Indoor growers will agree that successful indoor growing operations are both an art and science. Without the proper supplies, however, indoor growing is utterly impossible. Growers Trust has recently introduced an entire line of indoor growing tools that are sure to fulfill all of your crops’ needs. To begin with, it is important to understand that growers who are not educated on the right techniques of indoor growing will quickly realize just how difficult it is. For instance, do you fully understand the intricacies of nutrient deficiencies? Do you know how to combat heat stress in your plants? The basics of growing are overlooked all too often and the results are thousands of wasted dollars and tons of wasted time.

Today we will highlight a couple of Growers Trust’s most popular indoor growing supplies:

  1. Gorilla Grow Tent: professionally designed for both experts and beginners, this kit is tall, thick, strong, and safe for growing the most high-quality crops around
  2. Grow Tent Lite: engineered with growers in mind, the new Lite Line boasts adjustable height, the best zippers in the industry, a 100% steel interlocking frame, and tool pouches built for convenience.

Using the correct tools and supplies gives growers the opportunity to double their yields. One of the most common issues with indoor growing is the limitation in height due to small tents. The products above are constructed to adjust to your growing crops. Another common problem is a lack of budget, particularly for beginner growers. All of Growers Trust’s products are built with efficiency in order to offer our customers the best prices in the industry.

Phosphorus plays an essential role in plants from growth to structure to energy and is a nutrient that cannot be ignored. The general health of a plant depends on the level of phosphorus that said plant receives and stores. Unlike some of the other essential nutrients, the functions of phosphorus cannot be performed by any other of the nutrients. Critical in optimizing both growth and reproduction in plants, every grower should have a strategy in place to make sure that their crops’ phosphorus levels are adequate. Growers Trust has developed a product, Phosphorus Pro that has truly changed the foliar industry for the better.

Enhancing crops’ ability to battle abiotic stress and fungal disease, Phosphorus Pro gives plants the opportunity to thrive. Some of the most notable benefits of Phosphorus Pro include:

  • Drought resistance improvement
  • Promotion of fruit ripening
  • Enhanced quality of vegetables and fruits
  • Promotion of rooting
  • Prevents phosphorus deficiencies

Powdery mildew is typically growers and gardeners’ worst enemy. With the ability to quickly infiltrate and destroy crops of all kinds, protecting your harvest from a powdery mildew infestation is absolutely essential. Soybeans is a crop that has grown in popularity significantly over the last several years. With the change in many diets and a push towards avoiding the consumption of meat, soybeans have become a household item. As such, protecting your soybean crops from powdery mildew attacks is essential to the productivity and profitability of your farm.

Powdery mildew on soybeans is an issue that reaches farms throughout the world. Since powdery mildew thrives in cool temperatures, this time a year is critical for safeguarding your harvests. Late-planted soybeans are the most susceptible to powdery mildew attacks due to the timing of cooler weather late in the growing season. Recognizing an infiltration is essential to saving your soybeans, so look out for the following symptoms:

  • Green and yellow islands on the leaves
  • Defoliation
  • Interveinal necrosis
  • Necrotic specks
  • Leaf blades crinkle

Keep an eye out for powdery mildew on the cotyledons, stems, pods, and most often on the upper surface of the plant leaves. Not only is powdery mildew dangerous to your soybean crops, but the disease it is typically paired with additional pathogens. Therefore, it can be hard for growers to determine the amount of powdery mildew that caused the crop damage compared to negative effects of additional pathogens. At any rate, using an organic fertilizer to protect your soybeans from powdery mildew outbreaks and avoid them altogether is imperative. Purchase a powdery mildew killer now to prevent a powdery mildew invasion later.

Growers and gardeners of all kinds are always looking for ways to improve the growth and health of their harvests. One of the most important elements of healthy plants begins in the soil. Soils that are rich in nutrients allow for plants to thrive as their roots are able to gain from the nutrients living in that soil. Some of the most successful fertilizers and pesticides available today target soil nutrition to thus improve plant health.

Of these fertilizers and pesticides, the most effective utilize organic and natural nutrients and extracts to provide plant health while considering the chemicals’ effects on the surrounding environment. Sea kelp, for example, is an excellent natural substance that growers use to condition their soil.

Containing more than 70 vitamins, enzymes, and minerals, sea kelp is absolutely essential to the health of a plant. More specifically, the growth hormones present in kelp help to assist plants in processes such as the development of chloroplast as well as cell division and enlargement. One of Growers Trust’s most successful fertilizers is Kelp Boost.

Kelp Boost offers a wide variety of benefits, some of which are as follows:

  • Effectively maximizes photosynthesis
  • Promotes root stimulation causing crop enlargement
  • Promote flowering and fruit setting
  • Supplies essential elements for crop growth
  • Gives crops additional resistance during transport
  • Maintains soil neutralization
  • Promotes recognizable soil improvement

Crops are able to flourish with the assistance from Kelp Boost. As soil improves, root stimulation allows for the crops to grow and thus promote imperative health for the overall harvest. For more information of Kelp Boost, click here!

Organic planting, growing and farming has become increasingly popular in the past few years as more and more people want to understand where their plants and food are coming from. We’ve seen a variety of trends crop up, particularly in urban agriculture, and the latest are living or green walls in farms, gardens, indoor and outdoor living spaces.

What is a living wall?

A living wall is essentially a vertical garden that uses hydroponics to sustain itself. It could be a wall that you construct yourself to separate sections, or it could be an existing wall on a building. The plants on the growing wall are rooted in a structural support system attached to the wall, and they receive their nutrients and water from this support system as opposed to roots in the ground. Living walls even work indoors.

How does it work?

Green walls include soil or some growing component and often include a water delivery system, particularly if it is indoors. They’re made of panels and work in a few different ways depending on the kinds of plants you’re growing. Sometimes, there are individual planters going up a wall; however, there are often mat systems made of different materials to support different plant types.

Why do growers, gardeners, homeowners and planters have them?

Living or green walls are aesthetically pleasing as a diverse design option, but they’re also sustainable. One of the best things about green walls is that they cool down the area they’re in and improve air quality as they reduce surrounding temperatures. They also act as a means of water reuse, especially in arid areas. This is because the water on a vertical wall is not as likely to evaporate or dry out than water in standard horizontal garden spaces. These walls are also a great space alternative for smaller properties, and they provide a user-friendly way to maintain your plants. Many people opt to grow their own herbs on living walls.

What are some other benefits of living walls?

Living walls can help the building they are attached to, by protecting them from temperature changes, diverting water away from building materials, and protecting the structure from the sun and UV radiation. Living wall panels help insulate buildings and can help reduce energy costs for the building over time, particularly in the winter months. The plants also help reduce noise levels by blocking sound.

There are a wide variety of plants that thrive organically in all temperatures and areas on vertical and green walls. Keep an eye on this organic trend when you start thinking about your next growing project.

With the holiday season around the corner and colder temperatures sweeping the nation, it’s time to take action to protect your crops from the cold. Plants acclimate to decreases in temperature over time, so drastic and sudden drops are most dangerous. It’s important to be educated and prepared to maintain your crops with varying temperatures. We talked last week about preparing your plants and crops, and now we’ve condensed those tips along with a few more hints and tricks to make sure your crops are coming in as good as ever come spring.

  1. Keep an eye on the weather reports. Cold snaps can happen, even in sunny south Florida. Preparation is the best form of prevention for your crops.

  2. If cold is coming, apply a layer of mulch or green manure, also known as cover crops, to insulate your crops. This can prevent the soil from getting too cool, but be sure to rake it away when the weather gets warmer.

  3. Cover your sensitive crops with a quilt or sheet. Tarp these crops on particularly cold nights when frost is on the forecast. Take it off in daylight hours to make sure the crops get adequate sun exposure.

  4. If a freeze is not on the forecast, be sure to water the crops and soil around them. Wet soil absorbs more heat during the day and can radiate that heat at night. You can trap that heat with insulation.

  5. Create barriers with fences or other plants to protect more sensitive plants and crops from harsh winds.

  6. Think about windbreaks and microclimates in your field of crops. Winds from certain directions and varying levels can affect how cold temperatures affect your crops.

  7. Don’t prune as much at the end of summer into early fall. This can cause new growth that may be more susceptible to changes in temperature.

  8. Weaker plants are much more susceptible to the cold. Inspect for pests and bugs to keep your crops healthy. Treat accordingly.

  9. After a freeze, water your crops to help thaw the soil.

Changing temperatures are manageable as long as you know the signs and take action. Take the time now to make sure your crops are prepared, so you yield the best crops possible once spring rolls around. No need to worry while you’re celebrating the holidays with your family and friends. Happy growing, and happy holidays!
