Thought you may want to see my old emersed setup.
Yes, like a little greenhouse with a GROWLUX 30 w in every shelve.Phil Edwards said:Trebol-a,
That's a good looking setup you've got going on there. Are you using plastic sheeting to maintain humidity?
Actually, you are quite right about that. Stagnant want will not bring needed nutrients to the plant roots, especially in a hydroponic setup. While in my system the plant roots were always submerged, the water was far from stagnant. This is similar to Tropica's system in that they use a floating hydroponic system for most of their plants.Trebol-a said:Art, I ask you it because observed plants growed better when i regularly water what they stay with the root submersed. i think they love the oxigen in the root and the stagnant water without movement is worse than frequent irrigation.
Well, my system is more poor... a simple hole in the tray, when i water the pots this slowly run at last tray where I gather in a bucket :?Art_Giacosa said:The two growing trays were linked to a large sump. Water circulated through the system at a relatively high flow rate. This kept the water oxygenated and bathed the roots in the nutrient solution.
