Features

LED Grow Lights

The lights themselves replicate the wavelength of light that plants need to grow. This wavelength is usually a small band of blue light between 400 and 500 nm, and red light between 600 and 700 nm which when combined result in a purple glow. The white light LED diodes in this product emit a lot of blue light, and the red lights provide the red light. When combined it provides all the light that most plants need to grow! See our FAQ for more on how growlights are different to normal lights

Hydroponic Nutrients

There are 17 essential elements required for plant growth. Three of these are carbon, hydrogren and oxygen (which the plant gets from water and air), the rest are macronutrients (Nitrogen, Potassium and Phosphate) and Micronutrients (Calcium, magnesium, sulfur, boron, chlorine, iron, manganese, zinc, copper, molybdenum, and nickel). Most fertilisers only have the three macronutrients at best. In comparison our Hydroponic nutrients contain 14 essential elements required for plant growth! All you need to do to use it is mix it in with water and watch as your plant grows! You can find way more detail on how hydroponic nutrients work in our faq.

Rockwool Growing Medium

The plant is held in rockwool - which is the product of a molten rock that has been heated and spun like fairy floss. Rockwool provides uniform oxygenation for a plant's roots, as well as a stable medium for the plant to be secured by. Germinating seeds in rockwool has a 90% success rate if you make sure to wet the seeds! Once the roots grow out of the rockwool, they simply float in our hydroponic nutrient water and grow. providing you with soil-free growing that makes this product perfect for your kitchen! This EcoKitchen has 12 rockwool growing pods! So you can grow a variety of your favourite herbs and leafy greens such as lettuce, basil, coriander, parsley, rocket and more! All you need to get started are seeds and nutrients of your choice!

Assembly

If you've ever setup somethign that's flatpacked then this will be a walk in the park for you! All you need to do to setup the EcoKitchen is screw in the wooden panels with the allen key provided, add in your rockwool cubes to the netcups, plant seeds, add water and nutrients and you're good to go!

Maintenance

There isn't too much maintenance required - on average you will only need to re-fill water and nutrients every 2-4 weeks. When the water runs low, refill it and add two scoops (scoop provided) of the hydroponic nutrients provided into the water basin and mix! Make sure you mix the nutrients in correctly - as it won't work if it's not dissolved! If anything goes wrong - troubleshooting is easy, the best way to get back on track is to throw our the old nutrient water solution (into the garden or some other plants) and start again with fresh water and nutrients!

Very excitedly watching my herbs grow

Very easy set up and it's been less than a week and I've got 2cm herbs sprouting in all sections. Very excited at how quickly they are growing and looking forward to my bumper crop. Would have liked more detailed instructions on things like how and when to add nutrients and how to use the nutrient monitor (no instructions at all with this) but I guess I can find this out online...just wouldn't be that hard to provide a quick guide for newbies! Thanks - it is a beautiful set up.

An essential part of my kitchen

I loved mine so much that I bought a second! We live in the alpine region, and between rabbits, wind and snow, growing herbs outside is impossible. Greenhouses blow away and rabbits eat everything.

I finally invested in an EcoKitchen combo and within weeks wondered why I had delayed so long. I now have two. My only real issue is that my new puppy has chewed up the terrarium cups and now I need to buy more! Love having fresh herbs on hand in my kitchen.

A little bit life changing

Basically I can not be trusted to buy leafy greens because they will rot at the bottom of my fridge because I have forgotten it's there. But if i don want them they aren't there either because i rarely buy it. It's a was never ending cycle of disappointment and the opposite of freshness. I wanted to be healthy but would I ever conquer my fear of fresh produce?!

This awesome thing is super compact, lives in my study. Looks cute, very important! Suddenly I have lettuce when I need it and it doesn't rot when I leave it a couple of days. It's always there looking lush, crispy and appealing. Tempting me to make healthy choices. Filling the air with oxygen (probably idk) I also feed my house mate's rabbit when I don't feel like I can keep up with the growth rate which has made very popular with the little guy! Fluffy friend approved.

Oh yeah my housemate and I had quite the basil feast when the harvest became too bountiful so it's not all lettuce and rabbit feeding. There was pesto for all!!!

All in all I am surprised how well it's going and how easy it is. Basically I love it and wish I could have bought it sooner!

Hey Hannah,

This has been so lovely to read! Thanks for sharing your growing journey with us and that it's fluffy friend-approved. Let us know if you have any questions but it sounds like you have it under control, happy growing!

Thanks,
