Description

Down To Earth Kelp Meal is an all-natural, organic fertilizer derived from the ocean’s abundant kelp seaweed. This sustainably harvested kelp meal is an excellent source of essential nutrients and growth-enhancing compounds that promote healthy plant development, increase resistance to stress, and improve overall crop yields.

Key Features:

1. Organic and Sustainable: Down To Earth Kelp Meal is made from 100% organic kelp seaweed, sustainably sourced from the pristine waters of the ocean. It is free from synthetic additives and GMOs.
2. Nutrient-Rich: Kelp seaweed is naturally rich in essential plant nutrients, including micronutrients, growth hormones (auxins and cytokinins), vitamins, and minerals. These components nourish plants at every stage of growth.
3. Improved Plant Growth: Regular application of kelp meal can stimulate root development, increase flower and fruit production, and enhance plant vigor, resulting in healthier, more productive plants.
4. Enhanced Stress Resistance: The natural growth regulators and antioxidants in kelp seaweed help plants cope with environmental stressors, such as drought, extreme temperatures, and disease.
5. Versatile Application: Kelp meal can be used on a wide variety of plants, including vegetables, fruit trees, flowers, and ornamental shrubs, making it suitable for both home gardeners and professional growers.
6. Soil Conditioning: Kelp meal not only feeds your plants but also enriches the soil by improving its structure and enhancing microbial activity.

Benefits:

• Increased Yields: Kelp meal promotes larger harvests and improved crop quality by enhancing flowering and fruiting.
• Natural and Safe: As an organic product, it poses no harm to the environment, beneficial insects, or wildlife.
Improved Soil Health: The use of kelp meal helps maintain healthy, fertile soil, ensuring long-term productivity.
• Sustainability: Kelp is a renewable resource, making this fertilizer an eco-friendly choice.
• Simple Application: Easily applied by mixing with soil during planting or as a top dressing for existing plants.

Applications:

Down To Earth Kelp Meal is suitable for various applications, including:

• Vegetable Gardens: Promotes healthy growth in vegetables like tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers.
• Fruit Trees: Enhances fruit production and tree vitality in orchards.
• Flower Beds: Encourages vibrant blooms and strong, disease-resistant plants.
• Indoor Plants: Supports the growth of houseplants, improving their resilience.
• Lawns: Promotes lush, green turf when used as part of a comprehensive lawn care program.

Usage Instructions:

• General Application: Incorporate 1-2 pounds of kelp meal per 100 square feet into the soil before planting. • For established plants, use 1-2 tablespoons sprinkled around the base of each plant and lightly scratched into the soil.
• Frequency: Apply every 4-6 weeks throughout the growing season, typically from spring to early fall.
• Watering: Water the area after application to help the kelp nutrients move into the root zone.
• Adjust to Soil Test: Soil testing can provide specific guidance on how much kelp meal to apply based on your soil’s nutrient needs.

Down To Earth Kelp Meal is an eco-conscious, natural fertilizer that enriches your soil and promotes vigorous plant growth. Its versatility and ease of use make it a valuable addition to any gardener’s toolkit.

INFORMATION QUESTIONS

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is Hydroponics?

Hydroponics is the science of growing plants without soil. The plants thrive on the nutrient-water solution alone. The growing medium merely acts as a support for the plants and their root systems while the solution passes freely. The growing medium, if any, is totally inert.

What types of plants grow best hydroponically?

Anything can be grown hydroponically, but some plants prove to be more space efficient. Some plants we suggest are tomatoes, sweet peppers, hot chilies, lettuce, spinach, squash, cucumbers, broccoli, beans, snow peas, herbs and flowers of all types.

Can you REALLY get better yields/quicker growth?

Absolutely. The plants, when receiving everything they need, tend to be healthier, faster growing and generally more productive. You can expect 30% faster growth with many crops.

What are the watering cycle timelines hydroponic systems?

Once the reservoir is filled with nutrients, it is time to put your hydro system to work! The ease of hydroponics is automation – automation is achieved by putting the pump on a timer according to your watering needs. The watering cycle depends on growth stage, growing medium and hydroponic system. In an ebb and flow or drip system with rockwool as the medium, seedlings, clones and plants in the early vegetative stage require watering only once a day for 15-30 minutes (twice a day for higher temps). Mature, flowering and fruiting plants require a heavier feed and can be fed once a day for 30 minutes (twice a day for higher temps). Typically soiless mixes and coco fiber can be watered for about 15 minutes twice a day, and can be adjusted for heavier feeding during the flowering and fruiting stage or higher temps. ViaStone, Hydroton, Grow Rocks, and Silicate mediums need to be watered more frequently – a constant drip for drip systems, and about 15-30 minutes every 3 hours for ebb and flow systems and can be adjusted for heavier feeding during the flowering and fruiting stage or higher temps. Aeroponic systems require frequent watering cycles; 30-60 seconds every few minutes or a constant spray.

What do I need to test pH? How do I test pH?

pH has a range from 0 (acidic) – 14 (alkaline), with 7 being neutral. A proper hydroponic pH range is between 5.5 to 6.2 for most hydroponic crops. For specific crop pH, check out our Plant Guide. pH must remain within the proper range for good plant health, disease resistance, and proper nutrient uptake. pH is maintained by adding pH Up and pH Down to the nutrient solution. For more information, see the Testssection of our site.

How will the flavor compare to my outdoor grown, organic produce?

The taste may be even better! This is simply due to the fact that the hydroponically grown plants are getting everything they need, when they need it. Don’t be fooled by “hot house” produce grown commercially. The grower’s primary concern is shipability and storage, not flavor. When you grow your own vegetables at home, you can expect nothing less than excellent results. Plus, hydroponically grown produce has the added benefit of a longer shelf life.
