‘VERTI-GRO’ Vertical Growing
‘VERTI-GRO’ Vertical Growing systems are designed to maximise space – Verti-Gro©, America’s unique hydroponic vertical growing system can accommodate up to six times as many plants in a square area than traditional gravel beds or NFT systems. Verti-Gro© is ideal for those with space constrictions or those with poor soil unsuitable for growing.
What is Verti-Gro©?
Consisting of a US patented design, and manufactured under licence in South Africa, polysterene pots lock into one another to form a stack up to nine pots high. This column can accommodate 36 plants – or more, if they’re smaller herbs.
This intensive hydroponics system includes savings on:
- Land – more plants per square metre than any other system
- Fuel, tractor and labour costs – no tilling and prepping soil for planting
- Fertiliser, lime and insecticide costs
- Plastic and tunnel costs
- Water, via recirculating pump
- Capital, through the re-use of pots.
But that’s not all! The Verti-Gro© vertical growing method offers:
- Faster, easier picking
- Less weeding
- Lower pest and disease infestation, which means higher yields
- Less fruit culling, which means a greater production of perfect fruit.
- Verti-Gro pots are unique for they insulate the plants against cold in winter and heat in summer by 4-5 degrees. This gives the plants a significant advantage over other systems.
