Hydroponic Growing Media & Containers

Choose the Growing Medium needed depending on your container type.

The foundation of the Hydroponic grow op is the materials your plants are rooted in. The choices for soil free growing media are as varied as the crops, and picking the right one will involve some research.

Many plants are started in a soilless potting mix, which can consist of components like coconut fiber, rockwool, clay pellets, etc. All these soil free grow media are designed to provide the necessary aeration, drainage and water holding properties required for growing plants in pots or containers.

A soilless medium requires no treatment prior to planting and generally speaking, is lightweight, porous and holds substantially more water than soil.

Hydrotek Hydroponics can advise, evaluate and equip your operation with any combination of container and soil free growing media needed to start a crop and an installation.
