Buddhas Tree Coco A-B
Buddhas Tree Coco A&B is a potent fertiliser, ideal for growing in coco-coir in any modern drip system. You will find that this clean formula stops any residue or blockages forming in the irrigation system. Buddhas Tree Coco A&B contains all the essential macro and micronutrients for the entire cycle of your plants growth. Nutrient lockout has been reduced to a minimum with this product as the level of calcium needed for a correct cation exchange rate has been suitably refined.
Coco A&B does not need to separate ‘Grow’ and ‘Bloom’ nutrients. Naturally, the fibres in coco want to remove the calcium from the nutrient solution and replace it with potassium. As Coco A&B is highly concentrated, it must be split into two bottles. Calcium is available in Coco A and Phosphorus is available in Coco B. This facilitates the high concentration of nutrients without the issue of Gypsum formation.
The layer around an element, that keeps it safe until the plant needs it is called a Chelate. If you look at Iron, for example: Iron rusts when you put it in water, however it is a micronutrient that your plants regularly use and ned constantly for healthy growth. This is frustrating when your plants want to use it. The chelate then comes into play; it surrounds the iron molecule, thus protecting it from the surrounding environment, in turn this ensures it does not rust and become redundant. Buddhas Tree use only the best inputs to make sure nutrients are highly bio available, over a wide range of pH levels.
How it works
The rate of potassium release increases in the substrate as the overall EC rises when the strength of the nutrient solution is increased throughout the entire growing cycle. The maximum nutrient strength is reached during the flowering cycle. You automatically create the ideal flowering feed by simply adding water with the correct strength of nutrient. This is known as Cation Exchange.
The careful selection of nutrient salts has been formulated to ensure no other nutrient will compete with another within the solution. The availability of one nutrient is directly related to the amount of another present in the solution. Buddhas Tree perfectly compensates for this, ensuring that both macronutrients (such as Nitrogen & Phosphorous) are available, as well as crucial micronutrients (like Iron & Magnesium). Finally Coco A-B is suitable for a full pH range & all the elements require minimal energy from the plant to release.
How to use Buddhas Tree Flower Burst
You can use this hydroponic nutrient at any stage of growth. Please refer to the Buddhas Tree Feeding Schedule to track how your plants respond to the variants in environmental conditions as these will impact how much nutrient your plant uses.
After you pot your plants Coco A-B at around the half-strength rate of around 2ml per litre of water. As the plants grow, increase slowly (to avoid any unwanted nutrient-shock to the roots) up to the max rate of 4ml per litre when the plant is growing at its most vigorous & develops larger fruits & flowers.
You may need to compensate the dose depending on the additives that you choose to use alongside Coco A&B. We recommend the use of an EC Meter and frequently regulate what your plant needs. You can measure how well your plant is feeding by measuring the strength of the reservoir, compared to the strength of the run off. You will know whether you need to increase or decrease the strength of each feed by observing jumps or falls in the EC strength between the two.
Please ensure you always check the pH of the nutrient solution after adding your nutrients and additives. It is best to keep your pH within the range of 5.5 to 6.2 when using Coco. It is recommended that during the vegetative stage keep to the lower end of the scale and slowly move to the higher end when transitioning into the flowering cycle.
Buddha Tree Coco A&B is available in 1L and 5L bottles and works particularly well alongside Solar Green Power and PK 9-18 to complete the exceptional hydroponic nutrient & additives range from Buddhas Tree.
