Roots Excel has long been regarded as the best root enhancer in the industry; it’s a product with a huge following of growers who simply won’t use anything else (though we think that may well be about to change…). That’s because Roots Excel is one of those additives that produces undeniable, visible effects within days of running it. Over the years, countless side-by-side tests have been performed using Roots Excel and it proves its worth every time. You can expect to see an abundance of vibrant, pearly-white roots that exude health and vitality.
Somehow, the chemists at Monkey Nutrients have managed to develop a product that has what it takes to match Roots Excel and, dare we say, steal its crown. Root Shoot is an extremely potent root booster that delivers results that are on a par with Roots Excel; add just a small dose to your tank (it’s super-concentrated at 0.3ml per litre) and watch your roots go wild, exploding in very short order. This explains why Root Shoot has been flying off the shelves just lately and why we’re getting so much positive customer feedback.
The Hanna GroLine EC Tester is a lab-grade meter that measures nutrient strength with pinpoint accuracy. Hanna Instruments, the manufacturers behind it, are the most distinguished company in the field, with a long history of creating game-changing meters that have set the standard for the scientific world. Their GroLine range is designed specifically for horticulture, but it’s part of a larger catalogue of scientific instruments that stretches back decades.
Over 40 years ago, Hanna was the very first company to develop a single-probe portable conductivity meter.
Back in 1984, they developed the first handheld pH meter that was microprocessor-based.
And in 1985, they created the first pH meter with built-in compensative temperature sensors to improve accuracy. This feature has gone on to become the industry standard and is incorporated into an array of meters from other manufacturers.
In the year 2000, Hanna pushed things even further by creating a pocket tester that was capable of checking pH, EC and temperature at the same time – again, the first of its kind, and something that has been copied countless times.
Yet again, LED Grow Lights take another leap forward!
One of the general facts of life is that technology is always advancing. And this is still true of LED grow lights which continue to improve, thanks to the continuous advances made by LED manufacturers such as Osram, Samsung and Cree. When these advances are diligently used in the design of a grow light, they bring us more light for every watt that they consume, which means bigger yields, less heat, and lower running costs for the end-user.
The SANlight Q6W brings us pretty much the highest level of efficiency that is currently possible from an LED grow light. The efficiency of a grow light at turning electrical power into PAR light is measured in µmols/Joule. Please see the last section of this article for an explanation if you are interested in the science. It goes more into depth about what µmols/Joule means, and what one actually
LED Grow Lights – We compare Models around the 240w to 300w level.
Not everyone wants to grow in a standard 1.2m square grow tent. That may be because of space limitations or because the cost of the power that the lighting would require would be higher than they want to spend.
In this article we take a look at the latest version of LED grow lightsthat are suitable for a slightly smaller grow tent, such as a 1m x 1m.
Component LEDs have come on leaps and bounds in recent years. The results of
2 New Models of the Maxibright Daylight LED Grow Lights Have Arrived We make no secret of the fact that we love the 660w Maxibright Daylight LED grow light. It has a great spectrum, its highly efficient, and because of its design, it has a far superior footprint and a much more even spread of […]
The Battle of the Boxes ? it?s BudBox Lite Vs BudBox Pro Since 2004, BudBox have been (and remain) the leading and most trusted grow tent producers in the indoor horticulture industry, and it?s easy to see why! All BudBox tents feature excellent quality, robust and highly reflective tent linings, which are well stitched and […]
The traditional HPS grow light for all intents and purposes is a fixed point light source. A lamp is installed inside a reflector, which then spreads the light out to cover an area such as 1.2m squared. For a long time, the design of LED grow lights has mimicked this idea, with all the LEDs […]
The Future is Bright! (as long as you choose the right grow lamp) There is a bewildering number of different brands and models of 600 watt grow lamp on the market. If you are putting together the equipment for your first grow, or just looking to replace your ageing grow lamp, how can you know […]
How to choose a CDM Going back a few years, Metal Halide lamps were the standard choice for vegging or supplementary lighting to give a more balanced spectrum in a flowering setup. Ceramic Discharge Metal Halide (also known as CDM or CMH) grow lights have risen considerably in popularity in the last few years. They […]
Shine a little Light on me! A grow lamp consists of 3 main parts – the ballast, the lamp and the reflector. The job of the ballast is to convert mains electricity into a form that can fire and run a lamp as efficiently as possible. The main differences between different ballasts are whether they […]
Building on the success of the much loved Terpinator, Purpinator gives you the ability to bring out your plants natural genetics to create richer colours, aromas and tastes, but how does it do that?… Purpinator naturally stimulates & activates certain intra-cellular biochemical processes within your plants to facilitate increased production of important flavonoids like anthocyanins, […]
So, you?ve got everything nailed down ? you?ve mastered your lighting, environment and feeding and you?re pulling in large quantities of high-grade produce. What next? Well, if this is you, the thing to investigate is carbon dioxide (CO2) supplementation. CO2 levels are one of the key factors that dictate rates of photosynthesis. Plants take the […]
