Combining Trichoderma with other Beneficial Hydroponics Products

Every experienced hydroponics grower already knows the wonders that trichoderma can work in a hydroponic system. To have beneficial bacteria is wonderful, but if you want to truly retain and help those beneficial bacteria thrive, you need to make sure that you create a highly favorable environment in your reservoir. There are lots of way to do this. But one of the most important ways is by adding a product that contains trichoderma to your hydroponic system. Trichoderma will increase root mass, help boost your plants immunity and has a lot of other impressive benefits as well. But if you want to totally ensure that you are experiencing all of the available benefits of these powerful fungi, you need to consider what other products you will use in conjunction with them.

Beneficial Bacteria – It is true, that if you add trichoderma it is possible that beneficial bacteria will grow on their own. But these strains of bacteria won’t be quite as potent as they can be. If you really want your beneficial fungi to help your plant get that extra shot of nutrients that they will need to grow rapidly and provide superior yields, you should invest in a high quality product that contains beneficial bacteria. These contain strains of plant-improving bacteria that are much stronger than average. Once the trichoderma has helped your roots grow thick, you need to make sure you have more nutrients available to them to help ensure that your plants are getting all the nutrients they need. Beneficial bacteria can help break down these nutrients into the kinds of ions that make it easier for your roots to absorb them, thus significantly increasing nutrient uptake.

Organic Plant Tea – Chemical nutrients and organic nutrients both have their advantages and disadvantages, but if you want to get the most benefit out of your trichoderma, you should add at least some organic nutrients. Trichoderma’s natural environment is soil, where organic material is plentiful. Fortunately, there are several organic hydroponic products that can help you create a similar environment in your reservoir. Some of the most potent organic nutrients include kelp, which has a lot of growing stimulants and plant hormones that can be particularly beneficial during the vegetative stage of growth. You should also consider using something that contains bat guano, which has been shown to help give plants a healthy boost of nitrogen and phosphorus for powerful vegetative and flowering growth and development.

Air Pump – Whenever you add a biological element to your reservoir, you should always make sure you do something to keep your reservoir agitated and full of oxygen. Keeping the water solution moving will help ensure that the beneficial fungi will be evenly distributed throughout the reservoir. Otherwise, it may simply clump in single area, which may mean it won’t enter your root zone efficiently. A good supply of air will also help reduce odors that can sometimes increase when using organic materials and help keep your beneficial bacteria healthy by providing them with plenty of oxygen.

Over time, components within the nutrients settle on the bottom of the bottle. When you pour a bottle without shaking it, you can potentially be pouring out an unbalanced solution. Shaking up the nutrient bottle ensures you are pouring the right blend into your reservoir, giving your crops the nutrition they need.

Usually, it’s not a problem. But some products are incompatible with each other and can damage your plants when they’re used together. For example, bloom boosters with high PK numbers or low-grade silica products can destabilize your nutrient mix and cause nutrient lockout.

Nutrient manufacturers design their products to be used with each other. In doing so, they include specific portions of each nutrient in each product, so crops receive the right nutrition through each stage of the grow cycle. When you stick with one manufacturer, you don’t have to worry about inadvertently destabilizing your nutrient mixture. One example of why you need to stick with only one manufacturer’s products is Advanced Nutrients’ pH Perfect line. These products are designed to keep your crops’ root zone within a specific pH range. When you use them alongside products from another manufacturer, we can’t guarantee your root zone will maintain its optimal pH level.
