Frequently Asked Questions

Why Is Water Quality Testing Necessary?


Plants are what they eat. If you’re are solely relying on fish feed or minimal supplementation for your nutrients, there is a good chance that your plants may be visually unhealthy, a result from undetectable nutrient deficiencies.

Deficiencies increase the plants susceptibility to pests and diseases and impact growth, maturation rates, nutrient density, and shelf life.

Performing water quality testing enables preventative practices to take action before its too late.

Is There an App for AquaBuddy?

What if I Want To Use a Custom Formula for My Crop?


Every plant and cultivar is different. We continually redefine optimal nutrient levels by combining the data collected from water quality testing and plant sap analysis into an extensive database. We help develop customized crop fertilization schedules that improve nutrient use efficiency and plant health using this data. If for any reason you have a customized formula for your crop or clients, we can add that to our database and make sure you get credit for the recipe. Contact for more information.

Where Can I Learn More About Plant Nutrition?


To help spread information we have created a section of recommended books and open-sourced library of research papers.

Natural Intelligence is a term that isn’t clearly defined. Still, we use it to describe a system in which the recommendations of the action developed by Humans who created their opinions on what to do based on a lifetime of continual learning, connecting with plants, studying plant nutrition, and making happy accidents.
