“GroRaptor offers a year-round, sustainable and convenient way of growing plants without the hassle of soil, chemicals, weeds, pests and other components of soil-based farming”
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) February 19, 2015
Tranzbyte, a division of American Green, will premiere its new GroRaptor at CannaCon beginning Thursday, Feb. 19 at Pier 91 Smith Cove Event Center in Seattle. GroRaptor is an advanced home-scale recirculating aquaponics system that allows for high-yield agriculture in small urban areas.
“GroRaptor offers a year-round, sustainable and convenient way of growing plants without the hassle of soil, chemicals, weeds, pests and other components of soil-based farming” said Michael Silvia, VP of Cultivation Technology at Tranzbyte. “It offers a fun and revolutionary way to grow plants and raise fish at home.”
In this system, the fish tank provides nutrient-rich water in the form of fish waste to the plants. The plants then filter the water and recirculate it back to the fish tank. This environmentally friendly method of cultivation reuses 99 percent of the system’s water, losing only a small amount to evaporation.
In addition, GroRaptor features Tranzbyte’s Truth M6 LED Lighting, furthering the energy savings in the system while increasing the quality of the plants. M6 LED, developed specially for agriculture, provides a comprehensive vegetative spectrum, draws minimal power and has a life expectancy of more than 10 years.
Originally designed as a “home brew” solution for medical cannabis patients, GroRaptor has evolved into an all-encompassing agriculture device.
GroRaptor’s launch comes just weeks after American Green’s Seattle debut of ZaZZZ, an automated consumer-operated, ID-verifying marijuana machine.
