The Ebb & Flood produces much bigger harvests than plants grown in traditional pots, but is as simple to use and is more versatile.
The timer triggers the pump to
‘flood’ the bottom of the growing medium and gravity pulls excess
solution back into the tank along with fresh air, ensuring the medium is
regularly flushed with nutrients and air resulting in a highly
oxygenated root zone and huge yields.
The FLOOD - A timer
controls how often nutrient solution is pumped up from the tank to
FLOOD the growing medium. During floods, the plants take the water and
nutrients they need and stale air is pushed out of the root zone .
The EBB Once the
growing medium is flooded to two thirds the solution drains (EBBs) back
into the tank, pulling fresh oxygen down directly to the roots.
Bigger Yields the
'little and often' feeding schedule, combined with the highly oxygenated
root zone, means a healthier plant and larger yields.
Match feed frequency to the needs of the plant -
Provide the perfect conditions for a plant throughout its lifecycle by
altering the frequency and duration of feeds. So that nutrient uptake is
optimised and yields are maximised.
grow in individual pots in clay, coco, rockwool or soil, so you can move
plants around under lights as and when required, or fill the planter
with clay pebbles – so that it becomes a large pot perfect for specimen
Space efficient– The 1.2m2 Ebb & Flood is just 22cms tall to maximise headroom.
Reliable– Built to last for decades with high performance fittings and top quality pumps have unrivalled reliability.
Nutriculture holds the record for the world’s longest tomato plant. It was grown in an Ebb & Flood system.
