The Importance of Antimicrobial Plastic
The LeafTree system’s super strong plastic is embedded with antimicrobial agents in the resin itself which helps to prevent fungus and microbial growths, unlike bamboo, which is a natural host environment for salmonella, E. coli, and black mold.
Colorado state regulatory requires the routine testing of marijuana crops for mold, fungus, mildew, and other bacteria. Specific organisms mentioned included powdery mildew, bud rot, black mold, aspergillus, E. coli, salmonella, and others.
Growers are becoming extremely thorough in efforts to prevent growth of these organisms because they can lead to expensive crop seizures. The regulatory landscape for marijuana growers is quickly evolving.
With the LeafTree we are targeting to replace the bamboo plant stands, which are susceptible to microbe growth with a polymer antimicrobial alternative. Download our efficacy test results!
What Our Customers Are Saying…
"I have been using the Leaf Tree for a year now and these are the things that I have noticed: It lends itself to super-cropping which in return gives us larger yields. Due to spreading of the plant, with the paddles we’re seeing an increase of 30-50% more bud sites. It improves air flow in and around the plant. As the plant starts to flower the paddles come into play and support the plant. No more broken branches, or time spent tying them up. We have seen labor cost savings up to 40% in our trials. Because the Leaf Tree paddles, and stakes are made of an anti-microbial technology that will help keep fungus, and bacteria from infecting your plants, it will redefine the cannabis industry. The versatility and long term usage makes the Leaf Tree a no brainer at our facility."

"So far, I think they are awesome! At first I was a little skeptical of price and what comes in a box, but I didn’t realize how many pieces you actually get in the box until I opened it and started setting it up so that changed my mind. I like how it allows light to penetrate lower on the plant and it’s easy to set up" - Michael Harris
