Came across a product I've never heard of with its company ad on one of my web surfing pages. The Active Aqua Round Air Stone and a picture of something I tried to imagine using or even what it was supposed to do. At first I thought it had something to do with outdoor fish ponds which we have several of here on the campus. Kind of like filters.
I looked it up and although I was sort of close, it has nothing to do with ponds. Instead the stone is designed to add air to hydroponic growing systems. The micropore design energizes the growing solution as it aerates and circulates nutrients. Air stones will extend the life of your nutrient solution, help keep roots healthy, and promote exceptional growth.
Ok. We don't have a hydroponic system for growing plants here but we've long wanted one. We have the perfect place for indoor, hydroponic growth of vegetables and herbs, but we've been told "don't even think about it." Or words to that effect.
So if you come across this product you'll know what it is.
