• More food with less water

  • According to the UN the world’s population will rise from 7 to 10 billion people while 48 countries are facing serious water scarcity. So, we need more food, but we have less water available. The Growboxx® plant cocoon offers a revolutionary new capacity: you can plant only a tree with it, or you can plant a tree in combination with 4 other plants. The Growboxx® plant cocoon’s water efficiency offers a serious solution for water scarcity: compared to drip irrigation it offers over 90% savings on water use.

What can the Growboxx® plant cocoon do?

The Growboxx® plant cocoon offers the following possibilities:

  1. You can plant a tree only, any species, in any climate, in any soil, or even on rocks;
  2. You can combine the planting of a tree with 4 other plants. The seeds or plants are planted in the 4 plant plugs cones in the cover of the box. At first they grow hydroponically in the water. After 4 to 8 months they penetrate the degrading bottom of the box and establish themselves in the soil;
  3. Combination 1: one productive tree (fruit, timber, oils, medicines, etc.) in combination with 4 vegetables, e.g. tomatoes, cucumber, paprika, eggplant, etc. This way an agricultural family has an income and food, while planting their orchard. Degraded land becomes productive again;
  4. Combination 2: one beautification tree with bedding plants or shrubs for landscaping of urban areas, cities, industrial areas, against heavy pollution or sand storms. Cities can stop using irrigation;
  5. Combination 3: one native tree in combination with 4 native wildflowers and bushes for ecosystem restoration. Through the planting of only 100 boxes with 5 plants, 100 groups of 5 pioneer trees will start to colonize, and after a few years, occupy the whole area. We call this the ‘Groasis auto-reforestation method’. This revolutionary method of ecosystem restoration will lead to cost savings of over 60% compared to traditional methods. Nature recovery on a huge scale is now doable and payable.

Which areas are suitable for planting?

The Growboxx® plant cocoon works along the same principles of the Waterboxx® plant cocoon, but is made from recycled paper pulp and can be used to plant once. The use of paper pulp results in a much lower cost price and offers the grower an affordable and simple plant solution that is especially useful in the following situations:

  • It is possible to plant on sand dunes;
  • It is possible to plant in burned forests;
  • It is possible to plant on rocks and mountains;
  • It is possible to plant in deserts;
  • It is possible to plant in eroded regions;
  • It is possible to reforest many hectares while keeping the costs low – both for the boxes as labor costs.

Of course, the Growboxx® plant cocoon can also be used on fertile land, where generally speaking it leads to quicker growth, increased biomass and even higher survival rates.
