Cal-Mag Plus is a specialized calcium, magnesium & iron, plant supplement designed to compensate for deficiencies in some commercial and hydroponic nutrient programs. Cal-Mag Plus also compensates for the natural calcium draw of coco coir fiber.
Cal-Mag Plus provides a precise balance and optimal ratios of the calcium, magnesium, and iron that are critical throughout all stages of growth, especially in heavily fruiting plants and fast blooming annuals. Cal-Mag Plus is fortified with a proprietary blend of select trace minerals to help maximize yields in fruiting and flowering plant varieties, prevent blossom end rot in tomatoes and peppers, and reduce tip burn in lettuce. When used in combination with nutrient solutions Cal-Mag Plus functions as a catalyst to increase the uptake of essential minerals.
Cal-Mag Plus contains: calcium, magnesium, iron, boron, zinc, manganese, molybdenum, copper, cobalt, iodine, beneficial vitamins, twenty essential amino acids and select botanical plant extracts.

- Inhibits blossom end rot by providing additonal calcium and increasing nutrient uptake.
- Strengthens plant cells and tissues for increased resistance to stress.
- Prevents interveinal chlorosis, stunted growth rates, and upward leaf curl.
- Increases cell division and plant tissue development.
- Increases flower and fruit sets.
- Increases water, nutrient, and carbon dioxide uptake.
- Increases growth rates and crop maturity.
- For hydroponics, soil and container gardens
- Tomatoes, Peppers, Lettuce, fruit and flower bearing plants
- Use with Botanicare Nutrients or preferred nutrient program
- Always use to supplement reverse osmosis water
- Total Nitrogen (N): 2.0%, 2.0% Nitrate Nitrogen
- Calcium (Ca): 3.2%
- SMagnesium (Mg): 1.2%, 1.2% Water Soluble Magnesium (Mg)
- Iron (Fe): 0.1%, 0.1% Chelated Iron (Fe)
Derived from: Calcium Nitrate, Magnesium Nitrate, Iron EDTA
- Soil Container Gardens: Use 1 tsp (5 ml) per gallon (4 l) of water.
- Accelerated formula: Use 2 tsp (10 ml) per gallon (4 l) of water.
- Hydrogardens (Aeroponics, NFT, Soilless Mix):
- Nitrogen (N): 160-250 ppm
- Calcium (Ca): 160-280 ppm
- Magnesium (Mg): 45-75 ppm
- Iron (Fe): 2-7 ppm
Use with every watering with standard fertilizer program. This recommended application rate is normally sufficient to make up for any deficiencies in most soil or hydroponic formulas.
***Note - In hydroponics, iron falls out of the solution relatively fast due to use of magnetic driven pumps without grounding probes and high levels of dissolved oxygen from air stones and pumps.
