As you can see backyard its a touchy subject for sure. The main problem with AN, actually it has nothing to do with AN, the main problem is people. What happens is these growers( i'll use the term loosely) read all the hype see all the amazing pics and go running out and buy everything they think(I'll use the term loosely) will transpire their garden into this Wonder garden. They forget that nutrients are just a part of a complete set up that is controlled by them. When something goes wrong it becomes a blow to their ego's and instead of learning from their mistakes and admitting that maybe they aren't all that, they blame the products then bad mouth the product because of the pricing.

thanks sir. ganja, im dumbfounded on why everyone hates an i mean besides the price they seem like a great company just like cyco, ive been hear good things from them too, both expensive for their full line up both i want to try just because i have seen other people continue to run those products and each time they get it a bit more dialed in and everything,

Probably shouldn't post since i grow hydro and your question is having to do with a soil grow, but for anyone curious as to whether or not sensi bloom and sensi grow are really any easier to use compared to any other non ph perfect nutes i would say they definitely are. Of course you still need to follow the dosing protocol for your specific set up but when added correctly they are seriously some of the safest easiest nutes ive used. Knowing that my pH is always in the optimal range can really provide peace of mind not to mention less work checking reservoirs and adjusting them. Its pretty cool when no matter the pH of your starting water, weather it be 8.3 or 6.5, you know that once your nutes are added they will adjust it to the proper range. Not to mention they really do seem to be excellent nutrients from my experience with them and very affordable.

Also I would suggest not using additives, especially if your a new grower, theyre a lot like supplements, not really tested or proven, a lot of time just a bunch of hype and really have the ability to screw with your system. The best plants i have ever had were grown using a basic line up, save money for things that are really proven and matter, plus if you a hydro grower your res will stay much cleaner without a bunch of crap being dumped in there, and clean is always better, also over the years ive learned that simple is almost always better.

thanks doc, when i do recieve my order it contains just the reg sensi grow and bloom a&b b52 voodoo big bud and bud candy, and overdrive ithink too and im using that line up mostly in coco so i gotta ghave a lil additives. not much tho but i do want to also try a simple hydro set up which i might dow ith the ph perfect line up.

Right on, I never really got into growing in anything other than hydro, from what i remember coco is called a soil-less medium, well im not sure if thats the right term, but from what i "think i know" its got either very little or no nutrients at all so I suppose it would be treated very similar to the medium used in hydroponics, which is of course water or RO water which theoretically has no nutrients giving the grower absolute control. And by the way AN's Sensi grow and Sensi bloom for hydroponics has AN's "pH perfect technology," so I would think what you ordered would to, as a matter of fact do they even have different products for soil than for hydro or are the same products intended for both?
06-12-2012, 06:34 PM
not sure if they ahve a specific line for soil or hydro but i think the ph perfect was intended more for hydro to help keep a steady ph, a few ppl i know that use it said all they have to do is ph the water to fill it back up and they refill everyweek with nute water, he has it around 5.7 5.8. it might a have a thing for hydro soil transplanting/cutting stuff liekthat on bottle the one i have the chart has hydro on big chart and soil use on the bottle, but very week solutions. just got technafloras kit, flushing right now because i ran out of almost all th enutes adnd i didnt go to the same store, but it was good while it lasted, what type of hydro set up you got?

Ive done flood and drain, aeroponics, and DWC, im currently implementing DWC bubble buckets for my plants and aeroponics for my clones.

It can actually be used for all mediums, non-recovery systems benifet best by the non-ph systems.

For about $100 bucks the table and medium can be set up and if you are under a 400 this set up has produces 400g+. No timers, no tubing, nothing extra, once a day you fill the rubbermaid tray and drain back ito the res, ready for tommorrow.
What ya think?
