The secret of the ViviGrow hydroponic growing kit is that the roots grow in super-aerated water instead of wet soil which often lacks oxygen.

You’ll take the plants out of their seedling pots and place them in the ViviGrow without adding any more soil. The planter’s pump keeps a shallow stream of water and nutrients constantly running over the roots inside the ViviGrow so they are never short of air, water or nutrients. As a result the plants growing in water are stronger and produce 3-4x bigger harvests. The added bonus is you’ll be able to lift the lid of the ViviGrow to see the roots.

Liberating roots from soil in this way makes a big difference to plant health and productivity because wet soil contains very little air. The less air the roots can access the less water and nutrients they can absorb and provide to the rest of the plant. That’s why over-watering is the leading cause of greenhouse plant death and disappointing crops - hydroponic growing overcomes this problem.

In the ViviGrow hydroponic system the planter’s air-inlet keeps the water aerated and the pump keeps a stream of water and nutrients moving over the roots, so you’re guaranteed bumper harvests.

We’d say that’s pretty clever, but our mums told us not to boast!

Because you won’t be using soil you’ll need the plant feed that we include instead. The plant feed includes all of the elements that a plant needs for healthy growth.

You’ll empty and refill the planter reservoir every 3 or 4 weeks, so no nutrient elements are ever too depleted or too concentrated. The feed will last a season and replacements are £14.99 for a two year supply (don’t forget, you will be saving on compost!).

The power consumption of the ViviGrow is very low, it costs a few pennies per day to run and you’ll be more than repaid by the much larger harvests you’ll produce.

Simpson’s Seeds use the ViviGrow and we’re proud that Matt Simpson said: “I get a much larger yield using the ViviGrow than growing in pots. I used to get blossom end rot on my tomatoes, but not anymore and my oldest one is 10 years old and still going strong!”

Not Sure?
Taking the plunge into growing in water instead of soil can be a bit daunting, but it really is easy, if you have any questions why not give us a call on 0845 602 3774 or send us an email info@greenhousesensation.co.uk and we’ll be happy to help.

Choose either the 3 plant space or the 5 plant space planter.

3 Plant Space Vivigrow Planter: L70cm x W39cm x H25cm - reservoir holds 20 litres
5 Plant Space Vivigrow Planter: L115cm x W50cm x H25cm - reservoir holds 45 litres

You can mix plants in the planter, which is a great idea because your plants will produce very large harvests.

We love tomatoes and peppers, so our favourite combination is 1 x Tigerella tangy striped tomato, 1 x Gardener's Delight bite-sized tomato, 1 x Alicante medium full-flavoured tomato, 1 x Marconi sweet pepper, 1 x Sweet Banana sweet pepper.

But you can mix any tall growing plants including courgettes, beans, cucumbers, chillies and of course tomatoes and peppers.

The Vivigrow hydroponic growing kit pumps a constant stream of water and nutrients over your plants’ roots. This encourages the plants to take up more water, nutrients and oxygen than if they were grown in a traditional container, the ground or a raised bed.

The principle behind this planter is that improving uptake of water, nutrients and oxygen improves plant health and size of harvest. It achieves this in the following ways...

1: Plant nutrients are dissolved in water rather than requiring the plant to extract them from soil. 

2: Constant access to water and nutrients is provided so the plants are never lacking anything they need - whatever they don’t use drains back into the reservoir.

3: The roots are left bare so they have excellent access to oxygen 

Why not use soil? Soil is great for holding water until a plant is next fed and for providing nutrients. On the negative side, plants have to work hard to extract nutrients from soil and these nutrients can become depleted or concentrated. Soil also restricts access to oxygen because it becomes compacted when water is added. By dissolving a complete feed in water and pumping this to the roots constantly we are able to ensure the plants can always access what they need without having to restrict the roots in soil.

Behind the science - Greenhouse Sensation & Hydroponics
The Vivigrow is a ‘hydroponic’ growing technique. John Molyneux, our founder and Chairman, was one of the pioneers of hydroponics and hydroponic growing. He was studying roots for a plant biology PhD project in the 1970s when it occurred to him that hydroponics, which was and still is used by commercial growers because it produces much improved yields, could be adapted for home-greenhouse use.

He designed a hydroponic growing kit that would provide all the benefits of hydroponics on a smaller scale, bought a workshop in which to make the planters and the rest, as they say, is history. The first hydroponic planter John designed was what is now the Vivigrow, originally launched in 1976, it is essentially the same now as it was then, great design stands the test of time. 

Our product range has expanded, our planters are now sold all over the world, the factory is bigger and we are a larger team, but the principle of using horticultural expertise to develop products that help anyone to grow better plants is still the same. We still manufacture our planters in Lancashire and John is still our Chairman and continues to lead our product development projects, demand extensive trials and generally keep us all in check.

John’s book ‘A Practical Guide to NFT’ has been reprinted 5 times, the late BBC Gardeners’ World presenter Geoff Hamilton was so impressed by John’s book and NFT planter that he contributed the Introduction to the book and commented: The most comprehensive book yet written on NFT for all. Here is all you need to know about a method of growing that is not only highly productive, but a lot of fun too. I can thoroughly recommend it.”

Long Lasting Quality Review by Tony

I bought one of these back in 2008 when it was called the GS 100+ and can honestly say that it has worked flawlessly every year since. The only minor flaw I've had is the plastic hinge on the reservoir lid parted company, but it's easy enough to just lay it on instead.
During the past 7 years I've had bumper crops of Tomatoes, Peppers, Calabrese and Lettuce and of course has allowed me to go away on holidays, leaving it to look after itself.
I would highly recommend it to everyone. (Posted on 06/01/2016)

It's still less than one month now since panting out in my quadgrow and NFT system. The results to date have been amazing in terms of the plants really establishing a strong vegetative system. I have never seen as thick a stem as on both the NFT and Quadgrow.
Very little difference between the two currently. Also chillies doing well in the Chilligrow system.

I am going to try to send you some pics. I have taken 3/4 pics every week inc the start date on the 7th April. I cant think of a better way of selling than by showing the transformation in less than one month. (Posted on 07/12/2015)

Have bought several items - including their Vivigrow propagator. I have been totally delighted with it. Customer service is second to none , I rang with a query and got through easily to a very helpful person who sorted me out in no time. I love this company, and it is my first choice when I need something for my growing projects. (Posted on 07/12/2015)

I just wanted to let you know how incredible the Vivigrow is. My Carolina Reaper and Trinidad Scorpion chillies have gone absolutely mental this year. 8 foot high with hundreds of large pods. (Posted on 23/09/2014)
My fatalii has gone mental! Lol Review by Luke Beard
Quality
I had one 5 plant vivigrow this year along side trying out several other types of hydro. Next season I plan to run 4 or 6, 5 plant vivigrows. I was sold on the fact they don't need grow media such as clay balls or choir, just a spreader mat, meaning less outlay each season, and easier to maintain. Good yields from this system as well! My fatalii has gone mental! Lol (Posted on 18/09/2014)
