Praise for the Root Spa:
“It’s easy to tell when your plants are supercharged. You don’t need any fancy meter for that—it’s visually apparent. Every time you open the door to your garden your plants almost roar at you! The speed of their development is shocking—even over a single day—they are visibly taller, fuller, bigger, and happier. I love it when my garden is cranking like this.”
How often should I change the hydroponic nutrient solution in my reservoir?
To ensure optimal nutrient availability and freshness, change reservoir solutions completely every 1 to 2 weeks. If needed, top off low reservoir levels with 1/4 strength nutrient solution or plain water.
