  • Publication number: 20190335691
    Abstract: The present invention provides an aeroponic plant growing system with improvement in efficiency, performance, and ease of maintenance. In an embodiment of the present invention, the aeroponic system comprises multiple aeroponic units and water cycle components, LED lights, sensors, and control components to support and operate the aeroponic units. Each aeroponic unit comprises a drainage tank to catch water, manifolds and spray nozzles to irrigate the plant clones, and one or more rooting trays. The rooting tray comprises rooting tubes extended from the apertures in which the plant clones are inserted. The rooting tubes are shaped and arranged in a manner such that a rooting tube shares its walls with its neighboring rooting tubes. In one embodiment, the cross section of a rooting tube is shaped as a hexagon with equal sides and multiple rooting tubes are arranged into a honeycomb structure.

  • Publication number: 20190230869
    Abstract: The present invention provides a system for transporting plant clones that have developed root systems outside solid cultivating media. The transporting system comprises stem collars that hold plant clones. The stem collars are made of biodegradable materials so that plant clones can be transplanted to the field with the collars. The plant clone transporting system also comprises a collar tray to hold stem collars and a portable tank to hold water or solid media that holds water, such as rockwool and perlite, to provide favorable conditions to the root systems of the plant clones, so they can survive a long transportation.

  • Publication number: 20180325055
    Abstract: The objective of the present invention to provide an aeroponic plant growing system with improvement in efficiency and performance. In one aspect of the present invention, a water pump located outside of the aeroponic container is used to propel the liquid cycling throughout the system. Another aspect of the present invention is the design of planting trays that are detachable, portable, and enabling higher planting density by using rooting tubes that prevent the roots of neighboring plants from merging with each other. The rooting tubes are also designed to optimize mist exposure of the roots while providing effective root separation.
