About Dyna-Gro Foliage-Pro Hydroponic Nutrients
Dyna-Gro Foliage-Pro is a hydroponic nutrient regimen geared towards the vegetative phase of the plant’s growth cycle. Foliage-Pro is high in nitrogen, promoting excellent leaf and stem growth.
It can be used for all plants in the vegetative stage but works especially well when used to grow hydroponic leafy greens like lettuce. Since leafy greens don’t need to go through the flowering or fruiting stages, Foliage-Pro is the only nutrients you will need to grow your leafy greens.
It’s a one-part nutrient solution so there’s is no need to mix with other nutrients.
How To Use Dyna-Gro Foliage-Pro
Since Dyna-Gro Foliage-Pro a 1 part nutrient solution there’s no need for measuring or mixing different nutrients together.
Making your hydroponic nutrient solution is easy. For recirculating hydroponic systems add 2-3 tsp per gallon of water. For non-circulating systems 1 tsp per gallon.
After adding your nutrients you’ll need to measure and adjust the pH of your nutrient solution.
If your growing leafy vegetables this is the only nutrients you will need to use from seedling through to the harvest. If you’re growing something that will flower/fruit, then you will eventually need to switch to Dyna-Gro “Grow” or “Bloom”.
In What Quantities Does Dyna-Gro Foliage-Pro Come In?
Dyna-Gro Foliage-Pro is sold in a variety of quantities:
- 8 ounces
- 1 quart
- 1 gallon
- 15 gallons
- 55 gallons
Foilage Pro is a cheaper initial start-up cost compared to a multi-part hydroponic nutrient solution. With Dyna-Gro you will only need to purchase 1 product and it’s pretty affordable.
While using a one-part nutrient solution takes away your ability to customize your nutrient regimen, you can’t beat the simplicity and minimal investment. I definitely recommend this nutrient regimen, especially for beginners.
Don’t let the ease of use fool you, in my experience, Foliage-Pro works great for vegetative growth especially in leafy greens and herbs. Just check out different varieties of lettuce I grew in my garage flood and drain system using Foliage-Pro hydroponic nutrients.

Thanks for stopping by Dr. Mayura Dange! I’m not sure on importing large amounts of foliage pro, but I know Amazon India ships by the gallon. Here’s the link: https://amzn.to/2C5hoxq

Hi Shirley. You want to start with grow nutrients then move to bloom when you’re ready for flowers to become beans!
