STANDARD NUTRIENTS NFT/AERO
For cultivation on NFT/Aero systems (also known as recirculating systems) and so-called bubble and DWC (Deep Water Culture) systems, Ferro has three standard nutrient solutions on offer, namely NFT/Aero Start A&B, NFT/Aero Growth A&B and NFT/Aero Bloom A&B. As the nutrients are reused, these systems have unique compositions.
NFT/AERO START A&B
The NFT/Aero START nutrient solution is a proper starter feed for use during the first 10 days. The nutrient solution ensures that the initial basic needs of young plants are met. When cultivating on NFT/Aero systems, it is extremely important to keep the pH in the medium (water/air) at a stable level between the optimum values of 5.0 and 6.0. Ferro’s Standard NFT/Aero nutrient solution has been specifically developed to achieve this. A stable pH level and the best quality fertilisers are absolutely essential for giving plants on NFT/Aero systems a good start. Bubble generation (using air stones in a nutrient solution) and atomising nutrient solutions in tubes or in other ways are also considered NFT/Aero systems. The Standard NFT/Aero Start nutrient solution is a two-component feed comprising NFT/Aero Start A and NFT/Aero Start B.
Using NFT/Aero Start feed A&B guarantees your plants a good start, whatever recirculating system you use!
NFT/AERO GROWTH A&B
The Standard NFT/Aero GROWTH A&B nutrient solution is used during the growth phase of plants on NFT/Aero systems. During this phase, the needs of plants change, as does the requirement for regulating the pH level of the medium. This is an ideal two-component feed for plants during the growth phase. Also perfect for stock plants grown using NFT/Aero systems. Standard NFT/Aero Growth A & Standard NFT/Aero Growth B.
NFT/AERO BLOOM A&B
The NFT/Aero BLOOM nutrient solution is for plants during the flowering phase. This is a comprehensive feed containing the perfect regime for your flowering plants on NFT/Aero systems. Use this feed throughout your plants’ flowering phase. The NFT/Aero Bloom nutrient solution is also a two-component feed, comprising NFT/Aero Bloom A and NFT/Aero Bloom B.
