Fantastic finish to your fruits and flowers before flushing
Ripen by GHE is a comprehensive plant nutrient used during the late flowering stage of the plant. It is specifically designed to speed up and enhance the ripening process, while increasing the content in active principles of medicinal, aromatic and culinary plants.
This type of formulation is referred to, in the greenhouse industry, as a ‘forcing solution‘.
For all growing methods: hydroponics and soil. Late flowering nutrient
Ripen is a mix of refined mineral salts and buffers, formulated by our laboratories with the greatest precision. Indeed, at this stage, accuracy is of the utmost importance: the plant, at the end of its life, is generally more fragile and the assimilation process is greatly reduced when compared with the vegetative phase.
Ripen acts at different levels
It gives the plant a strong signal that it is coming to the end of its life. The plant reacts by speeding the ripening process, in a last effort to spread its genes.
It forces the plant to reinforce its defences and thus increase its active principles.
It brings to the plants all the mineral salts they need, in a form easy to assimilate.
In case of a previous accumulation of nitrate or microelements, it helps metabolise these residues, which will improve the taste of the crop.
This nutrient has many properties:
Outdoors, it enables you to quickly harvest a crop, before it is spoiled by a cold and humid weather.
Indoors, it helps you harmonise the end of the cycle by speeding up the ripening of the slowest plants.
In case of a severe infestation of fungi or insects, it allows you to accelerate the natural cycle and get something out of a crop otherwise completely lost.
It increases the active principle in medicinal plants. When you are growing a plant for its medicinal properties, this is the nutrient of choice to boost the concentration in the final product.
Ripen by GHE is a superb late bloom feed that has the perfect nutrient formulation for the end of flowering/fruiting. Due to its unique composition, Ripen accelerates the final stage of flowering to provide a fantastic finish to your fruits and flowers before flushing. It can also be used to speed up the flowering process for an early finish - which proves very useful if you're struggling from a mite infestation or pest problem. A complete replacement for your normal bloom nutrient, Ripen is a pure flowering feed which we highly recommend in all growing media. Use at 4-5mls per Litre for 2 weeks maximum prior to desired harvesting date.
Ingredients : Ripen™ is an especially formulated mixture of chemicals that are mixed in proportions toassure excellent plant nutrition. The chemical identity of the compounds and exact proportions used in the mixture are a trade secret, however, they are derived from : Phosphoric Acid, Potassium Phosphate, Magnesium Phosphate, Potassium Chloride, Magnesium Sulfate, Potassium sulfate, Ammonium Sulfate, Potassium Nitrate, and Magnesium Carbonate.
