What does it grow in?
Water! The plants are held together in rockwool - which is the product of a 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. Once the roots grow out of the rock wool, they simply float in the water and grow! As a result, you get soil-free growth that makes this product perfect for homes, cafes, restaurants, and offices!
This Family Farm has 72 of these Rockwool growing pods! So you can grow a variety of your favourite herbs and veggies.
Why you'll love it!
Plants grown in The Family Farm float directly in the water that they grow in, this results in high water efficiency - reducing the amount of maintenance that the system needs! When its time to refill water, the Family Farm will beep - but don't worry, you'll only need to refill on average once every 2-3 weeks.
Our Hydroponic nutrients and full spectrum LED grow lights provide your plants with the perfect nutrient balance and light exposure that they need to grow. This means you will experience higher yields and faster growth as your plants do not need to expend energy growing their root system in search of nutrients.
Furthermore, you can grow food indoors, reducing the distance food travels to get to you - resulting in a fresher meal on your table, fewer emissions from food miles, and fewer plants subjugated to life in the back of a fridge!
