So I forgot what I was doing but I came across this website http://www.kelp4less.com and I looked around for maybe 10 minutes and realized. I could buy everything I need from this website in soluble powders for a fraction of the cost at buying expensive ass branded products like Advance Nutrient or General Hydro. You can buy like pounds of Soluble nitrogen and Potash for like $20/LB . 1 pound for $20. you could spend about $100 at this website and have the same amount of nutes in raw form as $500-$1000 in bottles of liquid nutes from companies like AN, GH and many others. I’m sure many people have known this. I just didn’t know how easy and cheap it was too find these Ingredients and How easy it is to obtain them.

I am never buying a Humic acid product again after seeing this website. They sell an 80% humic acid powder. 1Lb for $12. at my local hydro shop NBT sells a 30% humic powder. probably only 8oz for probably $30. Amazing. Seeing this website just turned my world upside down when it comes to buying nutrients.

Anyone else care to comment on this??

It’s legit and there are many more places like it

Okay yea you spend 20$ for a pound of NPK product or you can spend $60 on all of the elements you need and fine tune your own forumla and then you there have over 3-4 pounds for less than what it cost too buy something like maxi bloom and maxi grow

The bottom line is that it is cheaper to buy the raw material and make your own bases, sometimes almost 500% CHEAPER.

No. not at any garden store. even at my local hydro shop all you can get is expensive ass Branded products. also OSH doesn’t carry any raw material and they are an orchard supply I don’t think anywhere close to me sells this stuff

Yea some of the stuff if overpriced but I wouldn’t say half. why are you trying to shut my point down. I am simply stating that the raw material on that website like the Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, Calcium, Silica, are all MANY MANY times cheaper than branded bottled products.

When you walk into your local hydro shop and grab a bottle of AN about 10% of your money is going toward the material you are actually using and need. the other 90% you are paying for Filtered water, BRAND recognition, Advertising, fancy little art on the front of the bottle that they had to pay a professional artist to make.

So that is all I am trying to get across.

It also depends on if you want to go through the process of doing it all this way. I am not blasting anyone or any nute companies. All I am saying is that if you like learning and experimenting, which I love, then it would be cheaper to get raw material and have fun mixing and experimenting different batches of nurients. If you are Lazy or you dont have the time, or you have the money and would rather just buy a bottle and go then by all means go for it. but some people that are new into botany and growing plants and pot are all led to believe by these big companies that it is the only way to go. BUY OUR BOTTLES PRODUCTS. They don’t tell the buyers that you can go get Organic N, P, and K powders and a fraction of the cost. they would lose a small customer base.

Bottom line and point I am trying to get across, Some people don’t search around and don’t know that these powders and raw materials are easy to get and easy to make concentrates at the fraction of the cost of bottled nutrients

OP, I just wanted to give you kudos for posting finds like this. Someone previously said that the cannabis nutrient market is one of the biggest ripoffs, and quite frankly, it really is. I don’t even know where to begin. I mean, there are companies who put together some of the weirdest NPK ratio’s in their base nutrients, which requires you to buy another one of their thirty to sixty dollar bottle of watered down, overpriced, crap. From a marketing perspective, it is smart because these companies make A LOT of money from this business model.

When it comes to your newb, new, greenhorn, cannabis grower, 9/10 times they haven’t yet obtained even a basic level of botany knowledge and instead they learn as they go. The thing is, they fall for this exact thing. Instead of buying good nutrients, they fall for gimmick art logos, false statements, and compartmentalized nutrient lineups that have saturated the shelves of hydro stores all over the US.

When I started growing I was not that bad, but looking back I wish I had obtained the knowledge I know now, (it would’ve saved me some money). I mean, there are nutrients you can buy at Wal Mart or Home Depot that will grow better cannabis than your “best” lineups that cost hundreds of dollars can. A lot of these new growers truly don’t take enough time to understand basic Macro, Micro, and secondary nutrients and they are the ones who feed the machine.

Sorry for the rant.

Agreed. A lot of new growers and greenhorns are minds to be molded and if they aren’t wise enough to clear the smoke away themselves they will end up being told wrong information and fall for horrid marketing gimmiks that cost them hundreds and hundreds of dollars. The products from companies like AN and Cyco might work but they are BS marketing schemes. They can easily package their product together and have at minimum 2-3 products that you need to buy instead they Rip their NPK’s apart package the rest in different bottles with different micro nutes in each bottle then slap a $30 price tag on each bottle and BAM! They made about $300 on 10 products that could easily be put into 2-3 products and sold for maybe 3-4x less and still at a profit.

This cannabis growing industry is all about making money. and a lot of people are stoner potheads that buy into and others just don’t really care because they make so much money off their crop the price for the nutes is meaningless.

So I forgot what I was doing but I came across this website http://www.kelp4less.com and I looked around for maybe 10 minutes and realized…….I could buy… ]]>
