Hi all,

Welcome to the latest quarterly Somerset Hydroponics newsletter!

Springtime is upon us and soon to be early summer so now may be the time for you to revise your ventilation equipment needs if last summer left your beloved plants panting for a higher airflow to help in keeping the temperatures down. It is also worth considering Humidifiers in the grow room if the temperature rises so high that a healthy humidity level falls below acceptable, but as we are living in good ol' blighty, it may be that a temperature increase and heavy rainfall creates the need to consider a Dehumidifier and for that we have the amazing low wattage (purpose made for the grow room) Pure Factory Dehumidifier. Don’t forget that we are here to help you achieve your growing goals so pick up the phone, drop us an email, poke our Facebook or even Tweet our Twitter (gently!) if you need any advice! 

News

Following on from our last newsletter regarding the awesome RUSH RDWC (recirculating deep water culture) growing system from Nutriculture  we have now removed our highly successful (the Chili crop was amazing!) live demo RUSH growing system from our Secret Jardin DR300W grow tent  to run a new live demo utilising Autopot XL gravity fed growing system. As you can see from the photos below our Aubergine and Twilight Chili seedlings are just about ready to be introduced into a 60/40 mix of Dutch Pro coco and Gold Label clay pebbles. As with previous demos in the DR300W grow tent, the plants will be illuminated by 2x Sunmaster Hobby 600w Variable Digital Air-Cooled Goldstar digital grow light's set at 400watt output to start with until we hit them with the full 660watt boost output. We may throw a curve-ball into the lighting set-up by adding one of the now world famous Budmaster LED grow lights into the equation!!
