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.

A Green Wall of Herbs at SumoSalad in Sydney

Green Wall of living herbs

A living "green wall" of fresh herbs now greets the customers at Sydney's CBD store in the MLC building at Martin Place. Fresh hydroponic produce meets the eye and the pallette in Sydney's very popular food court, and Hydro Masta built what is possibly the first of its kind!

Green Wall of living herbs

From the wall to your plate!

Four metres long and four levels high, a total of 256 plants are fed with a fully automated hydroponic dosing system. 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 during business hours. Staff can pick herbs fresh from the wall.

The photo above was taken as we first planted out the front section in a staggered cropping, and in a few short weeks the entire system will be big and lush!

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.
