How to use Metrop nutrient charts

How to use Metrop nutrient charts

In recent years, the Dutch fertiliser company Metrop Hydroponics has found a place in many gardens thanks to the spectacular results that can be achieved with its products, whether cultivating indoors, outdoors or in greenhouses. The range is simple to use, as it does not have as many products as other brands, with highly concentrated fertilisers and additives suitable for all types of growing mediums, from soil or coco to hydroponic or recirculation systems such as DWC or NFT.

Thus, Metrop products are ultra-concentrated, undissolved in water and completely biodegradable, which is important for the environment. Of course, their fertilisers contain all the macro and micronutrients necessary for outstanding development, both in the growth and flowering phase. So, without further ado, let's check their products out first and then we will look at their growing charts for the most common substrates in cannabis cultivation.

How to use Canna nutrient charts

How to use Canna nutrient charts

If there was ever a cannabis fertiliser company that needs no introduction, it's probably the Dutch brand Canna. Specialists in plant nutrition in various substrates (soil, coco, hydroponics and aeroponics) since the early 90s, the solidity of their results and the good information they provide to their customers have made them a benchmark in the world of cannabis cultivation.

Today we are going to take a look at their products and, above all, at their nutrient schedules, those charts that fertiliser manufacturers provide us with to guide us when it comes to providing the most complete and balanced diet possible for our plants. As many of you know, these tables give us the doses to use for each product at each stage of the plants' life, as well as the optimum pH and EC ranges for maximum development.

As you will see, we will study all the Canna nutrient charts, referring to substrates such as soil (we will see the charts for mineral as well as organic fertilisers), coco fibre, hydroponic systems (clay, rockwool, etc.) and, finally, aeroponics, those soil-less systems in which the irrigation water or nutrient solution is usually reused instead of being discarded, recirculating it from the tank to the irrigation system and back to the tank. But best not get ahead of ourselves and first, let's look at the products we are going to use in each type of growing medium.

Athena nutrient schedules and how to use their fertilisers

Athena nutrient schedules and how to use their fertilisers

Based in California, USA, the fertiliser brand Athena has quickly gained a position in the cannabis nutrient market thanks to the excellent quality of the product achieved, the amazing yields and, why not say it, the fact that professional cannabis cultivators such as the Jungle Boys have chosen them as a source of nutrition for their plants.

Today we're going to introduce you to their range of products, explain how to interpret their cultivation charts and give you some tips to make using Athena products even easier - and more effective. As many of you will already know, and we will go into detail about this later, the cultivation charts usually show the different life stages of the plant (usually expressed in weeks of growth or flowering) and the amount of each product in the range that should be mixed with the irrigation water at each stage.

Of course, the optimum ranges of EC or electroconductivity (the amount of dissolved salts or, in other words, fertiliser contained in the irrigation water) and pH (degree of acidity or alkalinity of the nutrient solution) for each stage of the crop are also indicated, as well as a practical foliar application chart. Although these tables are also available in millilitres per gallon on their website, all the measurements you will see in the Athena nutrition tables express the amount of product to be used in millilitres per 10 litres of water.

However, let's not get ahead of ourselves and start at the beginning, getting to know the products in the range of cannabis fertilisers offered by Athena a little better so that we can familiarise ourselves with them before going on to study the cultivation tables.

How to use Biobizz nutrient schedules

How to use Biobizz nutrient schedules

The Biobizz nutrient schedule is a graphic aid developed by this brand to obtain, in a simple way, the maximum benefits from their products during a complete cultivation cycle, both indoor and outdoor. They show information concerning the doses and combinations of their fertilizers based on factors such as the stage of maturation and age of the plant, presented in weeks.

To understand the schedule one should be aware the marijuana has different phases during which it requires different amounts of specific nutrients. For example, during the growth phase, the plant requires high levels of nitrogen to grow, while during flowering it needs an extra supply of nutrients like phosphorus. Therefore, it is very important to apply the correct nutrients depending on the stage your plants are in.
