Best Nutrients and Fertilizers for Growing Cannabis – 2018 Reviews

Fox Farm FX14049 nutes - best fertilizers for cannabis

Laws have changed so that more people than ever can legally grow cannabis at home. They can grow marijuana for medicinal purposes and recreational use. Some jurisdictions are allowed to raise larger quantities of weed than others. But no matter what your legal limit is, your cannabis needs loving care and the best nutrients.

By nutrients, we mean fertilizers. Not all plants are equal, so what you feed to your houseplants isn’t necessarily good for your cannabis. Some nutrients make for better flavor and higher highs. So we’ve researched the top fertilizers for weed and reviewed them here for you.

Let’s begin with some assortment packs.

Each Go Box comes with pint bottles of BioThrive Grow and Bloom plus 8-ounce samples of each Go liquid nutrient like CaMg+, BioWeed, BioBud, BioMarine, and Diamond Black. Each nutrient is organic, but not all are OMRI listed.

Fox Farm understands how to feed weed so it produces large buds with great flavor. Their three-pack lets you try out their Grow Big, Tiger Bloom, and Big Bloom formulas. Some users enjoy raising their medical cannabis with these nutrients and report very positive results.

Fox Farm recommends starting with Grow Big to encourage lush vegetation. Then when your marijuana begins to bud, switch to Tiger Bloom. You can use Big Bloom throughout the whole growth cycle as a supplement.

Here is a smaller pint-size bottle of Big Bloom concentrate from Fox Farm. The manufacturer says it will intensify the odor and flavor of your weed with its special micro-brewed formula. It contains bat guana and earthworm castings, yum yum!

Apply Big Bloom throughout each growth cycle and especially when you notice that your plants are looking weak. One really nice feature of this fertilizer is that you don’t need to flush a couple of weeks before harvest so your cannabis is well-fed all the way to the end.

Let’s continue with more single formulas.

Probably everyone who’s ever raised houseplants knows about Miracle-Gro. Can you really put this stuff on your weed?

Miracle-Gro says their formula is safe to use on all flowers, vegetables, trees, and shrubs. You only need to add it to their water once every week or two to see results. They say it won’t burn leaves when you mix and apply it according to directions.

Our humble opinion is that you can do better than this. Miracle-Gro is better than nothing, but it’s not going to give you the best juicy buds like so many of these other nutrient formulas.

So with all these fertilizers for the flowering stage, how do you pick the right one for your plants?

We dug a little deeper to discover the answer.

Which nutrients are best for blooms?

Advanced Nutrients offers a complete range of fertilizers to accompany your weed’s growth from the very beginning all the way to harvest time. If you use their line of nutrients and follow their instructions, you’re practically guaranteed to have a successful harvest. In fact, their products have been positively reviewed by and featured in some well-known places like Weeds, Forbes, CNN, Reuters, and CSI.

They recommend feeding your plants a base of Grow, Micro, and Bloom until the beginning of the flowering stage. You can add in B-52 right to jump-start germination and root growth. Add in Overdrive when you get down to the last four weeks.

Then choose one of the bloom enhancers like Big Bud, Bud Candy, or Bud Ignitor. Typically, Big Bud is for hobbyist growers. Bud Candy and Bud Ignitor are for advanced growers with experience in raising cannabis.

Humboldt’s Secret Golden Tree

Humboldt’s Secret Golden Tree

Okay, we know that it can get pricey to purchase a series of specialized fertilizers. Not everyone wants to dive in like that on their first try. That’s why you may appreciate Humboldt’s Secret Golden Tree.

This little pint-size product makes up to 250 gallons of nutrient solution when mixed with water. It hurries your weed through the vegetation stage and onto flowering, plus it increases your blooms and harvest.

Humboldt recommends adding 2ml of nutrient to each gallon of water in your hydroponic reservoir. Mix in your base nutrient as well. When you hit the flowering stage, increase the Golden Tree to 5ml per gallon. Keep the PPM levels at 1000 but not more than 1800 at bloom.

Accessories

Besides your nutrients, here are a few other useful items to help you grow the best weed.

We mentioned that Advanced Nutrients says you won’t need to worry about pH levels if you use their fertilizers as directed. Well, we think it’s still a good idea to check the acidity of your plants’ solution especially if you’re growing hydroponically.

These liquids from General Hydroponics help you test pH and fix it if it’s out of whack. They come with the test tube you need to measure the fluids.

Make your own compost

Okay, you’re on a budget. We get that. Or maybe you’re living off the grid where stores don’t deliver. No problem. You can also make your own compost. It’s not terribly hard. But if you’re new to growing weed, this may not be the best or easiest option for you. You’ll run the risk of over-feeding, or burning it with too many nutrients, or under-feeding and starving it.

That said, let’s jump in. Hold your nose.

Method 1, the simplest way to compost

  • Dump your kitchen and garden waste into a pile or a trench and let it rot

Method 2, use a composting container

  • Having a container protects your compost from being invaded by critters and keeps the smell down to dull stink
  • A container will also speed up the process of decomposition
  • You can sometimes include earthworms in some containers

Method 3, use animal waste

  • If you already have farm animals making waste, you can deposit that waste on your compost pile but NEVER directly on your weed
  • Not recommended because of all the hormones and so forth that modern farm animals consume

Recommended composting containers

Using a container hurries up the fertilizer-making process and it keeps your compost in one neat place instead of stinking up the yard.

The Most Beautiful Composter in the World

Envirocycle Composting Tumbler Bin and Compost Tea Maker

This is the real name of this product, we didn’t make it up. The Most Beautiful Composter in the World is made by the company called Envirocycle Systems, Inc. It’s built from BPA-free plastic and comes fully assembled and ready to use. It even has a 5-year warranty.

Chef’s Star Stainless Steel Premium Compost Bin with Charcoal Filter – 0.6 Gallon

Check latest price on Amazon

Buy from Amazon.ca

At a little over half a gallon in size, this composter can sit in your kitchen so it can collect your orange peels. It has a charcoal filter to keep odors under control.

When composting, do this sh*t for best results:

  • Keep your compost pile moist but not wet
  • Drop in fruit peels, vegetable trimmings, grass clippings, leaves, anything plant-related, even newspaper and tea leaves
  • Avoid composting meat or oily scraps
  • Drop in soil every so often and stir
  • Stir again, about once a week

Some ingredients will add carbon to your fertilizer, others will add nitrogen. Carbon comes from wood, cardboard, pine needles, straw, hay, leaves, and wood ash. Nitrogen comes from vegetable and fruit scraps, coffee grounds, seaweed, and grass clippings. Egg shells are neutral.

The problem with making your own compost is that it’s hard to control your NPKs, or the levels of nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium. You can send your compost to a lab for testing (freeze a sample first). Cannabis is a bit picky, and each strain may need a little different amount of each basic ingredient for best results.

If you’re a new grower, try using pre-made organic fertilizers for your first go-round. Once you get a feel for how cannabis grows, you can branch out and try new things.

The best substrates and soils for growing cannabis

Loam like the soil in the Black Gold Potting Soil (in the Accessories section above) is the gold standard for raising cannabis if you’re not doing hydroponics or another kind of soilless setup. Loam is composed of 40% sand, 40% silt, and 20% clay. Roots can breathe and nutrients penetrate all the way down. You may choose to mix it with vermiculite and perlite. Vermiculite and perlite are great for aeration and drainage.

Clay is a common soil just by itself, but it’s terrible for growing weed. Avoid sandy soils, too. Peat moss is acidic, and not ideal unless blended with something else. Cannabis likes a pH of 6.5, just a tiny bit acidic.

Besides the liquid testing kit from General Hydroponics, if you plan to rely on compost for fertilizing your cannabis, invest in a pH meter. It’s a quicker and more reliable method for testing acid levels in your soil. Here are a couple of examples:

Benestellar Digital pH Meter with 3 Set of pH Buffer Powder

The Benestellar Digital pH meter has an LCD display that tells you down to 0.01pH how acidic or alkaline your nutrient solution is. Great for hydroponic setups.

Kany 3-in-1 Soil Moisture Meter, Light and PH acidity Tester

Check latest price on Amazon

The best part about the Kany meter is that you can stick it into soil, not just liquids. It measures acidity as well as moisture so it’s a very handy tool to have.

Selecting the correct levels of fertilizer according to stage

In the vegetative phase of growth, your weed will use a lot of nitrogen to grow big and leafy. You can get that from blood meal, feather meal, and bat and bird guano.

As the plants start to flower, stop feeding as much nitrogen. Your plants will need more phosphorus and potassium to bloom. Give them a ratio of approximately 15-30-30 for flowering, as in 15 percent nitrogen to 30 percent each of phosphorous and potassium.

If you need more magnesium, you can get that from dolomite lime. That also gives your plants calcium.

For bloom, increase the amount of calcium as well by covering the soil around your plants with a layer of finely ground eggshells.

Ideal temperature for growing indoors

Inside your grow tent, strive to maintain the air between 72 to 76 degrees F. That’s not too hard if you’re using LED lights because they run cool.

When to harvest

Around the end of the 12th week of growing your cannabis, you should be ready to harvest your crop. In the last week, keep a close eye on the trichomes each day. When they start to turn an amber color, it’s time to trim off your buds. Your flowers should also have white and brown pistils visible.

Recommendation

New growers and hobby growers may benefit more from pre-made organic fertilizers than trying to brew their own teas and make their own nutrients. If this describes you, pick one of the above fertilizers based on your needs.

For one or two plants as an “experiment,” try one of the General Hydroponics sets, either for hydroponics or for soil. Or try the Fox Farm Trio.

If you’re going for a bigger harvest, check out the Advanced Nutrients series. They take almost all the hassle out of feeding your plants. All you have to do is measure and mix it in water and then apply it according to their directions. Fortunately, they give clear instructions.

We don’t recommend Miracle-Gro, although we know someone’s going to try it anyway. Go for Humboldt’s Secret Golden Tree instead and prepare to supplement if needed.

Invest in a pH measuring system, either the liquid kind with a test tube or else a meter. It’s worth it if you plan to raise marijuana more than once. It’s also worth it if you want to keep your plants as healthy as possible.

  3. There are some semi decent products up there and then some real garbage as well. Some fairly priced products and some over priced junk they should be ashamed of selling. I would have expected better then again Ive only been growing marijuana for over 20 years now (and planted my first plant back in 1986) so … what would I know!

    1. Thanks for your valuable opinion. As you know everyone has an opinion, just like everyone has an asshole. And just like assholes, they all stink.

      1. Agreed! and well said lmao. Dont get me started on advanced nutrients either lol. I can grow much better organically for 1/10th the price. Obnoxiously Big is NOT necessarily better in this case. Ive literally tried 95% + of the products youve listed up above over the years and stand firm on my assho… errr opinion. Youve listed no earth juice products like Catalyst (a phenomenal product), no micorrhizae products, no fulvic/humic acids, no worm castings, no down to earth fertilizers, no rock dusts (basalt or gypsum), no top notch mediums. Amen to the fabric pots though 2 thumbs up on those! Nice touch on the Dr Earth products as well. Fairly priced and highly effective for the beginner. Fox Farm works yes … however. Shit I wouldnt have complained even if you added some pure blend pro up there! … ok I’ll shut up now 🙂

  5. Hello, thank you for all your information. I’ve been growing about 15 months. Cfl”s aluminium foil, heavy duty. Using cocoa pots. I’ve kept lights close, I’ve back them up, I’ve caused hermied, my last harvest just started getting nanners under the buds. I’ma not getting an ounce out if any plant. Garden last yr 4 beautiful, but helicopter made me too nervous. 9 cfl, 2 – 4ft fluorescent. I get 2 tote smoke, personal use but why can’t I increase bud size? pH good. I use Jiffy organic all purpose soil, it’s light fluffy. I feed Star Bucks coffee grounds n wood Ash that gets them going great with fat healthy stem. Feed them plants foods, 10-52-10 and grind up dry banana peels after 12-12 switch. I cannot get any bud bigger than my thumb. Maybe 1 ounce. I dry when triclones start to Amber. Pistils Amber. Dry n add to glass jars. Excellent smoke. I’ve had a couple 1 straight up stem bud that turns really dark after drying. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    1. Wow, very complicated. There are a lot of parts to your question that makes it verycomplicated. I suggest starting from the very basics, in other words starting over. You can download our free book here or you can buy a very comprehensive grower’s guide here. STart with the basics. Leave out all the bells and whistles like the coffee grounds (very acidic) and the wood ash. You could also go to our growers forum on our sister site 420beginner.com and ask for suggestions from other experienced growers.

  7. Miracle Gro? really? I would never recommend that, no matter what the company tells you. They just want you to buy the product, they don’t care if it means you’re gonna get sick in the end or your kids will be deformed. I’m no scientist, so I can’t say why it’s bad for you or what will happen. Even if I did I would probably be sued blind by Monsanto to remove the info.

    The cannabis community has come a LONG way, even just in the past 10 years that I’ve been paying real attention to. But we need to realize supporting companies like “Miracle gro” or “Black Magic” is not in our best interest. They would never have anything to do with us before weed was legal. Now they want to jump on the bandwagon, push their shitty nutes, and make as much money as possible. We need to support companies that give a damn. Companies that do their best to be sustainable, and really, just support companies that aren’t total dickheads.

    Also, I believe a lot of people reading this are new to cannabis cultivation. Instead of suggesting a lineup like Advanced Nutrients that consists of some 35 bottles in total. Or the GH that uses 5-6 bottles at a time? Why not make it easy on em? There are lines that are much easier to use, especially for a beginner. Like the Dyna-gro line, or even Supernatural Brand, which can get you through a full grow with 2 or 3 products. I feel like these would be much easier for someone starting out.

    1. Thanks for your comments, Saint Skinny. FWIW, I’d also rather not recommend Miracle Gro, and the post does actually say you can do much better. I guess it was originally included here because a lot of people are used to using MiracleGro products and feel confident with them, so new growers are likely to consider it.

      As it happens, this is a post we’re looking at updating soon (it was written before the present site owner took over, with only a few minor tweaks since), so will definitely bear your comments in mind when we get to it.

    2. 100% correct Skinny on the MG. MG is horrible for Marijuana plants. I used it and Shultzs on my first 2 grows.Bad idea. 2 OG K plants netted me 8 grams per plant. 250w HPS Blue and Red bulbs. Never again. Switched to Dyna Grow for the 3rd grow. Romulan, Larry OG and Green Crack. 28g on the Green Crack, 36g on the Larry OG, 30g on the Romulan. Great nutes. I recently switched to Avd Nutes. Grow,Micro,Bloom 3 pack. Doing Great. No need to adjust for ph, I get 300 gallons out of the 3 pack. I switched from HPS to 600w Led. I’ll update in a few months. Thanks for your post. Chuck.

  8. did anyone here ever try trz nutrients or boosters from the root zone? im looking for marijuana specific nutrients and need more info before i spend the dough.

  9. If someone would give me a list of everything I need for a cfl grow indoors in potted soil list everything I will need and price that I can order on amazon I truly would be thankful a schedule day to day from start to end what to do plus how long will it take email me with response pleas to rswiney95@yahoo.com thanks. Title the email Growers Help or whatever you wish but please be honest and truthful

    1. Thanks for the comment, JR! CFL grows aren’t our specialty, but this could be an interesting article for the site. We’ll look into it.

      In the meantime, maybe one of our readers can help out?

      (And hey, if anyone’s interested in writing that article or something similar, get in touch: contact@bigbudsguide.com. We’re always happy to take a look at article pitches from people who know about growing.)

  10. Need to know what is the best home based fertilizer for stem and bloom

  11. Hey! Someone in my Facebook group sharedd this site with us so I
    came to give it a look. I’m definitely loving the
    information. I’m bookmarking and will be tweeting this
    too my followers! Outstanding blog and wonderful design and style.

  12. Hi all, I’ll try to it short, and to the point. I’m getting fantastic results using only a few nutrients, a 315watt cmh light, and something called the Lucas formula. For the nutrients I use General Hydroponics Flora Trio, G.H. CalMagic, G.H. ArmorSi, and Hydroguard. As far as the feeding schedule I use the Lucas formula(look it up) . I grow in a 4×4 tent 5 plants in smart pots with a single 315watt cmh. The growth is really extraordinary. I use the GH Flora Trio because it is very cheap in price, easy to use, and if the scientists in the spaceshuddle used it to grow in outer space I think it may be a good choice. Oh and I’m growing in rinced, and buffered coco coir which I did myself(very easy to do).
    These are my two cents, there are many choices for a grower, but if your new to growing make it easy on yourself. The coco coir and GH Flora Trio is about as easy as it gets (for non organic growing).

    1. Thanks, Michael! I’d say that was worth more than 2 cents ☺️ Always good to hear from readers about what’s working for you.
