not a bad nute but it aint very concentrated ya use a lot more nute than say canna nutes
apart from that it does a good job with not bad tasting weed end product
I'll dust this thread off as there doesn't seem to be too many PH hydro growers when I was looking for info before trying them. so here's what I think...
I'm on my second run with PM using nft , they seem to be just over half the strength of any hydro nutes I've used before and being round about the same price per litre they work out at around nearly twice the price
I wonder why they have made a decision to make them this weak as they seem to be a good product and whilst growing your own supply makes such good sense economically for most of us less well off folks the running costs of growing are quite important.
Having said that I really like this product so far, it seems to take a bit longer for the ph to stabilize when you throw in a new mix, it seems comes down slowly over 36/48 hours and then stay pretty steady as the tank is emptied by the plants, this caught me out but now I know to wait a bit longer I can get the ph spot on.
I'm using the hard water, my waters ec is 0.5, but I haven't bothered with the flush I just ran with a weak solution for a week but I think I might try it as my plants seem to love their other stuff.
Its almost impossible to be objective when trying to evaluate the overall effects of using a new product , even if you keep everything the same there's still variables like the temperature , relative humidity, human error
But I am impressed with the lovely resinous lushness of the buds early on in the grow. They look very healthy and when the boost goes in it seems to make a visible difference , much more than pk 13/14....well that's how it seems to me anyway
The weed taste is nice , I have had some jarred for a few weeks and its definitely on a par with other good nutes when used properly.
I'm sticking to the grow schedule they give you as much as I can and I'll only top a solution up twice before I'll drain right down and make up a brand new tank.
Yeah I like 'em
and I'm going to keep going with them and try to get them working as best I can, and try to use them in the most economical way possible ( more top ups if it has no adverse effect? ) .....oh, and try the flush too.
I haven't posted for a while so hi to anyone who thought I'd dropped off the edge of the planet
, good to see the board alive and healthy
