    Letís face it - general hydroponics gardening can cost you a lot of money, time and effort. You spend weeks taking care of your garden, you spend lots of dollars on it, all the while hoping for the big harvest you dream of getting someday.
    But many growers run into unexpected detours that delay or decrease harvest quality and size.

    It could be something that went wrong earlier in the crop cycle. Or your particular strain of plants is genetically programmed to create smallish flowers. Whatever it is, you and other savvy hydroponics gardeners are looking for ways to increase harvest size, and sometimes it gets frustrating.
    Say Hello To Bigger Harvests

    Now you can say goodbye to frustration and hello to bigger harvests. The good news is that thereís a surefire way to beat the odds and make your big harvest dreams come true. The answer: Advanced Nutrients Overdrive. Itís 100% guaranteed to give you rewarding harvests.

    Thatís because Overdrive contains a unique set of powerful ingredients that stimulate plants to increase their bloom productivity. Overdrive is a really special formula that does something that used to seem impossible. It makes plants go full throttle on flowering, even late in the game.

    You see, hydroponics plants have a life cycle thatís pretty much determined by genetics and environmental conditions. After youíve kicked them into bloom phase, theyíre programmed to live a few more weeks making flowers- then they inevitably start to decline.

    Even if youíre feeding them the best basic bloom fertilizer we make, all plants naturally peak and then go downhill. Thatís how Nature intends it, and thatís what happens in most gardens.

    But now you can use Overdrive to defy Nature and turn your plants back into fire-breathing champion producers, even when theyíre well into bloom cycle!

    Field testing shows that Overdrive reinvigorates flowering and creates a renewed burst of resins, scents, terpenoids, size and other very desirable traits that will give you impressive harvests instead of disappointing ones.

    You know what? It wasnít easy to create this late-season plant growth miracle formula. Our scientists spent several years examining plant tissue samples and running experiments on the kinds of plants you grow. They also examined the internal clocks that run a plantís life cycle.
    Exclusive, Powerful Flower Formula

    They discovered a never-before-used combination of vitamins, organic materials, nutrients and other ingredients that make Overdrive a powerhouse harvest-boosting formula used by thousands of growers worldwide.

    For example, Overdrive contains special forms of folic acid that work on a genetic level to reprogram blooming plants so they produce larger flowers late in bloom phase.

    Overdrive also contains plant-friendly forms of Vitamin C. These special vitamins increase photosynthesis efficiency and makes plants better able to deal with heat, high intensity lighting and stress.

    All of Overdriveís ingredients are matched so they work together to give your plants exactly what they need for late-season bloom building.
    See Flower Size Increase Right Away

    Now that you know how it works, Iím sure youíll be eager to apply Overdrive formula during the last four weeks of bloom phase, and watch amazing things happen in your garden. Cells repair themselves faster and increase their metabolism. Flower growth is ramped up. Roots take in more nutrients. Plants better resist disease and stress. The buds swell up before your very eyes when you use Overdrive.


    Unlike many other bloom phase additives made by competitors, Overdrive does not rely on typical potassium-phosphorus augmentation. Instead, itís a complete, unique feeding of ideal nutrients, vitamins and other substances that cause plants to redouble their flower production late in bloom phase.

    Better yet, Overdrive is precision-engineered so itís easy to use and safe to use. You will find that it mixes well and is taken in quickly by plants in any type of hydroponics system. Itís powerful and fast-acting.

    So when you need your plants to give you extra harvest bounty, Overdrive them.

    Hi nooby_dr_green_thumb
    I too am interested to know if anyone has used Overdrive.I have it but have never used it before.Your a little bit ahead of me with your grow Im week 5.So get it banged in my friend tell me what its like lol.It would be interesting to know if the buds swell before your very eyes (as the advanced nutes blurb says.They say that about all there stuff).I intend to replace My Big Bud with Overdrive at week 7 for 2 weeks then a one week flush.I too am using carboload and that stays in right to the final flush according to the AN calculator.
    Good luck keep us updated
    Peace

    I cant say really as its the first time Iv used it.All my girls are lookin well tho.Nice furry heads poppin up all over
    Im a little careful with the dosage tho I dont add the recommended dose.Iv nuked one plant already so Im being a little lighthanded with all my nutes
    I used the AN with boost from growers ark on my last grow and I was happy with the end result.But we all strive for bigger and better dont we?Hopin the big bud lives up to its name

    hey!.. i too have furry heads on my bigbud!! (sensi seeds version) strange, i'd never seen fur on a plant before. though he fur has all but gone now as the buds are growing in..

    i wouldnt suspect your nutes causing it- im using GHE nutes only and i have this furry bigbud phenomenon too.. (dont stress folks, it's defo not mould fur, though it does look like it!)

    im suspicious too.. the only way to tell if it makes a difference is to grow at least 6 clones- 3 with Overdrive and 3 without, in the same room under the same conditions.

    until i see that done, i'll remain skeptical and cynical.
