There are hundreds of Hydroponics Techniques System - to make hydroponics plants of course you must have special knowledge and know the various things that are needed in planting hydroponically so that the plant can grow and produce as desired.
Important aspects of growing hydroponics plants:
Hydroponic plants depend on water, water becomes an important aspect of the quality of hydroponic crop growth.
Enough light is needed to grow well.
Oxygen is an important aspect of hydroponic planting. Low oxygen levels can lead to decreased permeability of cell membranes so that cell walls are difficult to penetrate. This will result in a crop shortage of water and wither.
In order to grow well and obtain nutrients, nutrient solutions should be given regularly.
Things to consider in Media selection
- Can sustain the plant properly
- Has sufficient pore size
- Does not clog the system
- No effect to Nutrition solution
- Easy to get if possible in Production itself.
The advantages of planting plants with hydroponics systems are:
- Become a solution for those who want to grow crops but minimal land
- Use Fertilizer is more efficient
- Use less water.
- Fewer required labor.
- Cleaner work environment
- Can be planted in locations that can not be planted, poor nutrients, berbatuan, indoors (with additional lights
- Plant production of a wider union
- The selling price of Organic Hydroponic Vegetables is more expensive
- No need to transplant and can relieve stress.
Hydroponics "Drip Irrigation" System.
This method utilizes pebbles, rice husk charcoal, sand, and other materials that have been sterilized as planting medium.
Hydroponics System "Wick system".
In this method, the plant is planted in a medium which at its base is placed a macro and micro nutrient solution, so that the plant roots touch and absorb the nutrient-filled solution.
Hydroponics System "Nutrient film tehnique".
In this method, plants in long and narrow ditok planted materials can be made of plastic or metal anti-rust. The ditch is flooded with nutrient-filled water, so around the roots of the crop comes a thin film (film) that is the plant's food.
