Island Hydroculture is the trademark for the most approved way of keeping plants in hydroculture. Island is not an imitation, but the genuine invention of hydroculture systems.

ISLAND stands for pioneering work, with more than 40 years of experience

The many benefits of hydro culture are:

  • Soil Less
  • No Parasite
  • Use Any Decorative Pot
  • Clean & Odourless
  • Excellent Growing Condition
  • Less Watering Needed


The success of Island Hydroculture is based on the following points:


  • Hydroculture

    Leca – lightweight expanded clay aggregate is clean, hygienic and easy to handle. It is being used instead of soil.

  • Hydroculture

    Island Complete Nutrient dissolved in water gives your plants all the nutrients and strength for healthy and luxuriant growth. Thanks to the large water reserve in the containers the plants need less frequent watering.

  • Hydroculture

    The water – level indicator shows exactly when and how much to water. It prevents plants from drying out as well as from damage by over-watering.

  • Hydroculture

    Watering - Pour water over the expanded clay aggregate until the red needle in the water-level indicator reaches the optimum mark (1/2). Only add water when the red needle in the indicator reaches the minimum mark (min), NEVER BEFORE!

Changing Nutrient Solution

The Island complete nutrient should be used in accordance with the instructions on the package. You need to change the exhausted feed solution only every six months. The water-level indicator comes complete with the user-adjustable date display to remind you when you need to change the 6-month slow release fertilizer or the nutrient solution. The numeral at the top reminds you of the month the feed was introduced and the bottom figure reminds you of the date for changeover.
