In hydroponic systems, various nutrients are added to provide essential elements for plant growth and development.

Let's dive into the different nutrients we use in hydroponics and understand why they are important. Here's a breakdown of the nutrients in our nutritonic formula and the roles they play in the healthy growths of your plants.

Nitrogen (N)

Nitrogen is like a plant's energy drink. It helps plants grow big and green by making them produce more leaves and stems. It's an important building block for proteins and helps plants make their own food through a process called photosynthesis.

Phosphorus (P)

Phosphorus is a superhero for roots. It helps plants develop strong and healthy roots, making them able to take up water and nutrients from the solution. It also plays a vital role in flower and fruit development.

Potassium (K)

Potassium is like a bodyguard for plants. It helps plants fight off diseases and pests, making them strong and resistant. It also helps in the formation of fruits and seeds, making them tasty and full of nutrients.

Calcium (Ca)

Calcium is a plant's construction worker. It helps build strong cell walls, giving plants structure and support. It's especially important for preventing a condition called blossom end rot, which can affect fruits.

Magnesium (Mg)

Magnesium is like a plant's green paint. It's a key ingredient in chlorophyll, the pigment that makes plants green and helps them absorb sunlight. Without magnesium, plants cannot make food through photosynthesis.

Iron (Fe)

Iron is like a plant's blood. It helps plants carry oxygen and nutrients throughout their bodies. It's also essential for making chlorophyll and enabling plants to perform photosynthesis effectively.

Manganese (Mn)

Manganese is like a plant's helper. It assists in many important chemical reactions happening inside plants, including the conversion of sunlight into energy. It keeps plants healthy and growing well.

Zinc (Zn)

Zinc is like a plant's multitool. It helps plants make important proteins and enzymes for growth and development. It also helps in the production of plant hormones, which regulate various plant processes.

Copper (Cu)

Copper is a plant's handyman. It assists in many enzyme systems and helps plants perform essential functions like photosynthesis and respiration. It's also involved in the formation of plant tissues.

Boron (B)

Boron is a plant's architect. It helps build and strengthen cell walls, ensuring proper growth and development. It's especially important for flower formation and the production of seeds.

Molybdenum (Mo)

Molybdenum is like a plant's chef. It helps plants convert nitrogen into a form that they can use for growth. It's crucial for healthy plant growth and proper functioning of enzymes.


In hydroponics, we carefully balance and provide these nutrients to plants in just the right amounts. By giving plants the nutrients they need, we can help them grow into strong, healthy, and productive members of our gardens.
