Soils and Growing Media



Designer soils and soil-less alternatives called substrates are amazing for total control of nutrient application and water and air retention. One of the most obvious decisions hydroponic farmers have to make is which medium they should use. Different medias are appropriate for different growing techniques.  Many Hydroponic growers opt for substrates but some say using soil improves flavour.  Earth is like a holding reservoir and typically has mineral nutrients in the soil which when water is added dissolves enabling plant roots to absorb them, the only thing you have to be careful of is over watering which in turn restricts oxygen to the roots and will restrict growth or water to little which will again be detrimental to the plant.
