So im at a bit of a cross roads with choosing nutrients and I just wanted to know how everyone here feels about Dutch Master Gold Range Nutrients. So far since beginning my exploration into hydroponics i've completed one very successful dwc grow (7 ounces off one plant) and i look to continue that success. with that plant and with my current plant I used Dutch Master Gold Range GROW A and B for Veg as with my current plant. Just today I picked up DM's Gold Range ZONE which is a root sterilizer-basically keeps roots sucking up nutrients at their full potential by sterilizing aka killing any bad pathogens that grow in the nutrient rich waters expecially in DWC set ups, yet it kills in a biological way that does no harm to your plant and theirs barely anything in it as far as the NPK's go so it doesn't add to your PPM and it helps keep PH a bit more stable, or atleast slows down the jump from 5.5 to 6.5 that i've been experiencing with high PPM's of bloom nutrients latley. Every morning i set my PH at 5.3-5.5 and on the days that i get home late around lights off its usually back up to 6.3-6.5 and i trip. it sucks. tho most days im home early enuf to catch it in the 6.0-6.3 range and im able to smack it back down with a couple ml of PH Down.
Regardless I must also admit that I love that fact that i never have to use PH down with RO'd 7.0 PH'd water with nutrients at full strength. Every time i'd add full strength nut's i'd test the PH and boom perfect 5.7-5.8. I loved it. Kicked ass compared to AN. Tho I havn't tried there PH perfect stuff yet and can't wait too! But anyways because DUtch master has treated me so freakin well it's tantalizing me to try it as my base nutrient over Heavy 16 pro nutrients and AN's PH perfect Sensi Bloom A and B. Well maybe you guys can help me decided with some of your expereinces. and i'll be chjecking back in to let you know how ZONE works for me when I mix it into a changed res tomorrow :-)
take it EZ!
