Guide to nutrients

A recent Amazon search provided me with so many different nutrient companies and types of nutrients that I'm left overwhelmed. Does this forum have a section where different brands and types of nutrients are discussed? I did some searching here but didn't find anything that's definitive.

New nutrient companies pop up almost weekly it can be difficult to keep track for sure.

There are a few brands that have been run many times over on here that would all be good places to start. General hydroponics, advanced nutrients, Dyna-Gro, Remo, Canna, megacrop and probably a bunch more.

Different styles of growing require different nutrients so you'll need to establish that before you buy anything.

I am liking Megacrop. Simple one nutrient for the entire grow. I like to use Fox Farms Ocean Forest and then Megacrop. I just had my first plant harvest with that setup and got nearly 8oz from one Blue Dream'matic auto. I grew another with Megacrop in ProMixHP and had issues towards the end, but that plant will likely produce a similar amount. It's in the dry tent now. I messed around with other things during this grow, but I think the Megacrop by itself is the way to go.

If you are interested, you can read my journal in my sig.
 
I wound up getting the starter kit from Nector For The Gods. Free but had to pay shipping. The case contains Gaia, Medusa, Zeus, Demeter’s, Athena’s and Herculean Harvest, as well as an 8-ounce bottle of Khaos and Olympus up. I'll be quite busy this season!

When you get tired of measuring out 8 bottles of nutes just to feed your girl's switch to MegaCrop lol. They offer a free sample bag too. Knocked out 20+ oz off my free sample bag.

It should work well for you.
I used it for two grows before I went to LOS No-till and got 20 oz on first grow and I think it was 17.5 oz on second grow, from just two plants.

Considering the fact when you walk into any convenient store. There are over 20 brands of water. WATER!

Not everyone is ever going to like or need the same thing. So there are plenty of options. The fact that everyone wants the best makes advertising easy. Say its better and people will believe it. Not all but some. In the end. Most are all the same thing. Just like water being water.

In most case's with nutrients less is better.
