Hydroponics is the practice of growing plantswithout soil, via the use of a mineral and nutrient rich water solutioninstead, which enables plants to be grown indoors. In order to compensate for thelack of natural sunlight, grow lamps are typically used to synthesise thephotosynthesis process that all plants go through.
The lamps usedin your hydroponics set-up will generate a fair amount of heat, so it’simportant to ventilate the space in order to prevent fires from occurring. Our ventilation ducting kits are designed to beused with your hydroponics equipment,allowing you to maintain a safe operation and prevent your plants from undueharm.
