Hey Synbad,You're still younger than me if your handle is your age!
Have you used AN nutes before and have you tried any others? Curious about how they compare.
Yes, used AN Micro, Grow and Bloom, Cal/Mag, Overdrive and Flawless Finish on my first grow. I found all of them to be great. This time around, I added Great White and Hydroguard for root growth (Awesome stuff!) and will add Big Bud starting next week. My Ph has been perfect but l'll caution you to use Cal/Mag sparingly. I needed it because I was using RO water that had a PPM of 0. Cal/Mag WILL lower your Ph if you use too much. Now, m using spring water so I'm only adding 1ml per liter of spring water and everything is Ph perfect.
To be honest, I haven't tried others because I'm a bit of a nut when it comes to doing due diligence. AN products are IMHO the best. General Hydroponics was recently acquired by Scotts (Miracle Grow, lawn care, etc). I prefer to use nutes that are specific to my plants needs rather than what a giant chemical conglomerate wants to peddle.
What are you using?
