Hi im a TBI patient and this is my second outdoor grow and im looking for some advice. I just purchased green house big bang seeds from my local medicinal seed retailer. i purchased shultz professional potting soil with slow release plant food. i also picked up shultz 10-15-10 liquid plant food and plant-prod ultimate flowering plant fertilizer 15-30-15.. i know i still need a ph test kit and some ph down as big bang apparently grows best at a PH level of 5.5 ......... any comments or suggestions would be great, i really want to yeild alot of good medicine this year. as my grow progresses i will post pictures and updates on my crop. Thank You.

THe plant only needs ph 5.5 in rockwool or perlite or soilless mix.
In the earth or potting soil it needs ph 6.8.
Just pop the seeds in, and let em go. With the potting soil you got you won't need any fertilizer until the plant is 4-6 inches tall with a few sets of leaves.
Post pics when you can, it really helps us.

thanks for the help, im gonna start in a week or so, just waiting for a little warmer weather and ill definatly keep you posted with pics
I wish you better luck than I had with thoses beans. I ordered an recieved a breader pac of "Big Bang" from "Greenhouse Seeds" and not one of them sprouted.
I am a long time grower and I have never had such bad luck with any seed. To be fair I did purchase these seeds through a middle man and they might have been old seeds. For your sake I hope you got a fresher batch.
I mention this because you are just starting out and if you had a failure rate as high as mine you might have thought that you were doing something wrong when in fact it could be that you got sold old beans.
Good luck with your grow.

Yea, was going to say, probably not the strongest smoke from those seeds, but I guess they'll work.
Also, you might want to return the fertilizers and buy some cannabis specific ferts, or some just some good old Alaska Fish Fertiliser. The ones you got I thnk are for general light application to your garden.
Hopefully you have a nice rich organic soil outdoors to grow in and won't need to many ferts, but try fish and then when the plant is budding buy a organic canabis flower fert. It'll cost a bit more but will really be worth it.

oh man i wouldn't know what to do if the seeds didnt pop i paid $150 for 5 feminized seeds in original packs... and can someone tell me where i can get some cannabis specific ferts for outdoor and how much they cost
Ouch, $150. Not trying to be a jerk but hit the attitude seedbank banner for a quik comparison. Like 25% of what you paid delivered to your door. Something for future reference is all. Everyone started out somewhere and made most of the same mistakes getting going so welcome to the learning curve. If you're like me you'll hit the wall repeatedly but pay attention rather than panic and you'll be fine.
The Schultz stuff will work but it's not my fav' either here. Remember your talking with weed snobs so be prepared for a lot of personal preference stuff too. To answer your question botanicare, dutch masters, AN, canna... frankly a bunch more too work well with cannabis. For me it's just personal preference because they all do the same thing (or are supposed to anyway). I keep it simple and use a veg, bloom, vigor blend so it's veg/vigor or bloom/vigor and a tick of ph down for my needs depending on where I'm at in the cycle (or what's on hand). All you really need is one that you have a handle on and that's just experience.
Good luck, --r

that strain sounds nice i would think a sweet flavor would come from it but i guess the swiss miss can be the strawberry everyone loves so much??? either way i want to see that grow myself.
