Our soil-less planters are great for growing anything from tomatoes, chillies and cucumbers right through to growing your own exotic and tropical plants including some of our favourites, bananas and papaya.
The Vivigrow Planter uses a ‘hydroponic’ growing technique and our very own founder of Greenhouse Sensation was one of the pioneers of hydroponics. He developed the Vivigrow so that this technique of growing in water in a soil-less planter could be adapted for home/greenhouse use on a smaller scale. The beauty of the Vivigrow planter is that the planter pumps a constant stream of water & nutrients over your plants’ roots, which encourages your plants to take up more water, nutrients and oxygen compared to if you were growing in soil.
