    Advanced Nutrients is pure hype and can be very confusing to boot.Far to many redundent additives in that lineup. GH products are very effective and less expensive.A very consistent and totally pleasing crop can be produced easily each and every time with GH. I have also found the DynaBloom to be a excellent stand alone in flowering.TIP- always use a potassium sulfate additive during late flowering because it is depleted very rapidly from the solution at this stage of ripening. Don’t be fooled into thinking your plants need PK, they don’t ; they need just the potassium. Take this advice your plants will have great aromas and wonderful tastes.

      You are absolutely correct about advance nutrients and also 100% correct about GH.

      I absolutely agree with your statement about advanced nutrients and Fox Farms too bad the scientists aren’t actual medical cannabis patients at Fox Farms they have wasted a ton of my money and time the only product they have to me that’s worth anything is Big Bloom and with Advanced Nutrients the only thing they have that’s worth anything is carbo-load everything else is too much in your plant over doing it over nuding it and you’re going to burn Cole from all those inorganic salts just use fish Emulsion kelp Big Bloom great white humic acid fulvic acid and carbo-load less is more keep all those chemicals out of your stuff the world will be a better place

      Lol its a safe bet you guys haven’t really used there line up or you wouldn’t be blasting them. They are top shelf. And ment for cannabis. Advanced and Canna are what all the top growers are running so why do you knock it? Is it because your a parrot and repeat what you’ve heard from other low level uneducated growers??? I just don’t get it in fact you only continue the bad reputation of the dump stoner stereotype.

    • Zombie February 4, 2018 at 6:04 am

      You can’t use any of that in hydro and hydro is where the big boys play.
