Yea i think its like growing shrooms in oatmeal ha ha
I use veg+ bloom I like it also I use and try many things. here’s a few all work well but veg +bloom is super clean and strong. I just ordered some mega crop to run against veg+bloom to see which one I prefer. Be careful you have to measure it out in grams. It holds ph well once you have it set I run it in a rdwc I only and root igniter and mammoth .
Thanks for the heads up
i think im going to go with hydro gardens chem gro formula (this will be measured by weight )
Ive used a bit of different things over the years.
Advanced nutes 3 part
Botanicare pureblend and cns17
Gh 3 part
And a few others but those where my main lines
But after years of giving the hydroponic nute companies way too much of my money i figured i wana know what MAJOR food producing greenhouses use .
None of them would ever pay for advanced nutes let alone gh 3 part (nasa approved or not)
They depend on their nutes to keep the farm alive so thats what im looking for now .
The last "botique " nutes im using till its gone is
RAW by npk its prefoming excellent but @70 for 2 lbs which i use about 40 grams per fill up doesnt last too long.
The chem grow is around 20 for 5 lbs
Which im not a cheap is best person but im trying to learn how to cut out unnecessary fluff nute bottles and water lol
Sorry about the rant
And thanks for stopping in hooha
It looks solid I just ordered the 25 lbs bag it’s missing a few things but no biggie. I just got some mega crop in the mail today I may run all three against each other to see which one does best.
I’ll try just about anything once if it good I’ll spend the money. Also most of the hydro powders like veg+bloom and chem gro all need to be measured by weight as they’re strong an a little goes a long way
Which did you order?
I got the 4-20 formula. For the money if nothing else I’ll use it in my garden in spring
do you still have to add cal nit to that stuff
Find my other thread opinions on chem gro 4-20-39.
Ttystikk lays out the recipe by weight.
Although im looking now to find the same blend as tty im going to have to askk him cause i cant find the one hes using ....yet
Also from what ttystikk said the 4-20-39 is like having the 5-11-26 with cal nit. Mag sul and mkp for a bloom feed.
I like the versatility of the mix he recommended
but since i cant find it yet i might have to try the 4-20 and cal nit and mag sul and hope the extra potassium doesnt hurt veg?
Did you get the other stuff.
The cal nit and mag sul?
No I have plenty of both for soil or hydro. I’ll use what I have and see how it works, plus I use my well water for years with my hydro setups.
Cool when you start running it let me know
I used veg+bloom and really liked it except for one main thing. If you use this and try to make crumble you will have horrible results. There is something in the nutes that does not let the product do its thing. I ran a side by side veg/bloom and gh Lucas formula and the gh stuff crumbled and the veg bloom didn’t. Same exact strains both hydro setups.
Received an email back from the chem gro people about using well water with their nutes all good news. Just in case anyone was interested
Well water here too 125ppm ph 7ish
Yah mine is close to 200 but it’s calcium so no big deal. I’ve gotten along with it well over the years.
Nice waiting on an email from hydro gardens
To see if i can find the blend ttystikk is using
And to see how bad shipping to ak will rape me lol
It cost me 35 bucks for a 25 lbs to Michigan. I seen the cal and such on there not bad for the amount you get.
