I've used organic dry amendments for quite some time now, I was wondering if any of you have any experience with immediately available water soluble liquid nutrients? for example (neptunes harvest, or roots organics) Thanks!

Bio bizz is a great organic line too. Roots works but has tons of pieces.

Great to know, I was wondering about the bio bizz line as well. I would love to find a journal with someone using some, using the search function on here has limitations.

I just received the Foop starter box. I hear nothing but good things about it. I’m using to finish my plants once I flip.

Never heard of Foop , checked them out seems promising! Npk seems so low on most of these organic lines too, I know having a bunch of separate inputs is good with organics. That orchid blend has a good bit of npk as well.

I've used and loved Neptune's harvest fish hydrolysate and Age Old Organics grow/bloom for a long time. I was also happy to find out those products tested below detectable limits for arsenic and cadmium in third party testing. I recommend looking up any product you're interested in before you buy, because of lot of the most popular liquid organic nutrients are loaded with heavy metals. https://apps1.cdfa.ca.gov/fertilizerproducts/

This is a growing problem in agriculture, and not just our hobby. I just saw this today: https://www.cnn.com/2021/02/04/health/baby-food-heavy-metal-toxins-wellness/index.html Allowing even a small amount of arsenic in cadmium allows it to accumulate over time to toxic levels-and note many of these brands are the most expensive organic brands of baby food...crazy!

Damn, that’s crazy.. I’ve been strongly considering trying jack’s in a promix dtw grow (seems somewhat simple) seeing a friends results with house & garden has me questioning myself about organics :/ lol

Look up any product you're interested in at that link. You'll be amazed at the arsenic and cadmium levels you see, in products that claim to be "heavy metal free." I can say from memory that the GH fertilizer salt products are all below detectable limits, like Maxibloom, Flora series, Floranova etc. You might be interested in this thread, it's an oldy but goody https://www.icmag.com/ic/showthread.php?t=191645 I think it's a good idea to get a grow or two using fertilizer salts under your belt before you try liquid organics, in my experience they can be more tricky with deficiencies cropping up-plus the salts are much cheaper.
