Can I use Nutri-FX® on anything I grow?

Absolutely, we have two “All Purpose” and several general purpose formulations suitable for most plants and trees. We have bloom formulations for most flowers and flowering trees and we have special “targeted” formulations for those plants and trees having special N-P-K ratio needs or certain soil acidity requirements. Our trained staff and in-store personnel can help with your selection.


You claim “No Fear of Burning”. In my experience any fertilizer can and will “burn” if applied excessively, what makes Nutri-FX® special so that it won’t burn my plants?

Excess Nitrogen (N) compounds are almost always the reason and cause of plant & root system burning. Nutri-FX® will only release Nitrogen when a plant “signals” for nutrition, therefore Nitrogen is only available to the plant when the plant is in need of it and there is no time to burn anything as it is consumed instead.


I like being environmentally friendly, and I think we’re all concerned about this today, please tell me what makes Nutri-FX® products “ECO” or “Environmentally Friendly” as compared to other fertilizer or plant food products?

Plant food or nutrient compounds are beneficial to plants, but quite harmful to our waterways and the aquatic life they contain if they make way to our waterways. “Traditional” plant food or fertilizer products (including “pure organics”) do this in large proportion because of the way they release nutrient compounds. Nutri-FX® products release nutrient compounds on “plant demand”. Proven in Independent Clinical Trials, this exclusive Nutri-FX® nutrient delivery method leaves up to 90% less of these nutrient compounds stranded in the soil to wash through to our underground waters and eventually become problematic to all of our rivers, lakes and oceans. Nutri-FX® products are also manufactured in a “ZERO” emissions facility and we store any remaining effluent as input for reclamation and re-use. Nothing is wasted.


What do you mean when you say Nutri-FX® nutrient products are “Hybrid Organics”, are they “Organic” or not?

Yes and No. In fact Nutri-FX® products are the best of both worlds and here is what we mean: Actual “Organic” and/or “Naturally Occurring” input material in every Nutri-FX® product is somewhere between 70-100%. These are our natural or organically modified nutrient carrier particles and some of nature’s other available and beneficial materials – the only non-natural materials are some of the nutrient “ion” compounds that are extracted from “chemicals” and brought in to our carrier particles. Any Botanist and probably any Horticulturist will tell you that at the time of uptake to any plant or tree, the nutrient compounds that the plants uptake are exactly the same regardless of source – chemical or organic. We simply extract the nutrient ions or “the goodness” from the chemicals (which are exactly the same as from any organic) and encapsulate them in our carrier particles.


What is Nutri-FX® compared too in terms of other products in the market today?

Nutri-FX® products are non-compromise and very effective Plant Foods or Fertilizers (we prefer to call them “nutrients”). That’s really the only fair comparison and we measure up to or exceed the performance of any similar product from any competitor. Other than that Nutri-FX® also offers:

  • Protection for the plant – from short term drought
  • Protection for the environment – no polluting of our waterways
  • Protection for the soil – no build up of toxic salts

No other product to our knowledge offers all of that and many offer none of that!


Can Nutri-FX® products be used with other organic / non-organic nutrients or products?

Sure, they can but we don’t see why anyone would want to. We embrace “pure organics” when speaking of soil amendments, mulch and things of that nature, however as a nutrient source they (Pure Organics) should be used very carefully as they leach nutrient content into our underground waterways profusely – in fact second only to water soluble nutrients types.


Are Nutri-FX® products easy to use, that “Hybrid Organics” you talk about sounds real technical?

Absolutely, Nutri-FX® nutrient products work best when they are “tilled” in to the bulk soil slightly (every label tells of this). The bulk soil is the soil surrounding the target plant(s). Nutri-FX® can also be used as a side dressing or top dressing without tilling in. The “Hybrid Organics” that we mention is really the category or type of product we fall into. What we do to achieve this “Hybrid Organic” platform is really the “magic” or science behind our processes and not something that comes into play in terms of “use” or “application” except that the same amount of Nutri-FX® product will last and be effective longer than most competitive products and less of our product is usually required to achieve the same result.


What is that “Exclusive “3R” Water Saver Technology” all about and How does Nutri-FX® release on “Plant Demand”?

Q8 Answer Part 1 – Nutri-FX’s® Exclusive “3R” Water Saver Technology

Another unique feature of the Nutri-FX® Carrier Particles is they are extremely Hygroscopic – meaning they have an tremendous affinity for water and act like a sponge in that they adsorb water readily and retain it. The water remains plant accessible in times of need. These particles will hold up to 50% of their own weight in water content and this water is released as needed by the plant. Nutri-FX® works with the plant on its terms.

Q8 Answer Part 2 – Plants and Nutri-FX’s® Release-on-Demand

Water Saver Plant Nutrient Diagram

Technology Elemental plant nutrients or nutrient compounds are typically referred to as ions and these ions can either be positively or negatively charged. The nutrient ions are mobile in the soil when they are attracted to particles or zones surrounding the root system that are of the opposite charge. For example when a plant is asking for Nitrogen it will release hydrogen (H+) ions from the root system leaving a predominately negative charge surrounding the root zone and attracting the positively charged Nitrogen ions. Nutri-FX® nutrient products use unique nutrient carrier particles that participate in the soil exchange complex and this process of plant physiology. Again – Nutri-FX® works with the plant on its terms.


Does Nutri-FX® balance or stabilize soil pH, that can be real important with some of the plants that I grow, like Gardenias & Azaleas and even my Blue Berry bushes?

The measure of pH is an indication of the presence of Hydrogen ions in a material, fluid solution or in this case the bulk soil. As Nutri-FX® works very much with and in fact triggers on the release of hydrogen or bicarbonate ions to the soil complex that affect soil pH we do tend to stabilize pH fluctuations, however we are not a replacement for pH management of soils often required to grow certain plants, crops or trees. Nutri-FX® offers special formulations for plants with special needs – examples being our Rhodo-Bloom + and our Date Palm Science nutrient products.
