Top 5 Indoor Plants That Can Grow in Water | Houseplants in Semi-Hydroponic

My top 5 indoor plants that I am converting to grow in water. Common houseplants that can grow semi-hydroponic.

Semi-hydroponics – or “semi-hydro” – is growing plants without the use of organic soil medium. Typically, LECA (lightweight expandable clay aggregate) is the preferred growing medium for this type of setup. It is rather easy to convert plants to LECA or a semi-hydroponic system, and many plants tolerate the conversion surprisingly well.

I actually started my journey into semi-hydroponics because a few of my house plants were really struggling. Over time, I started researching about LECA and semi-hydro plant care. Finally, I started transitioning a few plants at a time, to see how they react.

  2. I find myself coming back to your channel for all my answers. I have a question. I have an orchid. The ones you buy at the grocery store the real common one. It’s almost dead. Can I repot it in leca?????

  3. Hi! For a clear container you can't make a hole in it, can you just draw a line? Or does the container really needs holes? Thank you.
