What do you recommend for organic hydro?
    #631213 - 07/10/12 03:53 PM (4 years, 7 months ago)

100% organic only. Not looking to clog up my jets or have any root beer float deals. I've asked this question on other websites and have picked up good info. Thanks for your help!

I looked into using the Roots Organics line, but my hydro store guy advised me I would end up with a lower yeild than with synthetics, so I decided to wait until I wasn't scraping to get by till I switched to it...

Roots sucks.....the people who run it are awful.  and it shoots your pH down a ton.

Good info. What's your personal recommendation for an organic nutrient line that works in hydroponics/aeroponics systems?

I don't.....I recommend botanicaire through and through.


If you want to do true organic you should switch to soil.

General Hydro0ponics has a new organic line up out, I haven't tried it myself.
I have used all the other lines they offer and they work great.

CX Hydroponics is releasing their nutrient line here in the US.
Been thinking about ordering a sample pack from them.
They are an Aussie based company.

From my understanding those "organic" nutrient lines tend not to be 100% organic to begin with.  But my research is a few years old in all honesty.

I've heard the same.
I haven't done much research on the GH organic line yet.
I'm still trying to find more info on CX Hydroponics, other than the company site, which offered up samples for 25 bucks shipping.
But most Aussie Companies are big on Organics.

Yup, like I said originally.  If you want to do true 100 percent organic, ya gotta switch to soil.  Or start making you're own nutrients.

I've met a lot of people here in California that are interested in growing 100% organic. Some people want to be 100% sure that their plant food is clean and organic. I've heard mixed things about GH. A friend of mine uses Botanicare and it is not bad at all.

However, the only 100% organic (supposedly) hydro lines I've heard of are Iguana Juice by Advanced Nutrients and Grower's Secret METHOD. Let me know if you've tried either of these lines.

@hawksapprentice - what do you recommend for soil then? Compost tea?

Compost teas, and making you're own teas with earthworm castings and batguano etc.

Either that, or look into aquaponics. I've been reading up of that because I want to start farming tilapia and using the fish-poo-water to grow lettuce and strawberries in my greenhouse...

My brother is using iguana and the plants have responded very well to it. Now if he could just let his harvest mature he would have some bomb nuggets. He's in soil. 

Tank, I saw one aquaponics setup on tv, the guy was using his pool and had chicken above it pooping
