It's All About The Nutrients
nutrients are one of the most important components
of your hydroponic growing system. This
method of growing plants without the use of soil
supplies food to the plants by using nutrient media.
Every plant needs to receive the right amount of
phosphorous, nitrogen, potassium, and many different
trace elements. The wrong nutrient balance, or a
solution without enough hydroponic nutrients in it,
could cause serious problems for your hydroponic
system. Lets take a look at hydroponic nutrients and
how to pick the ones that are right for you.

There are many choices for
lighting, but the two most commonly used types of
lighting include There are all kinds of different
commercial nutrient options out there. Some claim to
help your plants smell better. Others will allow you
to produce plants more quickly, to get more blooms
on your flowering plants, or to produce sturdy
plants with significant root systems. The right
hydroponic nutrients for your garden will depend in
part on what you want to grow, and what the primary
focus of your growing might be. Someone interested
in producing greens quickly won't want the same
hydroponic nutrients as someone who wants to get a
big yield from their tomato plants.
Price will be another factor in the hydroponic nutrients you decide to purchase. Not all brands are priced the same, and some of them could make your growing process extremely expensive. On the other hand, the cheapest hydroponic nutrients on the market might not produce high quality plants. You need to set a price range appropriate to what you can afford to spend, then buy the highest quality hydroponic nutrients you can within that price range. That is the best way to get a great hydroponic garden without spending too much.
What about pH? You will need to pay attention to the pH level of your nutrient solution. An overly acidic or overly alkaline solution could be bad for your plants in the long run. The majority of plants prefer an acidity within the 5.5 to 7.5 range - more alkaline nutrient solutions may prevent them from absorbing all the nutrients available. Overly acidic solutions may cause damage to the roots.
Most nutrient solutions are a little acid, and the majority of tap water has a pH of about 7 to 8. This means that you won't have too much trouble dropping your hydroponic nutrients solution into the correct range. However, you will still need to test the pH from time to time if you want to get the most out of your hydroponic garden.
