Smile PPS-Pro VS. PPS_Classic

Hi all, it is a late evening in Lithuania and i am still (started in the morning) thinking and can not decide:

PPS-Pro or PPS-Classic that is the question.

For the latest choice i don't know why i have decided to use PPS-Classic, if you ask why i will take that the reason is: PPS-Classic a little bit more difficult and it seems that is better... Am I wrong?

Lets shake this thread with opinions and Help me and Yourself (if thinking about PPS) which to choose!

PPS-Pro or PPS-Classic

I would say PPS-Classic is significantly more difficult than PPS-Pro, unless my information on the two systems is wrong.

PPS-Classic involves dosing 5 different fertilizer mixes, and testing to establish dosing levels.

PPS-Pro involves 2 different fertilizer mixes (macro and micro). Dosing is based on tank volume, no testing prescribed.

I agree with dificulty differences but as you read carefully the instruction you can callibrate dosing more efectively
the main question is is there is a big differences betwen the output 9growt and health of the plants)

Fair, but your original post suggests that PPS-Pro is more difficult, rather than PPS-Classic.

That said, if growth is your goal, you want EI, not either PPS...

Both PPS systems are designed for low maintenance, not growth rate.
