How B Vitamins Improve Your Plants
and Your Yield
Fortunately our scientists have repeatedly run hydroponics tests, and their findings demonstrate many B vitamin benefits for your plants, including:
Folic Acid helps plants maintain healthy metabolism and DNA, but Folic Acid breaks down easily in plants especially under intense lighting, so it’s a good idea to supplemental feed Folic Acid to your plants. Tests show that Folic upgrades the weight and quality of your harvest.
Vitamin B5 is essential for fundamental cellular processes.
Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) helps your plants use and create carbohydrates so your plants have enough energy to build strong vegetative growth and to power production of flowers and essential oils. It also facilitates your plants’ use of phosphate, which is an essential nutrient that fuels flower growth. B1 activates Systemic Acquired Resistance (SAR), which is the same benefit that happens in humans when a vaccination produces a pre-emptively increased immune response to future infections. What’s more, B1 assists in root development so your plants intake more nutrients faster, and are more resistant to shock, transplanting, cloning.
Why Your Plants Need Extra B Vitamins for Survival and Production
As you can see, B vitamins are absolutely essential- without them, your plants die.
Of course, it’s logical to ask if plants can synthesize or derive enough B vitamins from nutrients you feed them.
The answer is that your plants can synthesize some B vitamins from nutrients, but they can’t synthesize enough nutrients fast enough to achieve your goals of vigorous growth, earlier maturation, and heavier, more potent harvests.
Truth be told, the very same things that make you a superior gardener (by pushing your plants to their maximum potential) also push plants past their natural ability to produce all the vitamins they need for good health and championship performance.
So when you provide pre-made vitamins, your plants have less metabolic work to do and they use more of their nutrients for growth and floral production because they don’t have to make their entire supply of B vitamins themselves.
Besides, studies show that when plants are fatigued (which is when they most need B vitamins), that’s when they are least able to make their own vitamins.
It’s the same as why an Olympic athlete needs a higher-quality diet combined with professional vitaminization, but a person who never exercises doesn’t need such a rich diet or extra vitamins.
In fact, B vitamins are particularly useful when your plants are seedlings, new clones, transplants, or in peak flowering.
