Hydroponics Dwc System (Deep Water Culture)

DWC SYSTEM (Deep Water Culture)



The DWC system (Deep Water Culture) is one of the most easy methods of hydroponic cultivation as it allows plants to grow and suspend with the roots immersed in the nutrient solution.
The solution is super oxygenised from an air pump combined with porous stones. With this method the plants grow much faster because of the high amount of oxygen that the roots receive.

The DWC system requires adequate water + oxygen nourishing solution.
It is advisable to start this type of indoor cultivation with cubes of rock wool. Visit the section ‘GERMINATE IN ROCK WOOL CUBES’. Once the seeds are germinated in cubes of rock wool, put them into the DWC baskets previously filled with clay expander. Fill the DWC system with water and fertilizers that are hydroponic specific up to the level of the solution in contact with the base of baskets.

In this way, the clay will be in contact with the solution that will be absorbed by the plants roots. Soon the plant will develop a large root system that will naturally immerse in the nutrient solution. It will not be necessary to maintain the level of nutrient solution to the same level of the base of the baskets, but results will come with a lower level. It is recommended replacing the nutrient solution approximately once a week and wash the container / tank with hot water to remove any algae, mould and salt deposits. Every time you fill the tank, measure the pH of the solution and ensure that its value is between 5.5 and 6.8. Revise with the pH indicator. Constantly monitor the pH. The well-oxygenated and enlightened environment promotes the development of algae. It is therefore necessary to wrap the tank with black film obscuring all light.

It is also recommended the use of Super liquid enzymes for a complete nutritional diet (Hereinafter the table with dosages).

STRENGTHS

Growth Stage:

  1. Dilute 50ml of CELLMAX HYDRO GROW component X 20 litres of water.
  2. Dilute 50ml of CELLMAX HYDRO GROW component Y 20 litres of water.
  3. Fill the tank with 40 litres of solution previously diluted.
  4. Add 20 ml each Super enzyme replacement of water.
Flowering Phase:
  1. Dilute 50ml of CELLMAX HYDRO BLOOM component X 20 litres water.
  2. Dilute 50ml of CELLMAX HYDRO BLOOM component Y 20 litres water.
  3. Fill the tank with 40 litres of solution previously diluted.
  4. Add 20 ml each Super enzyme replacement of water.

How to eliminate the formation of algae in the system?

The best approach is prevention. To prevent algae, obscure the system with some black film to avoid light entering. If algae does occur, use boiling water and hydrogen peroxide (3 ml every 4 Lt) and scrap with a algae brush.

Hydroponics? A Resource Guide for understanding and using Hydroponics.Hydroponics Grow Shop includes a wide array of gardening supplies and products keyed to making gardening easier, safer, clean and more efficient. Hydroponics, growing plants without soil, is just one method modern growers use to grow more in less space and less time!

Hydroponics is all about enriching water by creating and maintaining a “perfect nutrient solution” that is perfectly balanced for the plant. When the plants get exactly, everything they need, all the time, it will grow as fast, and provide the best flavor and nutritional value, that it possibly can.

Hydroponics is growing plants without soil. Absolutely anything that can be grown in soil can be grown hydroponically. The key is determining the precise, ideal, nutrient solution for the specific plant, and consistently providing it to the roots. Typically, by using a general purpose hydroponic nutrient, plants will outperform soil grown plants in the same environment. Hydroponics Grow Shop is a complete guide to building and operating your own indoor garden. Includes detailed instructions, photos and step-by-step set up.
