    i was looking for some new nutes that i could see a difference with.

    last grows ive used canna flores (NPK 2-2-4) with blackstrap molasses. when i stopped using molasses i noticed the difference. it didnt look like the canna flores was doing very much.

    ive heard Dr.hornbys big bud is quite good and SOUNDS like it will make a visual difference.

    ive just googled the product and there are pictures with different NPK ratios - i thought there was just one....... the NPK's were 0-2-4 (from a US site) and 0-1-4 from a UK site. is there a way of telling which bottle has which NPK?

    also, if any1 has used this product, can you tell me the feeding guide lines that the back of the bottle gives. ive just read on the website i was about to order from:

    "Use in weeks 2 to 4 in addition to the flowering feed. 5ml to 1ltr"

    what? i have to use it in 2nd and 4th week of flowering? i was planning on using it through the whole flowering period. 5ml - 1ltr? wtf?

    on the canna flores guide lines it says something stupid like, for every 1000 littres of water, add 100ml of nutes...... most people arnt gonna be using 1000 littres of water to feed a few plants. obviously i did the math and worked it out but the guide lines were stupid.

    so yeah.... any input on big bud nutes?

    thanks

    i use advanced nutrients and bio bizz veg and bloom and just added hammerhead to the mix the powder is http://www.hydrohobby.co.uk/product/dr_hornby_big_bud_powder/

    i got the small pot and i've been using it for 6 months + and given some to friends and such and still have a fair bit left. as for a measuring spoon just weigh out .5 of a gram and use an appropriate spoon, i use a small coffee spoon with a line drawn on it!

    right ok, well ill forget it then,lol. powder is more expensive than i wanted to spend really. plus cant get it from my usual site where i am buying lighting etc and cant use paypal.

    if the liquid is gonna be dissapointing then ill have a look around. maybe at biobizz or somethin.

    cheers for the help

    ha,

    well i just noticed that its 130 grams of powder for £20. the 1 L bottle is £14.

    so 130 g's is 4.64 oz for £20 which im guessing here is about $40 (im not sure of the exchange rate atm)

    ahh ok, i can see the powder now. the other site u gave me was 20quid.

    ill think about it and see what every1 else thinks about the product. i may even go with something else, its just that i heard that big bud was quite good. only from reading things on here.

    whats a kanny hike? a trek?

    if thats what u mean then, well... there is a hydro shop near me but they have got to be lazy stoners. they shut at 4pm and i dont finish work till 5 at the earliest and there is only 1 grow shop near my work which is about 40mins away but going straight through manchester in rush hour traffic isnt the smartest thing to do. its just easier and cheaper to order online, unles of course i am getting alot of stuff like last time.

    can u recommend any other products? i need big yield!!! lol

    edit: does that site allow me to pay with paypal? saves me signing up... :p

    hahaha if you don't want to sign up your best off just ringing and doing the order on the phone, believe it or not its actually safer than over the net. yeah a kanny hike is a trek lol

    other products i would whole heartedly recommend... the advanced nutrients line overdrive will swell your shit like nowt else as long as your not bothered about it having to be organic youll need a clearing solution ( final phase )to take the shit out at the end otherwise itll taste in your ganj man these nutes ont come cheap but a bottle will last you a long time.

    overdrive lookin around £14 and the final phase £12

    what nutes are you using for veg and bloom?

    thats the thing. im only doing this last 1 big grow to get rid of all the seeds i have and to make some money. hopefully use up the nutes i have already lying around and some other shit.

    so i only want a small bottle for 1 grow of say..... 5 - 40 or so plants, maybe more but i bet all of them wont be female... so probably half of that.

    im not bothered about organic - means i dont have to flush. ill have to look into using organic with the canna nutes i already have.

    just something simple that i can use every feed that will make my buds bigger for a reasonable price and not too much of it.

    edit: was only going to use water and blackstrap molasses (after week or so of growth) and the flowering i have is canna flores. i dont really want any veg nutes unless they make HUGE different in growth and strength. just some strong bloom nutes.

    you will have to flush using non organic dude, id roll with overdrive you don't necessarily have to flush with a solution you could do just water but you'd need to do it for a good week +. big bud and overdrive ontop of your canna stuff will see you with mountains of bud. your lookin at around £30 depending on where you get shit from but get it from the same place and the postage wont double. for the cost of under a Q its well worth it n hell if you dont want the shit after flog it on ebay
