The TerraGarden is the ultimate Indoor Garden for the urban gardener. Say goodbye to growing outdoors, using soil and constantly watering your plants. The TerraGarden solves all these woes with its hydroponic growing technology.
The great thing about the TerraGarden is that you can grow up to 12 plants at once, allowing you to pick and choose what herbs or small veggies will work best.
The TerraGarden includes water aeration pumps and powerful grow lights to make sure you get faster and higher yields.
Forewarning, you might find that you’ll be eating a lot more herbs and greens now that you’ve got a TerraGarden around!
The TerraGarden roots float directly in the water that they grow in, this results in high water efficiency - reducing the amount of maintenance that the system needs! Refill on average once every 2-3 weeks.
Faster & higher yields
Experience higher yields and faster growth as the TerraGarden provides the perfect nutrient balance and light exposure that your plants need to grow.
Convenience at your fingertips
Modern design fits in most kitchens or living rooms - just metres away from your plate. Save the trip to the supermarket and harvest fresh herbs when you need them!
Reduce food miles
By growing food in your own home, you reduce the distance food travels to get to you - resulting in a fresher meal on your table and fewer emissions from food miles! Yay environment!
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
There are 17 essential elements requried 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 Terragarden 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!
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 TerraGarden is clip in the light panel to the strut, and clip that into the water basin. Add in your rockwool cubes to the netcups, add water and nutrients and you're good to go!
There isn't too much maintenance required with the TerraGarden - 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!
