I just finished a run using MegaCrop start to finish, and while I am fairly pleased with the outcome I do have a question and some feedback.
Question : How in the hell are people not getting sediment in the rez when using MegaCrop? I've seen several people mention that they have seen no sedimentation when using it, but that is absolutely not my experience at all. In my experience, there is more sediment from MegaCrop than anything else I've ever used in a rez. This may turn out to be a dealbreaker for me, actually. When using 3g/gal up to 6/gal I get a light layer of sediment/sludge at the bottom of the rez after about 48 hours on average, which grows progressively worse over time. Doesn't matter if it's my main rez or some other container, whether I use H202 or not, whether the rez is aerated or not, whether there is a circulating pump in the rez or not, or if I just mix it up in a jug and let it sit for 48 hours. All of those scenarios result in sludge settling at the bottom of the rez. What the hell am I doing differently than everyone else there?
Also, there is absolutely not enough mag in MegaCrop for me to grow my standard strains in coco dtw with COB LED lighting without supplementation. MegaCrop has less mag than Jacks or MaxiBloom, for instance, and in coco under LED I usually add up to 1g/gal of Epsom even with those. Having said that, supplementing MegaCrop with Epsom worked fine, and didn't take much to keep the girls happy.
Quality wise, I am well pleased. The finished product turned out quite nice. Very frosty and potent, especially for a first run with an unfamiliar nute line.
I think I could really get to like this stuff if it didn't add to my workload cleaning out the rez and plumbing two or three times a week. As a nearly crippled person dealing with several issues that result in chronic pain, and growing exclusively for personal use, there's only so much work I am willing to invest in growing.
