Well I've finally started to like this master-blend stuff. I've used a lot of different formula's over the years, I've got half full jugs and jars of every kind of fertilizers, from organics, to foxfarms, to AN 3 part, to bush-doctor, to organics like, humus, worm casings, kelp meal, bone meal, crab meal and guano... The list goes on and on, but I seen the master-blend here, heard good things, and thought I would give it a try.

For those that don't know, master-blend is a formula. MasterBlend fertilizers have been the go-to Hydroponic and Garden fertilizers for commercial gardeners for a long time. ... It's unique composition, it is recommended to use the 4-18-38 together with Magnesium Sulfate (Epsom Salt) and Calcium Nitrate for the ultimate balanced water soluble fertilizer.

I did a bit of organics with these plants early on, but now I've pretty much going entirely over to the masterblend at this point, and they've really exploded in the last few days. Colors look great, just need to refine the mixture down a little better, and maybe start taking some logs.

Please share your experiences with this product, or share some thoughts on improving it's use.

Yea, so this shit should be virtually every time, correct? I'm just starting to wise up to that little fact, and if you go too strong, your going to murder them, so your kinda stuck doing the measure thing again.

I'm thinking concentrate the crap in a gallon jug, then figure out how much a cup of the stuff is, (60 grams, 60 grams and 30 grams) and go form there.
I do like it, and it allows for going lighter, and doing something else instead, like a humic acid wash, or some occasional kelp, or adding potassium bicarb, or potassium hydroxide toward the end. It certainly allows for constant manipulation of the recipe.
