MY RECHARGE HARDENED UP WHAT NOW?
If it’s still brown / gray and just bricked up, you can break it or scrape it into smaller chunks and it’s fine. You might just have to stir it a little more than usual.

WHAT NUTRIENT LINES WORK WITH RECHARGE?
Recharge works with and increases the efficiency of any nutrient line – traditional mineral-based or organic. Recharge holds more of your favorite nutrients in the soil so less is washed away and more is used by your plants.
SHOULD RECHARGE BE USED WITH CHLORINATED, FILTERED, OR UNFILTERED WATER?
Recharge can be used with filtered or unfiltered water. Most chlorinated municipal water is not harmful to the microbes in Recharge.
TOO MUCH RECHARGE?
Nope, but you will likely experience diminishing returns if using more than 1 tbsp per gallon. Recharge at high application rates will not harm your plants. Recharge does not force-feed nutrition to your plants, it makes more nutrition available to your plants. Your plants will only take what they need from the soil. Recharge will not burn your plants at any concentration.
RECHARGE AS A FOLIAR SPRAY
Spraying kelp and fulvic acids that are in Recharge will be beneficial for your plant to get phytohormones and some nutrition.
Recharge as a spray is kind of like compost tea spray. The microbes will out-compete pathogens and create a hostile surface for them.
WHEN SHOULD I STOP USING RECHARGE?
It is not harmful, but most folks stop using Recharge in week 5 or 6 of flower. The additional Nitrogen that is made available is generally not needed at this stage of the plant’s lifecycle.
However, Recharge can be used to reverse a Nitrogen deficiency in mid to late flower if needed, instead of adding grow nutrients.
