How do nutrients affect plant growth?
Just like humans, plants need nourishment to live. Plants can capture certain compounds through photosynthetsis (carbon and oxygen), but they require additional nutrients in their root system. The three essential macronutrients for plants are nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium. These are largely responsible for directing plant growth, and growers can tweak this NPK ratio to achieve certain goals throughout the plants life. Additional micronutrients and supplements are necessary for preventing and correcting deficiencies, and for different aspects of a plants life.
Whether you are looking for a nutrient package or compost tea, or just want to supplement your plants with a specific nutrient, we have it here at Hydrobuilder. We have nutrients specifically for hydroponics or soil, in both organic and synthetic means.
