A schematic of the three level Bio-Incubator™illustrates the key processes taking place in the bioponic Food Plant grow module.
The design supports common soilless techniques of flood and drain and deep water raft culture. NFT nutrient film technique can also be done, but preferably on the mid level. Upper beds as media filled biofilters are recommended for all configurations to ensures the biological and mechanical filtration of ammonia eliminnating need for separate filtration devices. The unique all in-one-system purifies water and produces plant-ready nitrogen for all levels.
Plants from the raft -IIncubator level are encouraged to grow out from the trough and down, to collect sunlight in a vertical fashion, like an upside down tomato plant might grow. The maximizes space use and increases sun exposure.
