Need a professional 1-part nutrient for hydroponics, coco or soil?
If ease-of-use is as important to you as yield and flavor then FloraMax Veg-1 should be your #1 choice in nutrients.

FloraMax Veg-1

1-part base nutrient | ONE bottle from seed-to-harvest  |  Ideal for high pH waters  |  Reservoir stability exceeds 3 months*

  • Veg-1 is a single-bottle that runs from seed to harvest in hydro, coco and soil. This is ideal for commercial grows as it only requires ONE feed line and radically simplifies stock management. Additional use of PK additives will complement Veg-1 in flower to eliminate the need for a separate grow and bloom base nutrient.
  • Veg-1 is capable of handling hard, salty and high pH waters – as found in many bore/well-sourced groundwaters.  Veg-1 will resolve or improve associated problems such as blocked drippers and a “cloudy” nutrient solution.
  • Veg-1 is completely soluble, runs extremely clean and has exceptional long-term stability.  When used as directed, the Veg-1 reservoir stability exceeds three months* provided evaporation and light ingress are minimized.  Veg-1 is also ideal for use with auto-dosing systems.
  • Veg-1 has greater pH stability than most 2-parts coupled with ingredients that can tolerate pH levels one full point higher than competing products.
  • There are no tedious dosing procedures with Veg-1 – there is no waiting!  Simply measure, pour then stir.  For soil and coco, pH adjustment is not required in most situations.  When used with FloraMax Flowering Enhancer growers will require about FIVE times ‘less’ pH Down than normal and NEVER need to use a Cal-Mag.
  • Veg-1 contains premium grade ingredients including fully chelated trace metals such as Iron DTPA.  The ingredients are stabilized and carefully balanced to eliminate any chance of toxicity and ensures the best flavoured fruits.
  • Available in larger pack sizes– 1L, 5L, 20L, 220L and 1,000L – suitable for large scale commercial applications.

nutrients for consistent yields_image onlyYou can be confident growing with FloraMax Veg-1.  We utilize the highest grade of ingredients available for plant nutrient products.  Also, every batch of FloraMax is manufactured by our in-house senior chemist and quality tested before being bottled.  Our products boast extra long shelf-life, typically at least 3-5 years, which ensures every bottle performs to specification.  Growers can be confident of achieving consistent yields from crop-to-crop.


“I’ve been growing for 15 years so I was skeptical before using Veg-1. How could a single bottle compare with 2 or 3 parts? …and no separate ‘grow’ or ‘bloom’! So I followed the feedchart… the Veg-1 regime way outperformed our best ever yields. I am sold!”

“Growing is so much easier, not to mention LESS CLUTTERED, now that we only need a single nutrient bottle all the way through”

“…amazing yield and taste, 100% perfectly healthy plants. Very simple and clean. The Veg-1 range is the key to bigger yields!”

Optimum pH of nutrient solutions
The key reason for controlling the pH of nutrient solutions is to make sure that the individual elements in the nutrient remain soluble. If certain elements become insoluble, a white precipitate will form on the bottom of the reservoir. Depending on the pH, this precipitate may take several hours to form, or even days. This means that whenever nutrient solutions are stored in a reservoir of either a recirculating or run-to-waste system, it is important to maintain the pH between 5.0 and 6.0 – with an absolute maximum of 6.5. This helps ensure that:

a) The individual elements remain dissolved in the water and are therefore available to be pumped to the root zone.

b) The individual elements are in a soluble form which roots can readily absorb.

pH range limits: pH values above 6.0 are to be avoided more than low values such as pH 4.5 to 5.0. All essential nutrients are soluble at these lower pH values. The precise pH at which calcium and sulfate begin to precipitate is determined by their combined concentrations. Except for fertilizers ‘low’ in calcium and sulfate, this problem commonly occurs at ~pH 6.5 when the net* EC is ~2.5 mS; or ~pH 7.0 for 1.5 mS solutions. As a general rule, to avoid precipitation, higher nutrient concentrations must be held at lower pH values. *Assumes make-up water has nil EC.
