Jean-Francois Levesque

I have 25 years of experience in hydroponics. I started in the world of medical cannabis growing and cuttings, mastering the following techniques: High Pressure Aeroponics, Drippers, Ebb&Flow and NFT; and grow mediums like rockwool and coco. I am passionate about learning new techniques and I can work with all possible hydroponics but I do not recommend some of them like DWC and aquaponics.

For the last 6 years I founded the research and development company Vertiponic to push my knowledge of cannabis growing further into the field of food cultivation and year-round greenhouse production.

Some of my achievements include:

  • Innovative design of High Pressure Aeroponics which does not clog in at least 11 months
  • Designed, built and run several complete year-round fully equipped hydroponic greenhouses
  • Cherry tomatoes in rockwool ready in 5.5 weeks from the clones
  • Personal record of 60 pounds of cucumbers per plant in coco
  • Year-round strawberries and peppers
  • High Pressure Aeroponics crops in all conditions even the summer’s full sun
