What are hydro plants?
All Beautanic Lifestyle plants are hydro plants and are grown on water. Hydro plants do not have ordinary roots, but water roots. The plants are therefore less sensitive to too much or too little water. With the built-in water meter you can immediately see when the plant needs water. This makes caring for the plant even easier.
What are the benefits of hydro plants?
Hydro plants last longer than potting soil plants. Water roots are smart roots. When the weather is warmer, the roots allow more water to go to the leaves. As a result, the plant continues to grow for longer. The specially designed hydropot with water meter is made from recycled material and the substrate is 100% a natural product. All Beautanic Lifestyle plants are also super sustainable! Watch the video about the benefits of Beautanic Lifestyle here
What is the difference between hydro plants and potting soil plants?
Hydro plants are grown on water and have water roots. These roots get nutrition from the water. Potting soil plants have ground roots and get their nutrition from the soil. Plants with ground roots should be repotted after a few years. Because Beautanic Lifestyle plants have water roots and get their nutrition from water, you do not have to repot the hydro plant. Therefore give your plant Beautanic Superfood with every watering. This keeps your plant strong and healthy, so you can enjoy the greenery in your home carefree.
