Good evening everyone I am using Lotus nutrients for this grow and am SUPER happy with it. That said one plant has what appears to be a Boron issue ( and I’m pretty sure I had a Boron issue with my autoflower as well using a different nutrient line).
That being said my Bloom ( the main flowering nutrient I use in Lotus line) does have a very small amount of Boron 0.02% I believe.
What is a good Boron supplement I could add for just boron?
I don’t want to use full flowering blend since most of my girls are good and I don’t want to overdo it but I do want to give the one girl just more Boron.
Sorry if this thread was Borong (Boron / Boring see what I did there)
Borax or Colmanite. I’ve never had boron issues personally but those would be my suggested sources for boron. Alternatively Gerstley borate, but that’s a real niche material, I’m pretty sure borax is still sold in most laundry aisles.
Borax is sodium borate and is different than boron. It can be used, but is far from ideal. Borax is a wetting agent much like that used in flushing agents such as Sledgehammer and FloraKleen. It is toxic to plants in larger doses. The best way to feed boron is to use the various nutrient lines’ micro products (FloraMicro, Big Bloom,…)
Good point. I’d use it as a last resort. The extent of my chemistry sort of begins and ends with ceramics. Gerstley borate is calcium borate, which would be my preference between the two although I believe slower to release.
Probably so - it’s interesting how few of the nutrients out there specifically list boron as something they provide. I had to do a quick Google. I’m assuming it’s in Jack’s somewhere, otherwise I’d have seen boron deficiency by the dozen by now.
I’ll just give her a little more of the bloom portion that has Boron in it. It may not be but there is one leaf on one girl that has what looks exactly like boron issue on all sites I cross checked it with. Thanks guys I appreciate the input ( I also had a Boron issue with my autoflower as well so idk if it’s something in my water or what).
