Current formula in promix is 880gs jacks, 880gs calnit, 7ml per gl. Then I add 1ml of silica to get the pH up to 6.6/6.7. now I'm using 10ml of hygrozyme and fulpower with every feed and they are loving it. Pricy stuff but worth it imo

That said I do like adding a couple hundred ppms of it to my veg and flower feed (for the first 4 weeks). Its gets the aminos, humic/ fulvic and chitosan I want in the mix.
thanks for the heads up. i may still give it a shot after i burn through this 30lbs of jacks i have.

On another note isn’t there some other way to mix powdered nutes like sometype of an industrial mixer or something?.Because how do greenhouse and agricultural growers mix their powered nutes??

I use a paint stirring attachment on my power drill....10$ or so at Lowe's/El Depot. Works like a charm.

About to make the switch to Jacks\dry nutes, have a few questions first!;



Whats the difference between the many products, like the oasis blend?


I noticed some differences in pictures of the 40# bags for sale online, is there a new version of Jack's hydro, and should I avoid buying the older stuff?


And lastly, I want to make a big one time purchase, one supply for all my plants including most types of vegetables. All hydro coco/nft/dwc, indoors and outdoor greenhouse.

Should I avoid "jacks hydro 5-12-26", and instead get some of the other products, to better suit all the different plants feed ratios?

I think I remember reading here and elsewhere that the 5-12-26 is best suited specifically for cannabis, would it even make a good base for everything?

Thanks guys!

Per jacks rep: oasis/ jacks 16-4-17 and jacks cal-mag is a 2 part recipe that’s works best with peat/promix. And from my personal experience it works great!

Jacks 321 is made to work with hydro or coco.

It does great although I’ve found some strains need alittle tweaking at least in veg.

Never tried on veggies sorry

I spray jacks (5-12-26)/calnit on my veggies through a fertigator at about an ounce a gallon and they love it.

What the rep at Peters told me was ......if you have calcium in your media use the "classic" formulas.

If your media holds no available calcium, ie...hydro, coir, unammended peat, use the "Controlled Environment" formulas, ie....5-12-26/calnit.

In my humble opinion 5-12-26/calnit would work in any media and allows you to adjust your nitrogen level being a 2 part formula.

Never used the oasis (16-4-17).

I too have only used 5-12-26 with success, never tried the others. Gotta tweak your pH and ec to the medium and feed schedule

I was unable to find the label of the 16-4-17

Jacks 5-12-26 has very high levels of magnesium and sulfur.... this has led some to speculate it has been made for cannabis...

most people who use 5-12-26 can avoid the use of epsoms...... magnesium and sulfer

with 16-4-17 thats always an option

However the npk sounds more like something I would give to lettuce...not a flower plant of any sort

I do plan on mostly growing a lot of outdoor greens, NFT and kratky style. The oasis sounds great for that.

Maybe I should just get a 25lb bag of both, and the cal-nit too. Might split some off with a friend anyway..

Here's a decent breakdown of the 321 with some good info: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUoTFGXfb60

Thanks guys

I did a modified kratky this year......tomatoes....

You might consider it....

I grew in 5 gallon buckets.....let the plants draw down about a third....then maintained that level...
a controller bucket linked to say 12 buckets with plants....

fertigate until you have runoff on the last bucket..... with cannabis however I would do things differently...each bucket would be linked to the controller bucket
You just need to expose some of the roots to the air....


If you have any q's send me a msg
