Need help with plants? ♥

We are here for you and we will be happy to share our knowledge and experience with you.

We attach a short instruction on how to deal with your new household member with each order. It is very important to stick to its tips and enjoy your new plant for a long time!

On this subpage you will find a detailed description of the stages of dealing with the seedling during its acclimatization until transplanting, depending on the substrate in which it came to you and the scope of development of the root system.


1. I received a plant in moss:

Pre-rooted: 

First of all, give the plant a warm and bright place. A stand with diffused light will work best. Such conditions may occur at a distance of approx. 1 m from the windows with direct sunlight, i.e. southern and western windows, and most of the year on the eastern and northern window sills. A lamp for plant illumination, if you have one, will also work very well.

To ensure the right conditions for faster and proper root growth, place the seedling in a terrarium, window or ventilated container with transparent walls. This will keep the moss moisture constant while allowing the sun to shine. Remember that the moss should not be too wet or dry. You can sprinkle it every few days with standing water.

Continue the whole process until the plant is rooting more strongly, check it once every few days, gently removing the plant from the ground.

You have to judge the moment of transplanting the plant into the target substrate by yourself based on the volume of the root ball to make sure that it is stable enough to survive in the new environment. 

Transplant the plant to the target hydroponic substrate, i.e. PON substrate, expanded clay, seramis or, for example, a mixture with soil and other ingredients dedicated to specific species.

It is very important to thoroughly clean the roots of moss before transplanting into the target substrate. Leaving too much of it on the roots can lead to rotting of the roots in the new environment!

 

Fully Rooted:

During the acclimation period, which should last 7 to 14 days, do the same as for the pre-rooted plant. After this period, you can safely transplant the seedling into your favorite substrate.

2. I got the plant in the substrate
or other medium intended for hydroponic cultivation:

Pre-rooted:

First of all, provide the plant with a cover without a drain, preferably with a water level indicator, or if you do not have one, place the plant in our production pot into another vessel or from which no water will drain. When the water evaporates, add it to the level of 2-3 cm from the bottom of the pan or casing.

Another way is to transplant the plant into a transparent cup, for example, so that you can observe the state of hydration. In this situation, use the substrate in which the plant came to you as a substrate.

How to water a hydroponic substrate?

The easiest way to water this type of substrate is to use pots with an insert containing a water level indicator. However, this is not an essential element. All you need to do is observe the color of the substrate, which as the water evaporates, turns lighter and becomes light, which means that it needs watering. The damp substrate is heavy and dark gray in color.

Water from the top in the same way as for traditional soil. The frequency depends on several factors, including the conditions you provide to the plant as well as the specific variety. In our experience, this should not be more than 1-2 times a week.


3. I received the plant in a mixture with soil and other ingredients:

In the ground, we send plants that have a fully developed root system. 

Therefore, after the acclimatization period, which should last from 7 to 14 days, you can transplant the plant to the substrate of your choice.

Remember that if you choose a standard soil mixture, create a drainage layer at the bottom of the pot, a few centimeters thick (approx. 2 cm), which ensures air permeability and drainage of excess water. We recommend using expanded clay for this, which is resistant to the influence of moisture and fungi and can be used many times.

In addition, we recommend using pots with a drain and a stand instead of covers. This will avoid overflowing the plant due to the fact that when using the casing, we have a small, visual control of the level of water not used by the plant.

However, we encourage you to grow plants in water culture, i.e. the aforementioned hydroponics.

 

Why is it worth growing in hydroponics?

Growing in hydroponics may seem a little tricky, but that's just the appearance. In fact, it is very simple and has numerous advantages.

This method of irrigating plants is very efficient and much easier than growing plants in soil mixtures. Plants grown in this medium grow and mature much faster than plants grown in soil. They are healthy, strong and more resistant to pests and diseases. Thanks to the sterility of the substrate, we also avoid the development of fungi and harmful bacteria.

This is a very good substrate for people who have a tendency to overflow plants. It provides the roots with a large amount of oxygen due to its specificity, and thanks to the indicator or observation of the color of the substrate, you will quickly and easily notice when the plant needs watering. Importantly, shedding plants in hydroponics is impossible.

Virtually all types of plants can be planted in this type of cultivation. because it provides everything they need for life, from hydration, oxygen access to the roots and the absorption of minerals necessary for the plant to develop properly.

Many of you also ask about the issue of fertilization in hydroponics. From our experience and practice, we fertilize plants in hydroponics almost all year round, and more intensively during the growth period.

The dosage depends on the information on the product packaging. If you use a PON substrate for hydroponic cultivation, you may not fertilize your plants for about 3 months after the first use, because it contains a dose of minerals necessary for such a period.
