Foam rafts for Deep Water Culture

DWC foam rafts are commonly used to hold plants above nutrient and oxygen rich water. They can sit right on top of the water, or a short distance above the water, as long as the plants they are supporting still have their roots in the water. Using this method you can grow plants faster than a regular media grow bed with clay pebbles, and save the clean up required in media beds which do not filter well.

The rafts are a suitable thickness of 40mm to prevent snapping easily and float while fully laden with plants. If you want to grow large aquaponic or hydroponic plants and trees, a brick or inert block should be placed under the raft to support it. Our aquaponic grow beds here have suitable 10mm rims for the rafts to ensure if they are loaded up they will not sink with the plants.
