Hydropo-what? Hydroponics. Difficult word, but the execution is a lot easier! With this DIY you show that your plant does not only have to stand firmly with its roots in the ground, but that it also thrives on wet feet. The roots will grow like cabbage and that is what makes us, as plant mum or dad, secretly so happy, isn’t it? Proud! Anyway, enough emotional babble. Let’s get this DIY-party started!
Good preparation is half the battle! Getting started with your hydroponic project? This is what you need:
Two well-filled buckets of lukewarm water.
A container in which all the – no longer necessary – potting soil can disappear.
A nice glass in which your leaf-mattie can flourish.
Ready, set, go!
Now that you are fully prepared to create your own hydroponic wonder, let’s get started! Make it easy on yourself. Don’t sneak buckets of water in this heat. Your green friend really needs it 😉 Ready to go? Then let’s get started!
Step 1: Get your green amigo out of his/her trusted growing pot.
First of all, get your green amigo out of his/her trusted growing pot; cutting the umbilical cord is like nothing else. We understand that this is an emotional moment, but believe us. Your green amigo will spread his wings and grow like never before. Trust the process.
