Automatic irrigation systems
Growing with automatic watering systems has many advantages. It gives you the freedom to be away from home and will lead to increased yields. Your plants will never dry out and will always get there daily water needs. For all our growing cabinets we have specially designed irrigation systems. These systems are easy to use and maintain. The medium you choose to use determines the system you will use in the cabinet.
For growing with soil in pots we advise using the Smart Valve or Blumat system. Both these systems use a membrane to release water when the soil is dry. These systems work without timers and pumps and are very reliable.
Drip irrigation systems
We have for most of our grow cabinets custom made drip irrigation system. Growing on rockwool slabs requires regular watering. Your plants grow on rockwool. The needed nutrients are obtained from fertilizer added to the water. The nutrient rich water is pumped into the rockwool slabs and the excess water runs back into the watertank. Therefore recirculating the water supply. Growing on rockwool gives you many options and allows to increase nutrient supply to your plants.
Eb & Flow
A lot of people prefer to give water from the bottom of the pot. After all this is where most of the roots are found. With the Eb & Flow irrigation system the pots are placed in a water tight tray. On set times a layer of water is pumped into the tray (flow). Via holes in the bottom of the pot water is absorbed. Once the pump stops the water drains back into the water tank (eb).
Flow & Grow
The Flow & Grow growsystem is based on hydroponics. This is the growing of plants in water. Add the necessary nutrients to the water. There is no medium to pass. So no more carrying bags of soil. It is a farming method that is increasingly being used. Not only for plants but also for vegetable cultivation in the greenhouse, such as tomato and chicory.
An important advantage is that you can dispense nutrients easily and accurately. Also causers of plant diseases, such as fungi and bacteria, are kept under control easier than with traditional breeding processes.
