about us

Inside the ECOSYSTEM, rockwool slabs are hung vertically. Nutrient solution is periodically pumped from an internai reservoir into drippers positioned at the top of each slab. Gravity then pulls the nutrient solution through the length of the slab; any run off simply drips back into the internal reservoir below. ECOSYSTEM is designed to be clean, space and energy efficient, high yielding and perfect for any hobby gardener.

The ECOSYSTEM gives advantage to gardeners who are concerned about energy conservation or have limited space for a garden. The space advantages are obvious but the conservation of electricity is equally impressive. The ECOSYSTEM uses 2 bulbs: we recommend 2 lamps at 600W but 750W or 1000W work very well. Because of the small size of the ECOSYSTEM, each plant receives the benefit of both bulbs. The proximity of the bulbs also means very little of the bulbs' power is being lost. The risk of burning the plants with too much light is next to nothing. One reason for this is that no reflectors are used. This reduces hot spots and gives perfect light distribution. The other reason is the incredible air exchange rates that will not allow heat to build up in the ECOSYSTEM. The intense Iight and massive air exchange rates create an environment that produces fruits and flowers of the highest quality, and yields per watt/time that will exceed even the best horizontal gardener.

Of course there are some things that should be taken into account when growing in such a smail environment :

  1. Plants variety: Grow plants that naturally stay short. For example, do not try Beefsteak tomatoes, rather grow Cherry tomatoes.
  2. Heat: Plants stretch in hot environments. Try to keep the garden around 26.7°C (80°F).
  3. Grow: if vou are growing plants that have specific vegetative and flowering cycles be careful not to over vegetate; five to six inches under vegetative light conditions and then change to flowering, would be best.
  4. Nutrient solution: Use a nutrient specially designed for re-cirrculating systems that helps hold the pH steady and contributes to keeping the ECOSYSTEM clean.
