    I didnt realize there was a difference between gold n silver. Glad I have the gold then!
    Quick question, ill rephrase what im working with first.

    House and Garden Soil A + B, Root Excelurator, Drip Clean, Top Booster(not using top yet)

    CALiMAGic (3/4 strength )

    I recently got Dyna Gro protek and foliage pro, should I atleast use the protekt?

    I also have MicrobeLife Hydroponics Nourish-L, Photosynthesis Plus, Root dip\Foliar Spray, fruit and yield enhancer sp*

    I am going to buy some neem oil to mix with the protekt I hear its a good foliar protection spray.

    What kind of soil are you working with? Is it hot out of the bag or inert?

    In my personal experience everytime I've used ocean forest and happy frog, their always hot with my nutrients regime. I always had to dial my shit down tremendously.

    Where are you getting this from? Seems I remember reading a thread (can't remember where) where someone examined Roots under a microscope and couldn't find any living organisms. This individual might have even tried to culture it. I'll see if I can find the reference again.

    I've seen Primordial Solutions place a Roots Excel sample under their microscope at a trade show and it was very alive. That was the old formula as well. You have to add water to activate it also.

    Anybody else having problems acquiring bud XL? I have been told that house and garden has either gone bust or has been bought out by an American firm and is now busy filling the states with their product, not sure how true this is but i for 1 am not fucking happy!!! I had awesome results in a new grow space last crop and wanted to try my best at doing the same thing again using the same nutes and strain to see if it was a 1 off or if I can repeat my success but can't get hold of bud XL. If i'm to have problems getting the rest of their nutes they can fuck off i'm not changing again just to change back it's just to expensive.

    H&G was purchased by the American distribution and is setting up the factory right now in the USA. Shops are creating these untrue rumors so that people will buy buy buy right now, all they want is the $$. I am told that inventory rationing has occurred so there is enough to go around to all of the shops. You can call the H&G office and they will tell you whats up. I've been using H&G for over 10 years so I feel you.

    Better get your nutrients friends. Their flying off the shelves here in northern cali. Seems they've been shut down for 2 months and are moving to Nevada. Some are saying 7 more months of this shit. Atleast get the Aqua Flakes. Having a hard time finding more. I'm loading up, and now theses fuckers are price gouging.....

    I glad I have a couple gallons of it. Might need to start up my coco grow. Been loving no-till growing lately.

    isakpeter New Member

    I've been using house and garden for about 6 months and find it easy to use and the plants look perfect. i use the cocos line with a 20%coco 80%perlite mix for substrate.

    ya the old roots excel use to be great! i have no fucking ideal why they changed it when it was working so good. Oh well fuck it i have found Pure essentials black label ROOT ENHANCE works better then anything right now on the market. i have rapid start and bio-root to and both those work great to. my favorite combo is root enhance and canna rhizo as foliar. u will have white wizard furry roots busting out the jiffy pots very quickly. check this link if u have not already seen. its a great thread about all the rooting products with pics showing how well this shit works.
