Types of Systems

Understanding the Wick System

passive

This passive hydroponic system contains no moving parts. Nutrient solution moves along a wick from the reservoir to the growing media. Most gardeners using this system opt for pro-mix, coconut fiber, vermiculite or perlite.

Growing large plants may be difficult with this type of system, as those plants could require more nutrient solution than the wick can provide.
