How hydroponics works
A hydroponic system works entirely without soil. The plant's root ball is held in place by a soil plug and only the roots grow into a nutrient solution. This allows the upper part of the roots to absorb oxygen, while the lower part has ideal access to water and nutrients. The nutrient enrichment of the water is achieved by adding fertilizer granules. With this, you save yourself the daily watering and only have to refill new granules into the water about every 2 weeks. Compared to other hydroponic systems, HARRY HERBS does not require any additional technology. Just ensure a bright location and enjoy a rich harvest all year round.
For this kind of cultivation, the best varieties of plants are for example leaf lettuce, spinach or chard.
