Product Usage

They can be used as stand-alone. However, for optimum growth and yields all 3 products are required. Grow and Base during your veg cycle and Base and Bloom for your flowering cycle.

Each product has a teaspoon included. The following conversions are provided for measuring product by teaspoon rather than a scale.

1 tsp. Grow = 5 grams

1 tsp. Base = 7 grams

1 tsp. Bloom = 6.5 grams

Dakine 420 recommends a PPM meter set at a 500 scale. However, if you don’t have one, using the recommended grams per gallon will get you pretty close.

We suggest mixing all nutrients separately, then adding them to your reservoir or watering device. This prevents the possibility of Calcium and Phosphorous locking each other out if mixed together.

You can just simply add required amounts separately into your reservoir or watering device. However, for best results use a jar or small container with a lid. Vigorously shake for 15 seconds and add to reservoir or watering device.

No. Our 3 part system Rocks! However, depending on your environment and type of growing medium, our other products have great benefits


Our Atomic Root Powder helps promote healthy root colonization in all grow mediums.

Shock & Awe Bloom Boost is a high phosphorous pH boost to help promote larger flowers.

CalMag is used as a supplement when growing in Coco Coir, but is an all around good supplement.

Foliar Science is best used for helping plants that have experienced nutrient lock out or have been under-fed. Use it on yellowing plants and see them turn dark green in no time.

Our nutrients are very well balanced and almost always come out pH perfect between 6.0 and 7.0. However, some domestic water supplies and wells have very low or high pH values. We recommend using  pH paper or pH meter.

If you are drain to waste you need a 10% run off.

All of the various nutrient options can be overwhelming when you are a new grower. We recommend getting started with our core nutrient system, which is simply 3 parts; Base, Grow, and Bloom. Feed your plants Base throughout the grow cycle. Add Grow to your feeding schedule during the vegetative (veg) stage, and Bloom for flower stage. So you only use 2 at a time. All of our products are pH balanced so typically, no pH up or down are needed, and most of the time no CalMag is needed either.


Basic instructions, along with recommended feeding schedule are printed on each Dakine 420 product label, however, if you ever need further instructions or advice, please don’t hesitate to email us or give us a call (541) 420-4645.

Our Starter Kit is perfect for new growers, and contains enough Base, Grow, and Bloom to run a plant or two from start to finish. Use coupon code HIGHYIELD10 at checkout to receive 10% off of our Starter Kits and Advanced Growers Kits. 

We have four products that are organic (Pure Coco, Bio Minerals, Atomic Root Powder and Flat Line) and all the others are food grade and mineral based.

The 1 teaspoon scoop that comes in our 250 gram, 500 gram, 1000 gram and 2000 gram jars is equal to the following:

Grow – 5 grams
Base – 7 grams
Bloom – 6 grams
Atomic Root Powder – 3 grams
Bio Minerals – 5 grams
CalMag – 6 grams
Shock & Awe – 5 grams
Foliar Science – 4 grams
Sticky Icky – 4 grams.

Absolutely! They work great either way and we offer a feed chart calculator for both.

Yes, airstones will help them stay oxygenated.

Yes, while we recommend using Dakine 420 across the board, they can be used with other product lines.  If and when doing so, keep ppm in mind and don’t exceed the recommended ppm levels.

Sticky Icky can be used the entire cycle at a rate of 1 gram per gallon of water on flush days.


Depends on your order size but for the indy home grower and smaller commercial grows, usually not. (Ask rep or customer service for details)

Depending on where you live, allow 5-7 Business Days. (Faster Options Available)
