The following Base Soil Mixes and Worm Casting Mixes were selected for best fits for Original CHO sugar based plant food regimen.  The sugar based formulas go perfect with these types of soil mixes and make perfect homes for living microbes.

Best base mix soils loaded with full macro micro nutrient light mix.

Running Original CHO requires just the right profile of micro and macro nutrients to make up the trace amount of salts needed for the right balance ratio to sugars from the CHO feeding program.

The easiest and most fool proof method of growing vertical sea of green in a rack environment using the SGS Original CHO feeding program starts with selecting the right soil base mix.

The right soil mix needs to be loaded with a wide range of macro and micro nutrients in a light soil mix.  rather than starting with lightly loaded substrate of coco mix that requires adding npk fertilzers.

If the soil base mix has a wide, balanced combination of macro and micro nutrients preloaded in the beginning, then the entire grow cycle can be performed with a simple 2 part soil amendment feeding program consisting of Original CHO Aqua and activated GREEN Formulas.   This CHO program does not require any additional fertilizers added at any time during the grow cycle, even during flower weeks 5-7.

This zero fertilizer feeding system takes all the guess work out of balancing NPK salts since the plants get plenty of trace macro and micro nutrients in the base soil mix.

Flower Auto Pilot without NPK.  The goal for aerobic balance of bio material is 96.6% Sugars (CHO) and 3.4% Salts (Micro & Macro Nutrients).  The target is to keep your plants aerobic.  The plants frequency turn to anaerobic when the balance shifts towards salts, and this change in the plant’s make up invites unwanted pests, disease and pathogens.


Original CHO GREEN Formula is a perfect sugar based non metal foliar spray that can be used throughout the entire grow cycle from vegegtative to flower.

Spray the Orignal CHO GREEN Formula foliar mix everyday on your stocks, leaves and flowers (buds) and watch your flower explode with sugar development.  This process helps increase carbohydrates, fats & lipids and proteins development.  This burst of CHO molecules also helps keep your plants aerobic as well as increases both THC potency and the overall terpene profile.

Light·Mix® is the ideal substrate for organic growers who want to control their plant growth by applying liquid fertilizers from the beginning of the grow cycle. Larger quantities of fertilizers may be applied on demand to any kind of plant, including heavy feeders, without the risk of overloading the substrate and causing nutrient burn.  Micro activity is created as the liquids work with the substrate to produce organic catalysts. Light·Mix® is also ideal for cuttings, young plants, and seedlings. This mixture ensures the right atmosphere for the development of rapid root structures and provides a foundation for vigorous growth.  Light·Mix® has been blended to ensure optimal drainage throughout the entire medium, a property that is essential if automatic irrigation systems are used.

Substrates such as coco based mixes require an additional supplement of nutrients to make up for the lack of calcium, magnesium and iron plants need.
