Floating Rock Flower
Over the years, numerous products have been invented for
hydroponics and floats to display our plants. Generally the
hydroponic rafts are designed to keep the plants out of water while
encouraging the roots to extend into the body of water below.
Unfortunately, display floats have lacked the ability to ensure
that the plants are not overwatered or to ensure that the
associated potting soil does not become water logged causing root
rot and plant death.
Our Floating Rock Flower Bed units have
solved this problem!
This one piece molded container (Patent # US
7320197) requires no maintenance or assembly. The
Floating Rock Flower Bed is composed of a buoyant
body with recessed planting pockets. The buoyant body has a
water contact portion and an atmospheric contact portion which
allow the plant to keep moist but not wet.
No additional hand watering is necessary because the plant
containers are set on an angle 1/2 inch below the water line,
allowing water to enter and drain, which keeps the soil moist, but
not wet. The air pocket under the planter allows the soil to
breath so root-rot fungus is not a problem for your plants.
You can plant any type of annuals, perennials, vegetables
or water plants that come in a 6" pot. The plant will
self-water, and if they are placed in a pond with fish, will be
self-feeding. The roots will absorb nutrients from the
pond water for growth and will help keep your water
If you place the Floating Rock Flower Bed in a
swimming pool, you will have to add plant fertilizer every month or
so for good growth & flower production.
