  Last week, Rosebud gave you a look into the importance of nitrogen in plant life and nutrition. This week, we will continue our journey into its use, but more importantly, how it is derived for use in fertilizers.
  For hydroponic growers one of the most influential parameters affecting the garden’s performance is the temperature of the nutrient reservoir. Growers of high-value plants understand the importance of maintaining a consistent room temperature but many fail to understand the importance of the nutrient reservoir’s temperature.
  It’s 6 a.m. and I am fast asleep, off in a land full of Brad Pitt, trees that grow money and cats. Lots of cats. Don’t judge.
  From the hobby enthusiast to expert producer, nitrogen is one of the most familiar plant nutrients to any grower. It is a key supplement to any crop and used prolifically in hydroponics together with phosphorus and potassium. Although the demand for nitrogen as a fertilizer is high, its supply…
  Whether they know it or not, growers of high-value plants encounter humic and fulvic acids all the time. This is especially true of, but not limited to, the organic gardener because most organic fertilizers contain one or both acids.

  The single most important factor affecting nutrient uptake in a hydroponic system is a consistent pH. In fact, maintaining a consistent pH within the desired pH range determines whether or not nutrients will even be available for absorption.
  Many people know sphagnum moss as the pretty lining to a forest floor, but it is also a powerful medium in hydroponic gardening. Organic and wild-harvested, moss holds a special place among eco-friendly producers looking to outfit their operation with more natural components.
  Photosynthesis can be broken down into a chemical equation. Each contributing factor in that equation, when manipulated, will directly change the end result. Indoor horticulturists of high-value plants take various steps to manipulate these factors to produce optimal growth. Light, water, nutrients, humidity, and temperature all play vital roles…
  Indoor horticulturists are no strangers to the importance of pure water. After all, high-value plants, just like humans, are mainly made up of water. Water is the most precious resource we have on this planet. This imperative substance is also a vital resource to the indoor horticulturist.
