Bok choy, a leafy green that belongs to the cruciferous vegetable family, is one of the fastest-growing crops grown on an aeroponic tower. Aside from the fact that it is fast to grow, it also has high resistance to pests and fungi.

At Agrotonomy, in our Tower Farms, we grow up to 52 bok choy on a single aeroponic tower in less than one meter of space without the use of soil, just water mixed with a 100% natural ionic mineral nutrient solution.

Growing bok choy starts with the propagation process. The rockwool, a soilless substrate made from basalt rock, is soaked in the water for 20 minutes. It comes with the tower when you purchase it.

Once the rockwool is completely soaked, we put the seed into each hole of the tray. Each tray has 98 holes. 
When growing white bok choy, due to its large size, we recommend placing only one seed per hole to avoid overcrowding the growing ports on the aeroponic tower. However, two seeds per hole can be placed when germinating green bok choy, as it grows smaller than its white counterpart.

The seeds are watered until they germinate and become seedlings. They are then transplanted to the aeroponic tower, where they are irrigated intermittently for 3 minutes on and 12 minutes off continuously (4.8 hours per day) using a low-wattage submersible pump in the bottom reservoir that provides water mixed with an ionic mineral nutrient solution for healthy plant growth. It is also important to use grow clips to secure the bok choy in place.
After six weeks of growth, bok choy will fully mature and become ready for harvest.

Bok choy is versatile and can be enjoyed in various ways such as raw, cooked as a side dish, or steamed to retain their vibrant color and nutrients—just like you would with other leafy greens.

Whether consumed raw or cooked, bok choy has a lot of vitamins and minerals. It is a rich source of selenium, which is believed to have anticancer properties. It also contains fiber, supporting a healthy digestive system.

Using our innovative vertical farming method on aeroponic towers, it is possible to have an abundant harvest with just a minimal amount of effort.
