Deep Water Culture (DWC) is a hydroponic method of growing where a plant's roots are suspended in a bath of water, air bubbles and nutrients.
Benefits of Deep Water Culture growing:
- Low maintenance
- Faster growing time compared to soil grown plants
- No soil = no bugs
There are three important pieces of this method that Grobo uses;
1) Oxygen: The air stone and air pump in the Grobo keep the water well oxygenated so the plant doesn't drown.
2) Water: Your Grobo requires weekly draining and re-filling to ensure the water in the DWC tank stays fresh.
3) Nutrients: Grobo's automatic dosing ensures that your plant has all the micro and macro nutrients to grow and thrive.
