Seed starting for hydroponics and aquaponics can be a costly event. Plugs really start to add up on the bottom line, and can sometimes present some challenges when getting certified organic. Hydroshale Seed Starter was designed with those two things in mind. What we developed was a media that wicks and stores both moisture and nutrients. On top of that: its reusable forever! When used with grow grips, you can eliminate any normal plug waste as everything is reused again and again. And since it holds water deep in its pores you water less, if at all, during the seedling process. Just add the DIY autowater we use for an easy seed starting experience.
