I'm not going to run CO2 for various reasons. For plants I've been thinking of Pineapple Chunk, Trippy Gorilla or California Orange Bud. Trippy Gorilla is my choice number one at the moment and of course feminized.
So I have already decided to go with Connoisseur Grow and Bloom. I need to decide what are my additives for my upcoming plants. So please throw some additives that you guys think I would be benefitting from! I could buy all of the 13 additives, but someone told me not to go with all of them at first in case some problems appears because it would be difficult to correct because I would have many variables. To add here, I am semi-experienced grower and I have been trying Canna, BioBizz and Advanced Hydroponics.
OK so, AN is not that great. The adds or the food the stuff is ok but your money would be better spent on canna, or what I use green planet duel fuel. I used to use lots of adds and it worked well but took time to design it so everything worked proper together. Since moving to dual fuel I use the base food duel fuel, vitamin (was Aussie tonic but now renamed) and silica thats it and things are rolling along as well as they were using more.
It's not about how much you slam it its what you use. Canna line is great, house and garden is great, Green planet is great, AN is alot of marketing, silly pics on bottles its not my first choice. I have used their products and didn't really like them. They work but they aren't the best. They charge alot of money though to make people feel like its the best. Really its paying for marketing.
Oh and the PH perfect thing is nonsense, just so you know
