Nova Green Essential Organic 1-0-1 is 100% natural product supplying carbon rich organic materials in a readily usable form for soil improvement. This powerful carbon solution functions as a plant bio-stimulator and food source for microbial activity. Sugars, enzymes, amino acids, carbohydrates, a natural wetting agent, humus molecules and natural plant saponins and cytokinins improve germination, rooting, photosynthesis and overall plant growth. The cytokinins in Essential improve seed membrane permeability and increase germination potential, while high concentrations of organic carbohydrates provide the primary energy source for plants, very important for photosynthesis and other metabolic processes. Essential helps balance the soil’s acidity (pH), moisture content and boosts the CEC, making more nutrients available to ensure your crop’s best vigor. It can be used on all potting soil media such as coco, Rockwool, peat moss and perlite.
Applied to all plant strains grown outdoors, indoors and in hydroponic systems
All potting soil or soilless mixes such as peat, bark, Rockwool, coco, perlite combinations
Applied as a soil drench to outdoor field or containerized crops
It can be applied at all stages of the crops cycle including seed germination, clone rooting, potting, plug sizing up and field applications
Essential provides important benefits to outdoor growing such as breaking up soil compaction, neutralizing salts, stimulating microbial activity, increasing water holding capacity and mobilizing soil particles for better oxygen and aeration. It has the ability of mineralizing bound up phosphorus in soils to increase THC content. Essential encourages root growth, producing plants with strong roots that are better able to withstand drought and stress conditions. It also stimulates plant growth, healthy flowering and dense, flavorful and fragrant buds.
Hydroponic or aeroponic systems offer growers the highest yield, but come with challenges in maintaining sufficient macro, micro and organic nutrients, unlike when growing in soils. Lack of proper nutrition to plants can result in reduced natural flavors, diminished resin production and lessens potency. In both systems roots can be easily damaged if the system fails. The pH of water needs monitoring along with salts . Essential, when used in these systems, provides a balance for pH and salts and supplies natural carbohydrates, sugars, and other rich organic “building blocks” that contribute to elevating flavor and boosting resin gland production and potency.
Essential also can be foliar fed to plants, taking advantage of the dense foliage of plants. The organic nutrients, sugars, and amino acids stick to the leaf surface and a natural wetting agent and surfactant improves penetration of nutrients throughout the waxy hairs of the plant. Adding Essential to other nutrients as a foliar spray will improve overall nutrient uptake.
SEEDLINGS AND CLONES:
Get your crop off to a fast, strong start. Whether geminating seeds or producing clones, Essential is a key component in your production process. The rich organic materials contained in Essential will encourage germination, and increase root growth, branching and mass. Cytokinins soften the hard outer shell of seeds, allowing vital nutrients to penetrate the embryo within, setting germination in motion. Saponins produce inhibitory compounds that resist harmful pathogens and infection, protecting the newly generated, vulnerable clones and sprouted seedlings. Carbohydrates, sugars and Humic acid feed the hungry young plants while Yucca, a natural wetting agent, assures adequate moisture absorption.
Remember that plants will go through some form of transplant shock for a couple of days after transplant. This slows down the progression of your crop and opens it up to disease. Avoid transplant shock by adding Essential into your transplant water which supplies available nutrients such as sugars, carbohydrates, enzymes and amino acids.
CANNABINOIDS (THC), TERPENES, TERPENOIDS AND FLAVONOIDS:
Essential’s vital elements will add to the flavor of plants, produce aroma, and of course enhance the all important psychoactive delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Terpenes are the main class of aromatic compounds found in plants. Although, over 200 terpenes, and at least 85 different Cannabinoids, have been reported in the plant, only a small minority, has actually been studied for their pharmacological effects. Terpenes and terpenoids also work synergistically with Cannabinoids to modify THC and endow each strain with a specific psychoactive flavor. Genetically, each strain contains a combination of these chemical compounds and are predisposed to naturally generate them. As a grower who spends a great deal of time selecting their strain, it is in your best interest to use products that enhance, intensify, and increase these compounds.
APPLICATION RECOMMENDATIONS AND MIXING:
Essential can be applied to all plant strains grown outdoors, indoors and in hydroponic systems and is idea for all potting soil or soilless mixes such as peat, bark, Rockwool, coco, perlite combinations or applied as a soil drench to outdoor field or containerized crops. It can be applied at all stages of the crops cycle including seed germination, clone rooting, potting, plug sizing up and field applications. It can be applied as a soil drench and as a foliar spray. It can be tank mixed with technical materials and fertilizers to enhance their efficacy. Do NOT mix concentrates together. Always fill tank ¾ full with water before adding concentrates.
Enhances Nutrient Uptake and Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC)
Can Nova Green Essential Organic be used on lawns, specifically warm season grass? If so, what is the mixing rate? Hose-end sprayer?
Nova Green Essential Organic 1 - 0 - 1 is specifically labeled for use on plants grown both indoors and outdoors, hydroponics, foliar, transplanting or on seedlings. It is not labled for use on turf grass. If you a looking for a good liquid turf fertilizer you could use Coron as an alternative.
