Frequently asked questions
I'm a first time grower. Which nutrients should I use?
No matter which version you choose, our Starter guide always includes easy to use nutrients. Both the organic and mineral nutrients are ideal for starting growers.
But...if you're looking for the simplest grow, we recommend Alga Grow and Bloom. These algae-based nutrients are converted by micobiological soil life. Thanks to this, you don’t need to monitor EC or pH.
This is not the case for Terra Grow and Terra Bloom, making these nutrients a bit more challenging to use. But the potential rewards are greater too, with faster results and bigger yields right around the corner.
What is the difference between organic and mineral nutrients?
The source of plant nutrients can be either organic or mineral. An organic source is of plant-, animal or even geological origin, while a mineral source is usually man-made. As a rule of thumb an organic fertiliser gets you the best taste, while a mineral fertiliser leads to greater yields.
Organic nutrients are friendly for plants, people and animals. They need to be broken down by bacteria and other soil life before the plant can take them up with its roots. Organic nutrients get you the best tasting end products.
The big advantage of mineral nutrients is that they can be taken up by the plant immediately after watering. No digestion by soil life or enzymes necessary! This is why they get you results fast. With mineral nutrients, your plant will grow quickly and get you a nice fat yield.
Why can I only order one Starter guide?
It’s all in the name: our Starter guide is meant for starting growers. And since you can only start once, you can only order once too. The guide is the same for both variants, so you’d have a duplicate anyway. If you want to try the other type of nutrients as well, you can find them in a sales point near you with our Shoplocator.
