Kelp Flakes are made from 100% pure sundried Ecklonia maxima milled to a 2-3mm dried flake.
Commonly known as brown seaweed, it is gathered on the West Coast of South Africa after being fed by the nutrient rich cold Benguela current that runs north from the Antarctic.
Ecklonia Maxima contains micro, and macro nutrients, Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K) and the full range of amino acids. As well as this, natural growth hormones, auxins and cytokinins which are present, are easily taken up by land plants. Kelp Flakes are a great organic amendment to prepare your super soil.
As an application to improve soil quality, Kelp Flakes build up the humus structure of the soil and provides vitamins and micro and macro nutrients as an effective crop feed. It breaks down over time resulting in long lasting plant food for healthier soil and plants.
Perhaps the most important aspect of kelp is the growth hormones. Kelp contains ample quantities of auxins, gibberellins, and cytokinins. All growth hormones play a part in how a plant functions, and are more accurately called growth regulators.
Kelp has very high amounts of a particular hormone, cytokinin. Cytokinins are responsible for cell division, cell enlargement, differentiation of cells, development of chloroplasts as well as a delay in ageing.
When kelp is used regularly you will notice that the overall health of the plant will increase and that when applied at certain times major growth will occur.
Great Source of Potassium (K)
A major nutrient group (NPK) needed in the whole life cycle of the plants in the vegetative and flowering stage.
