The Amazon is the ultimate system for the experienced grower looking for huge yields.
Our yield: 7ft of growth in 5 weeks and 1,100 chillies from one system!
The Amazon is the highest-yielding growing system and it offers the exceptional root development of an aeroponic cloner throughout the full lifecycle!
Unrivalled oxygen access – In the Amazon plant roots are suspended in a misting chamber where they have unrestricted access to oxygen, nutrients and water. No other method of growing offers roots so much access to oxygen.
Expertly engineered – The mist mechanism has been expertly engineered to provide a perfect balance of oxygen and nutrient solution without the need for a high pressure pump and the misters are built to last.
Practical – Easy access to root chamber for inspection and maintenance
Zero waste – the only growing medium used is the medium that the plants are started in or, if transplanting from an X-Stream, no medium at all.
Practical – easy access to root chamber for inspection and maintenance.
Performance – incredible speed of growth and the biggest yields.
The Amazon enables virtually 100% of the roots to be exposed to oxygen virtually 100% of the time – as oxygen is so important for root growth, plant health and yield size it’s no surprise that the Amazon produces the bigget yields.
Young plants or rooted cuttings are placed in mesh pots and hang down into the Amazon’s misting chamber that sits on top of a nutrient solution tank. The roots are constantly misted with nutrient solution.
We spent many years developing the misting mechanism so that the water droplet size is perfect. Too large a water droplet means less oxygen is available to the root system. Too fine a water droplet produces excessive root hairs and not enough lateral root system.
The fact that the misting chamber is so oxygen-rich also means that disease is prevented (because most root diseases can’t survive in such conditions) so large numbers of plants can be grown in smaller spaces without the risk of disease.
Questions & Answers
Essential: Leave the pump on 24/7.
Use the clone collars supplied to block holes that you do not want to use and place the plants out in the desired positions.
Young plants started in 1” rockwool SBS cubes or Jiffy C’s can be transplanted into an Amazon. Like NFT, they must be root bound before they go into the system.
If you don’t want to use clone collars in the Amazon place a square of Black and White sheeting around the base of the plant to prevent light from entering the root chamber.
