Aloe420 Usage Protocols
Stage 00: Cloning Protocol – This will be used in the cannabis protocol
24 hours prior to taking the clones from the mother plant using an 8% solution with filtered water to completely saturate tops and bottoms of leaves, branches, and trunk/stems. Once cuttings have been taken, allow the stem portion of the harvested clones to sit in an 8% Aloe420 solution for 24 hours while keeping the humidity at 65%. Plant the clones into prepared rockwool or peat plugs and moisten as needed with plain RO water while keeping the humidity at 65%. Roots should be evident within 7 to 12 days.
Stage 00: Preseason and Perimeter Protocol
Spray soil with a 10% Aloe420 solution to break up leftover salt precipitates from previous seasons, detox chemical pesticide residuals, and improve soil tilth. Preseason soil application has been shown to buffer soil to a pH between 6-6.5. Soil treated with an Aloe420 solution has been shown to attract high populations of earthworms!
Stages 03-07: Early Vegetative Protocol
Use a 10% solution with filtered water. After an initial application rate of 10% is applied, 8% is sufficient for regular maintenance. Apply Aloe420 in weekly intervals for optimal results. Aloe420 applied during this time will balance the Carbon: Nitrogen ratio of the soil and facilitate more efficient transport of nutrients throughout the plant.
Stages 08-14: Early Flower Emergence and Bud Transition
Do not apply as a foliar supplement during this time. Utilize an 8% Aloe420 solution with filtered water. After an initial application rate of 8% is applied during weeks one and two of bud transition, 8% is sufficient for regular maintenance. Apply Aloe420 in weekly intervals for optimal results. One can continue to use it as a root drench up until two weeks prior to harvest. The ability of Aloe420 to trigger flowering hormones in a plant will allow for more numerous and denser clusters of budding flowers.
Always use reverse osmosis, filtered, or well water for Aloe420 solutions. Unfiltered tap water contains chloramine which can be detrimental to plants
Aloe420 can be added to an existing nutrient recipe
Apply Aloe420 within 4 hours of mixing a solution
Shake mixed solution vigorously to ensure water solubility
Do not spray in direct sunlight. It is preferable to spray Aloe420 in the late afternoon or near sunset to allow the solution adequate time to dry and avoid burning the plants
Never apply to tender seedlings. Wait until plants become juveniles to apply Aloe420
Do not ingest. Although a natural product, Aloe420 contains compounds that can act as powerful laxatives
