    I used Maxi-Bloom a few times, works well...but make sure it is mixed well. I got some tip burn bad one time, just because I think It was not dissolved well enough. That was in DWC, so it effects the roots right away. I have hooked a few on Maxi but my advice is to mix it a day ahead in a jug...then re-shake before putting using.

    Maxi works really well, I just use the Flora series because I like to cut the Micro. I have a big bag of Maxi-Bloom laying around, might use it next round on some...see how they compare. I have not used it in Coco. Does anyone use Floralicious Plus anymore?

      Yes, the plants may be slightly heartier, but to what degree is it worth it?
      Some of the best bud in my life has been grown with this method.
      I assure you, its not needed.

      I dont know about all other brands of silicate but pro silicate from grotex is very alkaline 2.5ml which is the soil dose will raise my ph from 4.8 to about 5.8-6.0 and it makes your plants very strong I think it would be a must have additive for any strain known to grow buds heavier then it can normally hold.

        i water every other day with 1 tsp MB per gal h2o and sometimes i barely get run off and sometimes i water till i get plenty, about 10%.

        i water DTW and i dont have a waste res so im cautious on how much run off i get b/c i dont want my RH to rise.

        the pot size doesnt matter, run off is run off. if you aim for 20% run off the there will be a larger volume of run off in a 3 gal pot opposed to 1 gal.

        cant wait to see some pics and go the KISS route, the proof is in the pics.

          Feed,water,water or feed ,water ,feed, or would you mix it half strength and feed every time you water. I just want to get a basic idea how often I should feed them in soil with this nute.
          I believe the general rule with soil is to feed every 3rd/4th watering.
          Sometimes I feed with every watering, sometimes every other watering, and I don't have any issues. (Mind you, all my soil plants are outside)
          I'm sure the soil used may play a role, some soils are "hotter" than others...

          I stopped adding FP+ to my rez because it would smell like something rotten within a few days. (I don't use a rez chiller) But I do use it on all my outdoors ladies

            Does the FP make a big difference?

              I can't really say that it makes a big diff, honestly. Or at least I haven't noticed any diff.

                  Going to start using maxibloom today on a few clones I have, What do you recommend for strength? I read someone say use full strength on everything except seedlings. I think ill start them on 1/2 strength and go from there.



                  Also one last question as of right now i don't have either ph up or down. What silicate product do you guys recommend if ph up is needed?

                    Yeh 1/2 strength is good....not for too long though, maybe a watering or two....they need their food as much as mama does. I think I saw someone doing 3/4 strength....however I just take the water I use on my moms and use it right on the lil buggers. They love it.
                    Just for future reference
                    Bless.

                        Suggestions???

                        How are you guys getting this stuff to mix with water?

                        I just started with the MB and I can't seem to get it completely dissolved.

                        TIA

                          When I mix a rez I drop in a small pump for an hour or so, it mixes things up nicely.
                          If I'm doing a gallon at a time I start off with a 1/2" of water, dump a tsp in and shake the hell out of it, then fill and ph up. Their will always be some grains left but it has yet to cause me any problems.

                            Sorry, don't use em! At least...I don't THINK I do. Someone mentioned how pH up was Silicates?? Anyways only Maxi and pH up in my water....K.I.S.S.!!!

                            Yep, what the man said. I like a little warm water...gallon jug...shake like hell! Then just add that liquid solution to the rest of the water and pH....it mixes nicely!

                            Just switched everything over to Hydroton pellets. I was having overwatering issues with straight coco...plus Im BROKE! So Im using this old Hydroton I have around....I'll let everyone know how well it works with Maxi!

                            As of right now the RW cubes I put in the pellets a week ago are blowing UP!

                              This is the "Recommended" Maxi amounts....

                              Thought I should put it up...for anyone who really cares.

                              I strike everything else.....Just MaxiBloom. Its just interesting to look at..

                                you can use Silica Blast which is a Botanicare product. silica will also aide in root development and to strengthen the stems.

                                i like the idea dissolving the MB / KB in warm water first. ive just been shaking the hell out of a gal and theres always a little not dissolved but no probs here.
