Imagine Never Again Having to
Check and Adjust pH
Let me be a bit more specific... The Bigger Yields Flowering
SystemTM has a proprietary technology called pH-PerfectTM that
automatically puts your nutrient solutions pH and PPM into the
“sweet spot” for optimum growth and flowering, and it’s built
into every growing level of The Bigger Yields Flowering
SystemTM eliminating you having to fool with pesky pH meters
and PPM calculations.
Here’s how easy it is: if the water you use to mix your nutrients has
a pH between 4.5 and 8.5 pH (and that’s pretty much everyone’s
water) then you’ll never have to balance your pH or for that matter
ever add a single drop of pH up or down to your reservoir.
And how about never again having to remember complicated
measuring and application data?
Well, we heard you. All the base nutrients have been standardized
at 4 ml per Liter, so mixing and use is ridiculously easy.
Now get this, all the supplements have been standardized as

went the extra mile!
If you’ve ever experienced off-color leaves,
slow growth or low yield with your plants … then
you’ve probably noticed these problems coincide
with mysterious pH and PPM fluctuations. It’s one
of the biggest obstacles to getting “pro level” yields
from your plants.
In fact, many growers find that manually checking
and adjusting pH levels two times per day, to try
to keep their plants growth stable and maximized
is tiring, time consuming and one of the biggest
challenges of trying to get bigger yields.
However, these scientists discovered how to

Why Big-Time Growers Of High-Value
Plants Demand A Superior 3-Part Formula
While a premium 2-part formula like our Connoisseur is actually
the most effective way to precisely dial in the exact nutrients and
ratios your plants need … many growers enjoy the simplicity of
an easy-mixing 3-part formula … and they still want the most
effective formula possible.
That’s why they demand only the best when it comes to:
l Using 3-part formulas designed for their high-value plants …
l Using formulas with the most potent nutrients and ratios …
l Using the most advanced, state-of-the-art, “carrier molecules”
to ensure their plants get the maximum amount of nutrients
in the least amount of time …
l Using the formulas which have been proven, in multiple
scientific studies, to get more color, more aroma, more size,
and more potency from our plants …
l And using formulas which are not only highly-advanced and
easily customizable, but easy to mix and use …
Now you can use the only 3-part hydroponics
In fact, Grand Master Growers have found Grow-Micro-Bloom

you notice about most hydroponics root zones is
they are biologically sterile. Nothing other than roots are
alive in them.
Or worse, sometimes, your root zone isn’t sterile because
your roots are attacked by harmful fungi, bacteria, and
diseases that eat your roots and rot them ...
And when you focus on your roots, you might notice

the tiniest organisms produce
the biggest yields for you
Inserting beneficial microbes into your root zone is
easy when you administer Tarantula to your crops, so
let’s look at all the good things that’ll happen for your
plants when you do.
For example, scientists bred pseudomonas chloro-
raphis because it’s a “plant growth promoting rhizo-
bacteria,” or PGPR. Now here’s the really interesting
thing about pseudomonas and other PGPR’s: they
digest organic debris in your root zone by secreting
compounds called cytokinins that stimulate floral pro-
duction, plant health, and plant branching.
These cytokinins, otherwise known as phytohor-
mones, enter your plants and promote floral cell divi-
sion, branching, and also have an anti-aging effect.
Guess what…the anti-aging affect means your flow-

This Is The Only Growth Phase
Technology That’s 5-Products-In-One!
The first ingredient in this formulation gets nutrients into your
plants as quickly as possible. It’s an organic surfactant called Wet
Betty and it does something every plant grower wants …
… Surfactants are wetting agents that lower the surface tension
of a liquid (in this case, nutrient-rich water) allowing easier
spreading and uptake of nutrients into your plants. This of course
means your plants will get the organic nutrients they crave faster
and more efficiently than ever before—which greatly increases
your plant’s growth abilities.
The second and third ingredients are humic and fulvic acids.
These organic acids give your plants an edge when it comes to
growing quicker, stronger and bigger … with less stress … than
with any other formulation and here’s why …
The humic provides natural carrier compounds that transport
nutrients and vitamins into plants more efficiently, so your plants
grow faster and have stronger cellular processes. In addition,
the Fulvic in this formula gives you quicker nutrient absorption,
nutrient transport, and more cellular metabolism. Together, they
work synergistically to maximize the time your plants spend in

Sphagnum Moss pH.
So Let’s Take A Closer
Look At Them
OK, so we had a look at some growing mediums.
Now we’ll look at them and a few others in a different
perspective. In hydroponics, there are two basic types
of growing mediums: those that are pH independent and
Coco Coir Sunshine #4 Mix those that are pH dependent. Let’s take a closer look at
these mediums differences.
What’s Your Favorite Well, each one of them has a certain ability to stabilize

and all the other hydroponic growing mediums.
Now you might want to keep it simple so what I
recommend is that you use Sunshine #4 mix. This is a mix
that is pretty close to ideal and will save you a lot of work.
We’ll talk a bit more about that later.
You might even choose coco coir since it is also a
good growing medium and has a special line of compatible
Dependent Vs. Independent
Mediums that are pH dependent have little to no CEC
and cannot resist a change in pH and this results in the pH
going high or low very rapidly.
So, then, mediums that are pH independent have a
high CEC, are more buffered and can resist a change in
pH for long periods of time. And that’s good! That’s what
As an example your everyday, garden, soil-based
medium contains some humus and clay and is pH
independent with a high CEC because of the humus and
clay. They are great to grow plants in because it is not
affected by rapid pH swings.
But Indoor Growers Have To
Follow Different Rules
Now, hydroponics is different. Many of its mediums
have a low CEC and needs to have the pH continually
balanced and monitored. More on this later. Of course, there
are some that have a higher CEC and are better buffered
than others. For example, coco coir and sphagnum moss
have higher CEC capacities. This means they are capable
of maintaining a more stable pH level. These are said to
be pH independent. Sphagnum actually has eight to ten
times the CEC as soil pound for pound, but there are other
But not to worry, these could be easily remedied,
though no manufacturer has done this yet. You see,
Sphagnum doesn’t have the bulk density that soil has.
After all, it is a moss and is light in weight. But you can add
something called calcined clay to solve that problem.
These are the cation exchange capacities of different
soil structures at pH 7.0. You can clearly see how impor-

How To Measure Your
Growing Medium pH
So it’s important to monitor the pH levels in your
medium as well as your nutrients and the alkalinity of
water you are using. So how do you measure your growing
medium pH? Basically, there are three ways to do it:
1. Saturated media extract – you add distilled or
de-ionized water to the medium just to the saturation
point and measure.
2. Pour-through method – the water is poured
through the pot to replace the water that was in there
3. Squeeze method – the water that already
exists in the medium is gently squeezed out in a
measured amount and pH readings are taken.
In all three of these, you just use a pH meter or color
test to measure the pH. The easiest of the three is the
squeeze method. If you are using rock wool, you just take
one of the cubes after a feeding and you gently squeeze it.
Repeat this with at least six different cubes so that
you get a couple ounces or 60 milliliters from each cube.
After combining and mixing these six extractions together,
check the pH. This tells you what the pH is in the growing

that is the active zone for root growth.
Using pH Meters
So now, we should look at the meters we need to
measure the pH. There are so many different pH meters
available, but get one that uses dual solution to calibrate
your pH meter. It’s a good idea to get one that auto adjusts
and has ATC (automatic temperature compensation).
This will be more expensive but worth it. The cheaper
ones are a pain to use while the auto-adjust ones calibrate
at a press of a button, which makes it a lot easier. You
want to make sure that calibration is done every week.
If you’re fanatic to detail like I am you’ll want to have
a pH meter with ATC because as your nutrient solution
temperature changes so does the pH of your nutrients
when your nutrient temperature gets warmer your pH
goes down and when your nutrient temperature gets
cooler your nutrient solution pH goes up.
Here’s an interesting side note, a pH of 7 is considered
to be pH neutral, but in fact is only an approximation and
is accurate only at 25 °C or 77°F. A true neutral pH is
when the concentration of hydrogen ions (H+) is exactly
the same as the concentration of hydroxide ions (OH- )
and those concentrations are effected by temperature so
your pH neutral point varies from pH 7.47 at 0°C or 32°F
to pH 6.14 at 100°C or 212°F.
pH Temperature Chart — Contrary to popular
belief a pH of 7.0 is not always neutral, in fact
it really depends on the temperature of your
nutrient solution as the chart above shows.
That’s why it’s critical to make sure you buy a
pH meter that compensates for temperature.

At night beneficial microbes are at rest and respirating,

You might even cause your nutrient elements locking out

We will talk about chelates in a bit. Many of the
nutrient companies don’t bother with using any chelates

endeavor. And the lack of proper chelation is likely costing
you bigger yields, and you end up having to monitor your

The whole trick is to balance the cations and the
anions; then you can maintain the ideal pH in your growing
medium. This does take a lot of work and research, but it
can be done.
Why is this important? I’ll let you in on the secret.
When you use the cations in an ammonium based
nitrogen source, it gives off acid molecules and that helps
to maintain the ideal pH around the roots and in your
But when you use a mainly nitrate base nutrient,
you are working with anions which gives off alkaline
molecules and that raises the pH. This means you’ll need When you get it right your plants will have nice vibrant green

easier for the plants roots to absorb the macro, micro and
secondary nutrients that it needs.
There are several advantages of using chelates :
l It increases availability of nutrients.
l Mineral nutrients are prevented from forming
l Toxicity is reduced of some metal ions to plants.
l It prevents nutrients from leaching.
l The mobility of plant nutrients increases.
l It suppresses the growth of plant pathogens.
l When formulated correctly can help stabilize

OK, so lets take an in depth look at chelates. What
are they, anyways? Well, chelates are complex organic
molecules used to allow the micro, macro and secondary
nutrients to remain available to the plant over a wider pH
The chart on the left shows the absorption range of typical non chelated macro, micro and secondary nutrients. The chart on
the right shows the absorption range of Advanced Nutrients pH Perfect macro, micro and secondary nutrients. The only limit to
absorption is the ability of the plants root system to keep growing it’s roots faster than they “burn” back from extreme pH levels.
Typically those extremes are around pH 2.5 and pH 9.5.
The chelates that we use in your nutrients are EDTA,
EDDHA, DPTA, Amino chelates and our own proprietary
blend. And together they will give you a theoretical plant
absorption range of pH 1 to pH 10.
I say theoretical because at pH 2.5 the roots are
being burned up faster than the plant can produce them
and the same thing happens at pH 9.5

7.5 to 8 you can visibly see it.
Then at the other end of spectrum at pH 5, iron and
manganese start to become way more available and can
lead to plant toxicity. You won’t have to worry about any
of this with Advanced Nutrient products because of all the
chelates that are used.
You can plainly see that without chelation your plants
ability to absorb nutrients is placed in a very narrow pH
range. And constant pH adjusting and monitoring will be
