Should I use hydroponic nutrients or organic?
Answer: You can use hydroponic nutrients in soil and you can use organic nutrients with hydroponics mediums. Hydroponic nutrients will get you a higher yield but the flavor & aroma will not be as good. Organic nutrients increase the oil production in the plant making them smell & taste better. Both are known to clog systems with poor water circulation or low oxygen or a system that is poorly maintained (keeping your system cleaned & making sure it is working properly). You can make a Hydroponic nutrient smell & taste better by adding organic additives.
