Fox Farms and Earth Juice
    #13597 - 04/26/08 04:25 PM (8 years, 7 months ago)

Ive heard good things about both, anyone tried both and have opinions on both? Or even and opinion on one? Just talking of the nutrients and not the soils.

I use(d) grow big, tiger bloom, and big bloom from their line. I liked the grow big, but because their soil line is pretty N rich i don't use it anymore. Tiger bloom proved to really drop the PH of my soil quickly and i've noticed a lot of other people having problems with it so i axed it. The big bloom is great because it's not nutrient rich and provides some great micro nutes for your soil. You could probably get away with feeding full strength big bloom during the 12/12 cycle with ever watering. Personally i water once with big bloom + flowering nutes, then water with just big bloom, and the 3rd watering is just plain water (only if the plants look like they have enough food or have been over fed).

I've seen good results with the open sesame, beastie bloomz, and cha-ching, but i haven't used them. I really don't want to get involved with solid ferts and the issues that come with using them.

I use the full Earth Juice line and love it so far. I'm getting a little sick of having to buffer the pH so much prior to feeding, but my plants grow fast and healthy, so I can't complain. Once I invested in getting the full 5-bottle line I haven't seen a single deficiency, and my plants have grown over an inch in some 24 hour periods.

I tried the Earth Juice line for a while in both my DWC and Aero setups since it was organic. The growth was nice but maintenance was a bitch.

As someone said above, it's not buffered well, so PH fluctuates pretty wildly. Nutrients need to be changed and systems flushed more often than usual since organics seem to "thicken" the water after a while. It got to where I was having to clean my nozzles out every day.

I've since switched to GH Flora nutes and haven't had near the headache.

With these nutes is ph a big problem while using soil?

I just buffer it before adding it to the soil and I haven't had a problem yet. I'm a little worried that I might get some salt accumulation from my "pH up" later in the grow however.
