Boost Your Garden with Aptus EcoZen

Improve the quality and health of your garden with Aptus EcoZen, an effective root and soil conditioner that works in conjunction with microbial life and bioavailable nutrition. The powerful blend of enzymes in Aptus EcoZen helps keep root surfaces clean, remove dead organic matter and root residues, and transform accumulated or precipitated salts into usable plant nutrients. It also contains a small amount of manganese, which stimulates micro-life to further break down and recycle the material.

Features and Benefits

  • Enhanced root and soil conditioning: Promotes a healthy soil ecosystem and nutrient uptake by keeping root surfaces clean and removing residues.
  • Improved nutrient absorption: Enzyme complexes transform accumulated salts into usable plant nutrients, stabilizing EC in the medium and reducing nutrient build-up.
  • Manganese stimulation: Encourages micro-life growth while aiding in the breakdown and recycling of enzymes' material.
  • Cost savings: Grow mediums can be used longer and for multiple cycles, requiring less medium replacement and reducing overall work.
  • Better flavour and quality: Enables fertilization later in the cycle without the risk of built-up salts affecting both taste and quality of the plants.

How to Use

  1. Add EcoZen to your nutrient mixture every feeding during all stages of plant growth to keep the medium clean and healthy.
  2. EcoZen may also be applied at double strength once per week if desired.
  3. Do not allow EcoZen to sit in a reservoir with nutrients for more than a few hours always add just before feeding.
  4. Customise your feeding schedule with the Aptus Nutrient Calculator for optimal results.

Aqua Gardening Suggests These are Best For

Aptus EcoZen is ideal for gardeners who want to maintain the health and quality of their garden while promoting healthy root and soil conditions, enhancing nutrient absorption, or reducing overall costs of medium replacement. It can be used with various plant types and grow mediums for increased plant health and performance.

Notes from Aqua Gardening

  • Flush medium between cycles with a higher dosage of EcoZen to clean out dead plant material and accumulated nutrient salts.
  • Do not leave a reservoir with nutrients and EcoZen for more than 2 days to avoid nutrient degradation. Ideally, EcoZen is added last to the nutrient solution, just before feeding.
  • Enzymes start to work instantly, especially at temperatures higher than 68° Fahrenheit (20° Celsius).
  • Use EcoZen at least once a week to keep the root area clean and nutrient assimilation optimized.


What is Aptus EcoZen and how does it benefit my plants?

Aptus EcoZen is an effective root and soil conditioner that works alongside microbial life and provides bioavailable nutrition for your plants. It contains enzymes that keep the root surface clean, remove dead matter and residues, and transform accumulated salts into usable nutrients. This helps stabilize the EC in the medium, improves nutrient absorption, and avoids nutrient build-up.

Why should I use EcoZen for my plants?

Using EcoZen provides several advantages for your plants, including:

1. Longer use of grow mediums and reduced replacement costs.

2. Stabilizes EC levels, preventing salt accumulation and nutrient lock-up.

3. Allows later fertilization without impacting flavour or quality.

4. Ensures a clean root system and grow medium for optimal absorption.

How do I use EcoZen with my plants?

Add EcoZen to your nutrient mixture during every feeding stage for plant growth. Ensure the medium remains clean and healthy. You can also apply EcoZen at double strength once per week if desired. Always add EcoZen to your nutrient mixture just before feeding and avoid leaving it in a reservoir with nutrients for more than a few hours.

What are the key ingredients of EcoZen?

EcoZen consists of cellulase and beta-glucanase enzyme complexes, a blend of sugar complexes (polysaccharides), and Manganese (Mn).

Can I reuse my grow medium with EcoZen?

Yes, you can reuse your grow medium for multiple cycles. To do this, flush the medium between cycles using a higher dosage of EcoZen to help clean out dead plant material and accumulated nutrient salts.

Are there any precautions when using EcoZen in a nutrient reservoir?

Avoid letting EcoZen sit in a reservoir with nutrients for more than two days to prevent nutrient degradation. Ideally, add EcoZen to the nutrient solution just before feeding.

Do enzymes in EcoZen work instantly?

Yes, enzymes in EcoZen start to work instantly once applied, especially at temperatures above 68°F (20°C). It is recommended to use EcoZen at least once a week to maintain a clean root area and optimized nutrient assimilation.
