Nano Gardens

We live in times when impossible nothing. If you are willing to harvest plants in your own apartment in the city there are ways to do it all year long! No need for a big space or big investments into huge stands, now you can have your own nano garden in your own kitchen. Healthy life style came to the cities.

How doest it work. Sun and soil

To harvest plants and vegetables you need soil and sun.

New technologies and invention can help you to use special soil-free pallets or discs, which have natural fertilisers and minerals for fast growing and starting of your plants. Great thing about them is that such concentrated mixes keep water in itself much longer, they are dirt-free and organic.

The best thing about nano gardens is LED lamps. It is really hard to have your plants on the sunny side all the time. Moreover if you live in the places where it is raining much of the year – you can be in trouble. Solution is to provide UV light and heat from lamps above the plants, which you get in nano gardens. Modern lamps are very planet and money friendly, they use very little of electricity and need to be exchange once in a couple of years.

Special features of nano gardens

In our overview below you will find some option that are already on the market. All the gadgets have place to be filed with water. More expensive ones are made with sensors to notify you when it is time to water your plans. However it is rather an expensive option.

Another thing that you can look for is automatic turning on/off of lights. Otherwise you will turn it on by yourself. Our advise is that it better be on for at least 12 hours a day, better 16 hours.
