For a growing plant, nutrients are the fundamental materials that they rely on. In fact, without these nutrients, plants cannot grow well. For hydroponic systems, cultivators need to make sure that they have the right hydroponic nutrients. Eastbourne growers will notice the difference when their plants are getting the right nutrients.
Plant nutrients are a bit like the food humans need. In what sense? With the food we eat, we take in energy to survive. But just with energy, we would not have a healthy life. We also need to take in the minerals and vitamins that our bodies rely on. When we take in calcium, it builds our bones and teeth, but also activates enzymes through the body and helps the nerves to send messages. Copper helps to make red blood cells and also regulate the neurotransmitters in our nervous system. Potassium helps balance fluids in the body and also makes our muscles contract. Having these minerals in our diet makes us health.
Similarly, with plants, the nutrients are about more than just helping the plant survive. Plants need to take on at least 17 different elements in the form of nutrients to be healthy. Some of these are called macronutrients, which taken into the plant in large quantities. These include nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, carbon, oxygen and hydrogen. Others are called micronutrients. These are trace minerals like iron, chlorine, zinc and copper. They are used in far smaller quantities than macronutrients.
Some nutrients, like oxygen, hydrogen and nitrogen, are taken from the air through the leaves. But many of these elements are absorbed through the roots. The roots take in the nutrients and the plant utilises these for growth.
With hydroponic systems, there is no soil for the roots to embed into. Therefore, whilst the plants can still take in nutrients from the air, the grower needs to provide the necessary nutrients that would have been sourced in the soil. By adding hydroponic nutrients, Eastbourne customers can maximise the productivity of the plants they grow. The beauty of the hydroponic nutrients Eastbourne growers use is that it is possible to control the balance of nutrients. This is different to soil, which can become exhausted of minerals and nutrients over time.
