Product Details

This template gives you several different layouts for your GroTower, each one aligned to ensure each GroPocket gets good water flow from the sprinkler.

GroPockets are used to turn 100mm (4") PVC pipe into the ideal vertical growing system, a GroTower. Just drill the appropriate holes in the pipe, using the drilling template, and glue the GroPockets over them. Once dried, simply place your mini slotted pots (net pots) in the GroPockets to hold the plant crowns above the wet root zone. A special low-volume sprinkler distributes the nutrient-rich water from your aquaponic system down the inside of the pipe, giving your plant roots a constant supply.

The GroTower has no media in it, making it easy to harvest your plants - just lift the net pots out of the GroPockets. No tangled roots. This design facilitates the lowest operating cost of any vertical growing system. Commercial aquaponics growers can now have the advantages of higher plant densities in greenhouses with low labour cost.
