I have been watchig these videos to dial in all the technicle info for hydroponic growing.
This is good instruction.I am impressed with the npk raw soluble fertilizers too.Seems they do not leave out a single popular item or supplement to make a great hydro fert.
I bought the grow formula along with several very nice additives and suppliments.
Definately not overwhelming info either.
Seems guy is a grow Wizard!!
Npk ,ppm,ph and all that stuff...simpler than I thought

These videos also taught me to never overlook the power of seaweed,aminos,enzymes,b1 and the list goes on ...fulvic and other humic acids,
Power of foliar feeding mother plants before cuttings.....

There is about 2-3 hours of video I imagine.
I watched nearly all of them last night.
Lots of tips to utilize different nutrients at different times.
I find their raw solubles easier to comprehend than all of the other liquid nutes out there.
They have silica,aminos,enzymes,b1,.yucca..to name a few.....seaweed which can be mixed 2/5 with fulvic acid and yucca wetting agent for a great foliar spray on waxy leaf species like perhaps pines.They go in depth how to make plants actually utilize more sun energy??
If maybe you cannot provide quite enough......I know I seen that somewhere last night.
Also explains how to identify a fee of the most common deficiencies like magnesium,Nitrogen,iron.
Was A grey areafor me.And how to correct them quickly.
Little did I know my rain water was dipping down to ph 4.0 after adding the dyna gro!!
I have magnesium and a general nitrogen deficiency in some of my trees...not to mention generally weak and prone to illness from not correct nutrients.
Going to give it all I got this Winter and next season.Bought loads of seed so I can select and have variability in seedlings.
Then will try cloning according to his instructions and tips

Goes in depth of essentially what High Brix means.From what I gathered is just the most active a plant can be to create sugars?? And syrup/sap...
In the plant ...sais’themore the better.
As Chemically? Active with processes as the plant can be.

All my ramblings about this stuff is right here on Bnut. You just have to look, or care.

Old news.....

There are much better methods now. Just have to know where to get them. Cheaper too than all the supplements that do nothing. Trust me.

Read the labels.

Active ingredient - Blah Blah 0.004%
Inert ingredients - 99.996%

cost 34.00:eek::eek::eek:

What the video series?
I am beginning to pay attention to ph for the first time ever.My rain water phd’ to 4.0 after adding a basic hydro nutrient.
So bought my first ever ph Dropper style kit.I prefer it over the darn ph meters that seem to require so much maintanance.

I believe I an learning from npk university.
I was always daunted from all the different products and goofy names with cartoon characters on them.

I am going to start there.
Seems being raw solubles is cheaper without alk the mixing costs by other manufacturers

I can almost guarantee you that Ph is not your problem...

it may be a nuance, but Ph is not gonna save dying trees.

You could put fir bark in a soil mix and not need to fertilize for two years just due to the bark decomposing. Fertilizer and all its cousins make thriving trees stronger and allows more work than weak trees.

I pegged this as magnesium and nitrogen being locked up somehow.
They get fertilized every watering hydroponic rate dyna grow.....do you think fungal.
Or perhaps fungal because of an overall weakened tree .I wont speculate because I just came on to deficiancies last evening !
These shoots are only a month old on fresh layers/bottom of whip layers.
A bit dissapointing to say the least.I thought I would be hedging these by now:D
They are going into the ground for a while.
These are cool to plant on saucers or something

Out of 20 or so ...about half are dreadfully weekened and just halted out of the blue.
The ones above about 10 or so are doing considerably better.
