Hydroponics 201: Intro to Plant Nutrients

hosted by AgTech X

Wednesday, June 12, 2019

AgTech X Co-Lab @ Agritecture
40 Bushwick Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11206 United States


You’ve done a little experimentation with hydroponics on your own – perhaps taken an introductory class – and are comfortable with some of the basics.

Now you’re looking to take things to the next level. Maybe you want to build a new system, try growing new plants, or you’re just seeking better results with what you’re currently growing. Before you spend money on equipment, expensive lights, or new seeds, learn more about what your plants need to grow and thrive under any conditions: proper nutrition! 

In this class, you’ll learn what plant nutrients are; how to ensure you’re picking the right fertilizer for what you’re looking to grow; and understanding the various metrics for maintaining healthy nutrition.

She has worked as a lab assistant, grower, and farm manager at five small hydroponics operations in and around NYC, and is currently at the Brooklyn Grange as greenhouse manager. Maya is also an all-around plant nerd and loves teaching workshops like this one!
