Default Re: Banana Hydroponic's?

Richard,

I like to learn new things, it helps to keep my interest. So what are some brand names, or trade names I should look at? What exactly am I looking for to show my bananas that I care?

Michael

The two leading manufacturers are Scotts and Grow More. Both manufacture water-soluble formulas compatible with hydroponics. One approach is to use 15-5-15 "Plus" -- a formula with extra Ca and Mg, along with a liquid or water-soluble potassium supplement that you scale to 0-0-15. A second approach is to use 20-5-30 urea free with a Ca/Mg supplement; e.g., Fert-All Ca/Mg plus.

Grow More has several distribution sites in the U.S. Minimum order is usually $250 and well worth the savings over your standard agriculture supply store.

The Scotts product line of interest is called "Peters Professional". You'll have to purchase from a regional distributor because the factory minimum order is something like 20 pallets.
