Frequently Asked Questions Answered:
Q: How is Blue Gold™ Hydro made?
A: Blue Gold™ Hydro Blend is a blend of non-GMO herbs, mineral sources, oceanic plants and clays, plant oils, and other natural plant extracts. Blue Gold™ Hydro is saponin enhanced with our Blue Gold™ Base and is extremely micronized using complexed Bio-Genesis SM processes. Blue Gold™ Hydro is safe for all plants and crops and will not harm people, animals, beneficials including bees, birds, butterflies, earthworms. Blue Gold™ Hydro is free of harsh and caustic chemicals, GMOs, PGRs, toxins, and hormones. Information regarding the contents and levels of metals in this product is available here.
Q: Will Blue Gold™ Hydro burn up my plants?
A: By itself, Blue Gold™ Hydro will not burn leaf tip, bud, or blooms. Blue Gold™ Hydro has been tested from 15F to 125F with no detriment to plants, soil, or blooms. Blue Gold™ Hydro amplifies and enhances other inputs, fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, biocides, etc. so err with caution when combining Blue Gold™ Hydro with anything. We highly recommend you do a test path with Blue Gold™ Hydro and your other inputs. Start with 10% of your current inputs when using Blue Gold™ Hydro. Please, call James (877-732-5360 Ext 103) anytime with any questions you have regarding growing with Blue Gold™. If you have a big problem with Nutrient Lock Out due to pH or imbalanced Phosphate/Calcium ratios or if you have just recently applied fertilizer or have been abundantly applying fertilizers with little to no results, consider using Blue Gold™ Hydro at its regular rate and work up to the recommended rate.
Q: How do I spray Blue Gold™ Hydro?
A: Blue Gold™ Hydro can be used with any pump up sprayers, hose end sprayers, and water pails. As well as commercial spray tanks. If you’re using Hydro in soil, always test soil moisture with your finger before watering. Blue Gold™ Hydro is a wetting agent. It will make your water wetter, allowing it (and anything mixed with them) to penetrate your soil deeper and broader and than ever before. It will overall reduce your watering and fertilizer input requirements.
Q: My Blue Gold™ Hydro has a strong smell. Is this normal?
A: Blue Gold™ Solutions (Hydro, Garden, Rose, Vibrant Floral) are made from plants and minerals. They are biologically alive solutions that contain naturally occurring bacteria and enzymes. A biologically alive solution will have a mild odor, but most of our customers tell it to us that it smells earthy and very plant-like. It should have a potent/strong earthy plant-like smell.
Q: Can I purchase larger quantities than 8oz bottles of Blue Gold™ Hydro?
A: Yes, any of our 8oz solutions can be sold in gallon form. Please contact us with a request. Gallon prices are usually 20-40% less cost!
Q: What are the guaranteed results, when the disclaimer says there is no guarantee?
A: Concerning all of our sales, we guarantee results! Then there is are conditions that supersedes what is in the legal disclaimer on the label. So, if you didn’t see a result of any kind, we will be more than happy to reimburse the sale! The label disclaimer is a blanket statement to protect us from customers who misuse the product. Please give us a call anytime (877-732-5360 Ext 103) and we will be more than happy to discuss any question or concern you may have at length. Our time is yours.
Q: I had some Amazon shipping issues.
A: First, we are sorry about your experience with the packaging mishap. Amazon Fulfills our orders, and sometimes the bottle is not kept from rolling around the box like a bowling ball due to lack of packing material in the box that is supposed to be there. We strive to make sure every package that leaves here is properly packaged. Please contact Amazon for a replacement due to shipping damage.
Q: Why is my bottle only 8oz?
A: The little 8oz bottle of Blue Gold™ Hydro will make up to 237 gallons of root drench and up to 47 gallons of foliar applications. Please judge the Blue Gold™ Hydro on its performance after you have used the product and not before just on the size of the bottle. Big things can come in small packages. We promise you will not be disappointed after the use of the entire bottle. If you are still not happy, please contact us for your full refund.
Q: Is Blue Gold™ Hydro plant food?
A: The Blue Gold™ Hydro is a surfactant, or as the Department of Agriculture calls it, “a wetting agent” in various States. But it is also so much more than that! It is designed using over herbs, minerals, sea extracts, clays and rare plant oils and extracts. By this method, this product is superior to any other “normal soap.” Surfactants, by their nature, make water wetter, thereby allowing water to penetrate deeper and wider into the soil. There is a severe prolonged dehydration issue plaguing our soils and plants today. The cause and reason is a debatable subject, but when Blue Gold™ Hydro is used, the treated water can penetrate deeper and wider, enhance water hydration of the soil and plants! Due to the special way Blue Gold™ Hydro is formulated, it has properties that specifically help nutrients penetrate membrane walls more efficiently, while also helping to reduce nutrient lockup in the soil induced by chlorides, petrochemicals, and generic carbon lockup. Blue Gold™ Hydro plants see a significant increase in BRIXX as a direct result of increased water availability and nutrient uptake. The BRIXX is the plant’s natural pest and disease defense and is also directly related to the quality of the harvest. The Blue Gold™ Hydro starts a chain reaction in the soil and the plants which yields Amazing Results! Please do not hesitate to call (877-732-5360 Ext 103) anytime so that we can go over your application methods with you and help you achieve the best Blue Gold™ results! Please view our Blue Gold™ Garden Blend Product Magazine to see results achieved by our growers including Azure Standard, the country’s largest organic to home market, which has doubled and even tripled crop production (in soil, hydro, and greenhouse) with the Blue Gold™ Solutions. Have you ever seen a 6″ salad radish or cherry tomatoes the size of clementines? Our Blue Gold™ technology is on its face a “wetting agent,” but it works entirely different than any a-typical in-organic NPK chemical product. We assure you that the Blue Gold™ Hydro is not just soap and water. Surfactants comprise our lungs and are responsible for oxygen exchange. Plant-based surfactants are responsible for cell repair in nature. It took us a long time to understand how they work with the plant DNA, and just how vital the source is. Please give us a call with any questions or concerns! Our time is yours! We are here to help all our users understand the technology to help better serve our loyal customer base.
Q: What is the fizz when I open the bottle?
A: The Blue Gold™ Hydro is a biologically alive saponin solutions, for use as a wetting agent. Because we preserve the inherent plant microbiology, pressure can slightly build in the Blue Gold™ Hydro bottles, which then vent through a special vented cap seal we use. But, if the carrier is extremely rough with your Blue Gold™ Hydro bottle, sometimes there can be a slight leakage, or it will want to burp and/or fizz out the top when you first open it. To avoid leaks, never shake your Blue Gold™ Hydro bottle; only roll side to side to mix, if needed. Most people pour it in an empty bucket first and then add the water, which will cause it to foam up if you do not keep the hose under the water surface. Make sure the hose is under the water surface, and you will be fine. Always add the Blue Gold™ Hydro to water, never water to the Blue Gold™ Solution to avoid foaming.
Q: The Blue Gold™ Hydro bottle I received appeared to have fermentation and had started leaking from the excess pressure and the bottle itself was bulging. I am guessing this isn’t what is typical?
A: We are sorry for your burping bottle. The Blue Gold™ Hydro is a living biological product that at times can burp. We install custom vented cap lids but sounds like it was too much for the vented cap? However, we have had problems with Amazon’s fulfillment shipping where the Blue Gold™ bottle arrives in a box with no packing material (but it should have it) so it is rolling around like a loose bowling ball, and this is like shaking a coke up. We have accounted for this information in the insert with the bottle, and it explains on what for you to do if this occurs. So rough handling and shipping can sure upset the Blue Gold, and unfortunately, we still have to work on this with Amazon. BUT, nothing is wrong with the product. Please judge the product on its performance and not on its shipping faults we have at times with Amazon. They fulfill all our products. Please contact us, and we can take care of this hiccup for you, but the product is safe and effective to use.
Q: Are Blue Gold™ Solutions safe for bees?
A: Yes! All, Blue Gold™ Solutions are safe for bees, butterflies, beneficials, earthworms, birds, etc. They attract them! They will not harm animals, plants, children, etc. In all our years of study and research with the Blue Gold™ Solutions we have yet to see any beneficial insect that does not just love the Blue Gold™. Most people will comment that the increased amount of bees, butterflies, ladybugs, praying mantis, etc. start showing up after they start applying the Blue Gold™ Solutions! Citrus Grove customers have sent us videos of this is with mega butterflies and bees that invaded after applications were made. This videoshows how the birds flocked and flew right into the Blue Gold™ foliar sprays as they are applying them. Most all growers/farmers also comment how all wildlife seem to come like a magnet to the Blue Gold™. We have seen deer cross a 400-acre field in broad daylight to get to the barn that held the alfalfa hay grown on the Blue Gold™ Alfalfa Blend which the farmer testified that has never happened before in his 30+ years on that farm. We also have had people tell us that they fed the Blue Gold™ to bees by their own decision (not advised by us) and the honey production increased by 90% or better! So according to all our data and customer testimonials, we say it is safe. See more of animals loving Blue Gold™ Solutions in our Product Magazine.
Q: I feel Blue Gold™ Solutions are expensive: $17.99 ÷ 48 (gallons) = 37.479 cents, per tsp.
A: Our 8oz bottles of Blue Gold™ (Garden, Rose, Hydro, Vibrant Floral) will make up to 237 gallons of root drench and up to 47 gallons of foliar applications. Each Blue Gold™ 8oz solution has over 200 ingredients, and it is 100% American made product that still has to compete with pennies on the dollar chemicals from Asia. Our product is all natural and organic and safe for people, pets, bees, birds, butterflies, earthworms, beneficials, and nature. We are all about one thing: Amazing RESULTS. If you are not 100% happy, you can contact us for your full refund. Also, please call us (877-732-5360 Ext 103) anytime with any questions.
Q: How do I store Blue Gold™ Solutions after I open them?
A: For storing after use, it is good to leave the cap slightly loose to allow venting and additional fermenting to make the Blue Gold™ Solutions more powerful. Always store them in a cool dark place.
Q: What is the shelf life of Blue Gold™ Hydro once it is opened?
A: The government and labeling laws limit how long body/animal/plant beneficials are allowed to have a “shelf life” of, and we are required to put a 1-year shelf life on the label. Unofficially, we have the product used on company soil and systems that have been sitting for many more years. We have found that Blue Gold™ Solutions are like wine, the longer they age, the better they perform.
Q: Where are Blue Gold™ Solutions made?
A: 100% American Made
Q: How often can I foliar spray Blue Gold™ Hydro on my plants?
A: Blue Gold™ Hydro is safe to use every day on any plant when using foliar applications. It is safe to foliar feed with Blue Gold™ Hydro multiple times per day if you are trying to maximize plant health and production. Merely proportion your daily rate as necessary with your number of preferred applications. It is safe to foliar feed newly germinated seeds and sprouts every day at a rate of 1-2 tsp per 1 gallon of water.
Q: Does it matter what the pH of the water for the foliar spray?
A: Successful growing is always led first and foremost by using the correct pH on the roots and foliar’s, as you well know. We have learned that pH is merely the measurement of resistance. The higher the pH, the greater the resistance and the lower the pH, less resistance. We have found that a 6.4 pH will allow more nutrients to pass to the plant because of the lower resistance at 6.4. We have seen time and again that operations which only change to a constant 6.4 pH, see incredible changes. We have non-caustic pH Upand a pH Down Solutions as well.
Q: What are the proportions of Blue Gold™ Hydro per gallon?
A: As directed on the label: Foliar every day at 15 m/L per gallon of water. Treat reservoir every 5 to 10 days with 1 to 2 m/L per gallon. When used in conjunction with Blue Gold™ Super Carb (our carbohydrate formula) use only 1 m/L of Blue Gold™ Hydro per gallon of reservoir water with 2 m/L of Blue Gold™ Super Carb per gallon. For best results adjust the pH of your water using Blue Gold™ pH Down and/or Blue Gold™ pH UP.
Q: If mixing Blue Gold™ Hydro with water to water houseplants, can I save the remaining water mix for next week?
A: Absolutely you can save the mixed Blue Gold™ Hydro product for the next week if you keep it in a cool and dark place. It may or could take on a slight smell to it? For best results mix it at 1 teaspoon per five gallons of water or 1 m/L per gallon of water for the roots, and foliar feed with one tablespoon per gallon of foliar spray after you water the roots in.
Q: What are the Blue Gold™ Hydro rates to use when I have pest and/or disease in my plants?
A: If you encounter a problematic pest or disease, increase foliar spray to 3 to 4 tbsp per 1 gallon of water until the issue is alleviated through the improved health of the plant or soil. If your problems persist, please contact us for free recommendations regarding your pH and soil nutrition so you can be pest and disease free without the use of pesticides, herbicides, and biocides.
Q: So I use the Blue Gold™ Hydro as the solution in the AG tank (it’s 144 oz tank, and I’ve been doing the 2ml every 14 days, and I add with about 12-24 oz of water at the same time during nutrient addition). After I transplant to the Black Gold Soil (less than 1-1-1 NPK) I just have been using filtered water (PUR from city tap). Would the Fusion Compost VEG and/or Super Carb be better used post-transplanting (as a mixed water solution) such as a weekly feed once I have the plants in the raised bed? The weather has been wacky in NEO this year; I’m waiting until at least the 25th (May), before I start moving these herbs outside into raised beds.
A: Post transplanting into the Black Gold Soil you can use 1 m/L of the Blue Gold™ Hydro and 2 m/L of the Super Carb to water the herbs with after transplanting. Then foliar feed them with two/three teaspoons of the Hydro and 1 teaspoon of the Super Carb like 3-4x per week. If you choose to use the Fusion Compost VEG then use it by itself at like 300-450 PPM (maybe 2 teaspoons per 1 gallon of water (depending on water conditions?) to water the plants and use the Garden/Super Carb to foliar them. Hope this helps, call with any questions.
Q: I am experimenting with a small herb garden and mason jar Kratky Method garden in my basement. Is Blue Gold™ Hydro product organic and safe for all plants? Also, can I use this for my plants that are in pots with soil?
A: Yes, Blue Gold™ Hydro is safe for all plants and safe for plants used in consumption. It is certified organic through Oregon Tilth. Our products can be used indoors or outdoors, in potted plants or in the soil. Our products have a few plant-based extracts in it that really set off an explosion of root growth. So in your potted plants, you may have to upgrade pot size sooner than you thought. Blue Gold™ Hydro increase water penetration into the soil, and you should be prepared to taper back your normal water schedule. Some people forgo their watering schedule and water only once a week using the root drench instructions and then foliar spray a small amount every day or every other day.
Thank you for the reply. I am already impressed after three days my basil plant in water (mason jar and coco chunks), and your product is amazing. I used one gallon of h20 and a teaspoon of Blue Gold™ Hydro. Awesome! I am using it for my starter seeds in soil and basil, and it seems to be going great. I am very impressed and happy with the product. I love the fact it is organic. I will be purchasing again and will use this exclusively in the future for all of my indoor and outdoor gardenings.
Q: Will Blue Gold™ Hydro work well for Lucky Bamboo planted in water?
A: Yes, the Blue Gold™ Hydro will work well in this situation at 1/4 m/L (about 4 drops) per 1 gallon of water.
Q: Can Blue Gold™ Hydro be used to help my Yucca Plants, Cactus, and Joshua Trees?
A: The Blue Gold™ Hydro will absolutely help your Yucca, Cactus and Joshua Trees and any other specialized plants with fantastic root systems (especially the Joshua Tree) from the root system and foliar feeds. To put this in perspective, we did experiments on Aloe with the Blue Gold™ Garden and the growth acceleration of one of the slowest growing plants there is. And the results were eye-opening. So yes, water them at the rate of 1 teaspoon per 5-gallon bucket of water and foliar feed them at 2 teaspoons per 1 gallon of foliar spray.
Q: Is Blue Gold™ Hydro good for vegetative and bloom or just bloom?
A: Blue Gold ™ Hydro is used all the way from clone to harvest. Use it at 1-2 m/l per gallon of veg/flower reservoir on the roots of the plants. And use 10-15 m/l on the top side foliar (veg/flower) of the plants. Same applies to the soil-grown plants with the Blue Gold™ Hydro. You must reduce your usual NPK synthetic nutrients by 75% to 90% because the Blue Gold™ Hydro makes them so available and amps them up.
Q: Can Blue Gold™ Hydro be used as a soil drench as well? I do rain gutter, and kiddie pool grow bags. Do you know the NPK value for it?
A: Yes, you can use Blue Gold™ Hydro for a soil drench. However, you will see best results using our Blue Gold™ Garden Blend for soil and Blue Gold™ Hydro for hydroponics. Officially, the NPK rating is 0-0-0. Blue Gold™ Solutions are foremost a nutrient delivery tool. They will break nutrients down for instant plant feeding, thus enabling you to use fewer fertilizer inputs. Often, many plants do not require additional inputs other than the Blue Gold™ Solution(s) when used in soil. Many of our commercial hydroponic customers are using as little as 10% of their usual inputs when combining with a Blue Gold™ Solution. We input over 30 gallons of plant extracts and 30 lbs of nutrients (such as NPK) into a 200-gallon batch during the manufacturing process. Many NPK products are like an 8 count Crayola box, and Blue Gold™ is your 250 count super deluxe crayon set. We have a Vegetative NPK and a Flower NPK as well.
Q: Will Blue Gold™ Hydro help with seed germination?
A: Yes, it will! It is safe to foliar feed newly germinated seeds and sprouts every day at a rate of 1 tsp per 1 gallon of water. To increase seed germination rates, it is beneficial to soak your seeds in the Blue Gold™ Solution at a rate of 1 Tsp per 1 gallon of water mixture for 15 to 45 minutes just before planting. You can increase your success with transplanting plants with an immediate foliar and root application. It is beneficial to spray your garden soil during the winter months in preparation for spring planting. Blue Gold™ Solutions can be sprayed on top of snow up to ten times over the winter for soil preparation. Blue Gold™ Solutions can provide frost/freeze and extreme heat protection to plants and soils. They are most effective at doing so with adequately balanced nutritious soils. See examples of Blue Gold™ solutions offering frost and freeze protection here, here, and here.
Q: Does Blue Gold™ Hydro help with root rot?
A: Yes. It is most effective at treating root rot when nutrients used with it are properly adjusted and a Carbohydrate, like our Super Carb, is also used.
Q: My seven epiphyllums have had root rot at their stem bases. They are all different ages/sizes. They have the same soil/treatment etc. I have four dozen plants. Will Blue Gold™ Hydro work? If not, what would? Help!
A: With what you have briefly described is your plant sap and soil pH is low, but primarily the sap pH is low. This low/lower sap pH condition locks out macronutrients such as Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, and Na (salts) among other things but chiefly Calcium, which is the steering wheel that drives the bus. Using the Blue Gold™ Hydro in the soil (root zone feeding and foliar feeding) the plants will react with the plant immune system, and then the plant will move the sap pH towards 6.4, where you want to be. This increased plant immune system will then regulate Calcium and other macronutrients and kick out the disease symptoms you’re experiencing. An increased immune system means increased levels of BRIXX in the plant sap.
Q: My containers are 3 gallons. How much and how often do I use Blue Gold™ Hydro?
A: For foliar applications, use 15 m/L per gallon of water. Treat reservoir tanks every 5 to 10 days with 1 to 2 m/L per gallon of water. If you use this in your reservoir, you will see best results when used in conjunction with Blue Gold™ Super Carb, our carbohydrate solution. If using Super Carb, you can add 2 m/L of the carb per gallon of water. For superior results be sure to check out our non-caustic 0.0 to 14 pH adjusting solutions: pH UP and pH Down.
Q: I have a 20-gallon hydroponic tower garden system. How much of Blue Gold™ Hydro should I use?
A: If you are using an NPK fertilizer with this, please reduce the NPK amount by UP TO 90% and add 1 m/l Blue Gold™ Hydro per gallon. For you, 20m/l = 4 teaspoons. Then we recommend adding 2m/l of our Blue Gold™ Super Carb per gallon which is 40m/l for your 20 gallons. Your nutrient PPM should be around 200 to 400 PPM. Depending on what you are growing you could up the Blue Gold™ Hydro to 1.5m/l to 2m/l Hydro per 1 gallon of your reservoir along with the Super Carb. With this mix, foliar feed the plants with the Blue Gold™ Hydro at 1 tablespoon (15m/l) per 1 gallon daily for at least 4x per week. You can add the Super Carb into the foliar mix at 5 m/l per 1 gallon and you will very surprised at the response with it and your plant’s increased BRIXX levels. If you are using city water, please let it sit for 1-2 days so some/most of the chemicals can leach out. The chemicals are hard on the plants and hinder their production. Try to use rainwater for the foliar, especially if you are on city water.
Q: When using Blue Gold™ Hydro with hydroponics, will it provide all of the nutrients needed or do I need an additional product?
A: When used alone, the first benefit is that Blue Gold™ Hydro can significantly reduce the inputs of whatever program you are currently using (by up to 90%). Some growers do use just the Blue Gold™ Hydro. We have many commercial and smaller hydroponic farmers using Blue Gold™ Hydro combined with Blue Gold™ Super Carb (our biology) and our pH Up and Down solutions. However, as they and we have discovered there is a point where there may be too many plants in the system for the Blue Gold™ Hydro to do the job alone. In those cases, we have a product called Compost Fusion: Vegetative or Flower. They are organic NPKs (and many many more nutrients) that is in a paste form that will dissolve quickly in water.
Q: I am interested in growing vegetables hydroponically. Which Blue Gold™ products do I need to buy to be “fully covered”?
A: To answer your question thoroughly, we would like to know your exact definition of hydroponically? Is that just water and no media association? Because, if you are growing with rock wool or coco, this will change things due to the high amounts of salts. However with that said we would recommend the Blue Gold™ Hydro, Blue Gold™ Super Carb, and you could add the Blue Gold™ Fusion Compost NPK Paste (Vegetative or Flower depending on what you’re growing). Since all systems vary, we would suggest that you give James a call (877-732-5360 Ext 103) so he can walk you through the information quickly.
Q: I purchased Blue Gold™ Hydro and put it in my Tower Garden by Juice Plus. I put 20 m/L Hydro 40 m/L Blue Gold™ Super Carb. I already had a solution of fertilizer that is purchased from Juice Plus Tower Garden in the water reservoir, which holds 20 gallons. My plants went limp, and I am afraid they are dying. I wanted to use Hydro mainly for bugs that eat my plants. Is there a solution to this?
A: What happened is that the Blue Gold™ Solutions amped up the existing fertilizer that you mentioned was in your Garden Tower and shocked the plants. The label says if you are adding this to another fertilizer to cut it back by 75% to 90%. So I would transfer the current Garden Tower water to some buckets and save it. Then flush (add just water) the plants with about 12 gallons of water for a day or so. Then add back around 8 gallons of the old mix, you just put in a bucket, and the plants will take off. Not sure what the other fertilizer has in it but a 12 to 8 ratio will bring them back. The bugs are coming because the Tower Garden fertilizer is a salt based fertilizer and the plant sap pH levels are probably 6.9 to 7.2, which brings in the bugs. Make sure your feeding solutions in the tower are at 6.4 pH for best results. This goes with soil also. We are sorry for the mess, but you always have to cut the Blue Gold™ way back to your fertilizer or cut your fertilizer by 75% to 90%. Call me directly with any questions if the above seems confusing or you have more questions. We recommend to foliar feed the plants at 30m/l (1 ounce) Hydro and 10m/l (two teaspoons) Super Carb to help revive the plants and keep the bugs away. Do this at 2x-3x per week on the foliars.
Q: I’m using Blue Gold™ Super Carb together with Blue Gold™ Hydro on my deep water set up. But it’s turning the water brown and killing the roots. Why?
A: No Blue Gold™ Solution will kill the roots, plants, or flowers, etc. It has just the opposite effect with snow white, vibrant, soft and pliable roots; always has. (You can see quite a few pictures of this in our Product Magazine.) So the only major problem is one of two things. Something else (chemical?) is in the reservoir solution or the rates that you are using are too high. In DWC this has always been a problem when people use the Blue Gold™ with chemicals and not cutting them back or using too much of the Blue Gold™ Solution? Blue Gold™ Solutions will amp up anything they touch that is why we say you MUST cut your nutrients by 90% minimum to start off if you are going to use the Blue Gold™ Hydro with synthetic fertilizers. We would suggest that you flush your system immediately for 1 day on just water and then refill with clean non-chlorinated water and then add 1 m/l to 2m/l of the Blue Gold™ Hydro per 20 gallons of water along with 2 m/l to 3m/l of the Blue Gold™ Super Carb per 20 gallons of reservoir. You also may add 1 tablespoon of Epsom Salt per 20 gallons also. This will kick-start the plant roots back on the right track. Then they will want to start eating again, so then you can feed up. Use 5m/l to 10m/l of the Blue Gold™ Hydro on a foliar feed 3-4x per week also with the same m/l of the Super Carb. This will get the plants back. Please pick up and call us (877-732-5360 Ext 103) anytime and we can help when a situation arises. DWC makes plants run differently and is harder on them than soil. If you are using chlorinated city water, please let it sit for a few days to evaporate the chemicals otherwise the chemicals are very hard on the plants. We think the issue was your Blue Gold™ rates for DWC are or were way too high in conjunction with other inputs. 1m/l will run them per 10-20 gallons, but let’s start off smaller to get them back. We apologize for the unforeseen troubles, but a quick flush and they will be screaming back.
Q: I just added Blue Gold™ Hydro to my reservoir, and it’s foaming everywhere. Do I have to disconnect my bubble stone and pump?
A: Depending on your water pH and softness the Blue Gold™ Hydro at 1m/l per gallon should not foam or bubble. However, if you add some Blue Gold™ Super Carb at 2m/l per gallon (or you can try another carb source that will not gunk the reservoir) to the reservoir that should stop any foaming or bubbling action. Again, depending on your water softness you may see some slight bubbling with the Blue Gold™ Hydro. If it is persistent just as you said, stop the aerator for a few hours and add a carb and start it back up. Carbohydrates will stop any foaming action usually across the board. This is why we suggest the Blue Gold™ Super Carb for the de-foaming action and all the nutrients it brings to the plants.
Q: My airstone, which delivers air into my Hydroponic reservoir, is causing rampant foaming. How do I combat the foam?
A: Blue Gold™ Hydro technology has surfactant-like properties. The herbs and minerals are micronized to the nano level, and this process results in a bio-surfactant substance. In all cases, Blue Gold™ Hydro or Blue Gold™ Base Blend is designed to be used in conjunction with Blue Gold™ Super Carb. Not only does the Super Carb provide the sugar fuel for your microbial army, but carbohydrates reduce the foaming properties of surfactants. In a clean tank add 2 mL of Super Carb, then add 1 mL of Blue Gold™ Hydro. The carb will cut the foaming. If you are using adjusted rates based on your protocol, then apply a base principle of twice the amount of carb as the amount of Blue Gold™ Hydro. Foaming issues occur due to agitation or aeration. When using Blue Gold™ Hydro, you do not need to aerate or agitate as often as you usually would. Generally, you can cut your aeration/agitation protocols by 50% to 90% depending on your reservoir size and level of nutrient input.
Q: Why did Blue Gold™ Hydro make foam in my aquaponics? How are you supposed to use Blue Gold™ Hydro in aquaponics?
A: Blue Gold™ Hydro technology has surfactant-like properties. The herbs and minerals are micronized to the nano level, and this process results in a bio-surfactant substance. In all cases, Blue Gold™ Hydro or Blue Gold™ Base Blend is designed to be used in conjunction with Blue Gold™ Super Carb. Not only does the Blue Gold™ Super Carb provide the sugar fuel for your microbial army, but carbohydrates reduce the foaming properties of surfactants. In a clean tank, add 2 mL of Blue Gold™ Super Carb, then add 1 mL of Blue Gold™ Hydro. The Super Carb will cut the foaming. If you are using adjusted rates based on your protocol, then apply a base principle of twice the amount of Super Carb as the amount of Blue Gold™ Hydro. Foaming issues occur due to agitation or aeration. When using Blue Gold™ Hydro (or Base Blend), you do not need to aerate or agitate as often as you usually would. Generally, you can cut your aeration/agitation protocols by 50% to 90% depending on your reservoir size and level of nutrient input.
Q: How would I use Blue Gold™ Super Carb and Blue Gold™ Hydro in my AeroGarden Extra (LED)? How much should I add and when?
A: Aerogardens use very small amounts of the solutions, and you will use an m/l syringe to measure if you have one. To keep it simple you can take a 1-gallon container and mix your foliar spray and keep it under the counter to fill say a simple spray bottle that you may have around. Make sure you clean it very well because you do not want any of the chemicals mixing with the Blue Gold™ Hydro. Or you can use very small measuring spoons to do the math. As always you only want very small amounts in the water and foliar the top with much more like 1 teaspoon/tablespoon (5m/l – 15m/l) per 1-gallon of clean water. For best results always use Blue Gold™ solutions on the bottom (soil/hydro) roots and foliar at the top. Follow the directions of the Blue Gold™ Hydro at 1 m/l per 1 gallon of Hydro water with 1-2 m/l of the Super Carb of gallon Hydro water for the bottom of the plant. They use 1 teaspoon of the Blue Gold™ Hydro and 1 teaspoon of the Super Carb to mix a gallon of foliar feed to put in your small spray bottle. Your Blue Gold™ Hydro mix should last 7-10 days in the Hydro system, and then you will replenish the same water with the same amounts. The plants will tell you when they need more. Foliar spray every day with the 1 teaspoon rates and you will get those Amazing Results you are after. If you are using city water, please let it sit 24-48 hrs in an open container to gas off the chemicals. You do not need anymore LED lights. Just place the aerogarden in/on a window sill or as close to natural light as you can even if it is across the room. The plants will absorb these natural light spectrum rays and help supplement the LED rays. Always use the most natural light as you can if you can for best results.

What differentiates the Blue Gold™ Garden, Blue Gold™ Vibrant Floral, Blue Gold™ Rose Blend, and Blue Gold™ Hydro Solutions? We have discovered that the key to successful fertilizer formulae and successful growing is the balance as nature intended. Various nutrients dumped willy-nilly on the soil capsizes the balance in the soil and most often cause Nutrient Lock Out, reducing plant uptake of those nutrients by 70 – 90%, easily. By applying fertilizers that are balanced ratios, they are correctly synchronized for immediate usage. Using this knowledge, we have developed each of the Blue Gold™ formulas to target specific purposes or plants specifically. Example: Rose for optimum Rose vegetative and bloom growth. Hydro for optimized results in a hydroponic (including DWC) type environment. Vibrant Floral is for optimized flower growth in flowering plants. And Garden Blend for optimized vegetative and fruitproduction in gardens. Each product, while made using the same ingredients are made with differing quantities of those ingredients for maximum effect in those plants. Blue Gold™ Garden Blend will work amazingly well on flowering plants, but never as well as the Blue Gold™ Vibrant Floral will, and so on.
Q: If it’s organic, why isn’t it approved by OMRI?
A: Blue Gold™ Solutions are certified organic by private organizations like Oregon Tilth and others. OMRI is not the only organic certifier in the nation. We have elected to get organic certification through other programs, while we are applying to OMRI, USDA, etc. since they are very long and drawn out processes.
Q: Is Blue Gold™ Hydro safe for skin contact?
A: Yes. Very safe. Blue Gold™ Solutions are not harmful to skin, however, if contact occurs be sure to wash afterward to avoid dry skin. The saponins inside the Solutions will strip the oils off your skin and leave it too dry (itching) with prolonged contact to the skin from concentrate.
Q: Is Blue Gold™ Hydro high nitrogen, high potassium, or high phosphorus?
A: The Blue Gold™ Hydro is a wetting agent/nutrient magnifier. It does not carry an NPK rating, but your plants will respond as it had. Look at our Fusion Compost VEG or Fusion Compost FLOWER for your NPK rating if that is what you desire.
Blue Gold™ Hydro is not for sale in Oregon State and Washington State.
