Welcome To Hydroponics
However, we think that once you learn a little more about hydroponics, vertical farming, and our processes, you’ll find our technology and approach is a lot more straightforward than it may seem.
Come on a journey of growth with us…
What does it take to grow beautiful, healthy plants indoors?
Every single one of our growing systems utilizes hydroponic technology - but what exactly does this mean? And why is this the ideal way for you to grow fresh, nutritious produce inside your own home?
📚 Basics of Hydroponics
Ok so what the heck are hydroponics?
Therefore, many hydroponic systems rely on a man-made irrigation system to give the plants the water they so dearly crave.
Our grow walls and farms provide water directly to the plants via an irrigation system that is attached to either the plumbing of your premises, or in a cabinet below the garden. The water is fed through the gardens via a pre-set timed pump that gives the plants the perfect amount of water where and when they need it.
One enormous benefit of hydroponic growing is that plants only take the water and nutrients that they need at any given time. Call it the ultimate democratic system.
The outcome of this this is that the remaining water is returned unused to the original water source. This, in turn, creates an extremely efficient growing process, effectively eliminating water wastage (which is extremely common in traditional agriculture). In fact, growing hydroponically can save 95% of water when compared to traditional growing methods.
Intro to nutrients
Thankfully, many smart plant scientists have developed perfectly mixed nutrient solutions ideal for growing when nutrients aren't available in the growing medium. In all our gardens, adding nutrients is as simple as pouring a small amount of the solutions in the water source, which is then diluted and moved through the gardens.
Our pumps circulate the nutrients directly to the root systems of the plants, along with the water, and the plants take whatever they need to grow healthy and full.
How nutritious is it growing without soil?
There is a misconception that hydroponics isn't as flavourful or nutritious as growing in soil.
In terms of nutrition, nothing is more nutritious than freshly picked produce, whether it be soil-grown, hydroponically-grown, or grown through any other method (i.e. aeroponics).
Growing and buying local (whether that's in your kitchen with an AEVA or EVE, in your garden, or at your local farmers market) is going to be the most nutritious food you can get.
Built-in LED lights
All our gardens come with pre-fitted, highly-efficient, full-spectrum LED lights.
Different plants require different light cycles. Our gardens include light timers that keep your plants lights on an automatic schedule. Never worry about turning your lights on and off. Your plants will always get the amount of light that they want and need.
🏠 Indoor Growing and Urban Agriculture
What is indoor growing?
Traditional outdoor farming is reliant on the seasons and weather. Traditional outdoor agriculture also has lower crop yields in comparison to industrial vertical farms. It also is an inefficient use of space.
New methods of farming indoors, and in particular vertical indoor farming, helps alleviate the issues mentioned above. Most importantly, it utilizes an enormous amount of otherwise unproductive space in ever dense cities and urban areas.
What is urban agriculture?
Put simply, it’s about being able to produce food within the limits of urban areas like dense cities or suburbs. Urban farming is an alternative way of growing that differs from traditional agricultural practices by utilizing vast areas with inadequate farmland.
