    Hi !

    Does anyone have experience with container-growing acer palmatum in hydroculture or in an hydroponic system (Heydite, clay pellets, Perlite, vermiculite, Seramis®,…)

    Such a growing media seems to meet all necessary requirements for acer palmatum: it provides good drainage, it holds air and moisture, it is light and loose enough for the fibrous roots,…

    Are there any objections or disadvantages I did not consider ?

    Maybe the protection against freezing is not as good as with ordinary soil ?

    Thank you in advance,
