  • Food Storage
  • Grow Chambers

The Hydroponics Deck is the USG Ishimura's internal farm which produces the food needed to feed the many workers aboard the ship as well as providing a sustainable production of oxygen. It is typically maintained by horticulturalists such as Elizabeth Cross, who monitored the production levels of the food. This Deck came under trouble when the Leviathan grew into food storage and began polluting the air.

A massive area, it spans the entire top portion of the Ishimura's two cargo towers and is divided into 2 primary sections: the multi-level Vegetation Grow Chambers and the centrally located cylindrical Food Storage chamber. Directly before food storage is the air quality control and ventilation system, the Station features a large Hologram screen and controls that indicate air production, ventilation, and filtration systems.

This is where Isaac encounters Hammond, who is weak from breathing in the toxic air. He tells Isaac not to take off his helmet.

  • Hydroponics is a subset of hydroculture and is a method of growing plants without soil in water.
  • During Isaac's visit to the hydroponics deck, the West Grow Chamber seems to still be in a functional, healthy state despite the infestation of Necromorphs. The East Grow Chamber, however, has become completely soiled and rotted beyond use.
  • An ambience of crickets, monkeys and wildlife sounds can be heard throughout the West Grow Chamber, although these are likely just simulations as well as a unique battling music can be heard when fighting Necromorphs in there.
  • This is where Chapter 6: Environmental Hazard of Dead Space takes place.
  • At least two Hydroponics specialists are known: Elizabeth Cross and Catherine Howell.
  • The Corruption has spread very far into this part of the ship, since it's home to the Leviathan. It has apparently ruined the Ishimura's entire food supply.
  • The Grow Chamber shown in Dead Space: Downfall was larger and held many more plants than the West Grow Chamber in-game. This could mean that it was a different Grow Chamber, as it is unlikely that only two Grow Chambers could feed and give air to the entire ship.
  • This is the only place on the Ishimura where you can find Wheezers.
