An grower can promote optimal plant health and photosynthesis by using LED grow lights, liquid organic fertilizers, and bio-stimulants.
LED Grow lights
LED grow lights provide a spectrum of light tailored to photosynthesis needs. For example, they can be customized to emit sunlight-like broad spectrums. As a result, growers are able to deliver the exact amount of light to their plants, resulting in healthier and more productive growth. To learn more, please visit cubicgrow.eu.
Different substrates and organic fertilizers
Using LED grow lights in addition to liquid organic fertilizers gives your plants the nutrients they need for photosynthesis and overall health. These plant-based fertilizers are gentle on plants and contain important elements, like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. The best part is that, compared to other kinds of fertilizers, they require little energy uptake from the plants. Therefore, the unused energy can be used for growth and development.
It is possible to use liquid organic fertilizers effectively in coco, peat, and rockwool substrates. Coco coir is a popular growing medium made from the fibrous shells of coconuts. It is an inert medium, meaning it does not contain any nutrients. Due to the fact that it is an ideal substrate for several grow systems, including hydroponics, which allow the grower precise control over the nutrient solution, liquid organic fertilizers can be easily added to the solution and delivered to the plants.
A variety of grow systems often use peat moss as a growing medium. As with coco coir, peat moss is an inert medium that contains no nutrients. In order to provide plant growth with the necessary nutrients, liquid organic fertilizers can be added to the nutrient solution.
Like coco coir and peat moss, rockwool is a mineral-based substrate that contains no nutrients. Liquid organic fertilizers can be easily added to the nutrient solution and used as fertilizer.
Monitoring the nutrient solution and adjusting the levels as necessary is also important to ensure that the plants receive the right balance of nutrients.
As an important tool for promoting plant health and photosynthesis, biostimulants contain beneficial microorganisms, enzymes, and other compounds that enhance soil health and promote plant development. In addition to improving plant health and photosynthesis, they can improve the plant's ability to absorb nutrients and water.
As well as protecting plants from stressors such as drought, temperature fluctuations, and disease, bio-stimulants help improve the overall health of the plant, making it more resilient.
The bio-stimulant you choose for rockwool substrates must be compatible with hydroponic systems. Some bio-stimulants can clog irrigation lines or cause other problems in hydroponic systems.
