I like your style. I have 40 different bottles and bags of nutrients/additives sitting here I have never used!
Maybe you could email different companies for samples before you sink a lot of money into nutes and then find out you dont
care for them, they are not your style, they dont work....etc.
WELCOME!!

XOXO

@Ladiesinthecloset Welcome to AFN. To get someone’s attention put the at-mark @ in front of their AFN name like I did for you. @archie gemmill will be tagging you with some important information about using AFN.

I have used several brands of nutrients: DynaGro, House & Garden, General Hydroponics, Canna, Advanced Nutrients and most recently GreenLeaf Nutrients. When I use a nutrient line I use the entire line and that line only. They are designed to work together by the vendor who spends (hundreds of) thousands of dollars with the best minds to develop the line to grow cannabis better than anyone else. It is a huge competition with millions at stake. It is important that you understand Liebig's Law of the Minimums to understand why it is important to only use one line at a time. The goal is to keep the nutrients in balance. I have grown good crops with all of the brands I tried. So why choose one over another; for me it is price. I am a cheap skate and GreenLeaf wins that battle hands down. I just completed a 6 plant grow with GreenLeaf for $15.30 compared to over $200.00 with House & Garden. It is cheaper than even DynaGro which is fair priced. There are two additives I recommend and use: Mammoth P in all of my grows and Botanicare HydroGuard in my DWC. In a side by side I did with Mammoth P yields were indeed 15%+ better with the Mammoth P. The HydroGuard cleared up a nasty root rot problem I had in a DWC. It saved the crop. I would not do DWC without it. I also use Mykos inoculant in my rock wool block system.

I have a basics thread about Deep Water Culture you may find helpful here:

Thank you for the great advice. I'm cheap as well.

I have Fox Farms soluble trio, Cana A&B and Advanced Nutirents A&B. I feel like the solubale trio is best all around.
