What is in Veg+Bloom that makes a considerable increase in flavor and aroma (quality) compared to Jacks or other "raw salt formulas"? I thought Hydroponic Research Veg+ Bloom was a raw salt formula. Besides some slight additives like fulvic acid.I can second this...jacks (and other raw salt formulas - I've used a few and made my own) made some great bud and I've never had nutrient problems or poor yields with salt, but there is a considerable quality increase, in flavor and aromas, with veg+bloom.
I think what really takes the cake, though, is the quality of extracts when you grow with veg+bloom. The difference there is absolutely noticeable - everything tastes like it's live resin, very very loud.
