HOW IT WORKS

Hydroponics is simply growing without soil. Roots need water, nutrients and oxygen, all of which can be provided in a more efficient way than in soil.   

Botanium's porous growing medium absorbs a lot of water, while also providing an aerated environment for the roots. The benefit of this is not only quicker growth and more control, but it is also a simpler approach to growing.   

The included nutrients are easily added with a pipette and the amount you need to add depends on the plants you are growing.

WHY NOT GROW IN A POT WITH SOIL?

+ No soil borne pests

+ Sterile growing medium 

+ Automatic watering 

+ Faster growth 

+ No mess 

+ Clear water level indication 

+ Cannot be overwatered 

+ Effective water usage 

+ Can contain more vitamins

- Can contain pests, like fungus gnats 

- Needs watering when dry, but not too dry 

- Requires (helpful) neighbors when traveling 

- Slower growth 

- Messy and dirty 

- It's easy to forget watering 

- Overwatering is common 

- Most water evaporates 

- Results depend on soil quality

URBAN GARDENING WITHOUT SUNLIGHT 

Did you know that you can grow inside all-year-round, even if you live in a cold and dark country? 

Even here in Sweden it's easy, and you don't need a special "growing light". Just put your plant under a standard CFL, fluorescent lamp or LED. 

As long as it's not an old incandescent light bulb, the plants will grow, even during the grimmest of winters.
