From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Algal nutrient solutions are made up of a mixture of chemical salts and water. Sometimes referred to as "Growth Media", nutrient solutions (along with carbon dioxide and light), provide the materials needed for algae to grow. Nutrient solutions (e.g., Hoagland solution), as opposed to fertilizers, are designed specifically for use in aquatic environments and their composition is much more precise.
