SEA KELP: The Essential Non-Essential Nutrient

Seaweed fertilizers are beneficial to both plants and the soil they grow in. Not only does kelp deliver essential macro and micronutrients to the plant, but it also increases the plant’s ability to fight stress, strengthen cell walls, increase root mass improving nutrient uptake and provides food for microbes in the soil.

Organic Growth Hormones

Sea Kelp contains a series of naturally occurring, beneficial organic growth compounds: gibberellins, auxins, betaines and cytokinins. These hormones work together or independently to influence the speed of the plant’s growth, stem elongation and shoot growth, the stimulation of cell division and enhances root growth.

From Seed to Flower

Soaking seeds in a seaweed extract (SWE) can help increase the rate of germination, reduce transplant shock and increase the growth rate of the plant’s root system, helping to create a larger root mass and better nutrient uptake.

As your plants transition into flower, the application of seaweed fertilizers, either through the root zone or by foliar, will help increase flower sites and size, resulting in higher yields. It also improves upon the color, fragrance and flavor to the flower.

SWE will also improve soil structure and water holding capacity. And, it contains long-chain sugars, which serve as food for beneficial fungi within the substrate.

Seaweed fertilizer’s organic growth compounds help to strengthen the plant’s defenses to help fight off environmental stresses such as drought, extreme temperature variations and insect and fungal pathogens.

Summary: From Seed To Harvest

So along with delivering both N-P-K and a vast assortment of micronutrients, Sea Kelp will shepherd your plants from seed germination, into transplant, though veg and into flower and ultimately bringing your plants to their fullest potential, delivering fragrant, flavorful and abundant flowers for harvest. There are several popular products in the marketplace that provide these benefits. Compare their ingredients, percentages and cost and choose the product that best meets your needs.

What is pH? pH stands for potential hydrogen and it is the measurement of hydrogen and hydrogen ions using a scale of pH 0 to pH 14, with pH 7.0 being neutral. If your water, nutrient solution or grow medium pH is below 7.0, it is referred to as acidic, and above 7.0 is alkaline or basic). An ideal range to ensure proper nutrient uptake for most plants, including cannabis, is between 5.8 - 6.8.
