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 plant’s 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, copper and zinc.
FloraMicro®, the foundation or “building block” of the FloraSeries system, provides nitrogen, calcium, micronutrients and trace minerals, which are essential for a comprehensive hydroponic plant diet. By adding FloraGro® to FloraMicro, the plant will receive additional nitrogen and potassium, stimulating structural and foliar growth. To stimulate flower and fruit development, FloraBloom® is added to provide the necessary phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, and sulfur.
