Hydroponic Nutrients

Hydroponic gardens depend on more precise nutrient dosing to ensure a healthy, high-yielding plant than soil gardens. Nutrient recipes need to be water-soluble, complete, and stable, and thus hydroponic nutrients are generally synthetic.

How do plants get nutrients in hydroponics?

This will depend on the type of hydroponic system used. In a DWC system, plants roots are suspended in the nutrient solution. In an ebb and flow system, nutrient solution will flood the root zone, before draining back out. A hydroponic drip system works exactly the way it sounds, with a drip hose slowly dripping nutrient solution into the hydroponic grow media. An aeroponics system mists the roots which are suspended in air.

What are the best hydroponic nutrients?

At Hydrobuilder, we carry many great brands. Our personal favorite is the Cultured Solutions line of nutrients, due to their ease of use. We also carry hydroponic nutrients from popular brands such as Botanicare, General Hydroponics, and Emerald Harvest.

Can liquid fertilizer be used in hydroponics?

Hydroponic fertilizers come as a liquid or dry food. Liquid fertilizers are more popular because they come pre-mixed, making them easy to use. Powder fertilizers are less common and require a little more work from the grower, but are cheaper and accomplish the same task as liquid.

At Hydrobuilder, our hydroponic nutrient packages are formulated to provide adequate nutrition for a hydroponic garden from seed to harvest. Hydroponic nutrient packages include supplements and additives that a soil garden is able to obtain from its environment, making up for what a hydroponic garden may be missing out on. For example, experts recommend hydroponic gardeners supplement with silica, root stimulants, micronutrients, and other key nutrients that aren’t readily available in a hydroponic grow media.
