How to Get the Most Benefit From Your Hydroponic Newsletter

Apr 28, 2008
One of the best things you can do to ensure your success in hydroponics is to subscribe to a hydroponics newsletter. The world of hydroponic growing is ever changing and the best way to keep up to date on the ways to increase your yield and improve the size of your buds and flavor of your vegetables is to get a periodical in your inbox every month.

The best tool a gardener can have is information and a good newsletter can give you tons of useful tips for a few dollars or even free. But the information you receive can sometimes be overwhelming, so it can sometimes be confusing as to what will be the best way to apply your newfound knowledge.

Ensure Your Newsletter is from a Reputable Source - You may be surprised to hear that not every hydroponic newsletter comes from an experienced grower who has countless growing seasons under their belt. In fact, the large majority of these newsletters come from low-end growers who think that successfully growing a couple tomato plants in their hall closet makes them an expert.

Make certain that your newsletter comes from a company, organization, or person who has real world experience growing hydroponically and does not necessarily just rehash advice that they may have heard elsewhere.

Test a Small Area First - When you read of some new breakthrough that promises to vastly increase your yield, it can sometimes be tempting to apply it to your entire crop immediately. But when it comes to the safety of your plants, you do not want to take any chances. Try the new advice on a single plant first, so you can be sure the information will actually be beneficial. Changing some factors can sometimes be easier than others, especially when you have large, interconnected systems. This is why it might be a good idea to grow one or two "test plants" in a smaller hydroponic system separate from your main system that allow you to experiment to your heart's content.

Make Sure the Advice Pertains to Your Particular Conditions - There's nothing worse than reading in a hydroponic newsletter that your plants might actually benefit from a slight drop of the pH level in the nutrient solution, but only discovering later that will only help you if you are using rockwool as a medium, while you choose to use coco coir. There are so many factors and variables that go into successful hydroponic growing that a piece of a advice that might help one grower might actually harm another grower's plants. So before you rush off and make those adjustments, make certain that the any new research you are reading about applies to your particular hydroponic system, lighting system, medium and plants.

Find a Newsletter that Helps Growing on Your Scale - Some hydroponic newsletters specialize in a certain scale of growing. So some might contain mostly advice to the hobby grower who likes growing vegetables in their basement, while others are targeted towards large, for-profit greenhouses. Make sure the information can really help your conditions and will work within your budget.
