Functional  Description: Northy's X-stream 6
The conventional technique utilizes the use of a plastic tub with the plants in net pots suspended from the lid into the nutrient solution. An air pump powered airstone oxygenates the nutrient, if sufficiently oxygenated, the plant roots can remain submerged indefinitely. Once the plants are ready to flower, the level of the nutrient solution is gradually reduced to expose the roots to the air. Plants absorb vastly more oxygen directly from the air than from the oxygen dissolved in water. Deep water culture practice allows plant roots to take up  large quantities of oxygen while also allowing the uptake of nutrients. This leads to rapid growth throughout the life of the plant.

It is recommended to start this type of indoor DWC with rock wool starter cubes. Once the seeds are germinated in cubes of rock wool, put them into the DWC net pots previously filled with hydroton. Fill the DWC system with water and hydroponic fertilizers up to the level of the solution in contact with the base of net pots.

This way, the hydroton will be in contact with the nutirents  that will be absorbed by the plants roots. Soon the plant will develop a robust root system that will naturally immerse in the nutrient solution. It will not be necessary to maintain the level of nutrient  to the same level of the base of the net pots.  It is recommended replacing the nutrient solution approximately once a week and wash the container / tank with hot water or H2O2 to remove any algae, mold and salt deposits. Every time you fill the tank, measure the EC & pH of the solution and ensure that its value is between 5.5 and 6.5.  Constantly monitor the pH.
