Modern Plant Nutrition ( This article has been reformatted and edited by PDI not written).
1. Over the last ten years, hydroponic plant science has moved away from the simple addition of bare bones nutrients to a sterile root zone. It is now understood that there are more factors to plant nutrition than essential macro and micronutrients.
Modern plant nutrition has three main areas of concentration
1. Basic plant nutrition: Newer nutrients are now chelated, using agents such as fulvic and amino acids
to make the uptake of micronutrients and other charged molecules much easier and more accessible to
the plant.
2. Providing hormones and metabolic enhancers: There are a variety of nutrient additives and foliar sprays whose essential function is to speed the plant up, making the plant work faster and harder, have more energy, and ultimately produce more…
3. Root zone health: The importance of healthy roots can not be overstated. There has been alot of research in this area…
Plant Growth Hormones
1. Natural plant growth regulators (or plant hormones) are gibberellic acid , ethylene gas, abscisic acid (ABA), 4 auxins, and several cytokinins, which all have their own specific effects on growth and development in plants. The main advancement that has been made which is useful in hydroponics is with cytokins. Most cytokin research has been concentrated in figuring out the appropriate andmost elevated amount that can be delivered to the plant without any harmful side effects.
There is a wide range of products now available that are made of ascophylum nodosum, the north Alaskan sea kelp form which most cytokins etc. are derived from.
Growth Max – A seaweed extract made for foliar feeding plants. An excellent and inexpensive way to give your plants an extra boost.
Nitrozime – very popular- growers swear by the results – Nitrozime provides cytokinins to help control and regulate germination, root development, nutrition uptake, plant tissue composition, flowering, seed and fruit set.
B’cuzz – Atami’s line of stimulators are formulated from a combination of two kinds of seaweed, Laminaria digitata and Ascophyllum nodosum. These solutions help plants handle stress – 3 formulas, one for rooting, one for growth and one for bloom.
At Plantscape Designs Inc. , we apply many of these techniques with our interior plant cityscapes in Boston, MA locations .

“I sincerely want to thank you and your staff for your superior customer service. As you know, initially I engaged another plant service for leasing and maintaining plants in our new office. His lower price swayed me to him, even though I believed your organization to be more professional .


My decision soon proved to be the wrong one. The adage ‘ you get what you pay for’ is appropriate here. With plants dying due to neglect and swarms of Fungus gnats everywhere from these plants, I remembered you and PDI. You were extremely sympathetic to my situation and even waived the normally required deposit for new accounts. After I canceled our unacceptable plant service, you hD NEW ONES INSTALLED THE NEXT DAY, WHICH WAS IMPORTANT FOR US because we had a big client in the office that day. You also treated all the plants for bugs at no charge, and now we are happily ‘gnat – free’.


I can’t thank you enough for saving us from what had become an unmanageable situation. Your service has continually been excellent: when a tree in the general manager’s office was dying, you replaced it right away without any hassle. You take a proactive approach, and it has made us very loyal customers and supporters of your business.


I am very satisfied with your service and would be pleased to offer an unconditional recommendation on your behalf to any of your future clients .”
