Hydro Masta installs Hydroponic Growroom at Kings School, Sydney

Hydro Masta is currently installing an indoor hydroponic system for Kings School, Parramatta. It is stage one of an integrated system which will later include an aquaponic system to grow freshwater fish.

Instead of traditional HID lighting (High Intenstiy Discharge), which produces a strong white light suitable for plants, Hydro Masta is installing modern LED lights (Light Emitting Diodes). These are specially selected LEDs in the blue and red spectrum which plants use to photosynthesise and unlike HID lamps, do not produce much waste heat. The increase in efficiency of these lights is well worth the higher cost, as LED lamps have a fully rated lifespan of 50,000 hours.

Here we are using the LEDmasta 600 units, which have a total of 32 individual 3 Watt LEDs. This unit effectively replaces a 600 Watt HID lamp, runs more cheaply and does not produce any unused light frequencies for plant growth.

Green Wall of living lettuce

A Green Wall of lettuce at Sydney's SumoSalad

A living "green wall" of fresh lettuce now greets the customers at Sydney's CBD SumoSalad.

Fresh hydroponic lettuce meet the eye and the pallette in Sydney's very popular salad bar,and Hydro Masta was happy to show off the living produce!

Green Living Wall

The herb window box shown above, is fed in a similar fashion, however this system also has a level indicator so the client can monitor when watering is required.
Green Living Wall

In the same store, Hydro Masta has designed another living wall incorporating hydroponic channel built into wooden pallets which we built especially for this project.

Fresh herbs, which sit inside the hidden hydroponic channel, use natural capillary action to draw up the water containing a slow release fertiliser. Lighting is provided by special LED grow light strips with both blue and red frequency lights plus natural white ones for a more 'natural' appearance.

So when you sit down to eat at the Crown Street's Sumo Salad you can see these herbs growing on the wall: sorel, mint, parsley, oregeno, rosemary, thyme, and rocket. Over coming months more stores here in NSW and QLD will have their own living walls.

Starting in 2010 Hydro Masta began a new commercial hydroponic venture for a forward looking publicly listed company in PNG to supply fresh salad greens for their supermarket chain. (See the videos here) Hydro Masta Hydroponic installation in PNG

The first stage is a 24 bench NFT system, initially for lettuce, with a capacity of 4,000 plants. Later expansions will see a wide variety of salad greens and herbs grown on their site in Port Moresby, picked and packed fresh for daily distribution to their stores.

In 2013 Hydro Masta installed a 12,000 plant site hydroponic lettuce farm at Port Stephens...watch the progress

The Hydro Masta online Library is a resource for the education and training of the hydroponic growers of tomorrow.

Using the links above, growers of hydroponic herbs, strawberries, vegetables or flowers can find useful information on techniques such as NFT (Nutrient Film Technique) and flood and drain, and all aspects of environment control from airflow and carbon dioxide enhancement through to optimal tank operation.


Growing our own food with hydroponics, and aquaponics by incorporating fish into the system, are the future, and all it takes is a balcony or a few square metres. A constant supply of fresh nutritious food is easily available in a little space and with only a little physical effort.
