What is "N-P or K"?:
Nitrogen (N) - Nitrogen is necessary for lush, green, leafy growth. An excess, however, will promote vegetative growth at the expense of the fruit or flowers. Nitrogen is generally applied at higher concentrations in early growth stages.
Phosphorus (P) - Phosphorus will promote big, bright bloom and enhanced fruit production. Phosphorus is essential for fruiting, flowering, strong root growth and quality seed development.
Potassium (K) - Potassium, or potash, helps produce strong sturdy plants and quality fruit. Potassium naturally increases a plants resistance to all types of stress and is vital for cell growth and carbohydrate metabolism.
