Congratulations! Your interest in Hydroculture has opened
the door to a new and exciting way of successful plant
care and lush growth with beautiful flowers. This will
be done with much less effort on your part and will eliminate
all guessing as to when to water and how much to water
and feed your plants. The results will be very rewarding
with much less plant maintenance.
The System Consists of the Following:
-A plastic outer pot that is water tight and will hold
the nutrient solution.
-A culture pot that is the heart of the hydro system
and fits neatly inside the outer pot.. The culture pot
is of special design. It has a concave bottom so only
the outer portion of the pot makes contact with the outer
pot and the nutrient solution. The culture pot has slits
all around the lower portion of the pot for maximum air
flow through the growing medium and root zone.
-The growing medium is a high fired terra cotta which
provides support, oxygen and capillary action to move
the nutrient evenly throughout the roots. This medium
is called Leca.
-Last, but not least, is the Water Level Indicator. It
fits neatly into the culture pot and will indicate when
to water and how much to water. It also acts as a handle
to remove the culture pot so you can leach the medium
and root zone once a month with tepid running water.
