GyroCup - the sustainable growing cup solution for Indoor Farming
Our technology GyroCup enables waste free and clean indoor farming
GyroCup replaces single-use substrates and plastic net pots, requiring only a small amount of substrate or gel to work - often called Gelponics.
GyroCup enhances root growth for leafy and root vegetables and is environmentally-friendly compared to traditional single-use substrates

GyroCup works with ultra low-cost sustainable alternatives such as Agar and Hydrogels - eliminating the need for expensive sustainable alternatives.
We produce two standardized product sizes and also offer custom sizes to suit a variety of Controlled Environment Agriculture and Vertical Farming set-ups.
5 reasons to use our technology
Avoid the skyrocketing costs of single-use substrates. With just few drops of gel, grow more and better quality fresh food food waste free!
Simply 'pop' the cup, add the gel and seed to grow in NFT, DWC and Aeroponic systems
#CLEAN & FOOD SAFE
Although traditional substrates can be used, GyroCup works well with ultra-low cost gels such as Agar and Alginate gels, which create a clean farm environment. Potentially an easy way to pass food safety standards for vertical farms.
Our unique silicone formula creates a surface texture and is easy to clean. Its robust and non-reactive formula allows it to be washed 100s of times without damage or degradation, even when using oxidising agents.
#3 SAY GOODBYE TO MOULD, ALGAE and PESTS
GyroCup’s antibacterial surface prevents bacteria and other microorganisms from growing on the surface - a common issue with single-use substrates and plastic net pots. Single-use substrate is also a hive for bugs to grow, especially PEAT substrates. Reduce pests with GyroCup
#4 LESS MESSY, WASTEFUL SUBSTRATE
Reduce your costs by using no increasing expensive substrates. No more worrying about volatile substrate supply chains, material handling, excessive cleaning, or substrate waste costs. And no more hard to clean plastic net pots which degrade over time and have to be replaced.
Single-use substrates cost more in energy to heat up, and also soaks up valuable nutrients only to be thrown away, wasting expensive nutrients
#5 PLANT GROWTH
GyroCup's "tentacles" support root development and help stabilises the plant. In fact, our trials show that root length increases by up to 50% post germination.
Depending on your application, we can adjust the design to create a bespoke product suited to your growing needs and growing technology.
