General Organics vs General Hydroponics
General Organics GO Box on the left, General Hydroponics Flora series on the right. At 4 wk growth 1 wk flower, Flora is taller by 7 inches.
The root system for the Flora series was more developed than in the organic system.
What I'm really interested in is blind testing the final product. I want to know myself if the difference is apparent from the buds. The chemical based line has the edge on growth, but will the organic taste better?
Fingers crossed the waterfarms keep things going, have to head out Wed for a few days, going to fill them up and hope all goes well.
hey leonardo i would be willing to bet if you made a beneficial microbe tea and ran it on the organic line you would see a major boost in root production and overall health and vigour too. they are easy and cheap to make

Good idea 2easy, I want to finish this one plain and see what happens, but as soon as it's done I want to start another. With and without compost tea sounds like an excellent trial.
You will always get bigger and more using synthetics VS organics. When you use synthetic fertilizer (flora, etc) the fertilizers are already in the final form that the plants use, no conversion necessary. When you use organic ferts, bacteria must change the fertilizer into a usable form before the plant can take it up. That is the difference. I prefer fert that is already in the form plants use.

GreenThumb, I agree with you that chemicals supply the nutrients in a more available form than organics, and I'm not surprised that the chemical plant is larger. What I want to know, is how much larger, and if there is a noticeable difference in the harvested buds.
what strain are you working with?
i have tried GO in a waterfarm, and it didnt perform as well as it does in a brewed soil feeding. IMO
the stretch would be a concern to me, when it comes to getting results in a VS.
suppose that could change later when it comes down to it and seeing the final results.
I would have to disagree. I out-yield a few friends who use chem ferts.
