Hortimix Nutrient A

R90.00R1 650.00



Hortimix Nutrient A is a water soluble combination of plant nutrients suitable for use in hydroponic (soil-less) crop production systems, and when used together with calcium nitrate it is a balanced source of macro and micro nutrients.

When Hortimix Nutrient A is applied to the irrigation water as directed, the nutrients are readily available and provide for optimum plant growth and high yields of good quality.

Please note: Nutrient A needs to be used in conjunction with Nutrient B to provide all the nutrients your plants require.

For Flowering plants, you will also require MKP (Bloom Booster) e.g Tomatoes, Peppers, Chillies, Flowers etc.

Nutrient Preparation and Usage : 


Hydroponic gardeners benefit with plants that exhibit consistently strong, rapid, and healthy growth. Plants are able to reach their maximum potential when grown hydroponically because the gardener can make sure that the nutrients are always available to the plants in the right proportions. Nutrient solutions with pH outside of the optimum range can “lock up” minerals, keeping them from being absorbed by the root structure. Check your pH regularly.
