Foliar sprayers are an important tool in your cultivation and horticulture toolbelt. The term “foliar” simply means, “relating to leaves.” And foliar sprayers are simply water sprayers, often with optimized misting and range for various gardening applications. Foliar sprayers are also often referred to as “garden sprayers” or just “water sprayers.
Although not a replacement for properly balanced water and nutrient solutions, water sprayers are an excellent way to supplement your cannabis crop’s food supply by spraying nutrient solutions on the leaves where they can be quickly absorbed. For farmers and hydroponic systems that suffer from nutrient-salt build up in the soil or on roots, using foliar sprayers can help reduce the amount of nutrient concentration needed in your nutrient delivery system.
Water sprayers are also great for applying herbicides and pesticides. For larger grow rooms and greenhouses, our back pack sprayers and pump sprayers allow you to apply herbicides to your plants quicker than manual sprayers.
Don’t forget to spray the underside of the leaves! This is where the stomata are located and where pests like to loiter. Industry trusted brands available such as Rainmaker, Solo, and Hudson. Hoses, repair kits, and hand sprayers for smaller crops also available at Omega.
