I am currently growing some sugar sprint peas and they have began setting pods. This may be a dumb question but should I switch to bloom nutes with peas? BTW, using maxigro and maxibloom.
Not sure. The maxibloom seems to be specifically designed for flowering. What you actually need is a "fruiting" or "ripening" mix.
What normall works for me is . .
I dilute my growmix by about 1/4, and then I add some potassium sulfate. So, I bring down the nitrates and increase the potassium. I use an EC meter to maintain the conductivity.
Thanks for the reply,I actually ordered floramato to use when flowering but I recieved the maxibloom instead and when I called for a replacement they told me to keep the maxibloom and they would ship me my floramato so I figured I would try it. I went to GH website and their product description says its for flowering/fruiting plants. The NPK ratio is 5-15-14 so I believe it is low in nitrogen, does the P/K look right to you?
The N is a bit low IMO. It's perhaps good enough to put the plant under enough stress to start flowering, but fruiting(?) . . . not sure.
Perhaps you could mix maxigrow and maxibloom in a 1:1 mix?
