    Gone with the new shogun nutrient range additives an will definitely be using there feed when my duct pro runs out,i also have advanced nutrients grow micro bloom an overdrive an B-52. I bought those for a oxypot i have but ended with root rot due to the water being to warm, by the time i sorted it it was to late it had set in, so i try again next time round.

    My buddy just ran Mr Nice Critical Mass, and used both Resued Soil, and New. That's being the only differences. These were clones, and have been running for 1 year so we know that they should do.

    The Reused was greatly lacking in terpines/flavor, vs the new potting mix. Id say it hurt it by at least 30%. Never had this problem with new soil

    Never reused soil,i read on the bio-bizz website that there all mix an there light mix can b reused, me myself wouldn't even bother reusing soil, it's been hammered for months on end with nutrients, additives, all the salt build up i know it can be flushed but a 30% loss is not something you want happening.

    Im using DUTCH PRO A&B GROW AN BLOOM, for my additives i decided on a change an thought I'd give the new shogun nutrient range a go,WOW they have made such a noticeable change in the girls,i have been feeding them, shogun katana root start, shogun silicone, shogun cal-mag, shogun sumo boost,shogun pk 9/18 warrior, an also adding advanced nutrients B52,and i have advanced nutrients overdrive for when the time comes to pack that little bit extra into your buds,depending on strain can increase your yeilds by 30% an increase quality and taste. Some strains just increase the quality of the smoke. The plants have been on 12/12 for 4 weeks now it was 4 weeks on the 11/22/2016.they have gained alot more weight than usual at this point of the 12/12 light cycle when i use the dutch pro range,i plan on a total switch over to shogun nutrient range when my dutch pro runs out after this crop.

    That can vary.....you might want to dilute the result if you use a small volume.

    I used a pump to make a waterfall and made 25 gals at a time, but bubbling in
    a five gallon pot is good too.

    Sorry for the late reply.

    The Promix HP is high porosity and dries out probably faster than necessary.

    If you want to keep it simple ? And youre using chemical grow ?

    This what we do, but also remember fert recommendations are just that. Recommendations. Watch youre plants and learn their reactions, or non reaction.

    To keep it as simple as possible seek out some Promix BX, you need to add NOTHING to the soil if you do what we do.

    Then look into some

    Sun Bulb x Better Grow Orchid Fertilizer. These people have been in business since the 50s, are also endorsed by the American Orchid Society, and they only use the highest quality chemicals. And that means NO UREA NITROGEN.

    They have both Veg/Flowering formulas, and are available online, and are cheap IMHO.

    They are also 100% Complete Formulas, and this means this products also contain Magnesium. Which is the #1 deficiency for container grown plants, and MJ uses a lot of Magnesium. nd again the Mag is from a very Bioavailable source. They do not short change you on the quality, and source of the chemicals.

    For seedlings we mix the formulas together at a rate of.

    1 tsp Veg x 1 tsp Flower x 5 gallons water Feed each watering.

    As they get out of seedling stage 2 tsp veg x 1 tsp flower x 5 gallons water.

    Flowering is 2 tsp flower x 1 tsp Veg. x 5 gallons water.

    I use Fox Farm OF and Happy Frog mix with a little worm castings. 4 gallon pots 2600 watts MH or HPS (I can adjust lights from 300 watts to 2600) 8' x8' room. For nutrients I use the Advanced Nutrients Connosieur line, expensive but it works. When plants are exploding with energy growing in small pots (anything less than 15 gallons) they are prone to react to slighest imbalance of just about anything. I use RO water only and follow feeding schedule for nutes. I am old retired guy, first seed I planted was in 1966 in moms garden, (got busted). AN nutes cost me about $125 per grow,12 plants aprox 3 lbs perfect trimmmed buds plus per grow. I grow lower yield boutique strains, this crop is Laughing Buddah and Purple Ayahuasca. I got the seeds at Barneys Farm in Amsterdam last year. I grew out one seed from each strain and cloned enough for my grow. I have been in CA or OR so my grows have been fairly legal. Sounds crazy, but I have gotten some of the most amazing strains from clones I bought on Craigs List. View attachment 3853994 Some pics from one of my large rooms, an outdoor from 12 years ago and newer stuff. Downsized so I am now growing just for me and the wife.

    Yes. I find it drains better with about 20% large perlite added. And I only have to water from clone cutting or seed sprouting until week 3 of 12/12 by transplanting to a bigger pot every few weeks.

    Here is a clone I started right from cutting in it in a 16oz. party cup.

    When it was rooted well I transplanted up to a 1 gallon nursery pot.

    Deep well water only added and no ph adjustment needed with my water even though it is 8.0 ph and .3 EC

    The oyster shell in it works very well as a ph buffer.
