Flood and Drain hydroponic system
The PLANT!T® titan – S is a table based flood and drain hydroponic system, also known as Ebb and Flow or Ebb and Flood. This is a popular growing system for the experienced grower.
Flood and drain systems bring fresh water and nutrients to the root zone. The plants sit on the growing table, which sits on top of the tank. During the flood cycle, nutrients are pumped from the tank to the table which brings fresh nutrient solution to the plant’s roots. During the drain cycle, the nutrients are released back into the tank drawing fresh air to the roots. A timer can be used to control the number of times a flood cycle is performed.
Growing media is either spread loose on the table or put into separate free draining pots such as net pots, that are placed on a table. The PLANT!T® titan – S can be used with any growing media - clay, coco, stonewool or soil; however, a free-draining media like clay pebbles can be flooded more frequently than a retentive media like stonewool.
All PLANT!T® titan systems are supplied with innovative, multi-layer table covers, which are white on top and black underneath. These are lightproof, whilst still giving great reflection, reflecting light above and excluding light below. The PLANT!T® table covers are stronger than typical corrugated plastic, but still easy to cut for plant spacing. It is important to monitor EC and pH levels closely with this system in order to gain optimum results. This is easy to do by simply removing the inspection port cover and taking a pH/EC reading.
