Aerospring: The versatile, vertical garden for everyone

S$ 127,513

139

The Aerospring is a modern, compact vertical aeroponic gardening system that helps you grow up to 27 edible plants at a time using only 10 square feet, or one square meter, of space. It’s a tried and tested outdoor gardening system that has successfully turned many aspiring gardeners into urban farmers.

The Aerospring Indoor Garden kit is the newest addition to the Aerospring family and transforms the system into an all-year garden. It’s a complete indoor gardening system, with professional grade LED grow lights and airflow management in its own honeycomb shaped grow tent, that allows you to grow perfect crop, indoors, all year round.

It's fun for the whole family and a wonderful way to discover the joys of gardening with your children. One of the best ways to know where your food comes from, is to grow your own.

The Aerospring gardening system uses aeroponics, a process in which plants are grown by having their roots suspended in air and regularly showering them with a nutrient-rich water solution. There’s no need to weed or toil any soil, and there’s much less threat from pests because the system is completely soil-less.

Seedlings are started in a hydroponic grow medium called rockwool, which is derived from basalt rock. It retains plenty of water but still provides the roots with enough oxygen to develop into healthy and strong plants. You can germinate your own seedlings with the grow cubes provided or buy some at your local garden centre. 

The Aerospring garden features a sleek hexagonal pole design that fits in any small apartment, home or balcony, using only 10 square feet, or one square meter, of space. It’s the most efficient way to grow up to 27 plants in a small space.

The Aerospring Indoor highlights the hexagonal shape in the grow tent, integrating six powerful triple-band LED grow lights. The tent can be left entirely open or completely closed in seconds. It illuminates a dark corner of your home, providing an oasis of greenery and the scent of fresh herbs in winter months. The garden is on wheels, so it can easily be moved around or put into any spare room.

Assembling your Aerospring is simple (it takes just fifteen minutes) with no additional tools required. Adding on your Indoor kit is just as easy and can be done in less than an hour.

Because the Aerospring Garden automates irrigation and lighting schedules, there’s very little time and effort required to maintain the garden. But to ensure the very best results, set aside 5 minutes every couple of days to tend to the garden. These few minutes should be used to check plants and to trim away older leaves. You will also need to check on the water and nutrient levels every so often and top them up when necessary. Most people do this about once a week. 

Harvest plants regularly -- pinch and prune the top tips so that they grow more efficiently, but above all, experience the joy of effortless gardening in your own home! Grow an abundance (up to 15lbs/7kg) of fresh, nutritious pesticide-free produce every month

(*actual yield depends on plants grown).

The outdoor Aerospring grows almost anything except root vegetables and trees.

The indoor system is ideal for salads, herbs and other leafy greens providing fresh, pesticide-free produce right at home. It can even be customized to grow a few larger plants, like tomatoes, or any other crop that captures your fancy.

With the addition of the Aerospring Indoor accessory kit, the Aerospring Garden functions as a 2-in-1 system - grow larger plants outdoors from spring through autumn, then add the indoor accessory kit to be able to grow in your home during the winter and colder months. 

It’s efficient, easy to set up and tear down, mobile and incredibly productive. It’s the most versatile gardening system - use it outdoors or indoors, grow as few or as many plants as you’d like. Grow all year round.

Your Aerospring consists of a 20 gallon, or 75 liter, bucket, a lid for the bucket with a small service port, nine hexagonal planter sections, a shower head with lid, nine water pipe conduits and a water pump with a hose and connectors.

Your Indoor kit includes six patented professional LED grow light bars, a fan, a lightweight aluminium wheelbase and frame, a grow tent with six zippable panels and Wi-Fi timers.

The LED grow light bars are like no other - the supplied bars produce the equivalent of 1000W but only consume 138W of electricity. Triple-Band LED technology produces a full-spectrum light to ensure that your plants receive full PAR spectrum which supports healthy vegetation. Patented, novel, single-chip architecture diodes emit blue, green, and red (BGR) bandwidths, full Photosynthetically Active Radiation (400nm to 700nm) for maximum plant yield, while keeping power consumption low.

Super slim and lightweight with a long life expectancy (50,000 hours), they pack a powerful punch to the Aerospring Indoor gardening system.

A little over 3 years ago, Thorben and Nadine had a dream: to grow tasty heirloom tomatoes on their little balcony in their apartment in Singapore.

The high prices of imported fresh produce and concerns about pesticides inspired them to grow their own food at home, but the problem of space in an urban environment quickly became an issue. 

Another challenge was to keep the plants alive when they went away on business trips or holidays. After failing countless times with soil gardens, they devised a vertical hydroponic system that would automatically water and fertilize the plants. Despite their hectic lifestyles, they were able to grow enough food without too much time or effort. Encouraged by this success, Thorben began developing the prototype systems further for commercialization.

The goal was to come up with a food safe system and design that was functional and looked chic on any urban city balcony. Twelve months of 3D prototyping ensued, which led to the invention of a sleek, modular, simple to assemble and easy to maintain vertical gardening system that fits in the smallest of spaces.

The company has since sold over 1500 gardening systems in Singapore and the region, Europe, Australia and the Middle East. But not every climate is suited for year round growing. Singapore’s tropical downpours and blazing humidity can be tough to grow certain greens, so in December 2017 they decided to develop an indoor version of the system that would allow the Aerospring to grow anything, anywhere, anytime.

Aerospring Gardens’ goal is to provide the best growing experience possible, to allow people to take back control over their food, to reconnect with it and truly experience the joy of growing their own food, right at home.

The Aerospring Indoor is proudly on display at the We The People Store’s Millenia Walk Flagship outlet in Singapore!
