The Highlife Hydroculture System Explained

In Highlife Hydroculture, soil is replaced with LECA (Light Expanded Clay Aggregate). LECA is a natural product and is perfect for allergy sufferers as it is clean and hygienic, so bacteria, fungus and soil diseases have little chance of existing. With hydroculture you don't have to live without plants any longer.

The System Consists of the Following:

-An outer pot that is water tight and will hold the nutrient solution. The outer pots are available in ceramic, plastic, glass, stone or terracotta.

-A culture pot that is the heart of the hydro system and fits neatly inside the outer pot. The culture pot is of special design. It has a concave bottom so only the outer portion of the pot makes contact with the outer pot and the nutrient solution. The culture pot has slits all around the lower portion of the pot for maximum air flow through the growing medium and root zone.

-The growing medium is a high fired clay called LECA (Light Expanded Clay Aggregate) which provides support, oxygen and capillary action to move the nutrient evenly throughout the roots. LECA provides the necessary support for the plant and at the same time absorb the correct amount of water and oxygen. This optimal ratio of water and oxygen ensures healthy, beautiful plants.

-Last, but not least, is the water level indicator. It fits neatly into the culture pot and will indicate when to water and how much to water. It also acts as a handle to remove the culture pot so you can leach the medium and root zone once a month with tepid running water.
