Is Deep Water Culture > Jurassic Grow Water?
I took this from another board making some legitamite points. I don't know enough about growing to answer, maybe someone does here?
Jurassic Oxygenation Watering System
Does anybody else who has ever been around marijuana grow systems think the name of this product is fucking retarded?
I know how marijuana is grown, 'Jurassic Oxygenation' isn't a grow technique that I've ever heard of. It's just an exotic and bizarre term.
Why then would you name a product after a grow technique that doesn't exist...? Because your team is a bunch of stoners and thought it sounded cool?
Okay, now what are the benefits of 'jurassic oxygenation'? PER THIS ADVERTISEMENT:
Our system incorporates pure oxygen gas (95% and higher) via the specialized American Green Oxygen concentrator. This gas is then fed to the submersible unit within a reservoir tank, which molecularly pressurizes oxygen and water together, resulting in increased dissolved oxygen levels in water. The range is seen anywhere from 30 to 50 ppm of oxygen
Studies have shown that plants that are watered with up to levels of 22 ppm of oxygen, explosive growth is resulted.
Okay, so this device can be used within a hydroponic grow setup that is attempting to use aeration to increase the nutrient uptake of the grower's plants. Growers currently use a method called air stones to accomplish this.
The ad mentions air stones saying:
Air stones introduce ambient air via a bubbling method to increase oxygen concentration into water. Ambient air constitutes 78% Nitrogen, 21% Oxygen, .93% Argon, .039% CO2 and small amounts of other gasses. This methodology increases oxygen saturation in water on an average between 2-4 PPM Oxygen.
Now you need to understand, air stones are the least efficient current method at increasing oxygen uptake to MJ plants. The much more commonly used method is Deep Water Culture or DWC.
DWC provides up to 500ppm of oxygen to plants.
So basically, this $11,000 product (the cost of a living room sized grow), whose sole purpose is to increase oxygen PPM, a process which already has a MUCH more efficient alternative available on the market, THIS is supposed to mean something?
THIS IS A COMPLETE JOKE! No grower in their right mind would purchase this product. Even if the grower was using the air stones method, they would only see a MAXIMUM 18ppm increase in Oxygen (citing the ad's reference to plant growth increasing with up to 22ppm oxygen).
Why would ANYBODY buy this? Someone please respond to this, I'M NOT TRYING TO BASH THIS STOCK.
