Can anyone recommend good alternatives to the above. With boost costing €280 and Rhizotonic costing €140 for 5L I can’t see myself continuously buying them if something else can give me the same results. 

Ionic PK boost is €35 for 5L for example.

Hesi Boost €65.

 

These are just a couple of examples I can get off the shelf locally. Store owners like to push Canna and Advanced Nutrients and I can’t tell if it’s for quality or purely because it’s profitable for them. 

 I picked up a canna 1L set to get started although I’ll need to top up on Veg Rhizo this week if I’m to continue using it.
Running these through a DWC setup.

Just to add I’m not looking to cheap out or sacrifice quality. If the general consensus is that Canna or AN will produce better quality bud then that’s what I’ll run

Rhizo I only use every day in the beginning, then they get a drop every 5-6 waterings after that, it seems to work excellent as foliar spray as well, I mix it 5-10ml to a litre of water and spray it on my clones and cutlings. 

Boost Accelerator.... I feel your pain... It's a good few quid if you have more than just one or two plants and who knows if it even does anything LOL

I’ll definitely reduce my Rhizo down to your dose and try that. Even though I’m using less than Canna state it still seems to empty quickly!

I set up a 4 bucket system with a res, so 5 total. 60ish litres. Whether I add more or less the plants seem to show no signs of stress. So less is definitely enough 😂

Same with the Cannazyme, I don't think it's needed at all unless you plan to reuse your Coco, I haven't bought any for this grow and I'm in week 8 with no sign of them missing it

In Australia we have a kelp product called Seasol. It’s not exactly the same as Canna Rhizo, but helps plants in most of the same ways. I have used it at half strength. Doesn’t effect ec value.

instead of canna rhizo I use Fox farms Kangaroots. My pattern of use is similar to what was mentioned earlier, early on and when transplanted mostly, and a pint last me a long time like this. I run a lot of Advanced Nutrients stuff but am not afraid to try alternatives and keep them if they work.
