To get started, you need a Harvy grow box. You can choose between two sizes – Harvy 3 and Harvy 6. We also have a complete kit with Harvy 3 that includes growing lights.
Harvy 3 has room for three grow plugs and Harvy 6 has room for six grow plugs.
All starter kits include:
1 grow box
6 pre-seeded plugs (basil and lettuce)
1 bottle of nutrition
During the darker months, you need to give your indoor cultivation extra lighting. For Harvy, we recommend our energy-efficient LED light bar.
The plant lighting is available in two sizes. The small one fits the Harvy 3 perfectly and the large one fits the Harvy 6.
With a suspension function with suction cups, you can easily place your lamp and Harvy on the kitchen counter or on a window sill. Make sure to include the hanging function in your order.
The starter kit includes 6 plugs with pre-sown seeds of basil and lettuce. But did you know that you can grow almost any upright growing seed in the Harvy grow box?
We also have specially developed seeds for hydroponic cultivation that you can find with us. For instance lettuce, herbs, and tomato.
Our Harvy starter kits include what you need to get started in the form of nutrition and pre-sown plugs.
But if you need to top up with nutrients, new plugs, and other seeds, you will find what you need with us.
Growing hydroponically means that you grow in water and add nutrients to the water. Growing hydroponically is easy. The only thing you need to do on an ongoing basis is to top up with water and nutrients. It is a quick way to grow and you can do it all year round.
Different kinds of leafy vegetables and spices work best in our Harvy grow boxes. But you can grow almost anything that grows upwards.
You can plant almost anything that grows. But we recommend that you stick to things that mostly grow above the surface. Carrots get a bit crowded in the plug baskets. Different kinds of leafy vegetables and spices work best.
In the summer and during the bright months of the year, daylight is usually enough. However, during winter and the dark months, you need to supplement with grow lights to get a good harvest.
After a couple of weeks, your seeds have usually had time to take root and are starting to show in your grow box. After a couple more weeks, you can often start to harvest.
Different seeds take a different amount of time to germinate. Lettuce, kale and pak choi start to look up already after a week or so. Basil and cilantro take a little longer. Parsley takes up to two weeks to germinate.
Dose 2 ml of nutrients per liter of water.
Every time you top up with water, you should also make sure to top up with nutrition.
It depends. Cultivation where the plants have grown large needs more water. But they can often manage without supervision for about two weeks. If you grow plants with large foliage or thirsty varieties such as tomatoes and cucumbers, you may need to add water every week.
*If your cultivation is very hot and sunny, you may need to add some water even before 3 weeks have passed. Just lift the lid and check that the roots reach the water.
