FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHEN USING A FULL LINE OF REMO AS DIRECTED, DO I NEED TO FEED ANYTHING ELSE TO MY PLANTS?
Your plants don’t “need” anything else. The most common things that people add are enzymes or microbial products, but these are optional. Both of these are completely fine to add to the Remo line. It’s always good to check with us before adding any additional products – most likely they won’t cause any harm, but more often than not, the ingredients are already included in the Remo line.

WHEN DO I START FEEDING NUTRIENTS TO MY PLANTS?
For seeds: When you see the first set of 2 serrated leaves, which is usually about 2 weeks after germination. Before that, they are getting all the nutrients they need from the seed itself.

For clones: As soon as the clones are rooted, they’re pretty much ready to go.

HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO FEED NUTRIENTS TO MY PLANTS?
Because plants uptake Remo Nutrients so easily, it’s important to make sure they are fed regularly to avoid deficiencies. Typically a plant should be watered/fed every other day and we recommend feeding every time you water, but this comes down to grower’s preference. It’s fine to include straight water once in a while but we don’t recommend skipping nutrients in more than one out of every 2 or 3 feeds (feed-feed-water or feed-feed-feed-water).
HOW MANY WEEKS DO I VEG FOR?
That is up to grower’s preference. The longer you veg, the bigger your plants will be. Bigger plants are not always better. Average veg time is around 3-5 weeks.
HOW MANY WEEKS DO I FLOWER FOR?
This is entirely strain dependent. Most strains have an 8-11 week flower time.
CAN REMO NUTRIENTS BE USED WITH AUTOFLOWER SEEDS?
Yes. Just follow the regular feed chart for autoflowers. Flowering starts when the pistils (white hairs) start to form in the leaf junctions. As soon as you see these, switch to the flowering formula, you’re in week 1 of flower.
DOES IT MATTER HOW I MIX THE NUTRIENTS?
No. The nutrients are all chelated, so they will mix up regardless of the order you add them.
WHY DO I NEED TO FLUSH AND HOW LONG SHOULD I FLUSH FOR?
You’ll want to feed your plants with only water for the last couple weeks before harvest to ensure any residual elements (any nutrients your plants didn’t uptake during the grow cycle) are flushed out of the flower, leaving you with the cleanest product possible. The main difference between flushed and unflushed flower is in the burn – if it burns black, it’s not flushed well enough…you want it to burn as white as possible.

Grower’s choice. We recommend 7-21 days.

WHAT SHOULD MY NUTRIENT SOLUTION PH BE AND WHEN SHOULD I CHECK IT?
For optimal nutrient uptake, pH should be between 5.8 and 6.5. Check it after mixing your nutrients, and before feeding the solution to your plants.
ARE YOUR NUTRIENTS PH BUFFERING?
No. pH will always depend on the pH of your starting water, it’s not possible to guarantee that pH will end up within a specific range. However, the line is pH stable – that means that after mixing and pH buffering (if necessary), the pH won’t change. Also, if you are always using the same nutrient ratios and the same water, the quantity of pH buffer will be consistent every time.
I USED A PH UP TO BUFFER MY NUTRIENT SOLUTION AND NOW MY PH IS TOO HIGH. CAN I ADD A PH DOWN TO BRING IT TO WHERE IT NEEDS TO BE?
We recommend you only use one or the other. Repeatedly buffering the same nutrient solution can cause chemical shock leading to the possibility of nutrient fallout and constant fluctuating pH. Because our line is pH stable, if you’re using the same water source every time, you should be able to add the same amount of buffering agent on each mix. With that in mind, if you overshoot your pH, you will need to try again. The quantity of buffer is relative to the quantity of water you’re mixing in. If you’re worried about accuracy, start with a smaller nutrient batch on your first mix and scale up.
DO I NEED TO USE REVERSE (RO) WATER WITH REMO NUTRIENTS?
Our feed chart is meant to be used with RO water (that means the water has very little or no TDS/EC). Treated (municipal) water is usually fine if the TDS content is below 200ppm.

If well water is being used, you may need to make adjustments if you are in an area that has very hard ground water…and, as a general rule, if you wouldn’t drink the water, don’t grow with it.

I'VE NOTICED MY PPM'S WITH REMO COME IN A LOT LOWER THAN COMPETING BRANDS. DOES THIS MEAN IT'S NOT AS STRONG?
No. We use high quality chelated ingredients, and no chlorides or carbonates. This means that the plants uptake them quickly and easily, and there is very little “waste” that the plant is not uptaking. Our PPMs do come in lower, but that doesn’t mean that the plant is getting less nutrients. It also means that our nutrients flush out more rapidly at the end of the cycle, resulting in a cleaner final product.
CAN I FOLIAR FEED WITH REMO PRODUCTS?
Yes, both the Velokelp and the Magnifical can be used as a foliar spray at a rate of 10ml/L (maximum) each.
WHAT MEDIUM DO YOU RECOMMEND?
Coco coir is generally what we recommend, as it is very easy to work with and it has very little nutrient charge, so you have complete control over your plants’ nutrient needs. However, Remo Nutrients can be used with any grow medium. Regardless of what you use, it’s best to check whether the medium already has nutrients added before jumping in.
I'M CURRENTLY USING ANOTHER NUTRIENT BRAND BUT WANT TO SWITCH. CAN I START USING REMO RIGHT AWAY, OR WAIT TILL MY NEXT RUN?
Every plant, every strain is different so we usually recommend either starting in veg (any time), or starting at the beginning of flower. Technically speaking, you should be able to add it at any time but there’s no need to assume the risk if you don’t need to.
