Pumping raw air into the nutrient solution, without the need of expensive and often troublesome air stones is not only cost effective, but your plants will also thrive!

Media sold separately: You can use your choice of hydroponic media, such as clay pebbles, #4 perlite, rockwool mini cubes, coco chips, etc. Since this is a hydroponics system, soil should be avoided. Soil may contain dust, fungi, and bacteria, all of which can contaminate a hydroponics system.
NOTE: Setup of the multi-bucket Root Spa system is the same as that of the single-bucket system, with the main difference that the multi-bucket system uses a multi-output air pump, while the single-bucket Root Spa systems use a single dedicated air pump.
