    What's your favorite nutrient line?

    I've used fox farms in the past and currently using Technaflora. Though I like Technaflora I have to add from 5 different bottles. I'm wondering if there is a 2 or 3 part system the made of quality nutes. Whatcha using and do you absolutely love it and why???

    Botanicare pure line. It’s just noble. Very ph safe. Tons of everything in it. Humid acid. Just add calmag and that’s your 3 part. I’ve also used fox farms. Flora trio. Maxi line. And dabbled into mixing my own salts. If I could get botanicare I would be using it. Heard great things about the sn17 line.


      I'm in coco so using GH Flora trio with reliable, easily controlled results. I think I started nute burn and lockout the same day. Took me 3 days to figure out that my coir pH was too high at 6.2 so after I lowered to 5.5 to 5.8 range they recovered in a couple days and have been going slow but strong growth ever since. I'm 6 weeks in on most likely a 12 week flower with massive numbers of buds to feed. 300 watts actual 11" over them with a high PAR coverage across 2.5ft x 4ft space and they are loving it! 4 or 5 more weeks to fatten up. About mid May I think' just as the temp hits the roof. Can't grow without an ac pumping into your space. Mid August I can pop 3 seeds then clone the toppings from them and flower out 6 to harvest by Christmas and start another. Two crops per year from August to May is a good cycle for this area especially because I am in a cabinet on a sun porch where it easily hits 100+ days to 75 or 80 nites. Won't fight that battle. I'm hijacking your post PL so I'm clear...

        GH Flora trio is a simple 3-part system that does a good job growing cannabis.
        I ended up switching over to dry nutes because of the volume of nutes I was going through.
        I've been running Jacks 3-2-1 for2 years now.
        The only amendments I add are PowerSi during veg and Tribus bennies throughout the run.

          I stick to FF Trio just because I know it works for me. I’ve had the Flora Trio on my shelf for almost a year Bc GWE recommended it but I can’t get myself to give it a try. Everytime I try something else I end up thinking I screwed that grow by not sticking with FF. I’m sure they all are fine and it’s probably just me


            In the past it was Fox Farm but in some cases it brought my PH level a bit too high. Now for the last few years I'm using Advanced Nutrients, My PH level doesn't fluctuate with AN. So yes I'm happy with their product especially their Big Bud for my girls colas.

              I was looking at the Advanced Nutrients line up. Seemed like it's pretty good stuff.

              So far I'm happy with it.

            I use Canna products. A bit pricey, but consistent results. Just follow their nute schedule.


              Fox Farm soil and dry amendments. Way smoother smoke than any grown using nutes and water only other than adding amendments a few times.

                I wanted to try that one but to expense to ship. Using earth dust from green sunshine company. Very happy but a bit expensive as well.

              GH Flora Trio + Cali + Koolbloom + Hydroguard

              There is nowhere to buy the stuff where I live so all ordered from 3000 km away which makes it tough to experiment. SO far its working well but the whole nutrient game isn't my thing tbh i just follow the GH FLora Trio nutrient schedule and don't really deviate from it much.

                You can get the trio and the koolbloom in dry form. They’re called maxi grow and bloom. And dry koolbloom. Way cheaper because you don’t pay for all that water shipping across the world

              Howdy PLreef, I use (and prefer) the General Hydroponics line of dry nutriments, MaxiGrow and MaxiBloom along with the GH supplement line. I have gotten good yields. both in quantity and quality with them. I follow the GH nutriment feeding schedule (RDWC) and the only problems that I've had can be attributed to My own mistakes.

                I use Aurora Soul. It's a hydro version of their organic Buddha grow line. I've had good results with it so I've stuck with it since the beginning. I haven't used any others so I can't offer comparisons. The only thing pushing me to change has been Hydrofarm's distribution problems that started last year.

                  GP3 for me - Green Planet nutrition trio with their PROcal. $15 a liter each. Easy to follow feed schedule - obviously for photos but is easily adaptable to autoflowers - another thing I like is after adding to water pH is close to where one wants it to be - so not much buffering needed.

                    I only grow autoflowers as well - and no I give them full strength nutes. But I don't feed with nutes every time - I feed like this - nutes/tea blend or molasses/plain water.

                    What soil do you use? I'm using Coast of Maine Stonington blend. It's kinda like FFOF but organic and has nutes in it. They get used up during veg. I really don't need nutes during veg other than some cal/mag

                    I can’t remember the one I used first but I think it was made by Dutch Nutrients. It worked pretty well but I switched to GH Flora based on the GWE recommendations.GH has been working well for me but just recently I saw something on the GWE site that suggested it is a bit harsh. I’ll try to find a link to the source - did anyone else see it? Seemed strange that the site often refers to GH in what seems a positive light but the recent mention was the opposite. Curious if I missed something.
