Many growers prefer to use natural media in which to grow their plants. Nutrition for these media is more complicated than it is for inert media such as Perlite. After our research and experimentation we are convinced that best results with these biological mediums will be obtained by a combination of mineral and organic nutrients. This is, after all how plants obtain nutrients in nature. IONIC nutrients for soil and coco are powerfully enriched with complex organic plant acids, to increase nutrient uptake and enhance growth rates and yields.

Green plants depend upon mineral (inorganic) elements as their primary source of nutrition. Plants in their natural state draw their nutrients from a sort of nutrient solution, known as the ‘soil-water’. This is made up of mineral elements dissolved out of rock fragments in the surrounding soil; it is therefore a ‘mineral solution’. Hydroponic nutrient solutions are a replacement for the soil-water and they are usually formulated to the exact needs of the plant. However the soil-water contains much more than minerals; in healthy soil it is a rich repository of organic compounds that plants can make use of. These agents are derived from decaying plant and animal material and from the relentless activity of soil bacteria and detritivores. These include the complex plant acids that can massively assist the plant to assimilate the mineral nutrients it depends upon. It is surely clear that natural systems thrive on the combination of mineral and organic nutrients – the combination found in IONIC nutrient formulations for soil and coco
BOOST is a nutrient supplement designed to be used in the final few weeks before harvest. BOOST allows the grower easy control of the extra phosphorus and potassium that can lead to bumper yields. BOOST is an ideal addition to IONIC BLOOM but it can also be used very effectively with any good quality nutrient solution of the BLOOM variety.
IONIC BOOST is specially formulated to deliver the key elements phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) in a pure form that is instantly accessible to the plant. These crucial ingredients are used in abundance by plants in their flowering cycle and the extra levels provided by BOOST can lead to larger flowers and much heavier crops.
IONIC BOOST is also designed to top up levels of minerals that are usually in short supply in hydroponic tanks. After analysis of hundreds of nutrient samples we have developed a very clear understanding of what plants take up, especially during the flowering cycle. IONIC BOOST will replenish the missing elements and restore an ideal tank balance for optimum plant performance.
Q If a nutrient solution is properly formulated, why is there a need to add BOOST?
A A well-formulated BLOOM nutrient will give excellent results and for many people that is enough. However crops nearing harvest have a high demand for certain crucial elements, potassium in particular, and a vigorous crop can reduce the amount of available nutrients in the tank very quickly. Even if the conductivity is being properly maintained the level of these crucial elements in the tank can decline very fast. BOOST is an easy way to maintain an ideal level of the specific nutrients that plants need to produce truly heavy crops.
There are many products around that claim to provide a boost to flowering. Usually they are designated as 13:14 to indicate that they derive from a single salt containing that ratio of potassium to phosphorus. These products will certainly supply the extra elements flowering but the amount of phosphorus is far too high and it will accumulate in the tank. BOOST is a far more highly evolved fully formulated solution, containing the crucial elements in the correct including the extra iron and micronutrients that can greatly enhance firmness and weight of harvests.
