Fox Farm Nutrients Vs. General Hydroponics: Which Is The Better Liquid Fertilizer?

Hydroponics Liquid Fertilizer

The idea of growing plants without soil is fascinating, especially when you see stunning living walls in popping up all over the city. Though still a new concept, most people have embraced it and liquid fertilizer is the best way to guarantee you high yields in hydroponics gardening. Fox farm Nutrients and General Hydroponics are both the leading sales when it comes to liquid fertilizers but, how do the two compare to each other? In this post, we shall review in detail fox farm vs general hydroponics stating the advantages and disadvantages of each.

 

Why use liquid fertilizers?

In hydroponics plants are grown without soil. Where do these plants get nutrients from? The hydroponic nutrients have to be dissolved in the water and there are two ways in which you can do this; purchase the nutrients separately then mix them as per the requirement of the plants or purchase ready-made liquid fertilizer.

Well, as much as the first option is still an alternative you must be goods with numbers. Different plants thrive in a given PH and require different nutrients at different stages in life. That’s so much hustle if you are mixing the ingredients all by yourself. Liquid fertilizers are highly recommended since everything is pre-mixed and all you have to do is dissolve it in water.

Fox Farm Nutrients

          1. Fox Farm Liquid Fertilizer

It is not by chance that fox farm liquid fertilizer has made quite a name for itself when it comes to liquid fertilizer for hydroponics. Fox farm is specifically designed for hydroponic farming and come with a clear set of instructions, making it ideal even for beginners with no prior knowledge in hydroponic farming.

fox farm nutrients

Fox farm liquid fertilizers help increase yields and come in a 3 pack combo. Grow big, tiger bloom and big bloom.

  • Grow big

In the 3 pack combo, grow big is more of like an engine. It is responsible for voluminous and compact growth if plants. Grow big is ideal to use during the early stages of growth and the vegetative phase since it promotes the development of relatively larger fruits and the fast growth of leaves, stems, and roots. If your plants are experience stunted growth or are on the blink of drying out, grow big can bring the plants back to life if applied correctly.

  • Tiger bloom

Tiger bloom is applied when plants are on the flowering stage. This particular liquid fertilizer is high in phosphorous and nitrogen essential for bud development and flowering. In the instruction, tiger bloom should be applied after 5 weeks but this can vary depending on the types of plants grown.

  • Big bloom

It contains organic components and fit to use throughout all stages of growth. Big bloom can also be used plants grown normally on the soil.

The three combo pack makes up Fox Farm Liquid Fertilizer. Though relatively expensive it is suitable to use on just any plant grown hydroponically.

 

General Hydroponics

          2. General Hydroponics Combo Set

General Hydroponics Micro Combo Set contains a complete set of nutrients. The combo set has primary, secondary and micro-nutrients mixed to form a liquid fertilizer that always guarantees high yields.

General Hydroponics

Most liquid fertilizers struggle with solubility well, this is not the case with general hydroponics. It is highly soluble to ensure maximum nutrient uptake. The fertilizer dissolves in cold ice water making the combo set effective even in cold environments.

Plants are very sensitive when it comes to PH levels; general hydroponics allows you to adjust the system so as to fit the various plant needs. The PH is balanced and ideal for just any plant and hence the popularity of the combo set containing FloraGro, Flora Bloom and Flora micro

  • FloraGro

FloraGro is used when plants are the vegetative phase. The pack contains nutrients that help in the fast growth of leaves and roots. When you use FloraGro, the leaves will be more compact and roots well established.

  • Flora Bloom

When plants are on the flowering stage they need Flora Bloom. The nutrient pack is specifically designed to help promote flowering in plants. That’s not all Flora Bloom also plays a major role in improving the overall taste and flavor by increasing the production of essential oils.

  • Flora Micro

Flora micro acts as the foundation of the three. It is applied to provide a balance of essential nutrients as well as increase plants resistance to diseases. The pack is suitable to use throughout all stages of growth.

General Hydroponics Micro Combo Set is definitely a top pick if you are in search of a liquid fertilizer that will not only increase your plants’ yields but also help improve the overall flavor.

 

Final verdict

In head to head Fox Farm vs General Hydroponics, the two seems evenly matched. However, General Hydroponics seems to have a slight advantage due to the fact that it is highly soluble, has a complete set of nutrients and contributes to improving the overall flavor of plants.

It is my hope that you found this article useful and you can now tell the difference on Fox Farm vs General Hydroponics. If you are setting up a green wall within your home, or are figuring out the best way to grow your herbs, lighting and nutrients go hand in hand when it comes to hydroponics.

Beautiful looking light that works!

Highly recommend this light for anyone in need of a quality grow light that isn’t an eye sore. I purchased last year to supplement the light needs of my fiddle leaf fig. Her home is in not the most ideal corner of my living room, but with the Aspect light she has continued to thrive! The natural daylight colour isn’t too warm or cool and looks more fashionable than utilitarian. Would definitely buy again.

So helpful and extremely fast with shipping!

I had bought a wide beam grow light for one set of plants that works amazing! They are growing new leaves and looking the healthiest they have in months! I bought a second bulb as a narrow beam and after about a week realized I should have gotten a wide beam. The team member was so great in helping me switch it out and I got the new bulb very quick! Thank you, you guys are great!
