Also see new 30 plant towers in our shop, plus many new accessories. Complete hydroponic system which has been handcrafted rather than 3d printed, for a more organic appearance and smoother water flow. This is a hydroponic drip/nutrient film technique hybrid system that uses no soil, only water with a small amount of nutrients added. This system has been created to give everyone a more affordable way in to hydroponics that gives great results.
The compact size and use of vertical space allows for all-year-round growing, even for those without gardens. This tower can be placed in a greenhouse, conservatory or patio window, or beside a front door, on a balcony or even indoors by a window - now everyone can grow amazing fruit, salads, herbs and vegetables with this system. (that's why nasa uses these techniques to grow food in space).
The tower can be seen pictured next to an identical, planted tower, showing the results that can be achieved. You can see strong crops of tomatoes, strawberries, lettuce, rocket, peppers, raspberries and stevia all thriving in a single tower, taking up less than 35cm x 35cm floor space this compact size, and near silent running, gives great flexibility of positioning, even indoors, for all-year-round growing. Each hydroponic tower system holds 18 plants and comes with.
Water pump with power supply and water filter and distribution system (uses only 1 watt). 20l reservoir food safe bucket.
Net cups, plant support pucks and a bag of pebbles to support roots of smaller plants. 100ml of "permabloom" nutrients (4-5 months supply). Constructed using only uv stabilised materials with no phthalates or bpa. Dimensions 104 x 33 x 33cm. To get up and running easily in hydroponics all that is needed is one tower system and some plants.
Living herbs and online plug plants and washing the roots off. You may wish to add a mechanical timer plug. Using these timers we run our towers 15 minutes per hour, only during daylight hours, to give plants resting time and give roots greater access to oxygen.Such cables are thin enough to pass through most closed windows, if the tower is to be located outside and no power is available. Full instructions for growing in the towers and also raising your own seeds will be added to the vhhydro website over the next week. Expertise is not required to get great results. Hydroponic systems use a pump to re-circulate water, nutrients and oxygen over the bare roots of each plant. Growing crops this way uses only 5% of the water, takes up 1/10th of the space, and grow in half the time with usually double the yield.
