Vert-Gro Vertical Growing SystemDid you know that Verti-Gro coined the phrases “Vertical Gardening” and “Vertical Growing”?  For over 19 years this innovative company has been recognized as a leader in commercial, research facilities and residential garden systems.   Vertical growing is simply just that vertical growing.   The Verti-Gro systems using a stacked system that has a plastic pipe in the center that screws into an electrical submersible water pump mounted in the base tank.   Nutrient medium is pumped from the holding tank in the bottom via the pipe to the top so it can sprayed out using a bubbler cap screwed on to the pipe at the top.  The nutrient medium then sprays out the bubbler on to the top stack pot, then draining via holes cut into bottom of each stack pot – eventually returning to tank at the bottom.   Since everything is stacked you use less space for plants and production.  Verti-Gro  VG-1 Stackable Vertical Garden, comes with everything you will need to get started to hydroponically grow 20 plants.

Growing Medium

Coarse Perlite Growing Medium

While I have tried the Coconut Coir with Perlite for a growing medium, I have found that Coarse Perlite medium to work the best for drainage and ease of care.   Don’t let this stop you from experimenting with different types of medium, just keep in mind whatever you use, must be able to drain quickly or you will see your nutrient solution spill out and over on to the ground.   (I speak from sad experience).

Plants To Grow

    • About 15 – 20 minutes – it took longer to go to the local Lowe’s store to get the starter plants and you wash their roots off. These units have worded extremely well especially for Kale and tomatoes. Thanks for dropping by, come again.
