Cloning Tip

Purchase yourself a bottle of sparkling mineral water for your clones. Fresh cuttings off a mother plant crave the tiny carbonated bubbles and the essential minerals. Placing your fresh cuttings in a cup of mineral water before using your cloning solution will make your clones root faster and increase survival rates. Make sure you grab the unflavored sparkling water as its pure and clean. Bubbles are a happy sound to the plants and they will soon show their approval with quick abundant roots.

Juicing With Enzymes

Organ soil and fertilizer will always be the preferred method for growing great herb, but without aid they release vital nutrients slowly, which can really be a drag on your flowering time. The only way to maximize your fertilizer the all-natural way is the same way our own bodies swiftly break down food into usable minerals – enzymes. These are protein catalysts that speed up the decomposition process in organic matter, unlocking the stored molecules it contains. Bat guano, which is packed high with phosphorus due to the bat’s insect diet, also contains powerful enzymes to break it down quickly and prevent it from accumulating on the cave floor. Together they make a potent and fast-acting flower fertilizer. Sea bird poop is a cheaper and more sustainably harvested fertilizer with active enzymes. Psidocene, an enzyme and bio stimulant derived from seaweed, helps speed the recovery of transplanted and otherwise shocked plants.
