    Can someone please give me the cut and dry low down of what is needed. Understand this is great stuff and affordable.

    Thanks!

    really depends on how you grow ?

    I grow in Peat and use
    Jack's Citrus FeED for veg and Jack's Aquagold Finisher for flower

    Happy Frogs is good soil and should hold up for most of the grow, there are several Jack's products that would work great to supplement towards the end

    I would suggest Jack's Acid Special

    Yes it is. I use general purpose and switch to bloom booster in bloom. I run an EC from .8 to 1.8 depending. I also add calmag plus. I use nothing else. I can pretty much measure quantities and be pretty close from just scoop measurements. I do check the ec though. I do pH the final product.

    They both lack sulfur, sulfur feeds the trics, you'd be amazed at the boost in quality if you add sulfur

    the Citrus has 4.9% sulfur and the Aquagold (which Jack's designed for MJ) has 9% sulfur

    Also very interested as well. I use Coco and RDWC. @RM3 is correct with sulfur.
    @RM3 would you say what your using would do well in my grow?
    Also do you use the jacks calcium ?
    I use Maxi dry and love it, but jacks is cheaper in bulk and isnt coloured.

    Have no idea ? never used coco and if I need Cal I use gypsum (Calcium Sulfate)
    IOW every thing i add besides an npk nute is some form of sulfur 8)

    If sulfur feeds the trichs, which cannabinoid is sulfur found in? If it enchances the smell which terp is it found in?

    I do agree that Jack's classic lacks enough sulfur and thus needs to be supplemented, but beyond that, how can you backup the claim that sulfur feeds the trichs?

    That wouldn't prove anything. The sulfur deficient plant would turn yellow and eventually die. Of course a sufficient level of sulfur will produce a healthier plant and thus a better product.

    Me and you grow in very different ways. When I don't add sulfur, the plant gets ~0 sulfur. I make my own hydro nutes from base salts. If i don't add any sulfur, there's none there.

    "1 gets sulfur one don't"

    That means one plant would die. No sulfur, no ferredoxin, non-working photosystem 1.

    well I don't know what to tell ya then ?

    Sulfur makes peppers hotter
    Sulfur makes oranges sweeter

    These things are well know

    Sulfur makes MJ more potent

    This is not so well known but never the less true as well

    Perhaps give one what you normally do and double the dose on the other one ?

    It seems like Howard Resh agrees with you on high sulfur levels (at least for tomatoes and peppers). I'm checking through the recipe list in HydroBuddy, and Howard Resh's tomato formula at maturity calls for 144ppm of S. By contrast, the University of Florida's Tomato "to termination" formula calls for 60ppm of S. Howard Resh's Pepper formula calls for a whopping 360ppm of S...

    But I don't grow peppers, I grow weed! In order for me to increase S to 360ppm, I'd have to decrease P and N, AND shoot K though the roof. My current mix has an S of around 55ppm.

    Well I also shoot K thru the roof because I mostly use Potassium Sulfate to increase sulfur levels.

    You may not always agree with me but I promise sulfur increases potency

    Hey RM3 what is the best way to just add sulfur? Would micronized Sulfur work? Is that water soluble?Thanks man.
