FlairForm CMX - 1L / 5L / 20L | Calcium, Magnesium & Iron AdditiveRegular price $29.90 Sale price $20.30 Save $9.60
The deficiency of calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg) and iron (Fe) can cause common symptoms such as blossom-end-rot (death of the end part of fruit), upward leaf curl, withered flower/fruit set, interveinal chlorosis and the death of terminal buds and root tips. If the above mentioned symptoms are present, be sure to check pH and humidity levels. Excessive pH can cause both calcium and iron to become insoluble. Excessive humidity restricts the distribution (“translocation”) of nutrients throughout the plant and is a common cause of calcium deficiency. Avoid using this additive with excessively hard make-up water because it can exacerbate the build-up of white "scale". This can result in dripper blockage and a reduction in the amount of available sulfate - an essential plant nutrient.
CMX is a cal-mag additive used for preventing nutrient deficiency symptoms. Unlike other brands, CMX also contains all trace elements (Fe, Cu, Mn, Zn, Mo, B). Did you know most deficiency symptoms are due to trace element deficiencies?
Deficiency symptoms are all too common in growing systems that contain heavy feeders or suffer from lack of maintenance or poor quality waters. CMX protects plants against problems such as:
CMX contains 6% calcium, 2% magnesium, 0.2% iron EDDHA (NPK 4-0-0), and all essential trace elements (copper, zinc, and manganese as EDTA, molybdenum, and boron).

FlairForm pH Electrode Storage - 250ML | Ideal for Bluelab & Other pH MetersRegular price $10.00 Save $-10.00
Dry storage of pH electrodes is the most common cause of pH meter failure in hydroponics!
“pH electrodes last several years when stored properly”
pH electrodes should be stored in a specialized solution when not in use. This helps prevent dehydration of the glass electrode and porous frit (or wick) while preserving the electrode’s filling solution. pH buffers and distilled water are not suitable for storing pH electrodes as they can upset electrode calibration. Electrode storage solutions are carefully structured formulations that do not interfere with the chemical composition of the liquid/gel that is contained within the electrode.

Fill your recirculating hydroponic system reservoir with water and add equal amounts of House & Garden Aqua Flakes Part A and House & Garden Aqua Flakes Part B to the tank to achieve the required strength and mix well. We recommend using a syringe or beaker for accurate measurement of this product and a CF/EC/PPM meter such as the Bluelab Truncheon to check the TDS (nutrient strength). Adjust as necessary. Next, add any additives and boosters you wish to use and again mix well. Adjust the pH of the solution to the required level using pH up or down as necessary. We recommend the use of a pH meter such as the Horticare pH meter to help accurately set the pH to the required level. As with all nutrients, additives and pH adjustment products, avoid contact with skin and eyes and wear suitable protective clothing. Store at a temperature between 7C and 30C.
Both parts of a 2-part nutrient are designed to be used together in equal amounts. Using only part A or part B, or using them in unequal amounts will result in a nutrient solution which is not properly balanced. This will almost certainly lead to your plants suffering from deficiencies.
As with all nutrients, boosters and additives, never mix them together in their concentrated form (i.e. straight out of the bottle). Always add each nutrient, booster or additive to your reservoir or feed water in turn, giving the solution a good stir to mix it in before adding the next one.
Please ask a member of staff for the recommended nutrient strength and pH range for the particular type of plant that you wish to grow as different types of plant have different nutrient strength requirements. The ideal nutrient strength may also vary depending on the growth stage of the plant.

CLONING ACCELERATOR – Foliar Spray
Foliar feeding is a technique of feeding plants by applying liquid fertilizer directly to their leaves.
Without an established root zone, you need a high quality foliar spray to supply your plants the nutrients they need for healthy growth and development.
Foliar feeding is a technique of feeding plants by applying liquid fertilizer directly to their leaves. When a part of a plant is cut, and this part has no root system, the ability of the cutting to get nutrients from its surroundings becomes minimal. In order to supply nutrients for the plant, a suitable foliar spray should be applied.
Cloning Accelerator delivers key nutrients and trace elements through foliar spraying of the leaves. It’s perfectly balanced formula has been specifically created to deliver the right amount of ph adjusted nutrient to young and delicate plants.
Cloning Accelerator contains Humic Acid which research has shown when foliar applied can boost photosynthesis, improve growth and development. It also contains crucial elements which are designed to restore any discolouring which may occur during the life of the cutting.
Speeds root development and early establishment
Chelated minerals formulated as a RTU Foliar Spray for maximum absorption
Protects young plants from deficiencies

GO GREEN – Prevents and Restores Common Deficiencies
Are plant deficiencies destroying your crop?
Whatever your growing medium, plants require a mix of nutrients to remain healthy. Deficiencies arise when there is an inadequate supply of nutritional elements. Plants can suffer various deficiencies, both indoors and outdoors. Most of the classic deficiency symptoms you may encounter often manifest as foliage discoloration or leaf stains and deformity.
So, what are the most common deficiencies?
Nitrogen – Is directly responsible for producing chlorophyll and amino acids, and it’s also vital to the process of photosynthesis. Plant tissue is also made up largely of nitrogen, meaning that growth would halt fast in the event of a deficiency.
Signs to look out for – Older, bottom leaves turn yellow and leaf stems turn purple. Eventually, all foliage yellows and leaf drop is severe.
Calcium – Is vital for your plants growth. It aids in the absorption of other nutrients, preserves cell structure, and facilitates photosynthesis.
Signs to look out for – Symptoms often appear quickly. New growth develops small brown spots that never disappear, while growth is stunted and flower development slows dramatically.
Magnesium – Activates enzymes and is an essential building block of chlorophyll, and is essential to the absorption of light energy. It helps enzymes make carbohydrates and sugars that are later transformed into flowers.
Signs to look out for – Symptoms typically present 3 – 4 weeks after deficiency begins. Interveinal yellowing and rust spots appear on older and middle age leaves. Leaf tips turn brown and curl upwards. Brown spots increase in number and size and leaves dry and die in extreme cases.
Iron – Is essential for electron transport and chlorophyll biosynthesis. It is therefore required for photosynthesis and respiration.
Signs to look out for – New leaves turn bright yellow. Eventually more and more leaves turn yellow and develop interveinal chlorosis
PREVENTION IS KEY.
The Professor’s Go Green is used to PREVENT and RESTORE common deficiencies in plants.
It is a scientifically formulated liquid fertilizer, with added Calcium, Magnesium, Nitrogen and Iron which help reduce plant discolouring, rust spots and tip burn.
Go Green provides protection for your plants against excessive nutrient salt build up, environmental stress and lack of chlorophyll, ensuring lush, dark vigorous growth.

Superior Weight Booster
When you initiate flowering (12/12) there is a massive surge in the plant’s requirement for potassium. Lowered potassium levels will simply slow down a plants growth rate to match the available potassium. More available potassium equals more flowers. Supplement your nutrient solution with PROFESSIONAL POTASH for increased potassium levels and maximum finished weight.
Why don’t nutrient manufacturers add all of this extra potassium in their nutrient mix? They can’t for two reasons. The most important is that everybody’s system is different. Nutrients are made to cope with a wide range of conditions and could easily become out of balance. Problems could occur because hydroponic systems are managed by electrical conductivity rather than chemical analysis. Adding the extra potassium is really fine tuning. The second problem is a chemical one. Concentrated nutrients start to behave differently as the concentration increases and can start to salt out, creating insoluble compounds that can’t be used by the plant. We recommend PROFESSIONAL POTASH as an addition to your flowering nutrient for record breaking yields. Feel the weight of a bottle of PROFESSIONAL POTASH compared to our competitors, we put more in so that you get more out of your crop. Add PROFESSIONAL POTASH to fresh water at required rate first, then add your flowering nutrient and other additives. Pure elements in ultra pure water.

To produce a heavy Laden Harvest a plant must first develop a profuse & powerful fruit bearing structure.
Nitrozyme has been proven to effectively relieve stress, provide a more vigorous and healthy plant, which increases yields and profits.
WHY USE NITROZYME?
Crops under normal growing conditions achieve only 30-40% of their genetic potential. Growing conditions such as low or high moisture levels, hot or cold temperature variations, soil imbalance and nutritional deficiencies contribute to plant stress and result in underperformance of the crop.
Plants under stress are unable to produce sufficient cytokinins, the natural plant growth hormones which are necessary for plant growth, nutrient mobilization and distribution, germination, cell division, root development, flowering and seed formation. These naturally occurring hormones have a very pronounced effect on the growth of plant cells and regulate delicate physiological plant processes.
After many years of research and field testing, the natural cytokinins in Nitrozyme can be put to productive use on your plants. Natural cytokinins such as those found in Nitrozyme will help control and regulate: germination – root development – nutrition uptake – plant tissue composition – tillering – flowering -seed and fruit set.
HOW DOES NITROZYME WORK?
Plants progress through a cycle of growth stages. Using the example of wheat, the plant starts out as a seed, germinates and goes through the seedling stage, through the three, five and seven leaf stages, and finally forming a head and producing new seed.
When a plant is under stress at any given stage of growth, reduced levels of cytokinin growth hormones are produced. If this reduction occurs at certain key stages of growth such as the tillering stage, yields can be affected.
By making available extra hormone to the plant at these stages, you can influence the crops final yield.
Timing of the application is essential. If you apply a hormone to a plant, the result will be stimulated growth of the type which the plant is currently undergoing. If the plant is forming roots, more root growth can occur. If tillering is underway, more tillers will be formed. If stem growth is in progress, that is what will occur. If flowering is in progress more flowering will occur.
WHAT ABOUT NITROZYME AS A SEED TREATMENT?
Nitrozyme is very effective as a seed treatment. Many gardeners and researchers have been experimenting with Growth Plus as a seed treatment because it contains certain hormones which can help promote early seedling vigor, and up to 40% increase in root mass. More root mass leads to a healthier and a more vigorous plant.
Best applied early morning or late afternoon.
Mix only for immediate application.
Use in conjunction with normal fertilizer program. Dilute 3 ml Nitrozyme to 1 Ltr water. For a more effective treatment use a wetting agent (surfactant). Spray plant early (2-4 Leaf). Continue weekly for 2-3 weeks.
HYDROPONIC NUTRIENT TANK ADDITIVE
Add 1 ml per Ltr. Monitor pH levels closely as pH will drop.
Do not foliar feed Nitrozyme if you are adding it to a nutrient tank.
It is most advisable that Nitrozyme applications are ceased prior to the flowering period

Optic Foliar Rev - 250ML / 500ML / 1L | Foliar PerformanceRegular price $45.00 Sale price $36.00 Save $9.00
Optic Foliar REV is an exceptional nutrient solution for fast-growing plants. After the application of Optic Foliar WATTS, the plants will grow markedly faster and require additional nutrients. This is where Optic Foliar REV steps in to provide additional nutrition to the plant to help supplement the high rates of growth created by WATTS. REV is best used with TRANSPORT Optic Foliar REV helps the plant maintain its highly accelerated growth and flowering rates, resulting in greener and healthier plants, as well as higher-quality crop yields, by providing most of the micronutrients, organic vitamins, amino acids, as well as carbohydrate sugars and B1 as key additional building blocks for flower development, quality, taste and flavour.
Best used with distilled water
Optic Foliar Watts - 250ML / 500ML / 1L | Foliar PerformanceRegular price $45.00 Sale price $36.00 Save $9.00
Optic Foliar WATTS allows the plant to utilize additional energy provided to the plant through sunlight and supplemental HID lighting. Thus allowing the plant to optimize the Calvin Cycle and exponentially increase growth rates that lead to improved yields! High quality hydroponic lights and ballasts are key to growing plants successfully. Using Optic Foliar WATTS will allow for better light usage and efficiency within the plant, and dramatically increase growth rates. WATTS stimulate chlorophyll/ chloroplast production, increasing the ATP cycle in the leaves also known as the ‘molecular unit of currency of intercellular energy’. Optic Foliar WATTS can thus be used to turbocharge plant growth and light efficiency within the mesophyll layer of the leaves, resulting in faster and greater nutrient uptake. WATTS is the most concentrated and cost-effective light energy spray on the market, and will not curl, damage or burn leaves — it works with your lights to affect increased growth and nutrient uptake from the root zone. This results in bushier healthier plants, being ‘pushed’ into early development of flowers for bigger yields at harvest.
Optic Foliar Transport 60mLRegular price $13.00 Sale price $10.40 Save $2.60
Optic Foliar transport is a spreader and wetter that allows anything you combine with it to be absorbed by the mesophyll palisade layer inside leaves – directly to where the chloroplasts are that complete the photosynthetic functions for the plant.
The thing that makes transport stand out over other foliar additives is the fact you will be able to spray your plants WHILE LIGHTS ARE ON! without the risk of any adverse impact on your plants. No scorching. No burning. No residues. No post-spray wash.
Gone are the days of making special visits to your garden when the lights are due to go off, by using transport you can spray plants during your normal day-to-day visits and checks, with no risk to the health of the plants.
Not just a nutritional spray, Transport is an efficiency spray as it allows your active ingredients to penetrate the leaf surface, so you don’t have to make as strong a solution. Optic foliar recommend using your pesticide or fungicide at ¼ strength as transport boosts the efficiency so you don’t have to use as much & it’s still as effective as a full dose.
Nutrition passes through plant structures such as the stem at a very slow rate while ingredients in optic foliar allow the compounds to be delivered directly into the plants structures where it’s being used. The growing tips of plants consume most of plant resources in active growth and spraying these sites will facilitate growth in these areas. The almost immediate uptake also allows you to treat deficiencies much quicker than via nutrient solutions fed to roots.
Designed to work with any other foliar products from any nutrient range, transport facilitates your chosen ingredients uptake by the plant. It doesn’t replace your nutrient range but actively increases the available nutrients for the plant. If your just feeding nutrition to your plants via the roots, your missing out on an entirely different route of feeding and you should consider adding optic foliar’s range to your arsenal.
Optic foliar Transport should be used if you intend on mixing it with other ingredients. If you want a ready to use spray, check out Optic Foliar Overgrow which combines several products into a RTU spray that has a wide range of action.
How to use:
Mix 7.5ml of transport to each 1l of water.
Mix with distilled or Reverse osmosis water.
Use any additional products at ¼ strength.
Do not adjust the pH of the solution.
You only need to spray the tops of leaves.

Canna Rhizotonic - 250ML / 1L / 5L | Root Stimulator | for Cuttings | Faster GerminationRegular price $50.00 Save $-50.00
CANNA RHIZOTONIC is a powerful, algae based, vegetative stimulator for plant roots. It contains multiple vitamins and is 100% natural. RHIZOTONIC adds more than 60 microbiological substances that considerably speed up the growth of a balanced root environment.
Benefits of CANNA RHIZOTONIC:
Besides stimulating root growth on plants that are already rooted, RHIZOTONIC also stimulates new root growth on cuttings and transplants. The various trace elements and vitamins such as B1&B2 stimulate the production of hormones and root growth, thus providing beautiful, strong white roots.
If you dilute RHIZOTONIC (40ml/10 litre), you can use it to soak seeds. RHIZOTONIC softens up the seed skin, making it easier for the seed to burst and germinate.
Good results start with a healthy plant. Because RHIZOTONIC stimulates root growth, it improves the strength of a plant. This is especially important during the first weeks of a plant's life, since young plants are the most vulnerable. RHIZOTONIC stimulates further root development, increases the plant s resistance to diseases and promotes its inner and outer strength.
Many growers agree that plants recover much quicker from stress situations if the leaves have been sprayed with RHIZOTONIC. Such stress situations could for example occur during transport and re-potting plants. RHIZOTONIC will also improve plants that are unhealthy or poorly developed.
Furthermore, RHIZOTONIC is often sprayed on leaves and can be used as a simple means for raising the pH level in fertiliser tanks.
RHIZOTONIC can be used regardless of the type of medium. It is suitable for cultivation in potting mix and hydro culture. You can use it during the whole growth cycle. From seed to harvest!
