Here's Why You Should Try Turbo+

A1M Hydro X VitaLink®

Hi! I’m Emily – I work at VitaLink and A1M Hydro have asked me to tell you guys more about Turbo+… so OK, I’m probably going to be a bit biased about Turbo+… but, hear me out ok? VitaLink Turbo+ is actually really effective and does miracles for your grow/crop – I’m going to give you 5 good reasons to at least try it!

1. Super Powered Carbon!

Carbon atoms are the “backbone” of almost all the important biological molecules that make up life on earth. Including you – and including your plants.  

Plants typically get most of their carbon from the air – from carbon dioxide (CO2) specifically. A plant that can’t get enough carbon will grow slowly, produce minimal buds, and stay small overall. And the opposite is also true.  If a plant has access to a source of carbon in a form that is easy to take up, it’s going to have a powerful boosting effect on its growth. Think heavier, more abundant crops with increased essential oils and richer flavours.

One of the best things about Turbo+ is that it unlocks the power of carbon to send your plants into a frenzy of activity. It’s full of carbon-rich oligosaccharides and carbon derived from naturally occurring lignin, which your plants will absolutely love. In fact, a full 9% of Turbo+ is carbon in forms that your plants will be able to absorb and transform into growing power!

2. It Helps Your Plants De-Stress

Look, there’s no such thing as a perfect growing environment. We do our best, but none of us are growing in multi-million pound laboratory facilities, where every tiny factor is controlled by a supercomputer (we’re not, but if you are…let me know!).

For the rest of us, our best bet is to help our plants grow a bit of resistance against those common stress factors – underwatering, cold, and heat.

Turbo+ contains betaines – powerful molecules that help plants obtain and retain water, protecting them from drought and helping them tolerate temperature changes.  Whether it’s the height of summer or the middle of winter, Turbo+ is going to be doing your plants a favour.

3. It Contains Lots of Lovely Amino (Naturally Extracted from Plants, like Seaweed!)

Plants need amino acids for loads of really important processes – including the creation of chlorophyll (vital for photosynthesis) and nutrient transportation.

Usually it’s up to the plant to synthesise its own amino acids from air, water, and nitrogen. But Turbo+ gives plants a helping hand by providing some of those key amino acids ready formed and primed for use. This is a huge “shortcut” that saves the plant’s energy – which it can then direct into growing even bigger and developing more buds.

4. A Little Goes a Long Way...

Turbo+ is so packed with the good stuff, that you only need to use a little bit of it to start seeing results.  It’s great value which means that whether you’re growing on a budget or growing on a large scale, you’re able to get involved.

5. It Fits Into Almost All Nutrient Feed Plans You Can Think of!

Two weeks prior to flowering, you can start adding Turbo+ into your nutrient regime – and that’s it.  You don’t need to make any other adjustments, to up or lower the dosage of anything else you’re already using.

Turbo+ is an additive full of natural, biological goodies and doesn’t have an NPK value high enough to worry about.  This means that it won’t mess with your EC levels and cause your plants any stress.  It just neatly fits into what you’re already doing, making your plants happier with no fuss.
