Did you know soilless culture of plants? Hydroponics is a new way of it, it's also called nutrient solution culture. Put nutrient liquid in a basket. Then fix the root of the plant in the basket. So nutrient liquid can replace soil, provide moisture, oxygen and nutrition for plant. In this way make the plant grow normally, and finish its lifespan.

With the essential intensive cultivation and precision, this sort of new technology cultivates plants which win the admiration of domestic and foreign plant consumers. There are many of advantage with these plants, just like clean, graceful and environment-friendly.

When the plant is still the seed, one growing medium is extremely important. It could be put on the base of a pot if we grow plants on soil, it will help to promote matrix ventilation and accelerate the leakage. In hydroponics, it helps to fix the root of the plants. So, you should think about conscientiously what kind of growing medium you need to choose. Then you better use gravel, peat moss, sand. And we don't recommend using rockwool and we will definitely want to avoid using vermiculite, with which asbestos fibers are mixed to bring about disasters to one's breathing system.

In the entire life of the plant, nutrients is extremely important. It is divided into two broad categories, macronutrients and micronutrients. Macronutrients refers elements whose total amount counts in excess of one ten thousandth of the total weight of biological elements, including C, H, O, N, P, S, K, Ca, Mg and so on. In these elements, C is the most basic element, C, O, N and H are basic elements. The quantity of C, H, O, N, P, S accounts for 97% of the total protoplasm. The 3rd important component is organic compound such as carbohydrate, protein, fat and organic acid. These are products of the photosynthesis. Nitrogen constitutes an important element of protein, which constitutes the cell membrane, nucleus, the main component of various organelles. All these elements are quite important to plant growth. Micronutrients refer to elements which are needed by plants of a small amount but they play an irreplaceable important role.

The light is vital to plant. In various growth periods of the plants, the demand for the light is different. When in the growing stage, plants are most in need of blue spectrum light, which can be supplied by High Pressure Sodium (HPS) lights. When the plant is at ripe stage, the plant needs red spectrum lights, you can use Metal Halide Lights. But most plant will go through two period of period, so you had better choose Cheap LED Grow Lights.
