Excellent for growing herbs, leafy greens or even miniature varieties of some vegetables, this large-capacity self-watering system is soil-based, so you can propagate seeds, transplant seedlings or grow larger plants directly in the soil.
The unit has a durable, height-adjustable canopy that contains a full-spectrum LED light (color temperature of 6400 kelvin) rated for 50,000 hours of operation (8.5 years at 16 hours on, 8 hours off daily). You can control the on/off cycle manually with a switch on the power cord, or remotely through a built-in timer and free phone app (English only). The canopy moves on telescoping aluminum supports to a maximum of 13" high for positioning the light at the correct height for your plants. This allows them to grow in the planter long term to promote a well-developed root system.
Measuring 22" × 8" × 8" deep, the sturdy polypropylene planter holds 12 litres (0.4 cu.ft.) of soil and has a rigid inner liner with openings that permit water from a reservoir to wick into the soil. In our testing, we found the water in the 3 litre (0.79 U.S. gal.) capacity reservoir lasted 6 to 8 weeks. The planter has an easily accessible fill port and a water-level indicator to show when a top-up is needed.
A high-quality, low-maintenance system for the indoor gardener.
