Cannabis Growing Q&A

I'm new to growing. Which Dakine 420 nutrients should I start with?

All of the various nutrient options can be overwhelming when you are a new grower. We recommend getting started with our core nutrient system, which is simply 3 parts; Base, Grow, and Bloom. Feed your plants Base throughout the grow cycle. Add Grow to your feeding schedule during the vegetative (veg) stage, and Bloom for flower stage. So you only use 2 at a time. All of our products are pH balanced so typically, no pH up or down are needed, and most of the time no CalMag is needed either. Basic instructions, along with recommended feeding schedule are printed on each Dakine 420 product label, however, if you ever need further instructions or advice, please don’t hesitate to email us or give us a call (541) 420-4645. Our Starter Kit is perfect for new growers, and contains enough Base, Grow, and Bloom to run a plant or two from start to finish.

Common Cannabis Growing Terms


NPK stands for Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K) and represents the proportion of each in plant nutrient products. For example: Dakine 420 Grow nutrient product has an NPK of 15-0-15 and thus contains 15% Nitrogen (N), 0% Phosphorus (P) and 15% Potassium (K) in addition to other beneficial ingredients.

Reservoir Size

This is the size, usually in gallons, of your feed system or nutrient mixing container. Reservoir size is used in our Feed Chart Calculator so you can mix your desired nutrients correctly. Our Feed Chart allows you to enter your reservoir size in Gallons or Liters.

Veg / Bloom

Veg or Veg Cycle refers to the vegetative state of your cannabis plant. Veg is followed by Bloom or Bloom Cycle (also referred to as "Flower") where your plant transitions into bud growth.
