A Quick Intro to Propagating Plants from Cuttings:
Growing a plant from a cutting offers at least two distinct advantages over growing from seed?
- Plants grown from cuttings will often grow more quickly than those grown from seed
- Plants grown from cuttings have the exact same genetics as those of the original plant
Plants tend to grow much more quickly in hydroponics than they do in soil, so that’s not why l grow some of my...
Indoor Gardening isn’t exactly a new thing, but LED’s are changing the way we light our indoor gardens. LED lights are more efficient than traditional fluorescent and incandescent lights. That’s because LED lights convert nearly all of their energy (95%) into light, while other lights turn a significant amount of energy into heat. But, there’s another very important reason that LED’s are more efficient when it comes to growing plants. With LED lights, we have the rather unique ability to customize the type of light that is emitted, and that means we’re not wasting energy to create light that...
When growing with hydroponics, ensuring you have the right nutrient mix is essential to both the growth and taste of your plants.
Adding nutrients and pH balancers to your hydroponic solution should be a multi-step process. And before you begin, you should always make sure that you have a hydroponic TDS (Total Dissolved Liquids) or EC (Electrical Conductivity) sensor and a pH sensor available. These sensors are relatively inexpensive. They’re available at your local hydroponics shop, Amazon.com, and soon IGWorks.com. If you’ve purchased an iHarvest, you will...
