What’s your favorite nutrient line?

Nope, It's made by JR Peter's. No marketing schemes and flashy bottles. Powdered and simple to use, no bullshit. My plants have never looked better. I even use their nutrients for my 1/8th acre vegetable/herb garden drip lines.
Which mix do you use? The 5-11-26? What ratios do you run in veg and bloom?

GH is in business with bayer-monsato. Fuck using their shit.
GH falls under the Hawthorne Gardening which is owned by Scotts Miracle-Gro. The only business Scotts has with Bayer is that they are the exclusive distributor of RoundUp.

Scotts also owns Botanicare, Mother Earth, Sun Systems, Gavita, Titan Controls, Can Filters, and a bunch of other companies. All of those companies were acquired and have basically been left to run their business as they had with the same employee's. Those employees have nothing to do with Bayer. Boycotting companies just because they're owned by another company you think is the Big Bad Wolf only hurts the little guy because if sales go down they will lay off employees that are just like you and me trying to make a living and survive.

Scotts was also the biggest backer of the legalization efforts in New Jersey and New York. Dumping over $1 million into the successful effort.

Cannabis is big business. And big business is moving in. That will benefit growers by driving the cost of growing supplies down. People can hate all they want but Scotts is doing more for cannabis than many. They might be profit motivated but who isn't? Without deep pockets like Scotts. legalization efforts in many states would not have advanced as they have.

"The products we design and sell have one thing in common––they help people express themselves by gardening and growing plants. We understand that expression is deeply personal. Indeed, we know that some of our consumers use our products to grow cannabis for their personal enjoyment or for the plant’s medical benefits.

As the leading provider of nutrients, plant supplements, growing media, air filtration and lighting used for hydroponic and indoor growing, our company is unique in its ability to help people who choose to produce cannabis authorized under state-law."

I love Grow-More Seagrow. all purpose and flower and bloom. Contains the same Urea we drain in the morning. So some controversy over the whole organic thing. But pennies on the dollar and 14 years faithful.

My favorite doesn't really matter. All these branded nutrients basicaly contain the same things in slightly different amounts. Most have you overfeeding if you follow their feeding charts.

Here's what the plant likes.

Nitrogen (N)
Phosphorus (P)
Potassium (K)
Magnesium (Mg)
Calcium (Ca)
Sulfur (S)
Zinc (Zn)
Manganese (Mn)
Iron (Fe)
Boron (B)
Chlorine (Cl)
Cobalt (Co)
Copper (Cu)
Molybdenum (Mb)
Silicon (Si)
Nickel (Ni)
This is great info. Well said to the point but why not take it a step forward and provide an organic veg and bloom nuts that support these exact nutrients. You have gone this far? Thanks

Good question. But I have an answer.

I can provide all the plant needs with a simple dry nutrient when growing with salts.

Now as far as organic nutrients. Well I am switching over slowly to organic soil and nutrients but I won't be using any nutrient product. Other than building a decent soil with organic amendments I'll be using FPJ, SST, LAB, IMO, etc... All things that I brew and make myself. I'm done paying for dry or bottled nutrients.

It won't work for everyone but if you have a yard you can pretty much make everything you need to feed your plants. Collect your own microbes, make fertilizer from weeds, etc...

:peace:

Maybe Roundup ready cannabis seeds are a good thing right?
Where did that come from? You started with GH and now you've moved to RoundUp ready seeds.

Don't by GH products. But they have nothing to do with Bayer or the exclusive distribution agreement Scotts made with Monsanto years ago before GH was even purchased by Scotts.

GH makes better products than many of the smaller cannabis specific companies and their 12 bottles of overpriced water.

Good and all that but many don't have the time to devote. Trying to dial in a hobby of many that need my time. Therefore the search for organic nuts in simple bad assery easy spoon full nuts bi weekly to monthly continues. After seabird guano appears not available in pellet form as it was in the past next nut search continues. Jobe organics bulb bloom is in experiment with super grow plant habits and not yet finished testing positive now. Noting differences in plant grow, color, bud and frost results tweaks. No interest in becoming more involved in building raw soil. Actually enjoy the search for simple badassery gardaning easily managed dialed in repeatable with minor tweaks, I am finding less involved by humans the better plants like it. .... thanks

Look into Down To Earth.

They make organic liquid and dry blends.



I know people using just Alaska Fish that are growing trees. The problem with many of these organic bottled nutrients out there is they split everything up forcing you to buy a bunch of different bottles to get everything you need just like most other nutrient companies.
