Abstract

Container systems for manipulating growth of a plant or a portion thereof in a controlled environment are provided. The growth of the plant can be controlled for ornamental benefit, commercial benefit or both. The container system may comprise separable modular sections, thereby allowing control over the growth of different parts of the plant. The separate modular sections may be assembled together to control the growth of the entire plant.

Claim(s)

1. A container system configured to control the growth of a plant, the container system comprising: a bottom section configured to accommodate and control the growth of a root part of the plant; a middle section configured to accommodate and guide the growth of a stem part of the plant, wherein the middle section comprises a spiral part having a plurality of removable wall pieces that are bonded together to form a hollow spiral tunnel that is configured to guide the growth of the stem part along a spiral route in a spiral shape, and wherein the removable wall pieces shield the stem part of the plant from a light source; and a top section configured to guide the growth of a vegetative part, a reproductive part or both of the plant.
