How does it work?
Hydroponics generally refers to food that is grown in water and without soil, often featuring LED grow lights and hydroponic nutrients. The Hydroponic nutrients contain the optimal quantities of all of the minerals which are generally contained in soil such as those nutrients that plants consume in large quantities like nitrogen, potassium and phosphate, as well as those required in smaller quantities such as boron, magnesium and calcium.
The LED grow lights replicate the wavelengths of light that plants need to grow - which are primarily the red and blue spectrums. The result? Hydroponics grows food using 90% less water and 60% less space - often achieving better yields in the process. It provides the perfect environment for growing - better root aeration, consistent water supply, a powerful light supply and so on - all resulting in optimal plant growth.
So what does it grow in?
The Indoor Smart Garden grows plants in smart soil instead of dirt. Smart Soil absorbs 3x its own weight in water, which it uniformly distributes throughout itself - allowing your plant to have consistent access to water, oxygen, and nutrients. The outcome of this is a mess-free solution that allows your kitchen to stay clean while your plants grow!
Why you will love it!
Compact & Convenient
The Indoor Smart Garden is compact and fits in even the smallest of kitchens. Once your plants reach maturity you'll have fresh herbs available in your kitchen - meaning you don't have to go to the supermarket every time you run out of herbs, and you won't have to watch herbs die in your fridge! Just harvest fresh herbs when you need them!
Super water efficient
Your indoor smart garden isn't a heavy guzzler, it's super water-efficient, only needing to be refilled every three weeks on average! And don't worry about forgetting to water it, your smart garden has a water level indicator that will beep for you when it's thirsty - meaning you won't find any limp plants that haven't been watered.
Wide Variety of plants
You can grow a wide variety of herbs and leafy greens with this smart garden, meaning you can ditch the limp leaves and plastic bags that you would otherwise buy from a supermarket (only to watch wilt in your fridge). We recommend herbs and leafy greens such as lettuce, basil, coriander, parsley, or dill to begin with.
Powerful Grow Lights
The indoor smart garden utilises high-performance full spectrum 8 Watt LED grow lights with an automatic timer, and reading light. It comes with a power adapter for Australian outlets, and water level indicator that beeps and flashes when you need to re-water your plants.

This product does not come with grown plants as seen in the picture above.
You can grow most small plants in this unit. This bundle provides you with a fantastic selection of plants to get started - Basil & Coriander are particularly great places to start! If you would like to try something different to supplement your seed bundle we recommend trying Parsley, Lovage, Spinach or Thyme as well.
You need to add 2 grams of nutrients (or one teaspoon) every time you refill once the plants germinate, usually once a month in the beginning, up to an average of once every 2 weeks (depending on the type of plant/temperature). This bundle comes with a large jar of nutrients but you can also buy nutrients when you run out from here or check out our Smart Garden Replant Pack
