    Expert Opinions: Root Stimulators

    Root porn is something I can unashamedly say I am a huge fan of (hopefully noone edits the word ‘root’ in this sentence before print). It’s somewhat a growing phenomena in the hydroponic world, particularly in online circles. 

    To see crisp-white, healthy functioning root systems is something that just brings a warm feeling to my green-fingered loins. Particularly completely bare, aeroponic roots when they are still all white and shiny, dripping wet and looking both peculiar and magical in their natural naked splendour. (I’m sure I could have made more of the possible innuendos in this paragraph but it’s bordering on creepy as it is).

    Organic Hydroponics

    We were lucky enough to pick the brains of BioBizz's research department in new developments in the organic world, here's what they had to say...

    Organic hydroponics: Surely a dream for most modern growers and gardeners. To have a system that would give you the quality and taste of organics combined with the ease of use and automation of hydroponics would be the ideal solution for many a green fingered reader.

    And would possibly be heralded as the all-time ultimate growing system. There have been claims over the years by many companies who would have us believe that the solution is already here and that we only need to buy their specific product and all will be well (hardly surprising in this industry). However, this unfortunately isn’t yet the case, and we may be still a long way from finding a truly workable solution.

    Pimp My Grow Tent

    Straight up pimpery of 1.2m Grow tents. We pitch two stores head to head in a balls to the wall challenge, to see who comes up with the best bottom bitch (tent kit wise that is).

    We’ve all done it: slowly wandered around your favourite grow store ogling all the shiny, state of the art toys they have to play with. Imagining to yourself how fricking awesome it would be to have your pick of everything they have on display, and get it all set up in order to craft the ultimate grow tent. It’s usually at this point that a big sad face would come over most people.

    The minute you realise the crumpled tenners in your back pocket won’t stretch to get you even a fraction of the equipment you would like, let alone the supersized bacon double cheese burger meal you’d planned on the way home. So you shuffle off to the counter and with a long sigh you pay for a small bottle of ‘boost’ (in recognition of all the money you normally spend), then grab your change and walk off sporting your best limp, whilst throwing up a fist or possibly peace signs up on your way out.

    Faves - BudBox Utility Shelf

    They say when you can’t build out, build up. And this is the philosophy underpinning our second product; Global Hydro Ltd’s BudBox Utility Shelf. The Utility Shelf – designed to fit into most tent sizes – is a sturdy wire mesh that easily clips into place and gives you the dual option of acting as a crop support or allowing you to create levels within your grow tent. Leonardo Da Vinci once wrote “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” and if that is indeed true Global Hydro have created one sophisticated piece of kit here. HYDROMAG put it through its paces.

Well our regular feature Favourites has no desire to buck this trend. First up we have the HOMEbox Equipment Board from German company Eastside Impex. All gardeners – or indeed almost anyone – can appreciate the importance of having a tidy workspace. Research shows it leads to raised morale, a greater sense of professionalism, increased efficiency, and of course there’s the dreaded but nevertheless relevant health & safety angle. Not a million miles away from being a vertical BudBox Utility Shelf, the HOMEbox Equipment Board snaps into your grow tent and acts as a “motherboard” for all your tent’s electrical kit. Let’s take a look at it.
