Anything to add to Lucas Formula?

I'm going to be doing a bit of a test.

On the first batch of plants, I will use Lucas formula at possibly a higher PPM.

On the second batch, I will use Bio-Grow.

Is there anything I could add to either for bigger buds?

There are a ton of varieties from Advanced Nutrients (B-52, Big Bud, etc.).. should I use any of them?

Thanks.

I do not like to use the Lucas formula during veg. There is just not enough N, IMO, for the plant to make it through flowering without premature N depletion.

When you use the Bio Bizz, make sure that your soil is also organic.

I have never found any of the additives like Big Bud or any of those other bloom boosters to be worth anything.

I run it and it works great for me.

I do add Kool bloom in flower tho, but not to much at first. I start work a low dose about week three and bump it up.

It really seems like my Bloombastic has been working wonders for my over 1 1/2 years doing this. Absolutely, no disrespect just it seems every time I give the first application at 4 weeks, the next day I seem to see results. They immediately look to bulge a bit more and surely intensify with frost production, the next day or two after. I can honestly count on seeing it everytime I apply it.

Only thing is, I've never done a grow without it hah! It just seems to blatant everytime I use it. I dunno.. I'm still a noob compared to all of you, so I feel like my opinion (often time) is slightly irrelevant and would come off as "bias'd" as I've only done so much.

lol :D

I forgot to mention that I asdd Cal-Mag to the GH nutes whether I am using the Lucas formulas or all 3 parts.

I have used Kool-Bloom, but really haven't noticed much difference with that either. I tried Big Bud on my organic grows, but likewise, did not see any difference.

I also use KoolBloom (last few grows) in combination with the Bloombastic. KoolBloom, I use longer though, and less of it. I believe I've noticed an increase in terrapins. The aromas and flavors have been much better since introducing that.

I believe I'll keep KoolBloom and Bloombastic on the "always have" list :D

Kool bloom dry is the deal, instant results

I use liquid, but either way... that stuff honestly seemed to work well into my regiment! :)

The liquid Kool-Blom and the powder are different and meant for different periods of the plant's flowering phase. So keep that in mind when buying Kool-Bloom. But, like I said, I have not noticed any difference. I keep trying it on clones from the same mother to see if I get any different results....so far, no.
