Barry Holtz at Caliber Biotherapeutics, built a 150,000-square-foot Vertical Farm, completely isolated, that has never seen the light of day.
He grows 2.2 million plants under the glow of blue and red LEDs, with wavelengths that match those that get absorbed by photosynthesis.
According to Holtz, his type of indoor gardening isn’t going to replace traditional farms anytime soon. “We developed these lights to correctly match the photosynthesis needs of our plants. We get almost 20 percent faster growth rate and save a lot energy.”
