Hydroponics is the growing of plants using substrates while delivering water, nutrients and oxygen.
Hydroponic grow systems are a sustainable method of growing with water with savings between 70% and 90% depending on the type of plant and your grow set-up. Crops grown in hydroponic environments include microgreens, leafy greens and medicinal cannabis. Rockwool is one of the most common substrate options on the market but others include perlite, vermiculite, coir, coco, clay pellets or even peat moss, sawdust, sand and gravel.
Water right every time
If you are manually watering it can be easy to overwater or underwater your plants.
To be accurate you would need to stick to a good schedule to make sure there are no inconsistencies. Make sure you water correctly every time with an automated hydroponic system.
Registering your run-off
A fully automated hydroponic control system can monitor and measure your run-off.
The data gathered can then be used to ensure compliance with local legislation if required and give you an accurate measurement of expenditure.
Depending on the size, type and structure of your grow room you can control: nutrient, pH, EC, irrigation, and run-off.
Your automated hydroponic system should alert you when there’s a problem and allow you to access and manage everything remotely.
Why should you invest in a fully automated hydroponic system?
With hydroponics any interruption in watering or feeding can ruin the plants fast. Where the root zone is exposed (NFT) plants can dry out quickly, leading to crop wastage. An automated hydroponic monitoring system ensures things run accurately.
