Do you belong to the category of hydroponic grower who believes in proper management of the nutrients formula? Then its very important for you to understand the importance of hydroponics nutrients and accordingly use these nutrients in your plants life. Here are few tips for you that will help you effectively manage hydroponics nutrients and supplies for your hydroponic garden. 

 

Following a good nutrient regime and keeping it simple will go a long way to ensure adequate uptake of all the essential nutrients. It is advisable not to use too many formulations as it may be very difficult to trace the exact cause of the problem if there are many additives and supplements in the nutrient mix. What we have found is that it is not always the most expensive products that work best, it is how you use them.  What we like to do is show you the proper way to use all products, expensive and inexpensive, and how to get the most out of them. There are always differences, but never drastic enough to have your growing project fail.  

 

Nutrient Management

  • Use closed systems instead of open systems because closed systems efficiently collect nutrients solution and reuse, unlike open systems that waste nutrients solution. Also, there is a large variety of products for closed hydroponic systems compared to open hydroponics systems.

  • Its advisable to not use A and B concentrated nutrient tanks. Use individual liquid fertilizers to make changing formulation easier and faster. This results in controlled hydroponics nutrients formulation process.

  • Gather reliable information before you start building your hydroponics garden. Study different needs of the type of plants you wish to grow, the needed growing environment and the amount of nutrients formulation needed during different growth stages.

  • With hydroponic gardening you have to ensure that you give right kind nutrients to your plants.

  • With complete knowledge you can mix and match the available nutrients to get desired results.

  • Take advice from experienced gardeners or experts to understand methods and brands needed to grow plants efficiently. Organic hydroponics is one smart choice.

  • You can use a formula that automatically controls the pH balance for your plants to boost their quality.

  • Its very important for you to understand the water pH balance. Because of this the nutrients you will add will ensure faster growth despite the hard water. For instance, if your calcium levels are above 70 ppm, then your nutrient solution should have added nutrients.

  • Not only do your plants need hydroponic nutrients, they also need essential minerals to grow rapidly. The three main minerals needed are Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium. These are primary minerals; your plants also need secondary minerals to grow faster.

  • Some hydroponics nutrients can be easily tailored for speedy flowering, therefore do good research in advance to ensure that you get the right nutrient balance for the type of plant you wish to grow.

  • The nutrients you feed your plants decide their future growth and strength. Understanding the nutrient needs of your plants to give them what they need. With the help of hydroponics growing systems you can directly supply beneficial micronutrients and macronutrients to your plants, in correct proportion. 

Garden Management

 

As with soil-based gardens, hydroponic plants require good pest and disease maintenance controls. Failure to do so creates the same results as with 'ordinary' gardens (i.e. spindly or dead plants). Since the majority of hydroponic plants are fruits and vegetables, that means the plants are not worth eating.

However, managing the hydroponic garden is even trickier, since disease and pests have it much easier in this setting. Plants are continuously kept wet, either immersed in water ('true' hydroponics) or continually sprayed (aeroponics) or reside in a permanently wet medium such as perlite or sand. Fortunately, as with soil-based gardens, there is an large array of available methods to manage the problem.
