Like the human body, your plants need nutrients and vitamins. It does not take a green thumb to understand that most plants require water and sunlight, but is there another way to help our plants sprout to their full potential?
Temperature- Make sure your plants thrive in the environment you create for it. For example, some plants, such as radishes and giant pumpkins thrive in a very dry and hot climate. Other plants such as carrots and kale.
Nutrients- In hydroponic gardening, assisting your plants with nutrient solution helps your sprouts grow into the leafy goodness they were meant to be. I recommend Flora Micro, FloraGro and FloraBloom by General Hydroponics.
Balanced PH levels- Another reason hydroponics are a better way to yield healthy food is that you can easily assess the PH levels of your plants. PH Up Hydroponic Food Grade Alkaline Buffer and PH Down Hydroponic Food Grade Acid Buffer are what I use to control the PH level in my system. You will also need a PH meter.
