Default Which grow medium to be used in NFT Hydroponics?

Hello everyone,

I have setup a NFT system to grow about 25-30 plants. I have purchased seedlings for tomatoes, capsicum and cabbage.
I want to know which is the best medium I can use in NFT system

1. Clay pebbles in netpots
2. Cocopeat in net pots
3. Rockwool cubes in net pots

Hello simarkohli,
I would use coco fiber, (not cocopeat), But tomatoes, capsicum and cabbage will all quickly outgrow a NFT system. You may be able to do OK with the cabbage if you harvest them before they mature, but will outgrow the NFT system before they mature. The tomatoes and capsicum will out grow the NFT system before you ever harvest anything from them.
