Chemical ferts with Organic ferts!
I thought you couldnt use chemical ferts in the soil with organic ferts cause the chemical ferts are high in salts which kill off the soil organisms (Microherd) and these are needed to make the organic ferts work.
So why am i seeing chemical ferts like ionics and vitalink that seem to be able to be used with organic ferts. Says not chemical salts but mineral salts and plant extracts with organic additives and although not organic it seems to work on similar principles by keeping the soil organisms (microherd) alive.
What gives here as i thought you couldnt cross the two for a soil grow, am i missing somthing or am i seeing it wrong somewhere.
I run biobizz but been given some freebies from a hydro company, namely 'Vitalink Earth Bloom' and 'Vitalink Fulvic Acid'. So can i add these to the soil along with my biobizz or do i stick with just one or the other (obviously i aint gona ditch the biobizz, freaking awsome wicked ferts).
Everything about my grow is either organic or at the least chemical free.
So how about it can i use both Vitalink and Biobizz together?
Ionics seems the same, although it is a chemical fert it seems to also support organic ferts and amendments??? Peace
if you bucket grow it usually isnt a problem its only when you have beds and are feeding your soils who in turn feed your plants when it can be a huge disaster i have found
Yer thats what im talking about growing in soil, only way for me. I always feed my soil which feeds my plants but ionics is a chemical fert like vitalink but they got seaweed extract and benificial soil bacteria for promoting the soil organism growth and other organic soil stuff in the nute line, even the grow and bloom of vitalink is chemical but got stuff for the soil organisms to eat to feed the plant in turn so i just dont get it!
Are they safe to use with organic ferts???
I know dynagrow is chemical and not suitable for organic ferts in the soil but Ionics and Vitalink seem to suggest adding organic ferts and supplements, even stuff to promote a healthy soil life and many different soil organisms??
I just dont understand this part. Peace
To help with the situation the lables say uses mineral salts not harsh chemical salts? I guess this is pro soil organisms and dont harm them like normal chemical ferts?
you're going to be fine using both of them, just dont go overboard on the synthetic nutrients.
From what Ive read, chemmical ferts will kill off microbes, but not all at once. It will take some time....a few seasons... to kill them off completely.
Ah this might explain a few things like the organic supplements with the chemical ferts.
By the way they say they do not use synthetic salts but mineral salts, anyone know the difference? Seems mineral salts are better than synthetic ferts! Peace
