with organic non soluble granules for slow release and the hydroponic trio with addition of alska fish fertilizer (5/1/1) for balance of nitrogen as needed swapped with the 3 part soluble bloom enhancement series (Open Sesame/Beastie Blooms/Ch-Ching) for flowering. I have been told I use too many different fertilizers many times over by many people, but the variety feed has served me well over the years. I water daily and monitor how much they take in and adjust accordingly to equal or less than daily consumption feeding every three to five days 1 ml per quart as listed for tsp/gal (for 4/5 tsp gal dilution) as needed until they reach dry and than feed based on week and water back up over the next one to two days and resume daily watering and weekly feeding as before. Full tsp/gal tends to burn to the point of crisp tips within a day even if followed by water, 4/5 tsp (4ml)/gal doesn’t damage from overfeeding as long as it is given less often and immediately watered if leaf tips curl up. Everything is given at Ph controlled and buffered @ 5.0-5.5 for optimal uptake of the medium and peak release of magnesium and calcium. i get up to two inch a day growth under 1 bank (out of 3) of 2x4’ T5HO paired with a 150w HPS. Take note: they don’t always get 2 feedings of each weeks scheduled feed and the 3 part soluble bloom enhancement series (Open Sesame/Beastie Blooms/Ch-Ching) should only be given once to twice each at critical points (timing is everything) by 1/2 stand-alone instructions if not on a refgular feeding day and 1/2 of “with other nutrients” instructions if it is, though i tend to give them a day apart in this case, enhancer first so as not to over-power them with it. Open Sesame is best given the day of or before the first 12/12 cycle and again 2 weeks later if needed (ie. branches without buttons), essentially on the last day weeks 4 and again on the open of 6 if needed . Beastie Blooms is best given as soon as the buttons open and every 2 weeks until Giving cha-ching on the start of the second to last week and again on the start of the final week to promote ripening (Cha-Ching can also be used twice a week to encourage early ripening of longer-haul strains, though I highly reccomend against this technique if you are looking for any kind of quality, especially in quantity), and here is where it gets tricky: Beastie Blooms on the close of weeks 6, 8, & 10 for ALL strains (and 12 &14 for longer flowering strains as applicable), and Cha-Ching on the start of week 11 & 12 for 8 week strains, 12 & 13 for 9 week, 13 &14 for 10 week, 14 &15 for 11 week and 15 &16 for full twelve week strains. You have to know what you are working with to time them right. They contain high feed ratios along with essential and non-essential micronutrients for thriving, exceptional blossoms. But over using them or mis-using them can really hurt your yeild’s end-weight or quality or even both. Some people even urge to use them in place of one scheduled feeding for the week, but I end up seeing a lot of deficiencies whenever I have tried it that way in anything but soil, and lacked the brunt of the desired effect given in place of one feeding each week in soil. I have used the 3-part soluble enhancement series for years on more than just cannabis, and with it grown a 3lb foot-and-a-half Jalapeno, a half pound Habernero the size of a softball, vines full of 1-2 pounder Tomatoes, and Sunflowers with 3 foot to 4 foot across HEADS weighing in at up to 35 lbs of flower cut from tree-trunk sized stalk (4’ diameter and 12’ high) bearing up to 23 lbs of sunflower seeds each, and did it using the method described above for timing. Bottom line: use less than it says once to twice weekly depending on how fast your plants go through nutrients. Bigger plants need every other watering feeds on sometimes 2-3 times a day watering. And in hydro systems its 2-3 ml/gal to reach the recommended/desired EC and PPM, even starting with RO water each change. In my systems I change the water every other week, run the system with clean water for about 2 hours to help flush everything out and reduce nutrient residue, and change it again using the appropriate concentration for the starting week and topping off the second week with pre-adjusted solution for the appropriate week. This does not always get the appropriate nutrient levels, but it’s much less work than changing out a dozen systems each and every week. I hope this helps understand how the schedules work for those needing it.
