During vegetative growth when plants are growing vigorously, nutrient assimilation via the roots may fall short of your plants needs. This is often due to environmental stress. To overcome this biOpOnic Leaf Feed may be used as part of a Combined Foliar Feeding Programme (see below).
biOpOnic Leaf Feed encourages extensive branch formation and enhances the effectiveness of Top Heavy Crop for a greater potential yield. In addition to balanced nutrition biOpOnic Leaf Feed supplies essential amino acids, enzymes and growth enhancing stimulants for biochemical balance within your plants.
To make up a full strength Leaf Feed solution, mix 100 ml of the concentrate with 900 ml of tepid tap water. Allow it to stand for 30 minutes and then spray the plants foliage lightly to the point of runoff. With cuttings and young plants we recommend mixing biOpOnic Leaf Feed at half strength (50ml to 950ml of water) until plants are established and transplanted onto the growing system Do not mix with any other products and store both the concentrate and any made up solution away from strong light.
It is critically important not to spray your plants in full light as this may scorch the developing foliage. Always spray your plants during darkness, preferably one hour before daylight. If your plants are photoperiod sensitive use a green light source/bulb to prevent disruption of the day length.
biOpOnic Leaf Feed is available in 1 litre and 5 litre.
