    Introduction/Mini Bio
    Budelee ,Hi everyone...well my standard style is using 600 watts of HID MH/HPS lighting..I am a coco grower using Cyco Platinum prewashed and buffered..i also grow in 2 gallon Geo Pots..For Nutrients i use the KISS method with GH Maxi Grow start to finish in various amounts as the N value is great enough for the full cycle,this is a Lucas Ratio/Formula and the cost is very cheap proving that great bud can be grown on a shoestring budget,i add GH cal mag and silica due to the media.
    For this test i have chosen Killer Kush as the strain and will be starting from seed.
    Plants will be on an 18/6 schedule from start to finish.I do HST my plants and hope to document how a foilar feed/treatment will help keep the plants from over stressing,allowing the Foliar Fed plant to grow faster and larger than the non treated plant.
    Thank You
    For stopping in and we all hope youll follow along​

    Hello friends! Thanks for having me budelee and Optic Foliar!

    I'm mostly an organic soil grower, but occasionally experiment with things outside the organic box. My current soil stock is organic: it's a base of Roots Organic plus about 1/3 Canna coco coir and a gazillion ammendments of about every thing imaginable lol. So all the nutrition is essentially in the soil already, but I like to play with additions to the water. I'll be doing AACT teas, plus occasional calmag via Humboldt Equilibrium, plus powdered organic silica, plus Real Growers Recharge, plus a dash of occasional EarthJuice Microblast, and maybe a couple treatments of House and Garden Roots Excelurator and later Mammoth P maybe. I don't have my liquids set in stone, I kinda play it by feel.

    My tent is a humble 2 feet by 4 feet by 5 feet tall. Standard ventilation: carbon can, 6" blower, and adjustable controller. LED lighting by a Mars Reflector 144 with 1x CFL for when I work and for pictures. Pots are Root Trapper II 3gallon.

    Guess that's about it for intro info. Strain will depend on when I get the kit in hand: I really want to test on either an Afghan Kush Ryder or a Industrial Plant CBD auto, just started a perfect pair of each! We'll see. Thanks again for having me along! :biggrin:

    Hello all,
    Thanks to AFN and OPTIC FOLIAR for the opportunity to test out this product.

    I'm just gonna throw this out there... I don't really have a set way of growing. I have 3 tents going all the time and I grow outdoors as well. I love to keep trying different things.. I'll be growing in promix in either 5 or 7gal airpots. Most likely these plants will be grown under 1000w HPS. Sometimes I move my plants from hps to led or vice versa... Still not positive what I'll be growing yet, too many to choose from...

    Thanks again for the opportunity to use this product
