A great step into Deep Water Culture, the 2 plant Oxypot XL grow systems produce phenomenal results in a small space and use very little media - just a handful of clay pebbles.
Plants are placed in the Oxypots mesh basket and the roots are suspended in the growing chamber where an air pump constantly oxygenates the solution.
The roots have constant access to nutrient solution in this oxygen rich environment which leads to fast growth. The Oxypots are very popular because they're incredibly simple and the results are fantastic.
There’s no risk of providing too little or too much nutrient solution because the roots take-up what they need when they need it.
The Oxypot XL has a reversible lid for lower plant suspension during the veg stage

Hits & Tips
Pump - leave the pump on 24/7 – the plant’s roots need constant access to nutrient solution and oxygen.
Transplanting - young plants started in 1” rockwool cubes, root riots or jiffy’s can be transplanted into an Oxypot, they must be root bound before they go into the system
Plants under lights will take up water at a greater rate than they take up nutrient. Over time the EC of the solution will rise. Top up the pot with half strength nutrient solution, check EC and add extra nutrient if required. Then adjust pH level and perform a complete solution change every 2-3 weeks, depending plant size, water quality and hardness.
