Hydroponics Manuals & Videos

After numerous requests about the differences that exist between all the Electronic ballast on the market, we decided to publish the tests performed at our facility of the Electronic Ballasts sold in Europe....

 


 Before you start your hydroponics grow system set up there are few things you should keep in mind to create your own hydroponic room to suite your needs....

 Do not be satisfied with the kits already assembled by the retailer! Independently select the single components according to your budget, space, ventilation reflector, lamp with most lumens.

Why switch to Aeroponic?
The Aeroponic System is unquestionably the most efficient thanks to the optimization when feeding by administering the fertilizers into the air. Directly spraying onto the roots is the best way to develop faster growing and flowering...

 The integration of co2 is considered the largest secret weapon to have an abundant harvest of fruits and flowers. Add co2 to your garden and it will bring about substantial benefits.

 SAFETY is clearly one of the PRIORITIES for an indoor farmer. Here we have drafted some guidelines for choosing the correct lighting kits. The ignition systems for gas discharge lamps (HPS, HPS AGRO, MH, ETC.) Are defined as "feeders".

This system has been tested and developed by Max after several months of work. Thanks Max! It is a hybrid system that combines two important hydroponic technologies: Hydro (drip) and DWC (roots immersed and suspended).


Coconut fibre substrates are one of the most practical and efficient ways to grow, particularly for growers of average level as it is lightweight, well ventilated and oxygenised. It has a good drainage, is pH stable, retains moisture and is environmentally friendly and recyclable.

HPS lamps for cultivation (Sodium Vapour) and MH (Metal Halide) light sources are the most commonly used in greenhouses and have revealed to be the most appropriate choice for most cases. They are currently commercially available in a variety of sizes and strength, colour of light and spectral composition. Any lighting requirements can be met.


Rockwool GRODAN is a natural product. A volcanic rock (basalt) that was originally a liquid of a high temperature up to 1600 °. Through its treatment it is spun up to a volume approximately 90 times higher than its initial size. The rock wool is sterilized at 1600 ° so it is absent from infections and diseases. It has an optimum water retention and a perfect relationship air/water.

 The DWC system (Deep Water Culture) is one of the most easy methods of hydroponic cultivation as it allows plants to grow and suspend with the roots immersed in the nutrient solution. The solution is super oxygenised from an air pump combined with porous stones. With this method the plants grow much faster because of the high amount of oxygen that the roots receive.


The AEROPONIC PRODUCER is without doubt the most advanced system of aeroponics so far developed. It consists of a reservoir containing nutrient solution under a network of baskets housed in the growing chambers special grip.


 For optimal growth plants need about 16 minerals. Not all minerals have the same importance for the plant. The three major minerals that plants use large quantities of are:

Nitrogen (N) - Phosphorus (P) - Potassium (K).
The amount of NPK are almost always listed on the labels of fertilizers, for example "21-15-21". These numbers correspond to the percentage of weight of each macro element, better known as N, P and K.

HPS lamps for cultivation (Sodium Vapour) and MH (Metal Halide) light sources are the most commonly used in greenhouses and have revealed to be the most appropriate choice for most cases. They are currently commercially available in a variety of sizes and strength, colour of light and spectral composition. Any lighting requirements can be met.

The electrical conductivity (EC) of nutrient solution to water is expressed as Siemens per cm (s/cm), millisimens for cm (ms/cm) or Microsimens for cm (µ S/cm). This measure can be made with an EC meter when you add fertilizer to increase the ion with electric charge.
