Aqua Flakes A&B provides the highest quality, fully soluble nutrients designed specifically for recirculating hydroponic systems. Including Wick, Drip, NFT, Aeroponics, DWC, RDWC, and Ebb & Flow Systems.
How House & Garden Aqua
Flakes A&B works:
House & Garden Aqua Flakes A&B is complete plant food supplying all the basic nutrients required by plants for strong, healthy growth in both the vegetative and flowering stages of the plants development.
Using House & Garden
Aqua Flakes A&B:
Fill your recirculating hydroponic system reservoir with water and add equal amounts of House & Garden Aqua Flakes Part A and House & Garden Aqua Flakes Part B to the tank to achieve the required strength and mix well. We recommend using a syringe or beaker for accurate measurement of this product and a CF/EC/PPM meter such as the Bluelab Truncheon to check the TDS (nutrient strength). Adjust as necessary. Next, add any additives and boosters you wish to use and again mix well. Adjust the pH of the solution to the required level using pH up or down as necessary. We recommend the use of a pH meter such as the HM Digital or Bluelab pH meter to help accurately set the pH to the required level. As with all nutrients, additives and pH adjustment products, avoid contact with skin and eyes and wear suitable protective clothing. Store at a temperature between 7C and 30C.
Both parts of a 2-part nutrient are designed to be used together in equal amounts. Using only part A or part B, or using them in unequal amounts will result in a nutrient solution which is not properly balanced. This will almost certainly lead to your plants suffering from deficiencies.
As with all nutrients, boosters and additives, never mix them together in their concentrated form (i.e. straight out of the bottle). Always add each nutrient, booster or additive to your reservoir or feed water in turn, giving the solution a good stir to mix it in before adding the next one.
Manufacturer’s recommended dosage rates are only for vigorously growing plants that are in the peak of health. Slower growing plants and those that are not 100% healthy will require a lower dosage rate. House & Garden Aqua Flakes is a premium quality product for growers that demand the best. You can be assured of excellent results when used in combination with the House & Garden range of additives and boosters.
AQUA FLAKES A&B

This liquid concentrate has a unique composition that encourages rapid transfer of nutrients from fertigation into the plant foliage. The secret H&G formulation and blending methodology allows for a perfectly balanced combination of nutrients for optimum, medical-grade cultivation. The result for you? Better pH balance, improved nutrient uptake, faster plant growth and stability in EC levels.
