For over 30 years, American Hydroponics has been providing people with cutting edge hydroponic gardening and farming equipment. They were one of the first companies to bring NFT farming equipment to the U.S. They are most known for their enhancers, Dark Energy and Super Nova, that employ the use of amino acids and pack quite a punch and can shave up to two weeks off a typical growing cycle. They now specialize in commercial hydroponic farming supplies, equipment and consulting. In fact, BetterGrow Hydro's own commercial hydroponic lettuce farm was created back in 1996 with the help of American Hydroponics' owner, Michael Christian, and the farm continues to flourish today. If you're considering a hydroponic lettuce farm both American Hydroponics and BetterGrow Hydro is available for everything from planning and consulting to equipment design, sales and installation.
Dark Energy is a select blend of L-amino acids, specifically chosen for each of their beneficial effects on plant growth. L-amino acids improve the absorption rate of your favorite fertilizers by chelating essential nutrients and making them more available to your plants. It enhances the bloom stage of any plant by stimulating the natural production of ethylene, a flowering and ripening hormone. Trials have shown that an increase in ethylene concentration results in a reduced time to harvest and synchronized, even ripening. You will notice an increase in overall biomass and harvest quality through continued use of Dark Energy. Learn More
