Ca. and Mag. are used by the same receptors in a plant.

If either is used heavily it blocks the other...

 

I like witches brew - Disolve Dolomite lime in Vinegar,

It adds both nutes.

Add brew to water and it has seemed to be aq pretty good balance of both.

Make your own mix.

Start with 3-1-1,bark based.

I personally use more like a 3/1/1/1 mix.

3 parts bark,1 part each of pearlite,pomice stone and peat.

I use more of the 1 stuff because the original mix doesn't hold water well.

 

See the posts here about 311 mixes using bark and potting soil.

 

Why I mix my own is that it lasts for YEARS with only topping off.

It's a cross between Hydroponics and a soil mix.

 

I really don't like Ocean Farms stuff.

Too many organics in it that break down.

Plants do great until the nutes in the soil run out (right about pod set).

 

My grow is just that My Grow...

 

I advise you to search out the posts about 311 and other versions of it.

Ya it costs a little more to make your own soil,But it lasts for years.

Set it and forget it. LOL

Topping the soil off every couple years is way more better than new soil every year.

I get it at the $.99 cent store.Probably made in China...

It might very well be extract of dog poop or?

It's been a while since I've seen it.

I tossed out the last empty can of it yesterday.I should have written down who makes the stuff.

I really like the stuff.

When the 99 has it I buy all I can pay for.

Try Hazel nut cooking spray not oil in your search-might get better answers.

It comes in larger cans than Pam etc.

2X larger.

99 cent store stuff sucks,the last 2 cans I had to toss out,Propellent was lost.

I tried just using the stuff inside the dead can,it needs to be sprayed,not used as an oil.

A spray lightly coats stuff,oil doesn't do what works best.

I understand your not liking some propelants.

A pic wouldn't do it justice-tastes so good it'll almost break your mouth. :)

 

Edit-

It has a couple of the main food groups in it-Bacon drippings and cheese.

Gotta use the hazel nut spray though.
