Q: WHAT’S THE SHELF LIFE OF EARTH JUICE/HYDRO-ORGANIC PRODUCTS?
A: Earth Juice liquids, granulars and solubles have an indefinite shelf life.
Only products containing Mycorrhizae and/or Microbes have expiration dating. *Expiration dating does not apply to any actual fertilizing materials (active ingredients), which are not affected.
Earth Juice Sugar Peak may develop sugar crystal deposits which will not alter the effectiveness of the products.
Q: I’M HAND-FEEDING MY PLANTS WITH EARTH JUICE GROW, SO DO I NEED TO AERATE THE EARTH JUICE SOLUTION BEFORE USING?
A: It is not necessary to aerate. Simply mix it with water and feed your plants. You can aerate prior to using if you choose; aeration is a great way of conditioning organic nutrients.
Q: DO I NEED TO AERATE MY HYDROPONIC RESERVOIR?
A: For best results, we recommend to continuously aerate reservoir solutions with a high quality air pump. It is especially recommended when using Earth Juice Sugar Peak.
Q: IS IT NECESSARY TO CHANGE MY RESERVOIR WHEN USING EARTH JUICE HYDROPONIC NUTRIENTS?
A: We recommend keeping systems fresh by draining, flushing lines, if necessary, and adding fresh solution every 14-28 days.
Q: I JUST BOUGHT A BRAND NEW, UNOPENED, BOTTLE OF EARTH JUICE BLOOM AND IT DOES NOT SHAKE, IS IT SOLID?
A: It is not solid and it will shake and pour. The fluid in Earth Juice Bloom will not, and is not, able to dissipate, evaporate or disappear. The material left after the initial filling can, at times, temporarily adhere to the bottom of the bottle, giving the product the feel of being solid. By following these steps the product will become an easy-pour liquid.
A. Make sure the cap is properly and tightly secure.
B. Turn the bottle upside down and give it a good 5-10 second shake.
If it material does not seem to (feel or sound) be letting loose, carefully strike the bottom of the bottle with the heel of your hand or give it a couple of light taps with a rubber mallet and shake again.
C. Once it has been thoroughly mixed/shaken, thereafter it will remain in a more fluid state. A good vigorous shake during the initial stocking/shelving, with a follow up shake in 1-2 weeks, will help keep the product in a fluid state.
Q: MY GALLON BOTTLE OF EARTH JUICE BLOOM HAS TURNED THICK?
A: This can occur if the product has not been properly mixed before each use. When standing, the heavier organic materials will settle out and the lighter materials and liquid will rise to the top. If the bottle is not thoroughly shaken before each use, the liquid will eventually be poured off and what will remain will be the heavier, thicker material.
Q: THERE’S A THICK MASS OF SEDIMENT IN MY BOTTLE OF EARTH JUICE BLOOM, CAN I DILUTE THE CONCENTRATE IN THE BOTTLE WITH WATER?
A: Yes! The formula can be reconstituted but only very carefully with Distilled Water Only and by using the following directions: This procedure can be used to reconstitute Earth Juice Bloom and Grow formulas
A. Use Only Distilled Water.
B. Do not use more Distilled Water than 25% (1/4th) of the original volume of the bottle.
C. Add the Distilled Water and shake or stir until the mass of sediment has completely dispersed into the solution.
D. Leaving the cap off, place a piece of cloth over the opening allowing the bottle to breathe for 24 hours.
E. After 24 hours, replace and tighten the cap, shake well and it is ready to use.
F. May be used at 25% over the recommended use rates.
G. Shake Vigorously Before Each Use
Q: MY BOTTLE OF META-K CONTAINS PIECES THAT WHEN SHAKEN SOUND LIKE GLASS?
A: Sediment may occur in this product. The sediment can range from silt to small brittle segments (pieces) that can be heard upon shaking. This is normal and it will not affect the product’s performance.
Meta-K is derived from a natural mined source of potassium and the quantity of sediment that can develop from using this natural source varies due to conditions beyond our control.
Q: MY NEW BOTTLE OF EARTH JUICE XATALYST HAS SORT OF AN OFF, SOUR ODOR. IS IT GOOD TO USE?
A: Earth Juice Xatalyst, Grow & Bloom all can exhibit slightly earthy to sharp-sour aromatic tones. The aromatics are primarily a combination of the natural ingredients and predominately the “Earth Juice Yeast Complex.” The yeast has a naturally sharp-sour odor. The aromatics will vary somewhat from batch to batch. As three of these products age in the bottle. The sharp-sour notes generally reduce and mellow over time. As long as, prior to opening a brand new bottle, the bottle is not noticeably swollen, the aromatics, sharpness or sourness will not hamper or change the effectiveness of the products.
Q: I’M USING SUGAR PEAK AND THE PH OF MY RESERVOIR SOLUTIONS IS LOW?
A: When using Sugar Peak, Hi-Brix Grow & Bloom & Sweet & Heavy we recommend mixing the concentrate as per directions with Tap Water and then take an initial pH reading. Make sure to continuously aerate the solution and use the system as normal. After the first 24 hours, take a 2nd pH reading. At that time if you believe the pH of the solution needs to be raised, we recommend adjusting in small increments until you reach the desired pH.
After being mixed with Tap Water, many Earth Juice hydroponic products will begin on the acidic side. After 24-48 hours of aeration and use, the solution will generally exhibit an upward movement in pH.
We caution using pH-up adjusters during the initial 24-48 hour period. But if solution’s pH does not exhibit upward movement, the next time you produce a fresh solution try initially adjusting to pH 4.5-4.8. If after 24-48 hours of aeration and use there is again no upward movement in the pH, adjust to the desired pH. In cases were there is no signs of upward movement in the fresh solution’s pH within first 24-48 hours of aeration and use, you may need to adjust the pH initially to the desired pH. Do not let the pH exceed 6.8. If the pH exceeds 6.8, lower the pH the desired pH.
Q: I MIXED A SOLUTION USING THE EARTH JUICE ORIGINAL FORMULAS “ADVANCED CHART” AND MY PH IS 3.90?
A: Earth Juice will work in harmony with the medium and self adjust.
Q: DO I NEED TO USE REVERSE OSMOSIS?
A: It is recommended to have water analysis by a professional service When using Earth Juice plant nutrients, we recommend using good tap water whenever possible. Rule of Thumb: If the tap water is considered potable and is being applied to outdoor landscape and houseplants without any adverse affects on plants or turf, it is reasonable to say the water is OK for use with Earth Juice.
Q: I’M USING SUGAR PEAK & XATALYST AND MY RESERVOIR HAS A THIN FILM, MOSTLY AROUND THE EDGES?
A: Reservoirs may develop a thin film on the surface and/or at the edges with using many of our hydroponic nutrients and additives. These are harmless naturally-occurring materials containing many of the same beneficials that are found in best compost teas.
Q: CAN I, OR SHOULD I, USE EARTH JUICE XATALYST WITH OTHER PLANT NUTRIENTS?
A: Yes. Xatalyst is the number one hydroponic additive in the world! It will improve the performance and effectiveness of all soil and hydroponic nutrients.
Q: WHEN SHOULD I START USING GOGNATS?
A: Start applications prior to pest infestations when conditions for the development of pest problems are prevalent.
Q: I ADDED GOGNATS, AS PER THE MANUFACTURER’S DIRECTIONS, TO SEVERAL 55-GALLON WATER RESERVOIRS. IMMEDIATELY AFTER BEING MECHANICALLY MIXED, STRANDS OF A FATTY-LIKE SUBSTANCE APPEARED TO BE FLOATING AT THE TOP?
A: These strands or beads are food grade and natural materials that, due to various conditions, may develop. They will not reduce the product’s overall performance and effectiveness.
Q: CAN I USE HI-BRIX MOLASSES FOR PLANTS (MFP) DURING THE LEAF GROWTH/BLOOMING PHASE?
A: Yes. We highly recommend using Hi-Brix MFP through all phases of plant growth. It contains elements that are beneficial for plants through all phases of plant development. For ultimate results, use in conjunction with Xatalyst. Try using Hi-Brix MFP on your lawn.
Q: SOLUTION GRADE LEAVES A RESIDUE IN MY TANK?
A: Solution Grade is micro-fine, and although it is considered solution grade, it is not a water soluble salt.
When using, add to a volume of water, agitate and use immediately. Stock tanks/reservoirs: agitate just prior to and during applications. Sprayers, bubblers and various other emitters: you will need to use emitters that will permit the material to pass freely. For best results we recommend to continuously aerate stock tanks/reservoirs. To improve the performance of Solution Grade use in conjunction with Earth Juice Xatalyst.
Q: I USED A SYRINGE FOR MEASURING OUT ALL OF MY PLANT NUTRIENTS AND MY BOTTLE OF META-K IS STARTING TO SMELL FUNKY?
A: The practice of dipping a measuring and application device directly into the bottles of various natural-organic liquid concentrates will lead to cross contaminations. Added to that is the fact that syringes are very difficult to completely clean residue and sanitize will only increases this risk. The results of cross-contamination of liquid natural-organic products can lead to the development of malodors. It is best to use measuring devices that require you to pour the liquid out of the container and those that can be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized after using.
Q: WHAT KIND OF MOLASSES DO YOU USE IN YOUR PRODUCTS?
A: Only SugarCane Molasses.
Q: DO I NEED TO ADD CALCIUM WHEN USING EARTH JUICE GROW & BLOOM?
A: Earth Juice Grow contains approximately 1-2% Ca. Earth Juice Bloom approximately 4-5% Ca.
Q: CAN I USE SEABLAST AS A FOLIAR SPRAY?
A: Yes. General use rate: ¼- ½ teaspoon per gallon.
*Rule of thumb when applying any material as a foliar: Test on a few specimen leaves and observe for any signs of stress for 24 hours before using. Only use if plants display no signs of stress.
