Grow tall plants in small spaces.

An Automated Horizontal Plant-Training System to Maximize Space & Output

Urban and indoor farming are the future, but traditional farming methods and tools won’t always translate from the field to the indoor farm. At Trella Technologies, we create energy-efficient and globally-scalable solutions to problems unique to the indoor farming industry. In an aim to ensure the industry’s longevity for future generations, we’re diversifying the types of plants that can be grown indoors with sustainable, automated plant-training robotics.

Trella Technologies was born when CEO Aja N. Atwood struggled to grow tall plants in her small basement. As an engineer faced with a lack of space, she dove deep into research which revealed the concept of growing plants horizontally. However, all the existing methods she could track down were manual, labor-intensive, and inefficient. So, together with fellow inventor Andres “Dre” Chamorro III, the two prototyped, built (and built again) what would become Trella Technologies’ unique plant-training solution. Every step of the way, they sought and incorporated input from experienced growers and engineers to refine the design and prepare it for production.
