SEA OF GREEN

Sea of green is a technique of cultivating a large number of plants in a small area. Sea of green allows plants to be positioned closer and flowered sooner, this method allows less lighting to be used and still produces a good yield, as there are many more plants.

SPECTRUM

Spectrum is the band of colours that can be emitted by a light source. Most commonly used for hydroponics are blue spectrum lights for growing plants, and red spectrum lights for flowering plants. There are many other coloured lights available with a different colour spectrum produced.

SPIDERMITE

Probably your worst enemy indoors are spidermites, which mainly live on the underside of leaves in hot and dry conditions. Adult mites are about 1mm in size and will lay eggs on the leaves and then spin silk webs for protection from predators. Spider mites will puncture plant cells and suck away all the goodness from your plants, normally leaving yellow or white spots on leaves. If left they can multiply fast and cause havoc and eliminate your crop with ease.

STERILIZE

To clean and remove all germs and bacteria is to sterilize.
