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 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 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!

    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!

    Amazing, easy to use with great results

    How exciting to grow your own food on your kitchen bench in a city apartment. It’s a fun way of growing food, easy to set up and manage, and a great intro into hydroponics. Love the built in growth lights, water pump and all the seeds and rock wool to get you started. You can see growth in the first week and then see the growth and change in your edible plants on a daily basis! My husband and I are obsessed with our little kitchen garden!

    Favourite kitchen acquisition

    I’ve had my Eco Kitchen for two weeks, and it’s giving me such pleasure. I love checking on the growth of my little seedlings and can’t wait to have an abundance of lettuce and herbs for salads.

    Anyone can do it!

    I have a black thumb, I literally have never been able to keep anything alive. I now have herbs AND they’re thriving! I can’t believe it!!! I’m so in love with my EcoKitchen, and if you pop into the Urban Plant Growers Facebook group they’re all so helpful with any questions you might have. I’ve learnt so much that I’ve done a second order, transplanted all of my herbs into a larger self watering pot from Urban Plant Growers and some in the ground and have started more, tomatoes and capsicums as well as other herbs this time! Thanks Urban Plant Growers! (Please note the photo of the taller basil is after Easter when I had picked most of the leaves off and made a beautiful pesto-they were gorgeously bushy!)

    Great fresh herbs

    I think it’s great being able to watch the herbs grow and then being able to use them in all different types of recipes as well as salads nothing beets freshly grown herbs.

    Perfect way to start a herb garden!

    I wanted to grow herbs but didn’t want to have the mess with soil and pots! This is exactly what I was after and it is so much more aesthetically pleasing, plus I can have my herbs growing on my kitchen counter which is so convenient:)

    Healthiest herbs I’ve ever grown!

    Completely happy with the whole experience from pick up in Marrickville where the customer service was amazing to the easy construction of the frame and now I have the healthiest herbs on there way. No more insects getting to my herbs before I do!
