(ECNS) -- A vegetable garden simulating a space environment debuted at the 23rd China (Shouguang) International Vegetable Science and Technology Expo and the China (Shouguang) International Vegetable Seed Industry Expo 2022 on Wednesday.

Resembling two space capsules, the garden simulates special space conditions such as strong radiation, microgravity, high vacuum, and alternating magnetic fields to grow vegetables.

Using artificial sunlight, no-soil cultivation, smart environment controls and other technologies, space cultivation imitates nutrients plants need, such as water, sunlight, temperature and humidity under extreme conditions in space.

Vegetable seeds that have been to space were also planted at the simulated space plantation.

A space breeding achievement exhibition area was set up to display 13 varieties, including eggplants, tomatoes and peppers.
