Pros: Effective, easy-pour spouts, understandable mixing chart
Cons: Synthetic, cost
Emerald Harvest's 3-part nutrient system is very easy-to-use. The mixing chart on the back of the bottles are easy to match measurements (mL) and most importantly understand. I have not had any issues with plant loc-out while following the schedule exactly. The effect I have noticed is superior plant development as compared to traditional organic gardening; which is no surprise.
The MSDS sheets are easily available for download on Emerald Harvest's website. After reading the MSDS sheets, I will recommend wearing re-useable gloves while handling & mixing. The ingredients contain mostly nitrates with some urea in it which can be an irritant to some, hence the advice to wear gloves.
I have used this system in conjunction with a root probiotic (review to come) and some homemade worm leachate. All together with superior genetics will result in heavy yields and a simple growing season.
This is an on-going review because this product is currently in-use. I will update this post after harvest for a full report on this product's effectiveness into final stages, as well as any issues/alterations that may come up.
Pros: Recyclable bottle, easy to follow instructions
This product is still being tested by me. Its instructions indicate the product can be used in seed germination as well as throughout the plant development; I intend to try both. This review is based on Bio-fizz being used in the "bloom and ripening stages" with fantastic results. I was also using a host of other products in conjunction with this product, therefore I cannot give all the credit to Garden Prodigy's Bio-fizz. Over the winter, I will be using this product in an isolated grow to see how it performs on its own. Leave a comment below to place a bet on what you think will happen!
I have finally tried Bio-fizz in seed germination and had fantastic results! After soaking in the instructed 48 hours (not a minute more or less), all four seeds had split their shells and were ready to pop. I placed the seeds in Hydroton, netcups, and plain tap water. The root development was explosive which is either due to the genetics of the seeds or bio-fizz's effect on the seed shells.
My first go at cannabis seeds left a bad taste in my mouth. I tried 20 seeds, at $10 a pop, and only managed to get 1 plant out of it; 5 seeds cracked. #StillHurts
It took scrubbing the seeds with peroxide a bacteria bath for those seeds to crack. The fact this product made it easy and successful the first 4 out of 10 seeds with no effort is exactly what this product advertises and it's exactly what happened. 5 stars!
Pros: Dense yields, easy to measure/pour, 8oz lasts a lot of waterings
Cons: Live bacteria/gloves required
I introduced Impello Biosciences - Tribus Bloom in the first 2 weeks of flowering. The overall resin production and density changed noticeably on the plants. Impello's website states that Tribus Bloom™ increases flower quality and yields by maximizing nutrient availability and promoting growth through billions and billions of plant-microbe interactions. Due to harvest results, I have concluded that this is true. I will be trying Tribus Bloom in a kratky method over the winter to see exactly how this product can work in a side by side. I will update this post when completed. Have experience with this product?! Got questions?! Lets chat in the comments below!
