Generally, plants grow by absorbing nutrients from the soil, air from the atmosphere and water from either a hose or the sky. A plants ability to do this depends on the quality of the soil. Soil contains a combination of sand, clay, silt, and organic matter. The soil acidity and the texture determines the extent to which nutrients are available to plants. The texture and the ph of soil is of utmost importance. Texture of the soil will determine how well the water and nutrients are retained in the soil. The desired range of the soil ph should be between 6.0 to 6.5. The ph will affect the availability of the nutrients and make them more readily available to your plants. One other benefit of this is microbial populations increase. Microbes convert the N2 (nitrogen) and S (sulfur) to food plants can use. All soil is not created equally. That’s why it is important to use Plant Growth Enhancers (PGE’s) to provide your plants the necessary Macro and Micro nutrients they need.
