These pots have several applications: in nurseries or indoor gardens for mother plants and collectibles, in the house for decorative or culinary plants of all sizes, or in the kitchen for aromatic herbs to use fresh while cooking.
They are used in research laboratories and universities and even in schools where studying plants growing hydroponically fills children and adults with wonder.
You can place them everywhere, in a sitting room, an office, a veranda or a greenhouse.
Technically completely similar to the AquaFarm, the WaterFarm differs only in size and price. Plants are grown within a chamber filled with clay pebbles. The growing chamber is suspended above a reservoir filled with nutrient-enriched water. An air pump drives the nutrient solution up through the “pumping column” to the drip-ring, where it drips down through the clay pebbles. This infuses the nutrient with oxygen and constantly bathes the roots, stimulating the plant to grow like you have never seen before.
It is crucial, that the pump is ALWAYS working - and the irrigation is operating - while the illumination is on. When the lights go out, irrigation can have a break, but doesn't have to.
The piece of hose on the side of the water-tank pot shows the level of the nutrient solution inside the pot. The surface should always be on the same level as the bottom of the growing chamber.
Often copied but never equalled, these 2 systems provide top performance while being also reliable, easy to use and inexpensive.
Will grow 1 to 6 plants per pot, depending on the size of your plants.
The provided pump is an ACO 2201 with 1.8 Watt and an output of 78l/h.
