With the Solar Quadgrow Planter, plants grow in Hydrococo, an oxygen rich mix of clay pebbles and coconut shell fibres, rather than compost. The Hydrococo is excellent for root growth but it drains so quickly that it can’t be used in a normal pot or the standard Quadgrow.
The Solar Quadgrow keeps plants perfectly watered depending on the intensity of the sun, allowing plants to make the most of the Hydrococo growing media and providing the roots with plenty of access to oxygen.
With this combination of excellent oxygen access and light-responsive watering your plants will enjoy faster growth, greater resistance to problems associated with humidity and bigger yields.
