Questions What Nutrients do you use?
I am an organic soil grower. With so many nutrients on the market, it's a bit overwhelming. I'm still pretty new at this don't want to buy tons of different things that I'll use once and set on a shelf. I just want something that works.
What are your go to organic nutrients for veg and bloom?
Dr forest slow release amendments working great for the first time using them still got a few thing to mess about with and tweak but happy so far
For my soil grows, I start with super soil, top amend with worm castings about flower time, then feed with biocanna bio Flores if needed.
Honor is simply the morality of superior men.
Dr Forest Organic Dry amendments working really well in coco coir.
I have a few of Their products and blend Them to be as close to 3-2-1 for veg and 1-2-3 for flowering.
Molasses to pH the water between 6-7
The Green Man, Lyon writes, is “a sort of forest-god, an emblem of the birth-death-rebirth cycle of the natural year. He was worshipped in hope of good harvests, and guards the metaphysical gate between the material and immaterial worlds.”
@bangswitch2a I grow in soil and I use Bio Bizz nutrients, they're all organic too.
I use Fish Mix, Grow (either of those can be used in veg but I use Fish Mix) and for flower I switch to Grow, Bloom and Top Max. I also have a bottle of Bio Bizz Calmag, that's all I use, so that's 5 bottles...
When I started growing I just used Grow, Bloom and Top Max. You likely dont need the fish mix but I heard it's supposed to be better in veg then grow but I dont know. Im very happy with bio bizz but iv never used any other nutes so I cant really compair it with anything else.

If you can't say it with flowers Then don't say anything
Availability of products depends on what part of he world you are in. I use an organic soil mix made with my own compost and biochar, worm castings, and Down to Earth 4-4-4. I also feed Lactobacillus (LAB).
At the moment I am "cooking" some fresh soil with the KIS Organics nutrient pack to make an organic soil that will need only water. I should be ready in about 3 weeks or so.
I would encourage you to not go down the road of endless products marketed to cannabis growers because the plants really do not need hundreds of dollars of 12 different products, and there is more and more research showing that, even if the plants can take-up higher levels of nutrients, they do not produce more. As just one example, you might check out Cannabis Cultivation Science Episode 103: Phosphorus Research in Cannabis with Paul Cockson & Patrick Veazie. As an alternative to multiple expensive products, you can just use an organic liquid feed (such as fish Hhydrolysate) plus a good compost like worm castings. Be aware that good compost is hard to find (so learn to make your own) or purchase worm castings instead because worms are excellent at breaking down organics.
Hope that helps!

@im_sparky I've been looking at trying to make my own compost and hopefully super soil sometime soon. There is so much information out there. Just trying to find the right place to start.
We live in the upper Midwest USA. So it gets cold here in the winter. I want to start a worm farm this spring.
I have a freshwater fish tank and was wondering if I can use the water from there when I do a water change. Not sure if I'd have to filter it or amend it in some way. So much to learn, but it's a lot of fun!

Yes, that’s a version of aquaponics. There is an abundance of nutrients and microbes in the water that the plants love. Be careful, the water is usually very high in nitrates and needs to be diluted. I’m not sure of the dilution rate so you’ll need to research that.

I will be using cyco in a hydro set up. This well be my first run with this nute.
Easy gunao easy to use & cheep buy a few litres & it will last forever doesn’t go off add some seaweed & If your guano needs it some sulphate of potash witch you can buy from a local garden centre or online again cheep & lasts
you will want a high n guano for flower & a high p guano for flowering witch are abundant costs about £20 for a tub that will last years
it doesn’t work in coir or it would be more widely used imo.
