‘the fogger’ vertical planting unit by vakant design
general view with a lot of ripe vegetables
based out of hamburg, vakant design has created ‘the fogger’, a highly efficient, vertical planting unit suitable for any
indoor and outdoor applications. users can take pre-germinated fruit or vegetable seedlings, and insert them with
the neoprene plugs into the pillar, where by filling up a tank with water using the included organic fertilizer,
a connected cable to an external power supply initiates automatic cultivation.
for up to six weeks, the plants are self-sufficiently supplied with water and nourishment via fogponic cultivation technique:
generated by an ultrasonic head, the nutrient-rich fog flows around the roots that grow in the inside of the pillar.
in this way, a maximum oxygen supply is provided and the plants’ full growth potential is released. the self-contained
system of the system makes sure that excess water and nutrients will be fed back into the circulation and will not get
lost through seepage or evaporation.
there you can see the connections of all the single components
to have a look inside, you have to take off the lid and wait until the fogg is gone
take off the chosen ceramic element to inspect the roots
the lid also can be used as a harvest bowl
refill the nutrient solution every four weeks
