All you have to do is simply add water and the included nutrient mix to the reservoir that provides the proper balance of water, oxygen, and food directly to the plant roots. Hydroponic systems supports plant growth up to 5 times faster than if they were in soils due to the direct root to nutrient contact. In soils roots are only able to uptake food if it comes in contact with them, but a hydroponic system places it right where it is needed.
Size and Space
There are seven spaces for plants to grow in as well as a fully adjustable arm lamp that grows with the height of your plants. This helps save space when not in use, as well as providing proper spacing between the plant and the light to optimize its benefits at all stages of growth.
Full Spectrum, 30-Watt LED Lighting
The type of light being utilized by the plant is also influential to how well this process works. The 30 Watt LED (Light Emitting Diode) system uses a specific light spectrum to maximize this process and help speed up growth. The white, blue, and red lights are specific to differing types of plant support as fast growth, larger yields, and optimal fruit and flowering respectively.
Plants also help filter the air you have in your household as they actually use carbon dioxide as part of the photosynthesis process. Many products in your house are emitting various levels of VOCs (volatile organic compounds), that can make your air feel stale and stuffy, especially during the winter months when your house is all closed up. Living, producing plants can help filter these compounds as well for a healthier indoor space.
Interactive LCD Screen
It also allows you to customize how it is used, so if you are a green thumb expert, or are well versed in how to use the product, you can control how much- or little- you interact with it. You can also set up your alerts depending on what personalization you want to extend to your growing experience. This type of control makes it an awesome choice for science experiments as well.
Simple Seed Pod Planting
There are ways to set up and create your own mix and match plant choice without buying the pod kits, although the product does come with a gourmet herb starter kit to get you off on the right foot. You should take into consideration that some plants will grow larger than others, and even though you should prune and care for your plant to work in the space provided, depending on your variety, you may want to spread plants out.
Additional All in One Seed Pod Kits & Accessories
And if you’ve been wondering about those plants that require pollination for production, no worries as the company has you covered in that aspect as well. The Be the Bee Pollinator helps distribute pollen evenly, and can increase your yield up to 300%.
