MisterIto's organic beginner nutrient formula

Organic hydroponics is gaining popularity among growers due to its potential to deliver superior quality and yield compared to traditional soil-based organic methods. The key to success lies in using the right nutrients and maintaining optimal growing conditions. This article outlines a typical crop timeline and nutrient regimen for organic hydroponics, focusing on the use of Botanicare Pure Blend Pro, FoxFarm Big Bloom, and hydrogen peroxide.

Crop Timeline and Plant Development Stages​

  1. Weeks 1-2: Clones or seedlings acclimate to their transplant into a General Hydroponics Aeroflo system. At this stage, plants are usually 4-8 inches tall.
  2. Week 3 onwards: Plants are switched to a 12-hour dark period until they mature. Nutrient solution is changed every two weeks.

Nutrient Regimen and PPM Levels​

  1. Botanicare Pure Blend Pro Grow: 5-10ml/gal, weeks 1-4. Provides balanced nutrients for vegetative growth.
  2. Botanicare Pure Blend Pro Bloom: 5-10ml/gal, weeks 3 onwards. Supports flowering and fruiting stages.
  3. FoxFarm Big Bloom: 5-15ml/gal, weeks 5 onwards. Enhances flower size and quality.
  4. 3% hydrogen peroxide: 30ml/gal, every other day. Helps to oxygenate the nutrient solution and prevent root rot.
Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) levels are maintained as follows:

  • 500-600ppm for young, established seedlings or rooted cuttings.
  • 800-900ppm during peak vegetative growth.
  • 1000ppm during the transition from early to heavy flowering.
  • 400-500ppm during the final 2 weeks of flushing.

pH Management​

Maintain the pH between 5 and 5.5. Due to the high buffering capacity of organic supplements, little to no adjustment is usually required.

By following this guideline, organic hydroponics growers can achieve a balance between quality and quantity in their plant growth. The use of Botanicare Pure Blend Pro, FoxFarm Big Bloom, and hydrogen peroxide ensures that plants receive the essential nutrients and optimal conditions necessary to thrive in an organic hydroponic environment.
