WEEK 10 – 15

In week 10 the plant goes into flowering, the hours are reduced to 12/12, this because there are also photo-dependent plants in the crop. During week 11 there is some progress, although it is in week 12 that it is noticeable that the flowers already have a certain shape. The pistils do not stop being born. At this point, which is week 13, the Critical Auto is defoliated to further stimulate flowering.

With the latter, it is sought to have a greater production of flowers. In week 11, the same doses and irrigations are continued. However, in week 12 the fertilizer is increased to 4ml / L of water, maintaining the dose of the stimulant. In week 13 and also in 14 a stimulant is added that allows to have denser and heavier flowers. It also contributes to the stimulation of sugars. In this case, a dose of 1ml / L of water is used. The plant shows some wear in week 15, so the dose of the flowering fertilizer is increased to 5ml / L water. And in addition, a PK 13-14 fertilizer is added that provides extra nutrients, in doses of 2ml / L water.
