The MicroBase contains nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and the micro nutrients you will need in your recipes. Micronutrients are trace elements that are essential to plant growth. To varying degrees, MicroBase will appear in most formulations. This solution is formulated to provide all the trace elements required for essential internal plant functions without danger of a detrimental mineral build up from repeated usage. High quality chelated micronutrients, supply superior ion exchange, aiding in plant absorption and preventing elemental lock up, common with non chelated minerals. The MicroBase Formula also includes nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and magnesium which are used in proportionally large quantities by the plant. The MicroBase, is the foundation of our complete nutrient system, and should be used in combination with the Genesis Grow or Bloom supplements.
