Botanium Planter takes over all care in the growing process, watering in between is not necessary.
The Botanium Hydroponics Self Watering Planter does not use soil. Instead, your plants grow in a special growing pellet (included). This has many advantages. It grows faster, no insects to attack your plant, and best of all, the pellets are reusable.
In the bottom part of the Botanium you put water and nutrient solution. When you connect the included USB cable, water is pumped from this tank/reservoir to feed your seeds/plants. The water is filtered through the pellets, some is used by the plant, and the rest goes back to the tank. This means the Botanium can keep watering for weeks at a time before it needs refilling.
With a fixed 3-hour watering schedule, the Botanium starts watering as soon as it has power. No need to worry about over- or under-watering. The pump is whisper quiet, and you will only hear a trickle of water pumping from the top section. This makes for great placement options in any room.
The Botanium is a self-sustaining hydroponic system with a closed-loop nutrient cycle. Hydroponics is an old proven technique for producing fast-growing, high-yielding plants and vegetables. Grow everything from seed to harvest. The Botanium planter is also great for orchids!
Hydroponics systems are often bulky, and therefore not suitable for the home. Botanium Hydroponics Planters have a minimalist Scandinavian design that fits into any room.
Because the pump in the Botanium planter is controlled by a timer, the pump is only active for a few minutes a day. As a result, the Botanium planter uses very little power.
Herbs & lettuce:
It is also possible to grow other vegetables and herbs, even small plants are a possibility. The Botanium planter cannot be used with soil.
