Simply put, four of the most powerful, well refined and cost efficient supplements for indoor and outdoor growers alike.
We have all seen labels on products that claim “30% Larger yield boost! Fat flowers and intense aromas! Massive vigor and oil production!” Typically these claims are on the ‘supplement’ side of the nutrient table. When growing you have quite a variety of brands of different nutrients and supplements in which to feed your plants with. Wading through all the b.s. claims can be a whole other mission however.
Keep in mind that every nutrient line makes their ‘base’ nutrients (maybe 2 or 3 parts) and then continue to barrage you with other ‘supplement’ nutrients that really help you complete the tools needed for an incredible harvest. With the basics, you will harvest the basic. With a complete arsenal of all the right base nutrients, supplements, and biological’s, you will harvest the best. Just like a professional bodybuilder, you need the right tools (nutrients and supplements) to be Mr. Universe.
I typically roll my eyes when listening to the claims of what most supplements can do. But this my friends, is the first ‘snake oil’ that REALLY REALLY WORKS. I have tried it in both hydroponics and soil and have harvested cola’s that were 25-30% wider and internode length dramatically shortened.
When using Bushmaster it’s best to apply it the day you switch your plants to 12/12 hour cycle for maximum results. It forces the plant almost instantly into sexual maturity and nearly skips the entire ‘stretch’ phase that is common when switching a plant to flower. This week is typically called “transition” week. With Bushmaster, the plant seems to change it’s energy from stretching to widening cola’s and tightening internode lengths so that your flowers stack up tighter and larger than ever before. This single supplement is only used one time in soil, or run for a week straight at very low dosage of 1/2 ml to 1 ml per gallon of water in your reservoir. When you run it for a week straight, you must cut your base nutrients and other supplements by half the dose at least, until you are sure how your plants handle the Bushmaster. Keep in mind, this product is not to be messed with, you MUST follow the instructions :)
Using Gravity continuously in hydroponics also produces stellar results. They call Gravity ‘Viagra for plants’ I call it the ‘bowling-ball for plants.’ After running this stuff from week four all the way until I flushed and harvested, even the main cola’s we’re unable to stand on their own, all arms are drooped over and hanging from the trellis. The weight and density of these flowers is insane! Dried flowers feel like rocks in your hands! I run 1 ML per FIVE GALLONS continuously. You can use more for shorter time, but this method seems to work best. If using Gravity in soil, apply it 3 times total, once a week in week 4, 5, & 6 with 1 ml / gallon of water. I use Snow Storm at the same time with it’s low dose ( 2 ml / gallon) always in the reservoir.
Snow Storm Ultra and Purple Maxx are very similar products. They are both resin builders. They created extreme crystallization and swelling of essential oils. Only difference is the Purple Maxx can create a very dark purple coloring in some of your various flower strains. Some strains become super purple, some just a hint. I prefer to use the Snow Storm Ultra because it frosts and swells my resin glands up and doesn’t alter the color in any way. I have never had such furry, frosty snow stormed flowers in my life. So much essential oil, people’s jaws drop when they see it. Snow Storm is a product that truly lives up to it’s name!
These products are also fully compatible with the new Humboldt County’s Own boosters; Crystal Burst at 1 teaspoon per gallon and Killer Tea at 1 ounce per gallon in bloom. Give us a call any time at Gorilla Gardener in San Diego for more detailed instructions on how to use this stuff. I’ve tried a few different application methods, and now that I feel confident in the bad-assness of this product line, I want to spread the word! These supplements are made up in the hills of Northern California by gardeners, for gardeners. Maximum respect to Humboldt County’s Own mad scientists!
