Research & Development

Carefully inspect your plants regularly. It is much easier to correct a nutrient deficiency or treat a disease if you catch it early. Monitor the colour and patterns of leaves for signs of nutrient deficiencies, check the undersides of leaves for pests such as aphids or mites, and check the surface of your solid growing media for fungus gnats. Your plants will also show signs if something in your set up isn’t quite right, for example long internodal length, burnt or wilted leaves, or a dry substrate may all be tell-tale signs that you should change your set up.
