Film Vessels for Heterotrophic & Photoautotrophic Growth & Acclimation

Market Overview:

A plant propagation apparatus is disclosed which comprises a flexible transparent enclosure. The enclosure is disposable and could be formed of a polymer such as polyethylene. The enclosure would have at least two walls formed of a flexible material that facilitates transmission of light through the walls. Plant material is sealed within the enclosure, and a nutrient solution is made available within the sealed enclosure for the plant. The enclosure is a low cost and effective method for propagating young plants and transporting them between the laboratory environment and a greenhouse or field. The enclosure may be configured to receive gas or carbon dioxide on its inner surface to a predetermined level of pressure, thereby affording the enclosure a flexible but stiff mechanical resistance that protects the young plant while it is growing.

Benefits:

· Low cost and effective method for propagating young plants and transporting them between the laboratory environment and a greenhouse or field

· Affords the enclosure a flexible but stiff mechanical resistance that protects the young plant while it is growing
