IWS Deep Water Culture DWC Oxy Pot XL
IWS Deep Water Culture DWC Oxy Pot XL growing systems have become popular because there’s no timer, very little media (clay pebbles) and the root growth is exceptional. The removable mesh basket enables growers to turn the plant for even light exposure and the locators keeps the air pump firmly in place.
This kit is supplied with a workhorse of a pump which should be left on 24/7 for rapid root growth allowing maximum oxygen to circulate.
How do I use the OxyPot Deep Water Culture Kit?
1-2 Plants are placed in the Oxypots mesh basket and the roots are suspended in the growing chamber where an air pump constantly oxygenates the solution.
The roots have constant access to nutrient solution in this oxygen rich environment which leads to fast growth. There’s no risk of providing too little or too much nutrient solution because the roots take-up what they need when they need it.
All you need is some plants and some nutrients and you’re on your way to growing hydroponically with very little effort.

How they Work
Plants grow in a mesh pot suspended in clay pebbles. Roots grow from the bottom of the mesh pot, into an oxygen rich nutrient solution.
Constantly giving them unlimited supplies of nutrients and lots of oxygen. You can expect massive root growth & tremendous yields. It’s incredible.
You don’t need to worry about using too much or too little water – plants use what they need – no less, no more.
• Explosive root growth
• Faster nutrient uptake
• Mind blowing yields
• No underwatering or overwatering
Hints and Tips
Pump – leave the pump on 24/7 – the plant’s roots need constant access to nutrient solution and oxygen.
Transplanting – young plants started in 1” rockwool cubes, root riots or jiffy’s can be transplanted into an Oxypot, they must be root bound before they go into the system
Plants under lights will take up water at a greater rate than they take up nutrient. Over time the EC of the solution will rise. Top up the pot with half strength nutrient solution, check EC and add extra nutrient if required.
Then adjust pH level and perform a complete solution change every 2-3 weeks, depending plant size, water quality and hardness.
