The Under Current Recirculating Deep Water Culture (RDWC) System features the patented Sub-Current Culture circulation method. The Under Current® utilizes negative water pressure to recirculate oxygenated nutrient solution through the plant’s root zone ensuring pH and EC levels are uniform throughout the entire system.

What is current culture hydroponics?
Formulated by Current Culture, Cultured Solutions is their line of hydroponic nutrients. These nutrients are specifically designed to increase the efficiency of your hydro system, and provide your plants with everything they need to contribute to a heavy harvest.
How often should you change RDWC water?
Therefore, every 1-2 weeks (generally the longest you should wait before changing your nutrient solution is three weeks), you should remove your plants from the reservoir to replace and refresh the hydroponic nutrient solution, then place the plants back in the reservoir.
What does RDWC mean in hydroponics?
RDWC hydroponics systems ( Recirculating Deep Water Culture ) are an improved or “hybrid”way to grow crops versus static DWC (Deep Water Culture Systems).
How does a RDWC system work?
Recirculating deep water culture works by combining multiple individual deep water culture systems into a single system. Each of these systems is connected together with a series of pipes. This allows all pH and nutrient checks to be done at the same time, usually in a separate bucket called the control tank.
How do you stop algae growing in hydroponics?
Managing Algae in Hydroponic Systems: Step by Step
- Prevention. Decreasing sunlight on the water. Use opaque pipes and tubing. Use plastic film. Correct growing medium.
- Elimination. Drain the System. Create a Cleaning Solution. Remove any Pumps and Air Stones. Remove Hard to Access Parts and Debris.
How do you keep a pH stable in hydroponics?
Make sure you use products that are formulated for hydroponic systems. For small systems or short-term results, you can add weak acids such as vinegar or citric acid. Automatic pH controllers cost more than pH up or pH down products but they keep the pH at consistent levels.
Is RDWC better than DWC?
Much like it’s cousin, the bubble bucket, the recirculating deep water culture system (RDWC, better known as DWC) quickly grows plants in a near ideal environment. The main difference is that the system supports multiple sites and allows you to grow a much larger crop of the same plant with far easier maintenance.
What is considered a high RDW?
A high RDW means you have both very small and very large red blood cells. You may also have a “normal” RDW. A normal RDW range is 12.2%–16.1% for women and 11.8%–14.5% for men.
How do you grow RDWC?
- Rinse grow rocks/stones thoroughly before use.
- Fill the net pot to a 2” depth with rocks/ stones.
- Rest bare root cutting on rocks/stones and gently fill remaining space up to 1” from the top lip of the net pot.
- Adjust system water level to the top of root crown.
How do you maintain RDWC?
How To Maintain Your Hydroponic Reservoir
- Maintain Proper Nutrient Solution Temperature. It’s important to keep your nutrient solution at between 65-75 degrees.
- Top off Your Hydroponic Reservoir.
- Change Out The Water.
- Provide Proper Aeration.
- Clean The Filter.
- Do Regular pH and EC Checks.
- Check Your Equipment.
How do you clean current culture?
Cleaning the Current Culture RDWC (plants removed)
- Pull out root mass and discard air stones.
- Drain the system completely, with no leftover debris.
- Wipe all pieces down including the air hose, net pots, and lids.
- Run a mixture of regular water and sterilizing solution through the entire system for at least six hours.
