For all of you living in big cities and apartments without gardens and backyards, it’s not impossible to grow your own food. That’s actually the reason why Noocity Growbed was invented. This efficient self-watering and self-fertilizing urban gardening system will allow you to plant fruits, veggies and herbs wherever you want.
Noocity Growbed features an integrated sub-irrigation system that will save water and time you would usually spend watering plants. In fact, it uses up to 80% less water than a regular garden does and is self-sufficient for up to three weeks. Pretty amazing, right? Because it’s developed for urban agriculture you can place it in any type of space.
So, how does the system work? There’s a supply tube where you pour the water. Points of capillarity located at the bottom of Noocity Growbed allow the plants to take the water they need and when they need it. Also a big part of this system is the ventilation area responsible for oxygenation of the root zone. This influences the roots to become stronger and healthier. Check out the video below
If you place it on the rooftop, Noocity Growbed will collect rainwater and gradually fill in the tank. All excess water will drain away through small vents. The air vents have nets on them to prevent insects from getting it.
Noocity Growbed comes in a compact package and you’ll get all the instructions on how to assemble it. Also, you won’t be needing any tools for setting it up and it can be done in less than half an hour. Depending on your needs, you can get Noocity Growbed in three sizes.
