Hydroponic cultivation utilizes completely sterile media such as arlit, rock wool or volcanic rock as a plant substrate. All the necessary nutrients for the plants correct development are supplied by the irrigation water.
This factor implies a greater commitment by the grower, who must control the pH and EC of the irrigation water after adding the nutrients, ensuring that the amount of dissolved salts is optimal and that they are optimally assimilated. In this way, certainly impressive results are obtained.
Thanks to the special hydroponic fertiliser’ formulation, the nutrients absorption by the plants is greatly improved. This optimal input allows plants to devote maximum energy towards flower and fruit production, with exuberant growth and an impressive final yield.
In addition, most available hydroponic substrates feature air and moisture retention, promoting root development and offering above average yields.
These fertilisers can also be used in aeroponic or soil-less systems, where the roots are suspended in the air within a dark chamber, with an automatic irrigation system that waters them frequently.
In addition, other products are often used in conjunction with hydroponic and aeroponic cultivation fertilisers such as
