Indoor Hydro Plants

HGTC Services offers a wide variety of high-quality foliage and blooming Hydro Culture plants which we importing from Holland. These plants are acclimated especially for your indoor environment.

Hydro culture is a method of growing plants without the use of soil. Plants are grown in an absorbent aggregate and nutrients. Some of the advantages of houseplants grown in hydro culture are the water reservoir makes it easy to see when the plant requires water, the aggregate is open therefore allowing air to circulate around the roots, and the reservoir coupled with using absorbent aggregate helps create humidity around the plant. This method of hydro culture is sometimes referred to as 'passive hydroponics.

Advantages of Hydro culture plants

 Cleaner than soil and easier to clean up spills,
 less risk of staining furniture,
 Non-allergic
 Grow media never needs to be replaced
 Good root aeration because pebbles do not compact.
 Water level indicator tells when plants need watering.
 there is less danger of over- or under watering,
 You do not have to transplant plants as often.
 Plants are not subject to soil-borne pests, larvae and diseases, Hypoallergenic (no soil = no mold and mildew).
 Allergy sufferers can have plants too.
 Pest free - no centipedes, sow bugs, worms or other soil pests,
 you do not have to put fungicides, insecticides, weed killers

Clay pebbles

Clay pebbles are the primary growing medium used in hydroculture systems. These expanded clay pellets take the place of soil. They are highly porous which means they are great for growing plants. Clay pebbles are effective at retaining moisture and nutrients, are fully inert, free from soil-borne pests and diseases, provide plenty of oxygenation at the root zone, and give your plants a sturdy support structure to grow and thrive. It is worth noting that although clay pebbles are the most common growing media used in hydroculture; other inert mediums such as perlite can also be used

Culture pots

Culture pots are almost identical to any other plant pot out there on the market, but they have one key difference. A culture pot includes a recess for a water level indicator which will show you exactly how much water your plants are sitting in and giving you a clear indication of when your plants need watering with a nutrient solution

Pot liners

Pot liners are often used in hydroculture and other forms of gardening to make easy work of moving plants between containers. They also make porous pots used for display purposes in container gardening waterproof and enourage the development of a smaller, more manageable root zone in plants placed in large outer containers.

Water level indicator

Water level indicators are a simple way to measure exactly how much water your plants are sitting in. They are tailored for use with specific culture pots and usually come with indicators showing the ‘minimum’, ‘maximum’, and ‘optimum’ water levels. Water level indicators take the guess work out of knowing when to feed your plants

Fertilizer

Unlike growing plants in soil, the growing medium used in hydroculture is inert and lacking any plant nutrition. Therefore, plant fertilization products have been developed specifically for hydroculture and hydroponic applications. There are various fertilizers developed for use during different stages of the growth cycle and they all contain the essential and beneficial elements and nutrients plants need for healthy, vigorous growth.
