What nutrients to use
Hi guys I'm on me second grow and having problems with the eco thrive. Don't think I've re amended enough after my last grow which is totally my fault but I did use recommended amount by eco thrive. I no it takes like 2 weeks for a top dress to start working so on my next grow I'm just going to use bottled nutrients in either soil or coco. I just wanted to no what people use and what would be recommended thanks
I use soil from my farm, it's more or less cow shit that's turned back to soil. All my nutrients are Bio Bizz, they are Calmag, Fishmix, Bio Grow, Bio Bloom and Top Max. That and Mosquito Dunks are all I use.
Iv been thinking about trying a grow using cow turd instead of bottled nutes, iv got cow shite on tap here so there's no much point paying for bottled nutes if the original brown sauce would do the job too 😆
In the corridors of power where the talks are in full swing
If you can't say it with flowers Then don't say anything
Bio Bizz nutes for soil. Grow, Bloom, Top Max.

@buster2704 hi bro
what size pots were u using btw? if in 40L /+ its much easier to get plant done without extra feeds needed. 30L is possible with some plants
It is possible to finish off crops in supersoil with liquid organic feeds when foods run out using something like bio bizz.
if u wanna save some money u can use tomato food btw
bottled feed industry is full of water.. 98% usually 😉
Its an industry im personally trying to move away from... i think u had the right idea before with soil amending but need time to perfect it thats all..
maybe do a liquid feed run like u say and then see how they compare and how like each.
Biobizz are good but wanna sell u bout 10 diff bottles, Old timer do an organic range which is decent and not so many bottles...
Dragonfly Earth medicine do a dry food u mix yourself into a brew (pricey but gud shit) as another alternative i'll chuck in there..
in the long run its worth pursuing your ideals i think, or u could be on the bottle for yrs and yrs and it all adds up 😉
But also it is a good thing to try diff things out til you settle on a style u like, whichever it may be !
good luck bro
Time to pop some more beans 😗
Off the bottle! I had this misconception that mixing dry nutrients was hard. I can't wait to see the results!
Thanks for all the replies I think I'm going to finish this one with the bio buzz nutes as most people have recommended it that I've spoke to about this problem
Also @macky I was toying with the idea of coco and cana nutes friend of mine has just finished a grow this exact same way and theirs no complaints at all so I think this is the method I'll try.
As for perfecting the mix with the dry ammendments to me after this had happened its all a bit of guess work really and think it'll take a long time to perfect as my first time round I had nutrient burn and now nutrient deficiency I followed what was recommended by eco thrive plus a little bit and still no good. I will have shit loads of dry ammendments left but suppose we all live and learn and you can't get it right from the start. Sure this years veg garden will be more then happy to try them out ha. But thanks for the replies and I'll definitely take them all into account thanks
Just ordered the 3 mini bottles of biobizz what someone recommended on my other post think it may have been @stootie. Just thinking if this works OK ill just keep the biobizz instead of spending more money on another range of products thanks again lads
I run a mix of used coco and perlite(from my indoor grow) and then mix in some compost and worm casing along with a bunch of other amendments if im doing outdoor but indoor i run Coco so its all bottled nutrients, As was discussed today on the grow guides you dont need the entire lineup to produce good smokable homegrown. Any 2 part system will generally be enough to get you through a run without issue, once you have nailed down that side of your grow then add the extras if you think they are worth the extra coin. Personally it has taken me a few years to nail down a list of additives and my base line and i have probably spent too much money on additives that don't do anything other than look pretty and waste your time mixing them in. But for me I use Canna Coco A+B as my base (will be moving over to Green Planet Dual Fuel next run for a changeup) and then most of the Green Planet line for additives - PK Spike, Massive Bloom, Vita Thrive, Cal mag(it was just the cheapest option any cal mag will do the job) Liquid weight and Rezin. Its a lot of additives but they all fit into my schedule where they need to and i know they work because i have used and trialed over multiple grows. But it gets expensive, so realistically if i wanted to do a basic run on the cheap i know a 2 part will do the job just fine, the extras are just like garnish on an already well cooked meal, they work but the dish would be fine without them if you get what i mean.
I feel like a, like a slice of butter... melting on top of a big-ol' pile of flapjacks... yeah.
@bubblehok thanks mate yeah I no exactly what you mean thanks for that you read all sorts of info on this and don't no what to add and what not too but you've hit the nail on the head their thanks mate
Im using the ecothrive soil for the first time and am wondering when do i start adding the charge or the tea. Im only on week 1 of veg but by the time I order n its delivered. So yea any info id be grateful 🙏
I just kind of winged it really lol the tea I started to add once the plants got a bit size too them maybe like 3 weeks into veg and I only used life cycle as a top dress not charge but i used this when flicking to flower as it takes 2 weeks or so for it to get into the soil so you don't have deficiencies later in flower but to be honest the tubs tell you how much to give and when so that helps alot. What I will say tho make sure when your done and re ammend you add what it tells you and make sure its measured properly as I thought mine was done correct but obviously its not lol
@drippyboi Hi Drippy, thanks for joining us man!! In coco, I would recommend Canna nuits mate. Canna A n B, some Cal/mag, and some pk 13/14, that works well. Check out our last episode of grow guides as thats what we covered pretty much, it might be helpful to you
