For saving space and soil, this method also has several
other benefits, including no soil-borne diseases, no
weeds to pull and no soil to till, run-of-the-mill side
benefits of soil-less gardening.


Single Packs
The reason that liquid nutrients are usually supplied as twin packs is that some of the components are incompatible in concentrate and will cause precipitation when they come together. Once they are diluted into a "working solution" however, there is no problem. There are several good single pack liquid nutrients on the market now, including Formulex. In Formulex, the antagonistic elements are held in a chemical complex to avoid precipitation. It is an ingenious solution to the problem of precipitation and is highly suitable for growing house plants and for all soil gardening.

Twin / Triple Packs
There is no question that for serious hydroponics there is still no better product than a good quality liquid twin or triple pack nutrient solution. Twin and triple packs are very easy to make up and use and they are usually provided with comprehensive instructions to ensure success.

Optimum and Power Gro are well established twin pack nutrients. Optimum and Power Gro have been on the market for over ten years but their formulations have been continually modified and improved in the light of new information and more experience. Ionic and GH Flora Range Triple Pack nutrients provide an unbeatable comprehensive diet of primary and secondary nutrients plus unique pH buffers to keep nutrients fully available to the plants. Optimum, Power Gro, Ionic and G.H Flora Range are now available right across the UK so for supplies or more information, contact Esoteric Hydroponics.
