Designed specifically for Deep Water Culture, TetraBase is a clean and reusable media that delivers the support large plants require.

Start increasing the cleanliness of your grow environments while saving costs long-term today!

Not only does TetraBase facilitate superior nutrient uptake, but it also eliminates the risk of nutrient leaching as it is non-porous.

The durability of TetraBase Grow Media is unparalleled. Engineered to resist compaction, it maintains its structural integrity over time, allowing for multiple growing cycles without degradation. This means you can rely on TetraBase to provide consistent support to your plants, whether you’re a hobbyist or a seasoned professional.

The perfect solution for your hydroponic gardening needs. Engineered with precision and innovation, this advanced grow media is designed to optimize plant growth and maximize your yields like never before.

Unlike Clay balls, TetraBase will not discolor your roots, water, or deteriorate and drop into your plumbing system which would wreak havoc on your pump and chiller. TetraBase is CLEAN and even if it does manage to get loose into the system, it floats on the surface so it will not be an issue for your pump/plumbing system.

Not all net pots are created equal and can vary in volume but generally, a 5.5″ or 6″ net pot holds about 1 Liter of media.
