How Does It Work?

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 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!

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 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!

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!

FAQs

Well to be honest there's not much to say - we don't get many Terragarden questions, probably because its so easy to setup and get running, but here are a few tips from our FAQ

Can I grow any type of seed?

Yep, our smart gardens don't do anything tricky that would stop you from growing your own seeds - you can pickup seeds from your garden, nursery, or even from that avocado you ate for lunch, and use it in our smart gardens to grow whatever you want! The only constraint is the height of the product, as plants that grow over 30cm will out grow the light!

Generally we like to grow herbs and leafy greens, as well as flowers, small fruiting plants etc. A few examples of what you can grow include: Nasturtiums, Tomatoes (if dwarfed correctly), Genovese Basil, Cos Lettuce Seeds, Paris Island Cos Lettuce, Violets - Johnny Jump Up, and Bloomsdale Long Standing Spinach.

How do the nutrients work?

The detailed answer for this is pretty long - you should check out our FAQ on how hydroponic nutrients work.

    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:)

    Excellent!!!!!!

    Great product, nice design and quiet when the pump is running. My partner loves growing her strawberrys and basil so much that we bought another model and are planning to save for the family farm version. Support people are so lovely and easy to deal with.

    Great customer service and great grow lights

    We had our grow kit, arm lights and other things arrive. The bamboo frame had some strange damage, but their staff were immediately responsive and helpful, we got a postage return slip RMA from them to send back the damaged one and they sent a replacement :) Tamara was amazing to communicate with, and went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. I’ll happily purchase from them again
