About

The aponix vertical barrel system extends the de-facto standards of soil- less plant cultivation from the horizontal plane into the 3rd dimension at professional standards. Unlike the other 2D methods like NFT (nutrient film technique) and DWC (deep water culture) no fixed elements are required to set up a farming plot. Usually vertical farming operations that like to increase plant density per sqm start to erect rack structures that cause all sorts of challenges and eventually make urban micro farming expensive and complicated. The goal of the aponix vertical system is to enable professional vertical urban micro-farming with high plant density per sqm compared to their horizontal plane counterparts and also other standard vertical solutions (e.g. grow towers). Plant density is defined by position, the number and the height of the vertical barrels used. Everything is modular and movable. Plant density >60 plants per sqm. Essentially vertical barrels are assembled by 1 central lego-like piece. The main types of crop to be grown with the soil-less adapter piece for standard two 2-inch net pots are: herbs and lettuce varieties, small or leafy vegetable plants, berries or dwarf vegetables.
