Grow,bloom,granules & bio-s are all I've needed/used so far and they look great. I also use the Plant magic soil supreme which only needs a little grow toward the end of veg. Also folk say flush for a couple of days but is not essential.
Before you use any of the above, have a look on here to see what dose other folk are using, i.e I only use 0.5ml/ltr of bio-silicon and use it up until the 2nd week flower.

Read a post from oltimer were he keeps telling peoeople inc PM+ that only use bio silicoin at 1ml per 2 litre and end on 3rd or 4th week of flower. So your spot on with your use of bio-silicon good advice I will be using it at that dose
Tried my grow on a few vegging plants and with only a small amount of grow 1ml per litre thay showed signs of over watering were the leaf tip droops this was first feed after a slight dry period is that normal or was the feed too strong.
Thanks guys for your help so far

house&garden bat special soil is a very heavily fertilised compost, so no feed of any sort should be needed until most of the chemicals have been used.
Why would you want to use a crude chemical fertiliser like Monopotassium phosphate with a pinch of epsom salts, it can be used to grow quite large buds, good for someone wanting to produce quantity rather than quality. I'm not sure anyone would want to smoke it if they had a choice.
If quantity is what you want you can buy it on ebay for a tenth the price of monster bloom. It would be an awful shame to mix it with an organic Ot fertilisers, only my opinion mind.

Switched from ionic to monster bloom and now pm+ trying to get quality over quantity and don't like the idea of chemicals at all. I bought epsom salts last month haven't needed to use it yet thought its only to be used during mg defficancy.
Any suggestions on what soil to use?

Personally I use PM+ Soil Supreme compost that only contains natural nutrients, again personally I would not call it organic because it uses peat, but other than that its as organic as it gets. Its more expensive than JAB + I have grown with both PM's. PM's has it for me on bud smoke quality, flavour and all round smokability, I smoke neat, so how bud burns is very important to me a few quid more on compost matters little to me, yields are on par, at the end of the day its down to the smoke you like best, both produce very good quality buds, given good genetics are being grown.
I was not being rude, but all some people are interested in is quantity, I was trying to explain, monster bloom is just Monopotassium phosphate with a pinch of epsom's mixed in, that is all it is, both are cheap to buy if that what you want, I was just trying to give you best advice what ever your choice was.
Grow shops just sell you product, its not about good advice, but mostly about profit, here at uk420 it is about growers, members who mainly provide for their own consumption, they try everything, while opinions will vary, what people say is what works well for them and provides them with quality smoke, if they say, all I need is xxx its the best, they mean it from personal experience..

I had a nute lock out on my last plant and now know it was down to my soil as I was probably feeding it whilst it didn't exhaust the allreay presant nutes. Only grow 4 plants each put in two weeks after eachother on a rotation so I have enough to get me by so if I lose a plant it is quite a disaster.
