INteresting quote from Mandala Seeds
    #662866 - 03/19/13 06:42 PM (3 years, 8 months ago)

"Fertilizing on soil is always the worse choice compared to fresh soil and sufficient root space! Don't be tempted to believe that a lot of fertilizing will give you better results. This is a myth from the agrochemical industry that wants to sell their products in huge quantities. Our environment is already suffering worldwide from the results.

Fertilizer should be used with extreme care indoor and seen only as a minor supplement to top up nutrients or to assist in cases of accidental deficiencies. In hydroponics moderate EC levels should be used instead of heroic dosages to "force" flowering. For outdoor the fertilizing must be dosaged in accordance with soil quality and the size of the plants."

In general I think overfertilizing is rampant. I use 1/4-1/2 strength. The only thing I will be using at almost full strength is supplementary nutes like calmag.

I think they are advocating for organic soil already full of nutes, and that's a fine way to go. But by no means should it be the only way to go. For me, soilless mixes were the most appealing because I get to tailor the nutes to be exactly how I want them to be.

Yes, and yes. 

I find it appealing to not have to worry about nutrients.  Give it everything it needs from the get-go, to last from start to finish.  Just add water. 

If given a choice, it seems the simpler one would be the best.  Occam's razor?

Have a look at the picture gallery at Mandala.  Those results aren't exactly bad.

Mandala has some great genetics indeed.
Most of which are mild feeders.
The trick to growing any type of plant is to learn what it wants and needs.  Then give it no more or no less.
They will love you for it, I promise you that.
