New Product: BioBizz BioHeaven

BioHeaven is a specially formulated Plant Energy booster which contains carefully selected biological stimulants, such as amino-acids. Amino-acids are the basic building blocks for the proteins and enzymes, which are essential to the structure and the metabolism of plants.

As a result, BioHeaven enhances utilization and translocation of nutrients in fertilizer blends & foliars and boosts up the anti-oxidant system of the plant, rids the plant of toxins built up during periods of stress, repairs chlorophyll and re-stimulates the plant.

The L-amino acids used by BioBizz for BioHeaven are extracted from soybean cake and other organic protein sources via enzymatic hydrolysis and fermentation. This process ensures the amino acids to be extracted in L-form, the only absorbed and used by plants. Besides the L-amino acids, BioHeaven contains natural aged humus, one of the most versatile components in soil environments. This component, in combination with other operative substances in BioHeaven, increases extremely the quantity of minerals in the soil. Normally, the percentage of minerals uptake lies around the 5-10%, the substances within BioHeaven can raise it up to 95%.

These processes stimulated by BioHeaven enhance the availability of nutritionally important trace elements, which are capable of entering plant cells.

David Lloyd’s Simplicity Method for Successful Hydroponic Cultivation

With over 80 years of combined knowledge and experience with indoor gardening, the BGH staff has the best knowledge available to help you find solutions to fit any and all of your gardening needs.  Featuring an article by David Lloyd, BGH store manager. Beginning his hydroponic career in 2002, Lloyd will be sharing with you his “simplicity method” for successful hydroponic cultivation, which he has proven and refined over years of hydroponic expertise.

David Lloyd’s Simplicity Method

“I’ve been growing for a long time. I’ve been fortunate enough to have dealt with a lot of different nutrient regimens, hydro systems, lighting systems, techniques and just about every indoor gardening tool to come out in the last 8 years. The one thing that I’ve been lead back to during all of that time is this: “Simplicity is the Key”. If you are anything like me, you don’t want to buy any more than what you need. One thing I can’t stand in my garden is 10-15 different bottles of nutrients that I rarely use and have essentially wasted my money on.”


New Arrival – Hydroplex Bloom Maximizer by Botanicare

New Arrival!

Hydroplex BLOOM Maximizer

Hydroplex BLOOM Maximizer

Hydroplex Bloom Maximizer
is a premium plant nutrient supplement formulated to push your crops to their limits. Hydroplex contains optimum levels of potassium and phosphorus to encourage rapid bud formation and amplified flower size. In addition, Hydroplex contains a vast array of the essential amino acids involved in the transfer of ribonucleic acids (t-RNAs) and DNA synthesis; high potency vitamins; and a broad range of trace minerals.

Hydroplex 0-10-6 Bloom Maximizer, now includes a broader range of amino acids, more trace minerals, and more select, beneficial vitamins. Use Hydroplex in conjunction with any base bloom nutrient to maximize the yield potential of fruiting and flowering plants. Though most standard PK boosters are structured to create larger fruits and flowers, Hydroplex Bloom Maximizer surpasses that standard by both increasing plants resistance to external stresses and amplifying natural enzyme, chlorophyll, and essential oil production.

During the fruiting/flowering phase, use 1/2 teaspoon - 1 teaspoon (2-5 ml) per gallon (4 liter) of water depending on overall health of plants.
