Phase 3 is up and running!
I'm a little behind in my blog posts. I wanted to update everyone on our progress. We are now operating Phase 3 in the greenhouse, which is the NFT system (Nutrient Film Technique). A thin layer of system water runs through the tunnels and the plants roots dangle down into the water, feeding from the nutrients. At the end of the tunnel, the water pours down into a reservoir tank and when the tank is filled up, the pump turns on and sends the water back to the clarifier. Continuous flow and self-circulating. So cool!
Here are a few pics of the NFT:
