Hydroponic Gardening

Hydroponics question

Zone Surrey | AmanParmar added on September 22, 2016 | Answered

Can you use urea for a hydroponics fertilizer? I was thinking of growing a plant in the urea fertilizer doing hydroponics. Or do I have to mix urea with a hydroponics fertilizer to make it work? I want to see the effect of urea of the growth of a plant. Thanks.
