For the 3rd time elected Mayor of the Westland Community, Mr. Sjaak van der Tak, had the privilege of harvesting the world’s first cucumbers grown without daylight. It was made possible in the new PlantyFood Growth chamber made by Certhon.

Water-cooled LED

With special developed water-cooled LED lighting Certhon made it possible to grow in the PlantyFood grow chamber without daylight. PlantyFood is a growth method to grow vegetable seeds into a full grown production plant.

With a constant growing world population, shortage of water and availability of alternative energy, Certhon has developed and combined various techniques to grow year-round, at any place in the world, fresh and healthy vegetables.

The PlantyFood grow chamber will be displayed at the GreenTech (14th – 16th of June) in Amsterdam.
