You guys still running the Pure Blend? If you have switched, what are you using now?

I was using General Organics, but felt like PBP might be better lately, so I am going back to Pure Blend now. Going to keep running the General Organics Calmag and Biobud alongside the PBP anyway, those seem like the highlights of the GO line.

Any info is appreciated, with the money we spend on nutrients, best be informed!

I'm doing organic soil right now. I switched because I wanted something even easier!! Using water only, with an occasional microbe boost is pretty awesome. I still have some PBP just in case though. I used it for so long I wouldn't feel right if I didn't have any on the shelf!

Half the strains at dispensaries are grown with PBP. It doesn't say that on the label, you can just taste it. Like plastic flowers.

I'm still using PBP Bloom for soil (1-4-5) its hard to beat. It definitely does not taste like plastic flowers. In combination with Mammoth P and Recharge you can use 15 ml/gal every other water and be just fine.

I'm in straight coco and switched to Botanicare's PBP bloom for soil with a few other products/supplements they make and I can tell you my plants taste and smell better than they ever have. organic enough for me and soooo easy.....I love it.

I switched back from organic soil to just straight Happy Frog and PBP. Shit is hard to beat.

Pbp does not have micros as it is not a complete fert. You need fulvex or microblast as well.

I'm not looking for a complete one part fert (they don't exist), did the kiss method for a few years learning to grow first. now I want something more on the organic side, something more tunable and less mess. I supplement with their cal-mag, fulvex, liquid karma, silica blast and their hydroguard. the smell and flavor I'm getting now are better than ever and I'm only on my second run with the botanicare.

no problemos with the pure blend pro! while im only on my 3rd run with it I really like the results im getting with the botanicare line up. a little bit better taste and smell. weather that's related to it being a little more on the organic side or my less is better approach, I don't know probably both. I feed @ about 1.3 to 1.5ec in veg and only use a base (1 of their 3), ph up and the hydroguard. in flower its on and I use their pbp soil formula along with calmag, liquid karma, fulvex, silica blast, ph up and hydroguard with ro water @ 10ppms/.5ec while staying within 1.4-1.6ec. about every 10 days I will give them (lightly!) straight ro and a azatrol drench, about 5-10% runoff in coco. keeps them freaking knats in check. I never spray the plants themselves with anything ever, why?

these are 2 weeks into flower. they don't look over or under fed to me, but im not an expert, yet haha. I don't trim the plant either, it lets me know (I think) from the bottom up how im feeding her.
