Advanced Hydroponics of Holland Bloom 2 – 10 Litres
- Bloom Feed
- Optimum growth
- Superior flower quality
- Rich and balanced nutrition
- Suitable for all medium
- Use as part of Advanced Hydroponics feeding programme
This Advanced Hydroponics of holland Bloom is part 2 of a 3 stage nutrient combination. The solution ensures your plants receive the correct nutrient balance during the flowering stage. You will see best results when used together with part 1 for the vegetative stage and part 3 for late flowering.
This can be used in hydro or other growing medium such as soil.
Use in varying amounts throughout plant cycle:
- Use 1ml per litre in growth phase
- 2ml per litre in initial flowering phase
- 3ml per litre in late flower.
For hydroponic applications adjust the pH value to 5.8
For other potting composts adjust the pH value to 6.2
For growing media with fertilisers use a weaker concentration for the first 3 weeks.
Feeding Plants for Different Stages of Growth
As tricky as providing the right nutrition for soil-based plants can be, the process is more challenging with a hydroponic garden. A hydroponic set-up is a simulated environment where nutrient recipes have to be water-soluble, complete and stable. In other words, almost everything hydroponic plants need to flourish has to be provided artificially in a water-soluble form. Plants need different nutrients at different stages of growth. They may also have special requirements depending on the nature of their native soils or the demands of their unique features and characteristics. This might sound complicated, but most nutrient manufacturers have done the hard work for you by developing complete products that address the general needs of most plants. They also sell special formulas optimized for different stages of growth and to meet the unique needs of specific types of plants, like tomatoes or orchids, for instance. These formulas can include enhancements that encourage specific desirable characteristics like improved flavor, better color or a stronger scent. Hydroponic nutrient formulas are proprietary, but the recipes conform to our general understanding of when, how and how much of a particular nutrient a plant will need as it matures. For example, let’s look at the macronutrients nitrogen and phosphorus. Plants require both of these nutrients to perform essential functions throughout their lives. They’re always important, but during leaf development, nitrogen demand increases dramatically, and phosphorus is particularly useful during bud growth, flowering and seed development. The optimal ratios vary. You’ll see this on soil fertilizers, where the first two numbers on the front of the bag will change depending on their nitrogen and phosphorus content by weight. Plants also use these macronutrients in combination. Among its many roles, phosphorus helps plant roots absorb nitrogen more effectively. This kind of interdependence isn’t uncommon, and isn’t limited to the plant world, either. In the human body, vitamin D and magnesium aid in calcium absorption and retention.
In 1993, Jay Jackson, founder and current Director of Advanced Hydroponics of Holland, was committed to finding an alternative to the then available fertilizers that he and many other growers had been using. Jay searched for a formula that would combine: easy use, high efficiency, and competitive pricing. In order to obtain the solution, Jay went to the experts at the “Dutch Flower Nutrient Research Center” in the Dutch city of Aalsmeer. To make the use as simple as possible, it was necessary to present the components in a way that allows easy mixing, so that any grower can easily adjust the volumes of the most necessary nutrients according to their needs. So, Dutch Formula was born! It is a liquid fertilizer consisting of three components which are to be mixed in an easy ratio of: 2:1:1 in the growing period, 1:2:1 in the pre-flowering period, and finally 0:3:1 in the period of full bloom. At first, the fertilizers were tested by Jay together with many of his fellow growers. The results were OUTSTANDING ! These results were not possible with the former fertilizers. Once perfected, the retail shop was started. In 1996, the Dutch Formula was presented at a trade show in Germany and the superior quality of Dutch Formula fertilizers together with growing demand led to the start of the wholesale business throughout all of Europe.
The Dutch Formula line was soon expanded by a 100% all natural line of “Natural Power” which included a “Root Stimulator”, enzymatic supplement called “Enzymes”, a GrowthBloom Stimulator called “Excellerator”, and finally a product for maturing called “Final”. Following “Natural Power”, the popular “Aqua system” made it’s way to the Wholesale and Distributor line up.
Currently, more than 60 distributors in 22 countries around the world (including Russia and Japan) are supplying the Advanced Hydroponics of Holland products, and the number of distributors and retail shops continues to grow. Around the world, tens of thousands of growers, including the world renown Howard Marks (Mr. Nice) R.I.P. as well as Scott Blakie (Shantibaba) using Dutch Formula and Natural Power products. Plants grown with the help of our fertilizers.
Even considering the great success of our fertilizers, our company continues to strive for further improvements and new products in close cooperation with Dr. Nicolas Stutterheim, Ph.D., a biochemist and renowned European specialist on plant nutrition.
