Yo, what’s good fam? It’s your boy Dan and today we’re gonna talk about something that every aspiring ganja grower wants – big buds. But let’s be real, not everyone knows how to achieve that. That’s why I’m here to teach you how to properly use bloom boosters to make sure you get a record-breaking harvest of trichome-packed marijuana flowers.
First things first, let me tell you that bloom boosters are concentrated nutrients, specifically P and K. They come in liquid or powdered form but always remember that they’re concentrated so a little goes a long way. Phosphorus and potassium play crucial roles during the flowering process of cannabis plants. Alongside nitrogen, P and K stimulate the flowering response dramatically which results in an increased overall yield, resin density, cannabinoid and terpene content.
Now, I know some of y’all might be thinking that bloom boosters can harm your weed crop if given the incorrect dose. Too much of a good thing is always bad, right? If you provide too much bloom nutrient, your cannabis may become burned (nutrient toxicity) or stunted (slowed growth). In both cases, a reduced yield and a significant drop in plant health is the outcome. Sudden death is also a possibility in some extreme cases of overfeeding with PK boosters.
But don’t worry fam, I got you covered. I’m here to teach you how to use bud boosters without burning your weed crop. The best time to use them is during weeks 2, 3, and 4 of the flowering stage. Giving bloom-boosting nutrients during the early half of flowering will stimulate a significant bloom response that snowballs into a bumper-busting harvest by the end of the flowering process. Just make sure to follow the product’s directions for dosage and timing.
So, how much bloom booster nutrient should you really use? Well, it depends on the brand that you choose. Each bloom booster nutrient instructions vary but make sure to follow them. It’s always a great idea to practice a bit of prudence when using ultra-concentrated bud boosters. Start with half of the recommended dosage and monitor your pot plants. Once you feel comfortable and your cannabis plants do not exhibit nutrient toxicity signs (burning) — you may use the recommended dose on the brand’s instructions.
Now, let’s talk about how to apply your bloom boosters. First things first, ensure that it’s the correct time to apply bloom boosters and that your cannabis plants are healthy. If the bloom fertilizer instructions say that you must begin the regimen during week 2 — make sure it’s the second week of flowering! Read the instructions to determine the serving size and make sure to mix it properly. Measure the pH and nutrient content before feeding your cannabis plants with the solution.
Once you’ve completed the bud enhancer regimen — it’s time to kick back, relax, and watch the buds stack. The result of a correctly applied bloom booster is a lot of top-shelf buds. Just make sure to monitor your plants regularly and adjust the dosage if needed.
Overall, using bloom boosters can be a great tool to increase your overall yield but always remember that too much of a good thing is bad. Make sure to follow instructions, monitor your plants regularly, and adjust accordingly. Happy growing y’all!
