Cutting Edge Solutions

Cutting Edge Solutions was founded by John Piccirili and August Mayo in 2000 in Northern California. Pairing their knowledge of plant nutrition and organic chemistry, the two began research and development that focused on identifying the key nutritional requirements - particularly relating to hydroponic gardening - and began formulating a new approach to complete plant nutrition.

Cutting Edge’s three part nutrient program Grow/Micro/Bloom is highly concentrated and will leave fewer salts on your soil or hydroponic medium, giving you the best bang for your buck. You will notice an improvement in plant health when switching to Cutting Edge Solutions from other three part nutrients.

Plant-Amp is derived from CES’s unique and proprietary micro-organism based chelation process, which harnesses the power of Nature’s smallest creatures to “fix” plant food for easy uptake. Plant Amp’s chelated calcium will not lock-up important compounds such as phosphorous, silicates, or sulfur, while facilitating calcium uptake by plant roots and leaves. Calcium is a critical component in mediating growth responses in plants such as leaf and stem photo-orientation.

Uncle John’s Blend is a unique elixir developed to increase flowering and fruit production in vascular plants. CES uses their chelation process on a blend of complex potassium, iron, manganese, zinc, silicon, and a generous helping of carbohydrates to create Uncle John’s Blend. Plants tested using UJB have shown increases in flower and fruit set, pathogen resistance, CO2 uptake, and overall chlorophyll production. All CES nutrients are available in Quart, Gallon, 2.5 Gallon, 6 Gallon and 20 Gallon sizes.
