Yeah I've heard that its a good wetting agent, but I've never done it because I was afraid it would kill my beneficials. Ive used wet betty before but
didn't really see the need for it after a while. Molasses works well enough for me and it has appropriate sugars. That or just disturb the top soil a
I was thinking more along the lines of using it to kill spores not pests.
...To the op, yeah you need to use at least a light nutrient. If your going all organic try worm castings and seabird or bat guano. When the plant is
flowering or producing fruit they need phospates and potassium.
Yes, molasses is a great carb...or sugar to add when feeding beneficials and increasing size...it's awesome actually! I can't honestly, say one way or
another (on nutes and pests) when it comes to soil as I do not specialize in soil grows, but I do know that everything you add to soil should be less
by at least 33% when growing in hydro. However the only real difference IMVHO in soil vs hydro is the ph Balance. Now we're talking alkalinity vs.
Oh and yes, the assortment of pest that you may possibly acquire in soil (outdoors and maybe indoor soil grow, but not hydroponics) vs.
greenhouse/indoors, which obviously is much more controlled and can be re-created is insurmountable. You can really achieve greater beginnings with
hydro vs. soil IMHO.
Of course you always have the option of transplanting from soil to hydro...a huge factor
Wet Betty by Advanced Nutrients is just another one of their overpriced schemes IMO. SM-90 which contains coriander oil is a natural/organic deterrent
for pest, especially the classic mite which we all despise. I can't stand the peeps at Advanced Nutes...they suck! Now they have 5 (similar) products
that achieve the same results whether you grow in soil or hydro for everything. They used to be great...now they're just over priced and have
saturated the industry with their misleading ads IMVHO.
I remember back about 10 years ago when I could call the "guy" on his cell phone in Canada at Advanced and would get the Chemist (I won't mention
his/her name) on the phone....he/she was very helpful. Now, Advanced IMVHO, is just a piece a crap
I sincerely despise that company. Money only
matters now to Advanced and they're constantly having numerous products recalled because their "chemistry" was off, like with Pirahana and Tarantula
That's lame and a waste of money IMO
Who needs to buy 3-4 products from the same company that produce the same results
