Generated by an ultrasonic head, a nutrient-rich fog flows around the plant roots inside the pillar, delivering oxygen to maximize the plants’ full growth potential. Through the self-contained system, excess water and nutrients are fed back into circulation so they are lost through seepage or evaporation.
How it Works
1. Insert pre-germinated fruit or vegetable seedlings with neoprene plugs into the pillar.
2. Fill up tank with water using the included organic fertilizer.
The Fogger’s cable connects to an external power supply which initiates the automatic cultivation process. The plants receive water and nourishment for up to six weeks via a “fogponic” cultivation technique. The easily installed individual ceramic modules are also simple to maintain as they are dishwasher safe.
Tot slot nog een uitleg van de website van de ontwerpers zelf, waarin zij vertellen waar hun inspiratie vandaan komt en een filmpje waar je de fogger in actie ziet:
Consumers demand more for transparency and information about origin, quality and sustainability in the production chains of their foods. At the same time there is an increasing loss of confidence in the commercial food industries. Many people would like to grow their own vegetables, but most of them don´t have the space or the know-how or they are simply lacking the time for gardening. Moreover, the decentralized cultivation of conventional vegetables and the transportation and packing involved are turning the originally natural good into an environmentally harmful product. The aim of our work was to create a solution that counteracts these problems and enables the consumer to become the producer of his own vegetables.”
