Hydroculture Plants

  • HydroCulture is the practice of growing plants without soil. When compared with self–watering pots there are significant similarities and differences. Both systems ease the task of providing the plants with the appropriate amount of water but the HydroCulture system takes it a step further by replacing the soil with a more sterile medium [expanded clay].

    In short, hydroculture is very convenient in that it takes little effort to care for the plants and that plants grown in HydroCulture have a more positive impact on the environment than those grown in soil.

    When it comes to designing plants, be it for a home, office space, or even for the buildings, Plants Design is known for its biophilic design. We provide plants and trees in biophilic design that creates a nature-friendly environment, giving positive energy around.

    HOW DOES IT WORK?

    Millions of years ago, the only basis for the existence of plants on earth were lava stones and water. This was the beginning of HydroCulture plants – the growth of plants without soil.

    HydroCulture plants today basically copy this invention by mother nature. The small difference is that the roots of the plants are not in lava stones, but rather in a natural clay substrate, the LOCATION. 4 ingredients make these plants simply one-of-a-kind “green air conditioners” for our homes and places of work.

    ADVANTAGES OF HYDROCULTURE

    •  Environmental sustainability – exact water requirement
    •  Cleans air – eliminates harmful indoor pollution
    •  Hygienic- ideal for environments where it is paramount (hospitals, restaurants & other public areas)
    •    Pest free – no bugs, worms or other soil pests
    •  Water level indicator shows exactly when plants need watering
    •  Water every 3 – 4 weeks (even 6 weeks possible)
    •  Fertilize just once every 4 – 6 months
    •  Consequent savings on maintenance and replacement plants
    •  Even nutrient and water supply yields healthier faster-growing plants
    •  Non-allergic
    •  Odour free
