    Hi Guys

    What's the best way to use the f/2 powder as fertilizer for phyto culture?

    By this I mean should I make a liquid mixture to add to cultures or add powder directly? I think using powder directly might be problematic as the small amount of powder needed per bottle.

    If I make a liquid mixture how long will it stay usable if refrigerated.

    Next question, if a culture is growing do you add more f/2 after a couple of days or only when splitting or adding fresh water?

    If you got it from us then, 1g feeds 10L at F2 strength. We mix it up with water into 1L bottle and just use maths to work out how much to dose each culture.

    We only feed once when we cut, nothing again until harvest. But this is dependent on many other factors, lighting ect

    Always refrigerate your F2 solution
