Urban Gardening with IKEA Urban Gardening with IKEA

Urban Gardening with IKEA

As much as I like my greens around me in my own little urban jungle, I have never really endeavoured on the urban gardening journey. I have always claimed that my home is too small for any urban gardening project. I mean if I had a balcony, hello me planting tomatoes, fresh herbs, strawberries, veggies. But in a small rooftop apartment with limited natural light potential" Nah, that won’t work. Until IKEA introduced me to their new hydroponic system for urban gardening projects – in even the smallest apartments with no requirements whatsoever to the light situation. I was intrigued. And I was all game to test the new KRYDDA/VÄXER hydroponic system - without putting on gardener boots!

So how does this hydroponic system works" Fairly easy I’d say, even though it requires some patience after all – you know, no plant grows in one night. First you have to prepare the little rooting cushions by letting them soak in water. Then you are ready to put a few seeds on each cushion according to the description on the seed packaging. Each cushion is placed in the tray that is filled up with water so that the cushions sit in water and stay wet. When you are done put the transparent lid on and let the seeds germ. For this step I have put the tray just close to a window and waited a few weeks for the first plant sprouts to show off.

Once the sprouts have grown a little it is time to repot them in the little baskets. The hydroponic system comes with all accessories needed. A pumice mixture serves as soil and you can plant the entire cushion with the little sprout in the baskets. These are also placed on the specific tray which will then be filled up with water. A little bit of liquid fertilizer (which is part of the package too) adds necessary nutrients for the little plants to grow. Now you can actually profit of the cool LED light and let your plants grow – day and night, independent of your light situation at home. With these enhanced growing conditions the little plants will grow into edible herbs and salads within a few weeks.

As you can see from my pictures I am somewhere in the middle of the process. Now I am letting the little plants grow and grow and grow. And hopefully I will soon harvest them and make my own salad for lunch – all home grown. Just like a real urban gardener!
