As growers in heart and soul, we create unique concepts that bring people and nature closer together.
Especially now that the longing for nature and living green is so present
And we also want to emphasize that longing for nature in the house with plants.
And that is exactly what we love to do!
Growing plants with love and attention and passing on our passion for plants.
The urge for perfection has disappeared, fortunately because plants grow and develop further in the water, making them personal botanical items in your home. Items that belong to you and your interior. Just what you like yourself!
In tropical countries, but also increasingly in non-tropical countries, cuttings are placed in water to allow them to root. But you can also put plants in water because it is just very beautiful! The beauty of the plant is not only in the leaves that grow on the plants, but it is also in the soil. The roots are beautiful to see and they also grow further in the water, so that you are really included in the growth process of the plant. Fascinating!
The plants in water, also called hydroponics, are maintenance-friendly and therefore easy to care for. When you see that the water is almost empty, you can easily apply it again.
Place a number of types of plants in different glasses on the table and you really turn your house into an Urban Jungle. We grow a wide range with different plants that are suitable for Hydroponics (of course all these plants have been tested), so that there is a favorite for everyone!
- A small layer of water in the glass, where only the roots are in, is sufficient.
- Never put the plant itself under water, not even a piece of the stem really just the roots.
- Also leave the top part of the roots free of water so that they can breathe.
- The roots absorb the water as needed, so they regulate it themselves.
- Never leave the plants without water, you can just top it up.
- It is not necessary to give the plants that are on water extra nutrition, the plant does not grow so quickly on water.
- The roots of the Clusia can purify the water very well.
- If baths become a bit more yellow or you want to feed plants anyway, put 1 or 2 drops of nutrition in the water and mix it with the water.
- Change all the water the next day so that the plant has been able to absorb some nutrition, but is not in water with too much nutrition for too long. That can damage the roots. Algae can also get into the water.
- The production of new roots differs per plant type, one variety produces new roots within a week, the other one only after a few weeks.
- There may be some root rot in the beginning, but that is because the plant still has to adapt to the new environment. Eventually the plant will have roots that have adapted to the water, so-called water roots.
- With a Clusia the new roots are often white in color.
- A light location is very important, not in full sun, indirect light is best.
- Plants adapt to the circumstances and can remain like this for years.
- If you use rainwater, you will suffer less from a lime edge on the glass, and the water is also softer for the plant compared to tap water.
- Rinse the roots about every month and put fresh water in the glass. If the water is not dirty, you can also leave it longer.
- If the water becomes cloudy earlier, the glass can be rinsed and cleaned.
- Make sure that the glass remains clean and nice and clear, so that you can enjoy the plants even more.
