if you go to this link below, there is a picture of an aglaonema in a passive hydroponic pot. i was wondering if these pots have a specific name, or brand name? it looks like a net pot set into a DWC reservoir, but without aeration.

the site is italian if that makes a difference. i think i remember reading a while ago about these types of pots being used for house plants in europe in the early 70's, but i can't remember for sure.



ps i'll cross post this on hydroponics forum.

Here is a link that might be useful: Giuseppe Mazza photo of Aglaonema nitidum

Hi Nancy,

I have no idea what the pot is, but why not write Mr. Gieseppe Mazza or whomever answers emails?

Can't hurt, right?

When I clicked on the site it was in English. If you're getting Italian, there's a tab for English.

Good luck, Toni
