8cm Net Pot
The 8cm Net Pot is very popular with growers using Deep Water Culture (DWC) techniques. With DWC, the roots of the plant bathe in nutrient solution and stay healthy by the addition of oxygen to the solution. That prevents the liquid from stagnating and causing the roots to rot. In conjunction with a 20 Litre Black Bucket and Lid it is easy to make a Do-It-Yourself DWC hydroponics system. Cut a hole in the lid and place the net pot in it. Then simply add a Nutrient Aeration Kit to provide the necessary oxygen to the roots of the plants. The 8cm Net pot is also suitable for a range of other self made systems and being smaller than the 14cm version, may suit you better.
