Grow boxes use hydroponics technology to grow plants, herbs, and vegetables in a much shorter time than traditional methods. Hydroponic Grow boxes use only grow lights, fluorescent lights, nutrients, water, and LED grow lights. Using this method allows crops to be harvested after one to two months.
There are various types, styles, and sizes one can choose when wanting an organic grow box to have fresh vegetables and herbs all year long. There are small grow boxes that are suitable for up to 14 plants, and do not take up a great deal of space. They often have reflectors inside, allowing for the temperature to stay lower than the room it is in. They are good for those just starting their hydroponics system, or those that have limited space. They usually come with everything needed to get started.
When all of the nutrients that plants need to survive are given to them in the water they are in, they no longer require soil, since it is only there as a way to hold the nutrients until the roots can absorb them. Using hydroponics, just about any plant that is terrestrial can survive. Some of the advantages to using an organic grow box are:
Grow boxes use a solution rich in nutrients that are often aerated to insure that the roots get the right level of oxygen they require. A reservoir can hold either one, or several plants, and a hole is cut into the top. Then, the solution is changed on a regular schedule, or when the concentration gets too low in the reservoir. Before you know it your crops will be ready for harvest and enjoyment. Contact us with any questions regarding our products. Using grow boxes for an organic home garden is an exceptional way to have fresh vegetables year round, with less less work and space.
While admittedly not the most scientific of tests, there is no way I’m going back to CFL lighting. My reason actually has little to do with the above comments and all to do with the quality of the harvest. Hands down, the Cool Tube produced more yield and better quality. At the end of the day, isn’t that what matters?
