Plants are what they
eat, therefore the nutrient solution you feed them plays a very
important role in determining the success of your crop. There
are seventeen mineral elements that are essential to plant growth.
Years of studying these elements have led researchers to hydroponics
by combining these water soluble nutrients in specific amounts
to meet various plant's needs.
nutrients available to the home gardener come in many forms. Individually
packaged elements allow the grower to custom blend his solution,
or follow a specific plant recipe. The Homegrown "six pack"
is of this type. Once a recipe has been established, the grower
can mix a two-part concentrate such as Hydro-Gro or Hydro-Bloom.
Homegrown also stocks a wide range of standard garden fertilizers,
as well as vitamins, hormones, and expert nutrient advice.
