No. Bloomboost is actually the complement to PK boosters. Bloomboost may be added to nearly any flowering program to provide required sulfur, boron and potassium that enhances flower quality.
Yes, foliar spraying with Bloomboost for the first two weeks of flower is highly beneficial for initial flower set and development. We recommend adding Fasilitor to Bloomboost for the best results in a foliar mixture for the first two weeks of flower.
You can use BLOOMBOOST in a recirculating system but keep in mind that BLOOMBOOST will form a biofilm which increases the need for cleaning. Most APTUS growers running recirculating hydroponic systems will add BLOOMBOOST to their reservoir 1 - 2 days prior to replacing the feed water which eliminates the build-up of biofilm and additional cleaning. Alternatively, you may consider running our CLEAN Program.
Note: If you’re growing in a Deep Water Culture System DO NOT add BLOOMBOOST to the system. For DWC growers wanting to utilize BLOOMBOOST, it’s recommended as a foliar spray only for the first two weeks of flower.
You can, depending on substrate and cultivation method. If you’re growing in rockwool it’s not recommended. Similarly if your grow is operating with a fertigation system, it’s not recommended to use BLOOMBOOST for more than one (1) feed per week.
While most commercial cultivators want the benefits of using products like BLOOMBOOST or STARTBOOST, their main concern is keeping their fertigation system clean and free of biofilm. For these customers we recommend using BLOOMBOOST or STARTBOOST for one (1) feed per week only. This provides the plant with the additional stimulation desired, while ensuring the system remains clean and free of contaminants. You can use bio-stimulants in fertigation systems so long as it’s only once or twice per week. This practice will prevent the build-up of biofilm.
Absolutely! BLOOMBOOST is an excellent supplement for all species of plants, especially flowering and fruiting plants.
