Grow Enhancer – How to Reach that Next Stage

For hydroponic growers, it can sometimes feel frustrating having to deal with the same level of development and growth season after season. In the world of hydroponics, the goal is to always get larger plants and bigger yields. Sadly, only a small number of hydroponic growers get everything that they possibly can out of their hydroponic garden. Their garden simply reaches a point where it no longer improves or provides any larger yields. This is unfortunate, because it does not necessarily require a massive investment or years of hydroponic experience in order to get to the next developmental stage. In fact, all you really need is a little bit of know how and access to the proper grow enhancers.

If you want to see just how big the yields can get in your hydroponic garden, try some of these grow enhancers.

Immune System booster – Some of the most important grow enhancers that you will ever use do not improve growth so much as they prevent anything from stopping your plants growth. Stepping into your grow room and seeing that some sort of pathogen has caused the majority of your plants to shrink or wilt is every hydroponic gardeners nightmare. This can be easily prevented, however, with the help of an immune booster that contains salicylic acid. This hydroponics product functions much in the same way that an immunization works in people. Once your plants are exposed to this substance, they immediately put up their guard against a number of diseases that can totally ruin your gardening efforts.

Root Enhancer – A large percentage of your efforts in regards to improving yield should go into improving your roots. If the root system is not there, it surely will not matter what kind of advanced lighting that you have or what you put in your nutrient system, there is no way that you can get those huge yields.

This why one of the smartest grow enhancers that you can use is a quality root enhancer. This is a product that uses beneficial bacteria to strengthen the roots and help the nutrients in your nutrient solution be more available to your plants.

Foliar Feeding – After you have made your roots as large, healthy, and complex as they can possibly be, you still are not quite done giving your plants all of the nutrients that they need to thrive. The next important step will be to start using a quality foliar feeder. This is just a nutrient solution that you actually spray on the leaves of your plants. This will allow your plants to absorb a little extra more nutrient solution. If you do it correctly and use a good humic acid and surfactant in your foliar feeding, this can be a very potent grow enhancer.

Go Back to Basics – Long before people were developing these kind of advanced growing techniques and products in laboratories, they were finding ways to improve growth with the tools at hand. And one of the most important tools that they had are the simple pruning shears. You should work to try and remove any and all branches that are severely under performing. This acts as a grow enhancer because it allows your plant to only use your nutrient solution for the most highly producing sections. It is a time tested technique, but it really works as a grow enhancer.

Make Sure To Adjust Your Nutrient Solution – One of the biggest ways that a grow enhancer helps plants is by increasing nutrient uptake. But during the vegetative stage of growth, when the plant is able to absorb the most nutrients, this feature doesn’t help much if adequate nutrients are not in your nutrient solution to begin with. When you add your grow enhancer, you may also want to increase the concentration of nutrients in your nutrient solutions. You should increase it slowly, making an adjustment every day, so you can see what these changes will have on your plants.

If you have developed a high quality, efficient hydroponics system, and want to see exactly how big and yielding your plants can become, you would do well to invest in a quality grow enhancer. They come packed with numerous B vitamins, plant hormones, and other elements designed to increase plant growth and yield. But with all of these benefits, it is a mistake to think that a grow enhancer will work automatically, or without taking the proper care and adjustments that I have listed above. Good luck!

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.
