Advanced Nutrients Bloom Boosters For Bigger Yields
What it does: Bud Ignitor is an early-phase bloom booster fertilizer. It triggers earlier onset of flowering and helps plants produce more flowers per inch of stem. Increases the production of essential oils and flavouring compounds. Improves plants’ nutrient absorption and stress resistance.
Instructions: You apply max 2 ml of Bud Ignitor per 1 Liter of water in the first two weeks of the bloom phase.
What it does: Overdrive stimulates the plants to get as much mass into the fruits as possible just before harvest by extending the late blooming and ripening stage.
Instructions: You apply max 2 ml of Overdrive per 1 Liter of water in the last two weeks of the bloom phase.
What it does: Big Bud is a liquid PK booster that boosts flower production and overall plant health. Speeds up photosynthesis, increases plants’ ability to transform sugars into energy and help plants transfer nutrients and energy from roots to other plant parts.
Instructions: You use a max of 2 ml of Big Bud per 1 Liter of water from the second week of bloom phase up until you switch to Overdrive.
Big Bud Coco
What it does: Big Bud Coco is the Advanced Nutrients PK booster, specifically designed for growing in coco coir. This Advanced Nutrients booster gives you bigger flowers, increased harvest weight, more essential oils and aroma. It contains a specifically chelated form of iron that protects crops from nutrient deficiencies related to coco coir .
Instructions: You use a max of 2 ml of Big Bud Coco per 1 Liter of water from the second week of bloom phase up until you switch to Overdrive.
Taste Enhancers – Bud Candy
What it does: Bud Candy is a carbohydrate flower booster, the new version of Advanced Nutrients’ legacy product – Carboload. It nourishes beneficial microbes, enhances the flavour and aroma of crops, and improves the size and quality of flowers and fruits.
Instructions: Apply a maximum of 2 ml of Bud Candy mixed in 1 Liter of water during the blooming phase.
Substrate Supplements – Sensizym
What it does: Sensizym can be used to reuse growing media such as rockwool and coco coir. This Advanced Nutrients additive turns organic waste and other debris in the root zone into carbohydrates that boost yields, fuel growth and terpene production. It also prevents root rot and kills harmful fungi and insects.
Instructions: Use Sensizym at a maximum of 2 ml per Liter of water during the bloom stage.
Potency & Stalk Strengtheners
What it does: Nirvana is a bloom booster containing worm castings, kelp, alfalfa meal, krill meal, amino acids. This Advanced Nutrients additive stimulates and sustains an increased metabolic rate in crops, increases chlorophyll and helps plants use CO2 more effectively. It gives faster growth rates, stronger stalks, larger and denser blooms, larger leaves, and a bushier plant.
Instructions: Use Nirvana at a maximum of 2 ml per Liter of water starting from the third week of the blooming stage.
What it does: Rhino Skin is a potassium silicate formula that acts as an armor for crops. It strengthens them, protects them from heat, stress, pests and infections while it also increases the production of trichomes and their potency.
Instructions: Apply a maximum of 2 ml of Rhino Skin per 1 Liter of water throughout the whole bloom phase.
Bud Factor X
What it does: Bud Factor X is a resin and terpene enhancer that improves crops’ natural defense mechanisms by maximizing the production of resins, essential oils and terpenoids. This Advanced Nutrients additive also boosts crops’ size and harvest weight.
Instructions: Apply a maximum of 2 ml of Bud Factor X per 1 Liter of water throughout the blooming phase.
What it does: B-52 is a B-vitamin formula that boosts plants’ immune and metabolic systems while promoting growth with increased enzymatic activity and amino acid synthesis. It can also be used to strengthen seedlings, transplants and clones, and to shorten the veg phase for transplants.
Instructions: Apply B-52 during the vegetative phase at a maximum of 2 ml per 1 Liter of water. Continue with the same feeding ratio from the third week of the blooming phase until the week before flushing.
Advanced Nutrients Root Supplements
What it does: Tarantula is a blend of 11 strains of beneficial rhizobacteria. This beneficial bacterial inoculant increases root mass, improves nutrient uptake, increases secondary or lateral roots, and safeguards the root zone. It also increases the production of essential-oil-rich biomass in crops.
Instructions: Use Tarantula at a maximum of 2 ml per 1 Liter of water in the first two weeks of both the vegetative and flowering phases.
What it does: Piranha is a blend of 11 strains of beneficial mycorrhizal fungi. This Advanced Nutrients additive helps expand the absorptive surface area of roots, destroys harmful fungi and other pathogens, cleanses the rhizosphere. It can also be used as a foliar spray to combat powdery mildew and bud rot.
Instructions: Use Piranha at a maximum of 2 ml per 1 Liter of water in the first two weeks of both the vegetative and flowering phases.
What it does: Voodoo Juice is a root mass expander, a proprietary blend of 12 strains of beneficial rhizobacteria. It increases root mass by producing thicker roots and stems, and larger root systems. Since it increases water and nutrient absorption (and transport) none of the nutrients fed to crops will go to waste.
Instructions: Use Voodoo Juice at a maximum of 2 ml per 1 Liter of water in the first two weeks of both the vegetative and flowering phases.
