    Advanced Nutrients

    Has anybody ever used this stuff. I heard great things about this product but its a lil pricey.
    http://www.advancednutrients.com/
    I might try it out someday and wanted to know what others think of these products.

    Re: Advanced Nutrients

    I'm growing in a Ocean And Forest knock-off (Power Flower), and about 4 weeks ago I noticed the vibrant emerald green of my plants was starting to fade, an indication that the nitrogen that came mixed in with the potting soil was about out.
    For years I've been using chicken shit tea for veg. But I wanted something better.

    I have a friend who runs a grow shop.
    I called and asked him "what's the BEST organic veg nutrient on the market?"
    Without hesitation he said "Iguana Juice".
    I went to the organicnutrients web site and did some reading up. I was impressed but then again every one says theirs is the best.
    Anyway I ordered some.
    Pricey yes. I pay $30.00/litre (that includes tax & shipping).
    But I'm happy with the results so far. The plants greened right back up (but miracle grow will do that) but another thing I noticed was that the new meristems are thicker, which will allow more nutrients to get around to the budsites.
    And there is an intangible, a "feeling" I get (aura? vibes? anurism?) when I tend my garden that I didn't get before, a feeling that that says "we're happy, thank you daddy"
    Anyway I was impressed enough to have just ordered some more, plus a bottle of Iguana Juice bloom which should arrive Wed.

    So I suggest trying some.

    Advance Nutrients is VERY strong stuff... for their part ! & B nutes, be sure to use LESS than directed, and slowly move up higher..as it is VERY powerful stuff..

    Re: Advanced Nutrients

    Yeah I shoulda mentioned that.
    My friend at the grow shop told me to use 1/4 the recommended dosage, and advanced nutrients just re-labeled their products to reflect the correct dosage.
    The amt should be 1 tablespoon per litre of water.

    Also, Iguana Juice is a fish-based nutrient. I quit using fish-based nutrients years ago when my dog dug a plant up to find that dead fish it smelled, but now I grow in an enclosure so they're safe.

    Re: Advanced Nutrients

    Thank you. I have about 1 gallon each of the GH Floro series so I will wait til I am low and try it out. Would be nice to try organic base nutes instead of the chemy ones I prefer.

    i've used the mother earth organic super tea (grow and bloom) and they have worked fine for me. maybe one or two leaf fingers got burned.

    Re: Advanced Nutrients

    It's true, if you're just comparing the price Advanced Nutrients can look expensive. Of course that also depends a bit on where you live. The further it has to be shipped the more it costs.

    But we all know that price alone isn't the only consideration. You gotta give to get, right?

    Besides, Advanced Nutrients products are a lot stronger than anything else I've ever seen or heard of so you're not really comparing 1L to 1L. You have to account for the final volume of solution it makes.

    For my money it's completely worth it. I get more yield, better quality bud, and a grow with little to no problems. It actually costs me less to grow with AN when you add it all up.

    Re: Advanced Nutrients

    It's more concentrated than most.

    But it's well known that whether you're using Advanced Nutrients or anything else you've got to be cautious with any new product. Start out at half or even one quarter strength and work your way up. It's not the product's fault if the plants get burned - that's all the gardener.

    We've all done it and we'll all likely do it again. But you can't blame the hammer when you hit your thumb.

    Re: Advanced Nutrients

    hahah this is just like the other post but here il say it again

    I totally support Advanced Nutrients. heres why

    (oh and i dont work for them lol)

    People say they are expensive. Okay, sure, but they do research, and you know what? that costs money. but it pays off. consistent heavy yields, high thc percentage. what more can you ask for? quality is always there too. i know a couple of people using advanced, and even my buddy whos been growing for a couple of years recently switched to advanced after i showed him my stuff.

    I run their

    Sensi Grow a n b
    Voodoo juice
    Liquid Carbo load
    B-52

    Flowering
    Sensi Bloom A n B
    Bud Candy
    Big Bud
    Bud Blood
    B-52

    i notice flower sites a day or 2 into flowering. crystals form at about week two or 3. im not kidding. my plants just hit week 4 and check out this latest pic. they are vegge for 4 weeks and flowered for 9 weeks, but in week 4 of flower. they are about 3 1/2 feet tall, if not more. check out my thread!! ive been using AN since week 1. used oneness but didnt like it very much.

    Yes, hes right. It is. I haven't hit past 1100 ppm without burning my plants. But that's nice, because you save on nutrients. Not to mention your plants are happier at lower concentrations, when possible. Either way, go really easy on these nutes but its really nice because it rquires no cal mag.

    Re: Advanced Nutrients

    Used it, loved it, bought the t-shirt. Okay, not really.

    Seriously all, just look at ANís nute chart on their site. A lot of people are ODíing when they use these nutes and thatís why theyíre having troubles.

    Itís tempting to overdo it when you see the price tag, but plants canít read what youíve spent on them. All the plant knows is that youíre giving it too much, too fast.

    Easy does it.

    Always have a full bowl

    you know, i never thought about the fact that research costs $$$$$$. So, I guess it would make sense for a company to charge more.

    I mean, I would if I were them.

    Can't sell this sh-- for free, although that would be nice, wouldn't it?

    I've found some discount sites and companies that sell some hydroponics stuff for lower prices. ANd so far, it seems like they're legit. Maybe that's a good way to save some money along the way?

    Or just start out with as little nutes as you can, see how things work out and then move on up to new stuff when your grow gets bigger and makes more money, you know.

    always about $$$$, ain't it?

    That's a good point. People complain about companies being out to make money, but no one wants a job that pays in warm feelings.

    I'm glad the company I work for aggressively pursues profit, especially in this economic environment. That means they can afford to keep me employed, and I can afford to keep paying my rent and buying my groceries.


    I've grown with AN. Their nutrients aren't overpriced, they're just that much better.
