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)
