City Hydroponics newsletter - 21 Oct 2016

Welcome to this mailing list

With this e-mail you witness the birth of the City Hydroponics newsletter, which will introduce you to the developments at City Hydroponics, new products, upcoming events and tips on hydroponic growing in the city.

It has been an interesting time since the official launch of the first grower back in January this year. Many things have happened, and we have come a long way in developing the business. This includes an expansion from outdoor growing to indoor growing and several new products for outdoor growing as well.

New product launches

City Hydroponics is proud to announce the release of the CH34 balcony growing installation. This super compact system has been designed following market demand, and is now avaialble for pre-order on SparkRaise. Please click here to visit the campaign and to place your order.

This campaign features not only the new CH34 design, but also all existing products of City Hydroponics, now available through this same page at an interesting discount.

Urban farming and the weather

Mother Nature has not been all too nice on us these days! Two typhoons in quick succession, bringing several times the monthly average for October worth of rain in a matter of days.

Rain water and hydroponics are not all too good friends, however a bit of rainwater doesn't matter much and our designs are all made with this in mind. Reservoirs are closed in a way that no water can come in, so only through the growing openings water can enter the system. Here balcony farming shows one of its advantages: balconies are rather sheltered, preventing most of the water to even reach your system.

The typhoons pose a bigger threat to the plants, as empty cups may be blown out and plants may get damaged. Unfortunately there is no way around this. Even removing your plants and taking them indoors may not be a good idea, as you may damage the sensitive roots this way. Luckily plants are remarkably strong and resilient, and while some on my rooftop had been blown over a bit, no serious damage has been done.
