    This may be so when using the bottles stated dosage, something I’ve never done working to Ec
    It doesn’t matter what dosage the food works between ph 6-7 and will always bring it to this range once added. Used it for years in nft and coco never phd once.

    I do want to try this. But worried it will fook with the plants.
    Not saying your wrong but that would debunk all the stuff about certain elements being absorbed at certain ph.

    I know it’s very strange maybe this is why I never hit a gram per watt , but my flowers are always 10/10 regardless

    Quick on in regards to Big Bud mate, on the label it says use weeks 2 through 4 in bloom phase. Does this mean use it in weeks 2, 3 and 4 or..?

    Im planning to use Big bud in weeks 2 and 3, then PK in 4 to 7, and overdrive in 8 and 9.

    Big buds NPK value is 0-4-4 so werent sure if thatd be too soft when compared to the PK 13/14 or 9/18 depending which companys nutes you go to

    You can use this from the first sign of flower pistils mate, 2ml per litre then swap it out for your pk additive at week 4 as planned. You need a higher pk value for better results mid flower so you should be fine with 13/14 from week 4 onwards

    Cheers mate

    I know ive asked before but the 13/14 has high levels of phosphorus which isnt necessary indoors right? Which is why Buddhas Tree use a 9/18 instead

    Yes that’s right mate, the old school pk’s with almost equal parts P and K were designed for rain washout on outdoor crops. There’s better ratios out there more suited to our indoor plants

    What’s your thoughts on ionic pk boost, I am using the ionic range, been using grow/coco and now on Bloom, week 2 of flower
    Not started on the PK yet, but have a bottle and I am tempted to use.
    I am using the autopot system, can I just introduce it to the res and use Bloom to bring up to suitable EC?
    I been feeding 1.2EC of Bloom only, and plants seem happy enough.
    Base water is 0.3/4

    Ionic PK Boost (PK 14/15)
    Ionic PK Boost is the new bloom booster form Ionic. Ionic PK Boost is a higher concentration than the former Ionic Boost and is used weekly rather than every watering. Ionic PK Boost is designed to work in the flowering phase of a plant’s growth and promotes bigger yields and higher quality harvests.

    Made with mineral salts, not chemicals
    New, improved and more concentrated version of Ionic Boost
    Can be used with almost any nutrient, medium and grow-system.
    Formulated for use in a plant’s flowering/fruiting stage
    Produces bigger harvest of better quality
    Works with hard or soft water
    Perfect for use with the range of Ionic base nutrients
    Contains:
    1 bottle of Ionic PK Boost (choose your size above)

    How PK Boost Works:
    Ionic Boost is an easy-to-use flowering booster for plants grown with any of the Ionic Bloom nutrients (i.e Ionic Hydro Bloom, Ionic Coco Bloom or Ionic Soil Bloom). Ionic PK Boost helps to produce bigger harvests and to improve the quality of grown fruits and flowers. During flowering, plants need extra phosphorous and potassium (PK). Ionic PK Boost is a supplement containing extra PK and iron that plants need for heavy blooming. Ionic Boost is really simple to use but still produces very pleasing results. Ionic PK Boost can be used with almost any grow-system, substrate and nutrient except organics.

    Using PK Boost:
    Ionic PK Boost can be used for plants during the flowering/fruiting stage, grown in any substrate and grow-system. Ionic PK Boost complements any of the Ionic bloom nutrients whether it's soil, coco or hydro. Ionic recommend that Ionic PK Boost is used from the first sign of fruits/flowers through to the flush.

    For hand-fed soil and coco, use Ionic PK Boost once per week. Make up your feed water as usual using the appropriate Ionic Bloom Base nutrient. Add Ionic PK Boost at 1ml/litre to the feed water and adjust the E.C. to 1.5 (CF 15). If necessary, adjust pH.

    For hydroponics, make up your nutrient solution as normal and add Ionic PK Boost at a rate of 1ml/litre and adjust E.C. to 2.0 (CF 20). We recommend you replace your nutrient solution every week.

    Ionic PK Boost is quite a powerful flowering booster and should not be used with any other PK type boosters or at higher than the recommended rate as this will usually result in over-feeding.

    As with all nutrients, boosters and additives, never mix them together in their concentrated form (i.e. straight out of the bottle). Always add each nutrient, booster or additive to your reservoir or feed water in turn, giving the solution a good stir to mix it in before adding the next one.

    Recommended dosage: 1ml/Litre

    NPK: 0-14-15
