What is undercurrent hydroponics?

Under Current, or UC for short, is Current Culture’s line of deep water culture hydroponic systems. Designed to deliver heavy yields, high potency, and increased efficiency, UC systems are some of the best DWC systems available.

Is deep water culture easy?

As true Hydroponics in its purest form, Deep Water Culture is definitely among the easiest yet most effective type of Hydroponic systems. Even though the concept is simple, there are many ways to use and build the deep water culture using different materials.

What is Rwdc hydroponics?

FYI, RWDC = Recirculating Deep Water Culture – the hydroponic growing method used by Under Current systems.

What is deep water culture growing?

Deep Water Culture (DWC) is a style of hydroponic growing that does not use a medium. In a DWC setup, the plants are suspended in special pots or nets, with their roots stretching down, immersed into a pool of aerated, nutrient-rich water.

What is undercurrent water?

Undercurrents are currents of water that flow under the surface of a large water body; they are like a small stream or river within the larger water body itself.

What is needed for deep water culture?

DIY Hydroponic Deep Water Culture All you need is a 3 ½ gallon (13 l.) bucket, 10-inch (25 cm.) net pot, an air pump, air tubing, an air stone, some rockwool, and some expanding clay growing medium or the growing media of your choice.

How many types of hydroponics are there?

There are seven types of hydroponic systems: the Kratky method, deep water culture (DWC), wick system, ebb and flow (or flood and drain), nutrient film technique (NFT if you like acronyms), drip system and aeroponics.

Which is better RDWC or DWC?

Much like it’s cousin, the bubble bucket, the recirculating deep water culture system (RDWC, better known as DWC) quickly grows plants in a near ideal environment. The main difference is that the system supports multiple sites and allows you to grow a much larger crop of the same plant with far easier maintenance.

How deep should a deep water culture be?

To answer our question, Deep Water Culture System, alias DWC is a method of growing plants where the roots are suspended in a nutrient-rich, oxygenated solution. It is referred to as ‘deep’ since the water should be at least 10-inches deep.

How does a deep water culture system work?

The Deep Water Culture System In the reservoir, an airstone that’s connected to an air pump is placed in the water. This helps to balance the oxygen supply in the water. All the plants that are meant to be grown in the deep water culture (DWC) farm are placed in net pots and are made to float in the water tank.

How does the Under current culture system work?

The Under Current is cornerstone of the CCH2O Proven Production Approach when used with Cultured Solutions® Nutrients and the CCH2O Nutrient Dosing System. Sub-Current Culture (SCC) technology utilizes negative water pressure to recirculate highly oxygenated nutrient solution through the plant’s root zone.
