Re: Hib Help? JIM?


Awesome. Thanks Dave. I have the Maxicrop and the Epsom salts so I'll
try that. When I get the chance I'll take a digital photo and send that.

 
Jim, how do you set it up where you send your photos to the group. That
would save Donna some time if I could just one up like that.

Hey Jesse

Something balanced like 10-10-10 or 16-16-16. Avoid super bloom stuff. 
They ain't keen on phosphorus. Also if you have epsom salts and or chelated 
iron that would be good also. Epsom salts at the rate of one tablespoon per 
gallon of water will help green up your leaves nicely.
