When we look closely at what’s going on at the grass-roots level with the dynamic between hydroponics growers and hydroponics stores, we can see some interesting things going on. We can also easily pick up on some good moves for the future that are going to be very beneficial for both growers and retail store operators in the long term. The great news for everyone is that that these good moves are easy to put into place in the short term.
One thing we are noticing consistently on the storefront of things is a veritable clutter of products that serve to confuse the playing field for the beginner or average grower. So many products doing the same thing…3 bottles of nutrient products to be combined under one system or regimen. Which product or company do you trust? How knowledgeable is your local hydro salesperson? What research do you need to do up front? What’s the most bang for your buck?
Several things are going on beyond just cluttered shelves with too many copy-cat, doppelganger products sporting fancy, sexy packaging labels. One issue is that retail store owners are putting them in the position of tying themselves up with a lot of stock that has low profit margins. Another piece of the pie is in determining on how to emphasize more sales on growing supplies like lighting, growth systems like CO2, heating, air and nutrient circulation systems, growth mediums…etc. The list goes on and one. With limited shelf space for most, in all of the sea of confusion how much of the average grower’s budget is being emphasized towards overbuying or wasting money on trying out the latest fad nutrient when resources could be better utilized on investment into a grower’s permanent equipment and systems infrastructure?
