Chelators- Synthetic acids that enable trace elements to be absorbed by plants before they precipitate.
Biogenic Decalcification- When CO2 is deficient the plants can suck it right out of the hardening constituents of the carbonate hardness, thus raising pH.
Tuber- Storage organ for some plants (Aponogeton) that supplies nutrients during their dormant periods.
Dormant Periods- Some plants observe it to adjust to native (dry)seasonal fluctuations.
Internode- portion of the stem axis between two nodes.
Demineralization- extraction of dissolved salts in the water byway of ion exchange or RO.
Runner- Lateral offshoot of a plant which creeps horizontally to produce daughter plants.
Cutting- Detached parts of stem plants for replanting.
