The Walking Plant System is a fully automatic cultivation system, using conveyor belts and gutters. In the Walking Plant System, the cannabis plants are cultivated in gutters on a belt. They are moved using smart shuttles (robots). When filling the gutter, the robot picks up the plants from the main conveyor belt and places them into the designated cutter. Your cannabis plants can be left in the gutters during the entire cultivation period. Spacing of plants is one of the most labor intensive activities in a nursery. The Walking Plant System does this 100% automatically.Therefore, more frequent spacing can be done without extra costs. Leaving you with a plant of higher quality.
Growing plants in gutters makes them more robust and growth rate is increasing due to a good micro-climate.
