Our hydroponic system is perfect for growing orchids! Beginner or expert, you'll get fantastic results with our system.
You'll be amazed at how easy growing orchids in hydroponics can be!
Hydroponics means growing without soil. There are many types of hydroponic systems on the market today. Most are complicated to use and expensive to buy. Pumps, motors, electricity, etc..
Our hydroponic system is simple, easy to use, and doesn't cost an arm and a leg to buy.
All growing media is replaced with our special clay pebbles called LECA (Lightweight Expanded Clay Aggregate). These man made clay pebbles have capillary properties that wick the nutrient solution up to the plants. No pumps, motors, or electricity needed.
Our hydroponic systems include a water gauge telling you when (and how much) to water. The components to our system are:
LECA pebbles are a man made sterile ceramic pebble that "wicks" the nutrient solution up to the plant gently and evenly. Our LECA pebbles are not round, like some on the market. They are irregular in shape and size locking into place and helping to anchor roots.
Your orchids will benefit in many ways with LECA:
LECA pebbles provide the ideal mix of air and moisture to the roots. Both you and your orchids will like the clean, healthy environment without decomposing bark, mold, or bacteria.
With LECA pebbles there's no rot or decay so there's less repotting .....
No more guessing about watering! Is the plant too wet ... or too dry? What holds water - what doesn't? Our system has a Water Gauge that tells you when and how much to water. What could be easier?
Water Gauge reading empty
Water Gauge reading 1/2 full
Air vents in the inner (culture) pot are designed to promote maximum air circulation at the roots. The water gauge locks into the pot from the bottom and can even be used as a handle for removing the inner pot from the outer pot.
It's as easy as 1-2-3!
As you go about your busy life your orchids are getting exatcly what they need for optimum growth.
1. Pour water (or nutrient solution) over the pebbles. Water passes through the pebbles to the reservoir at the bottom. Water gauge tells you how much is in the reservoir.
2. The capillary properties of the LECA pebbles "wick" the moisture up to the plant's roots gently and evenly.
3. As moisture moves up to the roots, air circulates through the open spaces in the culture pot and between the pebbles, giving the roots with an even mix of air and water.
What nutrients are your plants actually getting? Complete, balanced nutrition is easy with our system. No more guessing. Just add a few drops of nutrients to the water and your plants will get everything they need for healthy growth and vibrant blooms.
No worry about salt buildup either. Simply flush the roots at the sink every couple of months and all the impurities wash away!
With our system your orchids will practically take care of themselves. Imagine your orchids in a single media that's clean, easy to use, and won't breakdown.
Spend less time on your plants and get better results!
Healthy plants are easy with correct watering and balanced nutrition. Fewer insect problems- and other plant ailments too!
Beginner or expert, your orchids will benefit from our hydroponic system!
