PLANT STABILITY

GrowCups's "tentacles" support root development and help stabilises the plant. 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

OUR STORY

VERTICAL FARMING UK PARTNER GROWCUP
SEEDLING VERTICAL FARMING CEA HYDROPONICS AEROPONICS

The GyroPlant GrowCup replaces growing media/substrates used in indoor farming. It's a simple, affordable and reusable product developing seeds from germination to harvest 

Currently, substrates present a major barrier for sustainability in indoor farming

With the new GyroPlant GrowCup, no more expensive growing substrate, no more mouldy media, no more throw away plastic or rock wool, and less damage to the natural environment

Through rigorous designing and testing at our R&D testing facility, our Patent Pending GyroPlant GrowCup can be tailored to your vertical farming technology and needs

GROWCUP SILICON REUSABLE PAK CHOI GYROPLANT GROWCUP SUSTAINABLE SUBSTRATE

ANTI-BACTERIAL

Our rubber protects against bacterial growth - a core issue with single use natural and synthetic growing substrates

ANTI-STATIC

Anti-static assists automated seeding, preventing loss of seeds

FLEXIBLE COLOUR

We can can make GrowCup in any colour,  to suit your testing and farms needs

FOOD GRADE SILICON

Our silicon rubber is food grade, unlike many plastics currently used in vertical farming processes. It's not only food safe, but will reduce plastic use in indoor farming and waste

WEAR RESISTANT

The premium food grade silicon rubber we use is very robust

WASHABLE

GrowCup can withstand high temperatures without degrading up 150 degrees

NON-REACTIVE

GrowCup silicon is non reactive to oxidising agents such as hydrogen peroxide, common cleaning agents in CEA and Vertical farming
