Dealzer >> Buddha Box - 48 Plant Hydroponics Grow Tent

buddha box 5 x 5 grow tent diagramVerticalPonics is experiencing a massive explosion in popularity and it is easy to see why.If you have never seen a vertical cannabis garden then you’re missing out. Plants don’t necessarily grow upwards, they grow towards the light. By mounting 2 X 400W HPS grow lamps vertically in the middle of the grow tent it is possible to create a wall of green around it, with plants growing at angles away from their vertical framework and towards the light. This means that you can fit more than 48 plants at up to 3 feet tall in a grow tent that is only 5’ X 5’ - turning a growing area of just 25 square feet into a growing area of 96 square feet!

There are actually 60 plant sites in this system, although some companies only count it at 48, we assume this is because they don’t all count the corner sites as useable.

Hydroponic system – How does it work?

Whether you purchase from SuperCloset or Dealzer, the Buddha Box 5’ X 5’ Vertical Grow Tent Kit comes with a SuperPonics VerticalPonic hydroponic system. This 48 plant system is, like all SuperPonics systems, a fusion of more than one hydroponic system. By combining systems it is possible to dramatically increase yields.This system is a fusion of ebb and flow and aeroponics systems. How this works is that the plants’ roots are suspended in a perpetual mist of nutrient solution, allowing them to be exposed to lots of oxygen. Regular, timed floods of nutrient rich solution then periodically cover the roots. This method allows the plants to use the nutrients in the solution in a highly efficient way and results in explosive growth and massive yields.Buddha Box 5 x 5 VerticalPonics SystemBuddha Box 5 x 5 VerticalPonics System with Plants
