What IS Surge Plus?

Can it be used in hydroponics?

We don’t recommend the use of Surge Plus in hydroponics. As Surge Plus is a powdered additive, it is possible for it to gum up in the lines. While it is entirely possible for use with hydroponics, we don’t recommend it as it could result in clogging of your system and excess cleaning.

Further, Surge Plus contains Humic Acid. Humic Acid is recommended for use only in soil and coco as it takes time to break down to become bioavailable to the plant.

Can Surge Plus be used in an autopot system?

Similar to hydroponics, we don’t recommend the use of Surge Plus in an autopot system. It is possible Surge could clog your system and result in excess cleaning. 

Can I use Surge Plus with other soilless mediums like peat moss?

Yes! Surge Plus is appropriate for use in soil, coco, and other soilless mediums. 

Surge Plus multi blended additive key benefits

Surge Plus contains ingredients that offer numerous benefits. 

Vitamin B1 has been shown to significantly increase crop yields and encourage healthy and vigorous growth. B1 assists the plant in rooting, growing, and flowering which helps to keep plants stress free! 

Humic acid chelates nutrients like magnesium, calcium, and iron by providing natural carrier compounds to bring growth enhancing nutrients and vitamins to your plant. Humic acid stimulates root and enzymatic function and assists in the more efficient utilization of nutrients and vitamins. 

Surge Plus is also enriched with sea kelp which is renowned for its many benefits, including stress relief and increased amino acid and protein activity.

Extra carbohydrates provide an energy boost to your plant during flowering to enhance yields.
