I'm Ready To Build My Sun Shelf!

Why You Will Love It
Specifications

The sun shelf is a completely modular indoor garden which can be bought with 2,4 or 6 light panels, and 0, 2, 4, or 6 hydroponic growing basins.

The Sun Shelf frame comes in its own box which includes everything you need to start growing your ecosystem:

  • 4x Wooden shelves that can be loaded with up to 30kg of plants per shelf, plus built-in magnetic mounts for the grow lights to clip on to. There are 16x screws included for bolting in the shelf levels to the metal frame.
  • 2x Black powder coated steel frames with integrated cables already set up - ready to go. A structural cross bar, and 5x screws are included to eliminate the wobble on your shelf.
  • 1x 150W, 24V military grade Meanwell power supply, with IP65 water resistant cabling. This means your entire multi-layer Sun Shelf can run off one power supply, so no messy cabling. The adaptor retails at $150. 
  • 1x Spare pump controller power cable.

When setup the sun shelf dimensions are - width: 105cm, depth: 32cm, height: 138cm.

The lights for the sun shelves come in pairs. Each set includes:

  • 2x Sun panels (fits out one level of shelving) fitted with high efficiency LED Grow lights. A set of 6 panels consumers 325kWh of electricity each year if they are on their maximum intensity setting for 12 hours per day. Most plants would need less than this.
  • 8x Integrated magnets to clip straight onto your frame, and 8 regular screws in case you want to mount them onto your own furniture.
  • 1x Electronic controller to adjust your light timer between 3/6/9/12/15/18 hours per day, and 10 different intensity levels.

The Growing Modules also come in pairs, each set includes:

  • 2x Growing basins - each with with lids, pumps, water level indicators, 12x netcups per basin, and 12x rockwool cubes per basin.
  • 1x Pump controller with two magnetic screws pre-installed.

Orders with growing modules will include a 1L herb and leafy green nutrient, and a seed bundle containing our most popular seeds.

If you choose to buy the sun shelf with a Pot Combo, it will include:

  • 3x Self watering Square Pots.
  • 1x Hardwood Propagation station.
  • 5L Clayballs.

    Urban Plant Growers Sun Shelf Review
    29/01/2023

    Love it, although I wish it had more space between shelves

    I love this Sun Shelf and I'm really glad I bought it. It is amazing for growing cos lettuce and rocket. I've had some seeds that didn't sprout, and some that sprouted but quickly died, but the cos lettuce, rocket, dill and basil really took off. It's great for starting the growth process, both from seeds I bought from Urban Plant Growers, seeds I've bought elsewhere and seeds I've harvested myself from supermarket food (baby capsicums and tomatoes- I even have two capsicums growing right now!). I even saved house plants that were almost dead. Most of my plants (lettuce, red amaranth, dill, basil etc) have gotten too big for the space though. I don't know how to keep them small enough. I think I'm going to have to remove a shelf - I'm not sure what to do with the extra grow lights though. For the moment, I have plants on the floor next to it, they still seem to get enough light. My suggestions for future iterations would be to make the unit taller to have more space between each shelf, to make the shelves easier to move once set up, batteries in remotes (as they reset when there is a power outage), and an easier way to refill water/larger water reserves and/or a shared larger water reservoir).

    Urban Plant Growers Sun Shelf ReviewUrban Plant Growers Sun Shelf Review

    The easiest way to grow plants!!

    I am pretty new to hydroponics and the Sun Shelf is my first hydroponic system. I am so happy with how easy quick everything is to set up - as well as how quickly all of my seeds have germinated in the modules! Within a matter of a couple of days all of my seeds had sprouted! I live in an apartment that doesn’t get much sun, so I am using 3 levels with light panels and 2 of them have modules - the extra level with light I use for my other house plants and they are all very happy under their new light! I love how the shelf lights up my living space as well as being great for my plants Another great aspect is that the lights can be put on a timer and at different intensities, so all of the different plants are getting exactly how much light they need and I don’t have to worry about remembering to turn the lights on or off! I would definitely recommend the Sun Shelf to anyone interested because if it’s ease of use and versatility!! My plants are looking so healthy! ���

    Urban Plant Growers Sun Shelf Review

    Love my sun shelf!

    The sun shelf has been an excellent addition to my home, it’s fully customisable and is very stylish. I love the design and finish of the product. I can grow veggies on one shelf and indoor plants on another, I love the versatility and customisation. It is the only product on the market which comes with everything you need to grow food and plants indoors, not matter what conditions you have at home. The shelving has adjustable height which is fantastic for my taller plants. I really love my sun shelf, it’s so practical and functional with style!

    Easy to set up and looks beautiful. I wish it could be a little bigger between shelves but still love it

    Sun Shelf easy to install

    I was surprised as to how easy it was to install the sun shelf and get it operational. It is now full of begs and herbs, enough to feed the family and grandkids.

    Perfect to get seedlings started and for micro greens

    Easy set up and we were going in a very short time. After a couple of days we already had greens growing and now we can’t wait to produce more of our own edibles in a protected indoor environment

    Sunshelf

    So far, so good. After purchasing the urban family farm I also purchased the sunshelf. Currently doing an experiment between the two as I noticed the Sunshelf doesn't have fans. Design wise the sunshelf is a much better presented unit for the family home a better price point and appears to be alot quieter than the indoor urban family farm. That's the pumps alone even though they appear to be idenitcal? I will let you know growth rates and if the fan of the indoor urban farm spurs things along. It wouldn't be a hard fix to attach a small fan if need be but just something that had me curious. The magnets have been a great add. So far, so good. Yet again a very happy customer.

    So customisable!

    Very excited to keep using the sun shelf to grow herbs and leafy vegetables indoors. We do not have a balcony and only get indirect sunlight so having grow lights is vital! Set up was fine following the manual.

    6/5!

    I cannot express how much I love the sun shelf!! A few weeks in, and I already have a harvest of $6000 worth of lettuce (2022 prices). I have built many custom plant shelves over the years, but in cost vs simplicity vs quality, the sun shelf wins hands down. The lights are far better than others I've spent more on, and in a very short time, I have better results from both my house plants and hydro veggies than from other grow lights I've bought. Honestly, don't bother trying and failing with grow lights, just get this! (Pictured: small fortune in lettuce)

    The best indoor solution

    The sun shelf is just the best. I live in a pretty small apartment and the fact that I can grow a full herb garden with no soil is just mind blowing to me. Never again will I have to buy another bunch of fresh herbs that will last 48 hours before ending up wilting their way into the bin. I also love how customisable it is! I am growing 12 different herbs as well as storing books, small indoor plants and some cool bottles. I love my sun shelf!
