Solutions for Plant Nutrient Deficiencies

Plants just like people need necessary nutrients to live. Without the proper amount of nutrients, plants suffer. Here is a list of common nutrients, signs of nutrient deficiencies and what to give to make the plant healthy.

pH 

Before we jump into nutrients, we need to talk about an essential factor, pH. pH or power of hydronium (H30+) is a measurement of the concentration of hydrogen ions in a liquid. Plants absorb nutrients with charges on them since hydrogen has a positive charge, pH can change how plants absorb nutrients. You may want to check your soil pH to see how it is affecting your plants. For hydroponic systems, the pH can be changed by adding salts to the system. Control Complete Nutrients. Deficiencies of Magnesium and I

How to Increase Yields While Doing Your Part to Protect the Environment

Do you want a side of heavy metals in your fertilizer? How about dead fish from applying too many nutrients? We use fertilizers to grow plants at NO expense to the environment. Heavy metals are in some fertilizers, and we overuse synthetic fertilizers, wasting them which leads to agriculture run-off. Organic and conventional agriculture methods cannot address these methods. New tools including a new type of fertilizer can help solve these environmental problems while increasing yields.

Top Additives and Nutrients to Increase Plant Growth

What Can You Add to Your Plants and Soil To Benefit Crops?

In addition to the basics of growing cannabis: temperature, lighting, humidity, moisture, light, genetics and proper container, additives and nutrients are vital to encouraging maximum plant growth and yield. Because growing plants as crops require a significant amount of nutrients to support its leaves, thick flowers, and fruit, these top ten plant additives, and soil nutrients must be included:  

Primary Macronutrients

Nitrogen is considered the first of the three primary macronutrients. After carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen, nitrogen is the essential element for plants. Nitrogen is responsible for healthy leaf growth and makes up parts of proteins, which is why it is needed more than the other two macronutrients, phosphorus and potassium, during the vegetative stage. It is hard to give too much nitrogen; however, some plants like cannabis do not need as much nitrogen in t

No-till Soil and Its Effects on Cannabis

No-till Soil and Its Effects on Gardens and Cannabis

Not tilling soil can improve plant health and reduce environmental damages. Here are the advantages and disarranges of no-till and some ideas to keep in mind. For hundreds of years, humans have practiced agriculture. We found that tilling the land changed the soil and reduced weeds. A no-till garden consists of leaving the earth in its place and not replacing it at the end of the season, allowing the soil’s nutrients and moisture to create a self-sustaining environment.

Advantages of Tilling:

  • Evenly moves organic material around making nutrients more evenly distributed.
  • Aerates topsoil
  • Kills Weeds

Disadvantages of Tilling:

  • Soil can’t hold as much water
