Bean Stalk Absolute Flower Fertilizer 3 Lb (11-3-17) Absolute Flower should be applied to plants 90 days prior to the intended harvest date. It is applied at a rate of 15-20 grams per gallon of soil and can be either sub-dressed or fully integrated into the soil. Absolute Flower is best used as a total replacement for all other flowering fertilizers or in conjunction with both Beanstalk's K-BOOST (potassium loader) and FORTIFY (calcium/magnesium fortifying agent). It is recommended to use a higher rate of 20 grams per gallon if flowering in small containers. Be sure to leave room in your pot if additional feedings via sub-dressing become necessary!
