Nutrients: Powdered vs Liquid

Powdered nutrients are absorbed by plants at the same rate as liquid systems. This is because the powder is mixed with water before applying it to the roots. Liquid nutrients can be anywhere from 20-90% water while powders have essentially none. Because powders react...

NPK

The basic building blocks plants use are Nitrogen, Phosphate, and Potash. These are commonly abbreviated as NPK. Each has a unique chemical structure and assist the plant in different ways. But all three are essential to cultivating a healthy plant. A plant that...

Nutrient Lockout

Nutrient lockout is caused by the build-up of too many nutrients in the soil / grow medium. To correct for nutrient lockout, you’ll need to perform a nutrient flush.

Copper Deficiency
