    I'm about to purchased a new collection of nutes in the next few days and I was hoping anyone here could put me in the right direction to improve yield and taste.

    I've always just used canna AnB, growtek cal mag, canna pk13/14, canna boost and AN overdrive in the last 6 years.

    I love BioBizz nutes, my flower nutes are Biobizz Bloom and Topmax, Sweet raw and Cal/mag

    if you cant get fire from following the directions on those nutes.... gonna have to try new genetics, improved grow space or habits.
    pk is stupid though, stop that and your weed will instantly improve in quality. with less leafy cabbage though

    The best nutes are the ones with the coolest label on the bottle. True story!

    Nectar for the gods. Herculean harvest, aphrodites extraction and bloom khaos. These are only supplements though. I run about half of their line. Amazing stuff, its like liquid super soil, pre digested and mostly immediately plant available but leaves food for the soil behind as well. Calcium based to promote strong healthy bones, or buds? Yeah, though some of the products look like chocolate milk, i highly advise against drinking them.

    I just use beastie bloomz (0-50-30) at full strength from week 1 flower until finish.

    there is no "BEST" some strains and methods work well/better with some system/strains.

    what might be good for his GDP, might not be good for your blue dream: <~~example only

    and some work better in different growing mediums coco/pro-mix whatever.

    that's what you are the gardener, has to figure out on the fly, make these adjustments or add/try something new.

    if you are trying something new, don't use the whole system, pick one or two and see how they do this run, and look at the results. then maybe next run. use it, or don't if you didn't like the results.

    this is how you get people growing just one strain for a very long time, to amazing heights. they know/tired everything down to the last minute of each run.

    Nute's are Nute's, they all come from the same thing. Feeding the correct ratios of what the plants need is what you should be after.

    Personally I think the GH 3-part is the best (for liquid nutes) because of both cost and flexibility. You will need Epsom Salt and CalMag too but only in veg. I have 3 different formulas I use depending on stage of growth.

    Just add Terpinator and Bud XL

    beastie is just mono potassium phosphate with some micronutrients added and marked up 1000%
    Save your money.
    This is all you need:

    "Vita Grow offers a three-part formula that is used differently than most three-part formulas. All of the micro-nutrients are in the Super Micro formula part A. The Super Fast formula is the Nitrogen and Calcium. The Giant Bloom formula is the Phosphorus and Potassium.

    When plants are in a vegetative state the Super Micro and Super Grow recipe is used. If you want a plant to be pushed into bloom, the Giant Bloom formula is added to the Super Micro and Super Grow recipe. By separating the formulas this way the grower can increase or decrease nitrogen (Super Grow) or phosphorus (Giant Bloom) as the plants demand without interfering with the micro-nutrients (Super Micro). This is how the professional greenhouse growers mix and match elements and compound for each stage of plant growth."


    I am in no way affiliated with this company. I am just providing the source of the fertilizer that I have found to be all that I need.

    Take a piss in the grow medium once a week for big stanky budz. Just kidding.

    The three numbers... 20-40-25 for example...

    The 1st number 20 in this case, always stands for nitrogen.

    The 2nd number, 40 stands for phosphorus

    The 3rd number 25 stands for potassium

    If your vegging you want a high nitrogen. If your flowering you want higher phosphorus. Potassium is good for all around plant health and also keeps plants strong giving them a better chance to fight off disease and stress.

    Hope this helps u better understand nutes buddy!

    Good luck!

    Not much Mg. You'll have to supplement with Epsom. You may need to supplement with CalMag when you lower Nitrogen as well as the part B is the only one that has any.

    xtsho Well-Known Member

    Look at part A. 2% magnesium. Part A is used throughout the entire grow as is part B which is calcium nitrate and provides all the calcium needed. I've been growing in coco with these nutes for over a decade without any issues. I do add epsom salts sparingly so that might be preventing issues.

    You seem to have a good understanding of plant nutrient requirements. I've been using these nutes/bulk chemical salts for a long time. I've used them in soil, coco, flood/drain, dwc, all with good results. Never added anything other than epsom salt and fulvic acid.
    If you're going to grow with chemical salts you need nothing more than what I'm using
    My next grow after the next one is going to be a coco organic experiment with nothing but natural feeding.

    VitaGrow is so easy. Part A and B for Veg. Add part C for bloom. Done.

    I didn't run the numbers so I wasn't sure if Calmag would be needed or not when you lower the Nitrogen for flower. Your source water could have a good amount of Mg or Ca or both as well but for all I know you could be using RO. Mind sharing what ratio you use in veg and flower?
