Brand Product Comparison
  • Product Name
  • Cannabis compatible NPK
    Having a nutrient be Cannabis compatible simple means the NPK ratio meets minimum demand by the plant. Usually a ratio between 2-1-3 and 3-1-2 would be considered suitable. The same ratio can also be used for many crops, including tomatoes, strawberries, etc...
  • 19:1 Nitrate:Ammonium ratio
    Nitrate (NO3-) versus ammonium (NH4+) and Urea. Having high Nitrate:Ammonium ratio in the nutrient formula is the preferred nitrogen type, compared to ammonium or urea. If your plants are grown in hydroponics, it is a basic essential that ratio is high to prevent toxicity and maximize absorbtion. Nitrate is Non-Volatile and most mobile in the soil with highest efficiency plant uptake. They promote the uptake of cations, such as K, Ca and Mg, are readily absorbed by the plant and do not need to undergo any further conversion, as is the case with urea and ammonium. Also no acidification, limits the uptake of harmful elements, and hiighest conversion of nitrates to amino acids occurs in the leaf.
  • Over 2% Soluble Magnesium
    Magnesium is an essential plant nutrient. It has a wide range of key roles in many plant functions. One of the magnesiums well-known roles is in the photosynthesis process, as it is a building block of the Chlorophyll, which makes leaves appear green. Having enough Magnesium means you do not need to purchase extra products to boost levels later, and also it can work even in tough mediums like Coco-Coir.
  • Over 1% Soluble Sulfur
    Sulfur is a vital nutrient in the plant, and is responsible for aromatics, resins and oils. Having over 1% ensures it will be suitable for any crop.
  • Complete Chelated Trace Elements
  • Amino Acid Chelated Trace Element
    Amino Acid Chelated nutrients provide obtimum absorbtion of metals for the plant, and provide other health benefits as well, while avoiding toxicity from EDTA chelates.
  • One Part Easy-Mix Formula
