I'm not familiar with those, but your logic makes sense to me. I'm a hydro grower myself, but I'm not sure about those nutes, ya know? Peace

Why are you using cal-mag?I use cal-mag in R/O & distilled water to put back cal in the water.Are the roots above the water white,if so the nutr are coloring the roots in the water.I use GH 3 part and diamond nectar and the roots that hit the water turn alittle brown from the nutr.PEACE

Cal-Mag works well to raise the pH. Humics work well to lower it. I've been using both of them in small amounts in this grow, when needed. Try some Millennium Ruby Fulvic, toke. It has like 100X the fulvic GH's DN does. that stuff is so weak it isn't even funny. The RF takes 5 mls per gallon..not..like 80 mls or something crazy like the DN. 420...If ya have any moving parts in your system be aware that the Liquid Karma is some dirty shit that has a lot of small particles floating around that will clog things up pronto. I recently tried using it at the rec of a friend but it clogged the float valve up on the 2nd day..not good. I'd love to inject some organic goodness in the mix...but not at the expense of stoppin the flow of nute water in the system!

Yes that DN is expensive too.A 15 gal res it takes 560ML DN .That's like two Qts. a grow.Where do you get the Millennium Ruby Fulvic?At 5ml a gal would be alot better.Thanks btdt. PEACE

Here's some info for ya bro. There's a tab for "where to buy"...check it out and see if anyone close to ya carries it. Otherwise i know you can find in a search online.

http://www.lifecircle.com/rf.php

good info, IMO.

GH oughta be shot for selling that watered down crap called Diamond Nectar. Again..a purty label hiding a weak/inferior product.

good luck bro

i use gh flora, cal mag, and liquid karma, with distilled water.... in a dwc bucket...the roots have a slight brown tinge below the water line but are white above...and since i dont have any moving parts it works out pretty nice..... this is my first grow though, so im thinking about using the advanced nutes 3 part and some of there crazy enhancers, but i dunno, im still debating.............
