  • Garden Soil and Nutrient Solution Testing - pH, TDS, and More!

    Garden soil and nutrient testing will be your biggest responsibility on a day-to-day basis while growing. Plants are generally pretty resilient, but they can develop some pretty nasty issues if certain aspects of their nutrition are out of whack.

    We’ll break this post into two sections - testing your garden soil and testing your nutrient solution. If you’re growing hydroponically, you’ll just need to worry about testing your hydroponic reservoir.

  • The HyperLogic Commercial RO System

    Water filtration is an essential process for any serious commercial hydroponics operation.

    Plants, like humans, thrive when given high quality water. Many of the particulates in tap water will not harm us, but that doesn't hold true for our plants. To grow the biggest, most potent plants, we need to filter out these particulates before watering.
