Hydroponics is basically growing plants in water, without soil. Learn from this video about the basics of hydroponics. As an introduction to different types of hydroponic systems, first you will learn all about Deep Water Culture. We cover the design, build, and operation of a DWC hydroponic system.

The Ebb & Flow hydroponic system is known for its reliability of operation, versatility, and low initial investment cost. Another hydroponic system in this topic is Drip Irrigation, also known as trickle irrigation, micro irrigation, or localized irrigation. It is an irrigation method that saves water and fertilizer by allowing water to drip slowly to the roots of the plants.

Nutrient Film Technique or NFT is a hydroponic system that involves a very shallow stream of water containing all the dissolved nutrients required for plant growth continuously flowing past the bare roots of the plants in a water-tight channel, usually constructed of PVC pipes. The importance of knowing and monitoring of pH, PPM, and EC in your hydroponic system is also tackled in this topic.
