We’re
reinventing soil.

At Tomgrow™ we have developed a programmable growth medium, MediumX™, that can be customized for specific crops and plants. Our technology enables the plant constant water & nutrients on its demand.

THE PROBLEM

Every growth medium you know is either water wasteful, high maintenance and not environmental at best, at worst it’s all the above. What we offer is a cutting-edge technology that brings a change in the way we can grow plants;
Unlike any other known growth medium

Water retention

Known growth medium does not effectively retain water, making frequent watering necessary.

Water and nutrient wastage

Large amounts of water and nutrients drain through excessive watering.

Not all soil is suitable for all plants

The pH, salinity and nutrients in the soil need to match the needs of the plant.

Soil aeration

Poor drainage and compaction can cause low levels of oxygen.

Non-homogenous

There are variable levels of water, nutrients and oxygen in different areas of soil.

Environmental impact

The extraction of peat moss for potting soil destroys irreplaceable ecosystems and releases masses of carbon into the atmosphere.

Soil is bulky

Soil is transported around the world in high volumes and cannot be reduced down to a more concentrated form.

Root opaque

Soil is opaque and you cannot see through it to see if seedlings or cuttings have sprouted roots, or whether water or nutrients have diffused into it.

Soil damages

Known growth medium may contain bacteria’s & fungi that could harm the plant.

THE SOLUTION

A programmable growth medium, MediumXTM, that can be customized for specific crops and plants. Our technology enables the plant constant water & nutrients on its demand;
