Tips for Highlife Hydroculture Plant Care
  • Suitable planters include any type of watertight container except untreated metal. Glass is attractive and also lets you keep an eye on the water level. Or try a double pot that's been designed for hydroculture; the outer pot is a reservoir for water and the inner pot holds the plant and support material.
  • Support material must be LECA. It is a structurally stable, inorganic and rot-proof substrate.
  • Feed plants with special hydroculture fertiliser in water-soluble or slow-release form. Simply place it in the refill water. If plants begin to appear pale of yellow, try supplementing regular food with a foliar fertiliser.
  • Sometimes unused chemicals may crystallize on the pellets and plants, in which case the container needs to be disassembled and the support medium rinsed off.
  • When transferring a plant from soil to water, try to minimize shock. Unpot the plant, carefully tease apart the root ball and wash off the roots under a gentle stream of lukewarm water. Plant in aggregate and enclose the plant in a plastic bag to keep the atmosphere warm and humid for eight to 12 weeks, until the old roots are replaced by new succulent roots.
