HIGH YIELD. LOW COST. CNS17 Grow is extremely concentrated, cost effective, and produces premium results for the commercial grower and hobbyists. Super concentrated, fully chelated mineral formulas. Ideal for Deep Water Culture (DWC), Aeroponics, and NFT Systems! CNS17 is the result of an innovative technology that allows Botanicare to produce a professional strength, one part nutrient with all of the required mineral ions in correct balance. This kit is designed to complete a full cycle grow for up to 2-4 large plants grown hydroponically. This kit is specifically sized for growing in a 2' x 2' - 3' x 3' hydroponic grow tent kit.
Originally developed as a professional grade nutrient by renowned scientist Dr. Lynette Morgan, CNS17‘s revolutionary suspension technology utilizes polysaccharides in a proprietary process that makes it possible for all 17 essential plant nutrients to be contained in convenient single bottle formulas. Once diluted in water, these simple sugars hydrolyze and provide the added benefit of becoming a highly available energy source for beneficial microbes and plants. No other product offers such a complete range of elements in a single bottle while priced at less than half most major competitors. CNS17 is a high yielding, low cost nutrient that provides everything plants need in single grow, bloom, and ripening formulas!
No other product offers such a complete range of elements in a single bottle while priced at less than half most major competitors. CNS17 is a high yielding, economical nutrient that provides everything plants need in one-part grow, bloom, and ripening formulas.
CNS17® GROW FORMULA - CNS17 Grow is highly concentrated and cost effective while still providing elevated levels of essential elements proven critical to optimize plant growth. The proper ratio of nitrogen to potassium supports increased root development and sturdier vegetative growth to build the foundation for bigger, vigorous plants. CNS17 is made using a proprietary fertilizer production technology which allows it to contain sufficient levels of micro and macronutrients in a single bottle, while remaining stable in a highly concentrated suspension.
CNS17® BLOOM FORMULA - CNS17 Bloom is highly concentrated, cost effective, and produces premium results for the commercial grower and hobbyist. Formulated for all grow media, the NPK ratio in CNS17 Bloom was designed to provide specific critical elements to support heavily fruiting and flowering crops. This allows phosphorus and potassium levels to be maximized without leading to toxicity or nutrient burn. CNS17 Bloom formula also combines calcium, sulfates, and trace minerals to provide a complete and balanced spectrum of plant nutrients throughout the entire bloom phase.
CNS17® RIPE - CNS17 Ripe is a highly concentrated, economical nutrient that produces premium results for both commercial and small scale growers. The Ripe Formula was developed to maximize crop potential and quality in fruiting and flowering plants during the final growth phase. Replacing CNS17 Bloom with CNS17 Ripe for the final two weeks before harvest reduces nitrogen to a minimum level while maintaining phosphorous and potassium within ideal ranges. This specialty formula promotes ripening along with increased flower size, density, and essential oil production.

- Product Q&A
Botanicare CNS17 Basic Hydroponic Nutrient Package - Medium Questions & Answers
What causes CNS17 to have it’s unique appearance and consistency?
The technology used in the formulation CNS17 utilizes polysaccharides (simple sugars) as part of the suspension method that prevents certain elemental macro and micro nutrients such as calcium, phosphates, and sulfates from bonding together and precipitating out of solution while in a highly concentrated state. This is what allows CNS17 to deliver all of essential plant nutrients in just a single bottle. Once diluted into solution these simple sugars cleanly dissolve and provide an energy source for beneficial microbes.
Why does CNS17 appear to be flaking and sinking to the bottom of my reservoir before it is thoroughly mixed?
When mixing CNS17 into water with a temperature below 65° F (23° C) what appears as a separation may seem to occur. CNS17 works best when mixed with water temperatures ranging between 68°-75° F (20°-23° C). A quick and easy way to adjust for low water temperatures in the reservoir is to mix the desired dose with an equal amount of warm water before introducing it into a reservoir that contains water under 68* F. Excessive calcium often found in municipal or well water sources may also bind with the phosphorous in CNS17 causing it to precipitate and fall out of solution. For best results use CNS17 with reverse osmosis water.
If CNS17 is complete, why are some micronutrients not listed on the guaranteed minimum analysis?
To comply with state registration regulations certain micronutrients were omitted from the guaranteed minimum analysis on the label due to their concentrations being low in comparison to the macronutrients. CNS17 does contain all essential micronutrients in the formula including boron (B), manganese (Mn), iron (Fe), zinc (Zn), copper (Cu), molybdenum (Mo), and nickel (Ni). When used at the recommended applications rates CNS17 will deliver all essential micronutrients at the proper ratios.
Is CNS17 Ripe a supplement or a base nutrient?
CNS17 Ripe is a complete base formula. Replacing CNS17 Bloom with CNS17 Ripe during the final two weeks before harvest reduces nitrogen while maintaining phosphorous and potassium within ideal ranges. This specialty formula encourages the plant to focus energy on ripening and swelling it’s fruits and flowers. Due to its high PK value it is not advised to use a bloom stimulant with CNS17 Ripe as doing so may cause an imbalance. Bloom stimulants are safe with all other CNS17 formulas.
