No, you are not hallucinating…your hydroponics plants do talk to you. They send signals to you through their leaves, kind of like smoke signals. Learn their language, give your plants what they need, and they’ll give you those kind harvests you crave. Most of the time, if leaves don’t look good, it’s your plants telling you they’re lacking the essential hydroponics plant nutrients they can only get enough of via their roots. Common indicators are hydroponics leaves that are yellowing, curling, browning, drying up, or even falling off.

Hydroponics maximum yield in your indoor hydroponics urban garden is easier to achieve when you use these smart tactics known by professional commercial growers…

We talk constantly about getting maximum yield from your hydroponics urban garden. What exactly do we mean? First of all, the term urban garden is a take-off from a term that preceded it: Urban Grower. But what exactly does “urban” mean? In almost all definitions, urban is related to cities. So if you have a hydroponics indoor grow room and you live in a rural area, is that an urban garden? Not by strict definition it isn’t.

As a hydroponics grower, you may have heard of compost tea as a way to bring an organic approach into your hydroponics indoor grow room. You may also have heard of adding compost itself to a hydroponics soil mix. Compost can be a super-potent blend of organic nutrients that are easily available to your hydroponics plants. But it has to be made from the right materials in the right way, or it can be useless or even harmful for your crops.

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is an essential airborne hydroponics plant nutrient and at the same time it’s a “greenhouse gas” that takes a heavy toll on the environment. Many urban areas have intermittent “CO2 domes” containing trapped layers of CO2 and other emissions. That dirty air is unfit for us to breathe, as is the air in a hydroponics grow room with added CO2. But hydroponics plants benefit from added levels of CO2, so CO2 augmentation is a popular hydroponics indoor grow room strategy that should be done right if it’s done at all.

Tens of thousands of hydroponics growers are concerned about what they learned in the “You’re Being Robbed” article detailing how hydroponics nutrients label police and hydroponics industry monopolists are harming growers. I’ve been contacted by people who want more information about why the article boldly calls out General Hydroponics, Sunlight Supply and their allies such as Hydrofarm. I think the article explains itself well, but here’s even more information that helps you save money, and your hydroponics crops.

Been thinking of giving your indoor hydroponics grow room a rest and growing outdoors? Then come on a journey with me as I continue my series of articles about outdoor growing. After all, spring has sprung, the birds are singing, and I’m sliding down a hill head over heels, reveling in the joys of outdoor gardening as I tumble.

My buddy SK wrote me from his hydroponics garden in the North American hinterlands to tell of his adventures with hydroponics retailers. When SK gets to tap-tapping on his computer keyboard, he gives you a pretty good picture of what it feels like sometimes to be a hydroponics grower. Here’s his raw, uncensored report from the hydroponics equipment and supplies front lines…

When you have limited space or budget but big dreams about using hydroponics to grow massive harvests, you can enjoy the micro-garden approach that makes good hydroponics things happen in small spaces.

When it comes to hydroponics grow room and hydroponics gardening planning, you get a good feeling when you do it right. Many hydroponics growers have learned the hard way. I recall an embarrassing grow room situation in which my lack of planning made things harder if not impossible. I started several strains of seeds at the same time, even though each strain had radically different growing characteristics. I should have known better, but I underestimated the differences.

Hydroponics lighting comes in many shapes and sizes, and it’s among the most important hydroponics gear you use as an indoor hydroponics grower. HID, HPS, MH, LED, T-5, plasma lighting- hydroponics lights choices can seem like rocket science. Let’s take a few moments to shed some light on hydroponics lighting…

Growers have expressed a lot of interest in soil mixes, and we’ve been looking at how you can create an ideal hydroponics soil mix while at the same time amping up growth and yields using hydroponics nutrients and bloom boosters. Here’s what you need to know…

In a previous article we provided you an ideal hydroponics soil mix so you could make a recipe that works well in grow and bloom phase and can also be used with your hydroponics nutrients. Based on feedback from several hydroponics growers, here’s some additional insight into growing hydroponics crops using soil…

My buddy Hank is one of those guys who is slow to change and stays with what he knows. I’m sure you know people like him. They’ve had the same car, or clothes, or computer, or love affair until things are near worn out, even if it’s not working so well for them. It’s not that they’re trying to save money or are satisfied with what they have so much as they’re afraid to change. Well Hank was like that with his General Hydroponics three-part hydroponics nutrients. He’d complain about them, but when I suggested he try new nutrients, he’d go ballistic…

For many hydroponics gardeners, Holland is the sweet land of high intensity lights, Grodan rockwool, and other hydroponics delights. Holland’s reputation as a hydroponics haven is based on the fact that this small country produces a large percentage of Europe’s fresh produce in hydroponics greenhouses that are so numerous you can see the orange glow of HPS lamps when you fly in to Amsterdam at night. You know you want spring break in Amsterdam, so RosebudMag.com is gifting you the insider tips on your ultimate hydroponics gardener’s vacation right now…
