sunlight in a bottle a proprietary blend of fermented plant and seaweed extracts synergy bloom/growth enhancer provides plants with natural hormones amino acids betaines humates enzymes and a complex of metabolic precursors to produce rapid cell division stimulate bloom break enhance cell differentiation and improve vascular development synergy increases the rate of photosynthesis and provides induced systemic resistance omri certified organic sbge400 synergy bloom/growth enhancer 16 oz 21.95 sbge405 synergy bloom/growth enhancer qt 40.95 sbge410 synergy bloom/growth enhancer gal 155.95 for tide-y returns the naturally chelated micronutrients in bio-genesis premium series high tide organic seaweed 0-0-4.5 enhance plant fruit and flower quality by stimulating root growth and boosting plant resistance to pests disease and other stresses containing six percent humic acids derived from the seaweed high tide organic seaweed is safe for use in hydroponics systems and as a foliar feed htos405 high tide organic seaweed qt 21.95 htos410 high tide organic seaweed gal 57.95 fertilizers amendments the matrix has you organic mineral matrix micronutrient supplement is formulated to correct deficiencies in all crops grown in hydroponics and soil-based systems mineral matrix micronutrient is chelated with citric acid for stability and improved nutrient uptake safe and natural the non-phytotoxic formula is also highly effective as a foliar spray mmm400 mineral matrix micronutrient pt 10.95 mmm405 mineral matrix micronutrient qt 14.95 mmm410 mineral matrix micronutrient gal 31.95 from boron to zinc what your plants need and why because plants need nitrogen phosphorus and potassium in large amounts these elements are known as primary macronutrients plants require smaller amounts of the secondary macronutrients sulfur calcium and magnesium iron manganese zinc copper chlorine boron and molybdenum are still essential for growth but are required in even smaller amounts they are often referred to as micronutrients or trace elements each of these macro and micronutrients serves specific purposes for our plants and for plants grown hydroponically it s entirely up to us to make sure we supply them nitrogen n nitrogen is always listed first in the fertilizer grade or n-p-k ratio on nutrient product bags boxes and bottles because it is one of the biggies for example if the ratio on your nutrient package reads 11-133 that means it contains 11 percent nitrogen plants use nitrogen to produce new green growth phosphorus p phosphorus is listed second in the n-p-k ratio that nutrient package with the 11-13-3 ratio contains 13 percent phosphorus phosphorus is essential to plant fruiting and flowering because it promotes root growth when you supplement the amount of phosphorus your flowering plants get you ll likely notice more blooms and more vigorous growth overall potassium k potassium takes up the last spot in the n-p-k ratio so an 11-13-3 nutrient ratio contains 3 percent potassium because plants use potassium to build cells and tissue supplementing this nutrient contributes to overall plant hardiness stronger more durable plants are usually more tolerant of temperature extremes and are more pest and disease-resistant sulfur s one of the secondary macronutrients sulfur helps plants maintain their dark green color mainly plants use sulfur to create essential proteins calcium ca as with sulfur plants also need calcium to make proteins calcium promotes new root growth and facilitates overall plant vigor magnesium mg even though it s classified as a secondary macronutrient magnesium is still critical for growth without magnesium plants can t use light to make food plants also need magnesium to be able to take in their other essential nutrients and to make seeds iron fe iron makes for healthy dark green growth as with magnesium iron is essential for photosynthesis plants must have iron in order to produce chlorophyll manganese mn in short manganese makes things happen manganese is necessary for chlorophyll formation and without it plants wouldn t be able to carry out essential cellular functions copper cu copper contributes to many natural processes including plant metabolism and reproduction zinc zn plants use zinc in conjunction with other elements to carry out many natural processes including forming chlorophyll boron b plants don t need much of it but boron does facilitate nutrient uptake and it helps plants to grow new tissue molybdenum mo plants need molybdenum to produce essential proteins 91 www.wormsway.com
