What are the different types of Hydroponic Systems?

Confused?!? Don’t know what type of Hydroponic systems are out there? Here’s a brief description of the different types of systems out there:

1. Aeroponic:
One of the most High Tech systems used because the roots are hanging in the air. Roots must be misted every few minutes.


2. Drip System:
Most commonly used. Nutrients and water are feeding the plant from the top.


3.Ebb & Flow:
Water is temporarily flooding the grow tray then the solution is drained back into the reservoir.


4. N.F.T:
Most commonly used type of systems. The system works by constantly flowing the plant with water, while the plant is submerged in the air.


5. Water Culture:
Very simple type of system. Where the styrofoam holds the plant while floating on the nutrient solution. Most commonly used for leafy lettuce.


6.Wick Systems:
Simplest of all. The nutrient solution is transferred through the wick.

Growing Orchids Hydroponically

December 1, 2011 Leave a comment

Little did I know that original orchids don’t need soil to grow because their naturally grown in treetops and canopies, where there is less soil. Their roots thrive in bark and moss in the wild. That is the usual medium for growing orchids in pots Basically their one of the best candidates for growing hydroponically!

What do we need?
1. plant into hydroponics system
2. add a growing medium
3. mix water and nutirents

Recommended nutirents:
-The Flora Nova Grow is best nutrient to start with in order to have a healthy strong orchid roots. Use FloraNova Grow throughout the structural growth phase and into the first 7-10 days of transition.

-Switch to Flora Nova Bloom for the flowering growth phase.
