The perfect NFT hydroponics tray system for the home, including water reservoir.
Water gets distributed evenly along the bottom of the tray through the diamond shaped array offering lots of oxygen to the roots for fast plant growth.
The board on top of the NFT tray is supplied without any holes so you can decide how many holes you want cut and whether they must be round (for netpots) or square (for Rockwool trays).
How it works?
The nutrient rich water is pumped up from the reservoir to the top of the tray. The tray is shaped at a slight angle which will cause the water to cascade from the highest to the lowest point and back into the water reservoir below.
You can use the tray for germination by letting the rockwool or foam trays lie at the bottom of the tray. Once germination takes place and the plant is about 5-10 centimeters tall, you can place the rockwool cube into a net pot and insert the netpot into the lid.
The lid as a lift up section to allow you to add hydroponic nutrients to the water in the tank. Nutrients must be added as per suppliers dosage recommendations.
You can grow many different edible plants such as lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, beans. It is also possible to grow ornamental plants such as flowers.
This system could potentiall also be used as a small aquaponics system, though you would have to add some sort of grow media in the tray above to act as an effective biofilter
