Taking Care of your Plants with Solutions HOCL SuperWash
The standard Parts Per Million (PPM) for plants is 200 PPM if you are spraying on a regular basis. For spot treatment 400 ppm if you need to focus on visible contamination of the plant. With that being said some growers that have been spraying clones as high as 500 ppm with great results, but it was not prescribed.
The key with continuous spray is to visibly watch the growth of the plant. If it produces a rich green color and is visibly healthy you are good. If you see spots of fungus or mold on the stem or just under the bloom you increase PPM and if you see the tips of the leaves turn brown or see any visible wilting, you reduce the PPM.
