Ever noticed that professional plant stylists rarely plant their selections in soil? Instead they use HydroCare – a method of growing plants in a water-based nutrient solution in a medium of expanded clay pellets, eliminating the need for soil altogether. 

Our HydroCare plants are an excellent choice for businesses looking to create a lasting impression. They are known for their durability, longevity, and resilience to environmental stress, while also being less prone to diseases and pests.

HydroCare offers several benefits over soil-based plants that make it the go-to choice for creating professional plant looks. Firstly, it allows for better control over the plant's environment. In soil-based plants, the environment is dependent on the quality of the soil, which is difficult to determine without specialist soil science understanding. However, with HydroCare, there is no soil to study, and the nutrient solution can easily be precisely adjusted to meet the plant's specific needs, resulting in healthier and more robust growth.

Soil-based plants make it challenging to understand what is happening below the surface with the soil's structure, composition, and water levels.
Over or under watering is the most common cause of plant deaths, especially when people are away for extended periods or overwater them. In contrast, hydroculture pots have an indicator at the side that tells you when the plant needs watering, making it incredibly easy and straightforward for anyone to maintain.

By being able to control the plant's nutrients and water levels, HydroCare makes plant care a doddle, leading to healthier plants that last longer, resulting in less waste and better value for money.
  1. Reduced maintenance: Our HydroCare plants require less maintenance compared to traditional soil-grown plants, as they do not require as much pruning or repotting.
  2. Enhanced growth: HydroCare plants grow faster and larger than their soil-grown counterparts, due to the increased access to oxygen, nutrients, and water. This means you can enjoy a fuller, healthier plant in less time.
  3. Reduced pest problems: HydroCare plants are less susceptible to pest problems, as the lack of soil eliminates many of the pests that thrive in soil.
  4. Longer lifespan: HydroCare plants tend to have longer lifespans than soil-grown plants, as the lack of soil-borne diseases and pests reduces the risk of plant death.
  5. Aesthetic benefits: HydroCare plants often have a sleek and modern look, which can enhance the aesthetic value of your home or office.

OK, so it's clear why HydroCare is the choice of professional plant stylists, but what's the catch? It must be prohibitively expensive and or incredibly complicated to assemble and maintain right? No and No...

If you're interested in trying HydroCare you don't need qualifications or certifications to get started. It's super easy.
Order the plant, pot, and accessories, and assemble them to create stunning plant looks. The maintenance then becomes occasionally checking a dial to see if the plant needs watering, and adding the water and feed as directed. Incredibly simple!
