Growing your own veggies and herbs is now easier with IKEA’s new KRYDDA/VÄXER hydroponic garden. Anyone regardless of their gardening experience can use it with ease, even those with little to no gardening experience at all.
The KRYDDA/VÄXER hydroponic garden kit allows you to grow your own produce at home, without all the fuss and even half the time it takes to do traditional gardening. Since it uses the hydroponic system, you can grow plants without any soil. Seeds sprout on water absorbent foam plugs which keeps plants moist without danger of over-watering. When the seeds germinate, you can transfer an entire plug in a plastic pot and fill it with water-absorbing pumice stones that support the plants as they grow. Then transfer the pots into the growing tray fitted with a solar lamp. The solar lamp acts like sunlight and provides year-round nourishment for the plants. A built-in water sensor is also included that lets you know whether your plants are over or under-watered.
The magic principle of three works here. You only need three things to begin: water, seeds, and the growing kit. And you’ll only need to remember three important things for your plants to grow: water, light, and love. Everything you need to use to grow your own produce is included in the kit, except water of course. All in all, it’s a really cool indoor garden system. So cool, that we’d love to get our hands on one right now.
Although IKEA is better known for its range of modern and multi-purpose home furnishings like bookshelves, tables, and organizers, the company is currently keeping with the trend towards sustainability and eco-friendliness. The KRYDDA/VÄXER hydroponic garden kit is sure to be a hit.
