Hydroponics 101.

There are many different types of Hydroponic systems,each offering unique approaches to growing plants without soil.

Each system has its advantages and considerations in terms ofcomplexity, resource requirements, and suitability for different plant types.

Deep Water Culture.

Deep Water Culture (DWC) is a hydroponic method where plants are suspended in nutrient-rich, aerated water.

Roots are submerged, allowing for optimal oxygen and nutrient uptake, leading to faster growth and healthier plants.

Flood and Drain.

Flood and Drain is a hydroponic method where grow trays periodically flood with nutrient solution and then drain.

This cycle ensures roots receive nutrients and oxygen, promoting healthy growth and preventing root rot.


Aeroponics is a hydroponic method where plant roots hang in the air and are misted with a nutrient-rich solution.

This ensures the roots get plenty of oxygen and nutrients, promoting fast and healthy growth.


The Nutrient Film Technique (NFT) involves a continuous flow of nutrient solution over the roots of plants, which are housed in a sloped channel.

The thin film of nutrients allows the roots to absorb the necessary nutrients while being exposed to oxygen, promoting healthy and vigorous growth.

Kratky Method.

The Kratky Method is a non-circulating hydroponic system that doesn't require pumps or electricity.

Plants are placed in a container with a nutrient solution, and as the plants consume the nutrients and water,the level of the solution decreases, exposing more roots to air.
