Solstice Garden Supply came to us as the parent company and sole distributor of a quartet of plant nutrient products, created by Hydroponic Research. Hydroponic Research knew their customers were relying on their products to grow strong, healthy plants, which is why each and every one of their products is formulated using straight-forward ingredients sourced from organic materials, with very low traces of metals.

After building a reputation for high-quality plant nutrient products during their five years on the market, Solstice Supply and Hydroponic Research found themselves poised for massive growth and a need to streamline their marketing and sales process. They came to us with the need to produce both traditional and digital marketing collateral in order to bring their brand and suite of products to a wider audience.


The VEG+BLOOM project included a number of our services, such as website design, web development, e-commerce, copywriting, marketing collateral design, trade show booth design, custom illustration, and apparel design.

Every effort was made to ensure the new website was user friendly, informative, and highly functional. The end result was a site that not only provided a wealth of educational resources and scientific data in an easy to follow interface, but also gave their customers an interactive product locator, downloadable feeding charts, and an intuitive online store.

The crown jewel of the new website, however, was the custom built, interactive nutrient calculator. With this robust and multi-function tool, users are able to easily determine which combination and quantities of Hydroponic Research’s products they should be using for an optimal yield, based on their current systems and water quality.


Since the 1990s, Christopher LaRose has been perfecting a simple, optimal formula designed to produce ideal results in hydroponic crops at a minimal cost. The formula evolved in both typical hydroponic environments and more complex, controlled circumstances – the result is a broad-spectrum formula that allows hydroponic crops to thrive under an array of conditions. The cumulation of this research is VEG+BLOOM, the most advanced, economical, and outstanding hydroponic nutrient formula available. Overwhelmed by the results, he decided to share the formula with interested growers in 2010 and established Hydroponic Research, a formulator of hydroponic nutrients focused on rapidly maturing, oil-producing plants that generate a maximum yield at a minimum cost.
