Crop Steering with Rock Wool

Crop Steering with Rock Wool   In this article we will look at crop steering with rock wool using precision irrigation methods for saturation and dry back. Crop steering is the maximizing of growth rates, minimizing nutrient waste, pushing a crops potential for aromas, yields, essential oils, etc. Rock wool over all other mediums offers this much precision at the growers fingertips. Rockwool is unique in design and function. Volcanic rock is melted down into thin quasi dense fibers making...

Garden Cooling 101

Cooling your indoor garden or outdoor green house during the summer is crucial to a successful garden. There are different ways to do this with benefits to each method. When plants are at an optimal tempureture their stoma (pores on the surface of their leaves) stay closed and they use less resources to stay healthy. A properly cooled room leads to healthier plants and better yields. Air conditioning units are a great way to cool a garden, but the waste...

Basic Propagation

Cloning also known as asexual propagation is the process of growing a new plant by cutting off a piece from a parent plant and duplicating that plant in a separate pot. Gardeners do this cloning/cutting methods to quickly reproduce plants with desirable traits. For instance you may have a tomato plant that has incredible yields, is pest resistant, grows compact, and/or is a fast grower compared to all other of the same family. People clone plants because they want to...

Growing With Co2

Carbon Dioxide or CO2 is the building block for proper plant growth and important for all life on this planet. Plants pull off the C from CO2 and spit back out the O2 providing all living creatures with the much needed oxygen. But why do plants need CO2? The carbon molecule in CO2 is used as a carbohydrate for energy during light cycles as part of the process of photosynthesis. Carbon Dioxide provides sugars/energy that plants will in turn use...
