APTUS FAQ

 

What is BASE? - Shop Now!!!

  • APTUS BASE ‘liquid’ is a 100% mineral-based fertiliser compatible with all growing mediums and hydroponics systems. The BASE is a 1-part nutrient that’s used from the beginning of vegetative growth right through until the end of the fruiting and flowering phase.

Why do I have to use a Cal-mag supplement with BASE?

  • BASE contains 0% calcium so must be used in conjunction with either MINERAL-CALMAG (our mineral-based ‘clean’ CALMAG) or MASSBOOST (our organo-mineral CALMAG).

What makes BASE so clean and why is my EC level so low when I follow the feed schedule?

  • The ingredients put into BASE were chosen specifically to not include chlorides or ballast salts which cause unnecessary contamination of the growing substrate. Without ballast salts or chlorides, the EC reading taken from your feed solution gives you a true view of the nutrient concentration.

Can I use BASE to replace my 2-part or 3-part npk.

  • Yes. BASE is cleaner, more efficient alternative to using the traditional 2-part and 3 part npk systems. With the addition of MINERAL-CALMAG or MASSBOOST, BASE provides faster, healthier growth, with less bottles.

Can I use just BASE and MINERAL-CALMAG and none of the Boosters?

  • Absolutely. You can complete an entire run just using BASE and MINERAL-CALMAG and have healthy happy plants. Imagine the boosters as optional extras, you can use all, some, or none. How you grow is ultimately decided by you and by the quality of the product you wish to produce. Some growers that prefer to run “clean” use our mineral products like FASiLITOR, BASE, MINERAL-CALMAG and BREAKOUT POWDER. While others growers, looking to produce the highest quality fruits and flowers, will use all of our products.

What substrate can I use when growing with APTUS BASE?

  • APTUS BASE works great with all growing mediums including coco, coco/perlite blends, perlite, hydroton, peat moss and rockwool-base and soil mediums.

 

What is MINERAL-CALMAG? - Shop Now!!!

  • MINERAL-CALMAG is a 100% water-soluble additive containing necessary plant-available forms of nitrogen (N), Calcium (Ca) and magnesium (Mg). This formulation has been designed to prevent common deficiencies while buffering your feed water when growing in soil-less mediums such as coco, perlite, rockwool, hydroton or recirculating systems and/or using filtered sources of water. MINERAL-CALMAG can be used throughout the entirety of the vegetative and flowering stages of growth.

Why does APTUS have two calcium magnesium products?

  • The reason we have two calcium & magnesium products is that they are both great products, they are just used in different cultivation methods. MASSBOOST is an organo-mineral calmag which can be fed either via the root (with regular feeding) and or via the leaf through foliar application.
  • MASSBOOST is a fantastic calcium/magnesium supplement but leads to organic biofilm buildup when kept in a nutrient reservoir for more than 2-3days.
  • While MASSBOOST is the calmag of choice for growers mixing fresh daily or bi-daily, the L-Amino acids and organic inputs make it impossible for use by growers running longer multi-day - 7 day reservoirs. For these “clean” growers MINERAL-CALMAG is the best choice. It’s 100% mineral, super clean and will never spoil.
  • MINERAL-CALMAG also has excellent pH stabilisation capabilities and is the CALMAG of choice for growers running longer reservoirs or recirculating hydro or DWC systems.

Can I use MINERAL-CALMAG and MASSBOOST together?

  • No, you only use one or the other otherwise you are double dosing with CALMAG.

Why does the manual give different dosage instructions depending on the water I use and different again if I use a 2-part NPK?

  • There are a lot of factors that go into making sure your plants are getting the correct amount of nutrients. In this example you have either RO water or municipal water (tap water). The reason you will need more MINERAL-CALMAG with RO water is that the reverse osmosis filter will remove almost all of the calcium and magnesium from the water source, so you must replace it with your CALMAG supplement. Most if not all 2-part NPK nutrients have high levels of CALMAG in either the part A or part B, so if you are using a 2-part nutrient it will reduce the amount of MINERAL-CALMAG you need.

How often do I use MINERAL-CALMAG?

  • Absolutely. You can complete an entire run just using BASE and MINERAL-CALMAG and have healthy happy plants. Imagine the boosters as optional extras, you can use all, some, or none. How you grow is ultimately decided by you and by the quality of the product you wish to produce. Some growers that prefer to run “clean” use our mineral products like FASiLITOR, BASE, MINERAL-CALMAG and BREAKOUT POWDER. While others growers, looking to produce the highest quality fruits and flowers, will use all of our products.

What substrate can I use when growing with APTUS BASE?

  • In soil, use once a week and in coco or any hydroponic mediums use in every feed in conjunction with APTUS BASE.

 

What is Finaleboost used for? - Shop Now!!!

  • Finaleboost improves crop quality by increasing production of sugars and amino acids. This Stimulates fruit and bud maturation which leads to a firmer and more nutritious end product. In short, …FINALEBOOST matures and densifies flowers while increasing oil production. The more oil the more dry weight.

Why does APTUS separate Phosphorus (Peakboost) and Potassium (Finaleboost)?

  • Phosphorus is needed in higher amounts for the first half of the fruiting and flowering phase to shoot and set flowers. Whereas Potassium is needed in higher amounts for the last half of the flowering phase to mature, densify and ripen fruits and flowers. Separating the two elements also eliminates the risk of mineral antagonism / lockout.

Is Finaleboost organic and how long can it stay in a reservoir?

  • Finaleboost is one of Aptus’ organo-mineral products, meaning that it’s formula is a blend of both organic and mineral inputs. The organic inputs, which are the hydrolysed proteins, are chelated with potassium and sulphur to increase bio-availability. This increases uptake leading to increased oil and terpene production.
  • Finaleboost is the cleanest of our organo-mineral products and will keep in a reservoir for seven days. Most growers are not as concerned about the slight biofilm build up, but if you want, you can stay on top of it by adding System-Clean to your reservoir @ 0.25ml per 1L.

Do I need to run the full line of APTUS to get the benefits of Finaleboost?

  • No absolutely not. Running Finaleboost for the last 3-4 weeks of any regime will increase the quality and weight of the crop.

If I use Finaleboost with another line do I need to drop out my current PK booster?

  • If you ask any of the APTUS team, we will always tell you yes because it is simply not needed. Although, we have many customers that run Finaleboost for the last 4 weeks of their cycle in addition to their current regime and report fantastic results.

 

What is Breakout Powder? - Shop Now!!!

  • Breakout Powder is a powdered PK (Phosphorus and Potassium) booster.

How do I use Breakout Powder and what will the results be?

  • Breakout powder can be used in two different ways depending on the outcome you are looking for.
  • Our preferred way is to run Breakout Powder at half dose (0.5g per 1L) for the first 3 days of week 5 (some growers run it for the whole week), then finish the cycle with Finaleboost. This method swells flowers, enlarging the bracts (or calyxes as some people refer) and improving overall appeal and weight without sacrificing quality.
  • Or you can run the old school way by adding it as directed on the bag / bucket for the last 3 weeks of the flowering phase. This method does produce much larger flowers, but you risk sacrificing quality and overall appeal. The loss of appeal and increased risk of “fox-tailing” is strain dependant.

Do I need to dissolve Breakout powder in warm water?

  • No, unlike many other powdered PK products, Breakout Powder can be mixed easily into cold / room temperature water.

Can I use Breakout Powder with my liquid PK?

  • No, unless you are very experienced and know how far you can push your genetics, always drop out your liquid PK when using Breakout Powder to avoid over supplementation.

In what order do I add Breakout Powder to my reservoir?

  • Always ensure all other boosters and additives have been added correctly to the reservoir and mixed well before adding BREAKOUT POWDER. You can add BASE / your npk liquid after Breakout Powder to reach your desired EC level.
