Botanium is a compact, easy and effortless way of growing. Its a hydroponic pot, which means it grows plants like chilies, herbs and tomatoes without soil. It waters the plants automatically. The result? Faster growth and no need to worry about over or under watering. Leave it for a month and get back to a healthy plant.
All you need to do is to fill the water tank every now and then, and add some nutrients (included)
What you can grow
Grow herbs like basil, oregano or mint. Or chili, tomatoes or strawberries. Botanium works especially well with thirsty plants that normally would require very frequent watering. Grow guides for different plants are available on our blog.
The most common way to kill a plant is probably forgetting about watering and then compensating this by overwatering. Everyone knows that plants need water, but how much and how often?
Botanium automated system waters every 3rd hour, and since the growing medium holds moisture as well as air, the plant can't get overwatered. Just fill the water tank when the water level gets low, and you can leave it alone.
Botanium works fine on a bright windowsill as it is, but If you live in a cold and dark country, you need extra light during the winter. But you don’t need a special “growing light”, simply put your plant under a standard CFL, fluorescent lamp or LED. As long as it’s not an old incandescent light bulb, the plants will grow, even in the grimmest of winters.
The water lasts for weeks
As water is pumped up, the excess water drains through the bottom and is recollected in the water tank to be reused later. So instead of evaporating, more water is being used by the plants.
The water lasts for several weeks, so you can go away from home and return to a healthy plant.
