3-Part Base Nutrients (Grow/Micro/Bloom) - CES developed their base 3-part system, micro, grow & bloom, to be the cleanest and highest quality mineral-based fertilizer system available. Handmade by our (extended) family business, we take no shortcuts in assuring that we offer a product line that is reasonably priced, without sacrificing the quality of the products or the growth potential of plants. We take pride in the fact that our products contain no artificial hormones or growth regulators and we never add any dyes to our recipes. The CES line was made to be simple and easy to use for beginner gardeners, while also being adaptable for advanced gardening techniques. The 3-PART is developed for use across a wide spectrum of water sources, as well as growing techniques from Deep Water Culture to good old fashioned soil. CES 3-Part is the base to healthy and happy plants.Cutting Edge Solutions™ Feeding Schedule
Additives Line-Up (Plant AMP, Uncle John's Blend, Bulletproof SI & MAG-Amped) - are the “icing on the cake” of the CES 6-part base line-up. Comprised of high quality chelated and complexed elements, the CES additives are extremely soluble for plant uptake, both through the roots and through foliar applications. The low molecular weight of the inputs makes for "on-demand" availability, taking a plant's ability to optimize it's overall growth to the next level. Please note that the additives are more sensitive to shelf-life than the 3-part, stored properly out of direct light and extreme temperatures, we expect to see a 8-10 month shelf life on these products.
Beneficials (G-Rex & T-Rex) - G-Rex is formulated to be used throughout the entire growth cycle. It will continue to work from the rooted cutting stage all the way until harvest. When making cuttings, add G-Rex as soon as callus forms at the base of the cutting. For example, when you set up a tray of rockwool or oasis cubes water with Hum-tea, wait seven days and then water in G-Rex. After transplant continue to use G-Rex in your system at the recommended rate through harvest. G-Rex is compatible with any fertilizer product.
Sweeteners (Sugaree / Sour-Dee) - provide and organic carbohydrate and electrolyte source to stimulate amino acid production and adds a carbohydrate (sugar) source at the end of the flowering season. The proprietary formulation of Sugaree and Sour-Dee contain a low molecular weight sugar source with an emulsion of trace minerals. This combination acts as a compensator as lowering light levels at the end of flowering precipitate drops in photosynthetic rate and ATP (plant sugar) production. These additional carbohydrates provide the plant with the energy it requires to fuel respiration that drives fruit set. Sugaree and Sour-Dee’s specially designed organic formulation provides increases in fruit set, retention, and sugar production.
Cutting Edge Solutions Nutrient Package Questions & Answers
Does your product work with all mediums?
How long should I go between tank changes?
The size of a plant or the growth stage can determine the rate of water usage and nutrient uptake. Logically, the larger the plant gets, the more water and nutrient it will use. Some short-term crop plants (tomatoes, lettuce) go through an aggressive nutrient uptake around the 3-5 week period, so make sure to keep up on tank changes/monitoring during this critical time period.
Is a transition period necessary between the vegetative and bloom stage?
What is the optimal Ph level for my nutrient solution?
What PPM/EC is optimum for my nutrient solution?
