I'd like to hear peoples experiences with single part nutrients and how they feel they compare to the more complicated 2-3 part nutrients.
Most nutrients come in a 2 part grow and 2 part bloom recipe. Some are single part for grow or bloom and some are double part for either grow or bloom (not specific to either) such as Canna or House and Garden.
I've tried many different nutrients so far I've enjoyed Floranova by General hydroponics and the Canna line most. I haven't had much experience with the General hydroponics flora lineup but I suspect I'll like that even more than the floranova. I primarily use floranova grow for veg before the outdoor season but have used the bloom on planted I kept in pots outdoors.
I don't have much reason but I suspect that the floranova grow is more than excellent and the bloom would fall in the category of good to great. I found many of the bloom nutrients to be comparable with 90% of my experience with bloom nutrients being either Floranova bloom or Canna 2part. The floranova grow worked far better than canna for veg though, yet was comparable to canna for flowering (in soil).
I'd like to hear about everyone's experiences with different nutrients I'm most interested in hearing about how everyone thinks the single part nutrients compare to the 3 part general hydroponics nutrients. I'd also like to know how you mix your nutrients and what your tapwater is like. I'd like to evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of the GH 1part vs 3part (and possibly using the Micro and Bloom without the Grow) accounting for such things as tap water and mix rates.
Previously my tap water has been tested at ~30ppm and a pH of 7 at my new location (far away from that location) it tests at 140ppm and and has a pH of 8.2
I've found if growing many strains at the same time it's easier to come up with a general all around food using the one part mixes. I've found that if your gonna keep the strains seperate and feed them separately that using a 3 part is better because it's easier to adjust to the needs of each strain.
