Lotus nutrients were formulated for use in any medium, but they shine in hydroponic setups! The non-diluted, water-less nutrients come totally dry. That means they're concentrated, and specifically meant to be added to water by growers.
This allows for easier PH adjusting–as there's no water to correct for. This helps prevent nutrient lockout due to water that's too basic or too acidic for your cannabis to thrive. With your ph testing equipment, and a good check of the water before mixing Lotus Nutrients in, you'll be good to grow without the need to continue correcting at several stages.
The dry nature of these nutrients also makes them much more easy to measure! There's no splashing, no meniscus messing with your eyes as you squint over a measuring cup, and less risk of nutrient lockout through overindulging your grow by accident. Measure twice, dissolve once!
Lotus Nutrients aren't the only dry nutrients on the market. But there's an extra step that our Nor-Cal developers took. The texture of our nutrients is like brown sugar–clumpy, but soft and uniform. Other dry nutrients look like different grades of sand mixed together. That texture is great for a trip to the beach, but in hydroponic applications, it's a serious problem. Bigger particles of certain nutrients in the mix means that they don't all dissolve at the same time. That makes it easier to miss a trick when adding to water, and adding burning chunks these usually-helpful nutrients directly to your plants roots. This isn't what's normally meant by "nutrient burn", but it is a serious problem! That's why Lotus Nutrients chose to take the extra step, grind a little harder (literally), and get all the elements evened out before they reach growers' hands.
Nutrient lockout, the halting of absorption of nutrients, and nutrient burn–chemical burns on plant tissue from overapplication of nourishment are both serious issues that can kill cannabis if left unchecked. Even surviving plants can end up with permanent stunting from stress, leading to lower amounts of flower, and lower quality harvests. Lotus Nutrients make it easier to skip this harsh lesson with our plant-first formulas, nutrient calculator, and seven days a week helpline of growers like you!
In addition to being better for your grow, Lotus Nutrients is just plain better for the earth! The concentrated blends ship with more nutrients per ounce than watery mixes, lowering your footprint as you tend your greens!
The Lotus Nutrients line includes one set of nutrients specially formulated to provide ideal nourishment at certain points in your grow's life cycle, one specific macronutrient deficiency addressing supplement, and a nutrient neutralizer. Here's how they work.
Lotus Nutrients Grow is engineered to fire up growth of taller seedlings and clones. This formula strengthens stems, by providing the nourishment that makes thicker xylem and phloem–allowing greater rates of nutrient transfer. It encourages thicker, healthier roots to spread–even though not through soil–which aids in water and nutrient intake. The cell-wall enhancing elements also make the entire plant more resilient to plant-to-plant disease, and put a spring in the leaves and stalks. They'll retain bounce, and elasticity–getting them to grow without brittleness or deflation.
Lotus Nutrients Bloom is nourishment for the flowering stage of cannabis. In this stage, your cannabis is expanding into maturity, and looking to reproduce! So, like any creature going through teen-to-adult transitions, it needs a higher amount of feed, with minerals aimed at facilitating the production of reproductive faculties.When cannabis is undernourished, it's forced to halt its flower stage to attempt to save its own life. Bloom encourages the overall health of your plants while also feeding for tighter internodal spacing and a higher amount of flowering sites–heightening your harvest in quantity. Late bloomers and cramped colas are just the results of crops that aren't being fed with the best hydroponic nutrients for cannabis. Fortunately, that's an easy fix!
Lotus Nutrients Boost is the flavor enhancer of the original three-step family. Closer to the edge of the flowering stage, your cannabis is no longer focused on quantity of buds. At some point, about four weeks in, all the nodes you're going to see for the season will be present and accounted for! But that doesn't mean your plant is all done developing your future harvest–which in turn means adding nutrients to the hydroponic setup isn't complete! As the cannabis buds develop the trichomes that give us the therapeutic effects we know and love during this latest stage. Cannabidiol, THC, CBG, and terpenes don't emerge without these sticky structures–and a combination of minerals that nourishes these combinations of proteins is essential!
But that's not the only way Boost affects a grow.
This formula also encourages bigger, denser growth during the transition from Bloom! Once the nodes are healthy, in place, and the process of flowering has begun in earnest, Boost helps these structures grow to their thickest and largest–giving the trichomes it also nourishes more surface area to spread their wellness!
Flushing, whether mid grow for a 'reset' of the growing medium, or close to harvest as a preference, means getting the nutrients in your medium out of it so that your plants can feed on just water and light.With hydroponics, unlike soil, there is no 'just water and wait' option to flushing. Either all the water in the system needs to be replaced, or you can let the science behind Lotus Nutrients do what it does. Carboflsh uses compounds that truly neutralize the minerals present in your water system–making hydroponic flushes complete!
Calcium and Magnesium are two of the highest quantity macronutrients your cannabis needs to feed properly! They're found and lost in the same conditions, so if you've been using subpar plant food in your grow, and the yellowing leaves are telling you to step it up–Lotus Nutrients CalMag is here to step in.
These 'hard' minerals are by definition deficient in soft water–and if you're seeing brown splotches on your leaves, or entire leaves yellowing, a cal/mag deficiency is the likely issue. Lotus Nutrients CalMag is totally soluble, so when administered according to schedule, it won't cake your hoses, or burn your plants. It's just a step to get them back to growing as they should and beyond!
