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 JUST GROW IN A TIN CAN WITH SOME SOIL?

GROWING INDOORS

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 in the grimmest of winters.
