Base Nutrition, Supplements, and Pest Control
A cannabis plant cannot do without base nutrition. Over time, the soil becomes depleted, and your cannabis plant weakens. To prevent this, you need to provide basic plant nutrition. These are fertilizers with the correct ratio of NPK (nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium). Don't worry, all plant nutrition in this category is highly suitable for growing cannabis. We've already sorted out that NPK story for you! However, you still need to choose between nutrition for growth and nutrition for flowering. Cannabis plants have different nutrient requirements when they start flowering.
Supplements and Plant Nutrition
Supplements can be various products that give growth, flowering, and yield a boost but are not strictly necessary to keep your cannabis plant alive. Think, for example, of a root stimulator that helps you grow large and strong roots or a supplement that makes your cannabis taste juicier and sweeter after harvest. Yes, there are so many choices. We recommend stocking up on some supplements in addition to your basic plant nutrition when growing cannabis.

For those who grow hydroponic cannabis, we have special hydroponic nutrition that provide your cannabis plants with all essential nutrients without the need for soil. This hydroponics nutrition is perfect for growing cannabis plants in water and ensures that your plants lack nothing without soil.
NPK stands for nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium in that order. These are the elements that plants need the most, along with water and CO2. Plants must extract these through their roots from the soil. If the soil does not contain these elements or if they are not in the right proportions for the plant's needs, various leaf problems can occur. The plant becomes malnourished and therefore sick.
A good all-around growth nutrition for cannabis has an NPK of 7-5-6.
A suitable NPK for the entire flowering phase of your cannabis plants is 3-10-10.
This doesn't mean that plant nutrition with different NPK ratios is bad. It's just less optimal. For example, a flowering nutrition with 1-3-3 is also okay. You can think of NPK as the five-a-day for plants, describing the basic needs for plants. Each plant has its own needs. Roses, oak trees, and cannabis plants all have different nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium requirements. You can learn more about NPK in this blog about the differences between flowering and growth nutrition.
