How Advanced Nutrients – Big Bud works:
Big Bud is a flowering Booster with a difference. Almost all flowering Boosters contain P and K which are used in large amounts during the blooming period. This product not only provides PK but also a whole lot more to increase flower formation and quality. Amino acids provide the building blocks of proteins for increased blooming and increased metabolism. Magnesium helps to prevent potassium toxicity and improves texture and flavour while Ascorbic and Citric acids improve respiration and metabolism. Big Bud noticeably increases the number of flowering-sites and the number of flowers during the early to middle parts of flowering. Towards the end of flowering, we recommend you switch your booster to Overdrive in order to finish, swell and ripen your crop. This booster is fully compatible with Sensi Bloom & Connoisseur and will not affect their “pH perfect” technology.
How to use Advanced Nutrients – Big Bud:
Big Bud is for use as a flowering booster & stimulator in addition to your usual hydroponic base nutrient (preferably Sensi Bloom or Connoisseur) from week 2 of flowering through to 3 weeks before harvest.
Fill your recirculating system reservoir with freh water and add your base nutrient and any other additives as usual to the required strength according your feed chart and mix well. Add Big Bud to your feed water/nutrient solution at a rate of 2ml/Litre and again mix well. As long as you have only used Adavanced Nutrients products in their “pH Perfect” range, the pH will be spot-on and will not need adjusting. If you have used any products by other manufacturers then you may need to check and adjust pH. If this is the case, we recommend the use of a pH meter, such as the Horticare pH meter to help accurately set and maintain the pH to the correct level. We always recommend checking the strength of you nutrient solution with a quality meter such as the Bluelab Truncheon to make sure that the strength is appropriate for the type of plant, it’s health, and the stage of growth that it is in. We recommend you renew your nutrient solution every 7 days.
At 3 weeks before harvest we recommend you switch to using Advanced Nutrients Overdrive as your booster to finish off your grow as it is specifically designed to swell the increased number of created flowers.
As with all nutrients, boosters and additives, never mix them together in their concentrated form (i.e. straight from the bottle). Always add each nutrient, booster or additive to your reservoir water or feed water in turn, giving the solution a good stir to mix it in before adding the next one.
Advanced Nutrients recommended dosage rates are only for vigorously growing plants that in the peak of health. Slower growing plants and those that are not 100% healthy will require a lower dosage rate.
