Question for soilless / hydro growers, if you have time: what nutes do you use?

1. What nutes do you use in veg / flower?

2. What additives do you use in veg / flower?

Just wondering...

Thanks.

I use GH 3 part as my base, veg and flower in hydro. I also use Golden Nectar (Humic/flavic acid), Liquid Kool Bloom, Silica, and SNS 209.

I just change the mixture amounts depending on where I am in the growth process.

In a soilless / hydro grow (as specified in the original post), you use NO NUTRIENTS? Only H2O?

Soil definitely has nutes, but the original post asked about soilless / hydro grows, which have no nutes in and of themselves.

I'm in ProMix BX, soil-less medium

I use the GroTek line of feeds in both veg and flower http://www.grotek.net/ I eliminate the water soluables of Monster Bloom and Bloom Blaster as they mess with my ph. The VitaMix Plus is awesome on your seed starts.

I also add 1/2 tsp of MG 15-30-15 to every feed in veg and flower, but that's mostly about keeping my well water at proper ph without having to deal with up and down.

Seems like the better results you see is by those following the Lucas Formula http://lucasformula.com/ or close to it with , no matter what brand of nutes.They are using .

I also use the GH 3 part. I use the Lucas system sometimes, but find that I do better with a little grow added--otherwise, I run out of N before the plants are done. I also add Cal-Mag and have recently started using Kool-Bloom to see if it makes a difference, since one of the growers I respect recommended it. However, in my years of growing, I haven't really found any additives that I am too impressed with.

I learned a long time ago that the chelated salts in the mg will put my ph, after feed is added, to exactly where it should be. I see people say, "He's a miracle gro grower" as an insult, but that little 1/2 tsp every week or so doesn't do much to feed, but it sure makes my life easy, lol.

I use what I believe was/is Peters brand blue crystal........ ordered it off ebay a few years ago........ thought I was going to use it to grow....... didn't work though........ but it does work as a way to adjust my ph and get it down where I want it.

Dont grow hydro, but do grow soilless. Peat moss, perlite, and dolomite lime. Solely GH3 Lucas formula. Only additive I occasionally use is Pro-tekt to strengthen in veg.

I'm glad this thread got bumped because I have actually made a change. GroTek was getting harder and harder to get my hands on, so I just started a couple weeks ago using Neputune's Harvest Fish & Seaweed feeds. (Still with the addition of the 15-30-15) They have a feed schedule specific to mmj, so for now I'm following that until I see what adjustments need to be made. But so far, so good. I know it's a line that's been around for ages and that many use, so I'm not too worried there will be any issues unless I cause them, lol.

It's the same 3 basic products through veg and harvest, so it's a bit simpler program than the Grotek. Although, I have noticed the cats trying to get in the veg room much harder since I switched to fish food, lol.

Surf, the problem with Advanced Nutrients isn't the product, although I've read a few articles concerning their listing of ingredients that aren't really included in the bottle. The issue with AN is that the owner is a pedophile and is also being investigated for human trafficking. Those types, no matter how much you like their product, do not deserve your money.
