Final Part® is a complete late flowering nutrient/stimulant requiring no additional boosters. It increases flowering and production of active principles, and eliminates nutrient excess.
Final Part® acts in 3 ways:
It sends the plant a strong signal that it is coming to the end of its life; this prompts the plant to accelerate the ripening process.
It forces the plant to strengthen its defences and thus increase essential oil and active principle production.
It delivers all the mineral salts the plants need in a form that is easy to assimilate: in case of a previous accumulation of nitrate or microelements, this helps metabolize residues, which improves taste.
As a “forcing solution“, Final Part® can be used in any circumstance where you need to control or enhance ripening, and at the end of every flowering/fruiting cycle of annual flowers and fruits to maximise yield and flavour intensity.
Outdoors, Final Part® enables you to quickly harvest a crop before it is spoiled by cold and damp weather. Indoors, it helps you harmonise the end of the grow cycle by speeding up the ripening of the slowest plants or varieties. And in case of a severe infestation of fungi or insects, it can allow you to accelerate the natural cycle and recover something out of a crop that would otherwise be completely lost.
In high drainage substrate (e.g clay pebbles or bare root): Use Ripen for around 10 days (start 12 days before harvest) – match your last EC (up to 5ml/L, max EC 2.6).
In medium drainage substrate (e.g coco-perlite mix): Use Ripen for around 15 days (start 17 days before harvest) – match your last EC (up to 5ml/L, Max EC 2.6).
In low drainage substrate (e.g soil or potting compost): Use Ripen for around 21 days (start 23 days before harvest) – match your last EC (up to 4ml/L, max EC 2.0).
Expert growers can use Ripen to manipulate water stress to maximise active principal concentration, and minimise splitting in soft fruit culture: target EC 2.6mS in hydro and target EC 2.0mS in soil.
To promote sugaring and give your crop a final flavour boost, we recommend using GHE FloraKleen® for a maximum of two days in hydroponics, and five in soil. Flushing more than this after Ripen reduces crop quality and risks water saturation.
Pro tip: Using FloraKleen for two days before Ripen to condition and break down mineral salt build ups in your substrate delivers Ripen results even faster.
