Cultivation System
Low Tech. High Productivity.

The cost-effective vertical growing system that is created for urban farmers, by urban farmers.

InstaGreen cultivation system

The InstaGreen cultivation system:
Grow with a low-tech, scalable design.

At InstaGreen we have spent years hacking indoor farming, testing and building efficient growing methods. Instead of going high-tech and focussing on ‘apps’ that nobody uses, we built a low-tech system for ourselves. A system that can meet the biggest challenge in urban agriculture: how to grow cost-effictively in relatively small indoor spaces in urban areas. It’s a no-fuss, easy-to-use and cost effective system that is developed and used at the InstaGreen.eu urban farm in Barcelona. Designed for adjustability, scalability and cost-effective growth.

That's what we call smart watering !

No-fuss: Low-tech, because that just works perfect.

No, we didn’t ‘build an app for that‘. Plants grow perfectly without an app. 😉

What we díd build, is a vertical cultivation system that uses our low-tech ‘smart-trays’, watering slides and natural phenomena, such as capilarity and gravity, to get water, oxygen and nutrients to the growing greens.
(Read more on why we believe in low-tech solutions).

The only ‘tech’ you need

The module only uses tech components where needed. Such as the LED’s that are used to get the right amount of light to the growing microgreens.  And a pump that automatically waters the plants, so you can do more important stuff. (Such as building your business or enjoy time out.)

Adaptability and scalability ensured with the InstaGreen cultivation systems

Adjustable to your needs.

The module is easily mountable and adjustable. This allows you to later place add-ons for different plants, or have different sized modules to easily fit inside your growing space.

You can also grow in different formats. Either you provide living microrgeens in our biodegradable cups and organic substrate, or you can grow entire trays full of microgreens that you can freshly cut. You can even start to grow larger plants, using just a couple of add-ons.

Easy scale up

Everything we use, from the smart-trays, the biodegradable cups, to the slides, the cultivator and the germinator system, they all fit perfectly together. This allows you to scale up fast, without the need to switch to another system. Whether you use one module or one hundred, the same design  works.
