Plant nutrition & supplements for the hobby grower
Plants need three basic elements to live and grow, these basic elements are water, light and CO2. These elements play a crucial role in photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is a form of biosynthesis in which light energy is used to convert carbon dioxide into carbohydrates, such as glucose. In addition to these three basic elements, your crop also uses minerals that are contained in the (potting) soil that your crop absorbs through its roots. These minerals are all present in the plant nutrition to be added.
The three most important elements in plant nutrition are nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K). In addition to these three elements, plant foods contain additional supporting elements such as magnesium (MG) and calcium (CA). All these substances have a different purpose and support the growth and health of your crop. In nature this is constantly supplemented by the rich soil life, this does not happen in your garden or grow tent. This is the reason that you need to make adjustments with plant nutrition and/or supplements.
