I was hoping some of you seasoned hydro grows could give me some advice here.. I'm coming from soil and am a huge fan of the lucas formula (G.H.). GREAT result in soil. Simple and cheap. I also tried Rapid Start and really liked it. So I am leaning towards sticking to General Hydroponics. I was thinking to do the majority of their line this time... [Flora Micro+Grow+Bloom] + [CaliMagic, Armour Is, Diamond Nectar, Flora Blend, Liquid KoolBloom, Dry KoolBloom, Flora Kleen, Rapid Start]. >But now that I'm typing that..... thats a #[email protected]#[email protected]# load of bottles lol. (Not really that much of a deal breaker though.) >I know Flora Kleen is debated as necessary or not, but I figured I'd get a small bottle and use it once mid-way through and then maybe once before going to plain R.O. at the end. If I do go GH, would anyone recommend NOT using any certain nutes? As in you found they were either not useful, or had unpleasant drawbacks like harsh smoke or aftertaste or something along those lines? If I do not go GH (Which I am very much leaning towards) then I would consider the entire REMO Nutes line. It's fair priced, pharmaceutical grade ingredients, fairly simple line.. [Micro Grow Bloom] + [Velo Kelp, MagNiCal, Natures Candy, Astro Flower] I was reading on it, but there are only so many reviews I could find. >I also considered Hydrogaurd .. but I'm wondering if this is similar to the Armour Si from GH? >I also considered Superthrive .. but I'm wondering if this is similar to Rapid Start from GH? I was looking into adding a little hydrogen peroxide to the water to help keep it clean, but I'm a little confused with the whole Sterile vs Bennies deal. I understand the basics. So then would I not want to use h.g. if I am running any type of nutes that may have bennies?
