Feeding your plants by using the proper feeding schedules is as important, if not more important, as using the proper nutrients. Following a good nutrient regime and keeping it simple will go a long way to ensure adequate uptake of all the essential nutrients.

Certain commercial products have been developed that can stimulate faster nutrient uptake and speed up stem and leaf growth. Many of these products are best left to the advanced and experienced growers. Novice hydroponics enthusiasts should approach such products like growth boosters with caution. There are also several products available on the market that claim to work as bloom fortifiers.

These formulations act to stimulate flowering and increase essential oils in plants. While selecting a bloom fortifier, the best thing to do is to select one with an NPK ratio of 0-50-30. Such fortifiers have no nitrogen and are rich in Phosphorus and Potassium. These essential minerals stimulate the formation of super blooms.
