The agriculture industry is #awesome and important since we all #lovetoeat For growing in the state of #oklahoma it's usually Zone 7 but for a specific place like #oklahomacity, its going to  #zone7a.

Get specifics even when you buy any plants this coming spring or antime of the year. Our urban farm / homestead has a April 15 plant date but our research and plant choices have to come out of #plantzone7a .

This week our water well is our december work making the clean aquifier water well runs super smooth. Our regional weather will have "ice rain" coming eventually. Protect and invest your aquifer water. Its not free water. Just signicant difference of water quality for growing vegetation.

Plant Grow Lights and Indoor Gardening

If you love gardening and would like to grow all winter long, indoor gardening and hydroponics is a great way to do that.
*grow lights
*You can start your vegetable and fruit tree cutting and seeds indoors at room temperature. Since you are growing indoors your stable temperature is already set without battling outdoor temperatures. Whether you want to manually water your plants using liquid organic fertilizer or use hydroponics, it's easier to manage. 
*grow lights hydroponics
*We have in stock with heated germination mats. Organic soil is a great way to start out that has organic materials for furthering growth. Plant grow lights often use LED lights or T5 lighting. The various fixtures can hang down from your mini greenhouse or from the ceiling. There are various liquid hydroponic fertilizers for sale. Some are nitrogen rich, phosphorous rich or potassium rich. Nitrogen will help the leaves grow robust, the phosphorus will help with the blooming of flowers and the potassium grows a very healthy root system. Ventilation with greenhouse fans are important cause you don'y want stale air. When growing indoors ventilation and air flow is needed. 
*hydroponic fertilizer
*When you choose hydroponic fertilizer, use the correct blend for your own uses. When you see numbers like 5-3-2 that is the nutrient ratio. The 5 number is the nitrogen and this increases plant leaf growth. The 3 is the phosphorus meaning flowering blooming and bright flowers. The 2 number is potassium which really helped the plant root grow and is overall health to your plants. For our growing, we find the potassium to be the most important. The root system is the deciding factor in plant kingdom growth. For for plant grow lights, hydroponics, plant seeds, fertilizer, gardening supplies and more let us help you at: GrowOKC.com
