BioBizz Alg-A-Mic is a cold-pressed Seaweed extract. There are many things that make up a good organic seaweed extract to use in a hydroponic environment. Firstly, the type of seaweed is crucially important. Secondly, the way in which it is extracted is critical to the quality of the end product. Thirdly, consistency between batches of extract needs to be entirely on point so you, the grower, get the same high-quality product, every time.
The species of Seaweed used is Asco phylum Nodosum. This is an extremely fast-growing strain of seaweed that contains a much richer range of micronutrients, vitamins, amino acids and hormones than almost any other species. Typically, it is sustainably harvested in the North Atlantic Ocean, just around the emerald isle: Ireland.
Once it is harvested, it then needs to be processed for use. There are a few ways to do this, but the most common is either cold pressing or extraction using chemical solvents. Cold pressing is almost literally what it sounds like. The seaweed is simply pressed until the juices are squeezed out nice and naturally. All you get from the product is the goodness in the seaweed. Chemical solvent extraction may be more efficient for the manufacturer in terms of yield but is not as suitable for growing organically, as it residual waste from the extraction process.
This extraction process, and then how it is then processed for bottling and storage needs to be strictly monitored and batch controlled, to ensure that you get a consistently homogenous product every time you purchase. BioBizz has been developing its manufacturing process for over 20 years, to ensure you receive only the highest quality of the product, every time.
Alg·A·Mic™ is a revitalizing product that contains a low level of NPK (Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium) – making it impossible to overdose. It can be added to every substrate during the flowering and growing period. Our advice is to measure a 1-4ml dose of Alg·A·Mic™ per 1 litre of water.
Conversions: 1 Teaspoon = 5mL | 1 Tablespoon = 15 mL | 1 Ounce = 30mL | 1 Cup = 240 mL
BioBizz Alg-A-Mic helps to boost your plants’ performance in many ways, it helps with nutrient uptake, stress relief and helps to boost overall vitality. One product with many functions! That is the beauty of a seaweed extract!
Principally, it provides the plant with a broad spectrum of micro-nutrients and low levels of macronutrients, to ensure an optimal nutrient uptake and maintain healthy and vigorous plant growth. Making sure your plant has access to all the elements it needs at any one time ensures its growth is not hindered in any way.
Secondly, it contains a range of vitamins that are highly effective at aiding the plant through any stressful times of its life. The effects of transplant shock or drought stress can be significantly mitigated against through the correct application of BioBizz Alg-A-Mic.
It contains a wealth of naturally occurring amino acids. Amino acids play all sorts of complex and vital roles in your plants’ development, opening pathways for growth or focussing energy to key areas, the Amino acids found in Seaweed extracts have proven to be beneficial to farmers over the world for thousands of years.
Lastly, it contains plant recognizable matter that can be quickly transformed into useful hormones by the plant. So rather than having to spend energy on producing the hormone from scratch, it can use then use the energy it has saved in growing larger fruits!
BioBizz Alg-A-Mic FAQ’s
Q. How do I use Alg-A-Mic?
If using as a soil drench we recommend adding 2-5ml per litre of water. If using a foliar spray we recommend using around 1-3ml per litre of water. Alg-A-Mic contains extremely low levels of NPK (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium) so it is virtually impossible to over-feed your plants when using it. However, using too much is just a waste of money.
We would advise applying Alg-A-Mic twice a week as a foliar spray or with every other watering as a soil drench will be plenty. When using as a foliar spray, make sure you keep the spray well away from any grow lamps. Spraying when the lights are off is best.
Q. Why isn’t it suitable for all substrates?
Alg-A-Mic can be used in all growing environments as a foliar spray, no matter what the substrate. However, as it is an organic product, it is most effective in the soil as soil contains the bacteria needed to break down the organic compounds into plant usable nutrition. It can be used with other substrates, but we wouldn’t recommend it as there are other products out there specifically tailored for these other substrates that will perform better.
Q. What’s in it and how is it made?
Alg-A-Mic is made of 100% organic seaweed concentrate, which is concentrated using cold-pressing techniques instead of chemical solvents. It is rich in trace elements, vitamins, amino acids and micro-nutrients – a reason why seaweed has been used for centuries by farmers and gardeners.
Q. Is this a nutrition product?
No, it is an additive and vitality booster that is designed to be used alongside other nutrient products. Alg-A-Mic contains only a tiny amount of NPK so it can be safely used alongside other nutrient products.
Q. If it’s not an essential nutrient product, why use it?
Plants need more than just an essential nutrient mix to thrive. Using an additive such as Alg-A-Mic will help you get the most out of your plants because these products contain a diverse range of beneficial additives, all of which plants can utilise to increase their defence and encourage their growth.
“This is one of those things which I would view as essential for growing. It gives you the opportunity to salvage the day if you over-nute your grow. It acts like a vitamin pill to you plant if it gets stressed in any way. It leaves your leaves looking lush, leathery green.
I’ve particularly enjoyed using this as a foliar spray during the vegging stage and the plants have responded to it beautifully. Biobizz feeds and supplements are fantastic, though some are perhaps not essential. This IS essential, along with Grow, Bloom, Top Max and Root Juice.”
