News: Updated! Some government agencies are now directing labs to test for bacteria counts on dry materials. If your agency doesn't differentiate between good and bad bacteria in testing remember, Z7 is full of good bacteria so DO NOT spray Z7 on plants leaves and stems.
What is Z7?
Z7 is the biggest technology breakthrough in the last 50 years for growers and the plants they love!
Z7 is a super concentrated, two-part, proprietary probiotic enzymatic cleanser. Z7 is not a plant food; it simply allows plant foods to work better because the nutrients can get into the roots easier. Growers report a 25% decrease in plant food costs. Z7 increases the chances that the plant will grow to its genetic potential because it is constantly cleansing the root system. Z7 is to be used at every watering or feeding; Field growers should apply Z7 at first planting and whenever possible thereafter.
Z7 is super concentrated and economical for indoor and commercial growers; It costs only 2.5 cents per gallon of nutrient treated (calculated on the MSRP). A one gallon set treats 7,570 gallons of nutrient. Set sizes available: 8, 16 and 32 ounce, 1 gallon, 2.5 gallon and 5 gallon.
Z7 is naturally steeped with 100% of the ingredients being certified organic, natural or food grade. Z7’s revolutionary formula contains no oils, detergents, soaps, surfactants, chlorine, hydrogen peroxide, colloidal silver or harsh chemicals.
Why do you need Z7?
Whether you’re growing in soil, hydroponics or aquaponics, bio-film and micro-sized particulates in the root zone are the biggest problem facing growers today. When the semi-permeable membrane gets clogged it won’t transfer water, minerals and oxygen easily. If the plants don’t get the nutrients they need they will show a nutrient deficiency. The grower adds more food to compensate. This not only causes problems by over feeding the root zone but also upsets the osmotic transfer of water into the roots. The reduction of oxygen to the roots from bio-film formation is the major cause of root rot.
If you're not using Z7 you haven't seen your plant’s real potential! Z7 is not like any other product offered in the horticultural market today. In other words, it's not lipstick on a pig.

Compare the cost of Z7 to your old enzyme products, Hydrogen Peroxide, Colloidal Silver or whitening products using the link above. These products treat symptoms; Z7 goes right to the problem and fixes it. Many growers pay for multiple products and still don’t see the improvement that Z7 can do all by itself!
You will never get rid of chronic insects, powdery mildew unless you deal with your root zone first. Your root zone is either out of balance or it’s toxic. Yep, that's what I said. It's what I and many other growers believe and we're sticking to it. 95% of growers have root zone issues that cause plants to be unhealthy and give you the problems listed above. Even if they seemingly look healthy!
If you have Spider mites, powdery mildew, deficiency symptoms like yellow leaf, leaf spot, leaf drop, leaf curl, tip burn, purple stem, Interveinal Chlorosis, Interveinal necrosis, leaf and fruit deformation, low sugar Brix readings and low oil content in the finished product, you also have root zone issues that need to be solved.
Do your plants look pretty good in vegetation but when you get into bloom everything starts to go downhill? Have you ever wondered how they can look so good and then things go wrong? It’s the root zone, plain and simple.
Most growers have never seen truly healthy plants. They think they’re looking at healthy plants but the plants are nowhere near as healthy as they could be if they were using Z7! Treat your root zone with respect and your other problems will simply go away! That’s a promise. Don’t just grow more roots, grow healthy roots. Grow your plants from the roots up.

It will eliminate the need for dozens of expensive products and will become the standard fail-safe product for all growers. When water conditions are excellent, plant growth is simply spectacular.
How will Z7 help?
Have you noticed nutrient deficiencies in leaves, powdery mildew, leaf curl, tip burn, slow growth, pH fluctuations, white mineral build-up, leaf drop, purple stems, browning roots, slimy roots, slimy tanks and more but can’t explain why it’s happening? These are all indicators of microscopic particles, insoluble minerals, or organic matter clogging the roots, tubes, sprayers and growing medium. These conditions are toxic to the plant and restrict osmosis causing the plant to be disease and insect prone. Z7 cures these problems and more! Experience your plants “true” genetic potential for as little as 2.5 cents a gallon.
Do you already use an enzyme product? Do a side by side test with Z7 and your current enzyme product. Z7 will outperform every other enzyme product. As a matter of fact, Z7 growth blows the competition away. The comparison is not even close.
Did you know that stand alone enzyme products can cost up to 30 times more to use than Z7. Most enzyme products are so expensive most growers can't afford to use them. Z7 cost as little as 2.5 cents to treat a gallon of water. How can you beat that!
Why you shouldn't use sanitizing or sterilizing chemicals?
- These chemicals and minerals hurt the permeable membrane of the root where osmosis takes place. Scarred root cells can’t be repaired so energy goes to generating new roots not to the plant above ground. Plants become unhealthy due to this wasted energy.
- These chemicals and minerals stop the natural decomposition of encapsulated carbon to mineral particles small enough to transfer into the plant root system. This plugs the permeable membrane causing osmosis to slow and creating first stage root rot. Now you’ll see pests in greater number and leaf and stem nutrient deficiencies.
- These chemicals and minerals have to be applied over and over to get the plants through to bloom. This is costly and unnecessary. Rarely will these chemicals be able to totally control all bacteria and fungus because they can't penetrate through layer upon layer of the organic sludge that harbors the pests.
- These chemicals and minerals, if not used continually, will allow the bad bacteria to grow back unchecked. These bacterial outbreaks result in Pythium and other root rot issues. The bad bacteria or fungus always grow back first! Mother Nature makes sure of that.
- These chemicals and minerals encourage a soapy nutrient. While initially making more oxygen, once the chemical reaction stops so does the oxygen it makes.
- These chemicals work by reacting with organic materials in the water and nutrient by oxidizing them. Your roots are organic! These chemicals react with them too; and in a bad way!
- The word sterile means ‘will not support life’. Why would you want to sterilize your nutrients or soil with these chemicals and minerals?
- I could go on but do I need too?
The bottom line is and always will be: If a grower spends a dime on a product he expects 50 cents or more in return. Z7 is the ultimate insurance program to insure productive and profitable harvests.
Most growers are in denial when it comes to roots. They think that because the roots are somewhat white and they can't see microscopic particulate clogging the roots, it's not there. How wrong they are! Another misconception is that growers associate the browning of the roots as a stain from the plant food, when in fact it is the first or second stage of root rot. Microscopic particulate forms in both soil and hydroponics.
Since Z7 eliminates inanimate slime from roots, the roots can actually bring in the oxygen and minerals they need on demand. The additives and high quality plant foods that you are purchasing will now make a difference in how the plants grow. Now when you change plant foods or do side by side tests, you will actually see a difference determined by the quality of the plant food and not by the condition of the roots.
Z7 eliminates inanimate slime, inanimate slimy conditions, plant waste, organic waste, odors and mineral build up from hydroponic roots, piping, sprayers, tubes and tanks while the plants are growing. Z7 will reduce many hours of cleansing between harvests and in most cases eliminate taking the hydroponic or irrigation systems apart. This will reduce down time, reduce labor costs and help minimize the replacement of foggers, tubes, pipes, sprayers, drippers and pumps. The growing system must be kept free of inanimate slimy conditions and mineral build up otherwise it will not be able to obtain the highest degree of genetic growth possible from the plants. The reduction of plant death due to clogged drippers, tubes and sprayers will pay for using Z7. All the other benefits of Z7 is free and money in the pocket. Z7 is not a sanitizer, sterilizer or cleaner designed to kill bacteria.
Z7 helps to stabilize the pH swings of plant nutrient caused by the interaction between plant nutrients, plant waste, bacterial waste, soluble/insoluble minerals and problematic chemical additives added to local water supplies by government agencies.
Z7 is compatible with any hydroponic plant food (organic or chemical) or Mycorrhizae supplement. Z7 is compatible with chlorine, vinyl, plastic, glass, rubber, PVC, ABS and their glues.

Z7, the ultimate cleanser:
Z7 is a fantastic water conditioner. It makes the worst water much better for plant growth. So much so that Z7 will be the product of the decade for many growers! They are also seeing a 25% increase in their fertilizers effectiveness. That means they’re saving 25 dollars for every 100 dollars they spend on nutrients!
Originally, Flying Skull formulated Z7 to save the hydro industry from disaster. Too many growers were experiencing failures or below average plant growth from bad water and organic build up on roots, pipes, tubes, tanks and sprayers. Hydroponic systems that were advertised as better than soil were failing in greenhouses and homes around the world. Z7 met the challenge and exceeded in every expectation. Z7 keeps plants growing in hydro from experiencing low oxygen and nutrient intake because of inanimate slime blocking key root cells from performing their tasks. It also keeps equipment and irrigation equipment in like new condition, reducing labor and plant death from clogs and failures.
Watch us grow in the commercial and agricultural areas of horticulture. New vineyards, farms, nurseries and greenhouses are coming on line every day. We will post data as soon as we get it.
Insects and Pests
95 out of every 100 plants that have Spider Mites and other Pests have a root zone problem! Z7 will cure root zone problems so that the insecticide will have a better chance to work. Within a few days the plants will get much stronger and less dependent on insecticides. Z7 is not an insecticide; it’s Mother Nature on steroids.
User Tips for plants with insect problems:
- Flush the root zone with Z7 treated water. For every gallon of soil the pot will hold, flush with three times that amount of Z7 treated water. Let the flushed water drain to waste.
- Do not allow plant to soak up water or nutrients from drip trays.
- Outdoor growers apply Z7 at first planting, whenever possible and first sign of bugs. Mix in Z7 at every watering or feeding to help keep plants from attracting insects and powdery mildew.
Z7 replaces many products
Z7 replaces H2O2 (Hydrogen Peroxide), Chlorine, Chloramines, Colloidal Silver, enzymes and other products designed to clean, sterilize or oxygenate the soil, growing medium or nutrient solution.
Deficiency Symptoms and Unexplainable Problems
Growers with plants that have deficiency symptoms like yellow leaf, leaf spot, leaf drop, leaf curl, tip burn, purple stem, Interveinal chlorosis, Interveinal necrosis, leaf and fruit deformation, low sugar Brix readings and low oil content in the finished product, also have root zone problems that need to be solved now! Deficiency problems will not go away unless you deal with your root zone first! Treat your root zone with respect and your other problems will simply go away! That’s a promise. Flush the root zone with one gallon of Z7 treated water for every gallon of soil the pot will hold. Let the flushed water drain to waste. Do not allow plants to soak up water or nutrients from drip trays. Outdoor growers should apply Z7 at first sign of bugs. Keep using Z7.
Probiotic for Plants
Simply stated, a healthy plant can defend itself against insects and powdery mildew. Unhealthy plants can’t. Sure you might get a spider mite or two but a healthy plant will not get an infestation. Spider mites and the like are there to take out the sick plants so they won’t go to seed and interfere with future plant genetics. Use Z7 to make your plants healthy and your other problems will go away! Give Z7 an ounce of faith and it will give back a pound of gold!
What not to do:
When using Z7, discontinue the use of H2O2, Chlorine *, Chloramines, Colloidal Silver and other products designed to clean, sanitize or sterilize the soil, growing medium or nutrient solution. These products disrupt the ability of Z7 to work its magic. Those products are the very worst for growing plants. By pure definition the word sterilize or sanitize means “will not support life”. Now honestly, would you really pour some “will not support life” into your plants soil or hydro system? We think not. Killing pathogens like Pythium with chemicals doesn’t work!
Now having said that, Flying Skull does see a place in horticulture for these ‘Mother Nature killers’ (Hydrogen Peroxide, Chlorine, Chloramines, Colloidal Silver). You can use them to clean plastic and other materials between grows but never while the plants are growing.
* In some instances chlorine may be added to water supplies while Z7 is being used until mechanical malfunctions can be addressed. This can be done if slime is building up on surfaces even after Z7 has been added to the nutrient tank every 3 days.
Chlorine can be added when nutrient temps are over 72 degrees or if temps are expected to be over 72 degrees or dead animals/fish or rotting plants are present in the system. Dead animals and fish should be extracted from the system as soon as possible to eliminate the use of chlorine. No chemical additives other than chlorine should be used. Maintain chlorine concentrations to that of local water supplies instead of over dosing chlorine as chlorine can damage delicate roots causing root rot. Continue to add Z7 as it will continue to cleanse roots of particulate to allow proper osmotic action and oxygen transfer to occur.
In most cases Z7 can be used successfully even when temps are above 72 degrees if it is added every three days to tanks.
Side By Side Tests:
The best time to test Z7 side by side with other products is when the plants have just been transplanted from seedling or clone. This is the time when the plant is evaluating how big to make its vascular system. The better the initial osmotic transfer during seeding and young plant growth the bigger the plants vascular system will be. A few weeks will tell the tale and make believers of the most skeptical grower. Use Z7 with all watering possible.
