Hi all, first time grower here thanks for all the info and posts for me to troll on!
got 4 northern light x big bud autos from canucks seeds, on day 40 feeding AN sensi ph perfect coco mix, with voodoo juice and b52
plants seem crazy as they are taking a full dose of nutes with hardly any burns at all.
so i heard that you shouldnt start bloom nutes until the stretching from preflower stops
, but when should i start the bloom boosters? planning on runnin sensizym, bud factor X, overdrive and big bud

I'm no expert man but I use PK booster and I start it after vert stretch. I did give a plant from my current grow pk just as pistols showed and it cut the grow time down by 2 weeks at least not the tallest tho.

Well that almost makes me feel better, what would you suggest for nutes when these run out on me?

Well, personally I use GH FloraNova and that has worked well for me in my setup and conditions.
I also use their bio worm and bio essentials and throw in 4 tbl spoons of epsom salt in each 70 l batch, but thats just faith and for good luck lol
And I never have to measure anything(sure, I check once in clue moon when motivation grabs me), my tap water is 6,8 pH and hard, FloraNova at recommended dosage always stabilize with the bios and epsom at 6,3-6,5 pH

The price is right too, always look at how many liters or gallons of feed a bootle will give you when used at recommended dosage. And both auto's and photos, never seen any of the auto's are delicate baloney that some folks are floating, but maybe it just applies to FloraNova and not other nutes brands, couldn't say not having tried 'em lol
It would take a lot to persuade me to give another line/brand a go, many have tried but nobody has been convincing lol

If I think more is needed for a particular strain, I sometimes add more PK, but thats just changing the ratios of the basic nutrients, nothing fancy expensive boostering about it hahaha

I've been experimenting with GH's product called Ripen, and it works well, somewhat to my surprise, and it's cheap as chips compared to other PK products, but again, there's nothing boosting about it, rather the opposite.... Starvation lol
