The Different Types of Hydroponics Systems

There are several different types of hydroponics systems, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. The most common types are Wick, Ebb and Flow, NFT, and Drip.

Wick systems are the simplest and most inexpensive type of hydroponics system. They use a wick to transport water and nutrients from a reservoir to the plant roots. Wick systems are not as efficient as other types of hydroponics systems, but they are very easy to set up and maintain.

Ebb and Flow systems pump water and nutrients from a reservoir to the plants periodically. The plants roots are constantly submerged in oxygen-rich water, which promotes fast growth. Ebb and Flow systems are more expensive than Wick systems, but they are much more efficient.

NFT (Nutrient Film Technique) is a type of hydroponics system that uses a shallow stream of water containing nutrients to feed the plants roots. NFT is very efficient, but it can be difficult to set up and maintain.

Drip systems slowly drip water and nutrients onto the plant roots. Drip systems are very efficient, but they can be expensive to set up and maintain.


How to build your own hydroponics system
