Oregon’s Only produces a line of some of the finest organic nutrients available called Nectar for the Gods.
This is the 2nd piece of a 4 part blog series that will dive into each nutrient level they offer. Part 2 will focus on their “Beginner line”
Medusa’s Magic was originally designed as “Part A” of a three-part nutrient line. To brew Medusa’s Magic, proteins and enzymes are gently extracted from materials, and then suspended in a worm casting tea. Nitrogen in Medusa’s Magic is derived from a protein which will result in a healthier, more natural growth pattern in your plants. The healthier the plant, the more efficient the plant’s natural response to produce its own defense mechanisms against pests and disease.
Gaia Mania is one of Oregon’s Only Organics’ original products, and was designed to work as a standalone nutrient for home gardeners. This product has been around for many years, under many labels, and has now found its home as Gaia Mania. Gaia Mania is a careful blend of organic materials, enzymatically processed to extract only proteins and humates. This digestion process is the beginning step in the absorption of vitamins, acids and minerals by the plant. Gaia Mania has the ability to feed plants immediately, and is also designed to promote microbial populations in your medium, offering greater protection to plants’ root systems. All of the nitrogen in this product is protein based. This is the healthiest form of nitrogen for plants, promoting strong, healthy growth without a tendency toward elongation as with sodium based nitrates. Plants grow healthiest when they are grown with proteins, organic acids, and calcium based products. Addition of calcium will improve the uptake of Gaia Mania.
Zeus Juice was “Part C” of our original three part line. It is the catalyst in the line and is an essential part of nutrient absorption without a microbial field. Compounds in Zeus Juice are 100% water soluble and are absorbed immediately, acting as a catalyst to produce accelerated growth and nutrient uptake. With increased metabolic rates, Zeus Juice offers optimal nutrient availability, healthy plant growth, healthy prolific rooting and protection from transplant shock. Zeus Juice can also be used as a germination aid, softening the seed coat and providing nutrients for the first stages of life.
Hercules was known for his strength and power: a perfect name for a product that gives your plants just that. Herculean Harvest increases the availability of calcium and phosphorus to your plants and soil, producing a wide range of benefits to plant health, structure and flavor, contributing to a vigorous soil food web and improving accessibility of nutrients. The active ingredient in bone meal, calcium phosphate, helps to carry all nutrients to the plant, except for nitrogen and potassium. Calcium is essential for supplying plant growth energy in order to sustain life and growth, and promotes solid stems through stronger cell development. Calcium also increases the cation exchange capacity of soils, making nutrients more available to microbial activity and ultimately to the plant. The addition of Herculean Harvest to any nutrient line will increase size, aroma and flavor of the plants’ fruit. It also aides in washing salt from a potting soil or soilless medium, and can be used as part of a soil flush solution.
Hades Down is a pH adjusting liquid used to lower the pH of your nutrient solution. Hades Down chelates elements in the nutrient solution into stable, slow releasing forms which are easier for plants to absorb. Providing readily absorbed natural molecules, Hades Down has the ability to stimulate microorganisms and plant growth. This stimulation will directly affect increases in CO2 production, photosynthesis, beneficial microbes, and plant vigor and health. When mixing fertilizers in a reservoir, Hades Down will help prevent nutrient solution fall out.
Olympus Up is the Nectar for the Gods pH up product. Most gardeners know to adjust the pH of their nutrient solution before use. By using liquid calcium as a pH adjusting component, you will add more calcium to your plants’ cell structure, promoting cell wall integrity. Residual Olympus Up in the soil will increase aeration, promote microbial activity by offering a food source for the soil biota, and contribute to nutrient delivery. Olympus Up is essential when using Herculean Harvest. We recommend using Olympus Up with Herculean Harvest to form an amazing calcium food source for soil microbes. They may also be used together for a more efficient flush, either at the end of your growing cycle, or in new potting medium to stabilize pH and prepare for planting.
Here is a video of Scott from Oregon’s Only going into more detail how each of these 4 are made and used:
