Proper plant nutrition is vital to growing a healthy crop, so fertilizer selection should be a key consideration for every cannabis cultivation business. Growers have two options when it comes to feeding their plants. They can buy a complete premixed fertilizer or make their own.

Premixed fertilizers are concentrated nutrient solutions that growers buy and dilute with water before sending it out to the crop. Custom fertilizers are made in-house by measuring and mixing water-soluble plant minerals into concentrated stock solutions. Each option differs in cost, complexity, and risk.

Premixed cannabis fertilizers offer growers many advantages, including:

  • Simplicity: Most premixed fertilizers are pretty straightforward. They use a two-part formulation for vegetative growth and a different two-part formulation for flowering growth. Supplements like cal-mag provide the crop with additional calcium and magnesium, while bloom boosters help jump-start flowering by temporarily elevating phosphorus and potassium levels.
  • Ease of Use: Mixing instructions are simple. Labels suggest dilution ratios, and their company websites offer feeding schedules that indicate which products to use for each week of production.
  • Labor savings: The simplicity and ease of use of premixed fertilizers inevitably result in labor savings. Diluting concentrated fertilizer is a quick task, so growers have more time to dedicate to other activities.
