How KIND Works
The KIND range of nutrients has been tested and developed over a period of 15 years, factoring in feedback from top US growers and some of the greatest minds in the industry. It’s no exaggeration to say that Botanicare is one of the most prominent fertiliser ranges in America, and KIND base nutrients are among their star products.
KIND Base is particularly rich in nitrogen and calcium, which allows users to increase levels of these important macronutrients (and secondary macronutrients) without causing imbalances. Having the ability to play around with nitrogen levels carries lots of benefits during the veg stages, when plants need greater proportions of N to sustain healthy growth.
Calcium will need to be used in varying quantities depending on the levels found in your tap-water, but when dosed correctly will boost flowering sites while improving overall plant health by strengthening individual cell walls. Calcium also helps to transport other nutrients around the plant, making better use of the nutrition contained in KIND and the additives in the Botanicare range.
Base: N 4.0%, Ca 5.0%,
The combination of KIND Grow and KIND Base delivers a profile of nutrients that’s tailor made for the vegetative stage, promoting rapid growth and vigorous health at one of the most important periods in a plant’s life cycle. What you achieve during veg lays the foundations for what goes on later on, so it’s important to get it right.
Grow: N 2.0%, P 2.0%, K 4.0%, Mg 1.5%, S 2.0%, Fe 0.12%
Formulated to squeeze as much performance out of plants as possible during the bloom phase, KIND Bloom increases the density of flower clusters early on, which lays the foundations for bigger and better fruits further down the line. KIND Bloom also contains a generous dose of magnesium, which plays a vital role in the process of photosynthesis, forming a component of chlorophyll, the green pigment that allows plants to utilise light energy.
Bloom: P 6.0%, K 6.0%, Mg 1.25%, S 2.0%, Fe 0.12%
How to Use KIND
KIND nutrients are very easy to use. Feed charts are available by clicking the links under this description but, to put it simply: Grow needs to be used throughout the vegetative stages, Bloom needs to be used throughout the flowering stages, and Base should be used right the way through the whole cycle. Dosages will vary depending on the stage that you're at. Consult the feed chart for more info.
If you’re running a reverse osmosis unit to reduce hardness, KIND nutrients will help you to get the best out of your water. All you need to do is administer nutrients as shown on the feedchart but increase the quantity of Base to boost levels of calcium. This is also a useful technique if you’re using KIND with coco, because coco coir releases potassium as it breaks down, which can cause calcium to get locked out. Boosting calcium levels ensures that plants continue to reach their full potential.
As with all nutrients, boosters and additives, never mix them together in their concentrated form (i.e. straight out of the bottle). Always add each nutrient, booster or additive to your reservoir or feed water in turn, giving the solution a good stir to mix it in before adding the next one.
