    I do hope your path to organics is an easier approach for you, and the results make you happy nonetheless. If organics dont work out though, consider CRF(controlled released fertilizer) as a third option.
    Thanks for the info. I've had pretty good results so far, but I'm definitely interested in organic growing. Not mixing nutes would be.

    I may have to look into the CRF also.

    Thanks again for the info and suggestion.

    It would really be nice not having to mess with nutes any more. I spend way too much time mixing and then pHing. I mean, I can and do mix enough for 3-4 days at a time. But when you have plants on slightly different schedules you sometimes have to mix for specific plants and that's a huge pain in the ass. Not to mention that I really don't want to be smoking any chemicals if I can avoid it.

    I'm trying to maintain a low profile, would be nice not having to figure out where tondispose of my empty bottles. I'm also trying to keep my cost down as much as possible.
    I liked reading True Living Organics by The Rev. http://www.amazon.com/True-Living-Or...iving+organics

    Take some of the stuff he writes about with a grain of salt though. Some of what he's convinced about seems more like Bro Science to me than real science.

    Another staple is Teaming With Microbes by Jeff Lowenfels and Wayne Lewis http://www.amazon.com/Teaming-Microb...iving+organics

    It's drier though and admittedly I didn't make it all the way through. I need to pick it back up and finish what I started.
