Plant nutrients – How to choose the best plant nutrients?

Out on the market there are many different nutrients and additives. As a beginner it can be hard to know which one to choose and we will gladly guide you to make the right choice.

When you choose nutrients, the first decision you need to decide is if you want to grow with normal nutrients or organic ones. If you want to grow organic we at Maxgrowshop have a perfect solution for you. Biobizz offers only organic nutrients of a very high quality that will give you an amazing result, although being an organic nutrient. Another great organic product or nutrient is Atami Bloombastic. Atami Bloombastic is also very often used in combination with normal nutrients due its extremely high efficiency.


When it comes to normal nutrients, we have the best nutrients both for beginners and professional growers. Advanced Nutrients is the absolutely best nutrient ever been done on the market. The company has during many years made heavy studies about plants and their needs. With their nutrient you provide your plants with all they need. In this way you increase the plants uptake of nutrients. Like we humans, the plants get bigger the more they eat and drink. The nutrients is the plants food, but at the same time it is important to remember not to give the plant to strong nutrients because your plants then can get burned or even die. If you over dosage your plants with nutrients this can easily be seen as a nutrition burn at the ends of the leaves that turn brownish.

Gold Label is another very good brand on nutrients on the market. They offer concentrated high quality nutrients that is made in Holland. The high concentration makes it cheaper for big growers to get an excellent harvest. In our opinion Canna comes out as a number three and also offer a good products. Thereafter Hesi is a recommendable choice for the beginner as the nutrients is not so concentrated, which makes it easier to avoid problems with over dosage.

It is though important to have the right PH in the nutrient blend as this also affects the uptake of the nutrient solution and this way also the crop.

Finally we would like to finish with saying that Advanced Nutrient is without doubt the best regular nutrient and Biobizz is the best organic nutrient!


Hydroponics : A Revolution in Farming

Hydroponics is basically a type of farming done with the combination of chemical solutions with the plants. Now, you will wonder how we can grow vegetables in indoors with water and nutrients, without soil. And those plants will be having enough nutrients for human beings to survive and to lead a Healthy lifestyle? Answer is a Big Yes! Hydroponics offers growing healthy foods easily in the poorer countries of the world where the terrain or climate is inhospitable to agriculture. Also, in those areas where the soil has lost its nutrients or fertile land is hard to come by, hydroponics can produce healthy foods using minimum space and resources. Maxgrowshop is the largest online hydroponic shop in entire Europe, that is selling high-quality grow kits like complete Tent kits, Ventilation kits, MH, HPS and CFL lighting kits.

Hydroponic gardening

There are two major advantages of hydroponics over traditional farming. Hydroponic gardening saves space. In Hydroponic farming, plants can be placed much more closely together than in traditional fields because of the way nutrients are provided to them. So, amount of space required for growing plants using hydroponic techniques is very less and you can grow as many as four times as many plants can be grown as compared with traditional farming. Secondly, hydroponics minimizes many of the problems associated with traditional farming which means less sickly, damaged, or wasted crops thus hydroponic growing can be more productive. Let me explain this for you. For example,

  • Yield of Reddish in ground is only 5 to 10 tons whereas in hydroponics farming, the harvest is 50 to 300 tons!
  • Yield of Cucumber, the figures are 7000 pounds whereas in hydroponics farming it is 27,000 pounds.
  • Yield of Spinach is 8000 pounds in ground & 19,000 pounds in hydroponics farming.

Now, if you are thinking to start with this new way of farming, there are some important points which you have to take care and they are following:

  • Hydroponic growers customize all the nutrient mixes and for doing so proper knowledge is mandatory. The whole workout of figuring out which field has the best soil and proper nutrition for which crop is very crucial in hydroponic gardening and here proper knowledge plays the lead role.
  • You have to install proper irrigation system and lighting system that are necessary for the hydroponic gardens and these systems also require specific amount of space.
  • Plants thriving under hydroponics garden have to be carefully examined.

There are online mega stores on the internet which are providing Basic/Beginner level hydroponics kit. Online stores like Maxgrowshop provide a wide range of Hydroponics grow systems. The way it is gaining popularity day by day, we can conclude this that it is surely going to rule the world in future!
