If you’ve ever wondered what are the best grow nutrients for beginners to use, then this article was written specifically for you!
Ok, so where to start?
First, let’s go over the ground that we should have already covered before we get into the Advanced Nutrients starter kit …
Step number one to get you off on the right foot is to read our “How To Start Growing” article. It’s perfect if you’re new to the game. If you’ve already read it, then that’s great, but now would be a good time to review it.
Also, you have a grow room right? We are assuming you do. If you do NOT have a grow room, then you’ll need that to grow of course. But don’t worry we got you covered!
In fact, we’ve created a complete series showing you how to get it done. You can check out our 4-part series on how to build an indoor grow room for hydroponics gardening to get yourself squared away.
Finally, don’t forget about the importance of your water. In fact, you could get wildly different results from your growing schedule — even using the same nutrients we’ll talk about today — if your water is not setup correct. Make sure you’ve read our article about Reverse Osmosis Water Systems to understand why this is so important.
Now, let’s say you already built a grow room and you read our “How To Start Growing” article, you got your RO water setup and now you’re ready to get started, but with so many nutrients on the market — how do you know where to start?
That’s what we’ll cover today …
The fact of the matter is that, no matter what you’re growing, the nutrients from Advanced Nutrients are the best fertilizers and supplements for beginners.
(They’re also the best nutrients for professional growers too, but for different reasons and that’s a whole different article for another time!)
How can we make such a bold statement?
Isn’t that self-serving because we are Advanced Nutrients and of course we’re going to recommend our own products?
You could think so, but it’s really just the reality and here’s why …
Quite simply, it’s because all of Advanced Nutrients products are specifically designed for high-value plant growing. And they are the only nutrients to utilize scientific breakthroughs like pH Perfect Technology.
The fact is that Advanced Nutrients has spent many thousands of man-hours developing various forms of technology that make your job as a grower EASIER.
Like, pH Perfect Technology that automatically balances your pH for you — putting it in the “sweet spot” and holds it there for weeks. You can see more about pH Perfect Technology when you click here but the point is that for a beginner, the less variables the better.
And utilizing the best nutrients in the world will only make your job easier!
Basically, when it comes down to navigating the suite of products and base nutrients at Advanced Nutrients — the primary question you have to ask yourself is what type of environment are you going to be growing in?
Because — and this is another reason why we recommend our own products — Advanced Nutrients base nutrients have been specifically formulated not just for high value plants, but also, to accommodate the chemical and other properties of different mediums.
For example, if you are growing in coco coir, then you need a coco specific nutrient and here’s why …
It’s a known fact coco coir naturally attracts and binds to calcium and magnesium. This means your average nutrients will have a greater percentage of their Ca and Mg bound to the growing medium and not transported to your plants (where you want them)… potentially starving your precious crops!
What’s more: coco coir contains high levels of naturally occurring potassium… and… if you fail to account for this already present amount of potassium your risk poisoning your plants via potassium toxicity!
That’s why resourceful growers have been forced to get around these problems by watching their potassium levels by using so-called “coco” nutes and investing in cal-mag supplements to try and dial things in. However, even when using these methods, growers were still running into weird nutrient deficiencis … and that’s why Advanced Nutrients formulated an entire line of “coco specific nutrients” to fill in the “missing link” to growing with coco coir.
So, as you can see, the medium you’re growing in and the environment is critically important.
Now that you know your medium, let’s talk about the different Advanced Nutrients starter kits you might use …

You might think they can’t possibly be THAT much better than other inferior products, or some concoction that you mix up yourself …
That’s smart. Skepticism is the sign of an intelligent, thinking consumer and that’s what you need to be to be a great grower!
