For which growth phase of your plant are you looking for a product?
The growth cycle of the plant can be divided in several growth phases, namely: Rooting phase, Growth phase, Early Bloom phase, Bloom phase and Late Bloom or Ripening phase. The entire growth cycle of a plant takes between 8 to 12 weeks, depending on the personal preferences of the grower.
Once the seed is germinated into a seedling the young plant is ready to be placed into any kind of substrate. Next to seeds it’s also possible to start the growth process with a clone from a mature plant. You can add a root stimulator which will help the roots grow faster. The choice of substrate determines if it’s necessary to add nutrition to the seed or clone from the start.
For example, our Janeco-Light-Mix contains enough nutrition for the first two weeks. Depending on which substrate you use, you can start with basic nutrition of your choice and apply it throughout the entire growth cycle. Note that a clone is already more developed in comparison to a seedling, so it needs less time to develop.
The second phase is named the Growth phase, when the plant starts to grow and expand its root system. Adding nutrition, stimulators or boosters now will help the plant to develop. Scientifically speaking, Nitrogen is the most essential element during the growth phase, as it helps the plant develop a strong and healthy stem and foliage.
Ready to bloom phase
The Ready to Bloom Phase is the transition period from Growth to Bloom. During this phase, you can begin to reduce the booster dosage and start to provide a bloom stimulator.
Early Bloom phase
This is the moment when the plant starts to produce flowers. You can start adding Blossom builder Liquid or Bloombastic now, up to the end of the growth cycle. During this phase, Phosphorous and Potassium are essential elements that help the roots and flowers to grow and develop.
Late Bloom phase or Ripening phase
In the last week of every growth cycle the substrate should be rinsed to get rid of all needless ballast. At the end, the plant has matured and is ready to be harvested.

Do you cultivate indoors or outdoors?
As a cultivator you need to make the choice whether you would like to grow indoors or outdoors. The advantage of growing indoors is that you don’t have any influences from the weather. When you don’t have the space to grow indoors, you can grow outdoors e.g. in a vegetable garden. When growing outdoors you’re dependent on the weather conditions, this can influence your growing time.
On what kind of surface do you cultivate?
Each plant starts to grow in a certain kind of cultivation medium or ‘substrate’. There are several substrates which you can use to cultivate. Though the most common ones are (fertilized) Soil, Coco or Hydro. We all of them in our assortment, in several variations. The choice of substrate depends on the personal preference of each cultivator. There is no right or wrong.
Growing on this type of substrate is perhaps the most well-known method of cultivation. The elementary components of our soil substrates are white and black peat. Peat has the characteristic to bind trace elements. Despite some disadvantages, the use of soil has a lot of benefits.
Before the Coconut fibres can be used as a substrate they have been properly washed, steamed and buffered to get rid of needless ballast like sea salt. Coco has the perfect structure to retain the nutrient solution easily, allowing the plant to easily absorb it. Coco substrate also remains fairly airy, so the roots will receive a lot of oxygen.
According to a lot of growers, the use of a Hydro substrate is the most professional method of cultivation. Generally, this type of substrate is used in combination with recirculation water systems. Hydro substrate is very airy which provides excellent opportunities to develop a strong root system, and has an excellent drainage.
