A bloom booster, also known as a flowering booster or a bud booster, is any complete (containing nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium) fertiliser formulated to supply additional phosphorus to plants. The Phosphorous aids in a plant's ability to transport necessary energy where needed during its blooming cycles
Will a bloom booster increase the number of flowers?
The answer to this question is a bit more complex than it seems. Plants need a certain amount of phosphorus to grow properly. If they get right amount of phosphorus along with the other needed nutrients, plants will grow to their best ability and produce lots of fruits and flowers. If they can’t get enough phosphorus and other nutrients then they under perform.
Lets have a closer look at the nutrients plants need. How much bloom booster do plants need?
The majority of bloom booster nutrients have additional speciality fertilisers, such as phosphorus and potassium (PK) that supply extra phosphorus and potassium during the fruiting and flowering phase. Phosphorus (P) is essential for a strong root system, heavier more potent flowers and overall growth. It also hastens maturity plus increases yield and vitamin content in plants. Potassium (K) is the nutrient present in the highest quantities that is a catalyst for many plant functions. It helps form strong stems, improves colour, provides starches and oils and reduces water needs. It is essential for cell division and balances the effects of excess nitrogen and calcium.
Nutrients are designed for the flowering phase are ordinarily rich in phosphate (P) and potash (K). The amount of nitrogen required traditionally remains stable throughout the entire life cycle of the crop.
