Hydroponics - Indoor Horticulture

Hydroponics - Indoor Horticulture represents an educational, in-depth, up-to-date, indoor horticultural growers guide that covers all principles of indoor Hydroponics Indoor Horticulture by Jeffrey Winterborne hydroponic horticulture and gardening. This book contains 110,000 words, with over 300 diagrams, pictures, illustrations, graphs, tables, 3 dimensional CAD renderings, and is printed in full colour.

Hydroponics - Indoor Horticulture examines, explores, dissects and presents a fully comprehensive step by step growers guide, relating to all and every aspect of indoor hydroponic horticulture, with complete chapters on plant biology, propagation, hydroponic systems, nutrients, oxygen, carbon dioxide enrichment, pH, biological pest control, fungi/disease, cuttings/clones, pruning/training, breeding, harvesting, equipment, grow rooms, a full history of hydroponics, and more.

This book goes further than any indoor growers guide has gone before, presented in full colour with 3 dimensional CAD renderings. Hydroponics - Indoor Horticulture quite simply outclasses any other book on the subject... In terms of literal content, quantity, quality and presentation, no other indoor horticulture growers guide can compete, let alone compare.

Plants - A Basic Overview

Before you dive in at the deep end of this book, it is advisable that you gain a basic understanding of what a plant is and what a plant does. The most competent indoor gardeners can learn a lot from the next few pages so don’t skip past thinking that you know about this bit, because most probably you don’t.

Plants can be divided into 3 classes: Cam – which covers most succulent plants; these tend to be low light-loving and high humidity plants. C4 – which covers most grasses; these tend to be medium light-loving and good CO2 using plants. C3 – which covers most high energy plants; these are the flower and fruit bearers of the plant kingdom. High light-loving and excellent CO2 using plants. This book is based around the knowledge of C3 cultivation, which is indeed the most popular type of cultivated plant in hydroponics systems to date. A C3 plant consists of two joined 3-carbon atoms to manufacture sugar. Sugar is 6-carbons, 6- hydrogens and 6-oxygens fused as one.

C3 plants manufacture energy through photosynthesis, which in simple terms is the way plants breathe and grow. The plant uses light, water, nutrient, and CO2 in the atmosphere, then absorbs it and converts it into


sugar, and in so doing, releases oxygen. The plant then moves around sugars, water and nutrients within its structure to create growth. The leaves suck up water from the roots through tubular cells called xylem. The leaves are constantly respiring, evaporating water supplied via the roots and this creates the water tension or pressure that keeps the plant rigid and strong. Leaves then send sugars via photosynthesis down to supply the roots through a tubular cell called the phloem. This creates a perpetual cycle with the roots supplying the leaves with the water they need so that the leaves can supply the roots with the sugars they require and a simple symbiosis is formed. The liquid, being in constant motion, maintains the strength and structure of the plant. A C3 plant can be broken down into 3 main sections: - the roots - the stems - the leaves These three things are the battery, engine and fuel of the plant. If you develop a problem in any one these three areas, the plant will be in quite serious trouble. The alchemy of this truth is “As Above So Below”. Always remember this.
