Why Hydroponics?

Because it's a clean and easier way to grow. You'll get better results everytime - with less work!

Herbs get their aroma and flavor from the sun. 

The problem is - plants growing in hot sun demand close attention. Daily watering is a necessity because plants growing in the sun use a lot of water and at the same time the sun is baking the moisture out of the pot. If the plants dryout they become stressed and dehydrated.

Miss a day and your plants suffer (and sometimes die).

It's heartbreaking to loose plants you've been nurturing for weeks just because you missed a day of watering!

Growing Herbs with Hydroponics

Our hydroponic system is simple and easy to use. No pumps, motors or electricty needed.

Our system incorporates a reservoir at the bottom of the pot for storing the nutrient solution that the plant uses as needed.

No more wilting, stressed out plants with our system!

A water gauge tells you when and how much to water. No green thumb required because with our system you'll get the watering right every time!

A decoratve outer pot holds the water while the LECA pebbles pull up nutrient solution to the plant safely and evenly. At the same time, openings between the pebbles promote maximum air circulation around the roots.

Get Rid of That Soil

We replace the soil with unique clay pebbles (called LECA) that are a clean and easy to use.

LECA  stands for Lightweight Expanded Clay Aggregate. They're a man-made sterile ceramic that won't decompose or decay. But more importantly they have unique "capillary properties" that wick the nutrient solution up to the plant from the reservoir at the bottom of the pot. 

You don't need this anymore!

LECA pebbles provide the ideal mix of air and moisture to the roots. No more decomposing dirt, mold, or bacteria.

With LECA pebbles there's never any rot or decay and there's less repotting.

Balanced Nutrition Means Healthy Plants

Complete, balanced nutrition is easy with our system. Just add a few drops of nutrients to the water and your plants will get everything they need - without the soil getting in the way!

Healthy plants have a natural resistance to pests and disease so you'll have fewer problems with insects too!
