Anyone ever swap parts parts on a 3 part mix, Florabloom with Kindbloom?

Went looking for a 6 gal jug of Flora Bloom at the returned package store and found a 5 gal of Botanicare kindbloom for $17 and will be using that with the flora micro and grow.
Have add-in’s coming from all manufactures but never swapped a base nute.

So this will turn into a grow journal on if it fails, works out the same or does better. I think the botanicare kind bloom is better quality than the General Hydroponics
First pic, had to cut it down


10 day latter with the Botanicare/GH, coming out just the way I planned.

When it goes into the flower tent it will be under QB’s and better to see.

I’ll follow along here. I’ve been thinking of trying some new nutes that are a little cheaper. So far things are looking good I’d say!

You want to be very cautious mixing different nutrient lines. If you take a moment to think about it these companies blend their products to be used with their products. You will run into PH buffering issues and possible salts precipitating out of solution making them unavailable to the plants.

Been getting the 5/6 gal jugs of nutes for $5-$25, if I’m able to find a Florabloom I’ll buy it. If I find the other parts of the Kind trio I’d rather buy that brand.
