Hydroponics is a subset of hydroculture and is a method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions, in water, without soil. Terrestrial plants may be grown with their roots in the mineral solution only, or in an inert medium, such as perlite or gravel. The nutrients in hydroponics can be from fish waste, normal nutrients, or duck manure.”
So basically, we’re looking to grow plants without actually having to plant them in the ground. That means we can grow them indoors if we choose!
Simply put, hydroponics growing system is the practice of growing plants using only water, nutrients, and a growing medium. The word hydroponics comes from the roots “hydro”, meaning water, and “ponos”, meaning labor, this method of gardening does not use soil.
Instead of soil, hydroponic system gardeners use different types of growing media, like coconut coir, vermiculite, perlite, and more.
Just like KMERLIFE Hydroponics Growing System.
Designed with no soil technology to cultivate the plants; avoid any soil contamination, no heavy metal contamination, no pesticide residue, no antibiotics, non-OMG, and non-nitrite. Equipped with 12 planting seed pods made of Biochar Mud, non-toxic and no soil contamination ensure natural and green planting for you, safer and healthier come pare to other normal sponges. (Seeds and Nutrient solution not included).
In a nutshell, the idea behind hydroponic system is to remove as many barriers as possible between a plant’s roots and the water, oxygen, and nutrients it needs to grow (and thrive).
This can be done in many different ways, which is why we’ll look at the different types of systems you can use to grow hydroponically — but first, let’s understand the benefits and downsides of growing without soil.
Water culture systems are considered the simplest kind of active hydroponic setup, with the plants directly exposed to a nutrient solution. They use a floating foam block to hold the plants with their roots suspended in the liquid nutrients. As in a wick system, air stones and pumps may be used to keep oxygen circulating in the solution. Water-loving plants with a fast growth rate, such as lettuce, do well in this kind of system, but it is appropriate for only a few other species.
The benefits in using KMERLIFE Hydroponics Growing System?
The most blatant benefit of diy hydroponic system is the massively increased growth rate of most plants. It’s not uncommon for a plant to grow at least 20% faster than soil gardening. On top of that, plants will typically yield at least 25% more than their soil counterparts.
Unlike many other hydroponic vegetables systems, KMERLIFE deep water culture systems can be made cheaply and easily at home, with a quick run to your pet store and local nursery to pick up the air pump and nutrients.
Constructed with an automatic control panel automatically to control ON/OFF of the LED grow light, the lights on KMERLIFE Hydroponics Growing System will automatically turn off after 18 hours of constant use, and will turn back on after 6 hours of rest, setting the perfect light time to help your plants photosynthesis, creating a cycle of 24 hours.
Up to 12 plants grown at once, allow you to grow fresh herbs, vegetables, salad greens, flowers, and more with the indoor gardening system, which can grow plants 5 times faster than growing in soil. You can enjoy any hydroponics plants you want in any season. Ideal for indoor use, either on the kitchen counter, window, or living room.
Types of Indoor Hydroponic Systems
There are six main types of hydroponic systems to choose from:
- Wick Systems
- Deep Water Culture (DWC)
- Nutrient Film Technique (NFT).
- Ebb and Flow (Flood and Drain)
- Drip Systems
Plants are grown in channels that have a nutrient solution pumping through them and constantly running along the bottom of the channel. When the solution reaches the end of the channel, it drops back into a main reservoir and is sent back to the beginning of the system again. This makes it a recirculating system, just like deep water culture.
Unlike deep water culture, your plants roots are not completely submerged in a NFT system — hence the “film” part of the system’s name.
Plants are placed in these channels using net pots and growing medium and can be replaced or harvested on a one-by-one basis.
