Hydroponics is the growing of plants in a nutrient rich solution with or without an inert medium to provide support. With 50 years of experience here at Miller Plastics we are your one stop shop for your custom Hydroponic systems. We can custom fabricate any type of Hydroponic reservoir tank or any plastic components within the system you are constructing.

AVAILABLE HYDROPONIC SYSTEMS

Benefits and Features

  • Ebb & Flow – Reliable & simple – This system floods the roots and drains the water into a reservoir
  • Drip System – Especially useful for larger plants and has few parts - Emitters drip nutrient water on the plants
  • NFT – Nutrient Film Technique – Used for growing smaller, quick growing plants - Nutrient water is pumped through waterways to the roots of the plants
  • Water Culture System - Mostly used by home growers because it is a very easy to use (can be used for commercial growing also) - Plants are supported and floating while the roots hang under the nutrient water
  • Wick System – Easiest, most basic systems – With no working parts this system is useful in locations where you can’t use electricity - Nutrient water is pulled into the plant roots by a cord.
  • Aeroponics – Uses less water than the other systems & harvesting is usually easier but it is a very detailed system - Plant roots are suspended in the air getting nutrient water lightly sprayed on them at predefined intervals.
