The suitability of media and root-zone volume in a soilless culture system using a combination of sub-irrigation and circulation of nutrient solution were investigated in the 'Muscat of Alexandria' grapevine. The grapevines were planted in three types of containers differing in volume, 70, 100, 200 litres, and filled with either perlite or porous charcoal. The planting containers were individually placed in large trays, and the water level was maintained at a constant level and sub-irrigated.
