The basic Advanced Nutrients combination. (Definitely must-haves)

Hello. I am going to start a journey with single autoflower and Mars Hydro TS600. Based on my research, I decided to buy my nutrients from Advanced Nutrients. Can we make a basic combination of the best products of this brand?

What's on my mind;
Micro-Blow-Grom Set
Carboload
Cal-Mag Extra
Overdrive
Big Bud
Voodoo Juice

Is there anything you want me to add or subtract? I didn't want to exaggerate because my light would be weak and the only plant, I just want to create a list of must-haves. Thanks in advance.

This exactly the combo I prefer with AN. One change would be switching from the 3 part base to the Sensi A & B two part. Get some more light and good luck!

Only maxigro and maxibloom are available in here.
Jack's and Megacrop need to come from USA which is very customs cost.

Anything else you want me to add besides GH Maxigro/Bloom? Advanced Nutrients or another brand. I would love to hear all of your recommendations, but unfortunately the options are limited. Both the variety of products are few and everything is very expensive.
The maxi line is good. I use it. They have a 'koolbloom' ripener too. I use it. Some don't. It's not needed and has very high p-k so you need to be careful when using it
You can use maxibloom from start to finish. Dont NEED maxigrow

There's nothing wrong with AN. Their base nutrients are the same price as GHE/Terra Aquatica. I don't know where to buy chitosan, triacontanol, ethephon for cheap, granted I haven't looked, but if it means I'd have to have 10kg sacks of the stuff I'll pass. Also I hate working with dry nutrients.




Online ordering is expensive as fuck. You can't get anything from the US shipped for less than 80$ and you have to pay customs fees and taxes, it would be A LOT more expensive than anything AN sells locally. I started with General hydroponics, not going back. I also tried megacrop, hated working with it, it's also not available anymore. Also I checked, Jack's doesn't ship to my country.

Americans need to realize that when someone outside US asks about Advanced Nutrients, it's not helpful at all to just say "durrr buy Jack's".
I think you missed @fardsnarps post about choosing comparable numbers and how would we know what is a good value in a foreign country?

@420LLIE , I'm a newbie grower, too-- I started growing during the start of the pandemic as a new hobby. I don't have a lot to add that hasn't already been said on this thread, but I share many of the same experiences. I started out using the AN line of products (sensi-grow A/B, bud candy, and big bud). Yes, I was absolutely that dude at my local hyrdo store who was impressed by the fancy marketing (admittedly, the illustrations are kinda cool, right?! :P ). I got pretty decent results, too! (see photo below). By my second grow I was getting tired of all the measuring and mixing. I noticed many others on this site recommended using Jacks or MaxiBloom; so, I switched to MaxiBloom. It's been great and I doubt I'll ever go back. Mixing is simple and I monitor concentration using a PPM meter.

This is the last grow where I used AN products. These were autoflowers and I was quite satisfied with the result.

Here is my current grow, using MaxiBloom. This is a White Widow photoperiod

If Maxigro isn't really necessary, I'll just do it with Maxibloom. There is already an economic crisis and inflation in my country. The price of everything is crazy so it means big profits for me.

Btw, how many auto plants does a 1 kg maxibloom package harvest on average? 2 maybe?

This is going to vary depending on your specific conditions. Pot size, strain, lights, medium, growth-stage, etc. will all have an effect on how much you will use.

Yes i know but i was asking on average. because growshop is a little far from my house. I do not make such purchases with an online order, cash payment makes you feel safer. I couldn't decide whether to buy the large or the small pack.

I think the last 2 kg bag of Maxibloom I bought lasted at least one grow for 4 medium/large photo plants being fed dtw twice per day during flower, there might have been some left.

I've never used more than a 3 part nutrient in my life. The only additives I've ever purchased for cannabis were some potassium sulfate, potassium silicate, and fulvic acid in powder form. I don't bother using them anymore as I never noticed any differences from feeding just a basic balanced nutrient from start to finish.

I'm currently using MaxiBloom one part with my indoor coco plants. They're healthy with no deficiencies, burnt tips, etc... Just healthy happy plants. You don't need a ton of bottles of stuff.

One part. Just add water and grow.

Yeah dude everyone on the forum praised this magic thing. they even praised it so much that I think I'll drink some of it myself after buying it, maybe it will help me too.

So what? LE isn't looking at your bank statements.
Something happened in my country 4-5 months ago. I read this on the grow forum site in my country. There are 3 known big grow shops in my country. Narcotics goes to one of them and asks for all customer data. Because most of the people who shop here grow cannabis, the police are aware of this. Based on the data received by the police, those who shop here are started to be followed, but only heavy and large orders following. For example, 1000w ballast, hps, grow tent etc. in one order. The police raided the house of these people at 6 o'clock in the morning. Many have been caught growing in their homes. The aforementioned grow market confirmed this, saying that they gave the information to the police out of necessity. After that day, everyone does their grow shopping by hand. I know it's ridiculous, but situations and methods are different in every country. That's why I'm going to shop by hand by going 450km. :D

I'm in the USA. The laws might be different in your country. Here if LE has a warrant to look at your bank statements you have bigger problems than growing a couple plants.

I am sure that we are maybe 20 years behind the USA in democracy, justice, technology and all other issues. I'm in Turkey. For 20 years a disgusting person has been ruling us and everything is going very badly.
