How does it work?
The plant is held 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 our hydroponic nutrient water and grow. providing you with soil-free growing that makes this product perfect for your kitchen!
The lights themselves replicate the wavelength of light that plants need to grow. This wavelength is usually a small band of blue light between 430 and 450 nm, and red light between 640 and 680 nm which when combined result in a purple glow. With this product however, we have incorporated other wavelengths of light, resulting in a warm white light colour which is a comfortable addition to any home.
This EcoKitchen has 12 rockwool growing pods! So you can grow a variety of your favourite herbs and leafy greens such as lettuce, basil, coriander, parsley, rocket and more! All you need to get started are seeds and nutrients of your choice!

We had our grow kit, arm lights and other things arrive. The bamboo frame had some strange damage, but their staff were immediately responsive and helpful, we got a postage return slip RMA from them to send back the damaged one and they sent a replacement :) Tamara was amazing to communicate with, and went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. I’ll happily purchase from them again
Received as a gift. Worked well for a few months and looks very nice on a countertop. but then a drip started to develop at the rear of the unit. The company hasn’t made it easy to replace it. First I sent photos, then they wanted A video. Then they were reluctant to replace the wooden part which was water damaged as a result of the leak. So I had to take it apart and send more videos. Then instead of the company simply replacing it I need to return it to them which now involves finding the right sized box to send it back. Goodness knows how long this replacement process will take all said and done for a faulty product.
Great little grower. Especially as I live in an apartment and it’s often hard to grow plants on my balcony. My only suggestion is that the water tray was on rails or would slide out so that it can be easily removed. There also some inconsistencies in the information about nutrients and how much to add for the plants. One pamphlet says 6l refill but it actually holds 7? Will see how it goes when they’ve grown out and share photos. Pete
