Plants naturally find it difficult to fully access the nutrients provided to them when grown in solid media such as coco coir, soil, sunshine mix, or Rockwool because of localized pH shifts directly adjacent to the roots.
To combat this, Hydrawave uses amphiphilic polymer-based Open Gate Technology to open the plant’s trans-membrane proteins. These compounds are both water and lipid soluble, meaning they can access both water and fat, which is vital in assisting the mobility and uptake of nutrient elements in the roots.
Once fully opened, these proteins can freely accept nutrient ions regardless of their electrical charge and, to some extent, localized pH conditions. The end result is a significant increase in nutrient uptake by the plant, driving real growth, health, and vitality.
