What Makes Flowering Enhancers Work So Well?

Anyone that has used a flowering enhancer from a reputable company can tell you how potent these products can be. They can increase the size and weight of flowers, increase the number of flowers per plant, and even improve the quality, aroma, and color of flowers. Many people that reap the rewards of these kinds of hydroponics products become curious as to what it is exactly that they give their plants to produce such huge advantages over those that don’t use flowering enhancers. It isn’t really anything nefarious or diabolical. Typically, it is simply a combination of nutrients and resources that make these nutrients more available to the plant that help harvest time become a much happier time for the grower. Here is what you typically find the highest quality flowering enhancers.

Amino Acids – Amino acids help synthesize proteins, which make up the building blocks of your plant. In plants, the only amino acids that are used are ‘L’ amino acids, so most flowering enhancers come packed with them. As a bonus, these amino acids can help support cultures of beneficial bacteria in your nutrient solution. So you can benefit doubly by using a product that contains beneficial bacteria to your nutrient solution along with flowering enhancer.

Carbohydrates – Just like in humans and other animals, plants need carbohydrates in order to gain enough energy to grow. As you already probably know, plants produce their own carbohydrates through photosynthesis. But did you know that if you supply an extra source of carbohydrates, like the kind you can get from a good flowering enhancer, you can actually help your plant grow up much stronger and healthier, leading to bigger and more numerous flowers. All of these nutrients would be worthless if your plant didn’t have the resources that allowed them to process them efficiently. That’s why most good flowering enhancers come with citric and ascorbic acids. Citric acid helps improve cellular respiration and can even improve your plants’ ability to turn sugar into energy.

Fulvic Acid – Most hydroponic growers want to enjoy all the benefits of soil without suffering any the frustrations that are associated with soil growing. Fulvic acid, which is included in some flowering enhancers, works towards that goal by helping nutrients be more available to the plant. Even if you have a perfectly balanced nutrient solution, it doesn’t help if they aren’t “chelated” properly. Fulvic acids takes all of your nutrients and turns them into substances that are much more “bio available,” significantly increasing uptake.

Extra Minerals and Nutrients – With all of these factors increasing the metabolism of your plants, you are going to need to add extra nutrients to ensure that your plant is getting the most productive environment. That’s why flowering enhancers come with an extra boost of nutrients. More importantly, they come with sulfur, phosphorus, and potassium. These nutrients are essential to getting the biggest, healthiest flowers possible. They are typically balanced well enough to work in unison with the other ingredients in the flowering enhancer.

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.
