1) Assembly – Full ring segments always consist of 6 pieces. In order to assemble these pieces, please keep in mind that the goal is to build full ring segment that we like to stack into our vertical barrel later. You will have a hard time or even break connections if pieces are not aligned.
2) This is how the alignment would look like on the assembly. We are building a full horizontal ring segment (a full circle). It works the same way for the assembly of all other available ‘grow adapter’ pieces. All pieces are interchangeable, so you can configure the barrel surface for individual plant spacing.
3) Assembly – Use your thumbs in front of your belly and push until you hear the click. Proceed with all 6 pieces you intend to assemble and close the ring segment also with a click the same way.
4) Disassembly – If you like to disassemble the individual pieces, grab them like shown in front of your belly. Hands pull back, belly pushes against. Note: You do not need to disassemble fully assembled ring segments for cleaning! Please check the maintenance info on how to clean after a growing cycle.
(2018-03): Rolling metal base for closed stand, welding/building plan.
Until we can provide this important part ourselves, here is the building plan to set up a perfectly fitting triangle roller base for yourself. It consists of 3 simple standard rectangular metal parts welded together and it fits under our closed base – usable for substrate based and soils standalone setups.
