Gro-Tanks are very simple, easy to use powerful NFT systems. They are easy to assemble and can be fitted into spaces that are too small for other systems. They come complete with tank, tray, delivery system, pump, top plate, spreader mat, ph down, ph test kit, emptying tube and detailed instructions.Why use the Gro-Tank?
- Low maintenance
- Even distribution of nutrient to the plant.
- Easy access to pump and nutrient.
- Large volume of nutrient solution to plant capacity.
A superb option as an introduction to NFT or for those who require a smaller system.
Very simple to use and maintain.

NFT stands for ‘Nutrient Film Technique’. A thin film of nutrient solution flows through the roots of your plants providing them with all the elements they need. The only medium used is the medium that the plants are started in, it is a ‘bare rooted’ technique.
In a Nutriculture NFT system the nutrient solution is contained in a tank. Your plants sit on a tray or ‘channel’ above the tank and nutrient solution is pumped up to the ‘channel’ and flows over the roots of your plants. Unused nutrient solution drains back into the tank ready to be passed over the roots again.
A constant supply of water and nutrition to the roots combined with unlimited access to oxygen means you can expect up to 4x the yield of traditional soil growing.
