    in most cases
    if your not over fertilizing theres no need to flush ever

    even at the end

    From my understanding base nutes can't be made much cheaper than most the dry guys are selling thier mix. The money saver is really in buying your own biostims and such. I order through alibaba a lot. Thats where I get my Chitosan from. Its like 1000x cheaper than Bud Factor X. Im working with a supplier now to make an enzyme powder simialr to NPKs new one to save some money, its like $50 for 8oz at the hydro store. I use NPK silica which is by far the best Ive used, they sell biogenic silica on alibaba and was thinking of running a side by side. they look REALLY similar. I also think alot of these new silica brands are the "biogenic" silica washed and filtered then sold at concentrate.

    I thought about the master blend cause i saw that guy on youtube doing the Kratky method of hydroponics with it and it looked great.

    Just got my fertilizers a few days ago

    I got the 4-20-39 hemp formula lol

    Also got the strawberry formula 8-12-32 for veg

    Just switched a couple of systems to the 4-20
    So well see how they do

    So far i like how nice and CLEAR the nutes are just barely colors the water

    Ill check it out

    Although i will say since i switched it out for the RAW nutes i think the root growth has slowed but i cant be positive.

    I know i was trimming roots everyday and since i switched 3 or 4 days ago they havent gotten long enough to want to trim?

    So im wondering if its because of the bio stimulants in the raw nutrients ie the kelp, humic, etc

    Are you adding anything eles like more cal nitrate ,epsoms? Or is it all in one complete?

    GreenScreenOG Member

    Ive never tried root trimming intersting, I just let them grow.
    Yea its a 3 part fertilizer, so i add in the cal nitrate and epson salts
    Im not adding calmag but I have hard water which already has plenty of mag.
    I got the exact mix on mg thread be curious on your thoughts!
