Its popularity is thanks to its combination of cant go wrong simplicity and great results. NFT grown plants typically produce 3 to 4x greater yield than those grown in soil. In NFT nutrients are added to water and this solution is contained in a tank. Plants sit on a grow tray above the tank and the nutrient solution is pumped up to the grow tray and constantly flows over the roots of your plants, constantly giving your plants the nutrients they need. Whatever the plants dont need drains into a tank ready to be passed over the roots again.
The nutrient solution flows over the roots as a thin film at only 1-3mm deep. The flow is quite slow, just fast enough so that the water is in constant motion.The only growing medium used is the rockwool that you started the plant in. A self-contained NFT system offering 4 times the yield of passive growing. Size: 1010mm x 485mm x 205mm 43.25" x 19" x 8.
