That's a problem for me, I've been a broke ass grower for over a decade, and my ability to "experiment" has been seriously curbed. I've slowly evolved to a slightly modified Lucas mix and use very little else. The results I get are more from careful application and attention to environment. I consider myself lucky to have found the Lucas mix when I first started growing. It may not be perfect, but the results are definitely impressive. lol

It may take me another year or so to get stable. When this happens, you'll see me at competitions in Colorado.

This is a great thread, lots of provocative ideas here, but I feel there isn't anything concrete. What ratio of P to Ca, what ppm are the proponents of that recipe suggesting? What total EC and at what stage? More P and Ca compared to what, the Mel Frank ratio?

What is the Mel Frank ratio?

Tiejans could apply to starting the cec properly...add enough gypsum til the cec is 85% Ca...but it does not work for hydro style fertigation. There is no need to flocculate a coco/perlite mix.

IMO Ca is the most important cation and it is not even mentioned.

Start by going to slow’s thread and let him teach you about Ca.

Every single legal grow I have seen doing hydro has a Ca shortage. How to beat that is up to you. Pretty sure it won’t haunt me on my death bed

I went through most of the thread and didn't find references to any hydro information. I put up a request for anyone who might have a link, we'll see what happens.
