Doing my first grow now with dry amendments and loving it honestly. I put more in than I have too but I am pretty sure if I would just water would be good also. In flower at the moment and no big issues since the start of the grow. Will be starting week 3 soon and they are filling up and looking great. I heard dr earth and Gaia are pretty much the same thing. If you have any questions that I can help with just shoot anytime! Good luck with the grow!I think you are right.
I'm going to use some of the Dr Earths dry ferts as topdressing. Saw a great video by Stealth Grows where you can just use their vegetable and flower ferts.
I have 4 different strains in the pics atm.
