    I dont understand the hype of the maxibloom lucas instructions. Its the same instructions on the package: 1 teaspoon per gallon.
    So you can veg fine using a nute meant for bloom is all there is to learn here?

    im using maxibloom and veg+bloom dirty. i want to see which one actually does better for my preference in yeild,flavor and potency. i also have other plants that 1 gets maxi and floralicious plus and the other gets veg+bloom dirty and +size. so far the veg+bloom is just overall alot more healthy and the stems and trunk are fatter then the maxi

    Could use your help buddy two of mine are still struggling. Is it possible that the combation of 3.5g of maxibloom plus 1-2ml of rapid start root enhancer is too much nitrogen and that's why they are stunted? I reduced to 1/4 strength and dropped rapid start and raised the lights

    I used Maxibloom in a recirculating Hempy setup and what I noticed was that MB drops my PH a good bit by itself requiring half as much PH down and that as the nutes were used up PH rose. The cure is just to do a normal res change when the PH is higher than you like or every 7-10 days. If you use RO water your problem will likely be your PH dropping too low and you will need to PH up.

    There seems to be a misconception as to plant uptake and PPM's going on, just because there are dissolved solids in your water does not mean your plant uses them or that necessarily they will cause problems. The only problem with my 1.1 EC water is that I have to PH it heavily and I get a slow upward drift as my nutes are used up. As long as I have my nutes at a level that is within reason and I change the reservoir every 7-10 days I have no issues with PPM buildup or lockouts. You can get a water report from your water dept (might get it online as published) and it will tell you what is in it.

    thanks again for the help stoney. Do you incorporate rapid start or roots exceleartor during veg period? or utilize protekt at all during the grow?any other additives you incorporate during the bloom stage like floralicious or koolbloom? I would like to know your concoction.

    I got a friend to switch over to coco and KISS last year. So he puts a bunch of clones in the coco and doesn't give them any feed except his well water which I tested at less than 100ppms. He grew them 4' tall in his greenhouse and they looked real good except they were lime green from a lack of N. He put them in bloom and gave them 7g/gal MB and they put out the dank. Coco and MJ are amazing.

That's a metal garden stake that I drilled a couple holes through and bolted on an aluminum plate. If anybody has a faster way to mix 5 gal of MB I'd like to see it

    I use something similar, mines a paint stirring attachment...gets a rez thouroughly mixed fast

    I just drop it in a 5 gallon sparkletts bottle and shake! room temperature works best.
