    Thanks Homebrewer. I just ran my first cycle on Dyna Gro Grow in promix. 4 ml Grow 2 ml Protekt and half that in veg all with RO water. Excellent results, very impressive. I still flushed for two weeks. I can only give up one thing at a time. I will do half flush, half no flush next time to see the difference.

    Holy shit, 60pages. Can anyone give me a quick summary of the results? I just bought a bottle of Dyna-Gro bloom so I guess I'll see first hand but curious to see how others made out with it. Been using AN 3 part my entire growing career but want to see if I'm missing out on anything from another company.

    Big thanks to the OP of this thread.

    What is Lucas here people saying it just confused what it is

    homebrewer Well-Known Member

    'Lucas' is referring to a popular feeding schedule where the GH 3-part is used. It's something like 8 bloom and 16 Micro, I personally think it's a great way to burn the sh*t out of your plants. Google it for more info.

    Been growing in soil....now I will give hydro a run,seems to save 17 days of flower time,Dyna grow here I come.

    homebrewer Well-Known Member

    Flowering in hydro wont save much time, if any, over soil/dirt. Maybe 5 days on a 10 week strain?

    fandango Well-Known Member

    Thanks for the reply,
    Funny that all our stains always take 77 days or more?than I read about hydro guys clipping the buds down in 60 days?
    We have indica,hybrid,and sativa growing in soil.

    Ps....sure did enjoy the past 2 days reading your dyna grow series...good job there

    Really? I thought you saved the time in veg. Or is that 10 week of flower?

    homebrewer Well-Known Member

    It does speed up veg and will save a few days on the flower side too.

    Holy smokes.. took most of the day to read the entire thread.. but incredibly useful to a knowledge-thirsty newbie like me. Thank you homebrewer for all this work!

    Sadly for me, I'm still unclear about the feeding dosages. The chart below shows a dosage schedule that most people have found to be too aggressive, did I understand that correctly? It also recommends dosage changes but you achieve great results by using the same ratio throughout, right?


    The setup I'm working with is dtw with coco for medium. How should I be rationing out the ingredients in veg and flowering stages? The switching between PPMs & EC and then the ml/g measurements throughout the thread confused me, thanks in advance for your help!

    homebrewer Well-Known Member

    Foliage Pro from start to finish is all you'll need. Protekt is not needed but it's beneficial. I'd start with their recommend maintenance dose (1/2 tsp/gal?) and tweak from there.

    I've been running dynagro with great results in coco. I use 2ml per gal of protekt. 3ml calmag and 4ml of dynagro grow. I feed this veg through flower. Comes out to about 550ppm with my tap being about 110 of that. I seem to have issues with it building up overtime and always do a flush after about 10 weeks of veg and I have to flush after about 4 weeks of flower depending on strain. How Could I alter my feeding so a flush during flower wouldn't be necessary? Any input would be appreciated. Also, I'd like to thank home brewer for guiding me towards dynagro products. It's all I've ever used.

    Thanks man! I was actually wrong about the medium - it's not coco, it is Sunshine #4. Does that change your recommendation at all? Why Foliage Pro and not Grow?

    I use grow to they entire flowering cycle with no issue only happy plant but i start to add some bc grow 1-3-6 as boost .I found that the taste become more sweet .maybe cause the high p of dynagro .I use 1ml per litter of dyna grow and I boost my ppm to 900 with bc grow 1-3-6 for the last 4 week taste way better . I was thinking maybe is the amoniac in the n of dyna gro or the p ?

    homebrewer Well-Known Member

    Yep! My recommendation is still the same but you can't go wring with either grow or foliage pro. In my experience, FP is a better performer but by only a slight margin.
