Default First feeding of the seedlings

Well its time for the seedlings to get that 1st feeding and here's my plan, let me know if you think I'm making it properly. I'm going to use liquid Miracle-Gro N=12 P=4 K=8 they recommend 1Tsp per gallon of water for indoor plants and I'd rather error on the weak side with this first feeding. I'm thinking 1/4Tsp per gallon of water any opinions on my plan would be most welcome.

That sounds great. I feed my seedlings at 1/2 the recommended strength once a week.

'It's time doesn't tell us the maturity, like 3½ weeks, 4 weeks etc. I use Nirvana @2ml per (1) liter of water at around 4 weeks and that's all because I plant outdoors at 5 weeks with a cloche. Hope that helps

simmran1 & MissS, thanks for the quick replies the seedlings are just over 4weeks so its time for them to get a tiny fertilizer boost. I just wanted to make sure the ratio would help and not hurt by being to strong. Thanks again!
