Flowering Enhancer

Flowering Enhancer is a specialized PK additive that locks pH below 6.5 and strengthens flowers using added calcium, magnesium and iron chelate.

Flowering additive for plants

FLOWERING ENHANCER: Flowering additive for plants in hydroponics, coco coir or soil 

Flowering Enhancer contains a carefully balanced combination of potassium and phosphorus and is supplemented with calcium, magnesium and iron chelate to combat harsh grow room conditions:

  • Promotes strong and healthy floral blooms.
  • Strengthens plant structure during heavy fruiting stages.
  • With most nutrient brands, ‘Flowering Enhancer’ avoids needing a ‘calmag’.
  • Unlike regular PK additives, Flowering Enhancer helps lock pH below 6.5 by improving the nutrient’s pH buffering by over 500%.  This prevents pH related deficiency symptoms, even when hard water or alkaline additives are used.

Testimonial:  “Compared to the other PK additives, we see a lot more swell when using Flowering Enhancer.” (Grow store owner)

Background:   pH problems are common during flowering and will negatively impact yields.   ‘Flowering Enhancer’ will actually lock pH below 6.5 when growing in coco coir and soil, even when hard water or alkaline additives are used.  This prevents a multitude of potential growth problems such as leaf leaf curl, stunted growth and withered fruit-set.  Note, in many cases flowering additives will cause pH to rise well above 6.5, regardless of how good the water quality is.

“The size and weight of our fruits have been really impressive since using Flowering Enhancer.”

“Compared to the other PK additives, we see a lot more swell when using Flowering Enhancer.”

“Our plants are now a lot stronger and more rigid throughout flowering.”

“We use Flowering Enhancer with our regular nutrient and the improvement in pH stability and solubility was obvious from the outset. There is also no more leaf yellowing from early flower.”

'PK' flowering additives (Article)
PK additives are necessary during the flowering or fruiting phase of a plant. A variety of flowering additives are available, however PK additives are the most common type.

PK additives primarily contain phosphate (“P”) and potassium (“K”). These elements are essential during the flowering and fruiting phase. Although bloom nutrients contain phosphorus and potassium, heavy fruiting plants such as tomatoes and peppers have an especially high demand for these elements. Hence, PK additives are used in conjunction with bloom nutrients to help ensure no deficiencies occur*. They are also a more economical alternative compared to using extra bloom nutrient. *Note that EC readings will not help determine if sufficient potassium and phosphorus is in reserve.

PK additives should generally be used from the onset of budding until flowers or fruit are fully formed.

When choosing a PK additive choose a brand that is relatively pH ‘neutral’. Many brands are quite ‘alkaline’ which causes a significant increase in nutrient solution pH. These can quickly destabilize the nutrient if pH is not adjusted immediately after dosing.
