Welcome to article three of the Advanced Nutrients Cannabis Life Cycle series. Today we’re going to run you through the mid-flowering stage, which is when things start to get really exciting.
Now, mid bloom typically runs from weeks three to five of your overall bloom cycle, comprising three weeks in total. However, different strains require different mid bloom run times. So you can extend or contract this phase depending on your genetics and personal preference.
By this point in the cannabis blooming cycle…
Your Plants Are Ready to Pack On Some Serious Flower Weight
And mid bloom is when you have the greatest opportunity to grow HUGE buds.
Remember, your plants are still in their reproductive cycle…
And flowers (or buds) are what your female plants would typically use to create the next generation of cannabis.
Understandably then, they have a biological need to produce as much flower as possible… And you’re going to help fulfill that need.
Now, to get the most from this phase, you’re going to follow the pH Perfect® Connoisseur® Master Recipe.
And you’re going to feed your plants Advanced Nutrients – the only complete cannabis growing system of fertilizers and additives that optimizes all phases of your plants’ development from seed to senescence, helping bring your crops to their true genetic potential.
Now, let’s take a look at…
The Best Nutrients to Use During the Cannabis Blooming Cycle
Just as you did in early bloom, you’re going to carry on feeding your plants pH Perfect® Connoisseur® Bloom A+B — providing all the foundational building blocks your flowering plants need.
You’ll also continue running Bud Factor X® to coax maximum production of terpenoids, cannabinoids, resins, and essential oils.
And you’ll keep running Rhino Skin®, providing silica to your crop so you can build strong plants that can support the kind of bud weight you’ll be packing on. What’s more, instead of struggling to hold themselves up, the addition of silica enables your plants to utilize their energy fueling bigger buds instead.
Now, these first three fertilizers additives have some of the best nutrients for flowering cannabis.
But to ramp up cannabinoid production, terpenes, and bud weight, you’re also going to…
Re-Introduce Two Veg Stage Staples and Keep Running These Two Cannabis Bloom Boosters
During the mid-flowering stage, you’re going to bring back B-52®, which you last used during the vegetative stage.
With its Kelp, B-vitamin complex, and humic acid, B-52 will support your expanding root zone to ensure optimal nutrient uptake, and defend your crop against abiotic stresses so they can maintain peak performance throughout mid bloom.
Next, you’re going to introduce Nirvana®, also known as BigMike’s Tasty Terps. This unique yield booster is loaded with pre-digested whey protein, bat guano, a surfactant, and other all natural ingredients to maximize flavor, aroma, bud size, and overall quality.
And of course, you’ll keep running Big Bud®, the world’s #1 cannabis bloom booster. With the optimal PK ratio and a full range of amino acids, Big Bud is ESSENTIAL throughout the entire cannabis blooming cycle. It tends to enhance flower size and growth during every phase, and usually results in significant gains to yield.
You’re also going to run Sensizym, that wonderful mix of key enzymes that process dead root material, keep your root zone healthy, and help your plants better absorb nutrients.
You’re going to keep running Bud Candy®, with its five forms of beneficial carbohydrates serving as a starting point to terpene production, providing fuel to keep up with the demands of flowering, and feeding the microbial colonies that have been assisting with nutrient uptake throughout your run.
Put this feed chart to work for your mid bloom phase, and watch your flowers sprout and develop buds that hint at the huge terpene and cannabinoid-rich buds you’ll be harvesting in just a few weeks.
Our veteran grow experts are available 24/7 Monday through Friday to help bring your cannabis to its true genetic potential.
And stay tuned for the final article for the final stage of your plants’ development, which will take you right up to harvest.
