What's everyone's take on TopMax?

40 posts in this topic

As per the title, what does everyone think of TopMax?  I'm using the Biobizz outdoor try-pack at the moment but I've only been using the fish mix and plan to use the bloom soon. However, I have a bottle of TopMax and was unsure whether or not to bother with the stuff.

Is it likely to complicate things or does it really help with flower production?  I'm Happy not to use it if it's really crap.:unsure:

I used it for one grow and didn’t notice any improvement in bud size. I stopped using it as a lot of folks were saying it badly effected taste.

But for me it's gone the other way seems to of improve terps and Iv been running same plants a while now I was on plant magic ot but wasn't really happy after few years so tried bio bizz...iv gone with the full range tho heaven,vera,algae top max fish,grow,bloom...I seem to be geting denser smellier healthier plants...there all pretty cheap apart from the heaven that's pricey...having the grow and fish is a bit pointless for most but I like to have both the fishmix is half fish half sugar beet molasses and the grow pure molasses I think...so I use fishmix in veg and then the grow in flower if need a top..it just means  got more options as have 10+ different strains  all feeding different and the additives really seem to help keep my stress plants&mothers in better shape ...be interesting to see what others think maybe it could be better with leaving the top max out... @Timbuds373 did you stop using it a few weeks before end? I just use it around 2-6week of 12/12 when rapid bud forming happening

I used it on a few grows many years ago, I didn't notice any increase in size or a change in the taste of the buds, so unless its been changed I wouldn't bother.

Dont rate the Topmax at all to be fair.

 

Fishmix is great...biobizz recommend using fishmix throughout the veg cycle then changing to grow through flower...i have never done this my self but thats what they recommend.

Hi @HEMPFRUIT the time I did use it, I used it to the end of flower. Thanks for sharing your helpful experience.

Interesting video. Sounds like a sales pitch though.  I was planning to use fish mix throughout flower instead of grow.  Jury's still out on the Topmax though.  I couldn't possibly stretch to Bioheaven - possibly good stuff but at that price forget it. :unsure:

That's good to know @Jimboo.  I didn't really want to unnecessarily complicate things anyway.  May I ask you: Do you see any advantages whn switching from fish mix to grow in the second week of flower or do you think sticking with fish mix all the way through will do just fine?

I do this, have done many times, sometimes I'm getting plants over 4oz per plant so it can't be that bad.

 

e2a, I don't rate topmax at all, or bio heaven for that matter. Just fishmix and some seaweed extract when young is all I use

Oh, and this... I guess simple is best...:yep:  Thanks for your help with my recent issues by the way mate.  It sorted things out big time.  Doubling the fish mix has really got things going.
