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!
