Aptus Base Boost Nutrient



What is Aptus Base Boost Nutrient and how does it work?

Aptus Base Boost Nutrient is a 100% organic time-release pellet fertiliser that provides complete nutrition for plant development for up to 3 months. Each application lasts 2-3 months and can be reapplied for longer cycles. It is specially formulated with macro-nutrients, micro-nutrients, L-amino acids, and bio-stimulants to enhance plant development over time. It can be used as a standalone fertiliser or in combination with other boosters for advanced growers.

How often do I need to apply Aptus Base Boost Nutrient?

Base Boost Nutrient should be applied once every 2-3 months, either by mixing the pellets into the growing medium during transplanting or as a top dressing to extend the growing cycle.

Can Base Boost Nutrient be used with other boosters for better results?

Yes, for advanced growers looking to maximise yields, Base Boost Nutrient can be combined with other premium collection boosters to replace a typical base NPK nutrient.

Is Base Boost Nutrient safe for young plants?

Yes, Base Boost Nutrient is safe and effective for young plants. However, it may take a week or two for the nutrients to fully kick in, so it is recommended to use FaSilitor and StartBoost at the beginning for a faster start.

How does Base Boost Nutrient help improve soil quality and stimulate micro-life?

Aptus Base Boost Nutrient contains organic nitrogen and L-amino acids that stimulate plant development and encourage healthy soil conditions. The L-amino acids also promote the growth of beneficial bacteria populations, boosting soil micro-life.

What are the key ingredients in Base Boost Nutrient?

The key ingredients in Base Boost Nutrient include L-amino acids (providing organic nitrogen), primary macro-nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium), secondary macro-nutrients (calcium, magnesium, sulfur), and organically chelated micro-nutrients (boron, iron, manganese, zinc).

Are there any tips for using Base Boost Nutrient in sandy or clay soils?

Yes, use more pellets for sandy soil (200 grams per plant) than for clay or heavy soil (100 grams per plant), per cycle (2-3 months). If your cycle is longer than 3 months, apply a second treatment as topdressing and water from the top or mix pellets into the top couple inches of soil.

Can Base Boost Nutrient be used for indoor and outdoor applications?

Yes, Base Boost Nutrient can be used for both indoor and outdoor applications. For better results outdoors, use with FaSilitor, StartBoost, and NutriSpray. For better effect indoor in pots, use with all Boosters (StartBoost, BloomBoost, PeakBoost, FinaleBoost).
