For those who are constrained by length, width and depth, we have developed the 3SM.
It is a hydroponic apparatus utilizing the technique of the nutrient film (NFT-nutrient film technique), which is arranged in a vertical growing system with gravity flow through of nutrient water to cultivated plants.
In this system there is no solid media, the roots are placed directly into the water which flows through the drainage system over the entire area of each successive planting container, it also oxidizes without light (to eliminate the formation of algae).
By this design an even supply of nutrients to each plant in the system is ensured.
This system allows an area of about 2,25m² in an area of about 3m².
Further features are easy maintenance, either when mixing the simple nutrient solution and by its control and good access to the plants for their maintenance as well as during harvesting. The issue of waste in a system using solid media (clay, rockwool, clay ...), is reduced, which is a financial benefit for each harvest, also reducing the time taked to dispose of waste or cleaning of reusable material (expanded clay). The only waste is the root system of plants, which after opening the lid is simply pulled out and can be recycled as compost.
Planting containers can be easily removed and washed.
Our NFT 4D VERTICAL system can also be used as an Aquaponic system.
