Foliar Fertilizers

Foliar feeding is a method of fertilizing plants by spraying the nutrient directly on the leaves. A popular method used for not only hydroponic gardening but also for container gardening and landscape gardening, you spray foliar fertilizer in a liquid form directly to the plant's foliage. Foliar feeding is considered especially useful for introducing trace elements, or for emergency feeding of plants which are found to have a specific shortage. There are many nutrients available from HIDHut that can be used as foliar fertilizers, and several have specialized purposes.

The foliar fertilizer is typically applied with a sprayer to the leaves of a plant in foliar fertilization. There are certain mixtures of foliar spray that includes algae as an ingredient, because these algae-based mixes offer the benefit of providing plants with needed trace elements, which are most easily absorbed by the plant through a foliar spray application. Some gardeners have actually reported seeing plants improve within an hour of spraying, due to the fast acting nature of this type of application.

Plants need a variety of macro and micronutrients in order to grow properly. The macronutrients include nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sulfur and silicon, while the micro trace nutrients consist of chlorine, iron, boron, manganese, sodium, zinc, copper, nickel and molybdenum. These need to be in the proper balance so that your plants respond the way you want. For example, feeding an organic foliar fertilizer containing a high percentage of nitrogen to a flowering plant may cause the plant to grow lush foliage at the expense of flowers, while if lettuce plants were given this same foliar fertilizer it would result in lots of salad greens. Likewise, gardeners who want plants to grow a great number of flowers need to use an organic foliar plant food that contains a high percentage of phosphorus, which boosts flower production.

It is best to avoid applying foliar fertilizer when it is hot outside, because the plant's pores will typically close to retain moisture under hot weather conditions. It is a better choice to apply organic foliar plant food in the cooler morning or evening temperatures typically found in the summer months.

Additional research has shown that foliar fertilizers can be 8 to 10 times more effective than soil feeding.
