I've never used an "additive"...do I "need" to?

I do OK with just good ferts...AN Sensi, GH...but I've been wondering..."am I losing out on an easy way to boost yield"?

Well...am I?

If I'm using a good dose of Sensi or Maxibloom, am I REALLY going to see an improvement? To me, the plants look great.

These are from my last grow...Sensi bloom only...and some molasses too...

Wally Duck "CindyHaze"



Satori



LSD



Apollo 11



Another CindyHaze pheno



Should I spend the money? What do you suggest? Best bang for the buck...

Or don't bother, you won't get much more than what you're getting?

These were "soil", vert 400W HPS or CMH. I'm trying hempy buckets for the first time this next grow. That's why I'm asking...will ferts/molasses alone be sufficient?

Thanks...

No...it was serious... I was hoping there were others who grew plants that looked similar before...and were much better after starting to use additives.

I hear SO much talk of them...so I thought I'd ask.

Thank you, I'll take it as a compliment.

Most experienced growers will tell you that genectics is KEY! I think alot of growers are unaware that after all thier additives and voodoo rituals, this only makes up about 10% at best of makes the plant grow healthy and big. The other 90% of what is REALLY important has notta to do with base nutes or additives...but especially NOT additives. Yet growers are simply in denial (i guess...not sure why they continue to waste there money on junk....guess its cause they can...lol).....


PS - your plants look AWSOME bro!

Your thread is the definitive to all the BS in "additives" this proves that less is so much more!

not having an answer, all the same I've got to say you're the perfect person to answer it.

somebody who's got great performance with the 'basics' is exactly who I'd be interested to see test additives in a side-by-side comparison.

Hey brother, I run the canna terra line. I have noticed much better performance with there additives - all of them. Specifically to your question about "boosting" Canna Boost gives me an average of about 4 grams a plant off 2 clones in same environment under same light only difference is one is boosted other is not. You do the math on 4 x how ever many you run and you may find out its definitely worth the minor investment. Also i notice my plants get more solid and have about 5% more trichs from "boosting."

Just my own research on the topic...

I'm going to make my contribution to the "additives are bogus" crowd...

These buds are all at day 45, in nothing but coco, fed only Maxibloom and H202(instead of bubbling in a res prior to feeding).

They are small because I can only run about 20 Watts/sq.ft. due to the heat in the summer, but you get the picture.
