About SUNSHINE Complete Nutrition System

The 4 secrets of getting your plants with the amazing look are:

  1. the right nutrients
  2. the right soil
  3. proper care
  4. lots of light

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.

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.

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.

Application of SUNSHINE Boosters

What a plant needs through its 6 stages of growing cycle

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.

Apply the following plant food and supplements according to the stage of plant development.

Part I. Nutrients for every watering:

A. SUNSHINE Macro-Boosters (NPK).

Simply one solution per each stage of plant development.
Dosage: 25 ml/gal

#3. TotalFeed - transition pre-flower stage, week 4 to 5
#4. Megaflor - flowering, week 6 to 8
#5. C-Cibus - ripening, week 9 to 11

B. SUNSHINE Micro-Boosters:

Constanta - comprehensive, full-spectrum micro element complex
Dosage: 5 ml/gal

Water solution tips:

  • Prepare solution right before use and do not store solution more than 1 day.
  • All solutions in SUNSHINE Booster Nutrition System (NPK-macro and micro-boosters) are compatible.
  • Dissolve nutrients first, then add the rest of the water and stir well
  • Apply Sunshine Epi first, before other applications for better effect
  • Use DISTILLED water: Sunshine Epi - brassinosteroid bio-stimulant - should be mixed with distilled water separately from other boosters. It is very bio-active, and if mixed with other compounds, oxidizes quickly which may affect its performance. Apply as foliar spray only (it only works on contact with leaves and not through the root system).
  • Use clean TAP water: all macro- and micro- nutrients.
  • When using Micro- and Macro-boosters, you may mix all components in one watering can/tank (except for Epi), using regular tap water.
  • Besides watering root ball, macro-micro solution can be also used for foliar spray. It is optional, as in some circumstances growers prefer to keep leaves dry at all times: to stay away from mold, fungus and other issues caused by wet environment.
  • Give enough water for 10-20% runoff, and always remove runoff
  • If the stage of a plant development lasts longer than the time indicated in the table, use the last recipe indicated for the stage. For example, if a vegetative stage is indicated for the 2nd and 3rd week, use the recipe for the third week throughout the vegetative stage.
  • Repeat Week 3 for a longer vegetative period, Repeat Week 8 for a longer flowering stage
  • Keep concentrates and solutions protected from bright sunlight.
  • Do not mix with other concentrated fertilizers
  • For smaller amounts use drop bottles (1 ml = 30 drops)


Adjusting pH and correcting element deficiencies

  • Check and adjust pH on regular basis to prevent deficiencies.
  • If you’ve confirmed your pH is in the correct range and you’re still seeing nutrient deficiencies, increase the amount of nutrients you’re giving your plants.
  • Add all nutrients before adjusting pH. Use SUNSHINE-Power to maintain pH between 5.5-6.5. It can be used with every watering. Additionally, it dechlorinates tap water and is used to lower the pH of a fertilizer solution.
  • Correct complex deficiencies using SUNSHINE Constanta, SuperFood
  • Correcting iron deficiency (chlorosis, yellowing leaves with darke veins): use SUNSHINE™ GreenLeaf, a very potent Iron supplement to make plants green very quickly
  • Week and stressed plants (water-stressed, heat stressed, cold-stressed etc.): use SUNSHINE™ Epi which will boost the plan's immune system and help recover quickly
  • Use Ca-Support supplement to make up for the lack of it if you use soft (more pure) water and not a tap water (that usually has enough calcium)
