Started Organic and eventually switched to synthetic. Seems to be the opposite of everyone else. If I were to go back to organic it would be dry amendment coco or living soil.
Organics are the best for me 🌱🌱🌱🌱👍😎
Im running synthetic and it’s going great so far! Would like to dabble in completely organic once I get more confident in my abilities and run 4 plants with two synthetic and two organic with the same environment and see the results!
Try using super soil, that is completely Organic all you have to do is add water
I don't see this as organic verses synthetic in most cases. You have organic where the microbes break down the material so the plant can eat. I see synthetic as an unnatural source of nutrients. All the bottles, and all the powders seem to be microbe driven or open access nutrients to the plants. I don't recall seeing anything synthetic for feeding. Inorganic. I think that might be a better word than synthetic. Sorry about jacking the thread, but this seemed like the best place to talk about this.
[@Scorpionleader] well said my friend and I couldn’t agree with you more. Unless people
believe that Synthetic nutrients aren’t actually nitrogen, phosphorus, Potassium, etc... the only true difference between “organic” and “inorganic” is the delivery system. Both plants use the same NPK to grow. They just get it from a different trucker. 🤔😏🙌👊🏻✌🏻
from my research I am understanding Synthetic nutrients to be chemical and salt based, which if done wrong could be very bad for the plants.
@Benny Da Barber Salts/minerals are naturally in the ground and available to plants without the need for processing them. Synthetic means made by chemical synthesis. The salt/mineral nutrients are not made, they are cultivated from the Earth. I think the word "synthetic" was named for salt/mineral plant nutrients by people that are weed snobs. The word just doesn't make sense to me in the application it is used.
@Scorpionleader I was in my local garden store yesterday looking for something, it was said to me they did not have what I was looking for. I was pointed to an alternative, when I read the label on the bottle the first thing I saw was “40% of the chemicals in this product is unknown.” That confirmed for me that there are some chemicals in different products and I need to be sure to investigate before I purchase anything.
full disclosur I am here to learn, I am very new to this so I don’t know a lot only what I have learned this far from reading and YouTube. What I do know is I don’t want to spend a lot of money if I don’t have to.
