The tide table is a practical, easy-to-maintain and easy-to-use system for beginners or experienced horticulturists, without taking up too much space or surface area for your indoor crops. It allows you to grow your plants at human height. Irrigation is done by alternating filling and draining. The plants are placed on the tray in individual pots or in cubes of rockwool or coconut substrates or clay balls, which in turn are placed on a cultivation tray containing 2 to 5 cm of nutrient solution. The pump in the culture tray submerges the substrate with the nutrient solution. The nutrient solution submerges the substrate in the pots evenly. The water pump stops and the nutrients are discharged into the tank. This cycle called "sub-irrigation" starts again when the excess water is drained, it is done frequently and briefly. Clay beads may need one submergence per hour and other substrates, with better retention, may only need submergence once a day.

This cultivation system allows for very good results by oxygenating the roots properly and avoiding stagnation and the creation of residues. Nutrients are better absorbed, which favours good plant growth and better vigour. For maintenance, remember to disinfect the hose, the growing table and the tank with bleached water and run it through the system for a few hours, then rinse it with water.
