I have come across this awesome product that has some great features for beginner growers. It has pH perfect technology, so it always keeps your pH at the perfect level.
This is one less thing you need to worry about when trying to grow cannabis for the first time. In this article, I will go over some of the features and contents of the product while showing the results from 7 days of use – only one week!
I purchased my fertilizer from advanced nutrients, a Canadian owned company who have 100% money buy back guarantee on their products. That’s how much they believe in them! This means you have insurance on your purchase in case you aren’t satisfied with the results.

The picture above was taken at the end of week 3 (day 21) of the grow. The plants have had no nutrients or fertilizer up to this point other then what was in the soil.
How to use the Fertilizer when Growing Cannabis Indoors
This is my first week’s feeding schedule while using this fertilizer. I started slowly and worked my way up. It will show before and after pictures of the plant’s progress.
First Week of Using Fertilizer – My Feeding Schedule
When introducing your plants to any fertilizer or nutrients, it’s always best to start off slow. The “less” the better.
First Time Feeding Nutrients to Your Plants
Go “light” on the nutrients for the first few times of feeding your plants with them.
First Feeding Schedule
I started at half the recommended dose because I didn’t want to shock my plants. This meant I was putting about 1 mL per litre instead of 2 mL per litre. The nutrients come in three different containers and it is a three-part formula. This means I added 1 mL per litre of each of the Micro, Grow, and Bloom Fertilizers.
I mixed the nutrients in a 4 L water container and distributed a litre of the nutrient charged water to each plant.
I then also fed them another litre of regular water as well. This meant I was really diluting the potency of the fertilizer.
Second Feeding Schedule
For the second time feeding them the nutrients, I was putting about 1.5 mL per litre instead of 2 mL per litre. The nutrients come in three different containers and it is a three-part formula. This means I added 1.5 mL per litre of each of the Micro, Grow, and Bloom Fertilizers.
I mixed the nutrients in a 4 L water container and distributed a litre of the nutrient charged water. I then also fed them another litre of regular water as well.
Third Feeding Schedule
I got up to the recommended dose of 2 ml per litre for early stage plants which mine were (only 4 weeks old). This is a three-part fertilizer that has ph perfect technology.
Why it is the Best Fertilizer for Growing Cannabis Indoors
The results. My own experience has allowed me to see the amazing results of this product. In only seven days the plants have become small bushes! Incredibly fast progress and growth experienced because of the fertilizer.
7 Days After Starting the Fertilizer and Nutrients for my Cannabis Plants
After a total of only 7 days using the Advanced Nutrients Fertilizer. The plants look outstanding. The results are why I believe it could be the best fertilizer for growing cannabis indoors. The leaves are exploding with colour and size while the stems are thick and juicy. They are not recognizable after only 7 days. My expectations were blown away.
Getting the Right pH With Fertilizers
Getting the right Ph. This was, in my opinion, the hardest challenge. I bought 3 jugs of 4L natural selection spring water when I couldn’t measure the Ph. Once I used the last bit of that spring water I started using my tap water.
I finally got a Digital pH Tester so I could measure the water I was feeding my plants.
The pH measured 7.60, so I knew I had to do something about that. I filled the jugs up and then put them outside. I let them sit for 48 hours in the sunlight. What this does is it helps evaporate any fluoride and chlorine in the water. I then measured the pH of this water – it was 7.00 on the dot.
That still was too high for the plants so I poured it through a Brita water filter. This actually removes things like hardness, copper, chlorine, lead, and sediment from the water.
I then measured the pH – it was 6.78. So the filter defiantly helped to reduce the pH. This was good enough for the plants. Everybody says the range to grow cannabis is between 6 – 7 pH so I had achieved that.
But something awesome happened. I then added my 3 part ph perfect liquid fertilizer to the water. The fertilizer altered the pH of the plant to the perfect amount, I measured on the pH digital test reader to be at 6.33 and now each time after doing this I am getting a reading of 6.3-6.5 which is the perfect acidity for cannabis plants. They are now flourishing.
Fertilizer with pH Perfect Technology
This is what the product claims to do – have pH perfect technology. So far it has done just that.
Beginner Guide to Feeding Plants with Advanced Nutrients Fertilizer.
Starting with the Micro liquid plant fertilizer. I add 2ml per litre during the early growth stages and further down the road it changes to 4ml per litre. This contains:
Nitrogen (N) (2% Nitrate Nitrogen), Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg), Boron (B), Iron (Fe), Manganese (Mn). It also contains slight amounts of Humic Acid and Surfactant. Stir and mix the solution into the water
Next mix in the Grow liquid fertilizer. Add the same amount of this as Micro. This contains:
Nitrogen (N) – (1% Nitrate Nitrogen), Soluble Potash (K20), Magnesium (Mg), Sulfur (S), also contains slight amounts of surfactant. Now stir and mix your solution into the water.
Finally, add the Bloom liquid fertilizer. Add the same amount of this as Grow. This contains:
Nitrogen (N) 1% (.05% Ammonical Nitrogen, 0.4% Nitrate Nitrogen, 0.55% Urea Nitrogen), available Phosphate P205 , Soluble Potash (K20), Sulfur (S), also contains slight amounts of surfactant.
This article reflects my own experiences and results. In my opinion, it could be the best fertilizer for growing cannabis indoors. It is also great for a beginner because it has pH perfect technology. Lastly, it has 100% money back guarantee if you’re not satisfied, so there isn’t as much of a risk!
