Deep Water Culture

Deep water culture works by submerging the plants roots in nutrient solution and oxygenating the solution with an aquarium air pump. Deep water culture systems are the perfect option for people who grow using primarily organic nutrients as those types of nutrients can clog up in things such as drip emitters found on other types of systems. Deep water culture systems do not use drip or spray emitters and therefore avoid the problem some growers will otherwise face when using organic nutrients.
