Maximizing Indoor Hydroponic Results: Harvesting Italian Lettuce using Ebb and Flow Table System
After 30 days or so, our Italian lettuce growing indoors is finally ripe. I have to say that growing Italian lettuce with the Ebb and Flow Table system was a real surprise because the hydroponic results are so good and beautiful.
The Italian lettuce we harvest on our Ebb and Flow Table hydroponic system is large and bright green like a blooming green flower. In addition, you can see that the root system of Italian lettuce is well developed, clean and long, like a beard, which is also a symbol of vegetable health.
About the Ebb and Flow Table System
The Ebb and Flow Table System is a versatile cropping system that allows growers to produce a variety of crops. Ebb and flow hydroponics, also known as flood and drain, utilizes periodic flooding of nutrient-rich water in which the crops are suspended and their roots soaked in beneficial nutrients as they are submerged. , thus absorbing nutrients and water.
The Ebb and Flow Table system can be divided into tidal irrigation mobile Ebb and Flow Table and vertical Ebb and Flow Table System. The tidal irrigation mobile Ebb and Flow Table System is flat and occupies a relatively large area. It can be used for vegetable seedling cultivation, flower cultivation and greenhouse hydroponics.
Types That Can Be Planted
You can use the Ebb and Flow Table System to grow vegetable seedlings, or to grow vegetables, such as lettuce and cabbage, etc. It is a good choice.
If you want to grow vegetables at home, you can choose a small vertical Ebb and Flow Table System. We use such a tide table for planting. During the planting process, you will find that the effect of hydroponics and irrigation is very good.
Of course, you can use tidal irrigation to move the seedbed in the greenhouse, which is very convenient for seedling and flower cultivation.
The most worth mentioning is the Ebb and Flow Table System indoor farm, which is also our ongoing hydroponic project. The project is located in Oman. The equipment of the indoor farm is the Ebb and Flow Table System. You can learn about the hydroponic indoor farm from the video below Scale and details of our tide gauge system.
The container agriculture of the Ebb and Flow Table System is actually the main equipment inside the container is the tidal meter system. Planting crops inside can not be affected by the external climate and various factors, which is especially beneficial for some areas with arid or severe climate.
How the Ebb and Flow Table System Works
The working principle of the Ebb and Flow Table System is to place the cultivation container with the mesh bottom on the irrigation bed, and the nutrient solution is transported from the water tank to the cultivation bed by the water pump.
When irrigating, the cultivation bed will be filled with clean water or nutrient solution, and after a certain period of time , will allow the crop to absorb water through the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot by capillary action. The irrigation water then exits the beds and is either collected for reuse or discharged directly to local sewers.
What do you think of the tide table system? Hope these can help your hydroponics.
