British Organic Bio Carbon Base
British Organic Bio Carbon Base is a concentrated, 100% natural, easy-to-use nutrient and energy source for both your plants and the beneficial microbes that are essential to organics. Designed to be applied alongside Fish Base from the B.O.B range at varying ratios throughout a crop, it works on the classic “feed the soil to feed the plant” organic growing principle. As the name suggests, the product contains plenty of carbon compounds – these are used by the microherd to expand their population and colonise your growing media, leading to a wide range of root health and nutrient uptake benefits.
- Concentrated, organic & easy-to-use nutrient
- Designed to feed the soil to feed your plants
- Excellent alongside Fish Base – run both together for best results
- Contains lots of carbon compounds loved by microbes
- Boosts root health and improves nutrient uptake
Why Grow Organically?
The beauty of organics is that the plant works with the soil and the microherd to create a perfect relationship, which encourages the optimum uptake of nutrients. Compared with some other forms of growing and fertilisation, the natural approach allows the plant to express its true genetic potential – so it will take what it wants and grow according to its genetics, rather than being steered to certain traits by selective use of feed and additives. This is particularly appealing for heritage varieties, where you don’t want to alter taste or appearance too much and want to stay true to the properties of the plant.
Why Grow With Carbon Base?
Not only does British Organic Bio Carbon Base supply key nutrients direct to the plant, it also provides a fantastic food source for beneficial organisms in your soil that endeavour to boost root health and improve nutrient uptake.
Whilst still effective when deployed as a standalone product, we highly recommend that you use B.O.B Carbon Base in conjunction with B.O.B Fish Base because they have complimentary nutrient profiles and are designed to be deployed together. By varying the NPK ratio between the two feeds over an entire crop, you can steer plant growth based on the stage of development, increasing nitrogen in veg and then switching to favour potassium and phosphorus in flowering. Apply B.O.B Carbon Base from start to finish at anything between 0.5-4ml per Litre depending upon the growth stage. Please see the B.O.B feed chart for full dosage guidance.
Phosphorus (as P2O5) 1.0%
Potassium (as K2O) 5.0%
Organic Carbon 15%
Use British Organic Bio Carbon Base from cuttings to late flowering at a dilution rate of 0.5ml to 4.0ml per litre of water - refer to feed chart for specific doses.
