Wastewater contains everything a plant would need, some of it is even more than needed. Plant population on the top of the reactors works as a combination of species not as individual plants. Our design always takes local flora integration and surrounding landscape into consideration
The plant roots are dangling into the water. Roots have large surface area providing habitat for microorganisms and other animals from higher orders. Roots are breathing, and supply the biofilm with oxygen.
The plant rack is a steel frame with elastic netting. The mesh lets the roots and air passing through the clay pebbles and the root zone. The clay pebbles in the plant racks are similar to the ones the biofilters utilize as media for air treatment bacteria. They provide habitat for them.
