Based on our popular Grow Big® Liquid Plant Food, this is a special formula just for hydroponic systems. Grow Big® Hydroponic Liquid Plant Food is a potent, fast acting, liquid concentrate fertilizer specifically designed for hydroponic use.
When used as directed Grow Big® Hydroponic encourages vigorous vegetative growth. We add earthworm castings and Norwegian kelp into this special brew to encourage sturdier, healthier stems and leaves, but we also provide enough nutrients and trace minerals to create the kind of healthy branching that you’ll need later in the season for more abundant buds and blooms.
Hydro tip: Beginning the first week, use 2-3 teaspoons per gallon. Maintain pH between 5.8 and 6.3. When plants show their first sign of flowering, usually around week 5, switch to Tiger Bloom® and Big Bloom®.
Beginning the first week, mix 2 to 3 tsp per gallon of water, maintaining pH between 5.8 and 6.3. Check pH regularly as water quality can vary. When plants start to flower (around week 5), switch to Tiger Bloom and Grow Big. May also be applied as a foliar feed at 1/2 tsp per gallon. Use a pump sprayer and apply to both sides of leaves. Early mornings work best.
Conversions: 1 Teaspoon = 5mL | 1 Tablespoon = 15 mL | 1 Ounce = 30mL | 1 Cup = 240 mL

“I’m a die hard fan of FoxFarms nutrients through and through. I grow 90% of my fruits and veggies in 5 gallon hydro buckets but I’m starting a raised garden in my backyard as well. In my opinion GrowBig will take your plants in vegetative state to the next level. If you want 4-5’ pepper plants indoors then it’s very well possible. Last year I had watermelons plants that yielded several watermelons each plant in excess of 20-25lbs each but those were grown outside. The only thing you want to make sure is to not overdue it with the nutes. They are super concentrated and if you’re not careful you can get nute lockout and that’s not healthy for your vegetables or fruits and will most likely make them sick.”
“All I’ve used for a year now, because:
1) works better than others I’ve used
2) easier to flush from soil
3) more inexpensive
4) all natural
5) doesn’t cause Ph issues like others
Add to water then adjust Ph because it will drop your Ph due to the nitrogen content (normal).
Pics attached are indica at 1wk and same plant at 1mo. Sorry for black & white pic, was for Instagram. Germinated in distilled with a few drops of this at 80°, moved to soil at same temp, gave regular feedings. Seedling kept very close under 6500k 60W CFL. As you can see, it’s unbelievably large. The seeding is 8″ after 1wk, ~2ft after 1mo. Your mileage may vary.
I like that the solution doesn’t hang around in the soil as much as other brands (easier to flush), therefore I have FAR less Ph issues than I did using the “other leading brand”. Also, it doesn’t smell. Only thing is it’s not as concentrated as others I’ve used so you’ll use a little more.
I use this for that herb in soil, as well as jalapeno and strawberry in hydroponic. My jalapeno plants are huge now as well. Didn’t notice much difference on strawberries.”
“ This has been a savior for plants that were suffering from a heat wave. I give this to all of my container plants and anything that’s stressed: roses, herbs, a small plumeria, and more. I really don’t think of it as a fertilizer but more of a supplement to the granular organic fertilizers I use regularly. It’s especially great for container plants that lose their soil nutrients quickly, and a half-strength application each time you water will really help maintain the micronutrients they’d have in a larger space. If like me you have a plant in a container that’s too small, but it’s also not the right season for transplanting, this can really help bridge that gap and keep the plant healthy before it goes dormant.“
