thank you uncle ben and others that have helped me grow massive tasty fruitful plants at a fraction of the cost.. a few years ago i fell into the hype of so many nutrient companys. i spent 800 bucks on nutrients to grow 15 plants. yes the results were good but fuck 800 bucks !!! since i have read 1000s of posts on here on how to grow for less. what i have learned is that environment, growing skillz, lighting, and environment have more effect on a plants outcome then a bunch of overpriced nutes. i have often asked myself if pot was all of the sudden legal would a commercial farmer use any of the shit found in a grow shop ? hell no. it would put them out of business before they got started.could you imagine what it would cost to fertilize 50 acres of hemp with advanced nutrients or house and garden ???
heres what 5 bucks worth of nutrients looks like on a single plant. fucker pulled 6 oz of tasty yum
and here is one of six colas from that same plant. notice how green the fan leaves are uncle ben ? thanks again
so people quit bashing people that are trying to save you money and learn how plants thrive without spendinga fortune...
So what kind of nutes do you use? You can't show beautiful results like that without describing how you got them! ;D
i use roots organic soil with alot of perlite. about 50/50. dynamite advanced all purpose select timed released fertilizer mixed into the soil. in addition i use some cheap stuff i got from home depot called vf11 ( $ 16 a gallon ). 300 ppm worth per water .i use r/o water because where i live i have extremely hard water and it would just kill my plants. the addition of vf11 seems to keep things super healthy throughout the grow. from time to time i add some grow storm as i see fit. its made by flair form. its expensive but i dont use much. it has humic, fulvic, and sea weed. i have done grows without the grow storm and my patients say the plants that get a bit of the grow storm say it tastes and smokes better so i use it for them. thats it other then providing adequate lighting and keeping the environment rock steady. co2 is at 1200, room temp varies between 80 and 82 and humidity is at 50 percent. couldnt be easier... the real key to success is keeping them fan leaves happy. thats where the majic happens. i never put a plant into flower unless i have lots of healthy fan leaves...
