Kelp Me Kelp You is a natural, organic seaweed extract derived from Norwegian kelp, Ascophyllum nodosum. FoxFarm's product is a liquid concentrate suitable for fruits, vegetables, lawns, gardens, flowers, and hydroponic applications. Seaweed extract is a plant biostimulant that can be sprayed on the foliage, applied to the soil, or added to the hydroponic recirculating nutrient reservoir. Kelp Me Kelp You improves water-holding characteristics of soil and contains numerous plant growth promoting substances, most notably cytokinins, which have been shown to accelerate the uptake of plant nutrients into roots, increase plant growth, and slow the progression of disease.
Kelp Me Kelp You is a natural plant nutrient comprised of microbial cultures and kelp. It contains a mixture of cytokinins, amino acids, and enzymes. Cytokinins are known to stimulate plant growth and together with auxins will benefit seed germination as well. The two substances work synergistically at low concentrations. They may increase the number of shoots and promote stem growth in plants. Kelp contains gibberellic acid, which aids in regulating cell division and cell enlargement in plants and root systems. Kelp Me Kelp You enhances nutrient uptake, improves fruiting and flowering head development, and increases yields.
• Stimulates seed germination
• Promotes root growth
• Increases water and nutrient uptake by roots
• Increases yields
• Enhances fruit and vegetable quality
• Improves soil structure
• Natural biostimulant promotes plant growth
• Safe for children, pets, plants and the environment
Application: Apply 2 to 3 times during early spring and twice again after fruit set. Kelp Me Kelp You can be utilized as a foliar spray, or poured directly into the soil. Kelp is not a substitution for primary plant nutrients and should be regard as a supplement. Balanced fertilizers should be used as a regular feeding regimen for optimum results.
What should the temperature of the nutrient solution in my reservoir be?
Nutrient solution is best maintained between 65 and 70 degrees Farenheit for optimal conditions. Water chiller units (item#AACH) are available to maintain specific control if needed.
What does N-P-K stand for on my nutrient?
N-P-K is the abbreviated form of Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium within a nutrient formula. The numbers labled on a specific formula represent the percentage of that compound. Ex. 2-6-6 is 2 percent Nitrogen and 6 percent Phosphorus and Potassium.
Why use beneficial bacteria and fungi?
These biological organisms colonize on plant roots and in grow medium. They enhance nutrient absorption, increase root mass, as well as promote environmental resistance to disease, pests, heat and drought.
