I cant imagine a cleaner product than one grown in a sealed environment with tested clean synthetic nutrients tbh (and tissue testing), hell add in silicon, aminos, humic/fulvic acid, vitamins B1 and B2, ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and some beneficial bacterias/fungi its damn near the same (to me at least).
Ha just "some" beneficial bacteria?.. thats where organic wins.. my soil is super alive.
You can add all that stuff and tell yourself that plant is absorbing it etc but you dont know..
Even my worst soil mixes when i was learning organics did not go that badly compared to several times using a different bottled nute and getting horrible tasting weird plants..
The trillions of extra microbes in an organic mix is where it wins out because they mediate and mitigate any toxic excesses..
Plus plants have grown with this level of mutualistic relationship in soil since day 1 and not in soiless mixes being drip fed nutrients decided by its master..
When you go organic you'll understand when you see plants happier and healthier than anything you have seen.. you cant force greatness..
Only imo but i did use bottled nutes for 15 years before going organic 5 ago and i do wish id gone organic 20 years ago now.
