Good quality easy to use pH buffered 1 part nutrient by Growth Technology. Includes Ionic hydroponic nutrients for all stages of plant growth: grow, bloom and a PK booster.
Growers in hard water areas should use the special IONIC HW formulation. The Hard Water product has a distinctive HW label on the bottle. Both types of IONIC are available in Grow and Bloom formulations.
IONIC Hard Water solution is more acidic. This is achieved by careful selection of the component mineral salts. A more acidic solution will neutralise bicarbonates on its own. This will reduce the amount of acid needed to control the pH and thus reduce the chance of phosphate accumulation.
IONIC Hard Water solution is also specially formulated to take account of the minerals, such as calcium, that are usually present in hard water. By lowering these elements in the nutrient solution it is possible to ensure that the final solution is as close as possible to ideal levels of the major elements. This will reduce the problems associated with hard water and allow the grower to maintain the tank for longer periods between changes.
Ionic is available in three distinct formulations. Ionic Grow is designed to supply the needs of the plant during the vegetative stage of its growth cycle. Ionic Bloom is dedicated to the fruiting and flowering stage of plant growth, containing enhanced levels of Phosphorous and Potassium, the elements required for development of buds and flowers. Ionic Boost is a special formulation designed to maximise yields from flowering plants in their final stages of growth.
Ionic Hydroponic Nutrients Instructions & Dosage
Add Ionic to tap water at the rate of 10 ml per litre. Target EC for most applications is 2.0mS/cm2.
Check pH of final solution. It should be between 5.8 and 6.3. Ionic has a stabilised pH and it should not require correction. If adjustment is needed use Growth Technology pH Up or pH Down and follow instructions carefully.
PK Boost 14:15 at 1ml per litre will raise the EC by around 0.35 mS/cm
