They have all reacted really well with maxigro so far. I read an article by Martin Waterman in the growing edge magazine and it was his opinion that 9-3-19 is ideal for hydro bananas and ph right around 6.5 hence I started using maxigro since it was closest to that ratio and my basjoo is looking alot healthier now and the ventricosums our growing almost 2X faster than the potted ones. I've only been doing this since April and the big thing I have learned so far is that it is alot of trial and error and I definately want to try different techniques.
thats interesting to hear. i have my bananas growing in a rockwool, hydroton and coco coir medium. i was using GH micro, flora bloom and gro as well. i was pHing the nutrients to 5.6. I will try ur suggestions.
