Want the best nutrient for hydroponic systems?
For hydroponics 
it is critical that the base nutrient provides strong pH stability and not cause any blockages or buildup.

Best nutrient for hydroponic systems

FloraMax Hydro A+B

FloraMax Hydro A+B is a professional, Dutch-style two-part nutrient that is used throughout both the vegetative and flowering cycle.

  • FloraMax Hydro is balanced and buffered specifically for hydroponic systems and contains NO unnecessary ingredients. This gives the final harvest a much cleaner taste, better flavours and enhanced aromas.
  • FloraMax Hydro is so simple to use. Its pH stability is over FIVE times better than other popular nutrients (requires minimal pH adjustment).  These are no complex mixing procedures and it will not clog drippers.
  • It has a single A+B formula for seed-to-harvest nutrition.  This is less confusing and more convenient than using separate grow and bloom formulations.  Also, unlike similar products, Hydro A+B provides solid performance throughout both veg and flower.

“The plants are lush and healthy… and the weight and flavour of our fruits are second to none”

“Hydro A+B has made growing way easier for us. We live in a hard water region and the pH of our water is very high. Before Hydro A+B, we had to lower the pH daily. Now we only need to do it 2 times a week max!…the nutrient runs super clean with zero buildup in lines and drippers”

“The simplified dosing, pH buffering and ultra solubility makes Hydro A+B so much easier for our growers”

Inorganic nutrients for plants?

Satisfactory plant growth requires all nutrients being simultaneously available and in sufficient quantity.  The 6 “macronutrients” are those needed in the largest quantities. Of these, the 3 most important ones are the NPK fertilizers – nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K). The “trace elements” are also needed but only in small amounts.

Generally speaking, nutrients can only be rapidly absorbed by plant roots if they are in the form of mineral “ions”.  An “ion” is an atom or group of atoms which has gained or lost one or more electrons, and therefore carries a positive or negative charge. This “charge” enables ions to either repel or attract other ions. Ions with a positive charge (+) are called “cations” and are attracted to a root hair containing negative (-) ions called “anions”. In this way, nutrients are brought close to root hairs so they can be absorbed.

“Inorganic nutrients” or “salts” supply nutrients in the mineral ion form. Provided pH is within the acceptable range, they are readily available for root uptake. These will often be listed in the derivation statement on nutrient labels.

Where “inorganic nutrients” (i.e. salts) come from: Inorganic nutrients are sourced from seawater and mineral deposits. The unwanted and nuisance salts are removed by a process called fractional crystallization. Hence they are “synthetic” only in the sense that they are purified by man-made processes.
