The NFT system
is a nutrient film technology, and most vegetables can be grown with the NFT system. As a beginner, hydroponic planting with the NFT system is very easy to use. Even experienced growers prefer to use the NFT system to grow some lightweight hydroponic vegetables, because the NFT system is easy to manage and the vegetables grow quickly on it.
Vegetables that can be grown by the NFT system
Although cucumbers have vines, they can still be planted with the NFT system. You only need to give the cucumber some supports, and its vines can climb and grow. We used the NFT system to grow fruit cucumbers. The whole growth process of cucumbers is very fast, and they taste crunchy and sweet after harvesting.
Kale has rich nutritional value, it contains a variety of minerals, especially high in calcium, iron, and potassium. The leaves of kale can be stripped continuously, and new young leaves are continuously produced. It has good palatability, crisp texture and clear taste.
The kale grown with the NFT system grows relatively fast, and it can be said to be unique among many vegetables because it grows taller than ordinary vegetables.
Lettuce and various green leafy vegetables can be grown on the NFT system. If you have a large planting space, you can choose a flat NFT system for planting. If you want to plant at home, or have a relatively small planting area, you can choose a vertical NFT system for planting.
The vertical NFT system allows you to grow more vegetables in a limited area, which is very suitable for home planting.
- Bitter chrysanthemum
Bitter chrysanthemums can also be grown with the NFT system. If you like to eat bitter chrysanthemums, you can use the NFT system to grow them at home, and you can taste fresh bitter chrysanthemums directly after harvesting.
Although the cabbage grows bigger, the NFT system can still be planted. Of course, the tower system
can also grow cabbages.
In addition to the vegetables mentioned above, the NFT system can also grow a variety of plants such as spinach, tomatoes, and strawberries. For beginners, as long as you dare to try and master the hydroponic technology, you can use the NFT system to grow good vegetables.
