This self-watering herb kit that features a blue vintage-inspired mason jar is outfitted with a passive hydroponic system known as “wicking,” which brings water and nutrients up to the plant's roots. So whether you forget to water, overwater, or both, we’ve got you covered. This year-round indoor planter comes equipped with everything you’ll need to start growing, just add water and set in a sunny window.

Other info:

How long does it take to grow?

Basil seeds take 7-14 days to sprout and will be ready to start harvesting in 2+ months. Continuous harvesting will encourage a bushy plant and greater yield.  

 

How long will it last?

A basil plant will continue to grow with sufficient nutrients and light; however, after 3-6 months it will develop a woody stem and the leaves will become a bit bitter.  

 

How much sun will it need?

Herbs require at least 6 hours of direct light daily, and should be put in an unobstructed window that faces south, west or east (southwest is the best option). During winter months—or if you don’t have an unobstructed window—you can supplement with a grow light.  

 

Can I put it outside?

Grow Kits are designed for indoor use, but can be put outside. Be mindful that the planter does not have a drain hole, and if the reservoir floods it may drown the roots. Bring your Garden Jar inside if temps dip below 55⁰ or above 80⁰.    

How is it reusable?

The stainless steel net pot and recycled glass grow medium can both be reused—simply rinse with hot water. Add new seeds and use soil or coco pith to help seeds germinate. Use a water soluble fertilizer and follow its instructions.  

PACKAGING

This product comes with a 100% recyclable label.
