Aponix provides components to set up urban farming grow spaces in a modular and versatile way, enabling more hyperlocal plant production in 3D.
The following solutions have been designed so far: the Vertical Barrel / 3D-NFT for soilless cultivation, a modular living WallSystem, the Substrate Barrel and a very robust City XL Barrel. New: Young Plant Tray Set.
Our components are all robust horticulture building blocks for any production activities including prosumer solutions made in Germany enabling users to set up hydroponic or substrate based grow spaces efficiently within 3-dimensional space for their creative urban plant solutions – edible and ornamental – indoor and outdoor – for production or display.
Grow space setup
The aponix vertical barrel incorporates a bunch of valuable key features that allow for a very versatile setup of a new type of urban farms with much smaller 2D footprint than their traditional commercial counterparts urban locations, for outdoor and indoor farming. The aponix barrel is designed to allow you to quickly grow a hydroponic garden. Elements are all robust and made in Germany.
New: Young Plant Tray SetYoung plant production is always a challenge in urban farming if you do not have access to a greenhouse or a flood table. Here is our new and very versatile and robust Tray Set for Microgreens, substrate bound and soilless young plants.
Version 3 Aponix Ring Segment Element3 years packed with feedback and ambitious feature requests from active users have now been baked into a universal V3 ring segment piece that has been extended by even more backwards compatible components. Find out more on our product page.
Living WallSystemWalls and fences are still underutilized to grow more plants in the urban area. Aponix has designed a modular and maintainable solution for indoor and outdoor setups with many important properties that most other living wall systems do not provide.
Reusable Trellis Plugpot – 2inch/5cmAponix replaces single use plastic netpots with a robust and re-usable young plant plug pot. It provides an optional metal plant trellis insert to grow larger plants like cannabis or dwarf fruiting crops and can be used to use young plants grown in glued or alternative substrate plugs. Diameter is 2 inches/5cm so it can be used in any hydroponic system that used 5cm holes.
Unused Grow Space Cover – 2inch/5cmSometimes we need to just leave some space between plants, plan to grow larger crop or don’t have enough seedlings. There is a cover coming that will work on the 2″/5cm soilless grow spaces.
Sprinkler Dome Lid for robust Precision IrrigationCollecting feedback for the V3 design also led to the creation of a new dedicated sprinkler lid that is more robust using different sprinkler models. Its shape makes it impossible to hit any critical areas and makes sure we have perfectly even distribution of nutrient solution.
Netafim-aponix Drip Stop AdapterThere are multiple irrigation options. This is one of them: Using our Netafim-aponix adapter you can use Netafim micro nozzle equipment to organize the irrigation of your vertical barrels. Netafim provides plug-and-play components so you can adjust for different flow rates and spraying patterns.
Lid-base for Multiple Vertical Barrel SetupsLooking for a solution to make units rotate we designed the lid-base in a cooperation with a product partner. It can be used on top of a standard 40mm PVC drining pipe to set up multiple units in rows. At the same time all pieces that need to be sanitized (including the 2nd bottom lid) can be removed for cleaning.
Aponix is Looking for Product PartnersAponix strategy is to work with product partners who like to design their own unique solutions based on aponix components adding other elements and/or service merketing them independently under their own brand/product name in their territories. Interestinggly these co-operations already resulted in new components and value for actual users worldwide.
