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 often should I change water in DWC?

Therefore, every 1-2 weeks (generally the longest you should wait before changing your nutrient solution is three weeks), you should remove your plants from the reservoir to replace and refresh the hydroponic nutrient solution, then place the plants back in the reservoir.

How often do you change water in DWC?

How many GPH do you need for RDWC?

Many experienced hydroponic gardeners recommend running between 800 and 1200 GPH through RDWC systems. That said, for each individual container in an RDWC system, a minimum of approximately 80 GPH of water is required for healthy and thriving plants.

How long do you flush DWC?

Deep water culture (DWC) and other hydroponics growers should flush the shortest time, only 1–2 days, because you’re immediately cutting the plants off from nutrients.

What kind of growing method is Kratky?

The Kratky method is a passive hydroponic technique for growing plants suspended above a reservoir of nutrient-rich water.

How often do you change water in a RDWC system?

It is recommended to perform a full nutrient change out every 7-14 days.

What size water pump do I need for RDWC?

Do you refill Kratky?

Can You Refill Your Kratky Reservoir? Yes, if you notice that your plant’s roots aren’t touching the water, there is no harm in refilling your Kratky reservoir.

Do you need nutrients for Kratky method?

As opposed to the procedure used in recirculating hydroponic systems, the Kratky method does not require additional supplementation of water and nutrients during the growing period.

What nutrients do you need for Kratky?

Kratky method fertilizer is a mixture of Masterblend fertilizer, calcium nitrate, and magnesium sulfate in a 4-18-38 ratio. The amount must be carefully calculated to suit the size of the container and/or level of water. Additional supplies you may want to add include a pH control kit and a ppm meter.

How do you maintain RDWC?

Maintain vegetative humidity levels between 60-70% (daytime) / 45-60% (nighttime) and flowering humidity levels between 40-60% (daytime) / 30-40% (nighttime).
