Check out this type of gadget for indoor gardening
Herbs and condiments make the food we put in our mouths a lot tastier. If you’re into home cooking, you’ve probably purchased things like basil, rosemary, and a variety of other herbs in their dried form. But what if you were capable of growing them on your own?
If you don’t have a green thumb and you’ve never considered yourself able to care for plants, there are two ways of going about things. One of them is to purchase a stackable planter set, although we do have to note that this kind requires a bit of effort on your part. The other is to choose an indoor herb garden kit that works all on its own.
AeroGarden has a somewhat affordable alternative in this sense. The company’s gardening system is designed in such a way so as to save you a lot of time and effort you’d otherwise have to invest in caring for your apartment plants. It’s also worth adding that, unlike traditional herb garden kits, this option doesn’t even require any soil.
The plants grow in water, which means that the amount of mess you will make while caring for them on occasion will be minimal. This type of gadget is also sleek enough to fit any counter or any space you might have available in your kitchen. Best of all, it’s equipped with LED lighting that turns itself off and on automatically depending on the estimated requirements of the plant.
The only downside to choosing an electronic herb garden kit is the fact that it does tend to cost a pretty penny compared to its traditional counterpart. Things like Garden in a Can or a DuneCraft Dome Terrarium can cost around twenty to twenty-five dollars, depending on where you get them from. By contrast, an electronic kit can get as expensive as two hundred, depending on the number of plants you want to grow and the technically advanced features it comes with.
Click & Grow is one of the popular manufacturers in the industry, and this brand makes high-end smart gardens and even indoor and wall farms, all of which come with their own lighting. With a wall farm, you can grow as many as 51 plants. It goes without saying that this choice is perfect for restaurants or small bistros where the amount of mint and basil consumed on a daily basis is rather high.
But don’t worry, there are also mini wall farms for those interested in doing the same, just that they don’t have a lot of room left in their home. With these options, you can grow up to 34 plants. You do have to get the seed pods from the same manufacturer, though, just to ensure that your herbs will grow happy and healthy.
Any person who’s been remotely interested in gardening in the past will know that some seeds are bad and others are good. Fortunately, those provided by these brands are all ready to grow.
