Hydroponics

By Julia Faucett

3 types of hydroponic system

Drip System:

Method that saves water and fertilizer by allowing water to drip slowly to the roots of many different plants, either onto the soil surface or directly onto the root zone, through a network of valves, pipes, tubing, and emitters.

Ebb & Flow:

are two phases of the tide or any similar movement of water. The is the Ebb outgoing phase, when the tide drains away from the shore; and the flow is the incoming phase when water rises again.

N.F.T. :

is a hydroponic technique wherein a very shallow stream of water containing all the dissolved nutrients required for plant growth is re-circulated past the bare roots of plants in a watertight gully, also known as channels.
