What does it grow in?
Water! The plant is 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 rockwool, they simply float in the water and grow! As a result, you get 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 veggies. All you need to get started are seeds and nutrients of your choice!
Why you'll love it!
The EcoKitchen's roots float directly in the water that they grow in, this results in high water efficiency - reducing the amount of maintenance that the system needs! Refill on average once every 2-3 weeks. Experience higher yields and faster growth due to this product providing the perfect nutrient balance and light exposure that your plants need to grow.
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 live in the back of a fridge!
