An excellent introduction to hydroponics
The AquaFarm is the first hydroponic “home unit”, created more than 25 years ago by Lawrence Brooke, in California. Since 1975, thousands of these remarkable units have been sold worldwide, bringing satisfaction to their owners and growing thousands of beautiful, healthy plants.
These pots have several applications: in nurseries or indoor gardens for mother plants and collectibles, in the house for decorative or culinary plants of all sizes, or in the kitchen for aromatic herbs to use fresh while cooking.
They are used in research laboratories and universities and even in schools where studying plants growing hydroponically fills children and adults with wonder
You can place them everywhere, in a sitting room, an office, a veranda or a greenhouse.
Technically similar to the AquaFarm, the WaterFarm differs only in size and price. Plants are grown within a chamber filled with clay pebbles. The growing chamber is suspended above a reservoir filled with nutrient-enriched water. An air pump drives the nutrient solution up through the “pumping column”, to the drip-ring, where it then drips down through clay pebbles. This infuses the nutrient with oxygen and constantly bathes the roots, stimulating the plant to grow like you have never seen before.
Often copied but never equalled, these 2 systems provide top performance while being also reliable, easy to use and inexpensive.
Will grow 1 to 6 plants per pot, depending on the size of your plants.
The FishPlant Family Unit is a great way to get started with aquaponics; large enough to provide a couple, or small family with plenty of fresh salad, and stocking up to 3.5kg of fish. Yet small enough to fit into a small garden, greenhouse or even indoors. Compact and easy
The FishPlant Production Unit is the largest in the range. The height of the system makes it very accessible and easy-to-use. It is large enough to supply a large family with a constant supply of salad and herbs and regular fresh fish. This system is ideal for a small hotel
