Science behind pumping 800ppm Potassium

I've always been on the bandwagon that 150ppm max N, 50ppm max P, 250ppm max K and 150ppm max CA was sufficient for flowering. But this article specifically focuses on raising N and Ca to support synthesis of massive P and K dump in order to increase flower production and weight.

Thoughts?

What do you mean dropping to boost p and k? I don't see anything being dropped. How far have you tried pushing p and k, especially with elevated N and Ca? The article shows N at 175 and Ca at 250 in order to support massive P and k levels

To those that choose to shoot messengers...


The request for surrender was dropped in the mud and is now illegible.
You are now doomed to a genocidal war over pancakes and eggs while attempting to cultivate life saving medicine for friend and enemy alike.
