6 hours of daily sunshine is recommended for ideal plant growth. If the sun only shines on one side of your Hydrogarden, rotate the reservior 180 degrees once a week. Remember to always add water and nutrients together and never let the water level go below the top of the pump. Test your water's pH prior to adding nutrients and test again within 24 hours to ensure proper balance. The ideal pH range is between 5.5 and 6.5. Adjust as needed. Use only Colossal Rock Perlite provided and be sure your plant roots are completely covered. The use of dirt, small sized Perlite or any other growing medium will clog the PVC pipe and void the warranty.
The hydroponic gardening method was first mentioned in 1627 in a book called Sylva Sylvarum by Francis Bacon. Prior to that, it is believed that the famous hanging Gardens of Babylon and the Floating Gardens of China were the earliest forms of hydroponics.
The use of hydroponic gardening eliminates soil and uses only water enriched with nutrients to grow plants. By eliminating soil, the nutrients get pumped directly into the plants and reduce excess water usage. Hydroponic gardening also eliminates root competition, treating plants to a constant flow of nutrients. This allows them to focus their energy on faster growth, bigger yields and more flavorful produce.

Creating your Hydrogarden
1. Place reservoir in a sunny location on level ground or flooring near a power source.
2. Fill the reservoir tub 1/2 -3/4 full of water and use the pH tester provided in the Deluxe Kit to test its pH. Adjust as needed.
3. Add 1 tsp. of Dyna-Gro Foliage Pro 9-3-6 nutrients per gallon of water when initially filling or replenishing the reservoir.
4. Place the pump into the center of the reservoir, feed the electric cord through the lid access cap and set both aside outside of the tub.
5. Firmly secure the PVC pipe into the pump hole and stand the PVC pipe up vertically with the cap on top.
6. Temporarily replace the PVC cap with tape while you slide the reservoir lid down the PVC pipe. Pull the electric cord through the lid access cap and snap the lid onto the reservoir.
7. Slide your first planter pot down the center of the PVC pipe and rest it securely on the reservoir lid.
8. Fill your planter pot 3/4 full of Growstone GS-1.
9. Gently rinse most of the dirt from your plant roots before planting them in your planter’s pot. Plant one “bare-root” plant in each corner of the pot, leaning them slightly outward.
10. Add 1-2 cups of Growstone GS-1 as needed to fill your pot and cover all plant roots.
11. Repeat steps 7-10 for all 5 planter pots until all 5 pots are securely stacked above one another. Remove the tape from the top of the PVC pipe and replace with the PVC cap.
12. Plug the electric cord into your electrical outlet and you are ready to grow!
