Nanollose has developed an alternative seed germination and plant growing material called Jelli GrowTM. The product is edible, organic, biodegradable and made from the Company’s Tree-Free Microbial Cellulose.
Jelli GrowTM has already proven to be an effective growing medium with high water retention properties, is easy to use, and is able to grow food and plants in a variety of environments by simply adding seeds to the material.
Soilless substrates for seed germination and plant growth are becoming increasing popular in horticulture due to their ability to control water, nutrient supply and suppress soil-borne diseases. Most available substrate options today are inedible, synthetic and/or non-biodegradable.
Due to increasing food demand from the horticulture industry along with the emergence of vertical and soilless farming systems, Nanollose is targeting these commercial growing sectors first, and also plans to launch a consumer based product in the future.
