When you think about the needs of orchid plants you have to look at where and how they grow. While wild environments vary, they are many times seen attached to tree limbs, tree trunks or rocks indicating few needs other than air, water and light. They sip their nutrients based on what may fall their way, or what they choose to grow upon.
Orchids grow worldwide in varying conditions. If you match your condition to their needs you'll be successful!
Many times when one thinks about hydroponics they think of a fully flooded vessel with the plant in it. Our system utilizing expanded clay pellets is different and its easy to control how much or how little water the orchid receives. The EasyGroHydro system Is a completely "passive" system with no need for pumps, motors, air stones or any electricity.
All growing media is replaced with 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, delivering just the amount that the plant needs.
A water gauge even tells 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. The EasyGroHydro LECA pebbles are unique. They vary in size and shape enabling plant roots to latch on and be locked in. A spill does not leave you chasing little balls all over the floor! To see LECA pebbles in our store Click HERE
LECA pebbles provide the ideal mix of oxygen 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?

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.
