Large super-oxygenated pot
The Ebb & Flood is similar to the Flo Gro but it floods from the bottom instead of the top which makes it even more efficient than the Flo Gro at supplying oxygen to the roots.
The Ebb & Flood can either be filled with clay pebbles – acting as a large pot, or can be filled with pots containing any growing medium.
This bottom-flooding growing system with a timer produces massive yields thanks to the way it provides roots with superb access to oxygen.
Ebb & Flood provides the roots with fresh oxygen-rich air every feed. The stale air is pushed out each time the water rises into the 'Flood' table and when the water drains back into the tank fresh air is pulled into the root area.
The water left around the roots between the flood periods is highly oxygenated. Most rootzone diseases can't survive in an oxygen-rich environment, so you get healthy disease-free roots and highly productive plants.
Respond to the needs of the plant - It is very easy to monitor the amount of nutrient solution used and this allows experienced growers to tailor feeding schedules to get the optimum yields from their plants.
Golden Rule: Keeping a dedicated flood diary is the key to massive growth and yields. Note the number of floods compared to the amount of solution needed to top-up the system each day. The amount of solution used is directly related to rate of growth; maximise consumption and maximise growth. By experimenting with the number and duration of floods, growers will find the optimum number of floods for their growing environment. The flood diary can then be used as a guide to take the guesswork out of growing and achieve bigger yields time after time.
• If using clay pebbles treat the Ebb & Flood as a re-circulating hydroponic system and top up the tank every few days with half strength nutrient solution.
• If using an absorbent medium, the aim is to minimise run off and top up the tank with full strength nutrient solution.
• When using pots in Ebb & Flood, space the pots as required and cut holes in the correx top plate for them to sit through, this will keep light out of the root zone. Cover the base of the planter with spreader mat to allow the roots to grow out of the pots and onto the mat.
