I've been listening to Danko question all the top growers and breeders for a while now. All the "big boys" use dirt for their personal. Hydro gives you bigger, faster buds but, dirt is supposed to give you tighter, tastier and more aromatic buds. I started growing with hydro but i can't seem to get those tight dense buds i like. It's been about 7 years now and I've tried about everything so I'm gonna take the next step and see how that goes.
