    I use Vegamatrix. It's not "100%" organic because there a couple percent of stabilizers there because it's a shelf stable product. It's nothing crazy that I really worry about. The big selling point is for those who use it legit as medicine because products grown with vegamatrix (or veganic in general) test in the parts per billion when it comes to heavy metals and that's important for patients.

    it will ALWAYS be better to cook your own nutes, but for those of us who got other shit going on I do like pre-bottled veganic nutrients.

    Are people actually getting results doing this? I don't really understand veganics - as there is always going to be microbial life dying in the soil, even if you are super sterile, there will always be some sort of life dying from the water or air put in.

    Kyle Kushman has been winning cups with his veganic approach. That seems to indicate high quality of his flowers.

    The point is not to use manures, or animal products, use plant based composts to feed. In fact the application of composts depends on raw material. Manures and are to be applied in a shallower layer vs plant based composts that can be applied heavier and thicker. Manure based fertilizers are know to cause sodic problems to soil when applied too heavily.

    Manures, proteins, animal products. are not nearly as broken down as items in a traditional hot compost pile, or a vermicompost pile. Vermicompost is also loaded with microbes, enzymes, and polysaccharides that make PK easier to absorb by plants.

    Lastly the smell, I do not like the smell of liquid fish products or blood meal. Outdoors its not so much a problem, indoors it is, mainly fish products, when I water 50-100 plants a day it smells terrible.

    I first obtained the OG Tea VSS as an Emerald Cup sample in 2016 that I used last year(2017). I liked it enough that I purchased a bag for use this season. It can work side by side with whatever nutrient regiment you're using. Last year I used it mixed in with FoxFarm Big Bloom on a Mendo Grapefruit Kush that just turned out terpy as all get-out.

    I am using it differently this year. I filled up a 5 gallon bucket of stinging nettle leaves and borage leaves and flowers and using a pair of garden sheers I cut everything up. Add pure water, put a lid on it and let it sit for two weeks in a cool dark place until all vegetable matter has rotten and sunk to the bottom. Strainer out the vegetable matter and bottle it.

    So at a rate of one cup of the "green nettle and borage gack" in my two gallon watering can I also add a teaspoon of VSS and fill the rest of the way with pure water and stir well. I let it sit about a half an hour for a reaction to take place and then water my plants with that. They perk and leaves point straight to the sky happy as shit every other watering when they get it. The guy at my local hydro shop can't keep it on the shelves and I'm not advertising. I went in there on four different occasions to pick some up on it's delivery date and if it wasn't being transfered to their sister store somebody bought em' up before I got there.

    It's doing something right.
