Nug of the Month: Nov & Dec 2008, Mar 2009 – Plant of the Month: Oct 2008, Feb & May 2009
I was browsing around looking at nutes available in the national chains and ran across a few easy to find nutrients that could be used in a pinch. I know not everyone has easy access to to a hydro-store. These items are routinely stocked at Home Depot.
Anyway, here’s a few that I came across that might be useful.
Alaska Fish Fertilzer
Looks like it might work well as an organic veg nute: NPK = 5-1-1
Lilly Miller :: Alaska Brand
Miracle-Gro Liquid All Purpose Plant Food
Analysis is 12-8-4 so 50% strength is 6-4-2 , which is about the same as full strength Fox Farm’s Grow Big (6-4-4) so it should work for vegging.
Miracle-Gro® Liquid All Purpose Plant Food : The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company :
Miracle-Gro Liquid Quick Start
Analysis is 4-12-4 so 75% strength is 3-9-3, which is about the same ratio as full strength Fox Farm’s Tiger Bloom (2-8-4) so it should work for flowering.

Vigoro Root Stimulator
Might be useful as a starter nute or when transplanting. Here’s the blurb..
Vigoro® Root Stimulator & Transplanting Solution 2-5-2 helps plants overcome transplant shock and get off to a better start. Our gentle 2-5-2 formulation provides nutrients that promote new root growth for faster establishment. It also contains Vitamin B1, which many professional growers include in their starter solutions.
