Vancouver, BC, September 16, 2015 – INVICTUS MD STRATEGIES CORP. (“Invictus MD” or the “Company”) (CSE: IMH; OTC: IVITF; FRA: 8IS) is pleased to provide an update on Future Harvest Development Ltd. (“Future Harvest”), of which Invictus MD owns 60%, and their newly expanded line-up of products for the fall season.
This year Future Harvest has released a new line-up of wicking gardens to the market, including the Chili Grow, Herb Grow, and Duo Grow Gardens. These gardens contain smart reservoirs that contain between 7–12 liters of water and the feeder mats in each pot pull water up directly to the roots only when water is needed. This method ensures that roots are never water logged or overly dry, resulting in a continual flow of oxygen.
These wicking gardens will increase the size of your harvest on average by 2 times compared to those produced with regular pots or growbags. The increased harvest is a direct result of having optimal root conditions throughout its life.
Micro Grow Light Garden
Fresh off the success of the critically acclaimed Grow Light Garden, Future Harvest has developed and launched a garden that is half the size of the original, the ‘Micro Grow Light Garden’. This new ultra compact size and shape is ideal for table or kitchen counter-top use. The sturdy base and tray acts as a reservoir for water. In this tray sits a stand covered by a sheet of absorbent cloth that draws water up and into the bottoms of the planted seed trays by capillary action.
Included in the Micro Grow Light Garden are Sunblaster 6400K T5HO fluorescent tube lighting and a curved reflector hood that floods the growing area in full spectrum light, while using 20% less electricity than traditional lighting systems. The height of the hood is fully adjustable, and is secured with new adjusting collars.
The Micro Grow Light Garden is available in original black or white, and is perfect for the home, office or restaurant. Travis Brown, Sales Manager of Future Harvest commented, “Urban farming and gardening is becoming increasingly popular and these wicking gardens are perfect for this quickly growing market. Future Harvest has received excellent customer feedback and reviews on the gardens thus far, and we look forward to continual growth as the industry strengthens and demand continues to rise.”
Calnesium Nutrient Boost
Calnesium is the newest addition to Future Harvest’s Plantlife Products complete hydroponic fertilizer line. Calnesium is a powerful blend of Nitrogen, Calcium and Magnesium that is specifically designed to provide an additional nutrient boost from our 3 part hydroponic fertilizer for crops that demand it, and is an excellent additive to prevent blossom end rot on tomatoes. Canlesium can also be used as foliar spray for high value crops.
