Hi all - I've been looking at all sorts of information and promo materials about hydroponic systems and nutrients. There are many more different brands and types of hydro related equipment and supplies than I first expected, so I've been asking around to see what seems to work best for most people, and perhaps which products to avoid. This hydro stuff tends to be pricey, so I want to start off with as good a choice as possible. I happen to actually live near a company called "General Hydroponics" (near Santa Rosa, Cal), they produce their own hardware, and highly specialized nutrients. A number of people I've talked to seem to like their products, especially the nutrients. But then again, looking online and at various catalogs, there are lots of other nutrient options to consider. So . . . any thoughts or experiences with hydro equipment and nutrients would be very much appreciated - thanks!
