    Modular flood and drain systems have become the most popular pot-based option for growing hydroponically. With a high level of flexibility thanks to customizable flood times and flood durations, we thought it would be a good idea to give you some detailed information on fine-tuning one of the very best examples out there - The IWS System. This article aims to share valuable practical advice from our knowledgeable and experienced ‘Growing Experts’ that will help you achieve the best results possible. The focus is on what to do once you have everything set up – if you need a comprehensive guide to assembling a system, refer to the ‘IWS Flood and Drain Instructions’ booklet that comes with the system. Helpfully this information can be applied to other pot-based modular flood and drain systems such as the ‘Multiflow’.

    Correctly Incorporating Silicon Into Your Feeds

    The response to our ‘Food For Thought’ article on Silicon has been very positive indeed! Many growers commented that they were previously unaware of its ability to strengthen plants – toughening them up against insect attacks, disease and unfavourable environmental factors (e.g. heat) – as well as the improvements that materialise in relation to nutrient uptake, translocation, photosynthesis and yields. Whilst adding the element to the nutrients, boosters and water in your root feed is not difficult, you do need to follow certain guidelines. Find out what happens when you add Silicon correctly... and also what happens when you don't!

    What is the Oxy-Dripper/Brummie Bubbler?

    History is littered with numerous examples of great innovations that have resulted from combining the features of two or more existing products.

  • A Lesson In Lamps: Hanging Heights

    A Lesson In Lamps: Hanging Heights

    This is the first article of a two-part series that aims to take a closer look at lamps, considering aspects such as design specifications, maximum achievable coverage of light and tips for usage. Right now though the focus starts with recommended hanging heights of High Intensity Discharge lamps (think SOLAAR, Grolux, Sodium Lamps, Metal Halide Lamps, etc) and Fluorescent Lamps (e.g T5HO Sunblasters and Eco-Lights). Hopefully this should prove to be of use, as it is something that you need to consider throughout an entire crop!
