How does the Growboxx Plant Cocoon work?

The operating system of the Growboxx Plant Cocoom is very easy and intuitive. Its main benefit is that it needs 90% less water than a traditional irrigation system: Once the first year of useful life has passed, it begins to biodegrade, providing beneficial nutrients for the tree.

Plant trees economically

The Growboxx is ideal, if you are looking for cost savings, since it allows you to plant trees in combination with vegetables, or shrubs. How is it possible? This is due to the fact that the Growboxx Plant Cocoon has different holes through which it can be planted in an accessory way to the main plant and can be used to shade or grow vegetables.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) Growboxx Plant Cocoon

What is the time of use of the Growboxx?

The Growboxx can only be used once, because the box and lid are made of recycled paper and it´s biodegradable.

Can large trees be planted with the Growboxx?

Using only 1 Growboxx, the maximum diameter on the plant stem should be 7 centimeters, the same size as the Waterboxx. In case you want to plant bigger trees, contact us and we will help you.

Is it better to plant seeds or seedlings?

We dot recommend planting seeds with the Growboxx® plant cocoon, since its effectiveness is not the same as using seedlings or cuttings. In case you want to plant seeds, our recommendation is to use the 4 small holes in the Growboxx that have been created for seeds.

What is the difference between Waterboxx and Growboxx?

The main difference is that using the Growboxx you will not have to remove the box once the first year has passed, instead with the Waterboxx it will be necessary to remove it in order to continue using the product.

How can I plant in the smaller holes of the Growboxx?

In this case, in the smallest holes, the plant will not be directly connected to the ground, so we recommend the use of germinated seeds that have reported a better result. We recommend that just under the seed put about 4cm of soil and cover the seed above with 1 cm. In just two weeks the seed will reach the water levels of the Growboxx.

Is it necessary to completely bury the box?

If your purpose is to plant seedlings, grass or other plants, we recommend that the top of the Growboxx protrudes about 3 cm above the soil surface.

Opinions by experts

“Based on the results we see in our reports, we can conclude that a large-scale ecosystem restoration plan can be developed in the Galapagos. In addition to the high survival rate of the plants, we can also see that there is a positive impact on their growth speed. ”

Swenz Lorenz

Executive Director, Charles Darwin Foundation

“These results clearly show that the plantations carried out with the Groasis Waterboxx were a success, with a survival rate of over 90% in our 2011 project. There are significant water savings, having used only 15 liters of water per tree.”

Juan Ignacio Boudon

Head of the Protected Wild Areas Department, CONAF

“The study of the effects on the survival rate of fruit trees shows a survival rate of 100% in apple, orange and guava trees, in the case of avocado the survival rate was 84%. Water saving is considerable.”
