    Question Question: Miracle-Gro "Bloom Booster"

    My outdoors have just begun their first week in the flowering stage. I bought some Miracle Gro Bloom Booster Flower Food for them, the blue stuff you mix in your water. On the side it shows you that it contains alot of Nitroger, Phosphate, Potash and all sorts of other junk thats good for plants. I know this stuff is supposed to work well on almost any plant- "annual and perennial flowers and plants" whatever that means. Just wondering if this is also good for my plants or should I not even use it?:smokin3:

    miracle grow products--all of them--are crap.
    They are harsh chem's that don't have everything a plant needs.
    Almost anything else is better.
    I suggest using organic nute's. Go to a nursery and look for a nutrient that is higher in P(phosphorus) than N(nitrogen) or K(potassium). P is the middle number. It may say something like 2-8-4, which is what Fox Farms Tiger Bloom has.

    If your plants were starving, then miracle grow would help.
    So would urine.
    miracle grow products are to nutrients, what AM/PM hot dogs are to food; better than nothing.
    But there are many many products much better than miracle grow.

    don't know about these guys, but I'm on my 2nd harvest using MG bloom booster (instead of green/yellow, the package is green/violet?) and great results. the 1st crop was great, tasted fine, now crop #2 is almost finished, looking great. don't let people scare you.

    Growing soil, I suggest taking a couple hours to read up on organic nutes and ferts. Trust me your plants will love you for it and in return your buds will love you for it.

    I have no doubt that organic is the way to go; even if not, there are better products than miracle grow. I just remember when I first started growing, sooooo many people freaked me out by calling some ideas terrible, it'll kill your plants, etc.
    if you are trying to be really stealth about the whole grow, and don't have access to a good grow store for the good stuff, MG is fine.

    Re: Question: Miracle-Gro "Bloom Booster"

    Works perfectly fine for me.. All the people who claim that it taste like crap im sure they have never used it before.. Or they don't know how to flush there plants 2 weeks before harvest. My outdoor plant is now 5 feet tall and ive been using bloom booster. 15-30-15 i believe is what it is.

    But there is better stuff i guess

    It won't taste bad if you flush it correctly. You can find a number of 100% Organic growing products at the supermarket if you look. Walmart probably has a small section in the gardening "seasonal" department. I found mine at Meijer in Michigan, which is basically a Walmart.

    Good point dr. I use miracle grow but in moderation. I am currently experimenting with miracle grow and General hydroponics and you can surtainly see the differance in bud size. My piece of advice, is find what works for you and stick with it till you get some experiance, try other nutes as well and see how they affect your plants. Like Dr said don't let ppl scare you and definatly expand your knowledge. In any case As long as you got bud I am happy for ya and you should be to no matter what nutes you use
    KIA'S RIP You will never be forgotten

    I believe what you are referring to as flushing would be the last two weeks or so of flowering I use only water, no nutrients, uses up the nutrients so you get a less harsh taste, etc.

    It can also be the process of running mass PlainWater through your container or system to flush out the soil or the system
    when used to correct problems like NuteLock or the cat peein' in it...

    Good point DaMagoMan. I have seen that done for severe over nutrient cases or nutrient locked roots but assumed because of his/her question referring to "the last two weeks (of flowering)" that it was pointed toward flushing nutrient out of the plant for taste/toxicity reasons.

    I can tell you from experience that useing MG and not flushing completely will give you some nasty tasting bud.

    My buddy brought some over one day, I fired it up and said.."Dude, this tastes like somthing... like... Miracle Grow!" he says, ya, that what he uses to fert his plants... But I think if you flush right, this shouldn't happen.

    I agree with Boss-G, even with flushing it will not be very tasty. MG does work great in terms of yield, but the harsh taste isn't worth it. Get something else, and add Liquid Kharma as soon as you can.

    The best thing about growing is being able to control things like this and end up with a superior product you can't get elsewhere.
