KIND® Plant Nutrient System

KIND® represents the culmination of more than 15 years of knowledge and expertise, combined with extensive experimentation and testing. KIND provides optimal plant nutrition in perfect balance to meet your plants demands at any stage of growth, in any medium. KIND was formulated to be more versatile, easy to use, and effective than any nutrient ever created. This ground breaking nutrient system provides the ideal balance to meet the demands of the most experienced growers, and the aspiring hobbyist.

KIND® is manufactured in small batches, completely dye free, and runs clean with low salt build up. A fusion of science and nature, KIND is the most technologically advanced hydroponic nutrient available today. 

KIND was created with specific N-P-K ratios that were optimized to allow 100% customization. This allows the user to adapt to the specific needs of any grow media, at any stage, while maintaining the ideal balance for optimum plant growth. The proprietary KIND formulas eliminate the need for separate calcium and magnesium supplementation to compensate for water quality or specific grow medias. This level of control is ground breaking and allows you to maximize growth for any plant, in any environment, no matter what KIND you grow.

KIND BASE 4-0-0 + 5% Calcium

KIND Base is unique because it contains all of calcium without trace minerals, magnesium, or sulfur. By including all of the trace minerals in the Grow and Bloom formulas growers can effortlessly customize their calcium and nitrogen levels without affecting the balance of these essential elements. This revolutionary formula was designed to allow for maximum versatility throughout the grow cycle. Using Coco Coir or Reverse Osmosis water? Simply increase the base to increase your calcium levels. KIND is ideal for Coco Coir based media, RO Water, and plant types that require high levels of calcium and nitrogen. Using Clay Pebbles, Rockwool or have hard water where less calcium is needed? It’s as easy as reducing the amount of base you use. Simply manipulating the level of KIND Base allows you to precisely control the levels of both calcium and nitrogen to meet the specific needs of whatever Kind you grow.

KIND GROW 2-2-4 

KIND Grow provides powerful minerals enhanced with a proprietary blend of all natural ingredients to maximize root growth, and sustain a lush healthy canopy. The combination of KIND Base and Grow provides the ideal nitrogen to potassium ratios for fast flowering annuals. KIND Grow is designed for the vegetative period of the growth cycle, but can be combined with KIND Bloom formula to meet the precise demands of your plant in any media, at any stage. This level of control is ground breaking and encourages maximum growth for any plant, in any environment, no matter what Kind you grow.

KIND BLOOM 0-6-6

Kind Bloom was formulated with an optimal phosphorous to potassium ratio to encourage healthy branch and stalk development, accelerate flower sets, and maximize crop yields. This ideal ratio provides higher potassium levels to increase biomass while amplified phosphorous levels promote flower initiation. KIND Bloom also includes an elevated level of magnesium which increases photosynthetic efficiency; critical for achieving optimum yields in accelerated growth environments.

KIND Bloom was developed specifically for fast growing annuals. KIND Bloom allows you the ability to increase the amount of potassium and phosphorous during peak flowering and ripening phases without additional boosters. Adjusting these ratios promotes maximum fruit swelling, yield, and quality. This is easily accomplished by simply increasing the Bloom, and lowering KIND Base which limits the amount of nitrogen available without compromising trace minerals or magnesium. KIND Bloom provides the complete nutrition your plants require to maximize both yield and quality.

No matter what Kind you grow, or what you grow in- KIND is the last nutrient you will ever need.

  • Enhanced calcium, magnesium and sulfur levels, specifically designed for fast blooming annuals
  • Effortlessly customizable.
  • KIND’s unique formulation is easy to customize for specific plant needs, growth cycles, and grow medias.

 

just switched to flower so far so great lol.

Q: Is KIND completely organic?
A: KIND contains a combination of high quality minerals, soluble organics, and natural stimulants complexed with absorption enhancing compounds. This balance of minerals and organics create a bio-active nutrient that is highly available and easily absorbed by the plant.


Q: What is the ideal grow room temperature?
A: Most plants do well between 65˚-80˚ F or 18-26˚ C for light and dark cycles. Having a lower temperature during the plant’s dark cycle is common. When temperatures are higher than the recommended range, you may experience more pest problems, reduced dissolved oxygen in the nutrient solution, and increased plant transpiration which can increase humidity and irrigation demand. Cooler than recommended temperatures may slow growth.


 


Q: What is the ideal nutrient water temperature? Should it be cooler than the grow room?
A: The ideal water temperature in hydroponics is from 55-75˚ F. There is less dissolved oxygen available in water at higher temperatures.


 


Q: How often should I change my reservoir water? 
 
A: We recommend changing your reservoir water completely every 10-14 days. Even though you can top off your reservoir with water to make up for water lost by evaporation and plant transpiration, you can’t accurately measure the nutrients left in the water after plants have taken up some of the nutrients. (For instance, plants may need / deplete more nitrogen during some growing stages.) The only way to ensure optimal growing success is to know the exact ration of NPKs you’re feeding by starting fresh with a new batch of nutrient solution.


 


Q: Are your products organic?
A: We have many certified/listed organic products and use many organically derived ingredients in our formulations. Organic certified compounds are naturally occurring compounds like bat guano or alfalfa meal, rather than mineral compounds that are mined or synthesized. While not all of our products are CDFA, OMRI, NOP certified organic we strive to use natural and organic inputs whenever possible.


 


Q: Which nutrients or supplements should I use to increase flower size?
A: Our bloom booster, Hydroplex, contains high levels of phosphorus and potassium which are beneficial for flower initiation and structure. Phosphorus will increase the number of flowers and potassium will increase the weight of flowers.


 


Q: I’m having a problem with scum in my reservoir, what do I do?
A: We recommend covering your nutrient solution reservoir to decrease light and therefore decrease the likelihood of unwanted algae, bacteria or fungal growth. These organisms need nutrients, light, and water to multiply and thrive. Keeping your room and water cool will slow the potential growth of these organisms. Clean your reservoirs between crops and plant stages of growth. You can use bleach or hydrogen peroxide to clean them, but rinse well to remove all cleaning product residue before refilling with nutrient solution.


 


Q: Which Botanicare nutrient system would be best for me to use?
A: We’ve created 4 different base nutrients for different uses and purposes. CNS17 is the simplest mineral base with all of the necessary macro and micro nutrients included in one bottle. Pure Blend Pro is our natural and organic one-part nutrient that contains natural and organic based ingredients. KIND is a three-part mineral based nutrient which requires no Calcium/Magnesium supplementation and allows the grower the most flexibility in application. Growilla is a dry organic nutrient formulation (OMRI listed/CDFA) which delivers excellent results outdoors in soil and in large containers.


 


Q: Should I use all the supplements you manufacture?
A: The short answer is, no. We make a wide variety of supplements that can be used for different purposes. Some products like Pure Blend Tea and Liquid Karma are fairly similar, but they were developed for different reasons. We recommend Pure Blend Tea be used with KIND to add flavors and aromas, and Liquid Karma be used with Pure Blend Pro base nutrients to add additional bio-stimulants. Check our website or product pages and information sheets for clarification--our website has some excellent Pre-Developed Recipes to guide you.


 


Q: Which grow medium do you recommend?
A: We were one of the first companies to recommend coco coir for growers, and we do think it delivers excellent results. We have 3 premium coir based formulas to choose from - Cocogro, Readygro Aeration and Readygro Moisture. Cocogro can be blended with your favorite amendments or you can chose our Readygro Aeration or Moisture depending on your irrigation needs.

Q: Are your plastics food-safe?
A: Our trays and reservoirs are made of BPA-free plastic, but they are not rated for food storage. Plastic pots are used to grow all kinds of food and are rarely food grade because the plant roots are not eaten. Food grade plastics are used to store, prepare, or serve food. Our trays are made from extra thick, high-impact, BPA-free ABS plastic and have a smooth finish for easy cleaning.





Q: How and when do I check my pH and PPM levels?
A: You should check the pH and PPMs of your nutrient solution after mixing the nutrient solution and periodically throughout the usage of the solution (if using a recirculating system). You should use a pH meter, colorimetric pH solution, or indicator strips to test the nutrient solution or the runoff from the plants. You can use a PPM or EC meter to test the concentration of the nutrient solution.

Q: When should I adjust my pH levels and what should pH level be?
A: Check and adjust pH after you have mixed your nutrient solution and periodically during the usage of the nutrient solution if using a recirculating system and the pH becomes out of range. We recommend a pH level between 5.5 -6.5 for maximum nutrient availability.


 


Q: Do you have a nutrient or supplement that is pH stable so that when I adjust my pH, it won’t change?
A: The pH of the nutrient solution will vary depending on the source water, the nutrient concentration, and the uptake of nutrients by the plant if using a recirculating system. You should always check your pH and adjust it to ensure best availability of nutrients to the plant.


 


Q: What is the difference between PPM, EC and TDS?
A: TDS stands for total dissolved solids, PPM stands for parts per million, and EC stands for electrical conductivity; which are acronyms used to quantify the concentration of nutrients as positive or negatively charged salts in the solution or growing substrate. Meters measure the electrical conductivity (EC) of the salts and can convert to PPMs or TDS.

Q: What conversion factor does Botanicare use for nutrient calculations to convert EC to PPMs?
A: Botanicare uses the 700 ppm to 1.0 EC factor. This is standard for most EC or ppm meters as well, but check the specifications of your meter to be sure.

Q: What should my PPMs or ECs be at each stage of growth?
A: The concentration of nutrients that plants require depends on their stage of growth, i.e. smaller plants need less food. See our nutrient calculator, or more information in our Hydro 101 section.


 


Q: When should I add nutrients?
A: You should add nutrients as soon as the first true leaves emerge if growing from seed or when the plant has developed roots if growing from cuttings. You can find detailed information on our website using the nutrient calculator, feed sheets, or on the back of the bottle of our base nutrient formulations.


 


Q: Should I top off with straight water or water with nutrients added? 
A: If you are growing in a system that re-uses nutrient solution, like with the ebb and flow method, you should top off with straight water if the reservoir level is lowered by evaporation or plant uptake. Remember that you will have no way of knowing how much of each nutrient (like nitrogen) has actually been used by the plants (and is therefore depleted in the reservoir water.) We recommend completely changing out and replacing all the nutrient solution every 10-14 days so you know the exact ratios you are feeding the plants.


 


Q: Do I need to use humic or fulvic acid with Liquid Karma or Pure Blend Pro?
A: No, both of these products contain these naturally occurring organic acids.   


 


Q: Can I use hydrogen peroxide with your nutrients and supplements?
A: We do not recommend using hydrogen peroxide in application to plants as this may kill off beneficial microorganisms that live in the substrate surrounding root zone of the plant. Hydrogen peroxide is an environmentally friendly product for cleaning and sterilization, but is not recommended in nutrient solution mixtures.


 


Q: What is the difference between Pure Blend Tea and Pure Blend Pro?
A: Pure Blend Tea is an organically derived compost tea supplement which can be used with many base nutrient systems to increase flavors, aromas and terpene production. Pure Blend Pro is a premium, complete, one-part base nutrient system that contains the same natural and organic compounds which add flavors and aromas found in Pure Blend Tea. It is not necessary to use Pure Blend Tea if using the Pure Blend Pro nutrient line.
