This model system is the most powerful growing system on the market!
There is no loss of light due to the maximum use of potential space and light.
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 the nutrient water to the cultivated plants.
In this system there is no 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 manages to oxidize 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 is in its category, the most powerful because it is the most economical, and because it allows an area of about 2,5m² to be increased to an area of about 9m². Theoretically, it may be more than three times more powerful than horizontal systems, it allows for there to be up to two and a half times as high crop yeild, with the same light output. It is also economical in the use of light in the middle of the pentagon, wherein each light illuminates an area three times 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.
Our NFT 4D VERTICAL system can also be used as an Aquaponic system.
