Hydroponic Growth Nutrients poured into water
As your plant grows, they will need different quantities of nutrients to optimise their growth. This varies between plants, but a good schedule can be seen in the table below. The Table outlines how many scoops (standard spoon or sachet provided by EA) of nutrient you should add to a plant during a plants different growth phases. Note that our have a volume of 0.5mL.
The type of nutrient is separated into "Growth" and "Fruiting". Growth should be used the whole duration of growth for something like a leafy green or herb. Fruiting should be used once flower buds appear on plants that bear fruit/veg and require higher levels of phosphate for growth.

 

Growth Fruiting
Seedling  Early Growth Late Growth Transition Early Bloom Mid Bloom Late bloom Ripen Finish
Indoor Smart Garden Growth 1 3 4 3 - - - - -
Bloom - - - 1 4 4 4 1 0

Bloom - - - 9 26 26 26 9 0
EcoKitchen Growth 8 16 24 16 - - - - -

    The various stages of growth are defined as follows;

  • Seedling - First stage of growth, defined by a single set of "baby" leaves.
  • Early Growth - First set of "True" leaves.  
  • Late Growth - Multiple sets of true leaves
  • Transition - Buds begin to develop
  • Early Bloom - First Flowers bloom
  • Mid Bloom - Most flowers are open
  • Late Bloom - Multiple fruits growing
