Green Cleaner

Terminate Pests and Protect your Grow Environment

Green Cleaner protects crops by killing spider mites and their eggs, predatory mites, aphids, whiteflies, broad mites, and russet mites on contact and washes powdery mildew right off the plant. Green Cleaner can be used as a solution to dip tender new cuttings into and can also help prevent garden contamination when outsourcing plant starts. Use it from beginning through harvest as a treatment.

AZOS Red Liquid

New by Xtreme Gardening

A living product with millions of colonies of Azospirillum brasilense. AZOS Red Liquid is used in conjunction with other fertilizers and biostimulants and is compatible with all waterborne applications and fertigation systems. Best for middle to large-scale growers looking to increase the efficiency of their clones and nursery plants as well as boosting vegetative growth.

Nitrogen is a major component of every protein molecule, and yet soils are often deficient in this element. Although the atmosphere is comprised of around 80% nitrogen, it is in a form that is not readily available to plants. AZOS Red Liquid can facilitate this conversion, increase the accessibility of nitrogen in the soil, and catalyze a natural growth hormone within plants that help promote more root and vegetative growth.

Cultured and packaged to order, AZOS Red Liquid is one of the freshest and biologically active microbial products on the market, packaged to maintain the viability of the bacteria. To ensure the best results, purchase enough product for a single crop cycle. Best when stored in a refrigerator.
