Hydroponic System

what is hydro

The help of technology simplifies the growing process, while effieciently increases output. There are many different systems developed for different types of plants. Here are some of the more common systems that we offer:


NFT SYSTEM

Nutrient film technqiue, or NFT, places plants inside channel gutters so that it’s roots come into direct contact with shallow streams of nutrient infused water. The gutters are angled in a downward slope so that the water automatically travels down in a constant flow cycle, recirculated back up by water pumps. This allows the roots to have direct water and nutrient source 24/7, without the need for daily watering of plants. NFT is most commonly used for leafy vegetables such as lettuce, and various leafy vegetables.

WATER CULTURE SYSTEM

Water culture is the simplest hydroponics system. The roots of the plant is directly submerged in full volume of water, already pre-mixed with nutrient solutions and adjusted pH levels. In some cases, an air pump will be set inside the water to help oxygenate the water and let the roots breathe.


AQUAPONICS

Aquaponics is a relatively new concept where both fish and plants are grown together in one integrated system. The fish emits waste which contains microbes. Microbes are forms of bacteria which converts the ammonia in the waste into nitrates, a form of nitrogen that plants use to grow. Essentially, fish waste is converted to vermicomost which acts as organic food for the plants. In return, plants would naturally filter out the water back for the fish.
