Types of Hydroponic Systems

AEROPONIC
AEROPONIC

Aeroponics is considered a form of hydroponics that involves constantly misting water and nutrient solution onto plant roots. To achieve this, growers can choose between various types of systems. There are two main types of aeroponic systems: high pressure aeroponics and low pressure aeroponics.

Basil
Basil

Hydroponic Systems for Basil and Cilantro. Both basil and cilantro can be grown in a range of hydroponic systems, the most common being nutrient film technique, DFT (deep flow technique), aeroponics and shallow substrate systems using coco coir or rockwool mediums.

Cabbage
Cabbage

Cabbage, a member of the brassica family, can also be grown hydroponically and can fetch you great harvest all year-round without much of trouble. You just have to select a right location with good light and then choose and set up a hydroponic system that suits your budget.

Deep Water Culture (DWC)
Deep Water Culture (DWC)

Deep Water Culture (DWC) Hydroponic Systems What is Deep Water Culture? Deep Water Culture, otherwise known as Direct Water Culture or DWC, is a simple yet effective hydroponics system that works by suspending the plants’ roots directly into a highly oxygenated nutrient solution.

Drip Systems

Hydroponic System Definition - In horticulture, hydroponics is a form of agriculture where plants are not grown in soil, but rather in trays or grow...

DRIP SYSTEMS RECOVERY / NON-RECOVERY
DRIP SYSTEMS RECOVERY / NON-RECOVERY

Drip hydroponic systems can be set up in either a recovery or a non-drip recovery method. With non-recovery methods, nutrient water that runs over the plant’s roots does not go back into a reservoir; it’s only used once. Recovery systems do just the opposite and reuse the nutrient solution after it’s dripped over the roots.

EBB & FLOW - (FLOOD AND DRAIN)

And relations with those countries are at a low ebb, with China shadowed by threats of a US trade war and Russia on notice for a whole range of disputes, from Ukraine to Syria and the whole collusion-and-electoral-interference problem.

Ebb and Flow (Flood and Drain)
Ebb and Flow (Flood and Drain)

Like any flood and drain (ebb and flow) system, the overflow tube height sets the water height during the flooding cycle, and can be adjusted as needed. The plants are grown in regular plastic pots or baskets, and placed in the flooding tray like regular potted plants.

Green Beans
Green Beans

Any varieties of beans that need trellising, stakes or other support in the garden need the same help in a hydroponic environment. The type of support depends on the specific environment. In a greenhouse or outside, it might be easy to use stakes or a trellis; but if the floor is concrete or made of wood, it’s likely to be easier to use strings to support the plants.

Lettuce
Lettuce

The Lettuce Raft method is the most straightforward method of hydroponics out there. It is simple and inexpensive to set up, easy to maintain and leaves plenty of room for experimentation. It is simple and inexpensive to set up, easy to maintain and leaves plenty of room for experimentation.

Mint
Mint

In my opinion, the ‘80/20 Rule’ applies here. Of the growing skills required to grow a good commercial intensive horticultural crop, about 80% relate to horticultural skills and only about 20% to hydroponic skills. Put another way: if you grow mint, you are a mint grower using a hydroponic technique, rather than a hydroponic grower growing mint.

Nutrient Film Technique (NFT)
Nutrient Film Technique (NFT)

Nutrient Film Technique, or NFT, is a popular and versatile hydroponics system. It is similar to Ebb and Flow in that the system uses a pump to deliver fertilized water to the grow tray and a drain pipe to recycle the unused nutrient solution.

Potatoes
Potatoes

Hydroponics gives you the ability to grow vegetables, including potatoes, on a small condo balcony or in a small yard greenhouse. It also allows you to grow them year-round in the warmth of your home, as long as the plants are exposed to sunlight through your windows most of the day.

Strawberries
Strawberries

Growing Hydroponic Strawberries: How to grow strawberries in hydroponic system. Strawberries! Nothing can define exoticness better than strawberries. Why do we love growing strawberries so much? Is it the taste or the flavor or the price it enjoys in the market.. Sure there are lots of other fruits that are more expensive than a strawberry but strawberry still has the crown(pun intended).

Tomatoes
Tomatoes

I have hydroponic modules all over my apartment inside and out. They’re growing tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, herbs, spices and most of what I need. Produce prices keep going up and I’m enjoying my systems more and more. I love hydroponics because I don’t have to deal with messy soil and I don’t use as much water over time.

WATER CULTURE
WATER CULTURE

Water culture systems by definition are non-recirculating, but can be modified to be circulating systems as well. The hydroponic system sometimes referred to as the Kratky method is simply a water culture system without the air pump, as well as part NFT system.

Growing flowers lends itself beautifully to hydroponic gardening as they can be grown in larger numbers, and can be grown year-round. Most flowers will do well in a hydroponic garden, and when seedlings are big enough, flowers can be cut or transplanted.
