Questions and Answers (6)Is the intermediate grow tent too small for this kit?You will be able to use the NFT205GTi in this tent, you will also need to use an extraction kit to help manage the temperature. Extraction kit 1 will be fine for this setup.
Written by BF | 7 Jun 2014can you add a air pump to the resouvoir on this system to aerate roots and is it possible to do so on nft's and does it improve air supply to rootsWe have an aeration kit for this NFT system, which will improve air supply to the roots.
Written by MM | 16 Mar 2012Which grow tent would you recommend for this setup to work effectively. Thanks.The best tent for this kit would be the Medium Budbox, as it has the headroom to grow plants to maturity.
Written by Matt | 29 Jan 2012if i bought this kit would i have tp buy anything else to make it smell proof?You would need to also buy an extraction/filtration kit. Our smallest extraction/filtration kit would comfortably work with this setup.
Written by AC | 11 Oct 2011how much water do you use when first filling your reservoir and then on how often do you top up?This system comes with a 20 litre reservoir, we would recommend using 20 litres of quarter strength nutrient solution to start with, & top up with quarter strength as necassary. With a reservoir of this size, we would recommend changing the solution weekly.
Written by NT | 3 Sep 2011if i were to purchase the hobby kit - NFT 250, would there be anything else i needed except the seeds to start my grow?The NFT 250 hobby kit provides everything you need to get growing. You may wish to experiment with flowering boosters such as Vita Link buddy, or Canna PK 13/14 in the flowering cycle, but you will get a result with the standard kit.
