Shogun Feeding Chart | Usage Guide

Contents:

Shogun is a fertilizer company from the UK, born from the wish to make something truly special for hydroponic growers, made for growers by growers. Their nutrients and additives have resulted in not only hydroponics products but also different product lines designed for soil and coco.

Which, with lots of research, has led to very superior and innovative products that will surely take your harvest to the next level, so read along if you’re planning on using Shogun, want more info, and need a feeding schedule before starting your grow cycle with either photos or autos. 

1. Shogun Additives

Starting with Shogun additives, here you’ll learn a bit more about their benefits and composition, and exactly how to use them, doesn't matter in which substrate you're growing in.

These additives work in several different ways and help make the most out of each plant, providing enzymes, amino acids, and vitamins that result in faster, better, and overall healthier plant growth.

Katana Roots

Katana roots provide a unique formula designed to provide everything your roots need to thrive resulting in overall stronger and faster root and plant growth. This product enhances nutrient absorption, thus improving plant health and resulting in better yields.

Sumo Boost and Sumo Active Boost

Sumo boost is a bio-stimulant designed to provide an overall better bud quality by providing a faster bud production, allowing your plants to grow bigger and denser while improving smell and flavor due to boosting terpene production.

 

Shogun usage guide: sumo boost

Sumo boost improves trichome production, resulting in more potent and better-tasting flowers.
 

For hydroponic growers, Shogun offers Sumo Active Boost, which is the same product but with a different formula that allows it to stay stable and not spoil in your reservoir for up to 14 days, making it ideal for hydro and aeroponic growers.

Calmag

Calmag provides calcium and magnesium which are often overlooked by many growers, but when added in the correct amounts, will improve nutrient absorption and allow your plant to move nutrients around more effectively, facilitating your plant’s basic processes.

 

Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P) Potassium (K)
300

Silicon

This product contains extremely concentrated amounts of silicon, designed to enhance cell wall strength, strengthening your plant's structure while allowing your plant to prepare for bigger yields and increasing environmental resistance.

 

Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P) Potassium (K)
002

Geisha Foliar

Geisha foliar is a unique mixture of additives designed to be used as a foliar spray that helps you increase yields while providing an overall healthier plant growth.  

 

Shogun usage guide: geisha foliar

Geisha foliar is a foliar spray designed to provide the micronutrients your plants need, allowing you to fix deficiencies fast!
 

This product can be used during the vegetative stage where it will increase water absorption, and after your plants start flowering, can be used to stimulate bud growth, resulting in bigger and denser flowers.

PK Warrior 9/18

PK Warrior 9/18 provides your plant with what it needs to ripen as it should, giving that last boost your plants need around mid-flowering, allowing the buds to grow bigger and fatten up like you’ve never seen before.

 

Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P) Potassium (K)
0918

Dragon Force

Just like PK Warrior 9/18, this product provides phosphorus and potassium but in lower amounts, while also delivering magnesium and sulfur which is what your plants need during the last week of flowering, allowing the buds to ripen beautifully and gain much more mass for outstanding results.

 

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

2. Shogun Fertilizers For Soil

Despite coming from a hydroponic background, Shogun was able to create a fertilizer line for soil, using what they’ve learned with years and years of experience but with a unique twist that will surely translate into thriving plants.

 

Shogun usage guide: soil

Make sure to take care of the microorganisms when growing in soil!
 

Just remember that if you're growing organically you have to take care of the beneficial microorganisms, so make sure the pH is in range and you don't use too strong mineral fertilizers.

Samurai Terra Grow

Samurai Terra Grow is a refined mineral nutrient line for plants grown in soil, providing the perfect NPK ratio to allow your plants to grow without any issues such as nutrient deficiency or toxicity.

 

Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P) Potassium (K)
624

Samurai Terra Bloom

Just like Samurai Terra Grow, this product provides a unique NPK ratio to allow your plants to grow without any problems. Samurai Terra Bloom contains a balanced mixture that it’s easier for your plants to absorb, resulting in improved bud growth and excellent harvests.

 

Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P) Potassium (K)
426

 

Here’s the table for photo cannabis plants in soil, despite being quite simple to use, always remember to check the pH of your water before mixing the nutrient solution to avoid nutrient lockout.

Also, have in mind that due to being mineral, it’s essential you respect the pH range recommended by the manufacturer; Shogun advises adjusting the nutrient solution according to the substrate you’re growing in but keeping it in the 5.5-6.5 range.

3. Shogun Fertilizers For Coco

Now for those growing in Coco fiber, Shogun offers a more relatable approach with a two-part fertilizer for the vegetative stage and another one for the flowering stage, designed to provide high-grade nutrients in the right amount.

Samurai Coco A+B

Samurai Coco A+B contains top-quality ingredients that maximize plant performance when growing in coco fiber, while also providing two unique ingredients developed by Shogun.

 

Shogun usage guide: coco

Samurai Coco contains SmartZen and AquaZen which provide bigger yields and overall healthier roots.
 

SmartZen which enhances nutrient absorption, thus resulting in up to 8% bigger yields, and AquaZen which ensures an even distribution of the nutrient solution, resulting in better root development.

 

Coco A 
Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P) Potassium (K)
3.900

 

Coco B 
Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P) Potassium (K)
1.82.14.6

 

Have in mind that the following feeding schedule has been designed for soft water, if your water has more than 200ppm you can look for the hard water feeding schedule online or make adjustments as you please, just make sure you keep an eye on your plants to see how they react.

Remember that you should not use both Sumo products, you will have to choose one or the other based on what you prefer or what you can find, also, make sure there’s 20-40% runoff with each watering to help maintain the proper EC levels.

4. Shogun Fertilizers For Hydroponics

Now for hydroponic growers, Shogun offers two-part fertilizer for the vegetative stage and another one for the flowering stage, both providing the macro and micronutrients your plants need to grow healthy while also containing the SmartZen maximizer for abundant harvests.

Samurai Hydrogrow A+B

Hydrogrow is a two-part fertilizer designed for the vegetative stage when growing hydroponically, providing a precise NPK ratio for ideal plant growth while including the SmartZen maximizer that can increase yields up to 8%.

 

Shogun usage guide: hydro

Use Hydrogrow A+B for the vegetative stage and Hydrobloom A+B for the flowering stage when growing in hydroponic setups.
 

This product contains a specific NPK for hydroponic growers, just remember that your plants may need a little boost (or less nutrients) depending on the growing conditions and specific strain so always keep an eye out on your garden.

 

Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P) Potassium (K)
6.22.36

Samurai Hydrobloom A+B

Just like Samurai Hydrogrow, Samurai Hydrobloom contains a meticulous NPK ratio and the SmartZen maximizer but due to being for the flowering stage, contains less nitrogen and more phosphorus to avoid nutrient toxicities.

 

Nitrogen (N)Phosphorus (P) Potassium (K)
4.13.46

 

When growing hydroponically you’ll be changing it up a bit, due to the pipes clogging if the fertilizers aren’t 100% water-soluble, you’ll be using Hydrogrow and Hydrobloom along with Sumo Active Boost, which it’s better for hydro growers due to not spoiling for up to 14 days in your reservoir.

Shogun usage guide: photos in hydro

 

For the best results possible, make sure you pay attention to the following recommendations:

  • Allow 10-40% runoff each day to keep the EC in the root zone within range;
  • Always add the same amount of parts A and B;
  • If you’re growing in a recirculating system change the nutrient solution every 1-2 weeks.

5. What About Autoflowers?

Well, for autoflowers you’ll be following a similar feeding to the schedule for photos in soil but due to Shogun fertilizers being mineral-based, you’ll have to start with a lower amount and increase it gradually to avoid nutrient burn.

Shogun usage guide: autoflowers in soil

 

Remember that this is the minimum recommended dose so depending on your growing conditions and the specific strain you’re growing, you may have to increase the nutrient dose according to how your plants react.

6. In Conclusion

Shogun offers several high-quality fertilizer lines for all types of substrate, each one with a specific NPK ratio that guarantees optimum plant growth in either soil, coco, hydro or aeroponics, just make sure you respect the recommended pH range to avoid deficiencies.
