An advantage of this hydroponics system is that it's simple and suited to growing a wide variety of plants, making it the most popular choice for homemade hydroponics systems. The ebb and flow system is also ideal for flower and ornamental plant lovers. You can place potted plants in the tray instead of mass-planting, and remove and display your plants whenever you like.
A disadvantage of this system is that it relies on electricity. If cost or power outages are a concern, it is probably not the best hydroponics system for you.
