    My personal opinion is not to use salts in soil.. then you get build up problems. I see salts such as maxi as a hydro/hydro like nutrient.. like coco (which I think still builds up slightly).. or strictly hydro.. that's just my opinion though, I'm sure it'll work well enough in soil, just make sure you aren't overdoing it.

    A typical rule of thumb is whatever the label says (1tsp per gallon) is hydro directions, meant for a 1 week reservoir.. in soil you want to divide that 1tsp up over the course of a week, or just dose 1 time a week at full strength. giving 1tsp 4 times a week in soil is overkill.

    I'd probably run ec a little higher under high intensity light.. I've down graded to about 450watts of t5 for flower from a 1k hps, so less light typically calls for less ec.. So running in a 5 gal bucket, I can only use 4 gal water. 2 scoops puts my at basically 1ec.. I've seen with maxigrow 1.2ec is good, maxibloom needs 1.6... But I'm gonna try to squeeze by with a little less ec, should be fine. Plant uptake better with less (within reason)

    I've been @ ~3 scoops/5gal bucket and they've been looking super lush and healthy. I haven't had to feed anything over 1.2 either...it's pretty much the majic number for me health yield and quality wise with any nute I've tried. Some of the best advice I was given was low ec feeds start to finish.

    I'll be using maxigrow only from veg to harvest on next round in dwc. I'm logging on a different site, but I'll be sure to drop a pic every now and then to show that maxigrow works fantastic in flower. I've always felt it's the more complete nutrient vs bloom.. Time will tell. I'll be rocking 1.0ec all through

    I started using MG in veg about 1.5 years ago. Works better than MB and h3ads 6/9 both. I don't follow the instructions though. 1-2 tsp/gal is crazy. I give them about 1/2tsp/gal and stay under 1.2ec. As soon as they get about 2' tall I stick a blumat in the coco and feed them 1.2ec of h3ads 6/9 till they are done. Just because MB works for most people doesn't mean it is better than MG in veg.

Personally I think I'll give it shot though, its hard not ignore the hype in this thread. I've been using several different products. I'll just use maxibloom and calmag and put the rest of the stuff in a box and see what kind of results I get. I didn't see the results I was looking for using all the stuff I was using; if anything maybe I did more harm then good. I should stick to basics, to get a reference point so If I use those other products again, I'll be able to see if they actually do anything or are just snake oil.
    Don't use calmag with anything unless you are using RO. That shit screwed up more plants than it ever helped. Use epsom

    Just how much N,P or K do you think is contained in that 650 PPM? Do you think creek water is without any TDS? Lake water? What about soil outdoors? This is water decreed drinkable by the state(how funny is that!) and it limits TDS to certain minerals. The minerals do force me to use a lot of PH down but things grow nicely.

    this is a cheese n chaze before mg:


    and heres on after being fed mgrow for a couple weeks:
    i know the pics arent the best, but this one as well as all the others are much healthier looking. no deficient looking leaves no more red\purple stems\stalks, nothing but lush green growth. i know some purists may disagree, but after trying maxigrow in veg and seeing the results im going to keep using it for veg.
