Creating your own feeding schedule can be a troublesome experience for many growers. Fortunately, it can be avoided by opting for complete nutrient packages that include everything a plant needs from its seedling stage to harvest. These packages include products such as bloom boosters, growth enhancers, root stimulants, Cal-Mag, and numerous other supplements and additives that enhance plant growth.

What are a plant’s nutritional requirements?

Plants primarily need macro and micronutrients. Macronutrients make up the plant’s fertilizer and feeding schedule, ensuring the plant’s healthy growth. These are generally given in higher doses. The essential macronutrients are nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, which make up the NPK ratio (a term you will find written on fertilizer packaging). Some other macronutrients include carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen.

 

On the other hand, micronutrients are needed in relatively smaller doses and help plants perform other essential functions. Many nutrient packages do not include sufficient quantities of micronutrients, which is why growers need to supplement with them. Some essential micronutrients include boron, zinc, chlorine, copper, iron, and magnesium.

Plant growth and nutrients

Plants need different NPK ratios at various stages of their lifecycle. These macronutrients are essential for plant growth, and their importance should not be overlooked. For instance, nitrogen increases foliage growth, making it useful for plants during their veg stage. This means that you should look for fertilizers with a high nitrogen ratio for your plants during the vegetative stage. Similarly, phosphorus is ideal for the flowering stage, whereas potassium supports a plant’s overall health during its entire lifecycle.

 

You should always factor in the type of your grow operation before you decide to buy a nutrient package. There are specific packages for all kinds of functions. At Groindoor.com, we have soil nutrient packages for plants grown in soil and hydroponic nutrient packages for hydroponic grow operations.

 

These packages contain very subtle differences, primarily in terms of nutrient ratios, and if chosen and used correctly, they can end up affecting your plant health, growth, and yield significantly.

 

If you are someone who is very wary of their carbon footprint, you should go for organic nutrient packages. These have all the vital nutrients that organic plants need for healthy growth.
