Our proprietary formulation process ensure rapid nutrient uptake and assimilation by your plants. We have a strict quality control procedure that ensures that nutrient levels are consistent for all of our products.
All Cutting Edge Solutions formulas contain no hormones, plant growth regulators, or dyes.Cutting Edge Solutions Basic Recirculating Feed Chart Cutting Edge Solutions Basic Soil & Coco Feed Chart Cutting Edge Solutions Professional Recirculating Feed Chart Cutting Edge Solutions Professional Soil & Coco Feed Chart
Micro 6-0-0: Micro is the constant through CES's base family and is to be used through the entirety of the plant's life cycle. Micro is packed with all of the micronutrients your plant will need for optimal health, as well as the strong nitrogen and calcium base for the 3-Part System.
Grow 2-1-6: Grow can be used in the vegetative and transitional stages of the plant's growth, adding nitrogen and potassium to enhance the plant's photosynthetic rate and energy transfer, as well as making sure to regulate C02 uptake.
Bloom 0-6-5: Bloom's phosphorous heavy makeup is great for enhancing flower production and encouraging the plant to shift its hormonal signals from vegetative to flower.
Bulletproof Si: Bulletproof Si is derived from silicon dioxide and benefits flower mass while producing tough, deep-green leaves that are capable of high rates of photosynthesis. The rapidly available form of silica promotes plant resistance to stressors like heat, cold, drought, pests, and accelerated mitosis, as well as strengthening the cellular structure of your leaves. Always apply Bulletproof Si to water first, before fertilizer. **NOTE** Bulletproof Si uses specialty enzymes in the formula that creates a strong sour, and ammonia-like aroma as it works. This smell is normal and may become stronger over time.
Sugaree/Sour-Dee: Sugaree & Sour-Dee from Cutting Edge Solutions is your solution for fueling heavier harvests, amplified flavors, and increased resin and terpene production. Sugaree & Sour-Dee are both complex polysaccharides, folded into a matrix fortified with an emulsion of trace minerals. This carbohydrate complex provides additional energy to process and metabolize fertilizer farther into the season, as well as provides food for the thriving microbiology in your root zone. The decision between using Sugaree or Sour-Dee would reflect your plants natural genetic terpene profiles. When focusing on sweet, fruity, and floral strains, Sugaree is the way. If you are growing sour, citrus, fuel, and piney strains, Sour-Dee is for you. You may combine both for a ‘sweet and sour’ effect. Feed regularly during flowering season, as well as during the flush stage for maximum resin production.
Plant Amp: Plant Amp is an OMRI certified calcium dense formula that can be used throughout the plant's life cycle, strengthening the cell walls of your plant as well as improving the metabolic processing of nutrients. Plant Amp is perfect for naturally magnesium-rich soils, or mixing with CES's Mag-Amped to create your own perfect blend.
Mag-Amped: Mag-Amped is a pure magnesium product that can be used throughout the plant's life cycle, promoting root development and the synthesis of chlorophyll. Mag-Amped can be used to get rid of deficiencies, or you can use Mag-Amped with Plant Amp to create a perfect calcium magnesium-rich mixture.
Uncle John's Blend: UJB is a complex potassium mixture that is used primarily to enhance a plant's metabolic rate, especially for flowering plants during the blooming stage.
Cal-Mag Amplified: CES made it easy for farmers and small growers alike by introducing Cal-Mag Amplified. This formula is the ideal choice for supplementing your native soil with pure, rapidly absorbable forms of calcium and magnesium. This can be used throughout the plant's life cycle.
Biological Family (HumTea) - Cutting Edge Solutions line of in-house produced bio invigoration supplements benefit farmers using any type of medium or grow method. HumTea is the culmination of nearly a decade of laboratory and greenhouse research. HumTea will stimulate and greatly enhance your plant's creation of acid phosphatase, making phosphorous far more available to your plants.
HumTea: HumTea was the first beneficial tea to hit the hydroponics market, launched in 2001 after four years of research. HumTea® is not just a fertilizer, rather a specialized blend of proprietary ingredients, humic compounds, sea kelp, and earthworm castings. Once brewed, these inputs make a very clean and effective tea that functions as a healthy biologically diverse liquid topsoil. HumTea can be used during all stages of plant growth; cloning, vegetative & mothers, flowering, and flushing cycles.

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: O
