GROWING-UNDERGROUND GROWING PLANTS USING HYDROPONICS
Hydroponics is the science of growing plants without soil. It provides a very clean method of plant growth making it highly suitable for use indoors.
a) You get higher yields. Instead of guessing what your plants need, as you do in soil, you start by growing your plants in an inert (i.e. having no nutritional content) media such as Grodan Rockwool or Clay Pebbles and feed your plants the very best nutrients (i.e. hydroponic plant food) that are available. This way you know that your plants are getting exactly the nourishment they require for maximum growth.
b) You can grow more plants in a smaller area as your plants are not competing for nutrients as theywould be in soil,
and your plants grow faster and therefore you tend to get higher yield as a result. They are also healthier making them more resistant to pests and diseases.
c) It is much quicker, cleaner and easier to clean up after you have finished growing hydroponically than from a grow room with soil in it. There is also a minimum to throw a way. Using hydroponics your growing medium tends to be fairly minimal.
If you are a first time grower interested in hydroponics and indoor gardening you could just buy one of our starter kits and we will show you how to get fantastic results from the beginning.
Our sales team service is highly recommended and confidential. We will take as long as necessary to make sure you are happy and confident with your hydroponic growing. We will advise you on the nutrients you require as well as the supporting products you need. Our staff have several years experience and have an excellent reputation based on trust, top products and offering you the right hydroponic information and advice.
HYDROPONICS SHOP ADVICE ON GROWING USING HYDROPONICS
You require a well aerated medium such as Grodan Rockwool, Clay Pebbles, Perlite or NFT (growing in running 'aerated' water) and give your plants all the nutrients they need to grow which we can supply.
In the initial vegetative growth phase this would be a 'grow' nutrient. Later in the flowering and fruiting phase this would be a 'bloom' nutrient.
You need to make sure the pH of water you feed your plants is at around pH 6. This is done by testing the pH with either a cheap manual tester or an electronic meter. You must make sure you don't overfeed your plants,i.e. when they are young you feed with a very diluted down nutrient solution and as they progress into the flower and fruit growing stage you increase the strength to match the demands of the plant.
This information is on all the plant nutrient packages. We will advise you on the best grow lights, hydroponic systems and kits you may require.
