101 Guide To Semi Hydroponics

Now that you have got your new semi hydroponics plant home, they are easier to maintain and do away with soil completely.

Watering & Fertilizing Your Semi Hydroponic Plants

Most indoor tropicals require watering no more than once a week or two when setup to semi hydroponics, as long as you keep 1 to 2 inches of water inside your pot for clay balls to wick the water up. 

The best way to introduce nutrients into your semi hydroponic setup is into the water you feed them with. You can simply add your liquid nutrients into the reservoir and let the plants wick them up as needed, such as MARPHYL Organic Liquid Fertilizer
