The Destiny Grow System™

With its roots in the Kootenays of the Southern Interior of British Columbia, Destiny Grow System’s philosophy has been to assist nature by providing a complete range of nutrients in the soil ecosystem to deliver a perfectly balanced diet to the plants.

Beneficial microbes and fungi in the soils orchestrate improved nutrient flow through complex symbiotic processes to maximize the supply of essential nutrients to the plants. This increases plant vitality to an optimum level, allowing nature to manifest any plant’s full potential.

The product has been developed and perfected for over 25 years with feedback from hundreds of growers, and the team behind Destiny Grow System is committed to leading the way with today’s most advanced organic cultivation technologies.
