Ripen is a superb late bloom feed that has the perfect nutrient formulation for the end of flowering/fruiting. Due to its unique composition, Ripen accelerates the final stage of flowering to provide a fantastic finish to your fruits and flowers before flushing.
It can also be used to speed up the flowering process for an early finish - which proves very useful if you're struggling from a mite infestation or pest problem. A complete replacement for your normal bloom nutrient, Ripen is a pure flowering feed which we highly recommend in all growing media.
Use at 4-5mls per Litre for 2 weeks maximum prior to desired harvesting date.
- Kit Contains
Ripen is now available in larger 5 litre bottles.

Questions and Answers (7)Hi just wondering i notice you say this is a complete replacement for your nutrient feed. Does this mean you wouldn't use pk 13/14 either during your final week of feeding? Apologies if this is a silly question.You would use the General Hydroponics Ripen on it's own @ 4-5ml per litre for 1 week, then use a flush & plain water for the final week. You would not use Ripen in conjunction with PK13/14.
Written by Tim | 14 Aug 2013im two weeks from harvest in soil,if i use ripen on last 2weeks do i still use A+B and boost,also how much ripen do i put to 10ltr of water...tyHi, Ripen is a complete replacement for you bloom feed & additives, you would use 40-50ml of ripen in 10 litres of water.
Written by SP | 10 Jan 2013Do i have to measure cf when using ripen? If so whats best for it?You would use ripen as a complete replacement for all nutrients & boosters for the week before flushing. It is hard to provide a cF level without knowing the cF of your plain water before nutrients are added. I would advise adding Ripen to your tank at 4-5 ml per litre.
Written by paul | 29 Nov 2012hi, you say not to ph when using in soil can i still use my A and B with this product and can i feed every day as i've been given different advise on the bottle it says feed every other feed so what would i use in between feeding. would i need to use my normal flower feed with A and B and ph the water ?General Hydroponics Ripen is designed to be used as a replacement for your bloom feed. If you use it every other watering, I would use plain water in between with no additives or pH adjustment.
Written by rick | 5 Aug 2012should you adjust ph levels when using ripen?or when flushingYou would pH adjust the Ripen unless you're growing in soil, we would not recommend any pH adjustments whilst flushing.
Written by dave | 19 Feb 2012Can you use ripen in soil?Ripen can be used in soil, coco, & hydroponics, it is used as a complete replacement for your bloom feed in the last but one week before flushing.
Written by gary | 16 Nov 2011If i was going to harvest on the 20th !!. On which day should i stop using ripen and carry on flush with water?You would use General Hydroponics Ripen for a week beforeyour final week . In your final week, you would use a flushing agent, such as Vita Link Flush for 2-3 days, then finish off with just water.
