What you need to get started
With over 20 products to choose from it can be daunting to buy your first set of Aptus products, because what do you need exactly? In this blog, we’ll show and explain the essentials of the Aptus product line.
So, we want to feed our plants everything they need to grow big and strong. That starts with a decent base nutrient, for your general supply of N, P, K, and micro-elements! Here, Aptus offers two solutions:
And that’s all you need to get started really! Just 6 or 7 bottles of super concentrated natural plant nutrients and stimulants to bring you to your first growing success(es). We have a bunch more products in our line-up, but these are the bare essentials. Read on to learn about a few more products you may want to consider adding to your mix as well.
We are convinced of the benefits of a healthy microlife population in our substrate, and so should you! Microbes keep the soil in good condition, protect your root system, produce all kinds of beneficial compounds, help to break down nutrients in the soil into forms your plants can take up, and the list goes on. Most of our products stimulate the microlife, and some contain specially selected strains of bacteria and fungi, like Micromix Soil, Micromix Drip, and Mycor Mix. These products are great to kickstart the life in our substrate but also to reinoculate the medium.
If you want to go the extra mile and keep your roots clean and in tip-top condition to maximize uptake, you should add Enzym+ to your mix too. It has the added benefits of stabilizing the EC in your medium, preventing salt accumulation, as well as feeding your microlife.
