Saturator® is back and better than ever! The new improved Commercial Edition® Saturator® is a concentrated, finely filtered, nutrient delivery agent designed to greatly enhance elemental uptake when sprayed on leaves with the lights on or when also added to your root fed nutrient solution and is compatible with most nutrients, additives, pesticides and fungicides. Saturator® was developed through trials in the Bio-Imaging department at UBC (University of British Columbia) where fluorescent tags were attached to carbohydrate molecules and then both root and foliar fed to plants for 20 hours, with and without Saturator®, then viewed using confocal microscopy to track the elemental translocation (flow) throughout the plant. The active ingredient in Saturator® that enhances your foliar spray has also been proven scientifically to be extremely nutritional to the plant as well, greatly increasing growth rates further! Win win for the grower!
Dutch Master® scientists, in conjunction with UBC staff, proved that incorporating Saturator® along with your root and foliar fed nutrients, additives, pesticides and fungicides will greatly increase elemental saturation within the plants cells! Saturator® is especially good at wetting 100% of your pot media, reducing media compaction, and dispersing the nutrients evenly throughout the root zone so the roots don't need to search for nutrition and the plant can concentrate its growth above ground. Perfect for flushing media in pots and trays between reservoir changes and an absolute must for that final pre-harvest flush when you’re trying to get that clean taste from your flowers! Add Saturator® to your foliar sprays to prevent or correct nutrient deficiencies real fast. And remember, you can spray with the lights on!
The Dutch Master® Commercial Edition® is a range of advanced nutrients and additives suitable for both professional and general hydroponics growers and is proudly manufactured in Chicago U.S.A. in an ISO 9001, ISO 13485 (medical manufacturer) and ISO 14001 (green manufacturing practices) certified facility - a world first in our community! This means our products are free from unwanted heavy metals as you can see on the downloads page where we proudly display our heavy metal analytical lab tests.
Usage & Mixing Instructions:
See Usage Instructions & Tips for in-depth root & foliar feed directions and advanced growing advice, and Feed Charts for recommended Saturator® dilution rates. Never mix undiluted nutrients or additives together as precipitation (fallout) will occur rendering some nutritive elements unavailable to plants potentially creating deficiencies.
Root Feeding: Add separately to water while stirring, beginning with Sila-Guard®, then Cal-Mag®, followed by Micro, Grow, Bloom, Trich-XL®, Zone® then Saturator® last until you reach the desired EC/ppm - measuring preferably using a calibrated ppm/EC meter. If you don’t have a meter, be sure to follow our Feed Chart recommended dilution rates beginning with the Standard feed chart before progressing confidently to the Aggressive feed chart. To increase nutrient EC/ppm strength, increase the dosage volume of Micro, Grow and Bloom evenly while maintaining recommended dilution ratios. To decrease nutrient EC/ppm strength, dilute by adding more water. Finally, check pH and adjust accordingly.
Dutch Master® recommends maintaining nutrient feed solution pH for Aqua Feed® and Media Feed® between 5.5-6.1 and Coir Feed® between 5.6-6.2 using Commercial Edition® pH Up or pH Down. When making a fresh nutrient solution, adjust the pH to the low pH point recommended for your nutrient type above, as pH may rise slightly over time. If the pH of your nutrient solution approaches the high pH point above, and it’s not time to drain and refresh the entire nutrient solution in the system, slowly add a little Dutch Master® Commercial Edition® pH Down while stirring and checking with a calibrated pH meter or pH indicator strips to achieve the low pH point again. Remember, adding pH Down is also adding phosphorus, while adding pH Up is also adding potassium so be diligent with its use. If the pH of your made up nutrient solution shifts drastically up or down in a short period, it may be a sign that the plant is stressing. Check for root rot etc. (browning roots that typically have a rotting organic odor).
Foliar Feeding: Foliar spray the top and, if possible, the underneath of leaves weekly with a combination of Sila-Guard®, Cal-Mag®, Trich-XL® and Saturator® mixed in water (never mix undiluted), pH adjusted to between 6.0-7.0, as per the foliar Feed Chart dilution rates, from cutting, all through the vegetative stage and up to bud-set (about 14 days into flowering), preferably when lights first come on, avoiding excessive heat and direct air flow on plants (turn off fans to allow spray to sit on leaves longer). Spraying leaves until slight runoff occurs at the beginning of the lights-on cycle allows plants to maximize photosynthetic response to the foliar application resulting in faster, healthier growth! If spraying with pesticides, fungicides or other brand fertilizers, reduce the manufacturers recommended dilution rate to 2/3 and spot test first because Saturator® will greatly increase the effectiveness of your spray saving you money!
WARNING: Avoid spraying light bulbs or electrical equipment. For the longest product shelf life, store nutrients and additives with a sealed cap in a cool, dark, dry area.
