This model of growing system is designed for rooms with limited height, while also utilizing the maximum potential of space and light in it.
It is a hydroponic apparatus utilizing the technique of nutrient film (NFT-nutrient film technique), which is arranged in a vertical growing system with gravity flowing through of nutrient water to cultivated plants.
In this system there is no solid medium, the roots are placed directly into the water which flows through the drainage system over the entire area of each of the successive planting containers, it also oxidizes all roots 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 2,5m² to be increased to an area of about 5m². Theoretically, it may be twice as powerful than horizontal systems, and allows for the harvest to be twice as high, for the same power lighting. It is also economical in the use of light in the middle of the pentagon, where the light illuminates an area much larger than the horizontal systems.
Further features: 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 taken 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.
