Deep Water Culture Hydroponic Gardening Systems

Although hydroponic experts have argued over the best methods of growing plants indoors, deep water culture hydroponics have proven to be one of the premier techniques when it comes to planting and growing. With deep water hydroponics, growers traditionally will use plastic buckets with the plant in a contained net suspended above the nutrient solution. The roots are then plunged into the solution while an air pump continually oxygenates the environment to ensure that the plant receives a healthy supply of both nutrients and oxygen.

Deep water culture hydroponics, also called bubble hydroponics, is basically a highly oxygenated bubbling system that is using the nutrient solution in the reservoir. Using a hydroponic bubbling system will allow you to provide nutrients to the plant immediately, so the plant will experience stronger growth during its life cycle.
