What are the Best Nutrients for Hydroponics?
I have the NL x Big Bud strain and I was wondering what would the best nutrients be for them? Right now, I'm starting to use some 7-9-5 Dyna Gro for vegatative state. Also wondering next time I flush it and use the new nutrients I get (whenever I make a choice) if that will cause any side effects or shock.
Please respond, thank you very much, I really appreciate it =D!!

general hydroponics make excellent nutes that are easy to use and very forgiving. it also has a variety of bloom booster that can be added to the existing nutes to boost numbers.
so I should just get their bloom
haha i dont know if itll do much buy it self lol. its a 3 part nute system. gro, micro, bloom
You don't need to buy all three solutions of GH. Eliminate the "Grow." You can use GH nutrients VERY successfuly by just using the Micro and the Bloom. Its a two to one ratio. For vegging 0-5-10. For flowering 0-8-16.
Vegging: Grow = 0 / Micro = 5ml per gallon / Bloom = 10ml per gallon.
Flowering: Grow = 0 / Micro = 8ml per gallon / Bloom = 16ml per gallon.
The above is called the "Lucas" formula. Developed by a very highly regarded cannabis guru named Lucas. (What else?) *lol*
I even color coded it for ya. *lol*
Also, Pure Blend Pro is simple to use and very good. You'll need to buy the grow, the bloom and a bottle of CalMag. Vegging is 15ml of Grow per gallon. Flowering is 15ml of Bloom per gallon and 5ml of CalMag per gallon.

Don't have any GH around right now, as I'm experimenting with SuperNatural, and they are about to flunk out.
And it wasn't Lucas but a group of growers and the guy called pH noted the difference in amounts of ammonium nitrogen versus nitrate nitrogen in each GH component, and it went from there. That was all on Usenet, Lucas just posted it on the web.
Whatever happened to Young Lucas?
And since you mention both chemical and organic nutes, do you have any notable differences to tell us about? Like growth rate, yield, odor and taste?
And 3pac, in hydro you can change nutrients whenever you wish, just run some plain 5.8 to flush and you're good.

Yeppers .... what I posted was the "Lucas Formula" and it works great. I switched over to PBP after smoking the same buds I was growing using GH, that were grown by a friend who swears by PBP. A WORLD of difference in taste.
Yeah, taste is the main reason to grow organic, but what about yield? The couple of organic crops that I've done were about 60 percent of the yield of chem crops. And I don't really notice that much difference in taste, while others I'm smoking with do.
I've often said that if I ever do another organic crop, I would try PBP, but there's too many chem products to try!
The proof is in the pudding...

Its a rigged question as to ones personal preference and what kind of setup you are using. Its like asking which kind of weed to grow. They all BASICLLY work the same. Be careful with AN if you use their nutes. They are way off on their feeding schedule; use as directed and your plants will fry.
