Introduction

At Harraz Farm & Garden we encourage growing herbs and vegetables at home. Excluding most fruits and tree-growing crops, there are hundreds of different herbs and fast-growing vegetables that you can watch evolve from a seed to your salad bowl. With minimal care, it can take 2-3 months to bring your favorite greens to your table. With extra care, that period could be reduced to just a few weeks. 

With this system, you will not only start growing food today, but you will also learn about the different types of plants and successful growing methods and tips. We have enclosed a few tips and methods in this manual to ensure convenient and successful handling and results.

Why Hydroponics?

Hydroponics means less space, growing more plants, and harvesting more yield! 

Hydroponics means saving up to at least 90% of water usage for each plant!! 

Hydroponics means fewer things that can mess with your plant, many pests are carried in the soil, so growing without it gives you a more hygienic growing system with fewer problems & diseases. 

Hydroponics by definition is a method of growing plants in a water-based, nutrient-rich solution, it is a soil-less growing method, instead of using soil, the root system is supported by using an inert medium such as Rock Wool (there are other growing media to be used), and the roots are submerged in water rich with the needed nutrients. 

No Soil?

For plants to grow, a process called photosynthesis is needed, the plant uses sunlight and chlorophyll which is inside their leaves, to convert carbon dioxide and water into Glucose and oxygen 

Equation: 6CO2 + 6H2O —> C6H12O6 + 6O2

Soil is not mentioned at all in the above equation, then it’s not essential to any part of the growing process, what the plant needs is Air, Water, Sun, and Nutrients.

Types of Hydroponics

There are various types of hydroponics:

  • Deep Water Culture (DWC) systems.
  • Nutrient film technique (NFT) system.
  • Dutch bucket.
  • Dripping systems.

In this manual, we will discuss the Nutrient film technique (NFT) system.  Please refer to this manual for a comprehensive description of all the included items and the needed steps for a successful growing experience.

This System Includes:

  • Adjustable metal body:
  1. 5 metals (100 cm)
  2. 4 metals (65 cm)
  3. 4 metals (85 cm)
  4. 4 wheels
  5. Nails
  • 1 Water Reservoir 70L+ Reflective Aluminum
  • 1 NFT25 Chasis – 5 long plastic tubes with 5 holes per tube + 2 short tubes + 2 elbows
  • Main irrigation hoses 
  • 30 Hydroponic Net Pots
  • 1 x Grodan Rockwool – MPM blocks 4x4x4 pack of 24
  • 1 Water Pump
  • 3 Premium Types of Seeds
  • Hydro Solution A + Hydro Solution B (3L + 3L)
  • PH Down (250 ml)
  • 2 Syringes (10ml) (50ml)
  • 3 x T shaped Connector

 

Add Ons:

  • PH Meter (Need to buy)
  • EC Meter (Need to buy)
  • Sprayer (Need to Buy): EGP “Price is subject to size and quality”
  • Thin Scissor: “Price is subject to type”

Note: Please read about each plant type that you are growing hydroponically

You Need to Have:

  • A sunny spot with full sun exposure at least 5-6 hours a day.
  1. The indoor setup might slow plant growth due to a lack of sunlight.
  2. The outdoor setup might need some shade during hot summer days.
  • A power plug is nearby to connect the water pump for irrigation.
  • A notebook to track growth progress, record learning lessons, and schedule seedlings.
  • A watering can or a plastic can adjust your water’s EC, and PH and add water to a reservoir.

 

Description of items:

  • The Metal Body: The body is adjustable. The top of the body has 2 metals for the width and 2 metals for the length. The bottom has 2 metals for the width, an extra 1 metal to hold the reservoir, 2 metals for the length, and 4 wheels. The height has 4 metals. (Nails included).
    • Water Reservoir: A 50-liter plastic box with a cover. This reservoir is the plant’s habitat, water, and nutrient source. Please note: The box cannot be transparent to prevent the formation of algae, so it must be covered with reflective aluminum.
    • Hydroponic Tubes:  Each long tube has 3 holes and is connected to the short tube with an elbow and into the reservoir. These plastic tubes are responsible for the drainage of the nutrient-filled water from the cups back to the reservoir. 
    • Hoses: A vertical hose that delivers water from the reservoir to the main hose and then branched into thinner hoses connected to each tube which are responsible for the plant’s irrigation. 
  • Net Pot: Small plastic cups designed to nurture roots when using hydroponic planting.
  • Rockwool: Natural material made from volcanic basalt. It has high water retention and great aeration for the roots, so it is the easiest and the most convenient growing medium. It is used to germinate the seeds in and then gets transferred into the system.
    • Water Pump: Responsible for pumping the nutrient-filled water to the roots of the plants. It keeps the flow of water throughout the system, preventing roots from dying.
    • Premium Seeds: We have a wide selection of seasonal premium seeds that you can choose from.
  • Hydro Solution: Hydroponic Solution acts as food for the plants. It consists of the minerals needed for any plant’s growth. The minerals are adjusted according to plant type and the EC levels required. It comes as an A & B solution: A is added, then stirred well, then B is added. Our hydro solution is one of the best in the market with a high-scale output: every 2.5 ml of solution serves 1 liter of water and increases the EC by (1.2-1.8).
  • PH Down: Nitric acid is used to adjust the PH of the water to the suitable PH level required. Plants usually prefer a PH range between 5.5 to 7.
  • Syringe: Syringe to scale the nitric acid and hydro solution by milli liters
