Powder nutrients are vital during all plants’ growth cycle as they provide the necessary boost needed to produce strong and healthy plants with high yields. Characteristics of a good nutrient powder include;
- Soluble in water
- Come highly concentrated
- Contains simplified instructions on how to use
- Contains an NPK ratio (nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.)
Cannabis plants with insufficient amounts of nutrients become stunted, leaves drop at a high frequency, have delayed or slow blooming, have lower THC levels and are characterized by an inferior taste.
