Our open-source library of projects — sustainable, accessible, and ready to exhibit.
What the plant needs to grow: Light, Carbon dioxide, Water.
The Vienna High-Spring-Water supplies our plants at Technical Museum in Vienna with Nitrate, Chloride, Sulfate, Fluoride, Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium and Potassium.
To support optimum growth of our plants, we add
sodium, potassium and phosphates to our water, three of the most important micronutrients in plant cultivation.
The optimum light needed for plant growth is too low in the exhibition area. In order to cover the missing light spectrum and light quality, LEDs were positioned, which were developed especially for plant cultivation. Plants love the red and blue parts of the light spectrum.
Small pumps ensure the enrichment of the water with oxygen and the water cycle itself.
The experimental sculpture is in a permanent process of transformation.
With each visit at TMW you will perceive the plants differently.
