Kratky Method 8 Cell Kit

Product Description
  • No electricity required
  • Great for beginners
  • The simplest form of hydroponics

Kratky method (named after B.A. Kratky) is a passive growing method. This means that no pumps or electricity are needed during the growth cycle. A young seedling is placed onto a raft, similar to a standard hydroponic raft (DWC) system. The difference between this and a raft system is that in the Kratky method, the raft sits fixed atop a tank filled with water and nutrient solution which sits stagnant.

Throughout the growth cycle, the water level drops as the roots grow, creating a growing ‘air zone’ for the roots.

By the time the plant is ready for harvest, the nutrient water is nearly depleted. From here you can just replenish the water & nutrient solution and place fresh transplants on top of the tank. A spray down and vacuuming of the tank is needed after 3–5 cycles.  

Unlike in recirculating hydroponic systems, Kratky growers calculate the amount of nutrient solution for each tank only once. The solution does not require additional adjustments.

This is a great benefit to a new grower who wants to keep things as simple as possible.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • I bought a Kratky kit. Recently I found some mosquito larvae in the water. How do I prevent mosquitoes from getting into the water?

    You may put Bti into the water. The larvae ingest the Bti, and are killed within a few days.

  • Do I need to separately purchase a growing media to place inside the net pot?

    We will include a slab of germination sponge if you purchase the full kit option. :)

  • What's the dimension of the kit?

    Hi, the dimension is 57 cm (L) x 43 cm (W) x 14 cm (H).
