During medical marijuana’s blooming stage there are a number of hormonal and physical changes happening to the plant. Some of these changes can be triggered and/or enhanced with the use of high phosphorus and high potassium fertilizers.
Phosphorus has long been linked with the hormones responsible for the onset of flower sites. Phosphorus is also used during the flower building process. Potassium has long been associated with bountiful yields and overall plant health. So it makes sense that fertilizer manufacturers are combining phosphorus and potassium to create the perfect mid- to late-week flower enhancer. It is at this time that increased phosphorus and potassium will contribute to the increase in flower size and aroma.
Beastie Bloomz by Fox Farm is a 0-50-30 NPK fertilizer additive. Besides the concentrated phosphorus and potassium, Beastie Bloomz also includes kelp and a variety of micronutrients like zinc, copper, iron, and manganese. As Fox Farm claims “This isn’t your grandmother’s plant food!” They designed this product specifically for growers that want to take their gardens to the next level.
Beastie Bloomz is completely soluble, which makes it a great choice for soil or hydroponic gardens. For any super concentrated PK formula like Beastie Blooms, I recommend a low dosage to start with — 1/4-1/2 tsp per gallon for soil gardens and 1/8-1/4 tsp per gallon for hydroponic systems. Beastie Bloomz should be applied during the middle and final weeks of flowering. For an eight week medical marijuana variety, I would use Beastie Bloomz from weeks 4-7.
