During the final weeks of flowering, cannabis plants have specific nutrient requirements to
support bud development and enhance flavor. Here are some essential nutrients to consider
for feeding your cannabis plants during this stage:
- Phosphorus (P): Phosphorus is crucial for bud development and overall plant energy.
Look for a bloom-specific nutrient formula with higher levels of phosphorus to support
- Potassium (K): Potassium aids in bud development, enhances flavor, and improves
overall plant health. Look for a nutrient formula with a higher potassium content during
the flowering stage.
- Calcium (Ca): Calcium is essential for cell wall development and nutrient transport
within the plant. Maintain adequate levels of calcium to prevent deficiencies and
promote healthy growth.
- Magnesium (Mg): Magnesium is a central component of chlorophyll and is necessary for
photosynthesis. It also helps with nutrient uptake and enzyme activation. Ensure your
nutrient solution includes sufficient magnesium.
- Sulfur (S): Sulfur is involved in various metabolic processes and aids in the production of
essential oils and aromas in cannabis flowers. Make sure your nutrient formula contains
- Micronutrients: In addition to the macronutrients mentioned above, your plants will
also require micronutrients such as iron (Fe), manganese (Mn), zinc (Zn), copper (Cu),
boron (B), and molybdenum (Mo). These trace elements are vital for overall plant health
It’s important to note that nutrient requirements can vary depending on the specific strain,
growing medium, and environmental conditions. Always follow the recommended dosage
provided by the nutrient manufacturer and monitor your plants closely for any signs of nutrient
deficiencies or excesses. Adjust the nutrient levels accordingly to achieve optimal results.
