SIMPLE AND MASSIVELY EFFECTIVE
Grow your plants using NFT and experience up to 4x the yields achieved with traditional soil methods!
The original domestic hydro system, first launched by Nutriculture in 1976.
What is NFT?
NFT stands for ‘Nutrient Film Technique’. A thin film of nutrient solution flows through the roots of your plants providing them with all the elements they need. The only medium used is the medium that the plants are started in, it is a ‘bare rooted’ technique.
In a Nutriculture NFT system the nutrient solution is contained in a tank. Your plants sit on a tray or ‘channel’ above the tank and nutrient solution is pumped up to the ‘channel’ and flows over the roots of your plants. Unused nutrient solution drains back into the tank ready to be passed over the roots again.
A constant supply of water and nutrition to the roots combined with unlimited access to oxygen means you can expect up to 4x the yield of traditional soil growing.
Why NFT produces great results
Gro-Tanks available in 6 sizes
Multi-Ducts available in 10 sizes
Gro-Tanks are often referred to as 'pure hydroponics' because virtually no growing medium is used and roots benefit from unrestricted access to oxygen.
Nutrient solution is constantly pumped up from the reservoir to the roots in the planting channel and flows back into the reservoir ready to be passed over the roots again.
Zero waste – the only growing medium used is the rockwool block the plants were started in. This means there's less chance of disease and less waste material to throw away at the end of the season.
3x Bigger Yields - The constant supply of water and nutrients directly to the roots combined with unlimited access to oxygen means plants are healthier, faster growing and produce 3x more yield than if grown using traditional soil methods.
Healthier plants – plants are never under-fed or over-watered and there is no build up of salts in the root zone.
Get more out of a small space - Gro-Tanks are just 20cm tall and there's a system for every tent size!
