Gardening is one of the most productive activities one can enjoy during leisure moments and lucky are those who have lots of open space for that. Indoor gardens are getting popular as outdoor space is scarce in populated urban cities. Using current hydroponics technology, the Auxano concept was designed to enable city dwellers to grow their own produce effectively and efficiently (and without mess!)within the space constraints of city living. This has been achieved through the growing units being window/wall mounted. Its innovative oxygenating pump system means no electricity is needed for the product to operate. [source]
The root cradle slides out of the top making the harvesting of the vegetable or herb an easy process. This bottom section unscrews revealing the nutrient reservoir. Feeding the plant from underneath the product makes the process more efficient and mess free. The nutrient solution needs to remain oxygenated to prevent it from stagnating. The user simply pushes the underlying rubber pump a few times a day releasing bursts of oxygen into the nutrient tank above. Operating the airflow manually enhances the user interaction with the product and also removes the need to introduce electricity to keep the nutrient solution aerated; in turn further enhancing the products green credentials.
