    Hi all, I will be starting a grow testing out this nutrient and giving feedback. Anyone using it yet ? Thoughts ? I've been a Maxi user for some time and like what I've read so far.

    I just ordered some on their website for only shipping with their promotion.

    Looks like amino acid chealated nutrients are supposed to be very effective.

    I have been having calcium deficiencies lately from my softening well water. Maybe the 6% chealated calcium will help.

    I too ordered the sample and should be here today. I have a pro way of mixing dry nutes and will get a pictorial up on it. I have two pre teen AK-48s in solos ready to go. My tap runs from 50-80 ppm , I'm also trying out Royal gold basement mix for the first time over FFOF. Going to run two plants and Scrog vs the one plant I normally do. Hoping to cut down on the time it takes to fill the screen and get to flower sooner.

    My nute lineup right now is GH Maxibloom/grow, ArmorSi, Rapid start, floro+, Calimagic.
    Since I'm a smaller grower I can do full runs with samples from my Hydro store. So far I've ran H&G, Cyco, Mills, Primortial Soulutions.
    If I can run Mega Crop without all the extra adds it will be my new go to ! I'll keep everyone posted .

    First impressions so far are great. SC dilutes fully in room temp water vs having to mix Maxi in hot tap water. Also the PH is spot on at 5.8 so no ph up and down. The one hiccup is the feed chart on the site calls for 2 grams per gallon for young plants. Doing this I'm getting 750 PPMs - 70 PPM tap water, Chart says 181.9998 so that's confusing. If this can do what Maxi can do with sups and adds I will be putting in a bigger order.

    Good news that it dilutes easily. Not sure what the number from the chart represents.

    Mine should be in the mailbox today.

    I use a stir bar and stir plate to mix, Maxi even with hot water always had some white particles left. Mega looks like instant coffee lol

    Have a look, some brands sell their micros in both a hard and soft water version.

    I would love to experiment more with salt based fertilizers. Shipping liquid-based ferts here in the amounts required for even a modest 1 pound yield is nuts expensive. Some brands are concentrated and then you get things like Botanicare that uses a shitload of product, most of it being water.

    I can get bottled nutes shipped cheap in gallons and I have only been using pure Blend Pro Grow.

    But the longer I do this and the faster and better my plants grow I am seeing a need for specific nutrients more and more.

    I have added agricultural lime to my soil mix at at about half the recomended amount to account for the .2 ec left in my well water.

    That should take care of the calcium deficiency.

    I am really spoiled by bottled nutes.

    Mega crop touts that its a primary, secondary, micros along with the additives and supplements. Some company's outside of selling water sell there base nutes cheap but the rest is hella expensive. Look up the cost for roots excel or amino treatment from house and garden.

    Even though Maxibloom had mag cal my tap water is only 50 PPM so I had to always add/buy mag cal. So far using Mega its the first time I didn't have to adjust the PH when mixing up the reservoir.

    I have two pre teens that are going to get nothing but Mega for the whole grow to see if it can do what I hope it can do. Replace my current lineup.

    For water added bottled nutes Botanicare kind is a great system.

    The base bottle is just calcium nitrate and the rest of the NPK and micros are in the Grow and bloom bottles.

    You can just use Grow or bloom full cycle by customizing the base calcium nitrate ratio.

    And it has seaweed extract included.

    This hybrid kind of fertilizer seems to be the new thing in gardening.

    But I am not sure I want to add everything every time.

    I never adjust ph with soft to medium water regardless of nute mix in buffered potting mix.

    Runoff stays consistent at about 6.5 to 7 regardless of what I put in.

    The extra limed pots stay closer to 7. Out of the bag ocean forest always 6.3-6.5 and promix Hp was always about 6.0-6.2 for me for ph.

    I am more concerned with salt buildup with big plants in little pots. My last og Kush x Trainwreck gave 7 oz of big dense nugs in a 3 gallon (really 2.5) pot.

    I don't know what I have done to increase results. Same nutes and pots and soil and everything.

    And like you say. I never needed more calcium when my well water showed 150 ppm. At 100 fast growing plants are calcium deficient. Slower ones it sneaks up.

    But not mag and only iron after some time so I really just need calcium.

    For now. Lol.

    Over the last few years I've accumulated and tried a lot of nutrient's. My Natural top faves are Primordial solutions "have there whole line" and Earth juice. For simplicity Maxibloom up to 7 grams a gallon have been killing it "with adds" for the past few years.

    I'm a small grower now days and most liquid nutes will go bad on me. I only grow one or two plants a year in a 2x2

    I guess that makes me a medium grower. I run 12 plants max with up to 8 in flower staggered about 10 days apart for harvests.

    Bout a pound per month. :-)

    Well a little more than that but I had to say it. :-)

    Got my package from mega crop today. Nice trial for $1.77 shipping cost.

    I want to say I am a strong believer in sticking with the same system. I have been doing things the same way for over 2 years now.

    When things went bad it was easier to troubleshoot and find the issue. If I was using new stuff I was unfamiliar with I might have had a much harder time.

    Same way for me with the dry stuff ! I am playing around with the coco though just to see if I like it better than soil.
