Planting Hydroponic Plants in Soil with No Shock

Prepare your hydroponic plants by removing the nutrient solution and reducing the water in the system to harden off the plant roots.


Prepare your pot. Choose a pot no more than 2 inches larger across the root mass. Use a large pot for emergency relocation.


Pick and prepare your growing medium. Mix equal amounts of perlite, vermiculite, and coco coir.


Relocate your plant by carefully removing it from the hydroponic system. Do not tease out the roots to prevent transplant shock.


Prune the leaves back to help the plant roots recover. New shoots will develop eventually.
