Nowadays, many people like to engage in hydroponic cultivation. Hydroponic plants only need to add water to achieve normal growth, which is easier to maintain and more beautiful. So is this hydroponic plant reliable? In fact, the plants we raise can be hydroponic, but simply placing them in water cannot achieve the desired appearance. If you want to achieve flowering and fruiting, you also need professional hydroponic techniques.Hydroponic cultivation technology is only one type of soilless cultivation, and it is currently the most popular soilless cultivation technology.Today we will introduce one of the purest hydroponic techniques.
Some people say that deep water aquaculture is the purest form of hydroponics. The DWC system, also known as the deep flow planting system, suspends a mesh basin containing plants on a deep reservoir rich in oxygen nutrient solution. Their roots are immersed in the reservoir below, and nutrient solution can be transported to the plants without the need for a pump.Many varieties of lettuce and herbs are suitable for growth in the DWC system. In addition,we can also grow tomatoes, carrots, and even larger vegetables and fruits, but it requires more effort to maintain.
The deep liquid flow system is the simplest type of hydroponic planting system, with simple materials and easy construction. Both amateur and commercial growers love this planting system. In the DWC system, the roots of crops are completely submerged in nutrient solution, and adding water-soluble oxygen to the roots can achieve normal crop growth.
What is the composition of DWC system?
DWC refers to a hydroponic technique in which plant roots grow in a deep and flowing nutrient layer. Fill the planting trough with about 5-10 centimeters of nutrient solution, sometimes even deeper, and place the roots of the crop in it.
Nutrient solution: Nutrient solution is indispensable. The soil contains nutrients necessary for normal plant growth. The DWC system belongs to soilless cultivation technology and does not contain nutrients from the soil. Therefore, we need to supplement nutrients with oxygen rich water in order for plants to grow.
Water: Water is the source of life, and any living organism cannot do without it. Plants planted in deep streams are in water.
Oxygen: Due to the high risk of hypoxia and root necrosis caused by root immersion in water, water needs to be fully oxidized to ensure normal plant growth.
What are the advantages of the DWC system?
Low cost, cost saving.
Deep liquid flow system is the simplest hydroponic planting technology, which only needs to provide the most basic water, oxygen, and nutrients for crop growth to achieve crop growth. So this hydroponic system requires relatively simple equipment, which is very suitable for small-scale planting in households. It does not require much cost to own a small vegetable garden, which can greatly save costs and maximize benefits for commercial growers.
No need for complex maintenance methods.
Due to the simple composition of the DWC system, once it starts operating, there is almost no need for maintenance, and only the nutrient solution needs to be adjusted according to the different growth stages of the crop.
From this, it can be seen that the deep liquid flow planting system, a hydroponic planting system, is very simple and pure, and its popularity among many soilless cultivation techniques is not without reason.
