Why do you grow organically?

What prompted you to switch?

I was really happy with my perpetual ebb/flow SOG in coco setup. Cranked out lots of nice compact plants like clockwork as I searched for keepers. Then fusarium came into my grow room. Plants in biologically active soil allowed me to have successful grows again. This seems more suited to larger plants, but it is easier in many ways.

It's more natural, it's not slowly polluting the ecosystem and poisoning our drinking water and adding on to every other bad living habit we have. It's cheaper and you can make your own with a few different manures and natural amendments. But it's more complicated and is not like following a fertilizer companies directions, and can easily burn plants if you're not careful. It's more forgiving for bigger plants with big root systems. Chem fertilizer are easier and usually give great predictable results and can conveniently be bought and don't usually leave odours after use.... It's less time consuming then making your own. Man made convenience vs natural plant evolution.

Cost? Surely the smaller harvest makes that tough?

Organics taste better, burn smoother, are healthier for the plants, are more economic, and yields are comparable when done right.

yields can be compared certainly. But they will be lower. Why else would all commercial operations use chemicals?
