Nutriculture Gro-Tanks give roots virtually unrestricted access to oxygen. Yields are typically 3x bigger than if growing in pots.
Plants are placed in rockwool blocks and the roots grow along the planting channel benefiting from superb access to oxygen.
Nutrient solution is constantly pumped to the roots, there’s no timer to programme.
Because virtually no growing medium is used there’s nothing to transport or throw away at the end of the grow.
Ensure plants are root bound before they go into the system. An abundance of white roots should be visible on the outside of the starter media.
As a rule of thumb: 1 plant per square foot. This can be increased or decreased depending on plant variety.
Pump runs for 24hrs. No need for a segmental timer or feeding schedule.
Completely remove plastic wrapping from rockwool cubes or remove pots if using soil or coco. This allows the roots to access more oxygen.
NFT is a bare rooted growing technique. All but the smallest of plants will need additional support, i.e. yoyo’s or pea netting.
Cut lengths of spreader mat long enough to allow an overhang of a few inches from the channel into the tank. No trickling water sounds!
