Rebel you running 20/4 and could you give a rundown on your remo feeding schedule all the details please and thank you
Sure thing FN! I run 18/6 and going exactly by their schedule. I AM adding Natures Candy in veg.. Its optional it says but I am running it.

Thanks Rebel. What are your thoughts on feeding from day ten on are you going to follow per batum or back it off a bit to 1/4 strength until they develop. When you say exactly are you doing feed feed water? Thanks for the help I am getting close to using @REMO nutes bro 9 or so days away

Well I use Promix HP (soil less) so I feed from day 1 (when they pop out) and I feed everytime. So really the only thing I'm doing is using their dosing exactly.

When I start the new run I'll be going by their schedule with I believe is either a half or quarter dose of what I'm feeding now. I will try that since its my first time... When I was running AN I would start out at 5ml then be at 10ml by week 2. So I'm sure it will be the same with these.

Never a problem! I'm glad you pointed that out tho... My stoned ass.. Lol I am going exactly by their dosing but feeding from day 1 and every time.

How about hydroponics like DWC? Does these nutes perform there also? Checking out my local garden stores info about the nutrients I noticed that Nature's Candy includes carbohydrates that help the beneficial bacteria. Do any of these products include bennies already, such as Voodoo Juice with AN? I admit, I am teased to give it a go.

Also, so far all the products that have promised to keep the pH stable, have failed to a degree or another. Just fixed my AN nutrients pH in my DWC for autowhitewidows 3rd week feed from 5.5 back to 6.2 where it should be. Nutes been there only for 4 days. I used to have it worse with other nutrients and so naturally I would be interested if Remo might provide more reliable pH buffering.

I believe its designed to work in all kinds of medium. Including Hydro. Probably one of the closest nutes you can get that's "organic" and hydro compatible...

Bennies? Beneficial bacteria? I'm assuming... Well... Natures Candy feeds the herd but i believe unless you add myco yourself... There isn't bennies... Unless its in their gel... Idk

@RemoNutrients can you answer MGs question?

Yeah man. Beneficial bacteria AKA Bennies :biggrin: Sorry for being so unclear. I have really liked beneficial bacteria with DWC as a protection against root rot and other possible germs that tend to happen specially at summertime when it is harder to control the temperature of your reservoir.

yup they certainly would ;) And well i would imagine.

Curious why you would set it back to 6.2, or did you mean the other way around? as a tip always only change by 2.0ph at a time also as not to shock ;) As a buffer you can always add some silicon.
Or if you don't want to use that ,just a little extra calmag depending on the water type and ppms.
I believe they only have the gel. ;) I am leaning towards maybe to trying Remo in my rez's at some point @Rebel. :)

I've seen that term on site before I just assumed that's what I meant lol I refer to I as myco. I add that separately... I use Myco Madness by Humboldt Nutrients. :pass:

Yes they only have th gel. Correct. I would love to see what you do with Remo in your Rez brother!! :shooty: :pighug:

Not to hijack the thread but to answer to your question: I believe we have gone through this many times at this forum before and there are two camps about it. My experience has always been pretty much opposite what people have recommended here (5.8 pH) and some of the nutrient availability charts in pH do support my experience. AN Nutrients do set always with me to 6.2 and only after they start to go off their set value. I like to always run my garden at 6.2 pH at vegetative and have noticed occasional Ca -problems with some strains when going below 6.0. Every garden has different enviromental factors that goes to play together with the genetics of the plant, producing the phenotype. Only when we are at peak generative period, I make attempts to fluctuate the pH a little between 5.8 and 6.2 in order to ensure availibility of all essential elements for the plants to benefit from.

Take a look at this chart, for example:
http://www.epicgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/ph-nutrient-availability.jpg

See how well all the nutrients are represented @ 6.2? As I said before, there ofcourse are different experiences with all of our gardens but it has been my experience always that I get better results by going at high range of the pH.
