If you've been stuck at figuring out how to feed your plants, SUNSHINE Complete Nutrition System is the simple answer.
Topic of nutrients can be a pretty confusing for most people, even professional growers. Nutrient producing companies offer so many products with so many nutrient lines and extra supplements, and additional additives. Besides, most products on the market are quite expensive. What to chose so feeding your plants doesn't hit your budget? Even if you managed to select products that you think may work, you need to figure out the dosage and keep up with schedules which can be very complicated. This takes all the fun from your growing process that may become stressful and creates extra work.
SUNSHINE Complete Nutrition System has everything you need for successful growing: great growing medium, and a complete nutrient line called the SUNSHINE Boosters that includes not only macro elements (NPK) but all necessary micro-elements and additives. So it works exactly like it should - gives your plants the minerals they need.
SUNSHINE Complete Nutrition System is the simple and easy way to do plant nutrients while keeping the cost low.
Just follow the easy steps, enjoy the efficiency and watch your plants grow fast!
The SUNSHINE Complete Nutrition System contains 5 bottles with Macro-Food (Bombino, Robusta, TotalFeed, Megaflor, and C-Cibus) each for a specific stage of plant's maturity. These solutions are ready to use, no need to combine in differing ratios or to mix ingredients, just add water! Microelements and Calcium provided in additional 2 bottles (Constanta and Ca-Support). Additional bio-stimulants also available.
|Plant life cycle stages||Bombino||Robusta||TotalFeed||Megaflor||C-Cibus||Constanta||Ca-Support|
|Transition (Pre Flowering)||25||5||10|
|Early/Mid Bloom Stage||25||5||10|
Sunshine Epi (foliar): Foliar spray every 2 weeks or as needed for stumulating plant metabolism
Sunshine SuperFood: 5 ml per gallon at the beginning of the Bloom stage and 2 weeks after
Sunshine Power: 25 ml per 1 gallon every 2 weeks to maintain pH 5.5-6.5 and as mildew protectant
Sunshine GreenLeaf: 5 ml per 1 gal to correct iron deficiency as needed
|Regular Concentrated Nutrients||SUNSHINE Complete Nutrition System|
|Number of solutions to mix can be 10-20 and more, with dosage variations at least on weekly basis. Often confusing and complicated.||Convenient 1 solution for each stage of plant development, plus Constanta (mocro-elements) and Ca-Support.
Always same dosage: 25 ml/gal for NPK, 5 ml/gal for other boosters
|Ingredients must be mixed in ratios according to plant development stage||Nutrition solutions are ready to use. No need to mix ingredients and figure out ratios, just add water!|
|If one of many solutions/ingredients is missed, plants stop developing||All essenstial ingredients are present in solutions by stages. No need to keep track!|
|N, Mg, Mn and other elements affect taste and quality of edibles due to high concentration formulas||Mild concentrations do not affect plant taste and flavor|
|Recommended NPK rates too high for some hydroponics including cannabis||Delicate, gentle NPK formula that fits all hydroponic needs|
|Misco-element recommended concentrations tend to end in nutrient burn||
Ideal formulas for micro-element complexes, mild recommended concentrations, stable solutions
|Common injector error is 2-3 ml. Easy to overdoze and harm the plants||Injector error less than 10% of requred dosage, safe for plants|
|EDTA - commonly used chelator that is not a naturally occurring compound. It accumulates inside a plant tissue and soil while continuing to bind important nutrients.||Micronutrient complexes chelated with amino acids which allows to stabilize micronutrients in solution. Amino acids are used by plant for fast growth and development. They form very strong complexes with micronutrients allowing plant to absorb micronutrients.|
|Large (heavy and bulky) containers of nutrients, extra amounts must be stored away and require special storage solutions.||
Smaller bottles, easy to refill by ordering online at SunshineBoosters.com
|Pouring from canisters or large bottles can be a pain; easy to spill while pouring.||Convenient dropper bottles for individual applications are great for small-scale growers.|
Some nutrient products are heavy-colored with an odd consistency so you need a towel before pouring nutrients.
|Light-colored (color-coded) solutions are easy to deal with, and yet do not stain: nutrient water a lighter color.|
|Intensely-colored solutions make it difficult to use drop-type pH test kits||Light colored nutrient water makes it easier to use inexpensive drop-type pH test kits which can last for years|
The nutrients will last for years even when opened as long as they’re properly stored in a darkened area (no direct sunlight) with cool (but not freezing) temperatures. When stored properly, these nutrients can last for years.
Many manufacturers of nutrients recommend way too many supplements and higher levels of nutrients that are unnecessary. You can get great results using the more simple plant-specific nutrient levels, and it will save you some time and money.
Do not over-fertilize plants. As a rule за thumb, lower concentration with more frequent regular applications work better than less frequent higher dozes. Dosages are given for growing in containers. If plants are grown outdoors in open light soil - it is necessary to reduce these dosages by half.
