You'll get the same results either way, save your money.
Nature is like a brilliant opponent in chess: "We know that his play is always fair, just and patient. But also we know, to our cost, that he never overlooks a mistake, or makes the smallest allowance for ignorance." - Thomas Henry Huxley
"Anyway, no drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we're looking for the source of our troubles, we shouldn't test people for drugs, we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed and love of power." -P. J. O'Rourke
The absolute best-tasting kickass outdoor grown herb I ever tasted came from an old hippy lady I know who has been growing since the 1970's. She told me her secret is to mix 2/3 Pro-Mix with 1/3 compost from her garden. At the start of the season she adds a few handfuls of alfalfa pellets from the local feed store to the mix to give an initial nitrogen boost. She claims it kickstarts the compost as well.. Anyways.. her herb is super-primo and the cost to produce is basically the cost of the Pro-Mix, which she trades for herb.. since she doesn't believe in cash. I love visiting her, she is a fountain of knowledge on how to live simply.
So, save your money.. the ingredients list from Mr Celsius is all you need. Take the money you save and buy a book on basic plant science and you will be way ahead,
Invest in your knowledge of organic growing and not in the # of bottles on your shelf.
WalMart should have evryhting you need to be offf to a good organic start.
I cover my ass by having 3 products on hand, Liquid Karma, PBPro bloom for soil, PBPro veg formula, if bottled nutes are your thing you'll get stellar and very close to full organic results with this.
The LK is a sort of catalyst, I add it once in awhile to freshen the soil up.
You can buy a 50 pound bag of of organic fetilizer at your quality garden store for 35 dollars..
Do not buy expensive guano products or advanced nutes products. I went to university testing farm 3 weeks ago. Nothing but men marketing products to fools.
Care to elaborate on the "50 pound bag of ferts" ?
This is the second thread I've seen you say not to buy guano or bottled ferts, and I would like to know what your "secret" is. Also I'd like to know what happens when you have a problem in mid flower. Do you add more all in one fert?
