**I have been trying to contact the company on both their website and Instagram with these questions but got no love. So who better to ask than ozstoners!**
So i picked up a 1 ltr set of the green diamond which is supposed to be a coco specific nutrient base.
I was a little surprised to see the cal/mag levels stated on the back.
While I'm certainly no expert in the matter, I can only base levels off of what I have used extensively, which is canna coco A/B, which I have found to work best in coco, duh? And Lucas formula, which has similar ranges to canna.
EDIT: was just comparing bottles again and found that green diamond doesn't have molybdenum in it, again(from all that I've learned), one of the essential nutrients for plant growth, huh?
There is no sulfur listed, as far as I'm aware it is one of the essential nutrients for plant growth? So where do plants get sulfur from with this base, printing mistake on the label maybe?
And then the potassium levels, from what I've read about feeding in coco, potassium levels should be at a lower concentration due to the way coco releases potassium, the high levels of potassium in GD combined with the low levels of Ca(too high k locks out Ca and vice versa as I understand it) seems strange again to me anyway.
Anyways the calcium and magnesium levels in the green diamond seem very low compared to other coco bases.
On thier feed chart their cal/mag product is called for until mid flower(from memory), but it costing 3x as much as about any other calmag, I for one won't be using it. Would a cal/mag product such as GH's be essential with green diamond?
I'm certainly not shitting on green diamond. Im just very curious how this base obviously grows great plants(only need to take one look on Instagram to see the evidence) with such different ratios to normal coco bases.
Hope that made enough sense.
Much thanks for any help.
