Accelerates Root Growth and Development in Hydroponic Grow Systems

Hydro Roots speeds up the development of new roots, thickens root hairs and generally improves the health of existing roots. It's optimised for use in hydroponic grow systems like DWC, NFT and flood & drain systems.


Phosphorus plays a crucial role in root development. It's required for the synthesis of nucleic acids (DNA and RNA), which are fundamental for cell division and the development of new tissue, including roots. Phosphorus assists the growth and proliferation of root cells, contributing to the establishment of a robust and extensive root system.

It is a key component of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the primary energy carrier in cells, critical for energy-dependent processes, including nutrient uptake and the transport systems that support root development and function. 

Phosphorus also plays a role in the signalling pathways and regulatory mechanisms that govern root architecture, influencing roots' responses to environmental conditions and stresses, enhancing the plant's ability to adapt to its surroundings.


Boron's significance can be understood through its involvement in various physiological processes and its influence on cell wall structure and function.

It is crucial for the formation and strength of cell walls through its role in cross-linking pectic polysaccharides, which are essential components of the plant cell wall. This cross-linking helps to maintain cell wall integrity, ensuring that cells can properly expand and mature, which is particularly important for the growing root tips where cells are rapidly dividing and elongating.
