One of the oldest and most successful hydroponic methods is the wick or passive system. These simple to use and maintain systems rely on the capillary action of the medium or wicking material to bring nutrient solution to the root mass of the plant(s). Advantages of the wick system are self-regulation of nutrient intake by the plants, more efficient use of nutrient solution, less equipment to potentially fail (lower operation costs), and simplicity of use and operation. There are many different ways a grower can utilize a wick system in their garden and many growers are building their own simple systems. If you are a grower with limited knowledge in the construction of hydroponic systems or just looking for a small, simple, clean, pre-made passive system, Hydrofarm’s Emily’s Garden is for you.
Hydrofarm has re-designed the Emily’s Garden to fit the needs of the hobbyist indoor horticulturalist. Within the 16 x 24 inch base sit six 1-gallon planting containers that can be substituted for 24 smaller containers. Included is a high-output air pump that provides a constant flow of air into the six gallon reservoir. This ensures the nutrient solution stays well aerated and provides the optimal conditions for root development and vigorous plant growth. The newly designed clamp-on reservoir cover limits evaporation and eliminates algae growth due to light reaching the nutrient solution.
Emily’s Garden comes complete with everything a grower needs to start growing (minus the plants). Included are: a six gallon reservoir, clamp-on lid, six 1-gallon planting containers, air pump, air stones, plant starter cubes, hydroponic nutrients, hydroton, water level indicator, pH test kit, and complete operating instructions. Emily’s Garden is backed by a 1 year warranty.
