What is a Foliar Spray
A foliar spray is simple a technique of applying nutrients on the foliage of a plant to increase nutrient uptake and usage. This technique allows the plant to absorb nutrients through the leaves’ stomata and epidermis.
Foliar Sprays are especially effective when feeding mobile nutrients, which the plant can easily translocate to an area of deficiency. A change in the plants’ “body language” can often times be witnessed only a few hours after applying Extreme Blend as a foliar spray.
Time to Foliar Feed
Foliar feed early in the day or in the evening, when the sun is weaker. In an indoor environment, foliar spray when the lights are off. As water droplets form on your leaves and are exposed to lights/sun, it can act like a magnifying glass. This magnifying effect has the potential to burn your plants. Make sure to cut the lights or foliar feed as early or as late in the day as you can.
Use a surfactant. Surfactants reduce the surface tension of the water, spreading it over the leaf surface. In basic terms, more uniform and even coverage of the beads of water on the leaf. More surface area = more absorption. Yucca makes a great organic surfactant. Include Yucca with every foliar spray and root drench application.
Where do I Spray?
Hit everything- top and bottom. Remember, stomata are on the undersides of the leaves. Spraying the underside of your leaves during a foliar application, will certainly increase nutrient uptake and allow the plant to utilize more of the nutrient. Don’t forget to spray the tops and bottoms of the leaves for maximum absorption.
We have seen amazing results using our Extreme Blend as a foliar spray. Your plants grow like never before, as it is getting a plant based nitrogen source it is not familiar with. All of the ingredients you currently feed with are enhanced when using Extreme Blend.
This blend is nothing short of amazing and is the best all around fertilizer I have found to date.
Foliar Sprays Products
– Enhance plant development during Grow and Bloom stages. Easy application with fantastic results. A Foliar Spray will take your garden to the next level, by providing nutrients in ways your plant has never seen.
Foliar Sprays will help the plan absorb more nutrients, this increases the risk for potential burn to your plants. Remember, it is always better to foliar feed, a very little amount on a regular basis, rather than trying to feed a heavy dose all at one time. Morning dew on the plant is not a strong nutrient solution, but it happens everyday. Light doses frequently get best results when foliar spraying.
