Bloom Booster – The Truth about the Ingredients of this Powerful Hydroponic Supplement

Before your plants enter into the flowering stage, you need to take the necessary steps towards ensuring that they receive everything that they need to create large, heavy blooms.

One of the best ways of doing this is by adding a quality bloom booster to your hydroponic system. But before you do, it is imperative that you educate yourself on the ingredients in this hydroponic product so that you properly understand how it works.

Phosphorus and Potassium – Every hydroponics grower knows that the three most important nutrients to their plants are Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium or NPK. While nitrogen is important during all stages of growth, the place where it has the most benefit is vegetative stage.

If you are truly interested in helping your plants create the biggest flowers and most impressive blooms, you need to make certain to give it adequate supplies of phosphorus and potassium during the flowering stage of growth. A good, constant stream of these nutrients has been shown to increase the metabolism of plants, which can speed plant cell division in a way that helps create bigger buds.

Amino Acids – Amino acids have several functions in plants. Like in humans, they are essential to helping growth. But not just any amino acids can function as well as a bloom booster. Specifically, plants only benefit from the “L” amino acids, such as L-Glycine and L-Phenylalanine. L- Cysteine, for example has been shown to help your plant store and transport reduced sulphur, synthesize proteins and help regulate enzymes in your plant. All of these affects can help stimulate superior bud growth, which leads to bigger, heavier flowers.

Carbohydrates – Plants make their own carbohydrates through photosynthesis but that doesn’t mean that they won’t benefit from an extra boost of carbs designed specifically for plants. In particular, they can benefit from the carbohydrates ascorbic and citric acid.

These carbohydrates can help catalyze growth a rate that isn’t as likely with the carbohydrates that your plant normally produces. They also serve as antioxidants, which can help clear your plants of toxins and make plant cells expand, thus helping them much more able to absorb nutrients and moisture.

Humates – To top it all off, some bloom boosters contain humates, such as humic or fulvic acid to ensure that all of the nutrients in your nutrient solution are absorbed properly. One of the things that humates do to your roots is make them much more permeable, which can make the other ingredients in the root booster affect the flowering stage of development of your plants in a much more profound way.

Some bloom boosters use only high concentrations of phosphorus and potassium to achieve their effect. Others use all of the elements listed above. Many hydroponics growers choose to use these two kinds of bloom boosters together, in order to get the absolute most benefit out of each. This can be done very effectively, but first you must educate yourself on the best ways to combine these kind of hydroponic supplements.

Over time, components within the nutrients settle on the bottom of the bottle. When you pour a bottle without shaking it, you can potentially be pouring out an unbalanced solution. Shaking up the nutrient bottle ensures you are pouring the right blend into your reservoir, giving your crops the nutrition they need.

Usually, it’s not a problem. But some products are incompatible with each other and can damage your plants when they’re used together. For example, bloom boosters with high PK numbers or low-grade silica products can destabilize your nutrient mix and cause nutrient lockout.

Nutrient manufacturers design their products to be used with each other. In doing so, they include specific portions of each nutrient in each product, so crops receive the right nutrition through each stage of the grow cycle. When you stick with one manufacturer, you don’t have to worry about inadvertently destabilizing your nutrient mixture. One example of why you need to stick with only one manufacturer’s products is Advanced Nutrients’ pH Perfect line. These products are designed to keep your crops’ root zone within a specific pH range. When you use them alongside products from another manufacturer, we can’t guarantee your root zone will maintain its optimal pH level.
