Product special


Foreword Dear friends, This year’s Product Special features the most interesting items the cannabis market can offer for the wellbeing of your plants to help you turn your passion for growing into a fully-fledged professional activity. Needless to say, 2020 will be remembered as a watershed year, with ‘before’ and ‘after’ scenarios that have now become engraved in our memories as citizens and growers. This damn virus has forced the majority of us to change our habits and reorganise our lives. We have woken up to a sad situation where human beings are immensely more fragile than we thought and modern healthcare systems – except in very rare cases – are unable to respond to this huge challenge. The virus has hit hard, and continues to hit in some areas of Europe, but has not won. Last spring’s lockdown has been an unprecedented experience for most of us. Locked indoors at the most important time of the year for outdoor sowing, many growers opted for a ‘virus-free’ indoor growing cycle. I say ‘virus-free’ because like a fullbloom spring, the green passion that we all share was unstoppable. Quite the reverse, there was an upswing in the number of growers as a result of the terrible economic crisis that afflicts the entire continent. The cannabis supply chain has been restructured. With the mandatory closure of our beloved grow shops, wholesalers and shopkeepers have promptly responded by tapping the potential of ecommerce and supplied growers all over Europe with valuable products. As in any age of great transformation, today’s challenges often present us with a very expensive bill, but also a number of opportunities, if we are able to grasp them. We are living through a period comparable to that when primary living beings switched from aquatic life to land life. During this switch, amphibians evolved and found new oxygen in different forms as a key step for the continuation of the species. I deliberately use this evolution metaphor to suggest that the difficult time we are living through should encourage us to fight for survival. Home growing and growing for selfconsumption are benchmarks for our industry. This is why offering you highly professional products and equipment to grow increasingly specialised crops is the best way to fulfil our mission of helping you find

your own way to rich, delicious and fragrant harvests. We realised that, in cannabis growing, people’s passion and desire for economic recovery and rebirth have, in fact, defeated the virus. In anticipation of an uncertain future with few points of reference, this certainty gives us hope. With determination and the will to succeed, even the most difficult obstacles can be overcome. Believe in yourself as we do. Study, read, try it out and, if you are wrong, try again. You can steer your plants towards the perfect harvest if you always keep an empathetic look on them. This year’s Product Special features state-ofthe-art products and equipment for cannabis growing and testing. Enjoy your reading and sowing! Fabrizio Dentini Soft Secrets Italia

BAC Frooting Power

BAC has developed a new exciting product named ‘Frooting Power’. BAC’s Frooting Power is a unique, high quality growth enhancer containing phosphate as cell-division stimulator, which increases the number of flowers during the blooming phase and improves their strength.

Make sure you use Frooting Power in the last 3-4 weeks of the blooming phase and only on healthy plants because it is a very powerful fertilizer and… requires a lot from your plants. When used in combination with your basic fertiliser, the result is stunning. Never use Frooting Power in conjunction with another growth enhancer. Available in packs of 325 grams, 1 kg and 5 kg.

Hesi GrowMix cu

To match the range of fertilisers for soil and the specialised boosters, Hesi has also added a soil substrate to its product-range in 2020. We are super excited to tell you about the journey to find the perfect partner, and all the ins-and outs about the advantages of the Hesi GrowMix. The qualitative characteristics of a soil were particularly important during production: stable, airy structure, water storage capacity and pH buffering. But maybe one of the most important requirements: sustainability. As with the fertilizers and boosters, Hesi follows its own unique path. Instead of the often used white perlite, Hesi GrowMix contains natural clay minerals which, in addition to their water retention function, also have ion exchange properties, i.e. they bind minerals and nutrients - and only release them when the roots need them. However, clay is not only a water and nutrient buffer, but with its buffering capacity against pH fluctuations, it also tolerates minor slips. In addition, the clay remains mixed in the substrate and does not float to the surface, as Perlite often does.

lture substrate

GrowMix’s consistency – what’s in it? GrowMix consists of a 80% sustainable produced 50/50 mixture of white and black peat, which naturally has a high water and air capacity and is free of contaminants and germs. The other 20% is made up of regional, highly organic bark humus which, thanks to its medium sized and large pores, can easily absorb oxygen and water. This makes the GrowMix particularly breathable. The composting of the bark of coniferous wood releases numerous nutrients during decomposition and undesirable tannins are fermented. This makes the soil more fertile and revives the microflora - and as a nice side effect, brings a fresh, pleasant forest smell. As the icing on the cake, carbonated lime provides a stable pH value and improves the crumb structure. GrowMix contains the basic nutrients nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium as well as all trace elements for the first two weeks and ensures good growth of your plants. Depending on the plant type and size, fertilization should be started from the third week onwards.

Green House Feeding BioEnhancer

Green House Feeding has developed a very unique product, which is internally referred to as the swiss army knife in the grow room because it can be used in every stage of the plants life cycle and has many different uses, ranging from rooting of clones or germination of seeds, over foliar application to media drenches. Being part of the Green House Feeding Bio Line, this bio stimulant contains Humic & Fulvic Acids, Seaweed extract, Trichoderma Harzianum and Bacillus Amyloliquefaciens. The unique combination of ingredients helps plants with the uptake of locked up nutrients by boosting the cation exchange capacity and stimulating the plants metabolism.

It also provides a high number of trace elements and natural phytohormones, which helps to enhance root growth naturally. Plants treated with BioEnhancer tend to have a higher resistance to stress and pests and the soil is very resistant to pathogens due to the rootcolonizing Trichoderma Harzianum and Bacillus Amyloliquefaciens. Organic EU


Green House Feeding BioEnhancer may be used in organic farming and is Control Union and OMRI certified.

Registration No: CU 855395 The product may be used in Organic Farming under the EU Regulation 834/2007 + 889/2008.

ercole pot

Take advantage of growing plants in the innovative Ercole pot Once planted out, plants grown in these pots not only have a considerable reduction in growing time, but are also guaranteed quick rooting in the surrounding soil and immediate growth. Thanks to its specially developed airsystem (due to the side holes), once the roots get in touch with the air and light, they stop their circular pattern. In this way, the side root system does not go into stress and the growth of the stem is faster and more vigorous than in a standard pot. • Develops the root system more quickly • Improves drainage • Keeps the root system healthy

• Anti-spiral action • Improves the growth of the plants • Reduces the stress caused by transplantation Use the right substrate to get the best result It is possible to improve this result, by carefully choosing the kind of substrate to be used with the Ercole pot. A compact and well-draining substrate improves the development and root system of the plants grown in Ercole, because this pot creates an environment similar to that of an open field. The best substrate to be used is a particular mix of peat, coco fiber, coco pith and a controlled release fertilizer. The coco fiber allows for major water retention and gives the substrate a structural stability, increasing the capacity of the mutual exchange between water and air. All of these factors demonstrate how a wise choice of substrate affects the results in a remarkable way, both technical and commercial, when growing in the Ercole pot. Visit our website to discover our complete range of plastic pots and all of our new items.

TECO S.r.l, an Italian company specialised in the design and construction of highperformance cooler units for different applications, has recently created the TECOponic brand and developed the HY product range of chillers for hydroponics. Hydroponics allows more abundant, faster and healthier harvests than any other method of cultivation, while offering considerable benefits to the environment. In HYDROPONICS, the control of water temperature is extremely important. The ideal water temperature is between 18°C and 22°C, which ensures maximum efficiency and lush, healthy harvests. To this end, the chiller models HY150, HY500, HY1000 and HY2000 were designed and manufactured in Italy with top quality materials and components.


A rotating outlet makes it possible to install the chiller unit inside the grow box to enable the outflow of heat.

Restrictions on the use of certain gases in cooler systems have encouraged the company to develop a product using the ecological gas R290, one of the best eco-friendly alternatives without direct effects on global warming. The use of R290 resulted in considerably lower energy consumption compared to coolers using R134a. Low consumption also means saving money.
