FloraMax VegaFlora A+B
VegaFlora A+B is a professional 2-part nutrient that meets the demands of commercial cropping in hydroponics, soil or coco coir.
- VegaFlora is a single AB formula that runs from seed to harvest in hydro, coco and soil. This is ideal for commercial grows as it only requires two feed-lines and radically simplifies stock management. Additional use of PK additives will complement VegaFlora in flower to eliminate the need for a separate grow and bloom base nutrient.
- VegaFlora is capable of handling salty and high pH waters – as found in many bore/well-sourced groundwaters. VegaFlora will resolve or improve associated problems such as blocked drippers and a “cloudy” nutrient solution.
- VegaFlora is completely soluble, runs extremely clean and has exceptional long-term stability. When VegaFlora is used as directed in run-to-waste applications, the reservoir will remain stable for several weeks provided evaporation and light ingress are minimized. VegaFlora is also ideal for use with auto-dosing systems.
- No “cal-mag” required. When VegaFlora is used as directed, no “cal-mag” additive or extra nitrogen is needed.
- There are no tedious dosing procedures with VegaFlora – there is no waiting! Simply measure, pour then stir.
- VegaFlora is highly pH buffered: In soil and coco applications, pH adjustment is rarely required. When used with FloraMax Flowering Enhancer growers will require about FIVE times ‘less’ pH Down than what they would normally use.
- VegaFlora contains premium grade ingredients including fully chelated trace metals such as Iron DTPA and Iron EDDHA. The ingredients are stabilized in solution and carefully balanced to eliminate any risk of toxicity and ensure the best flavoured fruits. Also, VegaFlora is so stable it has a 10-year shelf-life.
- Available in larger pack sizes – 1L, 5L, 20L, 220L and 1,000L – suitable for large scale commercial applications.
- Dosage: 1.7 – 3.0ml/L (6.5 – 11.5 ml/Gal).
Our product development capabilities are backed by over 50 years of experience as analytical chemists in horticulture and 25 years as hydroponic nutrient chemists. One of our greatest achievements is ensuring that the full FloraMax nutrient line-up works together so that you experience a true expression of the plant’s genetic profile, not the nutrient inputs! This was achieved through unbiased and laborious field testing combined with rigorous crop trials and feedback from over 50 industry professionals.
You can be confident growing with FloraMax VegaFlora. 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.
Should I be adding *extra* PK additives to the FloraMax feeding schedule during bloom? No, the PK levels (Phosphorous and Potassium) are optimized with Flowering Enhancer, Resin-XS and the FloraMax base nutrient (VegaFlora AB or Veg-1). Avoid using Resin-XS during early-bloom as extra PK may negatively impact yields with certain strains. During mid-to-late bloom, we generally recommend using Resin-XS at 3ml/L (11.5ml/Gal). However, for heavy feeders, Resin-XS can be used at upwards of 4ml/L (15ml/Gal).
When using FloraMax, do I need a “cal-mag”? No, the FloraMax line is designed to eliminate the requirement for additional “cal-mag” additives as it is built into our base nutrients and Flowering Enhancer product. Over hundreds of test grows during the development phase there was never any need for a dedicated cal-mag additive. Furthermore, use of additional “cal-mag” may result in excessive calcium precipitate leading to clogged lines or build-up in the reservoir.
Why then does FloraMax manufacture a “cal-mag”? To address the deficiencies found in competing brands. We are committed to helping growers achieve their best results regardless of the nutrient regime they follow, our Ca-Mg-Fe product is ideal for use with other regimes.
Should I use an air-stone with VegaFlora? Generally no. For run-to-waste systems (soil and coco) an air-stone is not required and should be avoided as they can cause adverse reactions with organic additives, especially if too much air is being injected. If batches are being stored for more than a few days, System Maintenance should be used to prevent any build-ups in the reservoir especially if any light is able to enter. For recirculating systems, air-stones can be beneficial especially if the dump frequency is infrequent, however as mentioned above, minimize the air injection rate if using organics.
