I wanted to start a thread to see how many guys use foliar sprays. And from those guys, I would love to hear about how they do it, and with what nutrients.
When I was at the hydro store the other day the owner was talking to me about foliar spraying his plants and how much they feed through their leaves etc. At checkout he gave me a sample size bottle of GH FloraLicious Plus. I was already asking about his thoughts on it so he decided to hook me up with a sample to give it a try. He said it’s great for foliar spray, and use throughout an entire grow. He also said, it’s one of the first additives he uses after his base nutrients, basically that it had all the extra little things that are needed. I had already heard about the FloraLicious Plus, and other additives like it, so it was great to hear his honest feedback on the product. He’s always up front with me and doesn’t just steer me to a product to buy it, I ask him tons of questions and he gives his personal experience outlooks on the things I ask, I love it.
So when I got home I immediately did some water changes, and added some drops of my new nutrient to my girls feeding regime. I also mixed up a spray bottle of the FloraLicious Plus and water to be used as foliar spray. I then went into my veg tent and sprayed the girls good, on bottoms and tops of leaves. I did this while the light was on, but after doing it I thought that it may not have been the right thing to do since the lights were still on. But, they loved it. No nutrient burn or discoloration on ANY leaves. So now I’ve sprayed all my plants in veg every day with the foliar spray. They seem to perk right up after spraying too, it’s pretty cool.
This got me to thinking, what if I sprayed a foliar feeding for my girls in flower, but I used both FloraLicious Plus, and FloraNectar? FloraNectar is General Hydroponics sweetener, made to add flavor and aroma to your plants. I use the FloraNectar already in the buckets, but I thought maybe this would add EXTRA goodness into the buds?
Anybody have any advice, thoughts, tips? ️
