I'm giving it 3 stars because this is a very good brand and you get a lot in this box. So I hate to diss the company. I use the GH Up & Down set with no issues.I grow legal medical marijuana. For some reason with these nutrients (I always check pH and ppm every time) I was fighting deficiencies for weeks.I even started varing the pH, within range, some to make sure all the different nutes had correct pH to work with. Run off water (25% run off) was consistently high (7.5) which I've never had issues with. And I water throughly when fabric pot is dry. I even re-calibrated my pH meter to make sure that was working correctly.I had to switch to another entire set of nutrients halfway through my grow. Plants immediately balanced out after I started using new nutes and I've had no more issues.I still think it's a good box to try, if your wanting to try their Organic line up. I've seen great results in grow journals. I just personally didn't have good results with their Organic line. It could be the particular strain of plants, but I'm growing different strains and they all had issues.Also realize these are Organic. Not the same of there regular line up. Bottles are all a good size, though they should increase the size of the CalMag bottle since cannabis plants require a lot of CalMag.

The 5 stars is for the value. The GoBox is a great startup pack for people who want organic nutrients. I’m using this to feed cannabis. If you decide to buy, here’s some info from my experience:• I got burn at 75% from what is recommended on the feeding chart. 50% is as high as I go for the base nutes (BioThrove), but I’m at 25% for the supplements (smaller bottles). You wont need the CalMag if growing in soil.•You don’t have to PH if you’re mix is in the correct range of PPM/EC. It is my understanding that these organic nutrients will ‘fight’ itself into a mid 6 ph.My tap water is always 7.3-7.8, after mixing nutes it drops to 5.5-6.0. This was alarming at first and I’ve tried PHing the mix, but I’ve never noticed a difference as far as plant health. Currently, I mix silicon into the water first which spikes the PH to 9.5+ then the nutes drop ot to 6.3-6.5 so I’m digging that.So, expect a huge drop in PH, but as long as it doesn’t drop below 4.7 or so, you should’nt have PH problems. (**from my experience)I’m almost out of the BioThrive, but I plan on buying a larger bottle and stay with it. As far as the supplements, it’s hard to say if they are necessary. I plan on looking into other products.

This is an awesome kit that has everything you need for amazing plants. The 1 star reviewers complained about using in Hydroponics: I wouldn't recommend organic fertilizers and nutrients for use in hydroponics. It doesn't take an expert to figure out why your hydro system reacted poorly to the addition of pureed squid. Beginners hankering for some hydroponic action would be best suited with an Aerogarden, this kit would be best used for soil.I've done ~2 years of researching the best additives for plant health are and just about all of my "secret" finds are included in this kit (they are very upfront about the ingredients on each bottle, which is reassuring). This will not only improve the health of your plants, but will improve the health of your soil as well (which is both environmentally friendly and better for your wallet in the long run). Lots of time and research clearly went into putting this kit together in a cost effective manner.Really wish I had found this kit years ago, I would have saved much $! Get the kit, and if you are feeling frisky google the ingredients of the various additives and learn a thing or two on why your plants are so happy!

My order arrived very quickly. All bottles in my box were intact, and seals were very secure. I read many complaints of leaking, but I had no issues. I've used several different nutrient lines before. This kit has performed as well as or better than anything I've seen or used. My plants absolutely thrived in every phase of growth. Currently only half way through flower, and colas are already so heavy with thick, sticky buds I've had to tie several branches up help support the weight. Have had no pH issues requiring adjustment. A couple of the components smell pretty bad, but are tolerable, though I've kept it refrigerated to help prevent spoilage. I'm reordering now, and I highly recommend to either new or seasoned growers using soil substrate. You will not be disappointed!

So far I have had pretty good results, just be sure to flush every so often like you would synthetic ferts cause the bottle says to feed every feeding. If you go to their website they have a pretty good feed schedule.Do not mix this stuff way beforehand like you would with other fertspH is usually pretty right on but keep an eye on it.Complete line, but I would still recommend either mykos and xtreme tea compost brew or recharge to supplement the soil with healthy microbesDo not use water that has been treated with chlorine or chloramine kills off all the good stuff.As many mention this stuff smells, but all organic matter smells so get over it if you want to use organic supplements.. I mix mine up in the garage and carry to designated spot.

This is by far the best nuets for MJ. No chemicals! Roots after 3 weeks have 28 inch fish bone roots. Clones love the light solution. E mail me for more info. Bulletproofmike@hotmail.com. I'm in the veg stage and the leaves are almost 2 inches wide and they are going nuts for week 5. I can see I will yeild 4 lbs or more per plant outdoor. This is some phenomenal stuff. The marine product is awesome too. Black diamond I use very little. For the price it's worth it. The other commercial nuets are expensive and damn near the same after doing a analysis with a commercial grower. PH is perfect and the other stuff goes up,and down with the PH. Very easy to use and your competition will be making less coin. You will feel like the king when you use this stuff. Peace.

Bought this product intending to grow medicine for myself. I only want to use organic supplements that are not mixed with harmful chemicals and dangerous metal salts. I think the Bio Weed seaweed supplement was chemical free, but all the other bottles contained sodium molybdate, potassium sulfate, phosphoric acid, etcetera. It is confusing for the company to be called "general organics" and yet purvey products that say on the bottle "not to be used for organic food production"I tried to use these products and ended up burning every single one of my indoor plants to a crisp. It's not even safe to dump this stuff down the drain i'll have to bag it up carefully to make sure it doesn't spill into the groundwater.

Great product set.I used this to grow some very nice Tomato, green pepper plants, onion, lettuce, and squash plants.works great no problems with using it with coco coir medium, I grew my plants in a grow tent with a Spectrum King LED closet case 140.This stuff worked so well my plants took off fast even from seeds, I transplanted them outside they are some of the healthiest plants in my garden.I'm looking into using these same products with an indoor ebb n flow, deep water culture, and a drip water system. I am currently starting to invest in these and will be using this product unless I discover something better.

I have been using this line of nutrients for about four weeks and am LOVING it so far. I also help "bring alive" my organic nutrients by adding Mycorrhizae, and aerating the nutrients with a air pump and air stone, (Once added to the water of course). One secret that I have learned over the years is to half what the nutrient chart says to add! My plants are doing great! Almost 3x better then my friend who is using Fox farm xD. The only downfall to working with the organic nutrients its the DAMN SMELL! Its pretty bad. Over all I say Five stars! BUY this product. A friend is switching from Advance after seeing these results ;)

So I bought the General Organics GO BOX. I feel for a starter kit, it’s missing a couple things. First, there is no paper feeding schedule and the one on the back is ruined. It has a big sticker and the box is damaged so I can’t see it. Most ppl that buy a starter kit don’t know what quantities of nutrients to mix. Second, there is no measuring spoons, you have to provide a measuring spoon/cup or a small syringe, so we can measure the proper amounts of nutrients.Ps. Came as described awesome thanksSo I tried to call about a paper feeding schedule and he staight said no. Lol
