How to use our Bio Feeding
BioGrow - BioBloom
BioGrow and BioBloom need to be mixed into the substrate or applied as top dressing.
It can be used in soil, coco or similar substrates.
The nutrients will be released constantly during a period of 8 weeks.
|Vegetative growth:||12 - 18g/Gal substrate|
|Mother plants:||8 - 12g/Gal substrate every two months (as top dressing)|
If the growth period is less than 8 weeks or the substrate is pre-fertilized, doses should be decreased. Use half dosage for seedlings and young plants (2 - 3 weeks old).
If the growth period is longer, a second application is required (as top dressing).
|8 weeks flowering period:||1st week = 12 - 18g/Gal substrat|
|10 weeks flowering period:||1st week = 8 - 12g/Gal substrat|
|3rd week = 4 - 5g/Gal substrate|
|12 weeks flowering period:||1st week = 12 - 18g/Gal substrate|
|5th week = 4 - 5g/Gal substrate|
Dosage recommendations can be decreased for light feeder plants and pre-fertilized soil
or increased for heavy feeders.
Mix BioEnhancer with water and apply to the plants when watering, once every two weeks.
Can be used during the whole cycle (vegetative growth and flowering).
Use the Enhancer after transplant for better root development.
Use within 24 hours after mixing!
Adding the Enhancer to water will increase the pH-value to around 8.5.
When using as foliar spray or as a drench on soil it is not necessary to adjust the pH down.
When using as a drench for coco, we recommend to adjust the pH before adding Enhancer to 5.0.
2 - 4g per US Gallon water every two weeks.
Soak/drench the medium with 1 - 3g per US Gallon water before placing the cutting.
Soak the seeds in a solution with 2 - 3g per US Gallon water for 8 - 12 hours.
Mix 3 - 5g with 2.5 US Gallon water and apply once every two weeks during vegetative stage.
A second application of BioBloom is only necessary for plants with a long flowering time.
How to use our Mineral Feeding
The life cycle of a plant can be divided in two main stages, the vegetative growth period andthe flowering period.
Both stages can be subclassified into different stages with different needs.
VEGETATIVE GROWTH PHASE:
1.) Seedling stage (< 6”)
2.) Young plant & rooted cuttings (6-10”)
3.) Maturing plant (10-14”)
4.) Mature plant (>14”)
1.) Pre-flowering / Transition to flowering (week 1-3)
2.) Flower formation and growth (week 3-6)
3.) Ripening of flowers (week 7+)
| The values in the following tables are calculated using water with EC 0.0
The pH value may decrease depending on water quality and temperatures.
When adding Calcium the PH values may increase depending on water quality and temperatures
Do not use CalMag with our mineral line. Calcium Nitrate is partly incompatible with Monopotassium Phosphate and Magnesium Sulfate and may result in formation of gypsum, clogging pipes or creating deficiencies
Our mineral plant nutrients do not contain calcium, which means that if you use very soft water, rainwater or osmotic water, calcium needs to be added
Keep the nutrient solution between 65 - 72 degrees F
Control the EC of the runoff and flush if it’s higher than EC 2.5 (1250ppm)
For best results maintain a pH value between:
> Soil: 6.0-6.5
> Hydro/Coco: 5.8-6.2 >
> Rockwool: 5.5-6.0
