Why the Metro-GrowerTM Basic?

The Metro-GrowerTM Basic is a compact, sub-irrigation growing system, watering plants from the bottom up as nature intended. It’s a perfect fit for the gardener with limited space. It can be used almost anywhere – a patio, porch, balcony or backyard. The Metro-GrowerTM Basic will produce bountiful harvests: an early spring planting of peas, a summer collection of lettuce and greens, and a fall harvest of kale or spinach. The instruction manual illustrates how to grow vegetables vertically, including squash cucumbers, beans or peas. It is also ideal for the standards like tomatoes, strawberries, ornamental plants and more.

The Metro-Grower’sTM sub-irrigation watering design waters plants the way nature intended – from the bottom up. A Permanent Airspace is created under the soil separator between the soil above and the water reservoir below. The Permanent Airspace allows the plant roots to safely enter the water in the reservoir. The plant roots pull the water upward thru the Permanent Airspace into the soil above drawing nutrients with it. “A pint of water at the root is worth a GALLON on the soil above,” states Stephen Martin, a garden writer in the UK. The Metro-GrowerTM takes the guesswork out of watering. The exposed water reservoir, only found in the Metro-GrowerTM, is always visible. You can see exactly how much or how little water your particular crops desire. This is a healthy, sustainable way to water your plants. As the water is drawn upward, it delivers essential nutrients to your plants rather than those nutrients being washed away when you water from above.

According to Oregon State University, “Circling roots are common problems in growing containers. Plants have difficulty getting nutrients, shortening plant’s life span.” Roots that are circling inside a growing container are more susceptible to the negative effects of excess heat, drought and
disease. When plant roots in the Metro-GrowerTM are exposed to the Permanent Airspace, “Circling roots are ‘burned’ off or pruned by the air, causing the plant to constantly produce new and highly branched roots,” according to Washington State University. This stimulates further growth of much wanted secondary roots that branch out within the growing medium.

The Metro-GrowerTM Basic is constructed of UV protected food-grade plastic and holds a utility patent making it the only growing container of its type sold today. It is made in America and comes with a 5-year limited warranty.
