This isn’t literally a GH/DynaGro face off, but it is a test to see if a complete nutrient line from DynaGro can compete with the results I get from my GH products. I’ll be using three DynaGro products; their Bloom formula (3-12-6), Mag-pro (2-15-4) and Pro-Tekt (0-0-3) and using them in the ratios suggested in their feeding schedule. Currently I use 7 different products from GH when my plants are in flower and I really like the idea of simplifying the whole process. While those seven GH products perform extremely well and are reasonably priced ($70/grow), DynaGro would be half the price and half the bottles. I’ll be drawing a lot of comparisons between GH and DynaGro throughout this grow in regards to pH stability, salt build up, plant performance, plant health, etc.
I’ll be growing a strain that is legendary back in Ohio called Dumpster (for more info on Dumpster: http://en.seedfinder.eu/strain-info/..._Only_Strains/) which I’ve grown dozens of times with my GH line. I have lots of photos and detailed notes from previous grows, these will be the basis for a lot of my comparisons.
My setup is a DIY Ebb & Flow system with 6 inch rockwool cubes and a 600 watt HPS hortilux. I flood twice per day for 15 minutes. These plants were topped in veg and get supercropped until week 3 in flower. Let the contest begin!
***These plants were vegged with GH veg nutes.
EDIT: I should add that this experiment is for the blooming phase only and the six ladies below are going into their 1st full day of flower today. It's a 60 day strain.

That Purple gro turned out nicely, I hope to ee this one through to the end
I will be interested to see results.
You should have bought conoisseur by advanced nutes.
Its expensive but its worth it. Some of people are really getting a gram per watt with digital ballasts and this stuff. And with Purple kush. A strain that is unknown to get those results. He was getting 1.8 with out digital and now he is getting 2.2. You have to understand a gram per watt is differnt when you have 20 lights in one room. All that light adds up. Usually shows like that have alot of a.c and co2 to match the lights!
Awesome I'm definitely interested in this experiment! Good stuff Homebrewer - subbed and excited to see how Dyna-Gro does in comparison to your GH formula!

Guys, I appriciate you following along as this experiment is as much for me as it is for the community. But I would ask that you please keep your nutrient comments to yourself, unless your comments are specifically in regards to the Dyna-Gro products above and you're commenting because you've used them before. I guess comments about GH would be relevant as well.
Next update in 1 week, thanks!
what's up Homebrewer im subd for this. I was watching your last purple urkle grow also and that bud looked super dank. + Rep!
