Buddha tree pk 9-18

20 posts in this topic

Seen a few posts saying its good stuff but also strong. Has anyone run it side by side though to see how it compares? Mate has been banging on about it. Didn't bother with this grow but he won't stop saying I should use it. He reckons it makes his buds more dense and more frosty. At the same time he hasn't run it side by side so dunno how he'd be able to make that claim. Thought it would be a lot of bollocks but seen a few others saying they use it. Do you notice any effect on the taste or just a good two week flush and its sweet as?

They have two technically  flower burst for last week veg and two weeks flower then the PK 9/18 flower burst is 2.9 /10/8 they say use both tbh seen people use it but not side by side .. you know pk is similar across manufacturers pretty much Buddhas is one of the more concentrated ones

Their PK 9/18 is very strong gear I had burned tips at 1/2 strength so recommend starting at 1/4 if you're gonna use it. 

I didn't do a side-by-side but I definitely noticed the densest buds I've ever seen with the Exodus cheese, but not really any frostier. 

I had to take them down a week early - even after a long dry and cure it tasted harsher than normal. Whether this was down to the PK or not having a longer flush or both I don't know, but the cheese was fed no higher than 1.3EC throughout flower. 

I decided I wouldn't bother with it again.

Yup I have...

Top stuff stumm, I did GSC from Cali Connection, one grow with and the next without...huge difference...

Buds were denser and heavier and yield higher using it, never noticed a difference in quality though..

It's very concentrated so go easy, 1/4 ml per ltr, max 1/2 ml per ltr...

I put it in first then top up with nutes to required strength, try to do it the other way round and strength goes off the scale.

0.25ml max as above its very concentrated so not as expensive as it looks.I used it when its first came out .

 

I used to use it once or twice per run in coco week 4 and 5 that's the lot if that maybe the just 4....personaly I wouldn't anything these days just A and B.

I used it a few years ago at 1/4 of the recommended dosage, I don't bother these days I just stick with base nutrients, universal traces and root stim in veg.

I only use a and b at the moment myself, sometimes use a rhizo. Going to use some liquid silicone stuff next in the hope of thickening branches. Mine aren't super thin and I tie them up these days but thicker branches wouldn't hurt. Just my mate going on about this, mug ain't even done a side by side lol . Half giving in to shut him up and the other half cause a few good reviews so I'm curious. I read increase yields of 40% and thought a load of bollocks lol

I've used both 9-18 b tree and pm platinum pk 9-18. Found in soil and coco the pm version seemed to work best. Never seen resin production like it.

Not because you used PK 13/14 mate. (IMO, Brilliant weed BTW) All you need is bloom and grow. The plants can't use these nutrients man. They use the stuff in the actual soil which feeds on the nutrients. Up to 50%
up your plants energy goes on feeding the rootzone bacteria. By making sure the bacteria is correct and benefical you can reduce this and make sure more of that energy is going to the actual plant.

There is tons of documented science on this. It's good reading man, Get out there and read it! lol

Unless anyone has ran a controlled enviroment with clones and fed some with and some without then we won't know for sure. Until then I'm going to assume it's fucking snake oil and unless you can show me proof I'm continuing with that line of thought. All the best growers on here used an A and B, Grow and bloom, sometimes a dash of calmag. All the additivies are crap some probably decrease the quality however as stated until someone does some decent tests in a controlled enviroment then we will never know.
