    any hydro nutrients will work, organics maybe less so since they can settle out if not constantly circulated, but they will work if you agitate your res enough. General Hydroponics 3-part is great, I don't like the single part nutrients, they growth was never as good. If you want an organic go with Botanicare line of products or Fox Farm, which is semi-organic.

    go ultimate top notch.... A.N. is the way... I dont know why so many people use General Hydro nutes or Botanicare, when Advanced is around, and is only maybe 10 bucks more..

    Some say that there is a down fall to using A.N. because there are so many things you need to fill the schedule, but you can pick and choose which ones you use. You can use the 3 part

    Well, maybe it's because AN nutes cost 8 times as much to buy, and don't work any better.

    But they DO have great hype! :mrgreen:

    Fox Farm - full set (except Beastie Bloomz)
    running at 1/3 strength in veg - building up to 1/2 strength before flower -
    1/2 strength at start of flower - and just a smidge more then 1/2 at end.

    AN nutes are not 8 times more.. i just looked up general hydro nutes they r 8.50 a qt, for each of the 3 bottles (grow bloom micro), and AN on the other hand, 9.00 for each of the 3 bottles... and the AN has a lot more to add to a grow then General or botanicare. And esp if you use tarantula and piranha, right there you have a good combo.. and so worth the extra maybe 10 bucks..

    I use BC nutes- the 3 part, Grow for veg, bloom for flower and boost for both, fantastic growth rate. you can almost see them growing. I guarantee, if you dont look at them for one day, the next day you can see the growth

    yea i lied, well i changed my formula. I went with the GH formula. I was getting lock outs and i added Grow and the kids exploded, WHICH by the way turned out to be ALLLLLL females. 3 NLxBB and a 3 Snow White and a whole mess of clones in a mixed Batch. Every time i cut her back she grows back HUGE.
