1 tbsp of EACH of the 4-4-4 and the 8-2-4 per gallon of medium. Top dress and work into the coco. This according to Matt at Mr. Canuck's grow.

Edit.. He does this week 5 and then every 3 weeks until finish.

Edit- 2-8-4
1 tbsp per gallon? Try 4 lol

4 tbsp per gallon for the initial amending then 2 tbsp for top dressings :thumbsup:

Just to add to my post above lol

He states in the one vid that he does mixes of...

70/30 4-4-4 & 2-8-4 for veg
50-50 mix start of flowering
70/30 2-8-4 & 4-4-4 for flower

Now if you go back and watch all his vids again he claims a couple different ratios for the autos :rofl: And don't know if anyone has noticed but he has jumped in size for the pots he uses,He was using 3 gallons but the ones hes using now are at least twice that size so thats how hes getting into 5+ weeks off the first feeding lol

*EDIT*

Now hes using 5 gallon fabric pots in todays vid :rolleyes1:

I use the dr earth 4-4-4 at 2 tablespoons or 3 per gallon of coco coir. I use the dry ammendments to start my seedlings but once they get big i go to my sythetic nutrients.you cant go of dr earths recipe bc its made for soil witch already has nutrients in it. When i use it i double the amnt bc the coco has no nutrient value.

Any organic 4-4-4 will do. Its pretty much the same. Canucks uses gia green bc they sponcer him. It dosent mean its the best. I use dr earths bc its cheaper and easy to find. And it has the same stuff. I add alphalfa meal as well bc it contains tricantinol.
