Integrated system of sensors, metering pumps, and software enables precise on site assembly and delivery of optimal nutrients.
Continuous monitoring and automatic pH control saves time and protects plants.
System automatically captures key data and enables growers to replicate outstanding crops and optimize yield.
AlulaHydro’s sensors, pumps, software and custom nutrient assembly represent a dramatic improvement over existing products. We provide the same precise control like big European greenhouse systems, but we can do everything at a fraction of the cost.
Because we’re based in Silicon Valley and Denver, our system was designed from day 1 to be fully controlled by a smart phone or tablet.
For most hydroponic farmers, balancing system pH is a time consuming chore that requires careful attention to detail. If the pH isn’t right, then a crop can be ruined. AlulaHydro continually monitors pH and EC and accurately maintains optimal pH balance.
Our software automatically captures key data, and enables growers to replicate top crops and increase yield. We aggregate best practice information from across our entire network, enables growers to accelerate leaning and improve yields is a fast, methodical and consistent manner.

Have questions? We have answers.
We’ve tested our AlulaHydro appliance at our commerical greenhouse in Paso Robles, and it’s worked beautifully. We’re still adding features but the basic performance is outstanding. We’re looking for a small number of tech savvy growers who are interested in optimizing their nutrients and crop yield and are willing to give us product feedback. The Beta will be priced at a discount to our commercial rates, and Beta customers will be able to lock in favorable pricing for up to 3 years.
Yes, absolutely. Our software is already set up with the major hydro products, so if you’re using a popular product from General Hydro, Advanced Nutrients, or Humboldt Nutrients, chances are we already know the nutrient profile and can automatically choose it from our drop down menu.
The total cost will depend on how big your operation is and whether you’re using AlulaHydro nutrients or an existing product. Growers that use our nutrients will typically save from 25-40%. For just our hardware and software, with your own nutrients, the cost to lease the equipment is generally a few hundred dollars per month.
There’s no upper limit on how big of a greenhouse we can support, capacity will depends on the duration and frequency of run times. Our sweet spot for a single AlulaHydro unit is growers with 2,000 – 22,000 square feet of grow space. We can support larger facilities with multiple units.
There’s no minimum – even a small grower needs to feed his plants well. From a practical standpoint we’re targeting commercial growers, and we’d put the lower range at about 2,000 square feet.
We are focused on the Western US, including Colorado, Washington, Oregon and California. We’ll sell nationwide, but at this stage are targeting the states with the most developed cannabis industries.
We provide a recommended nutrient profile for the full lifecycle of the crop, so we will provide recommended setting from seedling to harvest. You are welcome to make your own adjustments based on the insights of your grower or cultivator.
No, definitely not. All of your information is secure and will not be shared with any other growers. Our nutrient recommendations are informed by our years of experience growing cannabis, and over time as we collect aggregated data, we will gain insights into general best practices that will be available to companies in our network. But we will never share any specific information about an individual crop.
No. The hardware is available through an affordable leasing program or you can purchase it outright, whichever you prefer.
Please fill out the information on our Beta form and someone will contact you within 24 hours to discuss your specific needs and see if the AlulaHydro beta program is right for you.
