For now i will be as i like simplicity even though i was on the maxi series before so barely a step above that for simplicity. But even after a couple cycles with megacrop i figure im starting to get the hang of it now.
I was always a consistently light feeder as im a non-drain to waste grower, and everything that goes in stays there till the end. So it has always been better to play it safe as buildup still could occur if i fed to heavy or for too long with the maxi series.
Megacrop on the other hand when running on the lighter side i find it throws out phosphorus deficiencies, and maybe possible mag as well but correction wise all you do is increase the feed rate and the plants sort themselves out. I have yet to run into an over fertilized situation but again started low and have been working my way up as far as feed goes, but even still it a lot less touchy compared to the maxi series.
Also i should note this last res change i haven't had any of that sediment/scum yet. Things that were changed were i light proofed the res a bit more in that my feed tube which was clear is now wrapped in black shrink wrap to prevent a bunch of light transmission getting in. Also ive been watering really heavily as of late where i have quite a bit of excess run off "that run back into my res" but due to that any of the sediment could be getting trapped up in the coco instead of chilling in the res.
Either way still need to do some testing with making a feed batch and having some control samples in jars and other conditions to see if there is a difference.
But yeah so far i'll be sticking with the megacorp till i learn the in's and out's of how it handles which so far is quite good for a one part.
