Essentially, they are the same, however Hydroplex surpasses the standard of the traditional 0-50-30 and contains inputs not found in powdered flower boosters. Hydroplex contains the same ratio of P to K as a 0-50-30 (1.6 to 1). The main difference, and why the NPK’s seem so different is because of concentration. In a highly concentrated liquid form, a dry 0-50-30 becomes a 0-10-6 like Hydroplex. Although the concentration of PK is slightly lower, this enables us to fortify Hydroplex with organic plant extracts, amino acids, and other compounds that enhance both size and quality. It’s not only what’s applied, it’s what’s absorbed!
