An additive is anything that is added to the nutrient solution as a way to supplement the main nutrient, boost growth or improve the overall health of the plant. Nutrient additives come in a range of different forms – boosters, stimulants, beneficial microbes, health tonics and quality enhancers.
All of these products can really boost the results you get from your plants and it is important to use the right one for your plant’s growth stage.
Tip: To get optimum results, we recommend using additives alongside a plant nutrient as some additives work by encouraging more nutrient uptake. If there is little nutrient in your growing media, then you will not see the benefit of the additive.
