Fig. 1

A 3D representation of the rhizobox components: transparent polycarbonate (PC) panel with holes on the sides and bottom edges; dark-red cotton cloth with micro-holes less than 50 μm that do not allow roots to penetrate; open-cell ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) and PC spacer with holes in the middle line with bolts inserted. The root system grows between the PC panel and the cloth. An irrigation tube with micro-holes lies on the top of the EPDM. The rhizobox is 470 mm wide, 550 mm high and 33 mm thick
