Foliar Spray Recipes (clones to mothers)?

New here, been growing for a yearish on my own. Longer under supervision of people smarter than me.

Here's the question - does anyone have a specific recipe they use for foliar? Will you share?

My specific use case is twofold:

- Uppotting clones from rockwool cubes to cups, then to 3 gal (coco/perlite) - they will be fed 600 ppm clonex from time to time, nothing else until uppotted. Then General Hydro

- Rapid vegetative growth for the above plants to become healthy mothers and then deliver vigorous clones

I'm not flowering at all. With that in mind, I'd like to hear from more experienced people about what they use. Currently my mix goes something like this:

5:2 Humic/Fulvic : Kelp
1 yucca extract
.5 Silica
appropriate CalMag

The above to about 400ppm, every 4-5 days. Considering adding nitrogen (urea) or potentially mixing in a bit of Grower's Honey Plant Based Amino Acids (bennies plus aminos/nitrogen).

Thoughts?

I also love the Ful-Power + kelp, and regularly use neem+silica during veg. I highly recommend spraying your plants with Southern Ag Biological Fungicide, or one of the many products with bacillus amyloliquefaciens as the active ingredient, I'm a true believer in its ability to prevent many fungual issues. I also water all my seedlings with it-its great at preventing damping off and root rot too, in any medium. Aloe is also good to feed clones, I use it instead of any cloning or rapid rooting type products-i use it either fresh from the plant or the preservative free juice during the winter. I also add a teaspoon/liter to my foliar sprays instead of yucca. Earlier this year I took 30 quick and dirty cuttings from an elderberry bush and stuck them in ziploc baggies with a little perlite, moistened them with aloe water, breathed into the bags to puff them up, sealed them, stuck under a 2 bulb t5 and came back a week later and 100% had rooted-insane root systems. I thought for sure they would have rotted. Anyway, I'm sold on aloe lol.

You have got to consider the nutes they are already in sure Foilar is grand,

and the plant will feed first of the leaf before root supplied nute

the real issue at least for me is the spray nozzle blocking with suspended nute

many foilars receipes are on the net

good luck

Alll you need is Foliar 16 40ml a G...Neem oil 30ml a G... makes wonders you will notices in 3 days way different.....I’ve ran through liquid karma ,kelp,b1 supplements all of it ,,,bottom line keep it simple ,,,,,now kelp in flower is natural plant hardener...

LAB 4ml/gal
SST (barley/oat/corn) 4ml/gal
Bokashi 1/3c/gal
Big 6 (buildAsoil) .5g/gal
Agsil16 1/2tsp/gal
Worm Castings 1tbl/gal
~~~~~ an extra if you want but not needed...
IMO#2 1/4-1/2tbl/gal


Brew 12-24hr....
add another dose of LAB and SST if you'd like before spraying....

wear a mask when you spray if you use the IMO#2 in your brew...
<3


I hit all my plants almost daily (unless in late flower) with
LAB 4ml/gal
SST 4ml/gal
Big 6 1/4g/gal
no brew needed but is nice... lay off the sugars to keep pest and mold control... the LAB and the enzymes in the SST as well as the EM-1 in the Bokashi helps control pests and mold

Triacontanol 1.5ppm, Aminos, Kelp/Humic blend, polysorbate20/tween20 for veg.

Alternating with 0.5ppm Brassinolide, aminos, Kelp/Humic, Tween20 for veg.

For flower I always use Triacontanol 5-30ppm, Aminos, tween20

Before entering flower I like to use BAP on established strains. The tolerance for it is very strain dependent. Had one crazy cross that tolerated over 150ppm when everything else got toasted at the same dosage.

ALWAYS test new recipes on small patches. Good luck!

Veg: alga-mic, bio-organix nano-breath, bio-organix k-amino, and sometimes casting extract.

Flower: bio-organix k-amino, keefir (labs), bio-organix nano-breath

Literally following the directions and I give a spray every 3rd day.

For problems using neem oil/organic dish soap. Keefir is a preventative but works great they seem to love it and "pray" always when I check after a treatment. I would do other LABS instead of from keefir if I was less lazy and made my own.

Any good labs recipes here?
@Wastei does the triacontanol help increase terps and oil content? Do you see a lot of difference? How often do you use brassinolide and does it really feel like the plant grows stronger/faster? It's a cell division hormone right?

Yes it does to some degree, plant overall health is most important for PGR's to work properly. Roots, stems and branches all develop earlier and stronger. Brassinolide is more for building good structure in veg. I also think it helps promoting more well developed flower sites(even though you never spray it in flower).

Triacontanol is amazing for many things. As a destresser at transplant and root promoter in veg. It enhances flower production, photosynthesis and phototropism. It also enchances energy storage, nutrient requirement usually go up a bit after a foliar spray of Triacontanol.

Labs test has shown Triacontanol to increase oil and vitamin C production in plants. I think it up regulates upto 9k positive gene expressions if I remember that correctly.

You see positive effects after about 3 days after spraying foliar.

Thanks for clarifying about those two. I'm definitely going to incorporate them moving forward. Much appreciated! :)
