Ecolizer Basics A+B is developed by Ecoplanet as an optimal biomineral nutrient. The needs of the germinating plant follow a fascinating pattern, whereby absorption of various elements changes rapidly from phase to phase. Ecolizer Basics A+B is a combined biological nutrient, built on a combination of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium in perfect proportions. This stable basic nutrient contains raw materials of food grade quality. Ecolizer Basics A+B is balanced in such a way that it doesn't contain any superfluous materials. In principle, it is not necessary to rinse and drain the substrate. However, Ecoplanet advises you to do so every two weeks in order to keep your soil healthy. Ecolizer Basics A+B is very stable and can be used in small doses. Naturally, Ecolizer Basics A+B is ecologically sound and fit for all substrates and plants.
Ecolizer Basics A+B can be bought in packages of five, ten or twenty litre sets.
The growth table emanates from the fact that tap water has an EC of 0,5. In some areas the EC may vary considerably. If the EC has got a lower value as noted in the growth table, the procedure may be continued. Should the EC of the tap water have a higher level (f.e. 0,8), upgrade the level of the EC in the growth table with 0,3. The higher the tap waters EC , the higher the amount of parts the plant doesn't like (chloride / sodium). In this case rinsing the substrate on a regular basis is a necessity. (each 7 or 8 days).
When growing on hydro systems, wet your mats in the first week with a nutrient solution with an EC of 0,8 to 1,0 and adjust the pH value to 5.8. By measuring the pH -value of your drainwater regularly, you can collect a large amount of useful information about the substrate. With a healthy root environment the pH may rise, whereas a bad root environment may cause a reduction of the pH-value in your substrate. In the after case, this is because the roots are producing organic acids, so keep an eye out for this. Using Ecolizer Basics on heavily fertilized soil is not recommended.
