From the variety of cannabis you have selected to the conditions in which the plant has developed, without overlooking your expertise as a grower and of course some tricks that will help you fatten The fruit of the harvest, all the details are important in obtaining the desired results. But if you really want to give your marijuana plants a key boost at a key moment in the formation of buds to obtain more productive crops, you should definitely resort to flowering stimulators. Do you already know which one is the best for your crop? We explain it to you below.
What is the bloom enhancer and when is it used?
As its name suggests, a flowering enhancer or stimulator is a type of additive that is used to thicken and harden the buds in marijuana plants. In other words, a product that makes your plants more prolific and your crops gain both in weight and in quality.
What do these types of products carry? In general, they are fertilizers based on sugars and molasses, which is what will make the flowers have a much more intense flavor since by absorbing them they will be able to generate their own natural sugars. Depending on the brand, you can find flowering stimulators of different composition, but there are basically three types:
- Biologicals: They are mild stimulants, so unlike the other types of enhancers, their use can be extended without problems throughout the flowering period.
- Biominerales: They are usually applied from the third week of flowering and apart from molasses and sugars they have an important content of potassium and phosphorus.
- Minerals or chemicals: Does it sound like you have read that PK on some label? It is what identifies this type of fertilizer that should be used very carefully between the fourth and fifth week of flowering and always monitoring the quantities if you do not want to obtain exactly the opposite effect.
Each type of crop has its moment
When using flowering stimulators, it is important to note that each type of crop has specific characteristics. Apart from the instructions and recommendations of each manufacturer, it will be very easy for you to use this type of enhancers to obtain more succulent crops if you do not lose sight of this simple scheme:
- Indoor crops: fertilizers and additives to stimulate flowering are applied between weeks 4 and 6 of cultivation.
- Outdoor crops: If you are going to use flowering enhancers, you should normally do it between August 20 and September 10.
