What is DWC system and some advantages of this system
Jul 18, 2018

Deep Water Culture (DWC) is a special type of hydroponics where you grow plants with their roots immersed in an aerated nutrient solution. Find out how more and more cannabis growers are using DWC to achieve faster growth and larger yields.


While some cannabis cultivators simply grow plants in soil, others look into more elaborate growing techniques, such as hydroponics. Deep Water Culture (DWC) is one method of growing that can have many advantages. Find out what makes a DWC grow so rewarding, and how you can set up one of your very own!


WHAT IS DWC?


Deep Water Culture (DWC) is a style of hydroponic growing that does not use a medium. In a DWC setup, the plants are suspended in special pots or nets, with their roots stretching down, immersed into a pool of aerated, nutrient-rich water. Growing cannabis in a DWC setup can have many benefits as compared to some other growing methods.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF DEEP WATER CULTURE?


1.    FAST VEGETATIVE GROWTH AND BIGGER YIELDS

Plants grown in DWC setups have easier access to oxygen and nutrients, which means they spend less energy searching for nutrients and developing roots. As a result, plants will reward you with fast vegetative growth and excellent yields. In a good DWC setup with the right nutrients and strain, cannabis can grow as much as 10cm in a single day!

Know that the speed of growth in a DWC doesn’t affect when your plants will be ready to harvest. The fast veg growth will result in bigger plants with fatter buds, but they will still require a normal flowering time.

2.    REDUCED RISK OF PESTS

Since a DWC setup doesn’t use any growing medium, there is little risk of bugs and other cannabis pests latching on.
