Place the selected seed pods or add your own seed to pre-made pods and turn on the device to start the process. The unit uses a mechanical pump. While some complain about the noise, it is similar in nature to the air pump of an aquarium and after a few days it blends into the background noise. The pump aerates the water so the roots receive the oxygen needed for optimal growth. The grow light and pump use very little electricity to provide the elements plants need to grow in a home. Most users report operation of the system makes no noticeable difference in their power consumption. The grow light is somewhat bright, so you should locate the device in an area where it will not interfere with your sleep. Units are easy to use.

The system is fully automated, making gardening fun and much less work by eliminating tilling and weeding. Your family enjoys fresh produce for the whole year. Need Help With Your Organic Garden? Try These Tips! It might be hard to figure out where to start with gardening, but really, all you need to do is look at your options. Everybody has a different yard and different environmental factors to consider. This article will outline a few tips that will identify ways you can begin preparing a garden at home. When raising new plants, it's helpful to identify the best soil composition that fits your plant. Plants require 3 major nutrients to grow phosphorous, nitrogen and potassium. Learning the special composition for your soil will usually lead to the best plant growth possible. On the other hand having the wrong composition will generally result in average or stunted growth. When dividing or transferring a plant, make sure you keep the roots cool and moist. Roots are the most fragile part of a plant and are extremely sensitive to light and heat. Put a dark plastic bag over the roots if you plan on not transferring the plant right away. Save money by drying the seeds from your annuals to plant next year. Petunias, zinnias and impatiens are just a few of the flowers from which it is easy to extract and save seeds. You will have to extract the seed pod from some flowers, and wait for it to split open. With others, such as marigolds, you will have to open the
  3. 3. flower and extract the seeds yourself. After extracting the seeds, let them dry for at least a week. Place them in a jar with a rubber seal, and add silica gel pouches to keep them from absorbing moisture. Store them in a cool, dry location until you're ready to plant them next year. When you buy young bare-root trees, keep the root ball moist until your are ready to plant. If the roots dry out, the tree will weaken or die. You should plant the tree as soon as you bring it home. If you cannot, lay the tree on its side and cover the roots with moist peat moss, then cover the roots with a tarp. Don't buy plant pots. Commercial plant plots from the garden center can be very expensive, anything from $5 to $100. Any container with a few draining holes pierced into the bottom of it can serve as a plant pot, so to save a lot of money, start recycling food containers today. When you are working in your garden, be sure to leave the praying mantis alone. These insects are skilled predators which take care of any number of harmful pests. In addition, these praying mantises do not harm your garden in any way, so let them go about their work protecting your garden from pests. Salt deposits can form unsightly marks on your clay pots. To easily remove the deposits mix water, rubbing alcohol and white vinegar in equal parts and spray onto the pots. Scrub with a plastic pad or brush and allow the pot to dry completely. Once the pot is dry, you are ready to plant. As you can see, gardening is easy despite the factors in your life. Gardening can be a relaxing and rewarding hobby, while encouraging you to go outside and be familiar with the planet. Gardening is an excellent way to get your family together, too. You should start your gardening efforts today!
