The formulation of Pythoff Plus is a result of our extensive experience as water treatment chemists since 1966.  Pythoff PLUS can be implemented throughout the daily life of a hydroponic system:

  • Maintains working nutrient solutions – Pythoff PLUS maintains its condition and effective working life (0.5ml/L).  This helps prevent root browning, blocked drippers and build-up, which helps guarantee successful yields.  See FAQs below.
  • Enhances ‘flush’ water – Pythoff PLUS restores the condition of the rootzone, medium and hardware during the “weekly” system flush (0.5ml/L).  See FAQs below.
  • Maintains ‘stored’ water (RO and rain water) used for making nutrient solutions – Pythoff PLUS maintains its condition and prevents “stagnation” (0.5ml/L).  This prevents the likelihood of it contaminating the working nutrient solution.
  • Improves post-harvest system clean-up – Pythoff PLUS cleans system hardware AND “recyclable” mediums to prevent contamination of the next crop (2ml/L).
  • Pythoff PLUS is “standardized” to a specific concentration and has a shelf-stability of 10 yrs plus – The correct dosage is critical as underdosing will provide no benefit, and overdosing will harm root hairs.  Note, that competing products are generally highly unstable and therefore yield an untrustworthy dosage.
  • Safe to use from seed to harvest – Pythoff PLUS is very gentle on roots.
  • Pythoff PLUS is fully compatible with all FloraMax additives.
  • Dosage:  Nutrient solutions, flush water, and stored water, 0.5ml/L (2ml/Gal) | Post-harvest system clean-up, 2ml/L (8ml/Gal).
  • Available in 1L, 5L, 20L.
  • CAUTION: Not compatible with hydrogen peroxide, hypochlorous acid, beneficial bacteria or “live” systems.

FloraMax Pythoff PLUS or FloraMax System Maintenance – Which is best?

Pythoff PLUS is much more powerful than System Maintenance and is therefore the recommended “preventative” measure for hydroponic systems.  However, unlike System Maintenance, it is NOT compatible with beneficial bacteria.  Therefore, if you deem beneficial as being critical (?), then it will be necessary to use System Maintenance for maintaining the condition of working nutrient solutions.  However, note, that we definitely recommend using Pythoff PLUS for all other applications i.e. treating both ‘flush’ water and ‘stored’ water, and post-harvest system clean-up.

Nutrient Management

Poor growth is often due to the failure to maintain the condition of the nutrient solution. FloraMax Pythoff PLUS is ideal for this as it is fully compatible with our organic additives – NOTE, regular chlorines and hydrogen peroxide can destroy the organics in FloraMax and many other nutrient products!  Also, any water that is stored for more than 2-3 days should be dosed with Pythoff PLUS (2ml/Gal or 0.5ml/L), then stored in the dark for at least 24 hours prior to use in a hydroponic system.
