GyroCup's work with ultra low cost sustainable alternatives such as Agar and Alginate gels, omitting the need for expensive sustainable alternatives

We produce a range of sizes to suit a variety of Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) & Vertical Farming (VF) Technologies

5 reasons to use our technology

#1 REUSABLE 

 

We have developed the worlds first reusable grow plug, which requires less substrate and can be reused 1000's of times.

Substrate - such as agar/alginate

Simply 'pop' the cup, add a small amount of substrate with seeds and watch them grow!

#2 EASY TO CLEAN

Although traditional substrates can be used, GyroCup works well with ultra low cost substrates such as Agar and Alginate gels, which create a clean farm environment  

 

Our unique silicon formula creates a surface texture easy to clean in standard CEA/VF washers. It's robust and non-reactive formula allows it to be washed 1000's time without damage or degradation, even when using oxidising agents.

#3 SAY GOODBYE TO MOULD & ALGAE

 

The silicon anti-bacterial surface prevents bacteria and other microorganisms  growing on the surface, a common issue with single use substrates and plastic net pots.

#4 LESS MESSY SUBSTRATE & NO PLASTIC NET CUPS

 

Reduce your costs with using up to 95% less substrate. 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.

#5 PLANT STABILITY

GyroCups "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 length of the tentacles to suit the plant you are growing. In fact, we can adjust our design to create a bespoke design suited for your growing needs and growing technology.
