Notes from Aqua Gardening

  • For best results, choose the recommended NFT Channel size based on the specific plant you wish to grow: 100mm for lettuce, herbs, and strawberries; 155mm for cherry tomatoes; and 225mm for large vegetables such as tomatoes
  • Longer NFT Channel lengths can be supplied for large orders, but consider shipping costs and logistics when requesting lengths longer than 3 metres

NFT Channel, often referred to as hydroponic gully, is available in 3 metre lengths. They can be joined together and extended using NFT Channel Joiners. NFT End caps are also available with a spout or without a spout and can be attached to the end of the NFT Channel. Use a strong silicon sealer around the joiners and end caps - better than regular plumbing grade to ensure a good seal. When purchasing NFT Channel, please also consider if you will need the NFT Lid. The NFT Lid clips onto the NFT Channel. Holes can then be drilled into the NFT Lid to suit hydroponics-shop/pots-containers/hydroponic-net-pots/">Net Pots which hold the grow media and the plants roots.
