Is the PROLEAFY suitable for germination?

Absolutely! Germination can easily happen when the seed is placed in the wet growing media. Keep the covers closed for 2-3 days to improve germination success rate and open them after. You can use a variety of growing media from the supplied growing cups with perlite to other commercially available products like peat or coconut pellets.

How many plants can I grow at the same time?

There are 60 growing compartments, each one can be planted with different kind of crop plant.

Can I grow sprouts?

Yes! For best results soak the seeds in water overnight and then spread over a coconut paper (commercially available) in a dense thin layer. Cover the tray for 2-3 days using the supplied black cover. Sprouts should be ready to harvest after 5-7 days.

Depends on the plant type. It usually takes 4-8 weeks if you seed directly, and 2-4 weeks if you plant seedlings. Bear in mind that most plants will continue to grow and produce even after the first harvest (it is important not to pick the whole plant out of the soil). With easy planning you can guarantee a continuous supply of fresh vegetables and herbs year-round. From seeds it will take approximately 4-6 weeks to harvest greens like lettuce and arugula and spinach, and it will take 6-8 weeks for herbs such as coriander, parsley, basil and mint. Vegetables and fruits like tomatoes, chili peppers and strawberries can take 8-10 weeks. If started from seedlings, harvest time could be halved.
