High Nitrogen and Phosphate For Stonger Stems and Healthier, Greener Leaves.
Grow 2-1-6, along with Bloom 0-6-5 and Micro 6-0-0, is one of three components of Cutting Edge Solution's 3-Part Base Family system. Grow is the be used in the vegetative and transitional stages of the plant's growth, adding nitrogen nd potassium to enhance the plant's photosynthetic rate and energy transfer. Grow is extremely low in heavy metals, ensuring healthy plants and extraordinary results for beginning and advanced growers alike. Grow is affordable, easy to use, and is made to easily customize a feed scheudle that perfectly matches your plant's seasonal needs. Grow has been developed for use with a wide range of water sources and growing methods, from hydroponics, coco, deep-water culture, and both indoor and outdoor soils.
Each ingredient is blended in small batches, and absolutely no shortcuts are taken when it comes to the quality of the product. Grow is comprised of food grade ingredients, and contains no artificial hormones, growth regulators, or added dyes, and is extremely low in heavy metals.Gauranteed Analysis

Grow 2-1-6 is a highly concentrated nutrient solution. Never mix undiluted concentrates as this may result in nutrient lock-up. Add each nutrient separately to water while aerating reservoir regularly.
- Shake well and measure carefully using a milliliter measuring cup. If using CES Micro 6-0-0™, add Micro 6-0-0™ first to water, then other nutrients.
- After nutrients are mixed in water, adjust pH to 4.5-6.5.
- Monitor ppm and EC in reservoir and top off with fresh water as needed.
- Reservoir temperature should be 60-68 degrees F.
- Do not store product in direct sunlight. Do not freeze.
- Grow 2-1-6 is designed for use in hydroponics, soilless, continuous feed systems, drain to waste, and soil applications.

Cutting Edge Solutions Grow Questions & Answers
Does your product work with all mediums?
Yes. Cutting Edge Solutions products have been developed wth a very broad range of variables, from water sources to varying types of medium and growing methods. Through our experience with these differences we have achieved a final formula that is effective when used across a wide spectrum of methods.
How long should I go between tank changes?
Tank change intervals depend on the size of your reservoir, and whether or not you are using a drain to waste or recirculating watering system. The average life span of a reservoir is about 5-7 days. When using drain to waste it is best to check your PPM/EC level as the nutrient solution is used to make sure that there is no spike in the PPM/EC, but usually the plants will use the fertilizer as they grow. It is more critical to check your nutrient solution while utilizing a recirculating system, as the runoff can drastically change the PPM/EC level of your nutrient solution. If your PPM/EC is raising in your re-circulating reservoir, you should top it off with plain water until your meter shows an acceptable level.
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?
Depending on the type of plant you are growing, a transition mix may be beneficial. Some more hardy plants don’t need to gradually accept a new mix, while some more delicate plants appreciate more subtle changes in its' diet in order to reduce the risk of shock. Slower growing plant varieties may benefit from a transition period more than a faster growing variety as well. Some plants are naturally more efficient at taking up Iron and don’t require a transition stage.
What is the optimal Ph level for my nutrient solution?
The optimum Ph level for maximum nutrient availability is different for all elements, for instance Nitrogen has a different optimal Ph range than Phosphorus. The optimal Ph range can also vary due to medium and growing method variances, that is to say soil vs. rockwool or Aeroponics vs. Ebb and Flow. Therefore, we recommend a Ph range that is most inclusive, from 4.5 to 6.5. The Ph level we recommend for the most inclusive beneficial range is 6.
We do not recommend using Ph up at any time. If your water is acidic, i.e. RO water, adjust your water to Ph 7.0, then add nutrients. Utilizing this method, the elements are less likely to be locked out because of a severe Ph swing.
What PPM/EC is optimum for my nutrient solution?
PPM levels vary from situation to situation. Our recommended vegetative mixing rate can run as high as 2000 PPM, while a “flush” mixing rate is much lower. Please refer to the CES product mixing and reference chart for specific recommended PPM ranges for our products. Note: Our mixing chart is based on a 0 PPM water source, please test your water to establish your specific base range.
