Hello & Thank You for Reading,

I am an Inventor and I just patented a new device.  I had to take three months of spare time investigating previous designs in Vertical growing to make sure I had something that could be patented.  I suppose that makes me as close to an expert on small scale growing, vertical systems, etc, as it gets.

So rather than see that knowledge lost, I intend to put it all down here at permies.com, starting with my system.

ALSO!!!  I am looking to give away FREE systems!

Yes, free.  Free as in delivered to your door.  All I ask is that you keep in touch and give me your thoughts on the system.  That's all the "payment" I require.

So lets start off with a few photos!

Below is the experimental model I have been growing in the past few months.  This system was seeded with its first round of plants right around Christmas 2017, and this photo was taken just after that.  

And here's the system with a bean growing in it about a month after.

Some more bean photos taken today.



And a shot of the corner in my house... not sure that happen.  Might be me fumbling with a camera...

I think that's enough to get the idea.

In a nutshell, this is a vertical growing system that addresses all of the shortfalls in the filed.  First, it is built like a tree.  A tree works from the inside out.  Every other system works from the outside in.  It's an incredibly subtle bias that has held vertical growing back in terms of really practical growing.  I happen to have stumbled upon the problem that other designs suffer from by accident.  That problem is carrying two-dimensional thought into a three-dimensional world.

More on that as the thread progresses, but for now I am curious what the pictures show people and what your comments might be.  If you want more info and just can't wait, please head over to our website at:  


Most Sincerely,


Up next, my experience with the Mr. Stacky system.


Each of these will start with the heading "Small Scale Growing"  So for instance my review of this system shows the subject line of: Small Scale Growing - VFM Growing System.  The Mr. Stacky review will have the subject line of Small Scale Growing - Mr. Stacky.  Makes it easy to find in the sometimes chaotic world of forums.
