Freedom Farms Formula 1
Freedom Farms Formula 1 Growing Medium allows more control over the nutrient profile in the substrate than with the fortified Classic blend. With the correct fertilization regime, Formula 1 produces faster plant growth than Freedom Farms’ other blends, due to its physical properties and type of fertilizer used… The ideal fertilizer for this soil is water soluble inorganic mineral nutrients.
F1 has no additional nutrients apart from their base amendment mixture. The performance of the blend depends on the application of available nutrients in the form of a balanced inorganic nutrient formulation. Application is required with the first watering and subsequent additions according to the plants’ requirements. A leaching requirement or runoff is necessary with every other nutrient application to avoid salt build-up. Water scheduling for this soil will require more regular watering when opting for fast growth.
– Ideal for container growing
– Indoor or Greenhouse cultivation
– High intensity production with automated fertigation
– Balanced nutrient solution input essential

Growing with a mineral nutrient range instead of an organic one is often chosen by growers, because the applied nutrients are instantly available to the plant when applied. This is not the case when using organic nutrients, as these nutrients first have to be broken down by microbes in the soil or substrate into a plant-available form before they can be taken up by the plants.
