Hello guys,

Well, I took a break for a while and wanted to start back up with a grow.

So i started with two regular marijuana seeds nothing special just some regular.

I started with Foxfarm hydro nutes and i am at the point where i need to switch to flowering.

Well, I just noticed the tiger bloom i have that is half full is no longer good. So instead of messing the grow up i just redid the past week to get buy until i get some more tiger bloom.

Well, since i will be at the store i should just get new grow, bloom and tiger bloom but that will be around 60 dollars and really do not have that extra cash.

So i am here to ask since i used fox farm nutes for the vegging stage can i use something like Dyna-Grow for flowering stage?????

I also have the Fox Farm trio additives which i was just reading where people have said you can use the tri additives of fox farm and use them with Dyna Grow. Is this true?

I was thinking of switching nutes anyways once i ran out of Fox Farm just to see a difference since Fox Farm is all i have ever used...

Can anyone give some guidance or advice here.

I would like to start the switch over to 18/6 but since i just redid last weeks feeding i have some time but would like to get going by weeks end.

I am home today and can take a ride to the store for dyna grow if i can use that inplace of fox farm for the rest of the grow.

Thanks!

Yes, you can change your brand of nutes. I haver never had any problem doing that. I really like GH Flora series. It comes in 3 parts, but you can buy just the micro and bloom and use the Lucas formula if you like.

I don't understand this: "...I would like to start the switch over to 18/6...". If you are switching to flowering, you want a 12/12 li8ght schedule, unless it is an auto and then 20/4 is best the entire grow.

ops, i meant 12/12...

I just cannot decide on GH flora seris or Dyna Gro now...

Like you said hemp goddess, i can just get the gro and bloom of GH and use the lucas formula.

I thought I heard that you can use Dyna Gro and the three additives from Fox Farm which are the beastie, open sesame and cha-ching but not sure going to do a search on that next.

I was all set to get the Dyna but then read a bit which just put me back to deciding GH or Dyna.

I do not mind Fox Farm but want to try different this time as i said the last time i bought Fox Farm once i run out going to try something different or simplier.

like i said right now i am just growing regular street bud nothing special.

kind bud,

Thanks for the input.

The only thing is at the only store i can get nutes from only has Dyna Gro Bloom and Dyna Gro Grow. No other Dyna products that i see unless they have them in a different section on their web page.

Not only that i just saw GH Micro "HardWater" is 29.75 a gallon. Plus the GH Bloom is 10.00 a quart. If i get the gallon that would be just about 30.

So if i get the Dyna Gro i would be at 40 with tax!

Plus, i have Fox Farm beastie, cha-ching and open sesame which i just read you can use with Dyna Gro series but not sure how good it is...

I really like the General Hydroponics Flora nutes with DWC. I have tried the Dyna Grow and did not have that great of luck with it in hydro. I do know though that Kindbud kicks butt with it--she has amazing plants.

I'd go with the Gh for dwc I have no experience running it in a hydro situation in soil it rocks but I'd take hemp goddess word on the hydro I know if the dyna gro sits it has salt build up in the bottom I dont know about using it in hydro so go with the gh :48:

Well,

I went and got the Dyna gro bloom and grow.

I also have Fox Farm cha-ching, beastie bloomz and open sesame.

I have not been able to find by searching google for anyone who uses dyna gro bloom and grow with Fox Farm additives. Not sure how to do it... should i follow the dyna gro schedule and then the fox farm schedule for adding the additives??

If using fox farm additives is not a good idea then should i use cal mag or dyna gro mag pro?

I know kind bud told me to use Dyna Mag Pro but i really do not want to buy more anything or mix a bunch of stuff.. trying to keep it simple.

I also see that people are using Aquashield with dyna gro nutes. Is that what i should do since i am using a DWC system??

I know protekt is a silica that helps the cells and heat/cold shock but does it help roots like aquashield?


Since i want to order Aquashield now i was thinking to either get Protekt or Mag pro. which is more beneficial?
