Nutrients and additives have been used for years for growers of all types and varieties, through all stages of a plant's life. For a pure hydroponics system, nutrients are a must have, as the plant has no other way to get the food that it requires and so will either die or not grow to it's full potential.
The benefits of using nutrients and additives are generally aimed at increasing the yield from your plants and making sure that they are healthy enough can fend off any nasty predators and diseases. You can also play a part in helping them stay parasite and disease free by inspecting them regularly for signs of disease or infestation. This is especially true of foodstuffs where insects may be tempted by your plants.
Knowing how much fertiliser to put in your water can be difficult, but with an EC meter, you can get an exact reading to ensure your plants are getting a consistent supply of food. Overfeeding a plant is just as bad as not feeding it enough and will result in the same outcome. Find EC meters here.
Our hydroponic nutrients are an amazing way to add additional nutrients to the water, to allow your plants to have all the food that they want to eat. You can also add them to your soil substitutes which can be found on our growing media page, these are substitutes for soil and help to support your plant. The base nutrients are a great way to experiment with the type of nutrients that are right for you.
We also stock a starter kit of nutrients, which are ideal for novice growers who are wanting to try out some nutrients but aren't sure of the right amounts and types yet. These must also be considered as essential products if you are wanting to try out a hydroponics system for the first time. If you are looking to try out a hydroponic system, check out our hydroponic kit catalogue.
