According to Shilao's interview with the technicians, they have been able to grow about 20 kinds of plants, including tomatoes and peppers. The greenhouse is also easy to maintain, requiring only one person to complete the work in an hour.

In the interview, the technician revealed that the system has been used in the central and western war zones and has been featured in the PLA newspaper (which means recognition and praise for the system). They also found that the system was a morale booster, so imagine the luxury of having a greenhouse to grow plants in the middle of nowhere! They are doing more research on this.

Personally, I think this system would be much more useful in SCS than in Tibet, since islands are more difficult to resupply and more water-starved than highlands. Also based on the cooperation the technicians claim to have with the Navy, I suspect this technology could be used on warships or even nuclear submarines. Both have real needs for vegetables and the mental health of soldiers, which is what this system can meet.

Some late additions. the P4 is a baking trailer that can reach a rate of 1,000 loaves per hour. This is a much higher rate than the PLA's traditional steamed buns, and requires fewer hands.

Number #1 star of Zhuhai air show 2020/2021 right here! Although aren’t steamed buns preferred over baked buns generally speaking? Just looking at a morale point of view, such a substitution

Besides the warships, I actually think it’s more useful in a commercial scenario than military. The placard even mentions urban underground environment. What is the yield of one container vs. a plane load flying in food? More like a novelty similar to how US military containerizes fast food restaurants.

This greenhouse is probably more suitable for alpine, cold and water deficient Tibet than in SCS . Island has no problem growing food see the abundant and luxurious vegetation in SCS with plenty of rain and balmy weather. It is the soil that is the problem because artificial island is built manly on sand and gravel. But China has a solution for it from their experience in taming dessert in NW. They add organic paste to the sand to allow it retain water and nutrient. Plus those Island are big and has thousands of personnel . Greenhouse is not going to be able to supply food for all of them. Better conventional high intensity farm. Recently they found fresh water on those island from naturally form water reservoir under those island

, a Chinese study has found.

The fresh water was discovered beneath Fiery Cross Reef, known as Yongshu in China, and is believed to be growing at a rate of about 1 metre (3.3 feet) per year – more than twice the speed observed on naturally formed islands.
Similar reservoirs could also be building up under other artificial islands across the region, according to researchers from the South China Sea Institute of Oceanology
