Foody 8 Hydroponic Tower
by Foody Vertical Gardens
The Foody 8 Hydroponic system encourages rapid plant growth by circulating water and nutrients from the base reservoir through the pods and the plant roots. The growing pods are filled with growing medium (like clay pebbles - purchased separately), that hold the plants and moderate temperature.
Indoor or Outdoor Growing: This system uses clay pebbles as growing medium, which help moderate outdoor temperature fluctuations and offer great aeration and drainage. System also works well indoors.
Space Saver: Planting pockets for up to 40 plants, with a 2 sq ft. foot print.
Automatic Watering: Hydroponic system automatically circulates water and nutrients to plants. No potting soil needed.
Grow all year: Move indoors in the winter for year round growing.
Stay off your knees: Tower stands 5 feet tall. Plant and harvest standing up.
Healthy & Safe: Made of a heavy-duty plastic that’s BPA free, which means no concerns about adding toxins to your organic plants.
Algae Resistant: Anti-oxidant and UV reduction elements help reduce algae formation.
Automatic Rotation: Growing pods rest on ball bearings allowing them to rotate easily for optimum light exposure (rotate either manually or automatically with the optional drive system).
NOTE: Hydroponic systems like this one require that plant nutrients be added to the water, and that salt levels and pH levels are monitored and managed.
Rotational motor: The rotational motor attaches to the base of your tower and rotates the growing pods for improved light exposure (four revolutions per hour). Recommended for indoor use only, as the motor component is not water proof.
Hydroponic Starter Kit:We advise the purchase of the Hydroponic Starter Kit with your first system. This kit includes the nutrients and tools you need to get started; includes two quarts of Botanicare liquid nutrients, a Total Dissolvable Salts (TDS) meter, and a pH control kit.
T5 Vertical Lighting: The Foody 8 works best on decks or patios with good light exposure. If growing indoors in a poorly lit area, use a T5 Vertical Lighting System.
Plant Starter Plugs: We recommend using Rapid Rooter Starter Plugs if you plan to start your plants from seeds. These plugs are easy to transplant into your pods once the plant has developed good roots.
NOTE: This system does not include the clay pebbles growing medium, which can be purchased separately online or at your local home & garden store. We recommend a 10 liter bag, which will completely fill the tower.
