Go Beyond the Feed Program with GreenPlanet’s Root Builder, Plant Guard and PK Spike

Alongside GreenPlanet’s specially formulated feeding programs, there are many additives and supplements that are available to growers which have the potential to elevate your product to the next level. Whether you’re interested in rapidly expanding your plant’s root-zone, strengthening stems, branches and stalks, or, simply providing a highly soluble concentration of phosphorus and potassium throughout the flowering stage – GreenPlanet Nutrients has you covered. Here’s a look at three products from GreenPlanet that takes you and your garden beyond the feed program! 

Root Builder

GreenPlanet’s Root Builder is densely packed with two strains of extremely active beneficial bacteria: Bacillus Licheniformis and Bacillus Subtilis. Both of these microorganisms have different roles in the root-zone. For example, Bacillus Licheniformis is utilized quickly to break down soluble minerals and convert them to energy for the plant. While strains of Bacillus Subtilis mainly support a plant’s immune system by producing molecules called iturins, which target and eliminate sources of harmful bacteria. Without healthy probiotic supplements like Root Builder, stressful environmental conditions, inconsistent irrigation or a deficient feeding program, may produce a diseased root-zone incapable of supporting steady growth. To save on the stress of a stunted plant, invest in your root-zone today with GreenPlanet’s Root Builder!

Plant Guard

Plant Guard is GreenPlanet’s source of liquid Potassium Silicate, which supports plant growth and durability in all stages of development. Potassium Silicate is a valuable element that plants utilize at the cellular level to build-up defences against harmful pathogens, stress and extreme weather conditions. This resistance to stressors happens when the cell-walls of the plant harden due to the uptake of Silicate in the root-zone. The action of hardening typically results in the production of thicker stalks, branches and broader leaves in the vegetative state, and the ability to support larger, heavier flowers in the budding stage. 

PK Spike 

PK Spike is derived from several highly soluble sources of Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K) and formulated to deliver high amounts of PK to flowering plants. This product is designed to encourage budding, and help facilitate the bulking and ripening of flowering plants. To hasten the pace at which your indoor plants produce buds, add PK Spike to your base nutrient solution the first two weeks of flower, and then again at the last two weeks before flush to increase the density, fullness and development of your flowers.

Use Clean Nutrient Formulas In Your AutoPot Watering System With Our 3 Part AutoPot GP3 Feed Program

Our initial launch of the GP3 Feed Program

Justin Cooper, Co-Founder of GreenPlanet Nutrients talking about GP3

Simple Grow Systems Need a Simple Nutrient Program

AutoPot Watering Systems offer a simple to use automatic watering systems that can be used either as a hydroponic system or as a traditional soil irrigation system. It makes indoor and greenhouse growing easy for any grower. When working with AutoPot to learn how our plant nutrients could benefit their growers in the best way possible, we needed to understand what AutoPot users wanted from their feed program. We knew that the grow systems required extremely clean formulas with high-quality ingredients as the source of plant nutrition. We also understood that AutoPot growers wanted nutrient programs that simplified their lives, while still delivering an impressive crop.

These demands led us to develop two brand new nutrient programs specifically for AutoPot cultivators: The 2 Part Autopot Dual Fuel Feed Program and the 3 Part AutoPot GP3 Feed Program. GreenPlanet Nutrients focuses on pure nutrient formulas with readily available ingredients, making them an essential source of nutrients for any plants.

There were demands for us to make a 3 part for years, and not only making it, but making it better than what was on the market. GP3 has pure ingredients, better ratios, a more complete formula, and that’s going to give growers better results and better value. Each formula is 100% water soluble and readily available, making it easy for your plant to uptake.

Justin Cooper, Co-Founder of GreenPlanet Nutrients

A Proven Formula Tested By Growers

With proven results since its initial launch, it was no brainer to create an AutoPot Feed Program based on our 3 part base nutrient, GP3. Our Grow, Micro, and Bloom formulas have been tested and approved by veteran craft growers as their go-to 3 part nutrient in any grow medium. As mentioned, nutrients used in an AutoPot need to have a clean formula to avoid clogging the lines and AquaValves in the system. It is nothing but a headache having to isolate AutoPot Grow Modules in order to perform emergency system maintenance when problems arise because of nutrients. All 3 formulas of GP3 are 100% water-soluble, ensuring you can add it to your AutoPot Reservoir without having to worry about any build-up or clogged lines. The only thing you should worry about after feeding your plants is what’s for dinner!

With our formulas ensuring nutrients are available to the plants when they are ready to uptake them, the intuitive design of the AutoPot Watering System can function seamlessly. The AquaValve found in each module of the grow system will deliver the nutrient solution to the plant when it needs it, and with GP3, it is getting a full array of macro and micronutrients it needs at all stages of growth.

Nutrition Matters For Your Plants

GP3 Grow provides your plants with the optimal nutrients they require in the vegetative stage of growth. This stage is when your plants develop leafy green foliage and a strong root system that will be able to support flowering sites during the bloom stage. GP3 Micro contains an extensive range of ethically sourced, guaranteed micronutrients to ensure your plants are getting the highest quality fertilizer possible. These include necessary elements such as iron (Fe), boron (B) and calcium (Ca), all of which benefit the plant throughout its entire life cycle. Finally, GP3 Bloom delivers a healthy dose of phosphorous and potassium, which plants uptake in large amounts during the flowering stage of growth to product beautiful and healthy buds. All 3 formulas work together in every week of plant growth to deliver the fundamental nutrients your garden needs to thrive.

Get Growing With Our New 3 Part AutoPot Starter Kit

We wanted to make using the GP3 AutoPot Feed Program in an AutoPot Watering System as easy as possible, so we made a brand new nutrient Starter Kit to get growers started with the right fertilizers. The New 3 Part AutoPot Starter Kit comes with all the components of GP3: GP3 Grow, GP3 Bloom, and GP3 Micro. They supply your grow with the foundation of NPK and more.

You’ll also find a collection of additive and supplement nutrients in the Kit for added benefits. Our Vitathrive Propagation Solution is a comprehensive additive blend of vitamins and minerals formulated for the vegetative stage of plant growth. It is designed to reinforce plant health and support essential functions. Rezin is our aroma and flavour enhancer that greatly increases the essential oil and resin production of flowering plants. It will push size, aromas, and flavours to bring out the best qualities of your plants for a high-quality crop.

The last product is our highly effective bloom booster, PK Spike. Derived from multiple, highly soluble sources of phosphorous and potassium, PK Spike is designed to encourage budding, help facilitate bulking, and ripening of flowering plants. With large amounts of PK delivered to your plants, you’ll see earlier and more uniform crop maturity, improved flower quality, and tighter buds for a heavy harvest. PK Spike will not leave any biofilm or residue than can be problematic in an AutoPot System. It is an incredibly clean flowering additive that will help your plants thrive in an AutoPot.

It can be a struggle to find the right fertilizers to use in a grow system, especially with so many choices out there. With the GreenPlanet 3 Part AutoPot GP3 Feed Program and 3 Part AutoPot Starter Kit, we’ve ended the search and made the choice an easy one. AutoPot growers now have a clean, simple, and high-quality source of nutrients for their plants.

2 Part Autopot Dual Fuel Feed Program is formulated to deliver amazing results in AutoPot Watering Systems.

Increase your AutoPot Watering System Yield Output with our Plant Fertilizers

For us at GreenPlanet Nutrients, we’ve always had a focus on innovation, simplifying gardening for growers, and pursuing partnerships with others who share these values with us. That is why we have worked with the AutoPot Team on a brand new Dual Fuel Nutrient Feed Program and Nutrient Starter Kit designed specifically for their watering systems. For new and experienced cultivators alike, dealing with mixing, pH balancing and complicated feeding schedules can often be a hassle; and in some cases, misuse of liquid nutrients can lead to the detriment of a garden in both yield and quality of the product. Our hyper-concentrated and pH-balanced Dual Fuel formula has been easing the workload in gardens for years since its release in 2016, making it the perfect match for growers already enjoying the benefits of AutoPot’s simple gravity-fed systems. With a watering system that can produce indoor and greenhouse crops with ease, there is now a GreenPlanet Nutrients Feed Program to match.

”I would strongly recommend the GreenPlanet Dual Fuel with any of the AutoPot range because it’s very, very clean. Ben at the farm, where we hold the AutoPot Summer Social, used it last year as well and sang its praises so I thought I’d give it a try as well…really nice nutrient, recommend it.”

– Jason Ralph-Smith, Managing Director at AutoPot Global

Dual Fuel for Beginners:

            Dealing with liquid fertilizer for the first time is a challenge, especially when the stack of nutrients involves complicated ratios and constant pH balancing. From experience, we get how frustrating and time consuming it can be for growers. With that in mind, we designed our innovative 2 Part system to change the game forever. Dual Fuel, plain and simple, is easy to use. Whether or not you are a beginner or an expert, all you need for a successful garden is two bottles: Dual Fuel 1 & 2. Dual Fuel was designed to balance perfectly in the water at a range of 6.0 – 6.2. Although checking the pH of your nutrient solution is a good habit, it is in no way required to ensure the efficacy of your daily feeding schedule. With this attribute, our Dual Fuel feed program can save you time in your daily gardening routine and also keep your plants happy and ensure optimum nutrient uptake with an effortlessly ideal pH.

            Even more attractive to beginners is the unmatched utility of the Dual Fuel feed program. In a sense, it’s foolproof.  Our Dual Fuel feed program was formulated to be used in a 1:1 ratio with each part. So, no matter how much nutrient needs to be mixed, the ratio of Dual Fuel 1 to 2 will remain constant. This again saves the gardener time and headache, as feeding schedules are no longer required if you are only using Dual Fuel 1 & 2.

Here’s a tip: If you’re at all worried you’ve been using Dual Fuel incorrectly, check to see if both bottles have the same amount of nutrient left. If both bottles have equal amounts, you’re using the product correctly. In the case you’re over or under a few drops, don’t worry, this will not harm your plants. That’s the thing about Dual Fuel: don’t overthink – just grow!

Dual Fuel for Experts:

            If you’ve been gardening through the years, its safe to say you tried your fair share of liquid nutrient programs, and, that you’ve upgraded beyond a few plants to cultivate. Well, its time to stop searching for the perfect nutrient stack and settle on the second to none 2 Part program. Just as Dual Fuel has its advantages for beginners to the industry, these attributes are multiplied when its aggressive formula is applied to large scale operations, saving its cultivators in training, labour, and the upfront costs of liquid fertilizer.

            If you own or manage a medium to large size garden, you’re not doing it alone; there are many hands involved in producing a quality-driven, high yielding product. The overseer of a garden is responsible for many things, one of which is instructing the staff on the process of mixing and balancing liquid nutrients and water. This can often be a taxing process, filled with trial and error, multiple learning curves, upsetting crops and poor delivery on a high-quality product. However, with the Dual Fuel program in the mix, these worries are thrown to the wayside, as the pH stability and seamless mixing patterns of this product evidently attempt to flatten the learning curve of any potential master grower. In turn, these attributes will arguably speed up production time, and lead to a cleaner, happier garden.

            Furthermore, Dual Fuel 1 & 2 are hyper-concentrated, with the average application (depending on plant age, size and stage) coming in at 1.0 – 2.0 ml per litre, and with its marginally low upfront cost, this program is a dream for large scale operators looking to save on liquid nutrient. Unlike indoor gardening hardware, like lighting equipment, ventilation gear and other environmental controls, fertilizer is something that is always being purchased. Dual Fuel is a program that attempts to shorten the periods between these costly trips to your local garden supply store, as its hyper-concentration and easy mixing habits lead to less waste and more value per litre than any competitor on the market.

When growing in a gardening system designed specially to simplify the lives of cultivators, it only makes sense to use the easiest and most cost-effect nutrient program on the market as your source of plant nutrition. With our 2 Part AutoPot Dual Fuel Feed Program and 2 Part AutoPot Dual Fuel Starter Kit, growing with an AutoPot Watering System just got that much easier.

Choosing the right plant nutrients with our simple icon guide

If you’re new to gardening, you are probably overwhelmed by the choices of plant nutrients. You might have questions about the nutrients you’re using. “What are base nutrients?”, “Is it mandatory to use additive nutrients?”, “How can I alter my pH?”, or “What is the best nutrient system for me?” As a more experienced grower, you just want to know what you’re buying.

Quick Video Explainer of our icons

Being growers ourselves, we get you. We know how hard it can be to find the right products for your growing situation. With our icon system, GreenPlanet Nutrients has made it super simple for you to figure out what you need.


OUR PRODUCTS

GreenPlanet Nutrients includes many types of fertilizers in our lineup, including dry and liquid fertilizers. These fertilizers include base nutrients, additive nutrients and maintenance products. Whether it’s to provide a base level of nutrition, increase resin and aroma in flowers, and maintain your growing environment, each fertilizer is designed to optimize performance

GreenPlanet Nutrients has a product for you, no matter your style. We’re passionate about formulating the best, cleanest, and most highly bioavailable nutrients on the market. High quality nutes = happy and healthy plants.

You can learn about all our products by checking out our shop or reading our online nutrient booklet:


Fertilizer Type

Dry Fertilizer

This icon symbolizes dry fertilizer.

If you’re a “leave it and forget it” type of person, dry fertilizers are for you. Dry plant fertilizers consist of small beads or pellets that release nutrients into the soil. They also allow you to feed less often apart from watering.

Dry fertilizers are excellent for potted plants and garden beds, as well as
large-scale outdoor grow operations such as farms.

Outdoors, potted plants, flower beds, and large-scale outdoor farms are ideal growing situations for using dry fertilizer. GreenPlant Nutrients’ Dry powder fertilizers and granular fertilizers come in base nutrients such as BackCountry Blend, and additive nutrients such as Horti rawK.

It is important to note that dry plant nutrients can cause nutrient toxicity and burning if used too often. In some cases, it is better to use less fertilizer, as warm and wet climates will accelerate nutrient release into the soil. Follow the recommended feed program and adjust your nutes to your climate to avoid this undesirable situation!

Liquid Fertilizer

This icon symbolizes liquid fertilizer.

If you’re all about indoor growing and hydroponics, liquid fertilizers are probably your go-to type of plant nutrient.

Liquid fertilizers are useful for most types of farming.

Liquid fertilizers have the most variety out of all our products, and are useful in all styles of gardening. GreenPlant Nutrients’ liquid fertilizers come in base nutrients such as GP3 and additive nutrients such as Massive Bloom Formulation.

Under no circumstances should you pour liquid nutrients directly from the bottle into your garden! Liquid nutrients are highly concentrated. Always mix your solution first.

Please check our feed programs to see how you can use our vast array of liquid plant nutrients.


Nutrient Type

Base Nutrients

This icon symbolizes base nutrient

NPK stands for nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.
NPK stands for Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P), and Potassium (K).
Click here to read our Blog on what NPK is

Base nutrients are the most essential type of nutrient, as they encompass the foundation of your plant’s diet. Just like your diet consists of three basic food groups, plants have three basic elements they need to survive: Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K).

You’ll notice “NPK numbers” on the front label of most fertilizers. Different stages of plant growth require these elements in varying amounts.

Circled in red are how we show the NPK numbers on our labels.

Base nutrient systems also provide secondary macronutrients like Calcium, Magnesium, and Sulfur. Additionally, base nutrient systems also provide micronutrients, including: Boron, Chlorine, Cobalt, Copper, Iron, Manganese, Molybdenum, Nickel, Sodium, Silicon, and Zinc.

All in all, base nutrients are essential to plant growth, and you really can’t grow without them. As important as it is for you to eat in order to sustain yourself, your plants need to eat too. Although you can’t share a sandwich with your plants, you can give them a good base nutrient program that will supplement their growth.

Additive Nutrients

This icon symbolizes an additive nutrient.

Additive nutrients are performance boosters. They can enhance aroma, resin production, and even the size of blooms, when included in your feed program.

Some additives, like Massive, have PPM (parts per million) which is indicated by NPK numbers on the front label. To avoid overfeeding, you need to adjust your base nutrient system to keep your PPM in the ideal range.PPM can range anywhere between 100 ppm to 1350 ppm, depending on your base feed program, your style of gardening, and the stage of growth your plants are in.

That said, some additive nutrients do not have PPM. This is indicated by a lack of NPK on the front label. Rezin can be added on top of your base feed program. No need to adjust anything!

Whether you want bigger flowers or sweeter fruit, or just better vegetative growth, add some additive nutrients to your feed program. You’ll thank your plants, and they’ll thank you. Hey, maybe even your wallet will, too!

Maintenance Products

This icon symbolizes a maintenance product.

If you know someone who is high maintenance, chances are they and your plants might have a lot in common. Maintenance products maintain a certain aspect of your garden, and help you help your plants.

Things can go very wrong very fast if you don’t maintain your garden. The wrong pH, for example, can prevent ideal nutrient uptake, destroy root systems, and can even harm–or in the worst case scenario–kill your crop. For instance, if your plants prefer a higher pH, you can maintain an alkaline pH with pH Up. If you want the reverse, pH down will make your solution more acidic.

In conclusion, it is essential your plants have the right environment to grow. As refreshed as you might feel after a nice massage, your plants will also be happy after some maintenance. Maybe some music will help too. Hey, it’s science.


Like all living organisms, plants have life cycles. Their life cycles happen in three stages: seedling (or cutting), vegetative, flowering, and in some cases fruiting. 

A plant’s stages of growth have different requirements. For instance, indoor gardens need different lighting and nutrients for grow and bloom cycles. GreenPlanet Nutrients formulates fertilizers tailored to two specific growth stages: vegetative and flowering.

Growth Stage

Vegetative Stage

This icon indicates this product is formulated for use during the vegetative stage of growth.

Tomato plants during the vegetative stage of growth.

The first stage of growth is the vegetative stage, which includes seedlings/cuttings and vegetative growth up to the start of pre-flower.

GreenPlanet Nutrients Hydro Fuel is our 4-Part feed program dedicated to these each growth stage. Hydro Fuel Grow is excellent at providing your plants with ideal vegetative growth! Additionally, adding Vitathrive and Root Builder to your vegetative feed program further supports plant development.

Vegetative growth builds the foundation to support flowers. Good and healthy vegetative growth is incredibly important in bloom production. Poor vegetative growth will result in smaller and fewer flowers.

In the event you’re growing to harvest leafy vegetables (or you’re growing a mother plant to use for cuttings), vegetative growth is equally important. Although vegetative plants will not bear flowers or fruits, you still want loads of growth. The larger your plant, the more you can harvest (or cut for clones!).

But, no matter what your goal is, having healthy and vigorous plant growth in the vegetative stage sets your plants up for success. The bigger your plants, the more weight they can bear. Bigger weight = bigger harvest.

Flowering Stage

This icon indicates this product is formulated for the flowering stage of growth, including fruiting.

Tomato plant with flowers and developing fruits.

The second stage of growth is the flowering stage, which involves pre-flower, flowering, and fruiting in some plant varieties.

Flowering is the reproductive stage of growth. Plants are more concerned about reproducing and less concerned about developing their vegetation. Due to this fact, base nutrients designed for flower have lower levels of Nitrogen and higher levels of Phosphorus and Potassium, which help support bloom development. For example, Hydro Fuel Bloom is the 2nd part of our 4-part feed program, which focuses solely on flower development.

Additive products can boost bloom development even further. In particular, products like PK Spike and Horti rawK boost available phosphorus and potassium to your plants. In fact, P and K help your plants grow denser and larger flowers, so supplementing this in Bloom is often a good idea!

Another key point is if you want more resin production, there are additive nutes that do just that. For instance, you can achieve larger and more aromatic flowers, or sweeter fruits, by including products like Massive and Rezin in your feed program.

Making sure your plants receive optimum support and nutrition throughout all growth stages is crucial in achieving a great harvest. Additives which support your plants throughout every growth stage is an excellent way to accomplish this. Ocean Magic, GPF Uptake or GPH Uptake, Pro Cal and Plant Guard help support your plants throughout their whole lives. Happy, healthy plants result in great yields.


You may be wondering how to use our products, or what kind of feed program is suitable for each product. Thankfully, we have a means of indicating that.

On the back side of our labels, we have icons that show how these products can be used.

For Use In

Hydro

Products with this icon can be used in hydroponic systems.

Hydroponic systems include anything from drip systems, nutrient film technique, water culture/deep water culture, aeroponics, and wick systems.

Coco

Products with this icon are great for use in coco mediums.

Coco mediums are any type of medium that is derived from coconut fibres. 

Soil/Soilless

Products with this icon can be used in soil and soilless mediums.

Soilless mediums include perlite, peat moss, sand, gravel, pebbles, rock wool, vermiculite, rice hulls, sawdust, straw, etc.

Continuous Liquid Feed

Products with this icon are suitable for continuous liquid feed (CLF) programs.

CLF programs provide plants a constant feed of nutrients and recycles nutrient solution continuously. In other words, they are referred to as a “recirculating” system.

SIMPLE AND EASY TO USE 2 PART DUAL FUEL BASE NUTRIENT SYSTEM THAT DELIVERS EVERY TIME

Whether you’re a novice cultivator with your first grow tent or a master grower producing on a commercial scale, our Two-Part Dual Fuel base nutrient system gives you the ability to fine-tune your garden to ensure you get bigger and better yields!

This highly concentrated formula not only takes the hassle out of the vegetative and flowering stages, but it also does it cost-effectively so you can concentrate your efforts on what matters the most to you.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Dual Fuel is a 2 part formula that provides the nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K) and a combination of secondary micronutrients a plant needs at its various stages of growth. Both bottles are used in a 1:1 ratio throughout the entire crop cycle, making it ideal for commercial growers with injector systems and novice growers wanting to bring more simplicity to their grow.

Less is more with this highly concentrated formula which reduces the volume of nutrients needed to finish a crop. Together Dual Fuel 1 & 2 result in rich green leaves in the vegetative stage followed by big and beautiful blooms in the flowering stage.

WHAT IS IT?

Dual Fuel 1 has higher levels of nitrogen (N) and calcium (Ca). Nitrogen is an essential element that supports basic plant functions. It also promotes vigorous, green foliage throughout the plant’s life. Calcium is a secondary nutrient that promotes enzyme activities and plant cell structure.

Dual Fuel 2 has higher levels of phosphorus (P) and potassium (K). Phosphorus plays a key role in essential functions of the plant including photosynthesis, healthy root development, and nutrient movement through the plant. Potassium aids in the conversion of phosphorus into energy that your plants can use and strengthens cell walls to support larger yields.

Rezin is our flowering additive formulated to enhance the natural processes within flowering plants that produce flavour and aroma. This results in high-quality flowers come time for harvest.

Vitathrive Propagation Solution is our comprehensive additive blend of vitamins and minerals formulated for the vegetative stage of plant growth. It is designed to reinforce plant health and support essential functions.

Massive Bloom Formulation is our premier flowering additive formulated with all of the necessary microelements required to achieve an increase in flower size as well as providing several additional beneficial properties.

Liquid Weight is a supplement blend of simple and complex carbohydrates that support the plant and beneficial microbial life in the root zone. This leads to an increase in the absorption of essential nutrients that help develop impressive aromatic flowers and fruits.

HOW TO USE IT

Looking for bigger yields or a heavier flower, then Dual Fuel is for you, as this 2 part base nutrient constantly delivers to meet the demands of your grow.

At GreenPlanet Nutrients, we strive to provide the highest quality fertilizer on the market. And so, with growing interest in the field of organic gardening, we are excited to announce the official certification of our award-winning, 1-Part Organic Fertilizer: Medi One. If you’ve ever had plans to switch to a fully organic garden, your chance is finally here with the help of our OMRI Listed Medi One

The Benefits of Organic Gardening

Medi One is comprised of simple, yet powerful organic compounds. But unlike traditional organic fertilizers, Medi One is a liquid fertilizer that stimulates your plants with the necessary elements throughout the vegetative and flowering stages. Formulated from multiple organic sources, including hydrolyzed, slow-steamed Atlantic Menhaden, sea kelp, and naturally sourced potassium sulphate, Medi One is an overflowing reservoir of balanced plant nutrition. Not only does this fertilizer supply your crop with a well-rounded NPK ratio of 4-3-3, but due to the steaming process of fish and kelp which preserves naturally occurring amino acids, Medi One packed full of important micronutrients like copper, boron, manganese and zinc. 

Even more important than supplying plants with the necessary elements for survival, the utilization of an organic fertilizer can benefit plants in amazing ways not yet quantifiable by our current understanding of plant biology. David Robinson, expert grower, and author of the book titled, The Grower’s Handbook, expands on this point during a visit to a garden on the series, Growing Exposed: 

A lot of the benefit we get from organic gardening has to do with things outside of those 16 essential elements for plant survival. We’re talking about enzymes, microorganisms, bacteria – all these living things that are in nature. That’s a lot of the benefit we get from organic gardening.

Robinson, D. (2012) pg. 40

Medi One: For Organic Use

GreenPlanet Nutrients Medi One is now an OMRI listed fertilizer. But what does this mean? In short, OMRI, or the Organic Materials Review Institute is a non-governmental organization that reviews the inputs which go into making organic fertilizers. To be an OMRI listed product means that the inputs of the fertilizer under review, in this case, Medi One, have proven to be at a specific standard of quality and formulation. And so, by using Medi One in your organic garden, you can be sure of the standards, care and attention to detail that went into the manufacturing process. 

Looking for a reliable OMRI listed product? Try our award-winning base nutrient, Medi One. Medi One is the only certified organic product on the market today that can deliver the quantity and quality you expect from an award-winning nutrient. So, if you’ve ever thought of crossing over into the world of organic farming, your chance is finally here with the help of Medi One.

The Easiest Switch You’ll Ever Make

GP3 3-Part Nutrient System

You may be wondering, “What makes GP3 better than the 3-part I’m currently using?

Let us answer that for you: It’s just better.

  • Better sourced ingredients.
  • Better formulations.
  • Better value.
  • Better results guaranteed.

GP3 is one of the newest additions to GreenPlanet Nutrients’ line of exceptional plant fertilizers.  This unrivaled 3-part nutrient system consists of a combination of all primary, secondary and micronutrients in three separate formulas: Grow, Micro, and Bloom.

GP3 contains no dyes or synthetic colours.

All colours in GP3 are naturally occurring in the ingredients and are light, heat and acid stable.  What you see is what you’re getting!  Green Planet Nutrients guarantees no added artificial colours or dyes.  Besides, what would your plants do with added colours or dyes?  Nothing, so why include it?

More flexible than your conventional 2-part fertilizer.

GP3 provides more flexibility than a conventional 2-part nutrient system in that it allows the grower to have more control over the levels of nutrient their plants receive.  No fumbling, no confusion, it’s as easy as 1-2-3.

Seamlessly integrates into any feeding schedule.

Only want micro?  Just buy Micro.  Want to switch out your 3-part for something better?  Then pick up the whole line of GP3.  GP3 is designed to be seamlessly integrated into any feeding schedule and can replace any current 3-part system currently on the market.  It really is that simple.

Purest ingredients of the highest quality source.

The formulation of GP3 is derived from the purest ingredients of the highest quality source and contain zero carbonates, unlike a number of similar products on the market.  Carbonates are essentially useless as nutrients; they’re not immediately available to your plants as they are not water soluble.  Carbonates lockout nutrients – micronutrients in particular – and keep pH levels high.

All nutrients are water soluble.

All nutrients included in GP3 are water-soluble and are immediately available to your plants, so there is no need to worry about nutrient deficiencies and what we say on the bottle actually being in there.  What does water soluble mean?  As GP3 contains no carbonates, all nutrients are easily soaked up by your plants’ roots when they uptake water, so they don’t need to work hard to get the nutrients they need resulting in saved energy towards better growth and bigger blooms.

Super-clean product

GP3 is a super clean product: each formula goes through a rigorous filtration process during production to leave absolutely no sediment or residue in your reservoir.  GP3 also carries a low salt index, which means there is no heavy salt residue.

100% chelated micronutrients & a low salt index.

All micronutrients are 100% chelated, so you can be sure your plants will get the micronutrients they need to thrive.  A chelate is a large molecule that forms a protector or a “claw” around a charged ion to prevent it from reacting with other oppositely-charged ions.  When mixed with water, metals–like iron or copper–react with the negative charge of oxygen, creating an oxide, such as iron oxide (rust), or that blue-green stuff you see on old pennies (copper oxide).  When this happens it renders the nutrient useless to your plant, which is no good; including chelators prevents this and allows easy and efficient uptake of micronutrients.  As Iron is so important to chlorophyll production, GP3 ensures that there are three unique sources of iron included in the formula for a broad range of pH ranges.

GP3 is an exceptional nutrient system that is formulated to grow plants bigger and better than ever before.  If you want the best possible growth in your garden, grow with GP3.  It really is the easiest switch you’ll ever make, guaranteed.
