The Genesis Formula

Grow #1

This formula additive was developed to work in conjunction with its counter parts, the Micro-Base, Grow # 2 and Bloom # 3 formulas. We have provided two Grow additives because there are two distinctive types of nitrogen commonly used for plant nutrient. Nitrate nitrogen (NO3-N) and ammonium nitrogen (NH4-N). This formula contains only nitrate nitrogen. Nitrate promotes steady, compact, bushy, dark green growth. Nitrate becomes available at a moderate rate making it an excellent nitrogen choice for house plants or long term crops or plant materials with a tight or compact structure. Discourages succulence or elongation particularly under low light conditions. Nitrogen stimulates lush leaf and foliage development. Nitrate nitrogen is often desired for rockwool, because it does not react with medium and remains PH stable. Potassium included to enhance nitrogen and promote healthy stem and root development. Also provides calcium which is often deficient in other commercially available nutrients.

Derived from: Calcium Nitrate - Potassium Nitrate - Nitric Acid


Legal NPK percentage after dilution
This is the values in the oxide form (go here for explanation) 

N - 4%     P2O5 - 0%     K2O - 4%

If you want to see how to use these numbers to combine the Genesis Formula components to get a combined formula such as  10 - 15 - 25 or any other value or formula you might want to match go HERE
(Remember this is not actual, this is legal like you would see on a fertilizer label)

Below is the actual elemental percentages of NPK after you add water
to the one U.S. gallon mark

Actual elemental values after dilution

Nitrogen     4.05%       Phosphorus     0.0%       Potassium     3.34%

Nitrogen     40500 ppm        Phosphorus     0.0 ppm       Potassium     33400 ppm


If you add one milliliter (ml) of the Grow #1 (after dilution) to one US gallon of water your solution will contain in part :

N - 10.7 ppm       P - 0.0 ppm       K - 8.8 ppm        Ca - 10.0 ppm


     You may proceed on to Grow #2 or go directly to applications
