Fish fertilizer not good?

My plant hasn’t grown in a couple of days so I was looking to add some N. fish fertilizer is more readily available than Kelp (would have to order online) so I grabbed that. It wasn’t until I purchased it that I read all the mixed reviews on it. questioning whether it is truly organic. I bought some blood meal too but based on what I’ve read it’s not really good for brewing teas. I wanted to use something that would have a pretty quick release since ive got autoflowers. Would I be good with that fish fertilizer or should I take that shit back and just top dress with the blood meal?

PS- that fish fertilizer shit might be the worst shit I ever smelled in my life.

What brand is it?

Really, it is probably fine. Fish and certain other forms of sea-life (squid) have good nutrient content and they contain other organic compounds such as proteins\amino acids and carbohydrates that microbes like. I’ve been using the General Organics Bio-Marine, which is a squid product.

BTW Don’t use the this kind of stuff in AACT, except maybe in really small doses.

Alfalfa is my new N source of choice. I’d give them some alfalfa tea as long as they aren’t in full bloom yet (alfalfa contains some plant growth hormones best avoided in bloom).

Or. Just give them the Alaska Fish. They’ll like that, too.

That would be triacontanol. I feed alfalfa teas as a foliar in veg. I make my teas with EWC, Bunny poo and kelp using alfalfa tea instead of plain water. You CAN foliar feed in flower, it’s just a pain in the ass as you have to be careful to get the undersides of the leaves, and not get the buds wet. Best just to water with the teas at that point. I’ve never seen any detrimental effects from triacontanol during flower. Hmmm. Gotta research that.

Just be sure you don’t top dress with too much blood meal. It’s pretty fast acting. The faster acting a nutrient is, the more likely it is to burn. Get with me when you are ready to go into your next round and I’ll talk ya thru mixing a proper soil

Yup, triacontanol it is. The magic “secret” ingredient of SuperThrive. Good to hear you haven’t seen any negative effects during bloom. I gave my current round a light alfalfa tea around week 4 (and a light top dress because I don’t usually strain my teas). They seemed stoked about it.

My worms seem to love alfalfa, too. If I sprinkle a little on top of my worm bin bedding, the worms are all over it the next day. I bet these castings are going to be fantastic.
