Superthrive plant food is awesome—because it works. I’ve been using it professionally in greenhouses and nurseries for over a decade, as well as on my own cannabis plants for just as long. Plants benefit from vitamins much like humans do. A pro athlete or bodybuilder will consume a staggering amount of vitamins in a given week from their diet and supplements. Just like in plants, this abundance of vitamins, minerals, hormones, acids and esters provides the athlete with an edge to recover faster, build mass and even digest better! The difference between humans and plants is that with exception of a very select vitamin in small amounts humans don’t produce their own. With proper fertilizing, light and a stress free run, a healthy weed plant produces enough to reach an acceptable yield. Superthrive comes in when you need to resist stress in production stages like transplanting and light cycle shift or if your like me and want the biggest, most potent buds for your money.
SPECIAL: Heard about SuperGain? It’s like Superthrive but with 21st Century technology.
Secret Superthrive ingredients
How does Superthrive work? Why are some of the Superthrive ingredients secret or proprietary? And why should you avoid products with only one, two or a few of its ingredients? Because of Superthrive’s synergistic effect of hormones, vitamins and minerals. When the three main ingredients in Superthrive are combined with its other normalizing vitamins and hormones they are proven to aid plants in resisting stress, disease and fungus.
The company keeps them secret to avoid competition not because these ingredients are dangerous. In fact if you ran a super complete fertilizing regimen, like with everything in the Advanced Nutrients line along with a tea of compost, two kelps, alfalfa, blood and bone meal, and yucca, you would be close. But a few of the synthetic ingredients like NAA (Naphthalene Acetic Acid) have been proven over and over to have the most power synergistic effect in terms of transplant success. Superthrive was used to transplant the largest AND oldest tree ever documented and if you look on their website there are pictures, its not a joke. Is it organic? No….but its one of those magical moments when a bump from chemistry can get you faster recovery from stress, resistance to disease and fungus and a more desirable healthier plant. There have been times when this product was the only synthetic supplement I used.

Superthrive for cannabis
When it comes to Superthrive for cannabis the beauty of this stuff is that its 53 ingredients are highly soluble, highly concentrated and capable of long term storage. A small bottle keeps for a long time and you can get a ton of use out of. Using a 4 oz. bottle of Superthrive at a drop a gallon in a hydroponic garden will last you a long time.
How to use Superthrive? It’s simple. You can dose as high as 2 tsp per 10 gal according to the manufacturer. If you are using soil, mix it right in with your transplant water at 1 tsp per gallon.
