Types of hydroponics systems
2. Water culture = The plant is actually suspended in baskets right above the nutrient solution in the reservoir usually by floating on top or through holes cut in the lid covering the reservoir the roots hang down from baskets the plants are in and hang down directly into the nutrient solution where they are submerged the roots remain submerged all the time 24/7 the roots don't suffocate because they get the air and oxygen they need from air bubbles rising through the nutrient solution as well as from dissolved oxygen in the water itself.
3. Wick systems = it basically just wicks up nutrient solution from the reservoir to the plants using the process of capillary action.
You can grow year round
You can grow anywhere
Production is limited compared to field conditions
Constant supervision is required
