We've carried the advantages of
into the assembly of our systems. Our units are
industrial strength and free standing...requiring no additional external support...and
five minute assembly/disassembly
without tools...while remaining
without the use of sealants. All internal and external
easily accessible for
plant site is supported by a
feed line directly connected to a
custom turbulent-flow emitterless FeedStake.
This proprietary stake eliminates the troublesome
emitters, misters, and jets required in other systems.
The turbulent flow, wide-port aerates the steady flow of
nutrient solution as it is deposited at the base of each
plant. We've even eliminated the frustration of removing
the stake by replacing the typical barbed connection
with a threaded connection.
The included three inch diameter plastic NetPot plant
containers are the industry standard...easily
available locally...and are locked into the GrowTubes
proprietary PotLocks...eliminating a common problem in reduced medium systems...lack of mechanical plant support for the base
of the plant. By locking the baskets into the GrowTubes,
the plants are provided with all of the mechanical
support of a plant growing in dirt...perfect for
top-heavy fruiting plants that typically require
external support in hydroponic systems. Our PotLocks
also allow for relocation of entire
GrowTubes at will, without plant disruption. Transplant
shock, and the related loss of productivity due to
recovery, is a thing of the past.
unique assembly methods and exclusive
PotLocks allow entire GrowTubes to be moved at will ...without disrupting the plants. This eliminates the
'transplant shock' common with other systems. When
operating in continuous harvest setups, this capability
allows individual GrowTubes to be freely moved from the cloning station, through the vegetative growth
area, and onto the flowering area... without requiring
the plant to be removed from the GrowTube. Systems
continuous harvest methods,
where the crop is relocated through the different grow
areas, are capable of producing a complete crop every
50-60 days (your mileage may vary).

modular design allows
any size system
to be assembled. Because the reservoir is automatically
expanded with the addition of each new GrowTube, the
system efficiency is not effected by the units size.
Systems of 1 to 1000 plants all have virtually the
same amount of reservoir per plant. New systems may be
ordered with any number of GrowTubes, and the optional
allows for future system expansion.
Overall system efficiency results in the lowest
overall operating cost of any hydroponic design on the
market. Not only is
the easiest to operate
and maintain, but it is also the most productive
in the long run.
