These products further expand Hydrofarm’s portfolio of innovative and proprietary branded products in the lighting, climate control, nutrients and growing media categories.

New products available include:

Autopilot 4-Light and 8-Light High Power HID Controllers can control multiple 1000W human interface device (HID) lights from one time-clock or controller device.

GroStar pH EC Pens are accurate, durable and easy to use. Backed by 30 years of excellence in scientific electrochemical instruments, all GroStar products are CE and RoHS certified and are manufactured in an ISO 9001:2015 certified factory. Features include a large, three-colour LCD screen, quick calibration, long-lasting replaceable probes with an industry-leading one-year warranty and durable pen bodies equipped with a full two-year warranty.

Plant Success King Crab increases yields, maximises phosphorous uptake, and adds life to the root zone. The active microbes in King Crab were specifically selected to enhance root zone performance during the vegetative stage and increase yields in the flowering stage. With 275 million organisms per mL, these microbes enhance absorption of phosphorous and micronutrients, which is key to higher yields and quality flowers.

Rock Rootinator fortifies plants against negative environmental stress and helps bring sick plants back to health with its updated version of the classic root boosting Super Charge Root Tonic. This new, concentrated formulation complements your current feed for healthy root systems, protection from negative environmental impacts, and assimilation of nutrients for maximum effect. Rock Rootinator grows bright white roots, thick healthy stalks, and lush green vegetation.

Roots Organics Terp Tea Bloom Booster adds a strategic fertility input for your garden. This proprietary ratio of potent ingredients supplements flowering plants in the later stages of development, enhancing blossom vigour. As the result of extensive research and development, Roots Organics Terp Tea Bloom Booster helps bring the ratio of potassium and other primary macronutrients into your targeted range to provide Soluble Potash supplementation that boosts harvest quality and yields. Beneficial bacteria are added to enhance the availability of plant nutrients and to help plants to resist stress.

Roots Organics Terp Tea Microbe Charge delivers beneficial bacteria, mycorrhizal fungi, and a nutrient charge to support vigorous root systems in heavy-feeding, high-yield plants. Recommended for both large and small-scale gardens, this high-quality supplement is simple, effective, and allowed for use in organic crop production. This formula functions as a direct application or, ideally, it can be brewed into a potent tea. Use Terp Tea Microbe Charge as a base amendment to enhance microbial activity, as a part of your regular fertiliser regime, or as a controlled point supplement to enhance plant vigour. This micronized inoculant can be used to amend any potting soil.
