Benefits – Flairform Bud Genie
- Specialised flowering additive for use with PK additives
- Improves trichome output, resin and essential oil content in flowering plants.
- Helps stimulate floral blooms and promote higher fruit weight.
- PGR free.
- For use in hydroponics, soil or coco
BudGenie was designed to meet the critical demands of growers wanting larger and more potent yields. Over the 2 years of final testing and commissioning, there was no other additive able to compete in terms of both volume and mass yield, flavor, cleanliness and ease-of-use. The niche ingredients used in BudGenie were proven to be uniquely stable thereby resulting in greater reliability and consistency for growers.
Dose rate 2.5ml/L (9.5ml/Gal)
Why do I need a PK booster?
PK Boosters are nutrient solutions marketed to gardeners during the flowering phase of production. A typical fertilizer will display prominently on its label the N-P-K content. The “P” represents the macro-nutrient phosphorous and the “K” represents the macro-nutrient potassium. As the name implies, PK booster provide higher amounts of phosphorous and potassium and do not provide nitrogen. Most, but not all growers would contend that nitrogen during the flowering phase will compromise the size or quality of the buds.
Potassium is one of the three primary nutrients that are essential for proper plant growth and development. It is considered a primary nutrient as plants require larger amounts of potassium (along with nitrogen and phosphorus) than any other nutrient. In plant biology, potassium is responsible for many different functions. Potassium plays a key role in the processes of photosynthesis, the creation of essential plant proteins, and the activation of plant enzymes. In addition, potassium aids in making plants more resistant to cold weather and diseases. Potassium deficiency in plants will generally hinder healthy growth. With severe potassium deficiency, plants can exhibit brown spots, brown veins, yellow edges, or yellowing veins. However, potassium deficiency in plants can be remedied by adding a potassium-based, or potassium-only fertilizer to the soil the affected plants are grown in. Many growers use potassium-rich fertilizer during the flowering or blooming stage of crop growth; these are sometimes referred to as ‘bloom boosters’.
Phosphorus is the energy element, essential to the chemistry of life. It is part of a molecule called ATP (adenosine tri-phosphate) that serves as the energy currency of plants. Energy from photosynthesis and respiration is temporarily stored in the high-energy phosphate bonds. When the phosphate bonds are broken, energy is released to activate a series of chemical reactions in plants.
If a plant doesn’t receive adequate phosphorus, its energy needs can’t be fully met. The plant’s new growth will be stunted, both at the roots and at the shoots, and as phosphorus deficiency worsens, the plant will eventually shut down and die. An adequate amount of phosphorus is required throughout the entire life cycle of a plant, and lack of available phosphorus is often the limiting factor for plant growth.
Phosphorus is not very mobile in soil. It is easily adsorbed or locked up with other minerals, making it unavailable to plants. Very little plant-available phosphorus is actually dissolved in the soil solution. In fact, adsorbed phosphates on soil particles are often hundreds to thousands of times greater than phosphates in the soil solution. As a plant takes up the phosphates from the soil solution, the adsorbed phosphates slowly take their place, but they are sometimes not fast enough to meet the energy needs of the plants. Plants must have a steady supply of phosphorus from seed to harvest.

Flairform has been a leader in product innovation and quality since 1992. Having worked professionally in the field of water, agricultural and horticultural chemistry since 1966, our chemists have accumulated significant scientific expertise. This expertise has enabled us to solve many of the product development challenges facing the hydroponic industry. We are now able to offer the most technically advanced products and grower advice that enables even the most inexperienced to grow like a professional.
Bob Taylor – The Founder
Up until 1992, Bob Taylor, was the Principal Chemist of the Water Resources section at Western Australia’s State Government Chemistry Centre. This was the State Government’s consultancy service for all water related problems for the State’s Water Authority, other government departments, industry and general public. Bob worked there as a Chemist from 1966 in both Agricultural Chemistry and Water Chemistry. Bob was an approved NATA signatory for a wide range of water analyses. He was also an official registered analyst for the government’s chemical analysis monitoring program of all fertilizers registered in Western Australia.
Andrew Taylor – Head Chemist
Andrew is an analytical chemist with additional qualifications in plant function and nutrition. He has over 22 years experience in product research and development, and commercial manufacturing. As the author of the Flairform Grower’s Guide, he writes extensively on hydroponic growing techniques with articles featured in several prominent grow magazines.
