What is hydroculture?

The essence of hydroculture is that the growing medium is not the soil, but the nutrients are picked up directly from the water. The roots of the plants are surrounded by hydrogranules, the capillaries of which absorb the water and gradually release it to ensure the plant’s water supply.

Healthy, resistant plants

The grain size of the hydrogranule also ensures that roots are ventilated and oxygen is obtained. The plants adapt perfectly to this cultivation method by developing another types of root which is less branched, and consist of long, fine root hair. This allows the plants to maximize the utilization of the nutrients from the water, to obtain the required amount of oxygen, so they are healthier, more resistant and longer-lived.

Aesthetic, clean, does not require much care

The cultivation of hydroculture plants is extremely simple. You can easily control the optimal water level with a simple water level indicator. Nutrients can be provided specifically by adding nutrient solutions developed for hydroculture. The plants need not be transplanted.

Dust and pests free soil

By eliminating soil, nutrient composition and its absorption are not affected by other compounds in soil.The oxygen supply of the roots is not obstructed by the soil that has been squeezed and sometimes humid. By the way, wet soil. On the wet soil, fungus and bacteria are settle down easily. In addition to being not too aesthetic, it’s easy to understand that in a closed office space where there are dozens of people, their proliferation is not too desirable.

So the benefits of hydroculture

  • beautiful and healthy plants
  • hygienic environment
  • simple care
