Snoops Premium Nutrients Start A+B
- Specially formulated for the ideal amount of nutrients
- Achieve full potential from your plants
- Increases the crop’s ability during the start phase
- Snoop Dogg Premium Nutrients!
- Available in 1 litre & 5 litres
Research has shown that it’s bad practice to use grow nutrients at a reduced dilution rate when fertilizing clones and young plants. While the ppm will be in the desired range, grow nutrients will not meet the plants’ need for more anions than cations. Snoop’s Premium Start A&B has been specifically formulated to provide your plants with the ideal proportion of nutrients for the start phase increasing your young plants and clones ability to develop rapid shoot development. Providing your plants with proper nutrition assists them in reaching their full potential. Now you can give your crops a PREMIUM Start.
Fill the feed tank with water. Shake bottle well before use. Add 10ml of Start A per gallon of water (2.5ml per litre) and mix well. Then add 10ml of Start B per gallon of water (2.5ml per litre) and mix well. This will give an approximate EC of 1.4 (980ppm). Adjust pH as required.
– Always use an equal amount of Start A and Start B.
– Water temperature affects EC/ppm.
– To avoid false readings set the water temperature to 68°F.
– Store out of direct light.
For guidance only. Precise EC/ppm levels are plant/environment specific.

At the start of the plants’ life, it needs and will up-take more Nitrogen (NO−
3 is a negative ion (anion).
To take in an anion a plant has to release an electron (−). This electron, when released into water, is adding a negative load creating a hydroxide (OH−) particle. This OH− particle will bring the pH up in the root zone/substrate.
To keep the pH in the substrate at an optimum level for the start phase another type of nitrogen is used, which is referred to as ammonium (NH+
4). This is a positive ion and the first of all ions to be taken by the plant. For further information, please read growing science. If a plant takes in NH+
4 a plant has to release a proton (+). This proton, when released into water, will add a positive load creating a hydrogen (H+) particle. This H+ particle will bring the pH down in the root zone/substrate.
A plant needs more NO−
3 in its early stages and therefore releases more
OH− particles than at later stages, so it needs the correct level of NH+
4 to release the correct level of H+ particles to control the internal pH regulation of the substrate as well as the pH you choose to feed with from your feed tank. This ensures the pH is kept in a range that allows the elements to be taken in by the plant.
“Just want to say a big THANK YOU for the fantastic speedy delivery of my newly aquired Snoop Nutrients. They were well packaged and had really good instructions what to do with them. On opening the parcel I noticed it was well packaged. Excellent service! I will definitely be ordering again from you soon.”
“I just wanted to say I received my order as advised and was most impressed with the way everything had been so securely packed. I have been waiting a while to get my hands on some of Snoops Premium Nutrients and was worried about leakages etc. It was so obvious you took great care and also take pride in your work when packaging. As & when I need further stock for my hydro garden, I will certainly come back to you and would definitely recommend you to friends.”
“Thanks so much – my nutrients arrived today. Really fast delivery. Can’t wait to get to work with them. It was so well packaged and they look so simple to use.“
About Snoop’s Nutrients
Snoop’s Premium Nutrients are available in three different variants to suit every type of grower both big and small.
Our non-circulating nutrients have been formulated so that you achieve premium results from your run to waste system. The recipe is tailor-made taking into consideration the fact that the nutrients pass through the root zone only once. When this happens the exact ratio of each element they require is delivered.
Our circulating nutrients have been formulated so that you achieve premium results from your recirculating system. When using our circulating nutrients your water usage is significantly reduced allowing for a more eco-friendly, economical method of growing. The recipe is tailor-made taking into consideration the fact the nutrients pass through the root zone multiple times.
When nutrients pass through the root zone the cation NH+
4 is always taken first. This results in depleted levels of NH+
4 every time the feed water recirculates. Our circulating recipe has elevated levels of NH+
4 to solve this problem. It is advised you change your tank every 2-3 days or your NH+
4 levels will be too low.
Elevating the levels of the cation NH+
4 means we have to reduce the amount of the other cations. It is essential to keep the cations and anions in a recipe at equal levels, so when elevating the levels of the cation NH+
4 it is essential to reduce the amount of the other cations. This is important for ph regulation in the root zone.
Our coco nutrients have been formulated so that you achieve premium results from your coco substrate. The recipe is tailor-made taking into consideration the elements already present in the background EC of the coco due to the buffering process coco goes through.
The most common process for buffering coco is using potassium nitrate. To correct this potassium is reduced and calcium increased in the recipe. This is because of the cation exchange capacity (CEC ). Cation exchange sites are negatively charged sites on the growing media that attract positively charged cations. Certain cations attach easier to these sites. This is where elements from nutrients exchange with elements present on coco.
The cation exchange sites want to get rid of as much K as they can because they prefer Ca. A coco recipe gives the exchange sites the opportunity to take on Ca. As the exchange sites take on Ca, the K is released to the root zone. The plant still gets the same level of K as a result of this despite a reduced amount in a coco recipe. Elevated levels of Ca are required in a coco recipe because some of the Ca used to knock the K off the sites remains on the exchange sites.
