Adds natural beauty to any area. It is well documented that hydroponic farming produces a higher yield p/square meter than traditional agricultural techniques. Thus, the hydroponic farming movement is on a strong upwards growth trend which is forecast to proceed well into the future. New technology is now available for farmers to utilize hydroponic techniques in smaller spaces using vertical growing systems. The advantages of vertical hydroponic gardening are profound and include.
Significant increase in yield/square meter. Reduction in ground pests and disease. Ease of harvest and maintenance. The old way NFT Systems. There are various hydroponic farming methods with different advantages & disadvantages depending on the crop type and other factors.By far the most prevalent method for growing fast crops such as lettuce, chinese vegetables and leafy greens is NFT (Nutrient Film Technique) whereby a steady stream of water is re-circulated past the bare plant roots in a water tight channel. This method is responsible for most of todays lettuce production in Western countries. While NFT is highly effective, it relies on a reservoir, water pump and re-circulation network to return the water back through the channels on a continual basis. The maintenance & monitoring of this type of system is significant as a pump failure could result in an entire crop death within 4-8 hours. There is waste product which must be flushed regularly, and the yield is limited by the size of the horizontal field area. The new way Drain to Waste. With drain to waste, there is no need for water re-circulation, costly pumps, reservoirs and related infrastructure. You simply hook up the system to the water mains and utilize a simple valve system which controls water to various zones on a timed basis. This combined with a fertilizer injector allows you to inject nutrient at very exact quantities which is passed through the system to each tower and fed from above. You then let gravity do the rest. Watering in short bursts of 2-3 minutes every 4-8 hours throughout the day ensures each tower contains optimal hydration. As you have full control over the zones and duration, you can time each feed so that only a drop or 2 of waste is simply absorbed into the ground. This is the future of hydroponic gardening.
These hydroponic growing systems utilize an inert medium typically consisting of 70% coco coir 30% perlite. This medium is an excellent wick which means you only need to supply water to one part of the tower. The medium will wick the water to all parts of the tower effectively. This method ensures almost no hydration variances thereby limiting plant stress so you can optimize each plants yield. Advantages of Drain to Waste.
No waste product or flushing of system required. Plant constantly receives fresh nutrient instead of reconstituted/depleted nutrient. Easier to maintain a consistent PH level. Nutrient water is less prone to pathogen attack.
Significantly less logistical and maintenance issues compared to re-circulation. Ideal for smaller plants or large plants with large fluid retention rates. Effective insulation of roots from extreme heat (using coco/perlite medium). Strong buffers against any prolonged moisture loss.Almost no electricity usage as there is no water pump required. Highly cost effective with reusable medium. Never over or under water your plants again. Coco Coir with Hydroponic Nutrient is like rocket fuel for your plants! Many growers struggle with growing plants in pots. Potted plants are very susceptible to hydration issues. Simply put, most growers either under or over-water their plants.
Thirsty plants wilt and are quite easy to spot. Unfortunately, many growers tend to over-water to compensate. This causes root rot which kills your plants just as quickly. Solving the hydration issue is the key to successful pot plants. Even the highest quality potting mixes will get water logged you're over-watering.
Remember, plant roots love & need oxygen! Too much water, means not enough oxygen. Finding a potting mix with just the right level of absorption to retain water without becoming water logged is the key to successfully growing plants in pots. The best medium, is one that has sufficient oxygen content when fully saturated.With coco, you simply cannot over-water your plants. Coco has up to 22% air porosity when fully saturated. Coco is also highly absorbent and acts like a wick, soaking up water like a sponge. Coco is inert, meaning it's free from nutrient, pathogens and disease.
With coco you simply add nutrient to the water in exact quantities. With hydroponic nutrient you're providing exactly the right amount of nutrient for your plants to thrive.This is the simplest form of hydroponics and works incredibly well. Coco comes in dried 5KG blocks which expand 7 times when water is added. Give Coco a try, you will be very happy you did!
