Macro and Micro deficiencies

Whats the best overall nutrients for immobile nutrient deficiences like maganese and boron ones that really effect bud develpment but seem impossible to correct or slow release nutrients that by the time they kick in its too late or another problem occurs before its fixed.Ive only lost in this game never have i met someone who had cured a micro deficiency!

A product like Fox Farm’s Big Bloom is intended to provide micronutrients. Micros are a component of nearly ever nute line, I would feed the one that aligns with the current macros you are feeding.


I use Cal Mag but whats a fast release for boron defiency?

There are no silver bullets. Use a product with micros in it. You will begin having problems with other micros if you don’t.

I’ve actually never seen a boron deficiency. It is very uncommon. Do you have pics to share?

Big bloom is good but ive moved up to Humbolts Flower stacker which im happier with!I get it an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure but thier really are no nutrient in a bottle fixes for those immovable sneaky defiencies that come outta nowhere ya know?Im all ears!

A few problems can present this way.

Find a micro product you will be happy with. It doesn’t have to be a Fox Farm product. The sooner you start, the better, or you will end up with other deficiencies. Iron deficiencies are fairly common among those not using a micro product.

I just looked at the Humbolt Flower Stacker and suggest you ditch it and use a product that has balanced NPK and micros. The product you are using is only bloom booster which has phosphorous, potassium, and has no nitrogen or micronutrients. You may be looking at a nitrogen deficiency. Pics and the information requested will help us help you get to a solution.


Been using flower stacker since it came out.No it does not have what i need but before i use your big bloom id pick it any day of the week.Nothing on the market has boron or maganese defiency corrections your no help there either robot.I wasnt aware you guys use A.I to answer questions!:rofl:

So you’re new here and I’m going to 'splain to you the rules: Do NOT insult other members here. Your “Robot” comment was offensive and not acceptable. You were given good advice from an experienced grower which you blew off.

Read the Forum Policy before posting again. If you cannot adhere to the rules here then I will remove you permanently.

That is all.


Ya got your chance. Buh-bye!
