Bloom boosters: putting the petal to the metal

Nothing is as sweet or as fragrant as a blooming flower. When blooms are the basis of a successful season, bigger, brighter, and more fragrant blooms sell. Every grower wants a successful harvest and even those that are satisfied with a yield would love to have better numbers. The success of a harvest and flowering crops is directly correlated to the nutrients and inputs placed on the crop. The big secret to success is through bloom boosters. Operations that routinely use a bloom booster have shown an increase in production and quality. No matter the type of operation from traditional, hydroponics, aeroponics, etc, bloom boosters have shown to be a beneficial asset to flower production.  

A bloom booster defined
Bloom boosters have many benefits that help plants to be happy and healthy so that flowers and blooms prosper. These boosters work similarly to a protein drink before a workout. Bloom boosters deliver a late-stage dose of phosphorus and potassium along with other nutrients such as calcium, sulfur, and magnesium. This fertilizing compound is specifically developed to support healthy flowering during the last stage of development. It is important to do research on the needs of a crop for flowering so that the correct bloom booster can be applied. Otherwise, a crop may develop a nutrient deficiency or imbalance. Each of the macro-nutrients in a bloom booster plays a role in the flower development process.

Support for flowering
A plant needs a multitude of nutrients to develop fully to its highest potential and quality. This starts from germination to flowering and everything in between. When a crop receives the right mix of nutrients throughout its life cycle a grower increases the average crop yield. It should be noted, however, that just because a crop has lacked a nutrient or hasn’t received the ‘perfect mix' that they will never grow properly. Growing flowers takes an unbelievable amount of energy for the plant. Bloom boosters are a sort of time eraser. The boost of nutrients packs a punch and gives flowers the push they need to develop amazing blooms by replenishing nutrients that otherwise may be running low. Another benefit of applying a booster at this stage is that it will extend the bloom phase and give crops more vital time to produce the high quality that is sought after. 

Red flag bloom boosters
Red Flag nutrients currently have on the commercial horticulture market two-part fertilizers that are specifically engineered to give plants all of the essential nutrients that they need during their bloom phase. With the boosters pre-blended and ready to go, the application is a breeze and takes out the guesswork. These bloom boosters are a mix of potassium sulfate, sodium borate, ferrous sulfate, and magnesium sulfate for part A and part B being a greenhouse grade calcium nitrate. For safe, bio-friendly, plant nutrients, and growing solutions for crops, look no further. At RF Agriculture, all available products are time-tested, researched, and ensured to help provide the nutrients a plant needs to be happy and healthy.
