Phototron Holdings, Inc. to Unveil New Product Line at High Times 2011 Medical Cannabis Cup

New Indoor Grow Units up for Best New Product Award

WOODLAND HILLS, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 23, 2011) - Phototron Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: PHOT) (OTCQB: PHOT), the designer, manufacturer and seller of the PHOTOTRON Hydroponic Indoor Grow System, today announced that it will unveil its new Phototron product line at the 2011 Medical Cannabis Cup San Francisco, June 25 and 26 at the Concourse Exhibition Center sponsored by High Times Magazine. In addition, the new Phototron products will be judged in the Best New Product category at the conference.

"Phototron has been offering the Phototron Original and Tall to the home grower for nearly 20 years with very few modifications. We've taken advantage of all the technological advances over the past two decades and created the new Phototron models resulting in faster growth and heartier plants," said Craig Ellins, Phototron Holdings, Inc.'s Chairman of the Board.

Further setting the new Phototron units apart is the addition of a built-in ECObrain that automatically monitors temperature, humidity, water levels, and turns on and off the lights. The units also contain a carbon filter for removing unwanted organic odors. Crops can grow unattended for approximately two weeks if accompanied with Phototron's Feed-A-Tron Automated Watering System, which holds up to eight gallons of water and nutrients.

The new Phototron models resolve the complicated assembly and high costs associated with hydroponic growing. Assembled in the USA as turnkey controlled agricultural growing units, all a grower needs to do is plug it in, plant their seeds, and add water and nutrients. The entire set up process takes less than one hour.

"Growing in the Phototron alleviates a lot of hassles and delivers high yield in less than four square feet of floor space. It's the perfect growing solution for people who want to start a hydroponic garden or live in condos and apartments," said Ellins.
