A perfect system for learning how to grow hydroponically using the recirculating nutrient film technique (NFT), the CropKing NFT 8-25 is a great way to test your market for hydroponic lettuce, herbs, and other leafy vegetables. You can grow healthy crops in a greenhouse or indoors and offer your produce to local restaurants, farmer’s markets, or anyone that desires fresh, local herbs and leafy vegetables.
We recommend growing your crops using Grodan rockwool cubes since they fit perfectly into the pre-punched top cover holes. It is also highly recommended to have your water tested to determine if your source water is suitable for hydroponics. CropKing offers individual fertilizer components for growers who wish to have complete control over their custom nutrient regimes. We also offer a two-part pre-mixed fertilizer consisting of CropKing’s HydroGro Leafy and calcium nitrate that is suitable for growing most leafy crops.
Make sure to take a look at our selection of lettuce varieties that perform well in our hydroponic NFT systems.
