Do you grow leafy vegetables or herbs using the hydroponic method? If so, you’ll want to know exactly what you’re putting in your system, and what’s left behind... preferably nothing at all. To prevent your system becoming contaminated, we developed the Growcoon for Hydroponics. This is specially designed for use in wet crops. This Growcoon has a resilient base, so much fewer loose particles end up in the system.
An additional advantage: if a plant extracts nutrients from water, substrate is only needed to bind the root ball. The Growcoon largely takes over this function, allowing you to reduce your substrate consumption by up to 75%. A healthy profit guaranteed!
How you benefit
There is a Growcoon model for every system, including yours, whether it concerns Nutrient Film Technique (NFT) or Deep Flow Technique (DFT). What else can you expect?
- Better root development
- Easy to automate
- No contamination in the cultivation system
- Up to 75% less substrate needed
Cuttings are also easy to pick up mechanically with the Growcoon, without the root ball falling apart and dirt ending up in the machine. That makes it an excellent solution for your automated planting and transplanting processes. We’re continuing to work on further developing this process, in collaboration with various suppliers of technical equipment.
Safe and sustainable
The Growcoon has been awarded the OK Biodegradable Soil and OK Industrial Compost certificate. These certificates guarantee that the Growcoon degrades completely in soil, with no harmful consequences for the environment. The Growcoon is also authorised for use in organic horticulture in a number of countries.
