We write about all sorts of interesting aspects related to plant nutrition and
All kinds of mistakes can be made during fertilization. The main error is the imbalance, by
unilaterally adding an excess of certain ions (salts).
In the air, the carbon occurs as carbon dioxide (CO2). It is brought into the air by breathing
plants and animals and by decaying or burning organic substances.
EC stands for Electric Conductivy (mS / liter) and with that we measure the amount of (usable and
unusable) salts in water.
The culture temperature is a very important determining factor. If the growing temperature
is not correct, the plant will grow less or not at all.
Humidity is perhaps the most underrated growth factor. We use relative humidity RL as a unit to
measure this and to make adjustments.
The relationship between light and dark (day and night) is what we call the photo period.
Flowering starts when the days get shorter.
he pH of a medium is a very important, but also the most wrong factor. A plant
transports the elements in water.
With the help of soil life, plants can build up a healthy and natural resistance to diseases and
attacks. We can distinguish bacteria into bad bacteria and good bacteria called the Rhizobacteria.
Plants usually fail to absorb fertilizer through their leaves, but it
is still common for experts in agriculture and horticulture to use spraying methods.
Why do they do it?
Metrop Hydroponics' new line of highly concentrated organic fluid
fertilizers can rightly be called the new generation of organic plant fertilizers.
The most phosphorus in a plant or tree is in the root !The higher the
phosphorus level in a growth fertilizer, the greater root growth ! That is why
Metrop made the MR1 Grow fertilizer.
The Metrop MR2 is a very high concentrated liquid Flower fertilizer.
Maximum use is 100ml in a 100 litre water tank. That means you dont have to carry
large bottles of fertilizers anymore.
Nutrients can’t normally be taken in through the leaves or fruit.
Still, we spray a lot in professional agriculture and horticulture markets.
How can this be?
