I have been using this product for awhile now on my soil gardens, if you are not familiar it is an organic fertilizer. I use the Grow and Bloom.( 2 seperate ferts) The Age Old product line has just come out with a 2 part series called liquid soild A and B. Im wondering if anyone has tried to use the Grow and Bloom in a hydroponic system. Or has anyone tried the liquid soil?

RE: age old grow

I haven't tried the age old in hydroponics, but I do use compost tea and fish waste as my nutrients in hydroponics. It's referred to as 'bioponics' or 'aquaponics'. The key to using organics in hydroponics is the biofilter or grow bed. That's where the micro biology thrive. Without them it won't work.They convert the organic matter into plant food. It's also important to provide oxygen to your reservoir with air stones. Having fresh oxygen in your water will prevent the bad bacteria from growing.
