I am doing my first grow and received a free bottle of Fish Sh!t from fishheadfarms.com I was wondering if anyone has used this before or is it not even worth it at all. thanks for any help.

I have not personally used this product but can tell you that the content profile is outstanding. This is taking into account that you Are doing an all organic grow? Starting out with high quality organic soil without a bunch of time released fertilizers?
When you grow organic you are actually feeding the microbes in your soil so they break everything down for your girls to consume. This shit has everything you need to establish a healthy and complete rhizosphere

Looks nice!
Pretty sure what you have there is a soil conditioner not fertilizer.
Go ahead and dose it according to instructions. I've used FF soil and like it
What nutes are you using?

Any updates on this “shit” I just got a free sample and it sounds like a nice addition to an organic soil or teas.It contains no NPK so shouldn’t interfere with your mix.

Ironically, I no longer smoke and haven't in decades!
I have used the product Fish Sh!t. Along with a diet of Organic Teas, I recently grew a photoperiod Royal Cookies, in Great Lakes Water Only Living Soil and the results were phenomenal! Although, being new to growing Auto's and how fast they finish, I'm torn on how to go forward. In the past, I was a die hard, FF Trio kind of guy. Wanting to get away from flushing led me to giving Fish Sh!t a try.

Did you use the fish shit and just Great Lakes soil? Or did you add other stuff to it. I just picked up some Great Lakes soil.

So I started the girls off with pH balanced Water only and at around day 14, began feeding them. Every other watering they'd get a very low dose of Fish Shit. And I continued to do this throughout VEG. It wasn't until I flipped the Girls into flower, that I added a Homemade Organic Tea into the mix.

So at that point they'd get plain pH balanced water, next watering I'd add a low dose of FS to the water and the 3rd watering they'd get tea only. I continued this regiment throughout Flower. Once the Trichome's started to cloud up it was back to balanced water only.

* Royal Queens (Photo Period) "Royal Cookies" Seed
*7 Gallon Fabric Pot
*Great Lakes Water Only Soil
*Fish Shit
*Homemade Organic Tea

One word of caution! The mixing instructions on the bottle of FS can be a bit confusing. The recommended dosage refers to both metric and standard volumes. Just recently and with another grow I ran into some troubles, when I didn't take the time to read the bottle thoroughly. I picked it up, saw it called for 3-6 ml of Fish Shit and assumed it was per liter. Thank God I never use any product at full strength, because it was per Gallon. Needless to say, the outcome wasn't good. I'm still nursing these babies back to health and with a little luck they'll survive.

Hope this is of some help to you and others!

What did it do to your plants @Johnny Mack ? I also wonder about the NPK values of this product. It doesn’t say it contains any but fish shit is very high in nitrate nitrogen isn’t it.? I have only used it very lightly at like 1-2 ml per gallon and haven’t really noticed any real difference in my plants. They look healthy but they did before too so idk.

Good question and considering it wasn't a side-by-side grow comparison, I can't answer that question with any authority. Although, I can attest to it's simplicity versus other grows when using other nutrients such as FF.
