Nutrient Liquid

Dual-Stage Base nutrient

APTUS BASE is a dual-stage base nutrient designed for high-demand cultivars in both veg and flower. This precise, clean and concentrated formula contains no ballast salts or chlorides allowing for a cleaner and more responsive base nutrient.

Note: The recommended EC of BASE is much lower than most npk formulas. Consult feeding programs. Base contains zero calcium and MUST be used with either Mineral-Calmag or Massboost.

Application - Root drench

    Add BASE to your reservoir during both the vegetative and flowering periods of growth. Be mindful that BASE does not contain calcium and must be combined with either MASSBOOST or MINERAL-CALMAG for optimal results.

    BASE is a 100% mineral-based fertilizer compatible with all growing mediums and hydroponic systems. BASE is the only NPK nutrient product you need to use from the beginning of vegetative growth until the end of the fruiting and flowering phase. 

    BASE is easy to use throughout your plants’ growth cycle. Simply add at the rate of 4 – 10 ml per gallon with the addition of either MASSBOOST or MINERAL-CALMAG.

    BASE provides the essential macro and micro elements needed for plant growth throughout the vegetative and flowering phases of growth.

    The ingredients for BASE were intentionally chosen to not include ingredients which cause unnecessary contamination of the growing substrate. 

    Without these ingredients, BASE allows you to feed accurately knowing the true nutrient density of your feeding solution.

    BASE contains 0% calcium and must be used with either MASSBOOST or MINERAL-CALMAG.  

    Easy to use N-P-K fertilizer designed for both vegetative and flowering phases of growth. 

    Very stable in solution. Allows for precise EC/PPM targets to be reached.

    May be used in all major growing mediums including: soil, coco, perlite, clay pebbles, peat moss, and rockwool based planting mediums. 

    Nitrogen Macro element crucial to chlorophyll production and critical component of amino acids needed for growth processes. 

    Phosphorus Element responsible for the storing of energy produced from photosynthetic activity and is also crucial to root formation. 

    Potassium Critical to the movement of water, sugars, and nutrients in plant tissue. 

    NOTE 0% calcium and must be used with either MASSBOOST or MINERAL-CALMAG.

    If starting new from seed, dilute BASE at 4 ml per gallon along with either MASSBOOST or MINERAL-CALMAG from first signs of leaves. FASiLITOR and STARTBOOST are also recommended if applicable with your SOP’s. Increase dose to 6 ml per gallon as plants begin to establish. 

    When growing under high intensity HID or LED lights, it’s safe to increase BASE by 10-30% above the recommended dose to correct NPK deficiencies. While our recommended dosages are calculated from real world experience growing high-performance cultivars under high intensity HID and LED lights with the enrichment of additional Co2, there is always the possibility of deficiency with certain cultivars. 

    Base FAQs

    Yes, so long as it’s used in conjunction with MINERAL-CALMAG or MASSBOOST. BASE contains every macro and micronutrient needed to support fast-growing cultivars except Calcium (Ca). For this reason you must use BASE with either MINERAL-CALMAG or MASSBOOST.

    Think of BASE as a Part-B and MINERAL-CALMAG and MASSBOOST as the Part-A. You can choose either the mineral Part-A (MINERAL-CALMAG) or the organo-mineral Part-A (MASSBOOST).

    If you’re not following one of our feed programs and just want a standard dilution measurement, follow the below.

    Yes, the combination of BASE and MINERAL-CALMAG is extremely clean and stable and will last a minimum of 14 days in a reservoir or nutrient tank.

    Note: Recirculating Hydroponic Systems need to be topped-up daily/bi-daily with additional  MINERAL-CAL MAG and BASE to replace the minerals consumed by the plants.

    Yes, the combination of BASE and MINERAL-CALMAG is extremely clean and stable and will not cause any line blockages or salt residue to build-up.

    Feed Programs

    THE CLEAN PROGRAM

    This program is the easiest, most concentrated, low cost program on the market. The pH stability is so reliable you can mix and set your reservoir on a given day and it will read exactly the same (+- 0.05) seven days later with no adjustment in between.

    THE PREMIUM PROGRAM

    This program is the absolute gold standard of quality, flavour, oil production and shelf life. This is the program for the grower looking to produce the absolute best flower they can or any extraction artists looking to increase the quality, colour and yield.
