Advanced Growing Technique - The PERFECT nutrient dosing schedule

As your plant grows, they will need different quantities of nutrients to optimise their growth. This varies between plants, but a good schedule can be seen in the table below. The Table outlines how many scoops (standard spoon or sachet provided by EA) of nutrient you should add to a plant during a plants different growth phases. Note that our have a volume of 0.5mL.
The type of nutrient is separated into "Growth" and "Fruiting". Growth should be used the whole duration of growth for something like a leafy green or herb. Fruiting should be used once flower buds appear on plants that bear fruit/veg and require higher levels of phosphate for growth.


Growth Fruiting
Seedling  Early Growth Late Growth Transition Early Bloom Mid Bloom Late bloom Ripen Finish
Indoor Smart Garden Growth 1 3 4 3 - - - - -
Bloom - - - 1 4 4 4 1 0
XL Indoor Smart Garden Growth 9 17 26 17 - - - - -
Bloom - - - 9 26 26 26 9 0
EcoKitchen Growth 8 16 24 16 - - - - -
Bloom - - - 8 24 24 24 8 0


    The various stages of growth are defined as follows;

  • Seedling - First stage of growth, defined by a single set of "baby" leaves.
  • Early Growth - First set of "True" leaves.  
  • Late Growth - Multiple sets of true leaves
  • Transition - Buds begin to develop
  • Early Bloom - First Flowers bloom
  • Mid Bloom - Most flowers are open
  • Late Bloom - Multiple fruits growing
  • Ripening - Most fruits are a developed
  • Finish - A few days pre-harvest

Fertilisers, though currently essential to Australia's agriculture industry, are being over-used in order to extract as much profit from the land as possible. Excessive consumption results in devastating consequences to our surrounding environments as these often harmful chemicals are carried by runoff into local waterways.
