    Default How much PBP do YOU use?

    I see from my reading that many, if not most, of you use Pure Blend Pro from Botanicare. My question is, how much do you use?

    For purposes of easy comparison, I request you give just the formula for the flowering nute...not the vegetative formula.

    I have seen it mixed at the reccommended dosage, and it gave an EC of 2.8. This was 30mls PBP, 10mls of Liquid Karma, and 15mls of Sweet. Far too potent for all but a very few strains of cannabis. So, the question, how much do y'all use?

    It would be excellent if all answers were made by those using the entire Botanicare line, but all doses of any Botanicare product will be used to make comparisons--be sure to identify other products used with them.

    Thanks folks. This is something that has bothered me since being introduced to the products a couple years ago. Again, all input is appreciated.

    I use the standard dosing schedule produced by botanicare. It also appears in the American Garden Wholesale catalog.

    Please add your formula for dirt pf, that would be excellent.

    Pharma, do you use Liquid Karma and Sweet with it, or just the Pure Blend? And thanks for the input, both of you!!!

    Anyone else?

    well it depends on strain of coarse but in general i do about half dose at the beginning of flower (1/2 oz per gal). at the high point of flower i tend to go full strength (1 oz per gal) for several weeks. after about week 6 i cut down to 1/4 for about 3-4 waterings and then flush for the rest of the time. i've only recently started a sample run with sweet.

    I use Liquid karma, Sweet, Cal-Mag Plus, PBP Grow, PBP bloom soil formula, Earth worm and Bat Guano Tea (every second or third application during veg and every four weeks during bloom). I use clearex to flush at the end.

    I grow hydroponic. Since I grow 12/12 from seed I skip the veg formula and use only the bloom. When they are about a week and a half old I give them about a sixth of an ounce in a gallon of water. As they get older I bump up the amount I use. Once they have been flowering for a week or so I give them 3/4 ounce and then about a week after that they get the full ounce per gallon. I don't use any additives.

    Ok here we go. I found a link and a PDF of the PBP Feeding Chart.

    Pick the American Agritech/Botanicare Feeding Schedule Page 2 link for the PBP info

    Excellent Idea!!! I shoulda' thought of putting up the chart so everyone could compare their recipe with the "official" American Agritech recipe. Thing is, many folks find using the full "reccommended" dosage of Pure Blend Pro, Liquid Karma, and Sweet, makes the EC goes up to about forty-'leven. I should be specific and qualify the statement with the caveat, this has been the experience of several acquaintances of mine.

    Thanks, Pharma Pharmer, for posting the schedule. And thanks again, to you and EVERYONE, for adding Your input. I have learned much from all the comments.

    I decided PDF are a pain for some people to view so i converted them into JPG. They may be a little more difficult to read on some screens but they should be ok for most.


    EDIT: Hummmmm? I can't get the images to work here. They display fine on another forum but there's problems here.

    I don't use a TDS meter, just pH. Sorry.

    Default An - Gh -pbp

    hello pharmapharmer - Right now I'm using GH and it seems really good. Also with it - Liquid Karma is my fave additive. Although I do have Monster Bloom, Kool Bloom, Floralicious Grow & Bloom, and I just finished Earth Ambrosia & Nectar I think. That was for the roots. But why would I switch to PBP If I should. Or to AN what do you say?
