Traditional pot plants can create mess; however using the hydroponic method will save you the headache of cleaning up spilt soil

The Way of the Future

  • Hydroponics is a method of growing plants in water that replaces soil with light weight clay pebbles
  • The clay pebbles anchor the plant in place and act like a wick to draw water up the root system of the plant
  • You can easily start your own hydroponic pot plant system at home, all you need to do is take your favourite pot plant and wash all the soil from the root structure, than plant into a special culture pot that has slits up the side to allow the water to infiltrate the clay pebbles
  • For more information on how to have your own hydroponic pot plants at home pop into your local hydroponic shop and prepare to be amazed!
