What is the quickest way to grow hydroponically?

The reason hydroponically grown plants grow faster than their soil-grown cousins, is that it is really easy to optimise the conditions your plants are living in - allowing them to easily reach their full potential. As a result, to grow hydroponic plants quickly, you will need to hit these following growth conditions as closely as possible.

1. Temp between 23 and 27 degrees

Plants thrive under consistent, mild temperature, however, a hot or cold day now and then wont kill them!

2. Humidity between 50-60%

A little moisture in the air makes it easier for plants to concentrate all their energy on growth, so try to keep your plants in a slightly humid environment, not too humid though or they won’t be able to breathe (transpire).

3. Adequate light

Without light, A plant can’t photosynthesise - the process by which the plant ‘feeds’ itself, so make sure they have access to enough of the right light. Each plant is different so do a little research on what your like best and adjust where they sit, or their LED cycle if using one of our Indoor Grow Kits.

4. Access the micro and macro nutrients

Just like you or I, plants need nutrients to grow. These include both the three macro-nutrients ; Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium or NPK and a range of micro-nutrients such as Boron (B), Copper (Cu) and Calcium (Ca).

 

As always, there is a little trial and error involved but if you fail the first time, just try again!
