Make sure to prepare the soil properly for the microorganisms to thrive by following these 4 simple steps.
 

Make sure you follow the steps thoroughly because their products are 100% organic, and failing to follow the steps can result in the death of the microorganisms that this method depends on.

Soil Preparation

Before starting, remember that these products are designed to be used in coco or soil and they should not contain any nutrients so make sure you stay away from Light-mixes or All-mixes.

Step 1

Add 5g of Startrex per liter of soil (or coco);

Step 2

Make the planting hole and spread 2g of Mycotrex in the hole;

Step 3

Plant in the seed or cutting and add 1 BioTab per 5 liters of medium, make sure the tablets are 5cm deep into the medium.

Step 4

Water with a solution of 1g of Bactrex and 5ml of Orgatrex per liter of water.

Feeding Schedule For Photoperiodic Plants

As said before, BioTabs is super easy to use and you won’t have to do much once you’ve prepared the soil.

Once you’ve prepared the soil and watered your plant with the solution described in Step 4, you just have to follow the following schedule:

 

Week 1-4 (Veg)Plain water when necessary.
Week 5 (Pre-flower)20ml of Orgatrex + 1g of Bactrex mixed in 500ml one time only (per plant).
Week 6 until harvestPlain water when necessary.

 

Remember that with these products there’s no need to measure the pH or the EC but it’s a good idea to measure the pH of the water you’ll be using throughout your grow cycle to avoid problems.

 

Bio tabs usage guide: schedule for photos

With Bio Tabs feeding, you only have to feed again during pre-flower and that's it!
 

Have in mind that the number of tabs may change according to the pot size, it’s recommended you 1 tab for a 5L pot, 2 tabs for a 10L pot, 3 tabs for a 20L pot

Also, if at any moment you feel that your plants are hungry, you can feed your plants with a mix of 5ml of Orgatrex and 1g of Bactrex per liter of water.

3. BioTabs Feeding Guide For Autoflowers

If you thought the feeding schedule for photoperiodics was easy, then for autoflowers it’s even easier but you’ll need a couple of extra things.

First of all, this method consists of just using plain water so you will have to use an All-mix and Light Mix from any brand you prefer, obviously, we recommend opting for the best quality you can such as Plagron or BioBizz but you can use whatever you can find.

You’ll also need to use Bactrex, Orgatrex and BioTabs tablets, around 2 tablets for a 15L pot or 3 for a 25L pot.

Step 1

Fill the bottom half with the All-Mix soil;

Step 2

Fill the top half with the Light Mix soil;

Step 3

For better results, mix 1g of Bactrex + 5ml of Orgatrex per liter of water and soak the soil, letting it sit under the light for 24hs for the microorganisms to activate, then you can go ahead and plant the seed or clone.

Step 4

One week before pre-flower (around week 4 or 5) add 2 BioTabs tablets, one on each side of the plant.

4. Recycling The Substrate

One of the benefits of using BioTabs or other organic products is that it allows you to recycle your soil up to 4 times, this way you save a bit of money, and the best of all, it’s really easy to do it, just follow these steps:

Step 1

Remove the stem and dispose of the first 5cm of substrate, leaving the roots in the soil;

Step 2

Mix 25g of Startrex and 3g of Mycotrex to the new soil you’ll be using to replace the 5cm of soil you’ve disposed of;

Step 3

Make a new planting hole and spread 2g of Mycotrex in the hole;

Step 4

Soak the soil with 1g of Bactrex per liter and, after placing your seed or clone, push in the same amount of BioTabs tablets you used before.

5. In Conclusion
