Water & Food Nutrient Solutions

All plants need nutrients. Outdoors, plants take certain elements from the earth and combine them with water and air. Using energy from sunlight they create simple sugars, carbohydrates, and proteins to feed both themselves and all living things on this planet. A hydroponic solution must supply all the necessary nutrients in the proper form and ratio for plant growth. All major, minor, and trace elements must be properly balanced and water soluble. The three major plant elements are nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium— often abbreviated as N-P-K.
