What is Hydroponic System of Planting
What is Hydroponic System of Planting/ 6 Main Types of Hydroponic and How It works/ Lecture:1
What is Hydroponic System:
Hydroponics is an increasingly popular method of growing plants that uses a nutrient-rich solution with a water base, which means that soil isn’t used at all in a hydroponics system. Instead, the roots of the plants are supported by such substances as peat moss, clay pellets, perlite, and rockwool. When you’re looking to create or use a hydroponic system to grow plants, there are hundreds of variations of hydroponic systems available for you to use. However, there are only six types of hydroponic systems under which all variations are situated.
1. Wick System:
The wick system is easily the simplest type of hydroponic system that you can use to grow plants, which means that it can be used by practically anyone. The wick system is notable for not using aerators, pumps, or electricity. In fact, it’s the only hydroponic system that doesn’t require the use of electricity. With the majority of wick systems, the plants are placed directly within an absorbent substance like perlite or vermiculite. Nylon wicks are positioned around the plants before being sent straight down into the nutrient solution.
2. Water Culture:
A water culture system is another highly simplistic type of hydroponic system that places the roots of the plant directly into the nutrient solution.
The best aspect of the water culture system is that the plant roots are placed directly into the nutrient system, which means that the nutrients can be easily absorbed by the plants. Because of the direct access to nutrients and oxygen, plants that are grown with the water culture method will grow very quickly.
3. Ebb and Flow (Flood and Drain):
The ebb and flow system is another popular hydroponic system that’s mainly used among home gardeners. With this type of system, the plants are positioned in a spacious grow bed that’s packed with a grow medium like rockwool or perlite. Once the plants are carefully planted, the grow bed will be flooded with a nutrient-rich solution until the water reaches a couple inches below the top layer of the grow medium, which ensures that the solution doesn’t overflow.
