It is a complete and stand-alone hydroponic system having minimum requirements. Kratky System gives you surety of 100% fresh, pesticides-free, flavorful, and nutrient-rich harvest in a hassle-free manner; just a few quick & easy steps. The Kratky Method is basically a passive hydroponic technique in which plants are suspended above the nutrient-rich water kept in a reservoir. Here roots are directly submerged into non-circulating nutrient water. It is based on a very simple principle and hence it is absolutely energy & cost-efficient.
Usually air pump is not needed with this system but stagnant water gradually loses oxygen with time. To solve this problem you can attach an air pump with an air stone to supply oxygen to the water. But what does an air pump do?
- Controls Water Temperature
- Maintains Oxygen Level
- Maintains EC & pH
- Do not let water stagnant
This system is small and easy movable, thus space is no more a barrier between you and your favorite plants.
