A quick primer on the flood and drain project,
also known as ebb and flow.

We decided a pause would be good here to help you take a step back and look at the system before you get started ordering equipment and supplies.

Ebb and flow is a hydroponics system widely used because of its simple design, reliability and low cost. Pots containing neutral medium (such as clay balls, perlite or coco coir) are planted with young seedlings. The planting medium is not meant to provide any nutrients at all, but simply to support the plant and allow easy flow of nutrient solution around the roots.

The pots are set upon a drain tray which is periodically flooded with a balanced nutrient solution. The liquid enters through holes in the bottom of the pots and soak the medium and plant roots for a short period of time. Then the solution is allowed to drain away, allowing the plants to aerate and breathe.

That's it in a nutshell!
