The O.G. 3-Part Hydroponic-Based Nutrient System

More than 40 years ago, when the other guys were still in grade school, our scientists were hard at work with a mission: to give growers a consistent and precise way to feed their plants through every growth phase. First formulated in 1976, Flora Series is the original 3-part hydroponic-based nutrient system consisting of FloraGro®, FloraBloom® and FloraMicro®. Good things really do come in threes.

Plant Nutrition for Every Growth Stage

By using different combinations of FloraGro®, FloraBloom® and FloraMicro®, you can help fulfill your plants’ nutrient needs at every stage of growth in all kinds of environments, for happy plants from seed to bloom. Adjust how much and when you use each to create your own personal recipes. Then grow knowing your nutrients are optimized to deliver the primary, secondary and micronutrients that push serious growth and brag-worthy blooms all season long.

Beautifully Balanced for Big Growth

Flora Series is formulated to help feed the right minerals, in the right ratios, to help plants flourish. Each formula is carefully proportioned for balanced nutrition. Too much or not enough of a particular element in a plant’s diet can lead to deficiencies and toxicities. We work to ensure Flora Series provides proper balance by batch-testing our products in a state-of-the-art lab with tight quality control.

FAQs

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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”.

  • Always start with a reservoir filled with water, then add the concentrated nutrients one by one.

    Never mix the nutrients together in their concentrated form, as this will cause nutrient “lock-out” making some minerals unavailable. It is best to begin by adding FloraMicro, stirring well, and then adding FloraGro and/or FloraBloom. If both FloraGro and FloraBloom are used, add one, stir well, then add the other.

  • The proper ratio of each Flora Series nutrient depends on the crop and the stage of growth (look on the label for specific recommendations for different crops). However, as a rule of thumb we use the “1-2-3” ratio:

    • For seeds, cuttings, or delicate seedlings use 1/4 tsp. of each nutrient to 1 gallon water
    • For the vegetative stage of growth use 3 tsp. FloraGro to 2 tsp. FloraMicro to 1 tsp. FloraBloom to 1 gallon water
    • For late vegetative to pre-bloom stage use 2 tsp. of each nutrient to 1 gallon water
    • For bloom initiation to ripening stage use 1 tsp. FloraGro to 2 tsp. FloraMicro to 3 tsp. FloraBloom to 1 gallon water.
  • 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.
