nano.10⁻⁹ logo


A nanometre (nm) is a billionth of a metre or a millionth of a millimetre

The word ‘nano’ comes from the Greek word ‘nanos’, meaning dwarf

Nanotechnology was first introduced in 1959 by Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman.

coco base⁺

coco base⁺ is the foundation needed for any plants grown in a coco substrate. We combined pH stability with the superior absorption of nutrients to produce a coco base nutrient that ensures optimal uptake.

1L, 5L, 10L

coco base⁺ contains

    suspended nano calcium particles
    nano calcium

    Nano calcium increases cell wall strength, providing protection from pests like spider mites and allowing your plant to support heavy fruits.

    suspended nano iron particles
    nano iron

    Nano iron can be uptaken by the plant without expending energy. Nano iron also increases the levels of photosynthesis in your plant, giving the plant more energy for growth and flowering.

    suspended nano magnesium particles
    nano magnesium

    Magnesium is the central molecule in chlorophyll. The more magnesium you can provide your plants, the more chlorophyll can be created, increasing plant energy.

    suspended nano silica particles
    nano silica

    Nano silica reinforces your plant's roots and stems, allowing the plant to support heavier yields while providing extra protection against pest and disease.

Base nutrients provide everything your plants need to grow and flower successfully. They provide 14 of the 17 essential macro, micro and trace elements that research has shown is required for a plant to complete its life cycle. Carbon (C), Hydrogen (H) and Oxygen (O) are provided from air and water.

The elements provided by the base nutrients are nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), potassium (K) which make up the macronutrients.

The microelements are calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg) and sulphur (S), with the remaining trace elements package of boron (B), chlorine (Cl), copper (Cu), iron (Fe), manganese (Mn, molybdenum (Mo), nickel (Ni) and zinc (Zn) available in minor quantities.

In nano.10⁻⁹ coco base A + B⁺, we reduced the amount of calcium salts and replaced them with a nano version of calcium. In the nano form, calcium is suspended rather than dissolved in your solution (water). Calcium is a very antagonistic element and can reduce the uptake of other nutrients such as potassium, iron, magnesium, boron, zinc and phosphorous. Nano calcium will behave differently from traditional calcium, so the chances of nutrient interactions are dramatically reduced.

Another nano element included in our base nutrient is magnesium. Magnesium is a crucial component of chlorophyll production, making your leaves green and allowing the conversion of sunlight and water into sugars (Photosynthesis). Suppose you combine our base nutrients with nano.10⁻⁹ root⁺? In that case, you have access to magnesium and iron in the nano form, which supercharges chlorophyll production, allowing your plants to grow faster, increasing leaf size and providing a more efficient photosynthesis system.
