Flood & Drain (Also known as Ebb and Flow) is known to be a very stable method of growing and often it is highly recommended for beginner growers who are looking for a forgiving hydro system that will still deliver great results.
These particular systems, are reliable and stable, as well as being very versatile, which means they offer the grower the option to control every aspect of their growing system. For example, you can choose whichever medium you prefer for your plants. You can also opt to go with or without pots, and you can also determine the duration and number of plant feeds you require.
Why They are Great:
Perfect for growers who want to:
Optimise root access to oxygen
Finely tune feeds
Decide own plant spacing
Make the most of available space with a self-contained system
Grow in an area with limited height – these Grow Systems are a maximum of 36cm tall.

How to Use
The frequency of watering will heavily depend on the substrate you choose; Faster draining mediums such as clay balls or growstones will require as many as 8 flood cycles a day whereas slower draining substrates like soil or coco will require less frequent cycles, as few as 1 a day.
As plants get larger, they will use an increasing amount of nutrients and water per day. Make sure your flood schedule accommodates for the increasing hunger of growing plants.
