I do not use it, but I hear Jack’s 321 is a big hit! I do use something similar and I love it!

Still new to it all I use the fox farms trio. Only on my second grow but I think it works pretty good.

What’s that if I may ask?

To OP. I am using dyna gro nutes currently and have no complaints at all. Simple, effective. But as I run out of the bloom formula I am entertaining a switch. Just to see something else.

I have used Fox farm trio and still do but have switched to using Jacks. Jacks is somewhat easier to use as it stays constant through out the grow;; what amounts you give whereas fox you need to add other supplements as the grow continues. just my 2 cents. happy growing :bat: :crazy_face:

Does it smell when you use Jack’s 321, I am looking for fertilizer for out door plants, live in the woods and don’t want animals in it. In my tent I use Stonington Blend Organic Plant Food, with lobster, kelp and worm castings 5-2-4 for veg. They get every thing they need. For flowering I use Coast on Maine fish bone Meal, 5-13-0 ( 18% calicium) also worm castings. It is kind of stinky when I water, so I can’t use it out side because of critters. @funkyfresh @Holmes

I’m using Jack’s: no odor. Dry supplements added to water then to plants. The neat thing is you use the same formula/ratio through the entire grow. You also start at full strength even with seedlings.

Right now I’m using most of the Earthjuice line but I also have Armor Si and General hydroponics Bio-Bud. Its worked ok for me so far but I’ll probably be switching fairly soon just not sure to what. Only really switching because the Earthjuice line seems to cost me a bit I just have to narrow down the options and try to time it right. I also use Humic/fulvic acid and Mycorrhizae to. Also I plan to switch to super-soil soon to cut down on how much nutes I have to feed my girls.

I’ve used fox farms, roots organic, and Jack’s 321. They all work well. Jack’s has been the simplest to use though.

The first step to determine is - do you intend to grow organically?

I have only grown organically (although in my first grow I used MiracleGro - sacre’ bleau!!!) :upside_down_face:

Now I only use Roots Organics, and Nectar for the Gods, & Fish Sht.

"Build a Soil "craft blend dry fertilizer. Top dressing as I am doing no-till. Green manure ,from cover crops also. I have get my worm castings from two 45gallon trashcans I converted by drilling holes all over. Works great.I have used DTE in the past when I used to make supersoil. I liked the DTE line of products,and available locally.

SL out.
