Ecuador – Agua, Vida y Naturaleza

On January 3th 2012, the projects Agua, Vida y Naturaleza had started in Ecuador. This project was financed by the Dutch COmON Foundation. During this project, we had planted trees and vegetables. The vegetables were planted in the Groasis Climate Control House. In the Groasis Climate Control House, the humidity was high enough for the plants and the temperature was constant.

Galapagos Islands – Charles Darwin Foundation

There are many rare and unique plant- and animal species on the Galapagos Islands. By man, a number of these plant- and animal species has gone extinct.

Kuwait – Kuwait Oasis

Humidity of 35%, temperatures that rose to 50⁰C and no precipitation in the summer. It is almost impossible to plant trees and shrubs here. But, Groasis has achieved the impossible. During the summer of 2012, Kuwait Oasis has planted Ghaf trees with the Waterboxx® plant cocoon. The Waterboxx® plant cocoon was refilled 3 times. During the plantation, and 4 months later.

Spain – Microclimate in the Waterboxx® plant cocoon

The Waterboxx® plant cocoon has a positive effect on the young tree, shrub or vegetable. The plant doesn’t only receive water from the Waterboxx® plant cocoon, but the Waterboxx® plant cocoon ensures a constant temperature underneath the box and gives the plant more rest during the growth.
