B.A.C Feeding Chart | Usage Guide

Contents:

Biological Activated Cocktail’s (aka B.A.C) is a company specialized in fertilizers, grow and bloom stimulants, and invigorators, the company first started with roses but soon enough developed their products for a wide range of plants, including cannabis.

Their award-winning products allow growers with all levels of expertise to grow healthy plants either organically or inorganically, without much hassle; So, learn more about B.A.C products for all setups, NPK fertilizer ratio, more info about their additives, and a specific feeding schedule for photos or autoflowers. 

1. B.A.C Additives 

Apart from the high-quality organic nutrients we’ll be talking about further into this article, B.A.C also offers a couple of additives designed for either soil, coco, or hydro.

 

B.a.c usage guide: additives

B.A.C additives can be used in any grow setup!
 

These products contain different ratios of NPK but you’ll be using the same mineral additives with all of them, so here’s a bit of information about them, have in mind that some of them are optional so we’ll indicate a couple of advantages to help you decide if you need to use it or not.

Root Stimulator

This product is a strong root stimulator that boosts beneficial microorganism growth in your preferred substrate, creating a symbiotic relationship that will allow your roots to thrive due to the microorganisms creating oxygen for the roots to breathe while improving nutrient absorption.

 

Benefits

  • Protects root environment against diseases;
  • Adjusts pH in the root zone;
  • Enhances root growth.

Bloom Stimulator

Bloom simulator provides and stimulates the multiplication of beneficial microorganisms that enhance nutrient absorption and nutrient transportation, especially potassium (K) which is super important for flower production.

These beneficial microorganisms also bind to the roots and creating a large network that allows the roots to reach even deeper, this way they’ll never run out of oxygen or nutrients during flowering, resulting in a much smoother growth.

 

Benefits

  • Improves Potassium absorption;
  • Faster flower development;
  • Regulates pH.

Foliar Spray (Leaf Nutrients)

This product also contains microorganisms but unlike the two products mentioned before, this one should be used as a foliar spray due to containing the microorganisms that live on and inside the leaves, improving photosynthesis and chlorophyll production.

 

B.a.c usage guide: leaf nutrients

When spraying with the lights off make sure the environment is on point to avoid mold.
 

Foliar spray or leaf nutrition can also be used to enhance plant growth, making your plants stronger and their leaves thicker while protecting them against powdery mildew, bud rot (Botrytis), thrips, and spider mites among others.

 

Benefits

Benefits

  • Healthier leaves;
  • Greener leaves;
  • Stronger stem and branches.

Silica Power

As the name says, Silica power contains Silica which is used by the plant’s cells to develop denser walls, this way it’s easier for your plants to move around nutrients, resulting in less chances of nutrient deficiencies while helping regulate the pH of the medium and preventing fungal infections.

 

Benefits

  • Protects against stress;
  • Overall stronger plants;
  • Better bud quality and yields.

F1 Extreme booster

F1 Extreme Booster is a flowering booster that provides what the buds need to grow big, dense, and full of terpenes during the last weeks of the flowering stage, resulting in a better-tasting and smelling harvest.

 

B.a.c usage guide: f1 extreme booster

F1 Extreme Booster enhances terpene production and improves the overall quality of the buds.
 

This is due to the top-quality ingredients and molasses, you can expect exceptional aromas and tastes after curing so make sure you check and adjust the environment in your drying room and that you cure your buds properly.

The microorganisms provided by this product discards all harmful elements, providing your plant only beneficial nutrients, thus improving soil health.

 

Benefits

  • Reconditions soil;
  • Prevents nutrient toxicity;
  • Improved root growth.

2. Base Mineral Products

Now that you know a bit more about their additives, here are their base mineral fertilizers for soil, coco, and hydro; Remember that you should use the products according to your substrate because each one provides macro and micronutrients in the right ratio for each type of setup.

Nutrients for Soil

One Component Soil Grow 

1 Component Soil grow contains a highly-concentrated formula with refined trace elements, including everything your plants need in the vegetative stage in just one product, unlike other products which are often divided in two parts (A + B).

 

B.a.c usage guide: one component soil grow

This product will promote stronger branches and leaves, allowing your plant to withstand dense buds with ease.
 

This product will result in better nutrient absorption, enhanced root growth, and bigger and stronger leaves and branches, preparing your plant for some big dense buds, just make sure you don't overfeed because it may end up stressing your plants, resulting in the opposite effect.

 

Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P)Potassium (K)
714

 

One Component Soil Bloom

1 Component Soil Bloom provides everything your plants need in the flowering stage when growing in soil, allowing your plant to develop dense, resinous, and flavorful buds while enhancing root growth and nutrient absorption, and when combined with the products you’ll see in the schedule up next, you’ll get exceptional results.

 

Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P)Potassium (K)
614

 

Have in mind that these nutrient doses are based on the recommended growing conditions, which you'll read further into the article; It's possible that you have to adjust these amounts depending on the temperature and humidity in your growing space.

 

B.A.C Mineral Feeding Schedule For Photoperiodics in Soil (ml/L)

B.a.c mineral feeding schedule: photoperiodics in soil

Have in mind that the amounts in both tables are based on the conditions the manufacturer advises, it's possible that if your growing conditions are different you’ll have to change the amounts or adjust your growing conditions.

Nutrients for Coco and Hydro

Now, if you grow in hydro, either soil or soilless, here’s what you’ll need for your setup, make sure you’re using the right products for your setup because both of them have different NPK ratios designed for the best results possible in your type of grow.

Coco Grow A + B

Coco Grow is a two-part fertilizer designed for the vegetative stage when growing in coco fiber, this product contains everything your plants need to grow strong and healthy, and thanks to the high-quality ingredients, results in better nutrient absorption.

 

Coco Grow A
Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P)Potassium (K)
1201

 

Coco Grow B
Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P)Potassium (K)
434

 

Coco Bloom A + B

Coco Bloom A + B is a two-part fertilizer that provides everything your plants need during flower formation, allowing you to maximize your harvest due to the ideal NPK ratio and trace elements it contains that results in bigger and denser buds.

 

Coco Bloom A
Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P)Potassium (K)
1002

 

Coco Bloom B
Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P)Potassium (K)
323

Hydro Grow A + B

Hydro grow A+B is very similar to the products mentioned above for coco fiber but designed for hydroponic growers, specially made for any hydro setup, this fertilizer is 100% water-soluble and won’t clog your equipment while maximizing plant growth due to its NPK ratio.

 

Hydro Grow A
Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P)Potassium (K)
1201

 

Hydro Grow B
Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P)Potassium (K)
435

 

Hydro Bloom A + B

Just like Hydro Grow A+B, Hydro bloom A+B is a product designed for hydro but for the flowering stage, this product provides excellent results in all types of hydroponic setups, including soilless setups, allowing your plants to produce super dense buds while enhancing taste and aroma.

 

Hydro Bloom A
Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P)Potassium (K)
1203

 

Hydro Bloom B
Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P)Potassium (K)
334

 

Remember that these EC levels are what the company recommends and may vary according to your setup, if you're growing in recirculating systems you should adjust the chart so it better suits your setup and if you're still not sure, you can always check online for more information.

 

B.A.C Mineral Feeding Schedule For Photoperiodics in Coco and hydro (ml/L)

B.a.c mineral feeding schedule: photoperiodics in coco and hydro

Always remember that the amounts may differ depending on your growing setup and your growing conditions, this is just a general guideline to give you a base and increase or decrease the nutrient dose depending on how well your plants perform.

3. Organic Products

Apart from the mineral line and additives, B.A.C also offers a 100% organic fertilizer line for those who prefer growing organically, all of these products can be used in soil and coco but may end up clogging your hydro setup so they’re not recommended for hydroponic growing.

Organic Grow

Organic grow contains everything your plant needs to grow strong and healthy during the vegetative stage while also stimulating root growth and feeding the beneficial microorganisms in the soil, resulting in faster plant growth and increased protection against mold.

 

Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P)Potassium (K)
723

 

Organic Bloom

Organic bloom is a 100% natural fertilizer designed for the flowering stage; This product provides beneficial microorganisms that help oxygenate the root zone, thus resulting in an overall better bud quality while increasing resistance your plants against thrips and spider mites without running the risk of overfeeding.

 

B.a.c mineral feeding schedule: organic bloom

Organic bloom provides every macro and micronutrient your plant's need for a smooth flowering.
 

Just have in mind that increasing resistance does not mean that pests will not attack your plant, you still have to keep an eye on your crop but it can be easier to deal with bugs if you spot them early.

Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P)Potassium (K)
656

 

PK Booster

PK booster is a 100% organic booster designed for enhancing flower formation and quality, this product provides just what your plants need for healthy bud production, improving flavors and aromas while promoting bigger yields.

 

Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P)Potassium (K)
428

 

Due to being 100% organic, it’s harder to get nutrient lockout so feel free to increase or decrease the nutrient dose based on how your plants develop, just make sure to start with a lower dose and increase it gradually so you know how much your plants can't take without stressing your plants.

 

B.A.C Organic Feeding Schedule For Photoperiodics (ml/L)

B.a.c mineral feeding schedule: photoperiodics with organic feeding

Just remember that you can always add more but once you’ve fed your plants there’s no way to take back the nutrients, so we always recommend starting with a lower amount, for example, in week one where it says 1-2ml it's recommended you start with 1ml and only start feeding with 2ml after a couple of feedings.

4. What About Autoflowers?

For those of you growing autoflowers, here is the feeding schedule for growing autoflowers in soil, this table for autoflowers recommends starting with 1/3 of the dose and then increasing it to 1/2, which should be okay for most strains, but if you’re growing a heavy feed or a strain that’s a bit more sensitive to nutrients, you should increase (or decrease) the amounts.

 

B.A.C Mineral Feeding Schedule For Autoflowers in Soil (ml/L)

B.a.c mineral feeding schedule: autoflowers in soil

Have in mind that this table is a general guideline, some strains can be more sensitive to nutrients so we recommend keeping an eye on your plants to avoid overfeeding, and if necessary, decrease the nutrient dose.

Now, if you’re dealing with a heavy feeder it’s possible that your plant needs more food so make sure you pay attention and increase the dose to avoid underfeeding.

 

B.A.C Organic Feeding Schedule For Autoflowers (ml/L)

B.a.c mineral feeding schedule: autoflowers with organic feeding

Remember that these amounts are based on the conditions B.A.C recommends, so if your growing conditions differ you will have to adjust your growing environment or adjust the nutrient dose according to how your plants react.

5. Recommended Growing Conditions

Have in mind that the amounts in both of these tables may vary according to your growing conditions, B.A.C recommends the ideal temperature, humidity, and pH for the best results when using these amounts, so here’s a table to help you better:

B.a.c mineral feeding schedule: recommended growing conditions

If you're growing conditions differ, you will have to adjust the amounts of your growing conditions for the best results.

Also, have in mind that when growing organically there’s no need to check and adjust the pH as long as you check the pH of the water source you’ll be using before starting your grow cycle due to the microorganisms in B.A.C organic products regulating the pH of the soil, so make sure it’s in the 6.0-7.0 range and you won’t have to worry.

6. In Conclusion

B.A.C offers fertilizers of all kinds and for all growing setups you can imagine, it doesn’t matter how you’re growing; Make sure you use the product that better suits your setup and read the labels before starting your grow cycle.

If you’ve grown with B.A.C nutrients before please share your tips with fellow growers, or if you have questions that we’ve not answered in this blog, feel free to leave a comment in the comment section below!
