The Do's and Don'ts of Foliar Feeding

Within the hydroponics industry, there are two main types of feeding regimes: organic and non-organic nutrients. Both these feeding systems pass nutrients into a plant’s vascular system via the roots. There is, however, another way into the plants vascular system. A secret way in.

This secret way is foliar feeding. A commonly overlooked method used in vegetative and flowering stages, foliar feeding allows for nutrients to pass into the vascular system through direct leaf and stem absorption.

Foliar feeding can be a powerful ally to supercharging your plants ready for bumper yields. However, there is a catch. If it is not carried out correctly, it can have such a detrimental effect on your plants that they could be dead within 24 hours.

So, let’s have a look at the dos and don'ts of foliar feeding in the vegetation and flowering stages of your plant's life.

Foliar Feeding: The Don’ts

Don’t Use a Foliar Spray When Your Lights Are On

If you are growing in an environment with a powerful artificial light source, the last thing you would want to do is to cover your plant in a liquid while the light is on. The plant cannot absorb the freshly sprayed liquid fast enough.

The first thing that’s going to happen is that the liquid will act as a lens, amplifying the heat from the lights and burning the leaf. Second, the plant will choke. Usually, when a plant gets too hot, its stomata open to release heat, gas, and water to cool down. However, it will not be able to breathe or self-regulate if the leaf is covered in a liquid that is causing its surface to burn.

Don’t Use a Foliar Spray if it Will be Detrimental to Your Growing Environment

Foliar feeding increases the humidity within the growing environment. While this is great while your plant is in its vegetative stage, it can be a problem when your plant is in flower. During the flowering stage, your humidity is already high. Environment is such an important factor in modern hydroponics that I personally wouldn’t do anything to mess it up.

Don’t Use an Overly Concentrated Foliar Spray

When using a foliar spray, make sure you read the instructions twice and stick to the dilution rates on the label. In fact, I’d even recommend over-diluting the foliar spray just to make sure that you don’t use a mix that could be too strong for your plant (after all, all plants are different).

Foliar Feeding: The Dos

Do Use a Foliar Spray at Lights Out

The best time to use a foliar spray is at lights out. When a plant enters a dark period, its leaves take around 15 minutes to relax. It’s during this time—right after the lights turn off and before the leaves relax—that the stem and leaves are in their most effective absorption period.

Spraying your plant at this point also means that it has the maximum amount of time to absorb the nutrients. If you were to spray your plants too close to lights on, the plant could still be wet when the lights come on. This would have the same negative effects on the plant as if the foliar spray was applied when the lights were on as discussed previously.

Do Use Proper Technique When Foliar Spraying

Cover the plant’s leaves and stem with a light spray. Remember, less is always more as your plants need to absorb all this liquid before the lights come back on. If the leaves are dripping wet, you have used too much. It may take you a few attempts to get it right.

A great tip is to use a foliar sprayer that can be adjusted to expel a fine mist. Again, the finer the mist, the better it will be for the plant to absorb. There are also spray bottles that can be used upside down, which is great for getting into tight spaces and spraying the bottom of leaves.

Do Use Foliar Absorption to Your Advantage

Foliar sprays are a great way to tackle nutrient deficiencies. For example, if your plant starts to show signs of calcium and magnesium deficiency while you are running a nutrient-rich feeding regime, you could look to use a cal-mag foliar spray at lights off every five days to rectify the issue. This way you don’t have to change your standard feeding regime.

This is especially useful if there are multiple plants in your system and only a few are showing signs of a deficiency. The deficient plants can be directly treated with a foliar spray without jeopardizing the other plants feeding schedule.

There is a great range of foliar nutrient feeds out there. Some reduce internode spacing in the vegetative stage by creating more branches, some increase the number of flowering sites while the plant is in the flower stage, and some help with the overall health of your plant by combating deficiencies, pests, and diseases. The list goes on.

So, the next time you grow, consider using the secret way in to help take your plants to the next level.

Foliar Feeding

By: HTG Supply on 01/12/2018

Millions of years of evolution have produced incredible botanical adaptations that contribute to the amazing tenacity plants have for survival in the natural environment. The most basic requirements for plant growth can be considered common knowledge, however, plants have other lesser-known abilities that can be used to our advantage in the indoor garden. For instance, most people know plants absorb nutrients through their roots, but even long-time growers may be unaware that plants can also absorb certain nutrients through their leaves. In the gardening world this is referred to as foliar feeding, and when used as a growing practice, this technique can pay off in a number of ways. This week, we’ll cover how foliar feeding works and explain the do’s and don’t of foliar feeding. And, don’t forget the coupon code of the week for savings on foliar feeding gear!


What is Foliar Feeding?

Foliar feeding is the term used to describe applying a fertilizer or nutrient solution directly to the foliage or leaves of plants. Foliar feeding can be accomplished through the entire garden with a misting system such as is done in greenhouses or applied to individual plants by simply spraying the plants by hand. Nutrients contained within the foliar spray can then be absorbed and distributed to the rest of the plant through the vascular system, just like nutrients are carried by the arteries in humans. The idea of foliar feeding actually dates back before the turn of the 20th century, however, the concept was first proven to occur in the 1950’s. Using a foliar spray containing radioactive phosphorous and potassium, scientists at Michigan State University Department of Horticulture were able to observe the movement and usage of the irradiated nutrients through the plants using a Geiger counter. It was this research that paved the way for the development of the foliar feeding techniques we use today.

How Does Foliar Feeding Work?

Understanding some of the mechanics behind foliar feeding is important for getting the most out of your foliar regimen. Most nutrients can be absorbed through stomata, which are the small pore-like structures found on leaves. The most notable function of stomata is they can open and close to facilitate CO2, oxygen and water exchange with the atmosphere (acting similar in fashion to nostrils in humans). However, stomata can also allow the passage of nutrients, particularly when open. While stomata play an important role in foliar feeding, they are only responsible for some of the foliar nutrient absorption. An up-close examination of leaf surfaces reveals a landscape of other features that help to facilitate foliar feeding including a network of cracks in the outer waxy leaf layer called the cuticle. These cracks and other features such as specialized cell structures at the bases of trichomes called aqueous pores also contribute significantly to nutrient absorption. Once absorbed into the leaf, nutrients can be transported through the vascular system to roots, flowers, fruits, etc. for storage or use.

Foliar Feeding Benefits

Before we break down why it works, it’s important to note that foliar feeding should generally be used as a complementary feeding technique, meaning you should use foliar applications in addition to your soil or hydroponic fertilizer application. Plant roots are organs specifically adapted to take in nutrients, and many plants have symbiotic relationships with fungi in the root zone to help them absorb nutrients in the quantities needed. Leaves are organs that function primarily in photosynthesis. You should think of foliar feeding as a way to get a quick dose of nutrition to the foliage rather than a sustained source of nutrients for overall growth. While foliar feeding isn’t a standalone fertilizing method, it is an incredibly effective way to supercharge growth and yields. So, what makes it work so well? There are at least two benefits you gain from foliar feeding: the first is ease of absorption, and the second is speed of absorption.

Ease of Absorption – Nutrient solutions applied to soil or grow mediums are subject to a variety of factors that can prevent them from being absorbed by the roots including the pH of the grow medium as well as the presence of mineral buildup. Medium pH affects nutrient solubility which can limit nutrient uptake, while mineral buildup can cause nutrients to bind to other elements already in the soil, thereby restricting nutrient availability to the plant. Foliar application of nutrients is, for the most part, free of these obstacles. The result is that nutrients applied via foliar sprays can be absorbed easily, as much as 10 times the rate of root zone applications.

Speed of Absorption – Nutrients involved with photosynthesis will be able to get to leaves faster via foliar spraying than if applied to the soil/medium. It can take hours or days for nutrients to move from the grow medium to the roots, through the stem and into the leaves. In other words, foliar feeding is a great way to quickly get rid of any deficiencies. For example, in situations where poor soil conditions have led to nutrient deficiencies, a foliar spray will provide a much faster means of correcting the issue than a standard application. It also allows nutrient deficiencies to be addressed without the risk of overwatering in situations where soil is already wet or moist but the plant needs more nutrients. Remember – the number one problem people have growing indoors is they over water their plants.

Yet another benefit to foliar feeding is with clones. Clones do not have roots, the organs used to absorb nutrients. Foliar feeding clones has been shown to improve cloning success and cut down on clone development time because it provides the delicate clones nutrients to maximize growth. A foliar spray applied to early clones can deliver a much-needed nutrient boost before roots have even formed.

How to Foliar Feed

Foliar feeding can be incredibly beneficial to your plants when done correctly, but get it wrong and it can also be detrimental to plant health. This might sound intimidating, but it’s really not that hard once you have an understanding of the do’s and don’ts. Basically, it just comes down to mixing and applying your foliar spray properly.

How to Make Foliar Fertilizer

Almost any liquid hydroponic or soil nutrient product can be used in a foliar spray. Even soluble supplemental products that include beneficial microorganisms can be applied as part of a foliar feeding program. The first half of the foliar feeding equation involves the concentration of fertilizer used. One of the most important things to remember when mixing foliar feed is that nutrients can be absorbed efficiently through foliar applications. Therefore, nutrients should be mixed at a much lower concentration for foliar sprays than they are for general applications. Many products will provide a foliar mixing rate, but if the particular nutrient you’re using doesn’t, the general rule is to mix at no more than 50% of the recommended soil/hydroponic dose, and perhaps 25% the dose the first time you try using the nutrient in a foliar spray. For example, if the recommended usage is 20 ml per gallon, you would only use 5-10ml or less per gallon in your foliar spray. Finally, adding a surfactant or wetting agent to your mix will help to decrease the surface tension of the foliar solution which will improve the absorption rate of your spray. Most foliar specific products are formulated to include surfactants while wetting agents like Advanced Nutrients Wet Betty can be added if you’re mixing your own spray.

How to Apply Foliar Fertilizer

The other half of foliar feeding formula is properly applying the spray itself. First, foliar sprays should always be tested before applying to the entire crop. It can be tempting to just get the job done, but spot testing on a few leaves and giving it a day or two to see the results can prevent problems from occurring in the entire garden. Remember when using foliar fertilizer, less is also more when applying your foliar spray. In this case, we’re referring to both the amount of spray applied and the frequency of applications. Foliar spray should only be administered modestly (before it begins to run off leaves), and usually only once per week for general purpose feeding. In special cases such as the treatment of nutrient deficiencies, foliar spray could be applied more frequently, but special care should be taken to avoid overfeeding, i.e., treat calcium deficiency with a calcium-product foliar spray only. Although spraying can be done with a simple spray bottle, using a fine mist spray bottle or sprayer will apply the spray much more effectively, improving absorption and reducing the amount of spray that will need to be used.

Beyond delivery of the spray, timing is also an important part of applying a foliar feed. Spraying should typically be coordinated with sundown or lights-off in the indoor garden. This will prevent foliage from being burned by light magnified through solution droplets. It also reduces evaporation, which allows more of the spray to be absorbed. The growth phase of the plant when foliar feeding should also be considered. While weekly foliar feeding can continue right up until harvest for some plants, this may be undesirable for others. The general recommendation is to cease foliar fertilizer applications after the second week of the blooming phase. This will ensure the end product is not affected by any residual minerals.


As beneficial as foliar feeding is, it can also be rendered largely ineffective or even become detrimental as a result of undesirable environmental factors, primarily high humidity. If the humidity level in the garden is already toward the high side (80% humidity or higher), foliar feeding will be less effective as plants will be less able to absorb the spray. Foliar feeding in high-humidity conditions can also promote the onset of fungal pathogens. If you have a fungal problem in your garden, you may want to avoid foliar feeding. Fungus often thrives in a moist and warm environment, and if there is already a fungus in your garden, foliar spraying could make it easier for the spores to grow and the fungus to spread. If you notice grey or white spots forming on your leaves after you start to foliar spray, you should stop foliar application of nutrients.

Quick Recap

Following these guidelines will help to ensure foliar feeding success. Here’s a quick rundown of the do’s and don’ts again:


  • If foliar mixing is not specified, mix nutrients at ¼-½ the normal rate
  • Use foliar feeding as a complement to your regular feeding program
  • Foliar feed to treat nutrient deficiencies and jumpstart clones
  • Use a fine mist sprayer to apply spray evenly and effectively
  • Use a surfactant or wetting agent to improve absorption


  • Don’t apply foliar spray if you have any mold or fungi on the leaves.
  • Don’t apply foliar spray when the lights are on
  • Don’t drench your plants, a light and even mist is sufficient
  • Don’t apply spray without spot testing and observing for at least a full day
  • Don’t use foliar sprays where high humidity levels are a concern
  • Don’t apply foliar spray after 2 weeks into the blooming phase if there is risk of the final product being affected

To sum up, the ability of plants to absorb nutrients through their foliage provides us with a reliable mechanism to be used in our quest for bigger and better yields. There’s no question as to whether or not foliar feeding works, but there are many factors that can impact the effectiveness of the technique. While it’s not completely free of risk, the sweet rewards of foliar feeding can easily be obtained without issue by following a few simple rules. Above all else, mix and apply in moderation, and always be sure to test!

What Can You include in a Foliar Spray for a Hydroponic System?

If you want to try an easy and simple way to get the most from your plants, you really can’t go wrong with a good foliar spray. But what exactly goes into a foliar spray? Typically it is the same kind of essential nutrients that you would find in a reservoir. But if you want to get the full benefits, you should also consider what kind of supplements you want to add to your foliar spray. Balancing the right kind of nutrients and organic material ensures that you are getting the absolute best benefits from your nutrient solution. Here are few things people typically put their foliar spray to get the best results from this advanced feeding technique:

Beneficial Bacteria – If your plants are growing too sterile for their own good, you should probably invest in a hydroponic product that contains beneficial bacteria. These kinds of bacteria can “fix” atmospheric nitrogen so that it can be absorbed more easily for your plant, increase overall nutrient uptake, and ward off any harmful bacteria. Most people only use it in their primary nutrient solution, but it works well when added to a foliar spray as well. It will enhance the nutrient solution by making them more easily absorbed by the leaves.
It can also make the foliar feeding process much safer. By introducing all that extra moisture to your plants, you may risk encouraging the formation of harmful fungi. The presence of symbiotic bacteria can head this off by making conditions for these fungi less favorable.

Plant Boosters – Plant boosters aren’t just useful for your reservoir; they can also be extremely beneficial for use in your foliar spray. Most plant boosters contain one more or more B vitamins that can help encourage vigorous growth all the way to harvest. Unfortunately, if your plants are only receiving these vitamins through their root zone, they may not be absorbing these helpful supplements to their full potential. Adding them to your foliar spray helps optimize uptake, and bigger yields once it comes time to harvest.

Fish and Kelp – If you are looking for a more organic foliar spray, you can’t go wrong with either a fish or a kelp based fertilizer. Many organic hydroponic products offer a combination of these two fertilizers in single product.

Humic Acid – Humic acid is often added to foliar sprays to increase uptake. It is able to turn nutrients that otherwise cannot be absorbed the plant into forms that are more bio-available. It can even improve vitamin uptake, which makes it ideally suited for use with a B vitamin plant booster.

To get the most benefit from your foliar spray, you need to use it when the stomata, or pores on your leaves, are open. They are usually more open when the temperatures are a bit cooler in your grow room. You should also try alternating different foliar sprays on different days, so your plants can enjoy the benefits that come with each type.




Advanced Nutrients review. What I like to use and why.

How to Get the Most out of Your Foliar Fertilizer

When hydroponics gardeners want to give their plants the boost that they need in order to increase yield, the first choice they make usually is to apply a quality foliar fertilizer. This is entirely reasonable, as using a good foliar spray is perhaps the most cost effective way to give your plants the boost of nutrients that they need to grow to their full potential. But you would be doing both yourself and your plants a grave disservice if you did not learn every way in which you could make the most out of your foliar fertilizer. To make sure that you investment doesn’t go to waste, simply follow these simple extra steps.

Increase Humidity – While using a foliar fertilizer, your plants will benefit from an environment that is slightly cooler and slightly more humid than what your grow room may normally be. The idea is to allow as much of the foliar fertilizer to be absorbed into the plant as possible, and allow for as little as possible to be evaporated or transpired. With an increased humidity level and a temperature level kept below eighty degrees, you increase your odds of the nutrients being used by your plant, instead of simply dissipating into the air in your grow room.

Spray Your Leaves with Water Afterwards – After you initially use your foliar fertilizer, the spray will slowly dry up and leave a small nutrient residue around the leaves. To make certain that your leaves take up as many of the nutrients from your spray as possible, spray your leaves with water over the next couple of days. The water will combine with the residue and make it easier for your leaves to absorb the extra nutrients. As always, make sure that the water that you use is properly pH balanced. If you are using tap water, make sure it doesn’t contain too much chlorine to damage your plants.

Get the Undersides of Leaves Too – The reason foliar fertilization works is because leaves contain “stomata,” which are open pores that are primarily used for gas exchange. But when sprayed with a nutrient solution, these pores can also be used to absorb nutrients. The majority of the stomata are on the underside of the leaves, so you should make sure to spend extra time spraying that section. As you can imagine, the underside is also where the majority of the runoff occurs. So you would probably benefit from adding a sticking agent to your foliar spray.

Use a Fine Mist, Not a Stream – Find a spray bottle that allows you deliver the foliar fertilizer in the form of a very fine mist. This will help ensure more even and thorough applications. If your spray bottle is only able to deliver in a powerful, liquid stream you will dramatically increase runoff and less of the solution will be absorbed. If buying the bottle from your local garden supply company, make sure to ask the experts there if any given bottle can deliver the water with the consistency that you desire.
