:D Hi guys!
We buy 20 litre containers of Cyco Platinum Series Grow A & B and Bloom A & B. What kind of storage conditions can the nutrients handle?
Eg, how hot are they allowed to get and can the containers be left outside in direct sunlight (lids on of course).
Also, what is their shelf life?
We are in Perth and our Grow setup is so far away from the shed that ideally we'd like to keep the nutrient bottles close to the system. But in summer it is often over 30 degrees celcius outside. Would exposure to those temperatures degrade the nutrients?

Thanks in advance!

Hello Catskills.

That is an excellent question.

In general, liquid fertilizers are more vulnerable to low temperatures rather than high temperatures. Freezing and thawing of liquid fertilizers can lead to salt and mineral fallout.

Platinum Series Grow A&B and Bloom A&B can withstand extended temperatures above 40c. So your hot summers in Perth are not a detriment to the nutrients whatsoever.

Hope this helps. Feel free to reach out if you have any other questions.
Cheers!
