Yu are right, I updated this thread with current and accurate info. My bad. And again, where did you learn that Grow More makes or did make Athena product? Show me and I will believe you. But don't just say some shit that can't be verified and then tell me I don't know what I am talking about or that I am someone I am not.
Oh, and according to the verifiable information I provided, even 5 months ago is after they fired up the Sacramento facility, which was in February I believe. So even 5 months ago, you were wrong. Or did you not catch that when you READ the article?

Bingo. It's pretty obvious that's the case, or someone who benefits from them.
I'm out, the drama is too much for me. 😁
As I was telling Anthem, you can find me on IG under n0name_james. I just started, got a little med grow. I mention none of these companies in my posts. I am actually trying out Growth Science nutes and Growers Choice led. Not sure what to think about either yet.

I wasn't trying to start drama. Initially, I was just trying to participate in the discussion. If you got time, check out my few pics on IG and let me know what you think. Feedback is appreciated. I always appreciate the knowledge share so any tips or suggestions would be great. I have been doing this as a hobby for a while now, and would like to try and go big, hence me getting licensed and following a lot of the bigger names in the industry. But not just Athena or Luxx. Anyone doing it is someone I can learn from.

I am very familiar with the podcasts but I also have knowledge about who makes the stuff for Athena. I realize everyone of the nutrient companies would like you to think they have the ability to manufacturer the products and blend to the end product but the truth is there are fewer than you might think. Secondly, go to their website and try to find out if they have a facility. They do not even have a listed address. Most of these nutrient companies are just middle men, I use the product and I have nothing against the line but I do firmly believe they are subbing out the manufacturing. If you really want to get down to the bottom of things start looking at the line of liquid and you will quickly see if you compare them to the grow more line they are watered down.
I agree and disagree with your statement here about companies not manufacturing their own products. I own a nutrient company here in New England (we are extremely small). I do not do the manufacturing; however I do make the the formulations and pick the ingredients myself. They are sent to a blending company in Connecticut. There they are ground, blended, bottled, and sent back to me to be labeled etc.

I just wanna say I recently switched to coco and am using Athena pro line. Good results so far coming from a soil grower. I’m saving a lot from my previous recipe. Spending about $700 per run. No point to go out and buy the ingredients separately to save a few hundred more lol too much time and effort.

Cost and simplicity are the reasons I am considering Athena. The only thing keeping me from committing is that I know a few growers that have said it is definitely a step back in terms of quality. Bud structure is great, has great bag appeal. But the terpene profile just isn't there. Maybe some of it is user error, but these folks are very experienced and I have seen the same strains grown with other nutrient lines and they had way more nose to them.

Have you noticed a loss in bud quality since switching to Athena?

Just FYI. I did a run with Growth Science so no one else on THC Farmer has too. The 5 bottle recipe appealed to me as it seemed simple and cost effective. but I found out their kelp product, Opulent Harvest, has 150ppm of copper, 40ppm of lead and about 6ppm of arsenic. I didn't even want to check the rest of their products, I was so disgusted when I saw that. I won't be using this line again and I recommend anyone reading this to avoid Growth Science products.

Peace.

Damn yeah I think the quality problem you’ve heard about Athena is because of the growers not the nutrients. The quality is just as good as my $4,000 recipe with 16 parts.

I switched to Athena couple months ago and pulled 17 units of straight fire from 9 600w LEDs at 80%
And that was with three strains in that room. It's a quality product and cheap that run cost me about $200 in nutrients. I've been growing indoor for over 20 years and owned 3 hydro stores so I know the business pretty well.

Good numbers. And it looks dank. I picked up the pro line and IPM not long ago. Have not started yet but I am looking forward to it.
