Best nutrients for a soil grow

FloraMax Soil A+B

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

  • FloraMax Soil A+B is balanced and buffered specifically for soil and contains NO unnecessary ingredients. This gives the final harvest a much cleaner taste, better flavours and enhanced aromas.
  • FloraMax Soil is so simple to use.  It requires NO pH adjustment or complex mixing procedures, and 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, Soil A+B provides solid performance throughout both veg and flower.

“The produce from Soil A+B is really clean. There are no harsh metallic or foreign tastes, just clean full flavours. Everything tastes nice and home grown!”

“There is hardly any sediment in the bottom of the barrel after a long grow. This is great compared to other nutes as we no longer have to regularly drain and wash the barrel”

Run-to-waste Systems
“Run-to-waste” describes those systems where the excess nutrient or “run-off” is not re-circulated. Conventional ‘soil culture’ is a type of run-to-waste system.  Feeds are small and infrequent.  The ‘run-off’ is either drained directly onto the ground or is collected.

Collecting the run-off allows feed volume and frequency to be calculated more accurately. This helps prevent under-dosing or over-dosing. It also allows the waste nutrient to be disposed of more responsibly. Feed volume and frequency is calculated so that the percentage run-off is typically 10-20%. Irrespective of whether the nutrient is collected or drained directly onto the ground, plain water flushes are usually needed at frequent intervals through the same plumbing. This helps minimize salt build-up in the root zone and also helps keep the feed circuit free of blockages.

How to calculate ‘Percentage Run-off’?

This is calculated as follows:  Volume of run-off x 100 ÷ Volume of feed

  • ‘Volume of run-off’ is the total volume of nutrient collected at the drainage point over 24 hours.
  • ‘Volume of feed’ is determined by measuring the total volume (over 24 hours) delivered by all feed outlets that drain to the drainage point. Assuming all plants are of equivalent maturity, make sure they are fed equal volume.
  • ‘Percentage run-off’: Achieving the desired percentage is determined by trial and error e.g. If aiming for 10%, adjust feed volumes until 10ml of run-off is collected for every 100ml fed to the plants (10ml x 100 ÷ 100ml = 10%). Realistically, because a plant’s demand for nutrient will depend upon the stage of growth and environmental conditions, day to day consistency is difficult to achieve.

EXAMPLE: A large plant grown in cooler weather (requires ~10% run-off) may, for example, need to be fed 1,000ml over the course of a day in order for 100ml of run-off (10%) to be collected. If it is decided to feed 3 times per day and the day length is 12 hours long, then the feeds should occur every 3.3 hours (10* hours ÷ 3 feeds), and individual feeds should be ~333ml (1,000ml ÷ 3 feeds). *Generally cease dosing 2 hours prior to night time.
