The Science Of SHOGUN Sumo Active Boost

The Science Of SHOGUN Sumo Active Boost

Alex Grady

SHOGUN Sumo Active Boost really packs a punch! Use it in hydro, coco or soil during flowering to:

  • Drive shoot growth, flowering and bud formation
  • Get bigger plants with lush, greener leaves
  • Ramp up essential oil production (taste, aroma, size)

All of that, and it will never ferment, froth or leave residue in your tank or system. There's no chance of it blocking pumps, pipes or drippers.

How is it so good? Here's the science explained.

0.05% Triacontanol (key ingredient)

Triacontanol is a natural ingredient. It comes from plants and beeswax.

Why add it?

When absorbed by plants, it really improves:

  • CO2 assimilation
  • Transpiration (how water and nutrients travel through plants)
  • Photosynthesis (sugar production)

Plants can breathe better, produce more energy and keep cool under stressful conditions.

100% Stable in Tanks

The triacontanol in SHOGUN Sumo Active Boost stays stable in tanks for up to 14 days. Even if your nutrient temperature rises or your oxygen level becomes too high.


A cutting-edge emulsifier has been added, which has anti-foaming properties. Even in aerated solutions, it will not foam.

With the emulsifier added:

  • There's a low solid content. This reduces tank residue
  • There are no fermentable compounds in it - you won't get any separation issues or odours!
  • The pH is stable!

With a dilution rate as low as 1ml per 1L, this stuff will stay stable for up to 14 days.

Natural Plant Extract (key ingredient)

Each bottle's brimming with amino acids, cytokinins, brassinosteroids, vitamins and auxins - all which come from a unique plant extract.

Cell burst extraction

Traditionally, plant hormones are extracted chemically, with an acid or alkaline. This tends to break down naturally occurring growth hormones, rendering them useless.

To prevent this, we developed a different method. Using seaweed from the South Atlantic, plant cells were burst at a high pressure. This keeps levels of plant growth hormones high!


This is involved in elongation growth. The exact auxin and function depends on where it is in the plant, and what function it's being used in.


These assist enzyme activity, which speeds up metabolic processes in your plant.


These are the building blocks of complex compounds. These are involved in many functions - from increasing heat tolerance to chlorophyll production.


Plant sterols are known to stimulate cell dividion and elongation. Only a small amount of brassinosteroids are present - enough to work with other plant hormones, regulate growth and cell differentiation.

Amino Acids

These are a group of hormones that regulate cell division and promote growth. They work with auxins to control the type of growth that occurs. From shoot growth (high cytokinin, low auxin ratio) to root growth (low cytokinin, high auxin ratio).

How to Use

Use it as a root feed or foliar spray.

Flowering (Root)

Add 1 - 2ml/L during flowering and mix well. Add after adjusting your pH (and after adding SHOGUN Silicon if using)

Flowering (Foliar)

Mix 2ml/L with water and apply first at the start of flowering, then again 28 days later. Spray just before or just after lights go off.

Veg growth

To stimulate leaf growth and rooting, apply 0.5ml - 1ml/L during vegetative growth.

Stress reliever

If your grow room is much colder at night (40% or more), use Sumo Active Boost to help plants cope. Apply at 2ml/L as a foliar spray or root feed.
