I like using soil for now as I only have to water 1-2 weekly, but wouldn't be against switching to CoCo if needed... thanks in advance. B916
1tsp is about maximum, most strains and flowering rooms require a lot less. Overfeeding destroys quality fairly quickly, so go easy.

So the scoop weighs about 6g level {packed}, to make it 5g is about 1\8" or so below the scoop {maybe 90-95% filled}. 7g is basically a heaping scoop that isnt heaping to the point of spilling really easy {maybe 120% not 150% or anything overly sloppy.}


The Maxi feed charts where they say 1.5teaspoons... they are saying 7.5 grams basically so... I'm assuming thats around the 1000ppm area...

So.... 5g=666ppm.... 6g=800ppm 7.5g=1000ppm
1.3ec 1.6ec 2.0ec
{All .5 scale}.. {133ppm per gram}


I think ive decoded this shit finally guys lol... Ec meter on the way, i'll update.

With Maxibloom, 3/4 of a TSP is good. I just finished a couple runs with V+B HD and am considering going back to Maxibloom as a base again because of cost and also because I am able to achieve similar results with both Maxi and V+B. I don't really do KISS since I use a few other things/additives, but I can say with certainty now that Maxibloom is still the shit compared to other higher priced one parts/powder ferts.

Looking at undercurrent's ec reccomendations for more aerated dwc systems {More than 1.25lpm per gallon}... I made this little picture mod to help people remember a little better. To get these Ecs you could literally max out at around 3 grams of Maxibloom {around 400ppm}if you wanted to follow 100% its 2.5-2.6g for 350ppm. 200ppm is only 1.5g. All of this is per gallon of course, and .5 scale.

More oxygen\dissolved oxygen = more efficient nute delivery.

Has GH changed anything with Maxibloom recently?

I have been using it for a couple of years with good results but my last two runs have had issues.

My leaves are turning yellow and are blotchy.

Any ideas?

Maxigrow seems to work better for Veg than Maxibloom in my experience. Too much PK in Maxibloom for veg, it'll work, but it seems to cause lockouts or deficiencies in certain plants. Try Maxigrow, you'll notice a big difference in overall plant health during veg with it.

The last batch I picked up looked like it had old Maxibloom ground up and added to new powder. I left the lid off the jar I had it in and it went bad. I'm pretty sure I had the same prolems. Not sure, because it was in soil and a super hot vegging environment. Didn't flower with it.

Scotts bought them out, and I'm wondering if this is the beginning of the end for GH. I personally will not tolerate cost savings interrupting the 15 year quality GH has provided for me. I'll jump ship in a heartbeat.

Check out Jack's, it's even cheaper and is higher quality imo.

Sometimes maxibloom is pink , sometimes its yellow. I have had both and read somewhere in this thread that the color is differant depending on which plant it is made in
Same product though. I always try to get the 16lb tub so I dont worry about variance in the kilo bags .
Im sure its just me being ocd about stuff.
