New version of the hugely popular and effective mineral feed specifically designed for active hydroponics systems. Dilution rate: use the grow feed at 1-2ml per litre for young plants and 3-4ml per litre for mature plants, and the bloom feed at 3-4ml per litre (for cuttings and seedlings, we recommend the "baby feed" VitaLink Plant Start).
- Highly refined nutrient source for maximum plant availability
- Contains EDDHA (increases iron availability) and fulvic acid (aid nutrient uptake)
- A proven performer in all active hydroponics systems
- Separate grow and bloom feeds available in hard and soft water formulations
- Available in both hard water (HW) and soft water (SW) formulations
- Q & A
Questions and Answers (7)on the vita link max chart it says for the first veg stage to use 1-2ml per liter is that for a and b put together or 1-2ml per liter for a and then 1-2ml per liter for bIt would be 1-2ml per litre of each part.
Written by james | 14 Apr 2013Hi guys, I am going to get a single oxypot to try as i have heard very good things about them. What i need help with is nutrients, I cant seem to find out what is best for hydroponics specifically. Can you recommend a veg nutrient and a flower nutrient plus the dilution ratio please?The Vita Link Max range is a good choice for any hydroponic system, it's nutrient content is in a form that the plants can easily absorb. The dilution ratio will vary throughout the lifecycle of the plant. There is a downloadable feeding schedule on the Vita Link page on our site.
Written by John | 10 Oct 2012Using vita link coco as my growing media, in large air pots, would you recommend using vita link coir nutrients? or could I use vita link max? which i'd preferably do thanksYou will get a result with any hydroponic nutrient in coco, but we would recommend using coco specific nutrients, as these are especially formulated to work with coco media
Written by BB | 2 Aug 2011what is the shelf life of vita link max? does it degrade over time?Vita Link Max is a mineral based feed, as long as it is kept in cool, dark conditions it should be fine.
Written by wayne | 27 Jul 2011According to the research I can find, ideally a npk of 10.10.10 up to 18.18.18 is the best however I cannot find any supplier with this combination and their nearest appears to be the bloom of Vita link which is at least higher pk than most. Any suggestions please and could I use a bloom nutrient throughout the grow? Regards DerekYour research seems a little confusing. It could be a specific type of plant that you are referring to, but in general most fruiting plants require more nitrogen in the growth stage versus more phosphorous and potassium in the fruiting/flowering stage. We would not advise using a bloom nutrient throughout your grow, as these formulations will be deficient in nitrogen which your plant will almost certainly need. It may be possible to use GH Flora nutrients to create a feeding regime that matches your needs, but I would strongly advise giving our technical team a call on 0845 345 5176 where we can find out a little more and give you some more specific advice.
Written by growing tomatoes / veg hydroponically | 16 Jun 2011Flowers have started appearing in the second week of planting up. They are currently fed Max Grow. Should I change to Max Bloom even though the chart says change at 4 weeks?That depends on a lot of factors. If you are growing outdoors and flowering has been triggered by the light cycle that the plants are receiving, then yes you probably should look to move across to a bloom formulation at some point soon. This will give your plant the fuel it needs to form flowers and fruits. If you are growing under grow lights and have control over your light cycle, then you can carry on with your grow nutrient whilst in a vegetative light cycle. So long as you are roughly matching your nutrient to your light cycle then there shouldn't be too much of an issue.
Written by AP | 10 Jun 2011How do I know if I need hard or soft water formulation?The easiest way to tell is is to have a look inside your kettle. If there is a lot of limescale buildup around the element, you will need hard water nutrients.
