DWC - Bubbleponics
Bubbleponics, DWC or Deep Water Culture is probably the most simple of DWC Hydroponics Systems. It generally consists of a bucket, mesh pot lid, air pump and air stone.
The bucket contains a nutrient solution that should be at least 25mm from the bottom of the mesh pot, this allows the plant constant access to oxygen.

Frequent topping up of nutrients and water is required and a weekly clean and refresh are recommended.
