When buying nutrience for your grow you will see NPK on most bottles/powders, This is a little about what that means.

Please consider that like most things that live on this planet, they dont like too much, even when going for yeild from a power plant by over nut'ing you can course more harm than good to the grow. many people boast of nutrients being the answer when in fact the yeild was high from the time taken in the grow phase.

Macronutrients            This is what the NPK is telling you.

Plants need around 16 mineral nutrients for optimal growth. However, not all these nutrients are equally important for the plant. Three major minerals--nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K)--are used by plants in large amounts. These three minerals are usually displayed as hyphenated numbers, like "10-15-10," on commercial fertilizers. These numbers correspond to the relative percentage by weight of each of the major nutrients--known as macronutrients--N, P, and K. Macronutrients are present in large concentrations in plants. All nutrients combine in numerous ways to help produce healthy plants. Usually, sulfur (S), calcium (Ca), and magnesium (Mg) are also considered macronutrients.

These nutrients play many different roles in plants. Here are some of their dominant functions:

  • Nitrogen (N)--promotes development of new leaves

  • Phosphorus (P)--aids in root growth and blooming

  • Potassium (K)--important for disease resistance and aids growth in extreme temperatures

  • Sulfur (S)--contributes to healthy, dark green color in leaves

  • Calcium (Ca)--promotes new root and shoot growth

  • Magnesium (Mg)--chlorophyll, the pigment that gives plants their green color and absorbs sunlight to make food, contains a Mg ion

 Example of NPK for Grow Phase: 4-3-6,   Bloom Phase: 2-6-3.5,  Flowering Booster: 0-9-18,  Powerfull Flower Boosters 0-40-30

NFT SYSTEM NFT stands for ‘Nutrient Film Technique', a very shallow stream (or film) of water containing dissolved nutrients is constantly pumped past the bare roots of plants.

Gro-Tanks are often referred to as 'pure hydroponics' because virtually no growing medium is used and roots benefit from unrestricted access to oxygen.

Nutrient solution is constantly pumped up from the reservoir to the roots in the planting channel and flows back into the reservoir ready to be passed over the roots again.

Zero waste – the only growing medium used is the rockwool block the plants were started in. This means there's less chance of disease and less waste material to throw away at the end of the season.

3x Bigger Yields - The constant supply of water and nutrients directly to the roots combined with unlimited access to oxygen means plants are healthier, faster growing and produce 3x more yield than if grown using traditional soil methods.

Healthier plants – plants are never under-fed or over-watered and there is no build up of salts in the root zone.

    Wilma system

The Wilma is an active hydro version of a drip irrigation system. Plants benefit from the accurate feeding of active hydroponics, combined with the flexibility of growing in pots.

Pots are placed on a tray above a nutrient solution tank. Plants and drippers are placed in the pots with the chosen growing medium – clay, coco, soil or rockwool. Set the irrigation frequency with a timer, which triggers the drippers to automatically feed the plants.

The nutrient solution works its way through the medium and over the roots of the plants, draining into the catchment tank and drawing oxygen into the root zone.

The Wilma offers the flexibility to be used as an irrigation system with a tank to catch run off or as a fully re-circulating hydro system.
