Snake oil or helpful products?

Whats the advantage over using straight water?

Thanks guys :wink:

Just been seeing a massive bunch of these products hitting the market (around here anyway) and I'm wondering if its worth the $12 for a quart of it. If it flushes your plants quicker, its worth it IMO, because then you have a whole extra week of feeding before you have to flush.

They do a better job of removing nutrient build up on media like the geolite and when flushing soils you don't have to pour as much water threw the  pot in order to achieve a good flush. Remember just giving a plant plain water the last few weeks is not flushing a plant like everybody thinks. :potleaf:

OK, Why?, Whats the differance?


Edit: Cervantes bible only talks about flushing as most of us think of it.
      Makes its sound like both being the same. As I read it.

Ok, now if your hydro just using water pretty much is a flush since the medium can't hold nutrients in most cases. Now with soil things are a little different. With soils you can withhold the water but the soil can hold nutrients for weeks. With soils you have to treat like they are over fertilized and pour water threw em in the standard method for treating over fed plants.
When you just give plants in soil plain water they are using up the remaining nutrients in the soil not the remaining nutrients in the plant which is what you want. :wink:

Very interesting! So, if I'm growing in soil, how do I go about getting the plant to use up the rest of its nutrients? Would one of these solutions help to achieve that?

I usually pour 1 gallon of h2o in my 1 gallon pots, every other day for like 2 weeks. That should flush the soil...and about how long does a plant store its own nutrients? I mean, once the soil is flushed of its built up foods.
