Unlike conventional soilless cultivation systems, in the Miracle Hydroponics System, plastic components were used instead of supporting material to keep the plant body perpendicular to the earth. In this way, the roots are suspended in a culture solution freely without being exposed to any resistance or support. The culture solution, in where the roots are suspended, contains an optimal ratio of nutrients required for plant development. Therefore, the plant absorbs nutrients steadily and maintains high-speed development. Miracle Hydroponics System eliminates the stress of the soil applied on the root of the plant and leads to a growth rate of the plants 2 times faster than that of the existing agricultural systems.
The culture solution of Miracle Hydroponics System, that contains all nutrients required, is stored in a vessel at the optimum temperature for the plant. This solution is sent into plant production deposits from the vessel. The plant roots in cultivation deposits absorb the necessary nutrients and water efficiently from the culture solution at the appropriate temperature for the nutrient absorption. Excess culture solution returns to the plant solution vessel via the drainage system. The returned excess solution is sent to the plant again after being enriched with the required amount of desired components. In this way, minerals, nutrients and water ratios in the culture solution circulated stand constant.
Thanks to the stable environment provided by Miracle Hydroponics System, plant health, development, disease resistance and product yield will be reached to highest possible levels.
