Can A Single Sided ZIP System With 12 Tubes Meet The Needs Of Indoor Grown Spinach?

2023-05-22
Spinach is a common green leafy vegetable that is rich in nutrients and has multiple effects. Therefore, eating more spinach can greatly help our physical health. Spinach is rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, and minerals, especially vitamin A and vitamin C, which are the highest among all vegetables. The human body's hematopoietic material iron content is also higher than other vegetables, and it has a special therapeutic effect on gastrointestinal disorders, constipation, gout, skin diseases, various neurological diseases, and poor blood.

Spinach is a vegetable that is very good for our health. Many families choose to grow their own spinach for consumption. Nowadays, hydroponic cultivation can also be used to cultivate spinach, which can also be grown indoors. Hydroponic cultivation technology is an emerging soilless planting technology, which uses water as the nutrient medium for the roots. By placing the roots of plants in water with rich nutrients, it meets the growth and development needs of plants.

The ZIP hydroponic system is most commonly used for planting smaller fast-growing plants, such as different types of lettuce and green leafy vegetables. It is very popular among home hydroponic growers. The planting pipeline of ZIP hydroponic system is usually made of high-quality PVC material, and the plant is fixed with transplant sponge inside. The filter cotton can ensure that the plant has sufficient nutrient solution and the necessary water for growth. Choosing a single sided ZIP system with 12 pipes for family planting can meet the normal vegetable supply.

 Microgreen system

How should we use the ZIP system for hydroponic spinach cultivation?

1. Select seedlings

When hydroponic spinach is grown, strict selection of varieties is required. Our microgreen system can be used for hydroponic seedling cultivation, which is simple and very clean.

2. Preparation before planting

Before planting, clean and disinfect the planting board and seedbed.

3. Colonization

Fix the seedlings in the planting cup through foam, and then place them one by one on the planting holes of the zip system. Add water, nutrient solution, and oxygen to the cultivation box, and use LED plant growth lights to ensure illumination.

The ZIP Hydroponic System

Hydroponics technology has many advantages, such as reducing soil and water resource waste, reducing heavy metal pollution, and making hydroponic crops green and pollution-free, making it particularly suitable for use in cities. Hydroponic spinach also has the same advantages. Spinach belongs to the Chenopodiaceae family and is an annual herbaceous plant. The general planting period is 35 to 50 days. In a hydroponic environment, the growth cycle of spinach may be slightly shortened.

The biggest difference between hydroponic spinach and traditional planting methods is that there is no soil, and instead water is used as the medium. Therefore, the precautions that need to be taken during the planting process are also different, and we need to pay extra attention during the planting process.
