Thanks for clarifying my initial thoughts. You are exactly right. I don’t use my grow store for much product advice because I always get a funny vibe there. They’re nice, but act like they have a disabled little brother chained in the basement lol.
Yep, my guys are pretty cool. They’ll all insist they don’t grow weed, can’t say I blame them where we’re at. But not all of them are real good at selling it. There’s a little him hawing, as the conversation continues you’d be surprised at the knowledge they have. Personally, I like that they don’t shove a particular product at me. They’ll tell me what they have that will provide what I’m looking for, and usually mention any differences in the options. Plus, I leave there with free stuff often.
Is this a " Home Work Assignment " LOL
Yes it is @garrigan62. Fill in my chart please. lol.
I didn’t mean it to sound that way. I just hate switching nutrients when I just got the GH schedule learning curve straitened out. Some of the nutrients have great names and art work on them. Don’t care about that I just want something that works well with my girls and I don’t have to re-mortgage the house to purchase them.
Sorry, I haven’t used GH or AN. Other than Rhino Skin for silica.
I’ll take an " F " on this one…lmao
and I know you didn’t but I just couldn’t help it… it was there so I went for it…lol
Ya no shit…I know just what you mean. That’s why I grow all organic…I’em a soil guy.
I use no nutrients in my grows, and I make my own soil. And I used those Nutrients for a long time so I can help you out there big time. Here…this is a link to my journal where i’m just starting to get my soil togetter…Please come and join in the fun…bunch of crazy people there…lmao I’ll tag you also…@HJL
Thanks @garrigan62. I’m set to watching. Might be a good idea to try just going with nutrient soil. Do you mix different soils for different stages? Like a soil for germination a soil for seedling etc. My grow store has all kinds of different soils and additives like worm castings, bat guano etc.
Has anyone used, I think it’s new, Promix CC?
I have not what does the cc stand for ?
I’ve used 4 different promix not that one but everyone I have tried worked well even some that feed
@Countryboyjvd1971 Coco Coir I think
PRO-MIX HPCC MYCORRHIZAE
HPCC MYCORRHIZAE – high porosity, chunk coir
When seeking the ideal balance between air porosity, drainage capacity and water retention, PRO-MIX HPCC is the solution growers select. With unique chunk coir reducing soil compaction and carefully selected peat moss, this formulation provides qualities promoting growth and offering a delicate, well-calculated control over the root zone. PRO-MIX HPCC provides growers what they need to optimize the quality of their hanging baskets, large containers and long-term crops.
Thanks fir the info
As im not a fan of coco but it sounds interesting
If you decide to try it tag me id be interested to know how well it works @HJL
Sure @Myfriendis410 and @Hogmaster Would be interested as well
I just saw a shipment come into my grow store. Was going to talk about it with my grow guy but I was in a bit of a hurry. Damn kids lol. Anyway I might pick some up and try it with my next grow. Which is really just a perpetual grow LOL. I’ve never used coco so if it’s a mix it might be interesting to try. @Countryboyjvd1971 @Hogmaster @Myfriendis410
Personally if I were going to start using any media I would choose Promix BX over coco. Not that I had much trouble with the medium but there are idiosyncrasies to the medium that you have to deal with.
I have been using the HP for a while now and really like it. @Countryboyjvd1971 I will keep you informed. Was thinking of trying to mix my own soil so has to not use any nutrients. Been following @garrigan62 link to mixing soil. Thought this hobby was just throw a seed in the dirt and that was it. There is just so much to learn and take in. LOL.
@Myfriendis410 I think this promix is a mix of coco, peat and other ingredients not just coco.
Hes your go to guy if you want to do that @HJL
He only phs his water
Im going to use his recipe myself with my summer outdoor grow im doing 10. Autos this year outdoors
What do tou think about them mixing the two products @Myfriendis410 ? And what do you think the ph range would be
I ph like soil now using the bx
There is much to learn if you use coco. Big learning curve lol not that it’s bad just different
