4L Holland Secret Micro, Plantlife. 3 Part nutrient system from Canada.
4L Holland Secret Micro, Plantlife. 3 Part nutrient system from Canada. Cutting edge nutrient system that is sediment free for no salt build-up. Designed for hydroponic and aeroponic systems but also works equally well in soil gardens.
There are sixteen essential nutrients that plants require. Three are directly absorbed from the atmosphere (oxygen, carbon and hydrogen); while the other thirteen essential elements must be absorbed through your plant?s growing medium.
The list of thirteen elements is further broken down into three key groups. They are defined as macro, secondary and micro nutrients. Macro Secondary Micro Macro nutrients include: nitrogen (N) phosphorus (P) potassium (K). These are the key elements required for plants throughout their life cycle.
Why should you use Nutrients? Nitrogen is an essential component of amino acids and, therefore, of proteins which include nucleic acids, enzymes, and the green, light-harvesting pigment, chlorophyll. It is also the nutrient which normally produces the greatest yield response in crop plants (photosynthesis).
Phosphorus is an essential part of the enzymes which help the crop to fix light energy. It forms an integral part of nucleic acids, the carriers of genetic information, and is important in stimulating root growth and protein formation.
Potassium is involved in processes which ensure carbon assimilation and the transportation of photosynthates throughout the plant for growth and the storage of sugars and proteins. The potassium ion is also important for water regulation and uptake.
The secondary elements are equally as important but are only required in smaller quantities. These include: potassium (Mg) sulfur (S) calcium (Ca)
Potassium occurs in chlorophyll and is also an activator of enzymes, while sulfur forms part of two essential amino acids which are among the many building blocks of protein. It is also found in vitamin B1 and in several important enzymes. Calcium is required for plant growth, cell division and enlargement. The growth of root and shoot tips and storage organs is also affected by calcium, as it is a component of cell membranes. Calcium is also vital for pollen growth and in the prevention or early leaf fall out.
Finally, there are micro nutrients and these are equally as important but are only required in minute quantities. These are iron (Fe), manganese (Mn), zinc (Zn), boron (B), copper (Cu), molybdenum (Mo) and chlorine (Cl).
