Aqua Flakes A&B – Hydroponic Nutrients

Designed specifically for recirculating hydroponic systems, Aqua Flakes A&B contains increased levels of macronutrients and micronutrients to ensure an optimal absorption rate by your plants. In a re-circulating system, the water passes through a magnetically driven pump, which can remove certain elements such as iron and magnesium. To maintain a properly balanced nutrient solution in such systems, House & Garden Nutrients has boosted these levels to provide plants with high quality nutrition in such systems.

Aqua Flakes A&B is compatible with all forms of recirculating hydroponics, including ebb & flow, deep water culture (DWC), nutrient film technique (NFT), aeroponic and drip systems. Aqua Flakes A&B can also be used with almost any growing media, including rockwool, hydroton, coconut coir, oasis cubes, and sphagnum peat moss. If you have a standing reservoir that stores the nutrient solution and your solution returns to your reservoir, the best choice is always Aqua Flakes A&B.

Aqua Flakes is a two-part base nutrient and should be used continuously through the vegetative and flowering stages. It is made from the highest food grade ingredients available. Concentrated and pure, Aqua Flakes A&B will keep your reservoirs clean. Aqua Flakes can be used in drain to waste hydroponic systems if need be.

To use, combine equal parts of Aqua Flakes A and B with filtered water and let stand. Adjust the pH between 5.8 and 6.3, then wait 15 minutes before adding any additives such as Roots Excelurator. Never mix A and B together in concentrate form, as this will trigger a chemical reaction that causes nutrients to precipitate out of the solution and become unavailable to plants. Application may be adjusted to both normal and aggressive strengths.
