Hydro Grains are made of pure and salt-free baked clay. They contain a very low concentration of elements. The quality of hydro granules is largely determined by the pH. In addition, the concentration of sodium and Manganese is important.
Hydro Grains are used for various farming methods, sometimes it puts them at the bottom of the pot when growing with a substrate and earth. The clay pellets are then used as additional drainage, so drainage and oxygen from below gone better. Sometimes, one also mixes the hydro granules through the substrate, in order to make. The culture medium airier The roots can thus better branching.
A third method that is often used, in order to grow the plants. Directly on hydro granules Often does one do this in combination with an oxygen pump. That way the roots are at the bottom of the pot constantly in water therethrough mixed liquid fertilizers and the oxygen pump provides enough oxygen for the roots. This culture method is very successful. The clay pellets and feed water flowing form a winning combination when it comes to a good supply of oxygen. The plants get both top-oxygen (because the clay pellets as much air through), and from below. Namely the flowing water contains many times more oxygen than water that would simply stand still. Actually stagnant water would anyway be out of the question, as this can often easily acidify and / or kinds of diseases might bring. We can plant the abundance of oxygen know how to appreciate, as a breeder find out. The plants grow rapidly and develop a highly branched root system, they must give in order to develop them. During the cycle a sturdy trunk and branches sufficient basis The plants will be very beautiful flower clusters can produce. During the flowering period The large weight hydro granules also ensures that the plants are still more hold, so that the plants can bear. Considerable weight to a flower bunches
An additional advantage of cultivation on hydro grains compared to conventional potting soil, is that you can easily use that indicates when you have to give. (Food) a water meter That way, you rarely give too much or too little water. Through the use of hydro-grains, the risk of mold, mildew, and other plant diseases minimal. Another advantage is that there are different plants can be. Put in a single planter In ordinary soil of plants of different sizes may have different requirements for water. When growing in clay pellets increasing every plant itself so much water and food as needed.
