Nutrients

  • Purpinator may be used on all plants on all plants, but will perform best on plants that express purple pigmentation 

    Nutrients
  • If you are using a hydroponics reservoir system, it’s best to clean the reservoir as frequently as once every 3 to 5 days with a critical cleaning solution and to closely monitor for film developed along the surface. Critically clean reservoir systems are recommended

    Nutrients
  • No, Purpinator was designed to be fed as a root drench with water and is not to be sprayed onto the leaves of the plant 

    Nutrients
  • Purpinator can be used all of the way through your flush and will not leave chemical residues when used as directed

    Nutrients
  • We recommend using Purpinator in the vegetative phase to provide a stockpile of available compounds for use in flowering. If you are using Purpinator for flowering only, start adding Purpinator at the first signs of flowering site development or when you change light cycles 

    Nutrients
  • Yes, but it is not necessary. Purpinator has the same terpene and trichome benefits as Terpinator, with the added benefit of improving purple coloration in genetically capable strains. Use Purpinator for purple plants, Terpinator for everything else

    Nutrients
  • No, Terpinator is not organic

    Nutrients
  • No, Terpinator does not contain these inputs. Triacontanol supplements can be used alongside Terpinator if they are part of your feed regimen.

    Nutrients
  • Terpinator does not contain Plant Growth Regulators (PGRs).

    Nutrients
  • Terpinator will remain stable for two years when sealed and stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. We recommend using Terpinator within one year of opening. Do not store in areas with average temperatures below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Do not freeze. 

    Nutrients
  • No, Terpinator is pH neutral.

    Nutrients
  • Properly stored (cool environment, out of sunlight, sealed container) they should last indefinitely.

    Nutrients
  • Properly stored (cool environment, out of sunlight, sealed container) the FloraNova series should last up to one year without any problems.

    Nutrients
  • Yes and no. The Maxi Series is designed to use one part at a time, but in a time of transition it may be beneficial to mix the two at half strength each (makes a full strength nutrient solution). Use MaxiGro in the vegetative stage and MaxiBloom in the fruiting/flowering stage.

    Note: If your plant is not a fruiting or flowering plant, MaxiGro is all that you will need to use.

    For further information, refer to our Maxi Series feed chart.

    Nutrients
  • Yes and no. The FloraNova series is designed to use one part at a time, but in a time of transition it may be beneficial to mix the two at half strength each (makes a full strength nutrient solution). Use FloraNova Grow in the vegetative stage and FloraNova Bloom in the fruiting/flowering stage.

    Note: If your plant is not fruiting or flowering plant, FloraNova Grow is all that you will need to use.

    For further information, refer to our FloraNova feed chart.

    Nutrients
  • Of course. Make sure you use a weaker nutrient solution than you would for root feeding. Avoid foliar feeding in the heat of the day and under excessive sunlight. Generally, the best times to foliar feed are in the early morning and late afternoon. Make sure you spray the undersides of the leaves. This is where the stomata or “lungs of the plant” are located, and where maximum absorption occurs.

    Nutrients
  • Absolutely! All of our nutrient blends contain the necessary elements for plant growth. Start with the formula ratios identified on the label for the specific plant or crop you are growing, and then adjust and experiment until you find the right formula for your specific need.

    For further information, refer to our feed charts.

    Nutrients
  • Only crops grown from unrefined minerals are recognized as “organic”. The trouble is unrefined minerals do not dissolve well for hydroponic use and some of these unrefined minerals contain quantities of impurities, some of which are toxic to plants. For that reason, FloraBloom, FloraGro, and FloraMicro are made from high quality refined minerals. This ensures high quality crop production, but prevents the crop from being considered “organic”.

    Nutrients
  • FloraNova Grow and Bloom contain 3-5% organic substances fora hybrid of mineral and organic gardening.

    Nutrients
  • No, Dry KoolBloom works on the premise that the plant is shocked into mass flowering. Shocking the plant too much can cause rotting, bloom loss and in extreme cases plant death.

    Nutrients
  • KoolBloom can safely be used three to four weeks before the end of the plants life cycle. Use only the recommended dose of 1/4 tsp per gallon (1.5 g / gallon). This will increase the ppm by approximately 200 ppm (0.4 mS).

    For further information, refer to the feed charts for your GH program.

    Nutrients
  • The concept behind Flora Series is simple: Different kinds of plants have significantly different nutrient needs, and these needs change during each plant’s growth cycle. By using different combinations of FloraGro, FloraBloom and FloraMicro, the grower is able to fulfill the exact needs of the plant at each stage in the plant’s life cycle. As the crop grows, the grower is able to precisely adapt the nutrient formulation to meet the crops changing needs.

    Nutrients
  • Use a less aggressive nutrient strength in the range of 1000-1200 ppm (2-2.4 mS) before adding the KoolBloom.

    Nutrients
  • In hydroponics, the plant roots are constantly provided with all the water, oxygen and nutrients they need. The challenge for the grower is to keep up with the plants needs, and to avoid damaging it with either excesses or deficiencies of minerals. As a general rule, a plant consumes more nitrogen during the formative or vegetative stage, and more phosphorus, potassium and magnesium as it flowers.

    Throughout its growth cycle, the plant will also consume calcium, sulfur and micro nutrients such as iron, manganese, boron, molybdenum and copper.

    FloraMicro, the foundation or “building block” of the Flora Series system, provides nitrogen and calcium as well as trace minerals, which are essential for a comprehensive hydroponic plant diet. By adding FloraGro to FloraMicro, the plant will receive additional nitrogen and potassium, which stimulates structural and foliar growth. To stimulate flower and fruit development, FloraBloom is added to provide the necessary phosphorus, potassium, magnesium and sulfur.
