Drip systems are extremely common in commercial operations, but less common in recreational gardens.

This is because they’re simple to operate a a large scale, but slightly overkill for a smaller garden.

Regardless, they’re a great way to grow hydroponically that you should consider.

Benefits of Drip Systems :-

  • High level of control over feeding and watering schedule
  • Less likely to break
  • Relatively cheap

Downsides of Drip Systems :-

  • May be overkill for a smaller garden
  • Fluctuating pH and nutrient levels (if using recirculating system)
  • High waste (if using waste system)
