Product description Brand name and product description

Phytoponics designs and manufactures deep water culture hydroponic systems. Deep water culture refers to a method of growing where plant roots are fully submerged in oxygenated water with no soil or substrate. The hydroponic systems are designed for commercial producer growers, and specifically for nutrient intensive vine crops, soft or exotic fruits, and high value crops such as medical grade cannabis. The root zone of the crops can be monitored to ensure the correct oxygen and nutrient levels. The materials used in the system are all multi-use and recyclable.
