A couple of points of interest… I have another post about “General Hydroponics being sold to…? And I’m not kidding!”… In short General Hydroponics was sold to a company which is owned by Scott’s Miracle Grow, which is traced back to Monsanto… and in that post others brought up the same issue I am having with General Hydroponic’s pH Up & General Hydroponics’s pH Up not being the same quality that we have all come to expect of them over the years. Seriously do a search on Google for “General Hydroponics being sold to Monsanto” Big Buds Magazine has a huge article on how Scott’s Miracle Grow was found guilty in court for putting toxins in bird food, for putting toxic chemicals and things in things which labeling them on the ingredients list, and claiming things are in there that are not. It also brings out that Advance Nutrients who used to proudly admit they tested their product on cannabis, will not hang up the phone on you as they are owned by General Hydroponics. It also brings out that General Hydroponics is going to be working to be sold at low cost outlets such as Walmart and other discount stores, how they want to push towards GMO’s… and even on YouTube you can hear it yourself right from Advanced Nutrients… so you know I’m not joking here.
Why did I even find this information because I have two bottles of pH Down and one takes 5-ml to effect the same change the 2nd bottle takes 15-ml to effect the same change and I wanted to know if it was old, they changed the concentration or I had some other problem… Hence how I found out about General Hydroponics being sold to Monsanto. I called the company I deal with who also was unaware until another customer like me called to tell them and when they did the research to look they too found the problem and now more customers are calling to complain with problems with General Hydroponics they tell me, and at that point they are telling them the same thing I am telling you and recommending that those customers who call to complain to change to another company which they then help the customer to decide for themselves.
Just thought you might want to know… I do not use their 3-part fertilizer anymore… and I am getting away from their pH Down myself… but that is just me because I have taken the time to read up on all of this and I for one am outraged over this and what it means for us as a customer and feel others need to be equally informed since General Hydroponics like Scott’s Miracle Grow and Monsanto is fighting against cannabis.
