Start with Aquashield or hydroguard (same thing), then get some great white, or a cheaper alternative, "myco soluble" from fungi dot com. You will find your plants will much appreciate it, especially in veg. Check out my "live or sterile" article for more info.Thanks for the reply capn.

And I'll look into the beneficial bacteria more. Any suggestions on brand? I'm trying to find one that I can take straight out of the bottle instead of brewing some myself.

I use and love the General Organics line, I would highly recommend although make sure to purchase every single item in the Organics line. I started with the GO BOX and as I ran out I purchased the 1L bottles.Any thoughts on the general organics line?
