There is a relatively new member which asked if there was a way to start a poll which collects
what nutrients are people using and why...

I figured that I would post one up, because actually I'm kind of interested as well..


So, post a vote for what nutrient your currently using, and if you could please take a second to post why you use it.


Thanks,
:wave:

DynaGro Protekt
Jacks Hydro
Epsom (only for the Mg hungry)
CalNit
Tea (RO + AF EWC + MycoGrow soluble + Botanicare ZHO + Blackstrap Molasses)


Currently in my pantry but probably shelved for good:
GH 3 part
DM LL
DM Saturator
SSU
Botanicare CalMag

How did I end up with what I use today? I spent too much time at 'i c m a g'... but really, both DynaGro and Jacks are complete when it comes to micronutrients. DynaGro's base nute has all 16 elements while Jacks has 13 (14 when using with Protekt)

Once upon to use AN but a better and cheaper local brand was introduced to my local hydro store and I absolutely love the line. Instead of having a million products they have a hand full. Some day soon I plan to do a side by side :).

I use the whole fox farm line accept soil because I grow DWC and coco. I get pretty good results but I'm thinking about giving AN a try just to see if I notice a better yield or quality, basically I just wanna see what all the hype is about.

I guess I should of selected the mix option. My buddy was over yesterday during my rez change. He was like "Damn! How many different things do you add to your tank?" I responded "Eight at this stage." He said "Jesus Christ that's alot!" I said"That's not even all of it!" Then I showed him my 6 bottles of different products I use to spraying. After being shocked, he said "I think I am going to stick with soil." LOL!

Ya I know what you're saying, AN's complete line is 13 different products!!! LOL

So in this side by side nutrient testing I'm doing, I not only got to change 1 res with AN, but then change another using GH, and mixing up another 9 different products... :eek:

So what products do you use from the GH line zoomme??

I agree with it being too much. I only continue to do it because the nute recipe works so well.

Botanicare CNS17 line (grow, ripe, calmag) and GH Floralicious Plus as a supplement. Picked the CNS17 line for low cost and simplicity. Added Floralicious as a supplment because I'm doing DWC and thought it would be good for the roots.

I'm the only House and Garden so far. I wonder how many of the GH are down to people using the lucas formula?

Week 2 in flowering, H&G 2 part base, roots excelurator, multizyne, drip clean, AN Big Bud and Carbs, that makes it 7 different bottles, 8 with trace elements. 9 if I count a little bit of pH down. It's like a mad laboratory.

I also use Bud-xl by H&G in later flowering, it is supposed to remove the carbs from the leaves and put it in the buds. So this time I am adding AN carbs. Hehe...it's good fun :)

TiHspeed uses H & G.

I was using the gh trio but only to use up the grow. Now, just running Lucas.

I don't know, but the one time I tried it, I ended up with problem after problem, and then the suggestions in the forums only made things worse...

When all was said and done, I had some real nice rag weed home grown...
Never used it since...

Ever since, I've prefer using base + additives... :o


Edit:

well done on the poll dude

Shit, it was your idea, and a pretty good one too...

Just wish some of the old timers would step in here and post up their soups!! ;)
