    Looking at the H&G chart you reduce the amounts of basic nutes when you run shooting powder (P&K) for the last few weeks. Seems like the ratios of N P & K would be fine then. It worked really well for me on my last grow but it was ebb & flow so things may be different for a UC system.

    Nitrogen seems to be far more available given the aeration and water movement in the UC....it may take MOAB instead of shooting powder or some other 0-XX-XX solution to help offset the high N availability caused by the combo of UC and H&G.

    Dunno.

    I REALLY like what shooting powder and bud xl do to my buds. Adding those to my line up (used liquid kool bloom and kushy kush once with similar but not as good of results) made buds as big as a baby's forearm and almost hard enough to drive a nail with. I saw about a 30% jump in yield. If I could replicate that quality and get the benefits of rapid growth that I've seen in successful UC grows I'd be all over it.

    MOAB sounds like it's much like shooting powder. I'm not experienced enough to be the first penguin off of the ice in trying it out if and when I get a UC system. I'm hoping some other folks have taken that gamble and won and want to pass on the info.:)

    MOAB is similar to the Shooting powder...Just a bit heavier in the P and K.....and a lot cheaper.......Cleaner tasting results with Shooting powder............As long as your PPMs are in the right range, (800-1000 is usually a safe range for all strains) You shouldn't be afraid to try any late bloom booster....I think they are an essential additive in the late bloom phase.......Different strains sometimes like different enhancers......It's cool to find your recipe through trial and error........Fun stuff.........Peace

    Yes I have but it's not a half dose you only want to cut part A by about 20-30% starting at about week 3 1/2 of bloom. Hope that helps.
