A wicking hydroponic system is a type of hydroponic gardening method that relies on capillary action to deliver water and nutrients to plants' root systems. Unlike some other hydroponic systems that use pumps or other mechanical means to deliver nutrients, wicking systems are passive and relatively simple to set up and maintain. Here are the key components and how a wicking hydroponic system works:

We have 4 options for you:
1. The endcap for a valve connection and a blind endcap that fits 2x3" the Vinyl Downspout
2. The endcap for a valve connection and a blind end cap + a valve that fits 2x3" the Vinyl Downspout
3. The endcap for a valve connection and a blind endcap that fits 3x4" the Vinyl Downspout
4. The endcap for a valve connection and a blind end cap + a valve that fits 2x3" the Vinyl Downspout
The Wick WedgeA 3D-printed Wick Wedge(Grow Spike) includes 3 parts that require assembly(a Wick cord is NOT included).The holes fit a 5mm(1/5 inch) wick cord.

🛠️Components of a Wicking Hydroponic System🛠️:Growing Medium:
Plants in a wicking hydroponic system are typically grown in a soilless medium, such as coconut coir, perlite, vermiculite, or a combination of these.

Container or Bed:
The growing medium is placed in a container or bed where the plants are situated. This container can be a pot, tray, or any suitable structure to hold the medium that you can put on top of the Vinyl Downspout.

Wick Material:
The wick material is a crucial component that draws water and nutrients from a reservoir to the growing medium. Common wick materials include cotton rope.

Nutrient Reservoir:
The nutrient reservoir holds the nutrient solution. It can be a separate container or part of the same structure as the growing medium.

☝️How a Wicking Hydroponic System Works☝️:Capillary Action:
The wick material, which is partially submerged in the nutrient solution, uses capillary action to draw the solution upward into the growing medium. Capillary action is the ability of a liquid to flow in narrow spaces against gravity.

Root Uptake:
As the nutrient solution is wicked up into the growing medium, plant roots come into contact with it. The roots absorb water and nutrients directly from the growing medium.

Gravity Drainage:
Excess nutrient solution that is not taken up by the plant's roots will naturally drain back into the reservoir due to gravity. This maintains a consistent level of solution in the reservoir.
