Default New here, and to hydro... fertilizer question

Hello everyone, I recently obtained some Nursery brand granulated fertilizer for a cheap price and I hope to get my simple Hydroponic Systems up and running within the next two weeks (I live her in the Bahamas)... I also purchased miracle grow but what I wanted to know is: Are granulated ferilizers like Osmocote and others ok to use in a bubler hydroponic system?

You need nutrients designed for use in hydroponics if you want to use them in a hydroponic system. Nutrients designed for soil grown plants lack many essential micro nutrients, and wont provide what the plants need. It's not that they are granular (dry), it's that the ones you mentioned (miracle grow and Osmocote) are not designed for hydroponically grown plants. There are plenty of dry/granular hydroponic nutrients on the market.
