The Flex Farm
Hydroponics is the practice of growing plants in a growing medium with a nutrient solution. It allows you to grow plants indoors, allowing you to grow year round, and it minimizes exposure to environmental damage, disease and insects. Liquid nutrients enable the plants to spend less time extracting food from soil and more time growing great big delicious leaves and fruit.
Our hydroponic grow machine produces more and costs less to run. It is environmental friendly. We include growing medium, a light source, and pump with the machine. All you need to do is final assembly, add germinated plugs, and add water and nutrients. Start with one tier and add up to two more to each machine – each tier contains 144 plugs. It takes around two weeks to germinate your seeds, then you add the germinated plugs to the machine. In around another two to three weeks, your crop will be ready to harvest. The actual time will depend on the crop and your specific environment. With three tiers, you can grow approximately 7,500 to 11,000 individual plants in a year.
Lettuce, Spinach, Peppers and More
Our grow machine excels at growing leafy greens, such as lettuces, kale, chard, and annual herbs. But you can use the machine to grow almost any annual fruit or vegetable that can grow in a confined space. You can even grow annual flowers. Different plants may require different configurations of the machine, and we encourage you to experiment.
The Fork Farms grow machine brings hydroponic growing to a new level of efficiency. Our patented technology grows volumes more crop for the dollar. Compared to conventional farming, our grow machines use 97% less water, 67% less electricity and 39% less fertilizer. Because you need almost no land, you can grow anywhere, reducing the number of miles your food has to travel to get to your table.
