    Awesome product design by the industries best producer. General Hydro has “reinvented” themselves with their “general Organics” line. It came with plenty of base nutrients and all of the “essential” additives. (kelp, root enhancer, big bud, Humic acids, etc). I highly reccomend this product based on the flavorful flowers I was able to cultivate with them.

    This is an awesome kit that has everything you need for amazing plants. The 1 star reviewers complained about using in Hydroponics: I wouldn’t recommend organic fertilizers and nutrients for use in hydroponics. It doesn’t take an expert to figure out why your hydro system reacted poorly to the addition of pureed squid. Beginners hankering for some hydroponic action would be best suited with an Aerogarden, this kit would be best used for soil.

    I’ve done ~2 years of researching the best additives for plant health are and just about all of my “secret” finds are included in this kit (they are very upfront about the ingredients on each bottle, which is reassuring). This will not only improve the health of your plants, but will improve the health of your soil as well (which is both environmentally friendly and better for your wallet in the long run). Lots of time and research clearly went into putting this kit together in a cost effective manner.

    Really wish I had found this kit years ago, I would have saved much $! Get the kit, and if you are feeling frisky google the ingredients of the various additives and learn a thing or two on why your plants are so happy!

    Great Product, Need to Know Some Stuff…, October 30, 2012
    This review is from: General Hydroponics Go Box Starter Kit – Organic Fertilizer

    This review has been re-written because I learned from a lot of my mistakes and applied some incorrect fixes. This IS a great product, though. I’m just atoning for my previous review sins and hoping dead plant karma doesn’t catch up with me.

    I’m very sorry if I mislead anyone in my previous review.

    This is all you need to know about the product:

    1: This is an ORGANIC product… ORGANIC works differently than SYNTHETIC. With ORGANIC, you feed the MEDIUM, not the plant directly. ORGANIC is 100% dependent on BENEFICIAL BACTERIA/FUNGI to break the nutrient down for the plant, then the BACTERIA WASTE FEEDS THE PLANT. If you let your bacteria die, then your NUTRIENT WILL NOT BREAK DOWN and the plant will seem to have DEFICIENCIES, until the lack of intake causes MEDIUM TOXICITY, which will KILL your plants.

    2: If using tap, check to see if your city uses CHLORAMINE or CHLORINE. If you only have CHLORINE, then you can boil it out or bubble it out before mixing nutrients (after water has cooled if boiling). If your city uses CHLORAMINE, you CANNOT get rid of it without carbon filtration (preferably part of an R/O filter).
    You CAN’T boil it out. You CAN’T let it sit. You CAN’T bubble it out. —And if you use drops to get rid of it, they leave salts behind. Make SURE you know which your city uses. Also, be sure to tell your city how much chloramine blows and to request that they please stop poisoning the masses. The stuff is horrible.

    3: Do NOT pH your nutrient with this line. The bacterial waste will AUTOMATICALLY bring the pH to where it SHOULD be. If you are using distilled or R/O water, and fear acidity as low as 3.5, you can pH— BUT ONLY WITH ORGANIC pH PRODUCTS!
    Synthetic pH up/down will KILL YOUR BENEFICIAL BACTERIA just as badly as CHLORAMINE will. I recommend using Earth Juice pH Crystals. I DO NOT recommend vinegar, as it has a reputation for being a DISINFECTANT, and makes ZERO sense to me why you’d use a disinfectant as a natural pH’er. Your pH should be safe as low as 4.5 because it will pick up QUICKLY in the medium. Measure your medium pH in 2 days after feeding by digging out a sample from below the surface and mixing it with distilled water and letting it sit 10+ minutes before testing with a pH pen if you want to see what I mean. Don’t waste time pH’ing for R/O or distilled IF YOUR PLANTS SHOW NO PROBLEMS WITH IT.

    4: I highly recommend using Mykos with this product still, but DO NOT use Superthrive— it is anything but organic and may do more harm than good in an organic lineup.

    5: Remember: the name of the game is not killing your beneficials!!!
    -Avoid synthetic pH’er/vinegar
    -Avoid non-organic products in general
    -Avoid using tap water with chloramine unless it’s filtered through an R/O system WITH CARBON FILTRATION. R/O alone won’t cut it, but most R/O’s should have carbon filtration.
    -You have the option of brewing your nutrient first. I only recommend this for non-hydro applications, and even then- keep a non-brewed section (or majority) of your garden as a control to see whether it makes a difference to you. This stuff is as simple as mix and add. That’s all there is to it. Not keeping it simple with this stuff will beat you up really badly.

    6: If you’re in SOIL, use some pH BUFFERS.
    If you’re in SOIL-LESS MEDIUM, use MYKOS to aid in food uptake.

    7:Keep ROCKS or HYDROTON or GROW STONES at the BOTTOM of your pot for DRAINAGE.
    Use 15-30% PERLITE or GROW STONES with your medium for added drainage. Even though you can’t waterlog a plant in 100% coco, added drainage helps your medium dry out, which is GOOD.

    8: TREAT COCO LIKE SOIL IN THIS 1 REGARD: Let the top 1/2 inch of the medium DRY between feedings/make sure the pot is LIGHT before feeding/watering again, or you’ll risk unwanted build-up and stunted roots. Do NOT go by the “feed once/week” notion!! Feed each time it dries and if you’re overdosing the weekly recommendation as a result, then cut down the amount of nutrient so it balances out OR water between every 2 feedings.

    There!!! That should yield MUCH better results than my last suggestion. My research and advice was taken from synthetic growers that didn’t know organic theory which is why I F’d up. I’m gonna start following these “new” guidelines and I’ll be sure to post pictures when I’m done. Happy growing. Sorry again, anyone I screwed up from last time.
