Billionaire Beef: Podcast 155 - NPK Hydroponics live

We've got beef with the billionaires

A particular group of billionaires, who sack 194 people because their books don't balance. 194 people who helped to build this industry and have families or people that rely on them.

I want the UK industry to start sticking together and become bigger than the billionaires!

Have a great day hydro fam.

See you next week,

Stephen and Thomas


The ‘Quest’ for the perfect environment: Podcast 148 - NPK Hydroponics live

For podcast 148 we were joined by Colman of Quest de-humidifiers...

A pretty boring podcast if we were just talking about de-humidifiers, so you're lucky that Colman really knows his stuff on all aspects of environment and just happens to sell one of the best de-humidifiers in the hydroponics industry.

Listen up, because a good environment is literally THE NUMBER 1 WAY TO IMPROVE YIELDS AND REDUCE PROBLEMS!

Did we shout that loud enough ;)

Enjoy and have a great week

Mammoth P Part III (Cannabis around the world): Podcast 146 - NPK Hydroponics live

We're back with Colin from Mammoth P but this time, we'll be talking about the Cannabis industry as Colin see's it. 

Colin, one of the owners of Growcentia (The makers of Mammoth P) is quite literally one of the most hardworking people you'll meet. Over the last 6 months, since he was last in the NPK podcast booth, he's been all over the globe and toured extensively around the US. So who better to ask about the current state of Cannabis around the world and how different countries handle it.

We really enjoyed recording this podcast, so enjoy and have a great day wherever you're listening in the world.
