Technaflora Thrive Alive B1 Red Questions & Answers
What makes the Recipe for Success (RFS) so successful? The RFS is comprised of 10 exceptional nutrients and supplements along with the easy to use Recipe for Success Mixing Chart to meet your gardening needs whether you grow hydroponically, in soil or soilless mediums. The RFS works on a stage to stage plant cycle formula rather than week to week, eliminated the guess work for you. From the cutting stage through to the pre harvest stage the RFS shows you how to mix your nutrients successfully and with ease.
Can BC Nutrients be used in conjunction with soil? All the nutrients and supplement in the Recipe For Success can be used in soil mediums with fantastic results. The difference is the frequency of use. In hydroponics, the Recipe would be fed to the root zone of the plants during every irrigation cycle. However, with soil based mediums the frequency of use needs to be reduced in order to avoid a build up of salts in the soil that would no doubt occur with continued use.Many users employ the "Rule of Thirds" when using our Recipe in soil mediums. This is to say that the full strength Recipe for any given stage of growth is fed to the plants at every 3rd irrigation (Fertilizer, Water Water). To be sure that excess salts are not building up in your soil, checking both the PPM and the pH of your runoff (liquid that escapes the bottom of your planting container after irrigation) is a good idea. Also, be sure to flush stored nutrients out of your soil for about a week prior to harvest using only plain water.
How dry should I let the soil get between irrigations to maximize nutrient use? You should try to cycle the irrigation of your plants so that they go through a cycle of total saturation to near de-hydration. This is not to suggest that you should starve your plants for water, but rather that you should not be to eager to water them with great frequency. Plants will benefit by having to "search" for water in their environment. New root development will be created as plants go seeking moisture and potential rot will be avoided by not keeping plants too moist. The exact rhythm of your irrigation cycle will depend on many factors specific to your growing situation: Size of plant, size of container, type of medium in terms of water retention, room temperature and humidity etc. Get to know your plants and their needs and find a rhythm that works for both you and your plants.
