When you are growing cannabis, there are certain things that you should consider using such as fulvic and humic acids. However while there are more pros than cons, you still have to know what these are and that is what we touch on in this article. More cannabis growers are taking advantage of the pros associated with fulvic and humic acid.
For one, they are good for ensuring that the roots are healthy and that the uptake of nutrients is better. This will eventually assure that you enjoy larger yields. If you are looking for growth enhancers that are natural, then you should choose fulvic and humic acids when growing cannabis. Let us take a closer look into this.
Fulvic and humic acids used when growing cannabis, whether indoors or outdoors has the potential of reaping a big harvest. If all cannabis cultivators knew this, they would probably include these acids into their grow systems. If you have set up a hydroponic facility to growing cannabis, instead of using perlite or hydroton as inert medium, why not consider these acids instead. The inert medium does not consist of fulvic or humic acids and so you won’t get the desired outcome of a larger yield. If you have set up your cannabis garden outdoors, the soil does not have any of these acids and if it does, in many cases, it has been depleted; meaning it only has small traces. Fulvic and humic acids can improve these conditions. Now, let us see what these acids are all about.
Both of them work well when combined, offering more benefits to growing cannabis. For one, humic acid is known to improve the growth and health of your cannabis plant. Fulvic acid, on the other hand, facilitates the plants natural absorption and use of the nutrients available. Humic acid is more complex, black or dark brown in color and is soluble when contact is made with alkaline water. The molecular weight in humic acid is quite high, and for this reason, it is an excellent soil conditioner in its natural form. It rejuvenates the soil’s properties and also helps to manage the nutrients, and the water retention. Humic acid is known for its ability to attach micronutrients to the soil, forming a bond in such a way to aid in the absorption of nutrients. It also promotes the improvement of ion exchange and the capabilities of soil buffering.
Minerals and Nutrients
Humic acid also activates minerals and nutrients such as magnesium, iron, zinc and calcium; allowing it to absorb quickly and readily. This in turn stimulates the improvement of plant growth and makes the roots healthy when growing cannabis. The benefits are provided during any stage of growing cannabis; in fact, from the seedling state to the yield and maturity of your cannabis plants.
Humic acid and fulvic acid are like two cousins. They work close together. It is usually brown or light brown in color, but it has different soluble reaction in comparison to humic acid. It expresses its soluble reaction at every pH level; namely alkaline and acidic. The molecular weight of fulvic acid is lower because of its low carbon content and high oxygen content. It is for this reason that fulvic acid can cross the plant’s membranes and penetrate the leaves quite easily. You can use it to irrigate the plants and provide nutrients more quickly.
When growing cannabis, you can apply it to your plants via foliar spray and in powdered form. Both fulvic and humic acid are known to provide so many benefits to your cannabis plants that you might not have need for as much nutrients.
