What’s Flood & Drain?
It’s an easy way of trapping lots of oxygen to your roots! Loads of growers swear by it.
Pots are filled with a growing media that doesn’t hold much water (like clay pebbled). Each pot’s connected to a feed tank individually or in groups.
When it’s time to feed, nutrient solution is pumped into pots (to 8cm below the rim of inner pots). When feeding ends, nutrient is drained away. This is known as a flood cycle.
With each flood:
• Stale air is pushed away from roots
• Fresh, oxygen rich air is locked the root zone
• Your media gets a hit of nutrient solution, which is slowly released to roots
As a result, you boost root mass, nutrient uptake, plant growth and your overall yield while preventing most root diseases from taking hold.
