As a cannabis grower, you face many different challenges. Usually, the growing process goes very smoothly and your little baby plants will grow into beautiful, mature plants without too many problems. But during the growing season, you might also run into some problems. And in such case, it is useful if you have the knowledge or experience to solve a problem adequately. Solving a problem during growth always starts with making the right diagnosis. Because if you rush to draw conclusions and opt for a solution that turns out to be wrong, then you are even further from home. Your plant already has a problem and by making the wrong choice you might saddle the plant with an additional problem. That would be a waste of your time and energy. And it is also a waste of time and energy for your plant. It would be much nicer if your plant could put all its energy into producing the largest possible harvest, wouldn't it? So, suppose your plants have a problem, first take the time to analyze the problem, ask a grower who has more experience if necessary. Start working on the solution, only when you are sure what is wrong with your plant. In this article, we will discuss leaf spray. Leaf spray, the name says it all, is a solvent that you can spray on the leaves of your plant to solve all kinds of problems. So read on and learn all about it.
Take good care of your cannabis plant
Suppose your weed plant has a nutritional deficiency, then you could consider using leaf spray. It is an effective way to solve a nutrient deficiency, but it does not replace the nutrition that a plant absorbs through its roots. In addition to tackling a food shortage, you can also use plant spray to combat pests such as fungus or when your plant is attacked by insects. Read on and discover the many possibilities of leaf spray.
Not all cannabis growers use leaf spray. In many cases, it is not necessary either. But there are situations in which you can really use the help of this spray to give your weed plant a helping hand and help it through a difficult time. Spraying a plant with a spray does not require a special growing experience, but it can still be useful to know more about applying such a spray before you give it to your plants. Because in which situation do you use leaf spray? And in which situation absolutely not? Read on and discover everything about the positive effects that leaf spray can have on your plants. But also everything about the risks that leaf spray entails.
First, let's share an important fact with you: leaf nutrition is not a substitute for the normal way in which your plant absorbs nutrition, namely through the roots. Normally a plant sucks up food through the roots, which are stuck in the soil or in another growth medium. You should see leaf spray as a supplement to the normal diet, but not as a replacement. It is a good way to provide your plants with extra calcium or magnesium. It is also a very good way to supplement micronutrients such as iron and zinc. Leaf nutrition is, therefore, an extra.
The advantage of leaf spray
A big advantage of leaf spray is that it works very quickly. You can imagine that the application of a substance to the leaves is absorbed by the plant much faster than when it has to go up all the way through the soil through the roots. This makes it a very effective way to tackle a temporary deficit. The substance that is sprayed on the leaves is absorbed very quickly by the plant. This allows a plant to be supplied with extra nutrients at a rapid pace. Research indicates that almost 100% of leaf nutrition has an effect. This means that plants that are sprayed absorb almost 100% of the nutrients. This percentage is much higher than with food that is added to the earth. However, more nutrition can be absorbed by the root system than by the leaves. Administering nutrition via the leaves also prevents too many minerals and other nutrients from being deposited in the earth, which can result in a food blockage. The use of foliar nutrition as a supplement partially relieves the root system.
Leaf spray is not only used to give plants extra nutrition, but it is also an effective means to help your plant with protection against mites, bugs, and other vermin. In addition, it also works against mold. It often contains antifungal properties. If you use neem oil leaf spray in combination with aloe vera, you can effectively protect your plant against pests. Insects and lice can also be effectively controlled with leaf spray. Pests are removed with it and moreover, the defense mechanism of the plant is improved. It is not without reason that leaf spray is becoming increasingly popular among growers, both as extra plant food and as a way to protect the plant against all kinds of intrusions such as insects and fungi.
